Technical Features:

Inside the Samsung Galaxy S5, a modern Snapdragon 801 operates with 4 cores which are each betaktet 2.5GHz. Thus Samsung built the currently second-best processor from Qualcomm. Ahead was speculated that possibly the Snapdragon 805 (2.7 GHz), will be part of the specification. And up to the clock rate both CPUs same anyway, because both versions are based on the Krait 400 core.

The display comes up with a diagonal of at least 5.1 inches, which dissolves 1920 ×1080 pixels with full HD. The pixel density is 432 ppi. When 2 GB RAM is available, what the high-end range standard is practically known. The internal space is practically sufficient size to 16 GB, but can be increased via MicroSD to 64 GB.

No wishes remain open here for the most demanding customers actually. Starting with the support of all common WLAN standards, to wireless AC. The latter enables wireless connections up to 300 Mbit/s. The smartphone dominated moreover not “only” LTE, but also the latest expression of the category 4. If you book an appropriate mobile tariff from network providers, user can be so happy about data rates up to 150 Mbit/s. Even the so-called carrier aggregation is supported – a part of the LTE-Advanced specification that will allow for even higher speeds in the mobile network.

The camera has a resolution of 16 megapixels and brings an innovative new function regarding HDR photography. HDR images are photos with an increased dynamic range, they are so far only to create quite cumbersome. Firstly several bracketing must always be (best with tripod) created and then be cumbersome added together with special programs. Samsung now provides for the first time a live HDR mode, which allows such images directly and in real time.


Also new is a temperature and pulse sensor, and a fingerprint scanner, like the iPhone S5,  which is intended as an alternative password to unlock the device or during payment transactions.

Differences between Galaxy S5 and S4

Whoever keeps the S5 and S4 in the hand, will make two observations in a direct comparison. Once the minimal bigger screen (0.1 inches) and especially the ridged back, which now has a leather-like feel. Otherwise can be at least visually hardly notice differences. This hidden mainly under the surface. In Galaxy S4 , a Snapdragon 600 chipset with a comparatively modest 1.9 GHz is used. In addition, the resolution of the camera was “only” 12 megapixels. Samsung also upgrade 200mAh battery from 2600 to 2800 mAh, which should correspond to a whopping 40 hours more standby time. When display the differences between the two models, however, are marginal. Both Super AMOLED screens have full HD – the pixel density is higher at S5, which, however, are unlikely to detect. All the new features are gained by contrast, a minimally elevated total weight of 15 grams. In addition, hopefully the stability of the display has been improved. There were unfortunately very many complaints from customers for Galaxy S4, which display that, even without great force, is torn. Here time will tell whether Samsung has reworked at the point.

Technical features

Unfortunately, Samsung has turn a stripped down version of the new S5 brought to Europe: While the Korean original model called “S5 LTE-A” with a Quad HD resolution provided, you have to be satisfied with Full HD (1,080 x 1,920 pixels). The memory is not also 3, but only 2 gigabytes. For the internal memory, it remains a meager 16 GB which can be expanded via micro SD card by a whopping 128 GB, however.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 could support the LTE-Advanced network. With LTE Cat6, up to 300 Mbit/s download speed is possible in the already-developed cities. Samsung’s “download booster” allows for simultaneous data transfer via LTE and Wi-Fi: The booster uses a bundling technology to combine Wi-Fi and LTE together and promises so again much faster data transfers – if that makes any sense. The Galaxy S5 also comes with the version of the Google operating system Android 4.4.4 aka KitKat, which among other things, supporting the upcoming Speech Technology Voice over LTE (VoLTE) with itself.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge New Smartphone Review

The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge is the premium version of Samsung Galaxy S7. The design is largely identical, but the display is slightly larger than the Galaxy S7 and at the sides with 5.5 inches, the display is very rounded, just as you would already know from the previous Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. Also the battery with 3600 mAh is slightly more than the normal Galaxy S7, so that the operating time is likely to be slightly better. In this article, you can see first impressions and some pictures from the Galaxy S7 Edge.

Galaxy S7 Edge Appearance

The Samsung Galaxy 7 edge is very well made like its predecessor. On the front and on the back, glass is used, the frame at the sides consists of metal. This device feels good in his hand. With the large 5.5 inch display, the S7 Edge can’t be operated with one hand, for writing and for quick use you need both hands. In my opinion, the Galaxy S7, not S7 edge, with a smaller display will be better for one hand use, but larger displays are so popular. As we can see, the Galaxy S7 edge is in the color silver, while the fingerprints are highly visible. The chic “emerald green” of Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is no longer available. The Galaxy S7 edge is available in silver, black, white and gold.   The Galaxy S7 edge is protected against water and dust and is IP68 certified, like the predecessor model Samsung Galaxy S5. Unlike this phone, the connectors for headphones and microUSB are however open and are not protected by flaps. The 12 megapixel camera is not as strong as the old model Galaxy S6 edge.

Galaxy S7 Edge Storage and camera

Another new feature concerns the storage equipment compared to the previous. The Galaxy S7 edge has 4 gigabytes of memory and either 32 or 64 gigabytes of internal memory. Furthermore, an extension of the internal memory via MicroSD card is possible, according to Samsung, it could support SD card up to 200 gigabytes. In some regions, there is a hybrid SIM slot where you can insert either two nano SIM card or a SIM card and a memory card. In some areas, the Galaxy S7 edge unfortunately only appears as a single-SIM variant. The camera should have been significantly improved compared to the Galaxy S6 edge again. The aperture of F1.7 promises particularly good photos in low light, so for example at dusk. The resolution is only 12 megapixels for photos. Nevertheless, the picture quality will be better, because the individual pixels are larger. Videos can be further incorporated with 4K resolution.   Compared to the Galaxy S6 edge, the camera of the Galaxy S7 edge stands out barely out of the case, it looks much better.


The Samsung Galaxy S7 edge will be available from 11 March on This refers to the version with 32GB of internal memory, when the more expensive version with 64 GB will be offered, is not yet known. The colors you can choose are black, white and gold.
