Not much has changed about the new Samsung Galaxy S5 when compared to previous generations as it still retains the recognisable Samsung appearance. It looks much like the Galaxy Note 3, it is squarer, more boring and bigger than Galaxy S4.
It does not feel like a smart phone when held. I do not see the benefit of a perforated rear cover which is suppose to give it a more natural feeling. It feels soft and nice to the touch but reminds you of a 3D wall paper style pasted on the wall, and that is bad.
A tacky looking chrome frame and the plastic body is a main disappointment for the Galaxy S5. A flagship phone should not be in a fancy plastic.
Samsung Galaxy S5 Features
Samsung added a water and dust resistance to this phone which is a huge design change. These are features which Sony has offered for some time now for its Xperia models. The Galaxy S5 also has an IP67 rating. This means that it can get wet or even be submerged in water without being damaged inside. It is also sealed completely from dust particles.
You need to double check that the microUSB port cover is always on and the back cover is clipped perfectly into place. The Samsung Galaxy S5 when launched is available in four colours -white, blue, black and copper gold. Vodafone has the exclusive network on the gold model.
