March 27, 2014 - Written By Nick Sutrich

Looking forward to Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S5? Are you on the fence about buying it or just can’t wait any longer to try the latest in mobile technology from Samsung?  Well if you’re in the UK you’re in luck, because starting right now Phones4U stores will have them up on display for all to see and play with.  The demo experience is limited to 10 stores though, so you’ll need to be in one of the following areas in order to try it: Birmingham, Bullring; Cambridge, Thurrock Lakeside; Cardiff, Queens Street; Crawley, Southampton; Glasgow, Dundee, Overgate Centre, London in Westfield White City, Stratford Westfield or Oxford Street; Manchester, Trafford Centre; Newcastle, Metrocentre Gateshead.

Not in one of those areas? You’re unfortunately going to have to travel or just wait til a shop near you has them to play with.  If you just want to get your very own Galaxy S5 you’ll be able to pre-order them on the Phones4U website starting tonight at 12:01 Midnight (March 28th technically).  Not totally up to speed on Samsung’s latest flagship device?  In that case the phone is a little bigger than the Galaxy S4 but features a slightly larger 5.1-inch 1080p display.  It’s flanked on the back by a brand new 16-megapixel camera with ISOCELL technology for improved pictures in lower light and with fast movement, as well as a brand new pocked soft-touch material on the back.  The phone itself is powered by a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801, 2GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB internal storage and removable SD card support.  You’ll also find a fingerprint reader in the home button and a heartrate sensor on the back.  Samsung has redone plenty of the old TouchWiz stylings and is packing this not only with a new version of TouchWiz, but also with the latest version of Android KitKat, version 4.4.2.  Oh and let’s not forget that the phone is water resistant to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes either,
