Finally, Samsung launched its most awaited high range Smartphone ‘Galaxy S5’ today. The phone was on the top in list of upcoming phones for a year and now available with its powerful and exceptional features. We got a look today at the launch event. Samsung Galaxy S5 is available for sale now in south Korea, two weeks early-which is a big surprise.
The device will be available for sale in other 150 countries from 11 April but launched two weeks early in South Korea.
Korean company wants to get hold the S5 phone in the hands of Smartphone fans soon because the company has no authority to sign up new customers in parts of April and May, punished by the government in the case of illegal subsidizing new consumers.
When we checked the device for short time, we found that Samsung has removed glossy plastic cover finally from this handset. Samsung had been using glossy plastic cover for a long time with all handsets which was the most loathed thing by the users. Now the Korean brand used plastic matte finish back cover, which provides soft grip. The cover is made with dotted pattern but the dots are small.
We felt changes in design and material of back cover is for good. Galaxy S5 gives better feel than its flagship predecessor Galaxy S4. However, the design and style does not match iPhone 5S or Sony Xperia Z1.
The device comes with large display however it makes feel light in weight. The phone has round edges and sleek body that fits in the hands properly.
The device gives premium look even there is not much metal in the body. The company is using metal frame for the phone which fits perfectly around the phone.
The all thee buttons- two touch-sensitive buttons for back and menu options and one physical button for home-exist below the screen. The company has not made any on screen buttons in S5.
