I had no intention of switching from my beloved Galaxy Note II and was not due for an upgrade, but I was switching cell phone companies. When you switch, you can’t take your cell phone with you. I loved my Galaxy Note II and still use it, but I decided on the Samsung S5 with my new cell phone company. I am an Android woman after all! I choose the Samsung Galaxy S5 because of the 16-megapixel camera, 5.1-inch 1080p Super AMOLED screen, water resistance, heart rate monitor and fingerprint reader. Whew!
I have had the Samsung Galaxy 5 for about a week now. What stands out to me the most? How vibrant the colors are on my phone. The display is amazing. The colors simply pop! I don’t know much about the processor, but was told that it was much faster. Reading emails, getting on Facebook, and searching on the internet has not presented with any hiccups, so I am happy there. This phone is a powerful smartphone! I definitely love all the features I am used to with Samsung including the newer features like Isis Wallet and private mode, of which I am still learning. I am also happy Samsung didn’t take away the apps that I liked such as the Drivemode and Google now (which has improved) and S voice.
If you are a fan of Samsung and Android you will love this phone. If you were entertaining the idea of looking at the Samsung Galaxy 5, it’s definitely worth checking it out.
