Best S5 Variant

Ketchapp has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

This phone is near-impossible to find in the EU, and costs almost 200$ more than its regular counterpart. However the Galaxy S5 LTE-A more than makes up for these cons by offering doubled screen resolution, an extra GB of RAM and an improved Snapdragon 805 chip, amongst other things. Overall, despite its scarce availability and hefty price tag, this is the most powerful Galaxy S5 variant currently available, and its state of the art hardware and software components well justify the upgrade.

The rear plastic back feels kinda cheep, but it does make for a good grip and feels solid enough.
Reception
10.0
Great reception everywhere, including underground and in remote/secluded areas.
Call quality
10.0
Crisp audio both ways, great speakerphone. Maximum volume is a notch too low sometimes.
Internet
10.0
Google Chrome is smooth and intuitive, and an all-around great browser. Stunning youtube in 2K HD.
Multimedia
10.0
Mind-Blowing graphics, the over-saturated colors make it stunning for both games and films. Great audio playback.
Camera
10.0
Good camera, highly efficient in both light and dark areas, surprising motion blur reduction.
UI speed
8.0
Touchwiz is laggy at best, even when provided with 3GB of RAM. Replace with a 3rd party launcher for best user experience.
Everyday usage
10.0
Amazing all-purpose phone, great for casual gaming, audio and media playback and obviously texting and calling.
Text input
10.0
The swipe keyboard really matters when typing with one hand, and the word prediction and autocorrection are rarely mistaken.
Display
10.0
The 2K Super AMOLED display provides amazing color riproduction both in and out doors. Stunning blacks but drab whites.
Battery
10.0
Plug it in every night before going to bed. Lasts about 8-9 hours of medium-heavy usage (3D Gaming, Media Playback and Web Browsing).

Pros

  • 2K Super AMOLED Display
  • Water Resistant IP67
  • Upgrade over S5

Cons

  • Cheap Plastic Design
  • Laggy Touchwiz UX
  • Scarcely Available

Best Phone at this current time

tagont has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Awesome phone I just upgraded from the Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE 32GB and so far I am wrapped with the phone. Would recommend anyone in Australia who is going to purchase a S5 to get the LTE-A version. The bump up from 16GB to 32GB with an extra GB of RAM and the 2K display is well worth the upgrade.
