    i use my galaxy s5 for my studies,for search, for entertainment and for social media.Practically everything's good about it especially the camera's excellent quality : clear photos no blurs even if you shake the device, also it contains a lot of modes and editing tools, easy to download files and games... the only thing that bugs is the battery life but : the battery starts to drop real quick when you open a lot of apps at the same time

            Comments about Samsung Galaxy S5 Smartphone:

            In fact, the best phone I've ever used is fast, efficient and practical. I've always held many smart phones, but I had a lot of problems. For example, when I was carrying some games on the machine, it was slower, but with this phone a g solved all my problems. I would recommend everyone who sees this phone to buy it. At any price he will not regret it and when you buy this phone you will be able to live in a complete experience
