HD Video Recording
Brilliant in Any Situation

HD display. And enjoy a perfect viewing situation, no matter where you are, as your screen dynamically adjusts to compensate for ambient light.
Easily Take Stunning Photos
A powerful, yet easy-to-use 16-megapixel camera lets you capture the moment as it’s happening with large-print quality detail. And with the new Selective Focus feature, you can easily select elements to focus on — and the things you want to blur out — to create a feeling of depth.
Keep Track of Your Health
The Galaxy S5 features the first-ever built-in heart rate sensor, and together with the S Health™ app, it makes tracking your health and fitness goals a lot easier. You can also use S Health to get on-demand nutritional information and the built-in pedometer helps track your steps and calories burned.†
Whether you’re running in the rain, or just catching up on your garden, now you won’t be afraid to take your phone along with you. The Galaxy S5 is designed to be dustproof and water-resistant.***
No more worrying about, or taking the time to enter your password. Now you can unlock your phone quickly and easily, just by scanning your fingerprint on the lock screen.
