Samsung's latest waterproof addition to the Galaxy S range is the best yet. With an excellent camera, fingerprint security, a Full HD Super AMOLED screen, 4G support for superfast downloads and web browsing and fitness apps to keep you in shape, this is a smartphone that's almost peerless.
In a handset brimming with stunning features, the Galaxy S5's 16-megapixel camera might just be the one that most stands out. Because it's equipped with the world’s fastest auto-focus of up to 0.3 seconds and offers enriched colours, you can expect glorious snaps each and every time. It's great at video as well and records crisp 4K UHD footage that looks beyond brilliant when you watch it back on the phone's 5.1-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display.
And Samsung's latest and greatest won't let you down in difficult conditions either. IP 57-certified, the Galaxy S5 is dust and water resistant and can be submerged in a metre of water for up to half an hour and will be as good as new. That makes it ideal for anyone who can't be trusted with their phone around water.
Worried storing senstive data and bank details on your smartphone? Don't be: the Galaxy S5 has got your back. Thanks to its fingerprint scanner in the home button, it can only be unlocked by a swipe from your finger. Better still is that this extra layer of security also makes paying for goods with your phones a lot more secure.
Speed is another strong suit of this handset, with 4G LTE and support for the newest, fastest fifth-gen Wi-Fi standards. That means you’ll get a lot more done in the same time and enjoy seamless video and games streaming.
And Samsung's exclusive Download Booster technology makes things even faster. This bonds 4G and Wi-Fi together to send your connection speeds rocketing and slash the time it takes to get your hands on video and music downloads.
To ensure you don't get left behind by all this speed, the Galaxy S5 comes with a suite of apps to help you stay in shape. As well as a heart-rate sensor that's customised to each user, there are diet and exercise record-keepers and a pedometer. The only downside is that the Galaxy S5 can't actually do the hard yards for you.
Finally, the brilliant Power Saving Mode is a life-saver. Turn this on and the display reverts to a low-power black and white format and all background apps are switched off. This really helps eke out your battery - a boon when you're waiting for an important call.
Other features of the fantastic Galaxy S5 include a secondary two-megapixel camera, a quad-core 2.5 GHz Krait 400 processor, Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box, 16GB of internal storage and the option to expand this by up to 128GB by adding a microSD card.
As with all Android phones, the Galaxy S5's offers a selection of tens of thousands of apps and games from the Android Market.
