Look and Feel Nice and light, the Galaxy S5 has a perforated polycarbonate back panel. Feels grippy and durable.
Defining Features Fingerprint scanner for easy logins, an improved camera and what’s this? A heart rate sensor.
Core Functionality User friendly design, excellent battery life and a fantastic camera.
Recommended For Android fans, photographers, multimedia junkies, business users.

The Bottom Line The Galaxy S5 puts the best of Samsung’s design and engineering in the palm of your hand. Its camera, user experience, battery life and added features are great. My only reservations would be the performance of both the fingerprint scanner and the processor in anecdotal comparisons to the iPhone 5s. The heart rate sensor was disappointing, but oh well. It’s just a gimmick anyway.
