Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus is an absolutely amazing device launched back in the year 2014, provisioned with a pretty big 5.1-inches capacitive screen, an exceptional Quad-Core processor ticking at 2500 megahertz, a 16 mega-pixels back side camera and a 2.1 MP front side camera.

Samsung decided to build the S5 Plus using an extremely fast Quad-Core processor running at 2.5 GHz, included in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084 chip and a large 2 GB of RAM. Graphic calculations often consume lots of CPU processing time, so it uses an Adreno 420 graphic processing unit speeding at 500 megahertz to improve overall performance. A nice point of this device is its big 16 GB internal storage memory and an external memory card slot, allowing you to store a couple hundred games and apps without any trouble.

This device is available in multiple color options, black, blue, white and gold. Whereas this phone is just 5.59" long, it's still able to fit a a 5.1" display. Being just 0.32" thick,this cellphone is extremely thin and good-looking. This cellphone feels much lighter than what one would think about a cellphone this size.

Samsung equipped this phone with a great 5.1-inches display, and a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution, providing this cellphone with a very detailed graphical experience. Its display uses Super AMOLED capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

This cellphone provides WiFi capability (which it can provide to other devices around, acting as a wireless router or modem), LTE-A 4G super fast connection type and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a slower 4G technology) and 3G fast internet connection, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone uses a Micro SIM card to use GSM services.

The S5 Plus features two cameras, a 16 megapixels back facing camera and a 2.1 mega-pixels front-facing camera. Its back facing camera lens has a maximum 2.2 aperture so it can capture great photographs even in low lighting environments. This phone can also capture videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 fps. The camera also has multiple interesting characteristics: flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, HDR mode and geo tagging.

The S5 Plus also comes with a wide range of interesting features like Fingerprint Scanner, NFC (Near Field Communication), Infrared Blaster, Bluetooth (4.0) and GPS, and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The S5 Plus counts with an inmense 2800 mAh Li-Ion replaceable battery providing this phone a quite long battery life. This cellphone has an aproximate 390 hours stand by time and a 21 hs talk time.

Samsung offers this phone for 249 dollars, which is somewhat expensive for a cellphone this level. No matter if you want a device for gaming, you love taking pictures, want it mainly for social networks or want this phone for work, this cellphone is a great option .
