Function over khung. The Samsung Galaxy S5 ($660, or $27.50/month) is America"s best-performing smartphone, bringing excellent voice unique, a terrific camera, speedy performance, & the best screen we"ve sầu seen on a handheld yet. It"s better than last year"s Galaxy S4 in a bunch of ways, most notably in actually exercising restraint for the first time in a while. Mainstream điện thoại thông minh fans, people who lượt thích to lớn surf the Web, & shutterbugs will thrill lớn this Mã Sản Phẩm, making it one of our two Editors" Choices for T-điện thoại smartphones.

But that"s the thing—the Galaxy S5 doesn"t st& alone, và why it doesn"t stvà alone is telling. Samsung simply can"t figure out premium design, at least from an American perspective. I spoke to the designers behind the S5, & they declared its plastic size khổng lồ be "modern glam" with a "warmth and softness" (as well as a removable battery) that isn"t available on glass-and-metal phones. But hold the S5 next to our other Editors" Choice on T-điện thoại, the Smartphone HTC One (M8), and the S5 doesn"t feel like the expensive sầu one.

Physical FeaturesThe Galaxy S5 still has an uncomfortable relationship with its own materials. At 5.85 by 2.85 by .31 inches (HWD) và 5.1 ounces, it"s a big phone, but that"s par for the course nowadays. It"s all plastic. The bachồng is a stippled, textured faux-leather, borrowed from the Galaxy cảnh báo series, which is a major step up from the slichồng, fingerprint-collecting casing on the Galaxy S4. The bachồng comes in blachồng, xanh, gold, or white. The design is almost ruined, in my mind, by a cheap chromed-plastic bezel. You"ll learn to lớn live with it, but I didn"t learn to lớn love sầu it. Near the top, a useful colored LED blinks blue when you have sầu a new message. On the bottom, a large micro USB 3.0 port promises fast charging & fast data transfer in exchange for needing to be covered by a silver plastic door. A physical Home button with dedicated, light-up bachồng & multitasking buttons are a little more convenient than the purely virtual buttons on the Smartphone HTC One.
