This device is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chip, packing a great Quad-Core CPU clocking at 2500 MHz and a huge 2 GB RAM memory. Graphic calculations often consume lots of processing time, so the S5 uses an additional 500 megahertz Adreno 420 graphics processing unit to take some work out of the CPU. The S5 counts with anice 16 GB internal storage memory and a slot for an external memory card, which allows you to install a couple hundred applications without running out of space.

This phone features two cameras, a 16 megapixels back side camera and a 2.1 mega-pixels front facing camera. this cellphone's back side camera has a F2.2 aperture so it can capture impressive photos even in dark conditions. It is also able to shoot videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 30 fps, and 1280x720 HD slow motion videos up to 120 fps (4 times slower than regular videos). In addition, the camera has lots of amazing features: flash, auto-focus, digital image stabilization, fast burst mode, HDR mode, face detection shooting and geo tagging.

The S5 includes WiFi capability (and it can be provided to other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G , the fastest connection type or fast 3G internet connection, using HSPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The S5 works with a SIM card for GSM networks.

This device counts with a huge 2800 mAh Li-Ion replaceable battery, which isn't very much for a cellphone like this.

The S5 also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth cellphones and accessories), Fingerprint Identification, GPS Navigation, Infrared Port and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

Samsung is offering the S5 for just 165 dollars, which is incredibly cheap for a great phone like this.
