Once upon a time, Ap­ple ruled the smart­phone roost, but Sam­sung has given its ri­val some­thing to think about in re­cent years. The Galaxy S5 is a sure-fire chal­lenger for the smart­phone crown and cer­tainly the most pop­u­lar phone that Sam­sung has cre­ated.

The Galaxy S5 boasts im­pres­sive specs in­clud­ing a gor­geous 5.1-inch dis­play, a 2.5GHz quad-core pro­ces­sor and a gen­er­ous 2GB RAM. It’s a per­fect hand­set for play­ing games, util­is­ing a va­ri­ety of apps, watch­ing videos and for day-to-day us­age.

The snap-happy out there will be glad to hear that the Galaxy S5 fea­tures a high-qual­ity 16 megapixel rear-fac­ing cam­era. With ei­ther 16GB or 32GB in­ter­nal stor­age, which is ex­pand­able via the use of a mi­croSD card, you’ll have plenty of space for all your pre­cious pho­tos along with your apps, games and other me­dia con­tent.

Sam­sung was one of the first com­pa­nies to start look­ing at what smart­phones could of­fer fit­ness en­thu­si­asts or sim­ply those who wanted to do a lit­tle more ex­er­cise. At its most ba­sic level, the Galaxy S5 will track your steps and show you over time how of­ten you hit the rec­om­mended tar­get of 10,000 steps per day. Mean­while, a heart rate mon­i­tor keeps tabs on your key met­rics so you know if you need to slack off or if you can push your­self a lit­tle harder

The Sam­sung Galaxy S5 is a fan­tas­tic de­vice with plenty of bang for your buck. Whether you’re hop­ing to get a lit­tle health­ier or you take your fit­ness se­ri­ously, the Galaxy S5 is a worth­while com­pan­ion. As a whole, the Galaxy S5 has specs that im­press, all wrapped up in an at­trac­tive pack­age.
