Another year, another Galaxy. This time we have the Samsung Galaxy S5, the latest flagship Android smartphone from the South Korean giant. The device was announced at a special event at the 2014 Mobile World Congress, and here’s our rundown of the specs, features and anything else you might care to know.
What does it look like?
A bit like the Samsung Galaxy S4, actually, only a bit bigger because the Galaxy S5 has a bigger display. Plastic is very much the order of the day, which may or may not be a good thing depending on your view of the Galaxy S5’s predecessors.
Thanks to an IP67 rating, the Galaxy S5 does, however, benefit from being dustproof – it should survive the dustiest conditions – and water-resistant, not waterproof. Not best to drop it in the bath or toilet, then, but a quick retrieval could save the day.
