Samsung Galaxy S5 Specs, Special Features, Price and Release Date in the Philippines

By Daniel Gubalane on Feb 24, 2014

Photography on Galaxy S5 has very interesting upgrades both for the hardware and the software aspects. Instead of the usual 13MP sensor, it now has a 16MP main camera with 0.3s delay between shots and 3.2MP for the front.

Aside from the 4K video recording we’ve mentioned above, Samsung Galaxy S5 also has the ability to change the focus of the image after it has been taken. This is similar to Nokia’s Refocus app.

This makes us think more about Samsung’s strategy. Have they run out of new ideas and are just copying what others have done?

Samsung Galaxy S5 Networks and Connectivity

Galaxy S5 has LTE but what’s more interesting is its ability to use this and a Wi-Fi connection at the same time for an insanely fast internet speed.
