S5 camera provides a sharper, clearer and more vibrant images. Scroll down for sample photos taken using the Galaxy S5.

Camera:  Fast AF, HDR (Richtone), and Selective Focus features.

  • The first cuts the auto-focus response time from the usual 1 second to only 0.3 second fast AF; the fastest ever for a smartphone to date.The precision and speed was made possible courtesy of the PDAF Module. This feature enables the smartphone to capture moving objects with ease like in sports photography.
  • HDR, or High Dynamic Range makes photos more realistic

Ultra power saving mode for longer operating time.
- Don't worry if you ran out of battery, S5 will turn the display into black and white but it will not shut down. It will also turn off the apps except the SMS so you can still send messages to your loved one especially during critical moments.

Finger scanner

  • All it takes is swipe your finger to make payments
  • you can even access important documents such as a copy of passport in private mode. 

With S Health, it comes with a pedometer, exercise and calorie count. Galaxy S5  is the first smartphone that comes with a heart rate sensor. To check your heart rate, you just need to touch the sensor located at the back of the phone.
