You can't go hands-on with the Galaxy S5 yet, but we spent time with the new smartphone when it was announced in February to see how good the build quality is, if features work and to take a closer look at the Galaxy S5 software.

In this first video we look at the Galaxy S5 hardware and features such as design, a fingerprint scanner and more.

We also go hands-on with the Galaxy S5 software to see what the new TouchWiz looks like and how the camera performs.

I think I prefer my iPhone not some plastic junk and a early 2000s look samsung still has it’s samcrap!!! My iPhone will also have better resale value a year later not the galaxy as much!! The galaxy is for people who can’t pop up the ca$H for an iPhone!! Samsung that’s so Walmart!!! Nuf said!!

    You know a 16 GB iPhone and a 16 GB Galaxy phone with an upgrade/new contract are the same price, right Larry? The fingerprint scanner was originally an Android idea from 4-5 years ago.

    One thing that’s not going to make me buy a galaxy is the customer service. And they do not cover water damage for a waterproof phone? Iphone goes beyond the bells and whistles.

    What’s makes me stop from saying my Samsung wasn’t suppose to stop working when I was swimming or showering? It’s suppose to be water resistant, I see that line being hard to describe and things getting real fuzzy when you try to get your phone switched out. Good luck for anyone that buys that phone.

    Almost the same article every year, try the samsung g3, g4 and now 5; I am an iphone user and every time I have tried any Samsung they are buggy, freeze up and the apps do not have a smooth interface. Granted they have a bigger screen, but so will the next iphone. As for battery I’ve never seen one person carry any extra battery to switch into their phone, so maybe all the fuss about a removable back is so that when it does freeze up you can pull the battery to restart. The great thing about any iphone is it holds it’s value. No other phone comes close.

    Truth… That’s the REAL TRUTH iPhones are best!! My co worker at my shop had the ss gs4 and yep it froze up like a ice storm now he has an iPhone and is better off, problem the samsungs value was only 100 bucks, an iPhone 3GS goes close to 150 bucks on Ebay that’s almost 5 years ago would a samsung do that? Nope!! Let’s see how the gs5 goes and read all the issues to come on it lol lol

    Lol.

    Split screen capability is one feature that I love on android and my samsung. Can view youtube and whatsapp or facebook and youtube at the same time.

    Im due an upgrade soon so s5 might be the way forward.

    Wifi direct also another excellent android feature.

    As for iphones, not a big fan of apple simply for not having a ‘back’ button.

    Resale value doesn’t bother me as mobile phones are designed to be disposable.

    @ Larry- 6 figures clearly doesn’t buy you class or the ability to provide yourself and education. Good job.

      So you have ADHD as well as being thick! Grammar and spelling doesn’t take concentration if your educated, what a clown you really are. If you really had a six figure salary you wouldn’t be concerned about re-selling your phone.

    Yes motorola atrix was the first with a fingerprint scanner in 2011, but isheep see one on theres and think it was the first. But with samsung its not halfbaked you can actually use it to purchase online with paypal. Its not just another gimmick like the iphones scanner which really dosent do much! bit like there maps dosent do much and a bit like siri pretty useless.

      Who taught Larry how to write? Somehow I doubt he’ll ever be a brand ambassador for Apple. Daddy had to give him a way to make a buck because nobody wants to hire 26 year old teenager.

    I am an iPhone 6 user. Galaxy was not an alternative. Speed or anything else are not issues.

    Because,
    1. It is too ugly big.
    2. I don’t need a copy cat.
    3. I believe they stole all from Japan and the US.
    4. I feel ashamed and even guilty with it.
    5. Ther are more reasons not to have Samson galaxy.
