Informative and to the point, I like that was not aware that it had suport for up to 128 GB that will be a welcomed featured.
I am most impressed with the Galaxy S5 ability to shoot Ulra High Definition Video (4K) and the new and very fast auto focus, cant count the many times the slow auto focus has messed up my shots.
The 128 GB expansion capacity is definitely a plus point for this device … Thanks for stopping by !
Thanks for such a nice post Salman, I am new in this blogging world and its just a month i have started my blog on latest mobile phones. and trying to make good content like you.
Samsung is at it again with its flagship smartphone! The big points about this new model are the water/dust proof capability, fingerprint sensor and a huge memory expansion slot of up to 128 GB.

Samsung’s getting too excited to release successors of their successful devices, but not caring much about innovation. I can’t really see many new features that will make a person upgrade from the Galaxy S4 to the new S5. People expected more.
Exactly … there’s nothing much exciting for a S4 user to upgrade to S5
Very nice article. You have described every feature and specifications of S5. Keep sharing like this.
Thanks for letting us know that it’s now available on Saholic. But I prefer not to upgrade from my Galaxy S4 as of now, I will wait for the next flagship device in the ‘S’ series.
Most of the S4 users have the same thing to say … Thanks for stopping by 🙂
I’ve used Samsung Galaxy S4, the experience is awesome. Waiting eagerly to use Galaxy S5 as well.
Still using a samsung s3 mobile which was gifted by someone and I guess I’m gonna plan to order samsung galaxy s5.
