The long awaited An­droid gad­get is fi­nally in town and here’s our take on it.

The Form

In terms of ap­pear­ance the Sam­sung Galaxy S5 is just a tad bit longer than the S4 due to a larger screen. But what truly puts the S5 ahead of the S4 is its cam­era func­tion. Get ready for sharp, high-def­i­ni­tion pic­tures with the S5’s 16-megapixel rear cam­era.

What’s New

The S Health app on the new model has also been de­signed to be more user-friendly with a sim­ple in­ter­face and a new func­tion that tracks your heart rate which is a def­i­nite plus for fit­ness junkies. Another func­tion that has been get­ting a lot of buzz is the fin­ger scan­ner. By slid­ing your fin­ger against the screen you can not only un­lock the phone but even process pay­ments via apps like PayPal and log in to Sam­sung Hub.

The Down­side

Un­for­tu­nately, un­like the fin­ger­print scan­ner on the iPhone 5S which un­locks with just one touch, the Galaxy S5 re­quires you to slide your fin­ger against the screen a num­ber of times for it to suc­cess­fully scan your fin­ger.
