Sprint Product Ambassador: Three Reasons You Should Consider The Samsung Galaxy S5


If you're someone who has been hanging on to your Galaxy S3 or another 2+ year old device simply becasue it still works you should definitely consider an upgrade.  Samsung’s new flagship device is here again.  Here are some reasons to consider upgrading to the Galaxy S5.

Dust and Water Resistant

The device is resistant to sweat, rain, liquids, sand and dust.  It has IP67 certification, meaning the device can be submerged in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes.  Amazingly Samsung was able to provide this feature without adding much bulk to the device at all – it’s still as thin and light as ever.  Keep in mind, the device is water resistant – not to be confused with water proof.


Increased Battery Life

The Galaxy S5 ships with a 2800 mAh Lithium Ion Battery which is capable of providing up to 19 hours of talk time.  I’ve been using the device for a few days now and getting through the day shouldn’t be a problem for most users.  Samsung is also touting its new Ultra Power Saving Mode, which, in emergency situations can provide up to 24 hours of juice on just a mere 10% battery life.  How does it do this?  This feature changes your screen to black and white and turns off unnecessary features – allowing for more time to do the basic features such as calls, messaging and web browsing.


Improved Camera

The Galaxy S5 has a 16 MP -- up from the 13 MP camera on last year's model and the 8 MP shooter on the Galaxy S3.  As usual, Samsung has included a great camera and there are a ton of software add-ons.  The shutter speed is FAST and the camera is also capable of recording in 4K resolution.  There is also a 2 MP camera on the front for selfies and video chats.
