- “On the surface, Samsung seems to have not changed much, but why should they?” — Ron Amadeo, Ars Technica.
- “I really liked the Galaxy S4, in all its excess, and so did a lot of people; it was a big hit. The S5 isn’t going to change any minds.” — Sascha Segan, PC Magazine.
- “The device is bigger, faster, and more powerful than ever, but like usual, Samsung is hoping that some of its phones’ more unique features — like a heart-rate monitor and fingerprint scanner — will help it to stand out.” — Jacob Kastrenakes, The Verge.
- “All told, it’s very much a run-of-the-mill Galaxy S flagship, but there are enough new hardware features and software tweaks to make it feel fresh.” Brad Molen, Engadget.
- “Unless you’re unusually excited about a fingerprint sensor or understand what Samsung means by the “modern glam” look that it tells us the Galaxy S5 possesses, it’s hard to see why anyone goes out of their way to upgrade to this phone.” — Eric Mack, Forbes.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 will be available sometime in April.
