While there are certainly later models available, the Samsung Galaxy S5 is still a perfectly viable phone that can be updated to Android 6.0 and had for a bargain. An impressive 5.1-inch Full HD display and IP67 water resistance make this a good phone for everyday usage.
How’s the screen?
The Super-AMOLED display promises lusciously contrasted imagery, with truer blacks and richer, more vibrant colours, and the 1,080 x 1,920 resolution on the 5.1-inch screen offers High Definition and clarity.
Will the battery survive a full day of use?
Of the phone’s released around the same time as the Galaxy S5, this 2,8000mAh offering from Samsung far outlasted the competition. You’ll easily get a full day’s battery life out of this, even with watching videos and frequent use, and the average user should get a day and a half of moderate use.
Does it have the brawn to back up the beauty?
An impressive Snapdragon 801 chipset powers the Galaxy S5, along with 2GB of RAM. This doesn’t necessarily compete with modern flagships, but is an impressive offering for the price and still is plenty powerful enough for your average user.
