The world of smartphones moves fast. It seems like only yesterday that Samsung was announcing the release of its latest, greatest model: The Samsung Galaxy S5.
These days, the Galaxy S5 is a few years old, and so it’s probably not going to get any oohs and aahs from your friends and coworkers anymore. However, Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is still a great phone. It has some powerful specs to its name and offers some clear advantages over its successors at a significantly lower price.
Here’s five reasons why the Galaxy S5 is still a great smartphone choice.
One of the biggest selling points of the Galaxy S5 was and still is its battery. To begin with, it’s removable, which means you can bring an extra battery along for the ride and replace it in a snap. Switching batteries is not possible in either the Galaxy S6 and S7.
At 2800 mAh (milliamp hours), it’s also larger than the battery in the Galaxy S6, and according to some reviews, lasts longer as well.
