The Samsung Galaxy S5 is starting to get a bit old, but for $159 it’s hard to pass it up if you need a new smartphone. Amazon has it as part of their Gold Box Deal of Day offer today, offering up a certified refurbished model for just $159. That is a pretty good price, and cheaper than what you’d find on eBay for a GSM unlocked model (the Verizon unlocked model is running around $149). For those that may have forgotten, the Galaxy S5 sports a 5.1-inch 1920×1080 resolution Super AMOLED display. This was their last flagship smartphone with a 1080p display. It also sported the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM and a removable 2800mAH battery. Yes this was their last Galaxy S with a removable battery (Galaxy Note 4 was the last phone).
When you look at the specs for the Galaxy S5, it still stacks up quite well with many of the smartphones being sold today. Definitely better than some of the mid-range smartphones as well. Considering this is right around the price of the ASUS Zenfone 2. Now this one is sold by Woot at Amazon, and you do get a 90-day Woot warranty on the Galaxy S5. So should anything go wrong in the first three months, you’ll be covered.
