Galaxy S5 now available in world wide. In India, the popular retail outlets are showed the device for its sale and service. Here we try to review the product based its first look.
The device has enables lot of features like water resistance, heart rate sensor and fingerprint reader. The fingerprint reader helps to bypass security passcodes on the device. The fingerprint reader features helps to prevent the theft attempt and related malpractices to the device.
The exclusive heart rate sensor is located on the back panel which measures your pulse. But the sensor doesn’t provide an uninterrupted sensing. However, you can hold your finger on the point about 5-6 seconds and enables the features. The sensor is located nearby the rear camera lens. The sensor information settings are stored the Health application of the device. The heart rate sensor features provides more comfort than Apple iPhone 5S’s heart rate sensor. Apple iPhone 5S is the pioneer product of the features.
Samsung also offers water resistance ability on the device which means you can manage the handset almost 3 feet deep in the water for up to 30 minutes. Unfortunately the handset splash down by the pool, or wetness on it during a rain, will guard itself. The Sony Xperia Z handset is able to protect itself almost 4.5 feet deep and wetness during a rain. The Sony device has multiple plastic covers which provide a total under water protection. But here the Samsung S5 has only one plastic cover. Certainly, the handset isn’t for under water use. But you can able to use the shooter under water and also listen to music.
Samsung Galaxy S5 has 16 mega pixels rear shooter which provides a descent picture quality even in bad light. But I think the camera doesn’t fulfill its huge 16 mega pixels professional output. Many indoor shots are blurred. If you compare with the 8 mega pixel Apple iPhone 5S camera results, the 16 mega pixels camera is little disappointed.
