- Reception and call quality Very sublime, absolutely no issues. Except, S5 is not very fast at updating network availability. After moving from no reception to good reception areas.
- Display The display is the best part about the phone.Absolutely splendid, Samsung really hit their mark here. You never get tired of it.
- Battery life Even after a whole day of usage(provided your brightness is set to Auto)I still have around 12% remaining which is quite a big deal when you compared with 5s.
- Camera Again, another bulls-eye by Samsung. The camera is also one of the best parts about the phone.Though,irritably the camera app takes 5 seconds to launch.
- Ease of use Very easy to use. You don't even need to get the hang of it. Touchwiz UI makes key features readily available in the drop down menu
- Design and form factor I wouldn't call this a very beautiful phone, but it's look shows for what it's worth. The new perforated back panel makes handling this 5.1 inch giant very easy
- Portability (size / weight) Yes, despite being very large it is incredibly light weight. The new back panel provides excellent grip even when your hands are sweaty.
- Media support Never had any problems here.
- Durability Giving this a 4 because i haven't dropped it as yet :-). But in the hand, it feels solid
- Ecosystem (apps, accessories, etc.) Despite it's very impressive specs and processing abilities, apps open very very slowly at times, making you question your choice of this product.
