Samsung’s smarter smartphone. The Galaxy S5 arrives. I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. It has a better camera and a slightly larger screen than the Galaxy S4 and improved battery life too. But one of the things users may like most about Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 is its ability to survive in the real world. Marketing Manager Philip Berne…
“You get one meter, about thirty minutes of water resistance. You could drop it into a bath tub, you could drop it into the pool with you. You’ll be totally fine there. It’s great against dust. If you get it dirty you can just wash it off under the sink. It’s really nice and convenient for that.”
The phone is meeting with some criticism for its plastic case. But Samsung has added a dimpled back to make it less slippery to hold. On the plus side…it has a memory card slot and a user replaceable battery. The S5 is available at all major carriers with Verizon offering a two for one deal. You can find us at BootCamp.com.
