The first reviews for Samsung’s Galaxy S5 are flowing in, but has the new phone made a big enough impression?
“The Galaxy S5 is the result of a company going back to the drawing board, scrapping the pointless gimmicks that so infuriated on the Galaxy S4 and bringing out a smartphone based on the tenets it reckons users really want.”
“The Galaxy S5 has a great camera, strong screen, impressive packaging, a waterproof casing and a blazingly fast engine pumping things along.
“But it doesn’t have an amazing camera, incredible battery life, stunning design or genuinely innovative feature, and that cause a few people to wait and see what the competition brings before deciding that this (likely pretty pricey) handset is for them.”
“The Samsung Galaxy S5 is a phone that looks and feels like another top-end S-series mobile. It offers loads of new features, and some much-needed improvements to the Samsung interface. However, we’re not sure that all that many people will care about all of its new bits.”
