"The Samsung Galaxy S5"

The Samsung Galaxy S5

I have been using the Samsung Galaxy range of phones for quite a few years now. I started with the Galaxy Ace, then I got the S3 and now I am using the S5. Before I got the S5, I temporarily got a windows phone and although the phone was good, I was unhappy with the difference and decided to go back to using the Samsung phone and purchase a Galaxy S5 in October 2015 this year. I purchase the phone on a monthly contract through the phone provider 3 for the price of £20 a month, on a two year contract.

The battery talk time is very good and it is much better that the previous Galaxy phones and a little bit of charge lasts a long time.

The durability and robustness of the phone is good so far and I have purchased a good phone cover so that the screen does not crack! I am able to use the WI-FI and mobile internet on the phone and the internet quality on the phone is quite good in both instances. I have downloaded apps like facebook, twitter and instagram on the phone and the apps work really fast and I am able to interact well on the phone. The best thing I like about this phone, is the S Health monitor which measures how many steps you take a day. It can also measure your heartbeat and your stress levels.

Conclusion

I would definitely recommend that you but the Galaxy S5 because it is one of the best designed phones that exist!

Product Information : Samsung GALAXY S5 4G 16GB

Manufacturer's product description

Galaxy S5 offers the excellent viewing experience a smartphone can offer. Its FHD Super AMOLED display is brighter with more clarity, delivering a deeper and more vivid screen view. Galaxy S5's advanced local contrast enhancement enables it to adapt and change according to the variation in light conditions. Under the sun or too much light, Galaxy S5 gives you an optimized display for you to see clearly and easily. On the other hand, when there is a lack of light, Galaxy S5 allows you to dim your display light so that your eyes feel more comfortable in the dark.
