13 Reasons Why You’ll Love the Samsung Galaxy S5

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is from 2013 which means that it uses Samsung's old design language. Samsung no longer builds flagships out of plastic. Instead, they're made out of solid build materials. But that's come with some trade-offs. 

The Galaxy S6 (and maybe the Galaxy Note 5) might come with a design made of glass and metal but it comes without several key features including a microSD card slot for expandable storage. The Galaxy S5 allows you to expand up to 256GB or more, huge for those of you that are dealing with a lot of files. 

MicroSD cards aren't necessary for a lot of people but it's nice to have that option available, just in case you need to add some storage for photos or other files down the road.

    Uhhhh, the Samsung Galaxy S5 was released in 2014, not 2013.

      Gottabemobile probably have a copy/paste template that they use every year. Typically the same content/words except they change the device names/dates/version number. Looks like they forgot to change the date this time.

      Very typical of gottabemobile. This is why their articles are getting old and boring. It’s always the same old “we have been using it for blah blah blah and it’s impressive blah blah blah”. Sure they probably made some changes here and there, but 80% is pure repetition from the previous years.

    I’ve been using one for 15 months and it’s still my favorite phone of all time. The only issue I have ever had with it is the charging port waterwater cover didn’t lock into place after the first 8 months, making it less than water resistant down to a 1 foot depth as advertised. But it’s gotten wet more than a dozen times and no damage. It’s been in an Otterbox Commuter since new and been dropped onto concrete floors more than a dozen times and no damage, it’s a tough phone! At the price point for a new one now, 15 months ago it was $800.00, it’s a great value for the money. I highly recommend it.
