As Shin puts it, "Our consumers do not want eye-popping technology or the most complex technology. What they want is durable design and performance. They want a simple yet powerful camera. They want faster, yet seamless connectivity." Faster connectivity, increased performance, and durable design with waterproof technology are some of the highlights of this smartphone.galaxy s5 images

"Our consumers want a phone that can help them stay fit", confirming the earlier rumors of Samsung Galaxy S5 having a focus on fitness and health tracking. However, not every consumer would be interested in fitness. Download Booster to speed up downloading on your smartphone is also here just like the rumors had claimed!
