Samsung Galaxy S5 Hands On

The highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5 is finally here! We spent some quality hands-on time with the new flagship, which features a 5.1-inch 1080p display, 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.4.2 and some other really neat features, like a heart rate monitor. 

The Ga laxy S5 has been slightly redesigned from the Galaxy S 4, and surprisingly it has not taken after its Note 3 sibling and adopted a faux leather back. The S5 is styled more like the Moto X with a dimpled and rubberized coating on the back that gives it a nice in-hand feel. Samsung's new phone is running the latest version of Android along with a new UX that’s a slight departure from TouchWiz. Throughout the design you can see that this is an evolution of the version of TouchWiz found on previous S models, but this one borrows a bit from Samsung's Magazine UX and stock Android. This overlay turned out to be a nice and much-needed change.

Some of the other features found on the Galaxy S5 include a larger battery, 16-megapixel rear camera with 4K video recording and a fingerprint reader. Be sure to keep it locked to PhoneDog for much more content on the new Samsung Galaxy S5!
