I am happy with the features this phone comes with ( not the bloatware ). The waterproof is great, being around grandkids a lot (and being clumsy ) was one thing that sold me. I also love the rapid charge and the fact the you can use a regular micro USB charger if necessary. There are so many features I can't list them all! It comes with android 5,which fixes do many things that were wrong. Best phone, by far!

I am a Samsung fan. I own 2 Samsung TV's and now am on my second Samsung smartphone. although I loved my Galaxy Note 2, I wanted some a little smaller but with the features I was used to, hence the Galaxy S5. It has great battery life, its fast and has many great apps for fitness, social, email, etc. Can't say that I will ever look at another phone in the future!

I have found that this phone is very user friendly. It is very easy to text with as the keys are large enough.
