The age-old battle between the best smartphones on the market, Apple and Samsung seems to be firing up. Samsung made its move with the Galaxy S5 – a new smartphone with a myriad of new features, such as the dust and water proofing. We don’t know much about the new iPhone 6, although rumors are circulating that indicate the new iPhone 6 will have a sapphire glass display. If that is truly the case, then Apple’s move will be legendary.
Samsung Galaxy S5 Review
There hasn’t been much change to the design of the Galaxy S5; the phone does come in four colors and has some new and awesome hardware features: a fingerprint scanner (of course!), a heart rate sensor and it is water and dust proof. Samsung’s previous strategy when it came to new features, was to shove every new thing they could into the phone, but it seems they’ve learned their lesson… from Apple.
A Samsung Galaxy S5 review also reveals a great new camera, which is stunning – it offers 16 MP on the back of the phone with a video capture of 4k resolution! Just to make you understand how awesome that is: the screen of the device itself doesn’t manage that resolution, but only 1080p, so the video will look even more stunning on a television or computer screen. This move will most certainly force Apple to upgrade their new iPhone 6 video camera.
There is also a microSD slot and Download Booster software which basically combines LTE and Wi-Fi for amazing download speeds.
One of the biggest complaints about the new Samsung Galaxy S5 was that casing still remains the plastic it’s made from. While other high-end smartphones have switched to using more sleek and durable materials, such as glass and metal, Samsung seems to like its plastic.
The Galaxy S5 is expected to be released to the public on April 11, 2014, but exact prices and availability are still unknown, so for the time being, you can just Google the smartphone and put it on your wish list.
