Galaxy S5

Samsung’s flagship Galaxy line has created a niche of its own and undoubtedly, this is the only line from any cellphone manufacturer in market right now that is giving a direct competition to Apple’s iPhones. The Galaxy line has seen one of the best smartphones of the market, most noticeably the Samsung Galaxy S II, the original eye-turner and ever since Samsung has been continually giving us a reason to switch to the latest model every year. The Samsung Galaxy S5 is no different. The phone does not only offers general hardware upgrades  like the camera and cpu but is one of the pioneers to announce an integrated heart-rate sensor and a finger print scanner, which is also PayPal certified, by the way!

The heart-rate sensor makes more sense when we talk about Samsung Gear – an android wear line by Samsung which along with the Galaxy S5 promises to keep track of your health and help you achieve your health related goals of all sorts and the catch is, you’d have no excuse for the rainy days! Yup, the Galaxy S5 is also water-resistant!

This all is added with a little different back-cover, which would satisfy the superficial crowd and quite honestly not only the superficial crowd.
