Revolutionary or Evolutionary Upgrade for Galaxy S5?

While more of an evolutionary step up from the Galaxy S4 than a revolutionary upgrade, the Samsung Galaxy S5 offers a variety of enhancements over its predecessor. Feature additions and changes in the Galaxy S5 smartphone include a slightly larger display (5.1 inches) to go along with a new dust- and water-resistant casing, a built-in fingerprint reader that can be used for secure storage and mobile payments, numerous camera upgrades, an upgraded mobile operating system (Android 4.4 KitKat), and more.

The Galaxy S5 was also designed with health and fitness in mind, adding unique new features like a built-in Heart Rate Sensor and an improved S Health personal fitness tracker. The Samsung S5 also offers connectivity with other Samsung devices like the Samsung Gear Fit and Gear 2 for enhanced fitness monitoring.
