Samsung Galaxy S5 – coming soon.

It’s back and it means business. Or at least, health, anyway.

The 4G ready Samsung Galaxy S5 is the latest Samsung flagship device that builds on the amazing success of the S4.

There’s a faster processor (2.5 Ghz), a bigger screen (5.1 inch), a better camera (16MP), not to mention Android 4.4.2 (the delectable Kit Kat)

Samsung have really raised the bar with the S5 in many ways; not only is the camera now 16MP, but it’s got a super speedy auto-focus (0.3 seconds) with advanced High Dynamic Range (HDR) which in layman’s terms basically means the camera is able to reproduce natural light and colour with vivid intensity, even when the subject may be poorly lit. There’s also the pretty nifty Selective Focus feature, which lets you focus on a specific area whilst simultaneously blurring out the background, so you can create really professional looking photos. Voice command to actually take photos just makes the whole experience even quicker and easier.

Samsung are also billing this smartphone as the ‘life innovator’ and all the amazing health-based features, are really testament to this.  S health includes a pedometer (learning how many steps you’ve taken each day is surprisingly addictive!), comprehensive diet and exercise records and a heart rate monitor. A personal fitness tracker, to help you monitor and manage your behaviour, is also included. You’ll be fighting fit before you know it!

You’ll experience impressive connectivity speeds not only with 4G, which you’ll get as standard on Three, but also something called Download Booster, which is a Wi-Fi technology that boosts data speed by bonding Wi-Fi and 4G simultaneously.

The iconic Samsung design is modified slightly to include a modern perforated pattern on the back cover, which has been ergonomically designed so it’s less likely to slip from your hand. And they’ve brought more variety to the table this time, as the S5 comes in a variety of colours.

From a more practical point of view the S5 is now completely dust resistant, and is water resistant if submerged up to 1 metre. If you’re out and about and know you won’t have access to a power source for some time, there’s no need to worry. The really handy Ultra Power Saving Mode changes your screen to black and white and shuts down any unnecessary features meaning the battery can last up to 24hrs with just 10% battery left; we think this is something of a godsend!

The S5 is really packed full of features that can make your life easier and better. If you imagine all of this with 4G at no extra cost, International Roaming that comes out of your existing bundle* and All You Can Eat data, the combination of Three and the S5 is a pretty formidable one.

    @Kyle – The 4.4 update for the Galaxy S4 is still under testing, therefore we don’t have any specific dates for the release at the moment.

    I wonder how much this will cost on contract, hopefully not more than £35 a month I.e for all you can eat data plus minimum 600 minutes a month. I have been on sim only contract with 3 since last year but will consider the galaxy S5 if contract and its terms remain within reason.

    @Mark We’re not sure of the release date yet. Thanks, Pamela

  16. mark

  17. Matt

    Well said jim , will go else where if they don’t play ball

    @Jim Brown That’s correct Jim – upgrades are normally for customers who have completed most of their minimum term and are ready for a new phone. If anyone wants to upgrade earlier, the line rental for the remainder of the contract will have to be paid first. Sorry you’re not happy though. Thanks, Pamela

  19. Matt Farley

    My upgrade is due at end of march so will order this as soon as I possibly can.

  20. jim brown

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Why bother people with advertising upgrades to this new S5 phone….when you charge the bloody earth to get out of existing contracts…….ie if I had a year left on my contract at £30 a month ..you would want £360 just for me to upgrade.. now that makes sense …NOT
