Samsung Galaxy S5 is just $1 through Saturday at Best Buy, with a signed two-year pact
This might be the Black Friday sale to end all sales, at least when it comes to smartphones. From now through Saturday at Best Buy, you can buy the Samsung Galaxy S5 for just $1 with a signed two-year pact. And the deal is available to those on Verizon, Sprint or AT&T. If you are a member of Verizon Edge, AT&T Next or Sprint Easy Pay, you can put "$0" down (if well-qualified), and receive a $50 gift card. You will then have to come up with the monthly installment payments.

It has been some time since we've looked at the Galaxy S5, so let's revisit the specs. The phone is equipped with a 5.1 inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. That works out to a pixel density of 432ppi. Under the hood is a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU with an Adreno 330 GPU crunching graphics. 2GB of RAM is on board and there is 32GB of native storage available. Those needing more memory can use the 128GB capacity microSD slot. The back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 16MP and 2.1MP, respectively, and the 2800mAh battery keeps the lights on. Android 4.4.2 is pre-installed.

Keep in mind that we could see the Samsung Galaxy S6 introduced in February at MWC. There are rumors that Samsung has redesigned its next flagship from scratch.
