The fifth generation of the Galaxy S series, the Samsung Galaxy S5, is a new change not only in terms of performance, but in the design plane. The brand takes a further leap in quality with the completion of its new flagship in high-quality plastic materials, especially with regard to the part of the back shell. It also has a renewed TouchWiz graphical interface, new features such as Download Booster and the latest version of Android so far, Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
Design and size
Aesthetically, the Samsung Galaxy S5 sports a housing made of plastic, although the level of finishes has improved, especially that of the back. In this area we find a material that emulates being skin, although with a gummy touch and perforations along the back cover that will be available in black, electric blue, pearl white and gold. As for the frontal, no outstanding changes are detected. The rounded forms are still the predominant note, although the upper part grows slightly in size.
In this regard it should be noted that the manufacturer states that the Galaxy S5 measures 142 millimeters long by 72.5 millimeters wide, slightly higher than the Samsung Galaxy S4. In thickness of the equipment also increases slightly up to 8.1 millimeters, as well as the weight, of 145 grams, possibly as an impact of including a battery of greater capacity and the use of a cover of thicker and more resistant materials. At this point it is also interesting to note that Samsung has chosen to offer a waterproof housing with the IP67 certificate. This would close the doors to a hypothetical Samsung Galaxy S5 Active.
Screen and cameras
The official presentation of the Samsung Galaxy S5 finally reveals that the team has a Super AMOLED HD screen of 5.1 inches and FullHD resolution. In turn, it is protected by a Gorilla Glass 3 protective layer.
The camera has not only gained in resolution with the introduction of a 16 megapixel sensor. Optical stabilization for photos and video has also been included. Within this section it is also worth noting the capacity of the model to record video in Ultra High Definition or UHD -4K- at 30 fps or FullHD at 60 frames per second. Another feature in this section is the speed with which the set focuses and shoots. The firm measures the delay in just 0.3 seconds. At this point, the focus also adds another feature, which is the selective approach so that the user can choose which object will appear clearly in the photograph.
Similarly Samsung has improved the software suite available, but also the interface itself. The company will continue to entrust the optimization of the values of the camera to the different modes preconfigured and optimized for each situation. However, the firm has introduced a new section in Samsung Apps from which other additional modes can be downloaded. The HDR filter has also been optimized to achieve the most outstanding photographic results.
The other camera, the secondary – frontal – includes a sensor of two megapixels that is mainly intended for video calls and self-portraits.
Processor, memory and connectivity
The pure features of the Samsung Galaxy S5 are mainly determined by the processor, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 with higher frequencies to the original chip. In these terms highlight the 2.5 GHz of the CPU, although the GPU also improves in this regard. These technical details allow the smartphone to increase in proportion to its performance, which translates into greater system fluidity and graphic power. The 2 GB of RAM will also be a key point for the device to be able to offer a satisfactory user experience. As for the storage system, the basic version will remain the 16 GB, although as usual in the Galaxy range, it will have a slot for microSD memory cards with which to expand the internal capacity.
The wireless connectivity of the new model incorporates some outstanding novelties, such as the support for 4G networks under a wide range of frequencies. The WiFi connection is another section in which we see improvements such as the expansion of the IEEE 802.11ac standard and MIMO technology, which will allow more data transfer through this wireless connection. It also incorporates as a novelty the function Download Booster, utility that will allow to unite the download capacity of the 4G and WiFi connection at the same time to achieve maximum transfer rates of up to 450 Mbps. The Bluetooth is 4.0 with a low energy profile (LE ). Another novelty is the incorporation of the ANT standard to connect the device with other compatible accessories.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 will not only incorporate the list of sensors that were present in the Samsung Galaxy S4, but will add to the benefits chapter as many others. One of these is the heart rate sensor, which is in the same area where the camera’s LED flash is positioned. This will improve the performance of Samsung S Health 3.0, the application specifically created for athletes. In turn, the new Galaxy incorporates a fingerprint reader that is located on the Home physical button with which to unlock the initial screen, although it will also assume other functions such as confirmation of payments through PayPal and its new application included in the software of the team.
The fifth generation of the Galaxy S will increase the capacity of the battery by 8% compared to the previous version set at 2,800 mAh. According to the data offered by the manufacturer, this battery will be able to offer autonomy times of up to 390 hours in standby and 21 hours in conversation. Also new is the introduction of an energy saving mode, called Ultra Power Saving Mode. Among the possible configurations is the possibility of activating the screen in black and white.
The Galaxy S5 debuts on the market with the latest version of Android, 4.4.2 KitKat and comes with a very renewed TouchWiz graphical interface. The company continues to include Magazine UX on the home screen, although the settings menu changes significantly, with larger icons and new design, now round and differentiated by colors.
