Samsung Galaxy S5

Description

With a 5.1" 1080p screen, 16 MP camera and 2 GB of RAM, the Galaxy S5 might not be the utmost specs beast that the Android world has to offer, but it comes with plenty of new features, both in comparison with its predecessor, the S4, and when measured up to the other flagships. The heart beat sensor, for instance, is unique for the Galaxy S5, while something like the Finger Scanner can also be observed on the iPhone 5s, but in a rather different implementation. Samsung also introduced two new launch colors, including Copper Gold, and a brand new perforated design for the rear cover. The addition of Snapdragon 801 chipset brings on LTE-A download speeds, and 4K video recording, to an already superb handset.

This device is also known as Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900A, Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900T, Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900P, Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900V, Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900R4, Samsung Galaxy S5 Developer Edition
