A Review Of The Samsung Galaxy S5

Today I am going to review one of the most important smartphones of 2014 – the Samsung Galaxy S5. The Galaxy S5 is the latest flagship device of the Galaxy S series and it was just launched at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

A Review Of The Samsung Galaxy S5

Display & Design

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is quite similar in design to the Galaxy S4, it has a very similar design language with rounded corners and a metal trim alongside. The only major difference in design and hardware is actually on the back.

The back features a soft touch finish with a dimple patter, it really feels a lot nicer than Samsung’s older glossy finishes, it feels very similar to the Note 3 without the leather looks but otherwise it feels pretty much like the Galaxy S4 in your hand.

The phone comes in with a 5.1 inch display with a capacitive button for multitasking and a new fingerprint scanning home button on the front. You can still take the back cover off to access the battery and the SIM card slot.This is definitely a Samsung phone as it has got all of Samsung’s apps and helpers and things like that.

Hardware & Software

On the back of the device you can find a 16 megapixel camera, a LED flash and a new heart rate sensor that uses your fingertip to measure your heart rate. The phone has a micro SD card as well and a 2100 mAh battery that Samsung says gets 20% better battery life than the Galaxy S4.

Inside the Galaxy S5 is a quad core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz and 2GB of RAM, this is what makes the phone really fast and responsive. There is actually no lag that I can particularly see, the interface is definitely very familiar to Samsung users even if there are some slight differences.

For example, if you swipe over the home screen you can access the My Magazine feature which was available with a swipe-up in the Note 3 but otherwise it is a pretty standard home screen. The settings menu and the tabs are gone for a more icon based approach and it is running Android 4.4.2.

The great thing is that S-health has been greatly improved in addition to the heart rate sensor on the back. It has a new exercise coach and pedometer and it has the ability to be expanded with third party apps that can tap into that Samsung feature that they will release soon.

The heart rate sensor uses the sensor near the LED on the back and in order to use it you just need to place your fingertip on it and it will give you a reading for your heart rate in about 5 to 10 seconds.

Samsung is going to be releasing the Galaxy S5 in a variety of different colored backs, there is blue, black gold and white so depending on which market it will be released the color will be available but in the U.S. they are going to launch the Black and White model.

Samsung Galaxy S3 details revealed – Rumor

Samsung Galaxy S3 may be launching on May 3rd at the event being held in London. So what sort of device could we be looking at? It may be coming out in black, white and possibly blue. It should come in both 16GB and 32GB capacities, as well as with a 1080p Full HD display, a quad-core Exynos processor, and 4G LTE connectivity. This should be an awesome phone to replace my Sprint Evo 4G, so keep a lookout for this phone on May 3rd. Will it actually come out that day maybe, maybe not, but I hope so.

Mobile Phone Expectations for 2012

Technology geeks and mobile phone fans always look forward to January and February, two winter months not often getting good face time with people. In January of each year, we look forward to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV, USA. That opening act is followed by the Mobile World Congress in February. Both shows are highlight events for every manufacturer of mobile phones and other mobile gadgets around the world. The CES 2012 and the MWC 2012 have lots of exciting expectations already lined up for mobile phone fanatics.

Samsung v. Apple

Samsung has long been the runner-up to Apple, but 2011 has seen Samsung vault into the front-runner status with the tremendous popularity of the Samsung Galaxy S II as Apple fans get tired and aggravated while waiting for the iPhone 5. They were given the iPhone 4S instead, and many were happy.

Apple will be enjoying its final year at CES in 2012; it will not be at CES 2013. Samsung is already gearing up to outmanueuver Apple in this year’s show. They plan on taking the Samsung brand of tablets and mobile phones far beyond Apple’s profile reach.

New, faster processor chips are one of the elements involved in Samsung’s game plan. Samsung joined others recently in a joint venture to produce their own microprocessor chips that will open new speed floodgates. As smartphones incorporate new technological advancements, users are expecting – and apparently will get – even faster speeds. The 2 GHz mark has already been broken. Will 2.4 GHz or higher become the new norm?

RAM Expansion

Elpida has already shipped prototype RAM chips to a few larger manufacturers. Elpida is expected to fully market its LPDDR3 RAM chip that can stack to 2GHz RAM and present a 12.8 gigabyte-per-second speed, far beyond other RAM chips of the common DDR2 variety.

As almost an added bonus, the new Elpida RAM chip produces less heat and uses less power to operate – definitely positive aspects that will appeal to both manufacturers and users who rely more and more on their mobile phones and smartphones for all their communication and web surfing needs.

It would surprise few that some of the models being announced just prior to or during either the CES 2012 or the MWC 2012 may come to market with the new chip kid on the block nestled firmly inside smartphone bodies.

Screen Sizes

Once upon a not long ago, display screens in mobile devices were considered large if they met four inches on the diagonal. Today, that four-inch mark has become “average” or “nothing special.” The much-touted iPhone 5, whose availability schedule has been off-put from November to December 2011 to March 2012 to June 2012 and recently to Autumn 2012, still sports that four-inch screen.

Samsung, LG, HTC, Motorola and others have brought the screen size average up to approximately 4.3 inches for smartphones, and one even boasts a screen size of more than five inches.

It’s very difficult to downsize size dimensions once the barrier has been broken, and only the increasing popularity of wrist smartphones have scored inroads with small screens. Many mobile phone manufacturers have done quite well with 3.5- and 3.7-inch screens, but unless a QWERTY keyboard is attached, expect presentations in both CES and MWC 2012 to sport larger, high-resolution display screens.
