Samsung Galaxy S5 Review

SGS5 Hypes:

The SGS4 has been one of the most wildly popular innovations of post modern era. On the other hand, the exciting news for 2014 is the Samsung Galaxy S5. Though it has not yet been launched, numerous specs presented on its official website have given us a good idea about what to expect from the upcoming Korean flagship smartphone. Will it sweep us off our feet like its super enchanting predecessor? Let’s discover some of the outstanding features of the phone and find out the images of the expected SGS5. However, folks looking forward to the gadget should not worry about Samsung Galaxy S5 price being unreasonably high owing to its additional accomplishments.

Nice Textured Exterior:

As usual with Samsung S series, the present device too comes with an extra elegant plastic body that is nice textured. An air of confidence and brilliance emanates from the every inch of its exterior, thus leaving the onlookers mouth-watered. However, contrary to the earlier rumor, leaks and speculations, the gadget comes in plastic and, this time too, the manufacturers didn’t switch to the metal body.

Larger and Sharper Display:

The SGS4 amazed the world with its 5 inches of display. Manufacturers are now presenting an even more striking screen which is slightly larger and sharper. But with 5.1 inches, the size cannot be expected to go beyond the screen length of Note 3 which is 5.7 inches. Therefore, the boundaries between the smartphone and phablet are well maintained.

The resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels is just marvelous, while the pixel density as well comes up to the expectation of the potential buyers, that is, 432 PPI. It is expected that the touchscreen technology will remain the same as found in its predecessor, that is, Super AMOLED. In addition, the capacitive touchscreen, featuring TouchWiz UI, will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

With these tweaked up specs, you should be mentally prepared for a very high Samsung Galaxy S5 price in Pakistan.

Dust and Water Resistance:

One of the most wonderful accomplishments in the gadget is that it comes with high water resistance feature, as you can submerge it up to three feet deep into water for as long as 30 minutes. Such an exceptional quality makes it much more durable than an average smartphone. In addition to water resistance, it also repels dust to avoid corrosion of its super elegant exterior, and for both these characteristics, it has earned IP67 ratings.

KitKat to be Seen with TouchWiz:

Like other smartphones and tablets by the company, SGS5 will also be seen with Android’s KitKat OS along with Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface. KitKat’s latest 4.4.2 version will be running the phone. Together with these, the fabulous OS and UI will allow fast multitasking. It will also enable voice activation of the device without pressing the on/off buttons.

The screenshots have shown what the UI is expected to look like. Some tweaks have modified some home screens as well as the lock screen. The widgets will now appear in squares locking together. This looks a lot like the popular Magazine UI which has recently been introduced to the company’s upcoming business tabs: Galaxy Tab Pro series.

Retina Scanner and Fingerprint Detector:

The luxurious and expensive gadget will be packed with satisfactory security features. An advanced retina scanner and fingerprint detector will keep intruders away. The latter will sit under the phone’s screen, detecting all moves made by your fingers. Some previous gadgets were already using eye detection for the SmartStay and SmartPause apps to turn the screen or videos on and off automatically corresponding to your eye movements as detected by the front cam. Addition of an eye scanner is going to introduce an advanced security feature in the phone.

Misc Details:

The new phone’s camera is expected to be enhanced from 13 MP to 16 MP. The complete package will offer dual-shot functionality, simultaneous HD shooting and video recording, image stabilization, auto-focus, touch focus, LED flash, HDR and face detection. Plus, the front camera will also be amazing with 2 MP at your disposal. This is quite a high resolution for a secondary camera which is usually found in the best smartphones.

The exceptionally featured phone will bring 2GB RAM along with 16 and 32 GB built-in memory options. Of course, the additional memory card slot has not been left out, and it supports upto 128 GB microSD card. In addition, a SIM card slot is also present. Manufacturers have given the phone a boost of power with a 2800 mAh battery. This is definitely going to offer more longevity than the 2600 mAh battery pack of SGS4.

The world doesn’t have to wait too long for the real specs as the phone itself will be out in the market soon. The expected time for its release is April 2014. Hopefully SGS5 will also rock the world like its big bro.
