13 Reasons Why You’ll Love the Samsung Galaxy S5



Removable Battery

Removable Battery

The Galaxy S6 comes with a battery that delivers a charge that's on par with the Galaxy S5's but what if you need more firepower? Well, the Galaxy S6 design locks you into the stock battery while the Galaxy S5 design allows you to remove the back and tack on an extended battery for more juice. 

We almost always buy an extended battery for phones that are compatible and we absolutely love the extra battery life that comes with it. Batteries can be expensive but it's worth the investment if you're constantly on your phone.

Having a removable battery is also key if you need to replace it. Instead of having to send it in or bring it to a repair shop, you can just remove the back of the Galaxy S5 and install a stock battery or extended battery on your own.

    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.
