Samsung made a very nice job making this phone as lightweight as 5.11 ounces. Samsung is offering this phone in many colors like black, blue, white and gold. Whereas this cellphone just has 5.59 inches long, it's able to fit a a 5.1" display. This cellphone is incredibly thin and good-looking, being just 0.32" thick.

Samsung designed the S5 Plus with a gorgeous 5.1 inches display, and a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution, which makes everything look absolutely perfect. Its display uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

Samsung decided to power the S5 Plus using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084 system chip, holding an extremely fast 2500 MHz Quad-Core processing unit with a large 2 GB of RAM. Handling graphic calculations, it also has an Adreno 420 graphic processing unit running at 500 megahertz. This phone counts with a 16 GB quite large internal memory and a slot for an external memory card, enough to install a couple hundred games and apps without running out of space.

This cellphone counts with wi-fi connection (and it can provide it to other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) super fast internet connection and also HSPA+ internet connection, which is a slower 4G variation or the fastest 3G internet connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The S5 Plus uses a Micro SIM card for GSM carriers.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 16 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 2.1 MP front-facing camera. Its back-facing camera lens has a maximum f/2.2 aperture so it can shoot beautiful pictures even in low-light conditions. It is also able to capture 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 fps. Additionally, this cellphone's camera also features many amazing characteristics like auto-focus, flash, digital image stabilization, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This cellphone uses a 2800 mAh long lasting Li-Ion replaceable battery that can keep this cellphone running for many hours, although you may find yourself looking for a place to charge it if you use it heavily. According to Samsung, this phone has a reported 21 hours talk time and a 390 hours stand by time.

This cellphone also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), Fingerprint Identification, GPS Localization, Infrared Port and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.
