Samsung Galaxy S5 Editor Rating: 

The Galaxy S5 feels comfortable to hold in the hand which is an important factor. The screen as always looks fantastic and brings bright vivid color reproduction. When it comes to the camera, the Galaxy S5 takes a pretty great picture thanks to the 16MP auto-focus sensor, and there are a plethora of image options. One of the most useful features though is the Ultra Power Saving mode which can allow for up to 24 hours of uptime with only 10% battery life left. It has plenty of storage space with 16GB or 32GB options and the ability to grab expandable storage via the microSD up to 128GB. It played games very well, and multitasking was easy without any foreseeable lag. It also charges really quickly and the download booster is fantastic for grabbing larger files in quicker times.
