    You prolly shan't believe today's article's conclusion. But don't just read the conclusion, you naughty men. Read the whole thing. 'Tis a long, detailed review of Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone, covering specification, dimensions, look & feel, usability, ergonomics, Android operating system and the new Material Design, system options and settings, Google play store and applications, security, multimedia playback - MP3, HD video and availability of content in the store, camera, battery life, comparison to other smartphones, overall considerations, and more. Enjoy.

    I like the S5 for the removable battery and microSD card slot.

    Didnt bother looking at the new S6.

    Really doesn't need a removable battery. It has a 3500mAh battery and lasts all day easily. As far as the microsd, 32gb is plenty for me, but that's my opinion, I'm sure others need more storage.

    More to do with replacing a worn out battery at around a years use for me.

    I try to get 2 years out of a smartphone.

    Galaxy S5 is a pretty good android smartphone, much better than the predecessors and in some ways better than the sucessor too. (S6 is almost perfect but has some trade offs)

    I've just got one question - why did you wait so long, even after S6 was released, to review S5?

    You did read the review. Someone gave it to me. A free gift. I didn't buy it. I wouldn't buy it for myself. Besides, what does it matter.

    Yeah, I read most of it.
    I was just curious.
