"The phone is of great quality. Camera great. Very speedy Android 4.4.2. The fingerprint and heart rate sensor are a great addition and once set up correctly work perfectly."

Samsung Galaxy S5 overview

Samsung's latest flagship device, the Galaxy S5 comes with a whole host of upgrades. The new design can survive 30 minutes submerged in water thanks to covered, connecting ports and an inner seal behind the perforated back plate, preventing water from creeping past the seams. Running off the latest Android KitKat operating system, the 5.1-inch AMOLED display is crisp and bright, giving you the best viewing experience day and night.

With its 2.5 GHz processor and a 2800 mAh battery to keep you going strong in between charges, apps will launch quickly, giving you more time to enjoy the other neat features packed into the phone. The 16MP shooter is very fast, launching in just 0.3 seconds and its auto-focus is even quicker. The new fingerprint scanner will also unlock your phone, verify PayPal payments for mobile shopping and verify your Samsung account. How neat is that?
