Samsung, the Korean Electronics company, had released their latest, most anticipated phone product, Samsung Galaxy S5, for the world to see on April 11, 2014. They’ve placed a precise emphasis on an improved quality on the body, dust and water resistance and a more sophisticated user experience. There’s also new security features such as a fingerprint reader with a private mode, a heart rate monitor, and if that wasn’t enough, they updated the camera plus features.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 uses a higher quality soft plastic and is said to improve your hand grip. It is certified for dust resistance and with water resistance in up to 3.3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes. The S5 screen display size is a 5.1 inch – which is slightly larger than the S4. It allows for automatic brightness and gamut adjustments. The S5’s micro-USB 3.0 port also now uses a removable cover.
Now for those of you who love taking pictures on your phone, you will love the Samsung S5 Camera and their features. It includes a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera, offering a 4K of video recording, and a 0.3 second phase detection autofocus. There’s a real time HDR photo and video and an impressive image sensor with Samsung‘s “Isocell technology which isolates the individual pixels inside the sensor to improve its ability to capture light.” On the rear of the S5 device is the heart rate sensor, located right next to the camera’s flash.
The Download Booster tool allows large downloads to be split across LTE and WiFi to improve speed. Also a neat feature on the S5 phone is this Private Mode which allows users to sustain hidden apps and file folders that cannot gain access to without additional verification.
With its software containing an Ultra Power Saving mode to supplement an extended battery life when enabled, all non-essential processes are limited and the screen switches to only rendering in white on black. Samsung claims that with Ultra Power Saving on, the S5 phone with 10% charge remaining can last for an additional 24 hours in standby mode.
The Samsung has gotten mixed reviews about the S5 mobile, saying that it’s not an accurate advancement of the previous model neither does it contain adequate or substantial changes for current Galaxy S4 owners. However the S5 received mostly positive reviews for “improvements on the image quality provided by its Isocell image sensor.”
World Liberty TV had the pleasure of reviewing the Samsung Galaxy S5 Phone. They liked it so much that they made it the official phone for WLTV.
