I love the size and the memory available. The camera is awesome, better than my digital camera. I also appreciate the water resistance as I experienced problems with this with prior phones. We recently vacationed in Yellowstone and the Tetons. The pictures were much higher quality than my digital camera. Panorama shots and video were also better and the camera on the S5 was easier to use.

Before I had gotten this phone I had done a ton of research on the specs, design, reviews, and overall quality of the Galaxy S5. I have to say, they were all true! I absolutely love this phone. It is an easy to use, user friendly phone which is great. I use my phone for everything and the ease with which to use this phone works great for my life. With kids, I love having the waterproof sealing because you never know when your phone will get soaked. I love that when you unplug from the charger it reminds you to close the bottom to keep it from being damaged with water. I would highly recommend this phone to anyone, and everyone I have recommended this phone has gone out, bought it, and love it as much as I do!

This is my second S5, and it outperforms my first one by a mile! After the screen on my first S5 died (less than one year after purchasing it), and T-mobile quickly replaced it with a new S5. I have to say, the first one must have just been a faulty phone overall, because it frequently overheated, restarted on its own, the battery drained too fast, and the phone just wasn't as quick as I thought it would be. This second one is absolutely fantastic! The phone performs at high speed, is sleek and light, and is one of the most durable phones I've ever owned. The power saving options allow the battery to last forever, the picture quality is unparalleled, and I don't have to be terrified of a little rain anymore when I'm out with my phone. After I bought the S5, three of my family members went and purchased the exact same phone and are equally impressed. My only gripe is that for some reason the focus doesn't work well on close up pictures, but other than that the camera takes...
