Samsung Galaxy S® 5 (U.S. Cellular), Shimmery White

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 94 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stands up I preordered my Galaxy S5 and was rewarded for the decision in July when my phone accidentally fell into the pond from the top of my pick up cab. Several feet in water for several hours, since we were swimming and didn't realize it was in the pond, but still worked when recovered. Old phones would have had to been replaced by insurance or other pains. My confidence was reaffirmed at that point. The S Health app is also a good tool wrapping other items into one location. Plan on gettin the Gear 2 at some point to help keep track of things. Could use some software and hardware tweeks, the Fingerprint scanner has its issues with consistant recognition, like the security but having to swipe several times to get accuracy to log in is a pain when attempting to access information in a hurry. But overall wonderful and durable phone for the pricing. January 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 Great phone!! I have enjoyed my new S5 immensely! The speed and performance is impressive and the battery life has been impressive thus far. My only complaint is that it isn't a world phone as my carrier has deleted the quad band capabilities... but while I'm in the States it works great!! November 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Galaxy5 I was reluctant to try this phone because of the larger size, however it isn't that much bigger. I've had No problems with the phone thus far. I had the Galaxy & really liked that, but this phone is more asvanced. I'm not sure if I will use everything on the phone, but no complaints here. The battery life is great! ! November 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent phone overall I upgraded from the S4 to the S5 3 months ago. I gave my S4 to my daughter who was thrilled to have it. Before I upgraded, I noticed several people with S5s by the amazing screen that they were using. I would have to go over and get a closer look and sure enough, it was an S5. Awesome color and detail on this phone. I also knew that the processor had been upgraded generously and I wanted that too. This phone has not disappointed me in the least. I have had no problems or issues that a few people have claimed to have had. Awesome display and really fast, with little or no lag. I work outdoors alot in construction and I was caught in a downpour recently, I was pleased to have a water resistant phone that wouldn't be compromised by a little rain. I do have issues with the fingerprint scanner, because it is not reliable. Many times I have to swipe my thumb 2 or 3 times to get it to work but it does work I guess. I think that there are too many little options that come with touchwiz that I will never use but overall the UI is great once you get used to it. The camera takes good pictures except in low light situations but works pretty well. Now that I have said all this, I have to say I will upgrade to the Note 4 asap. After playing with the Note 4 demo and reading the reviews, I am already to upgrade to the Note 4. I still highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a great display and a fast processor. This phone will not disappoint most people. October 25, 2014
