In 2014, Samsung made the last flagship Galaxy S device to have their fan favourite features: removable back cover and battery, expandable storage and a resilient plastic construction.
2015 saw Samsung change the design of the Galaxy S range to a sealed metal and glass direction, however many customers still wanted an update with the older style.
For those looking to upgrade to a Galaxy S but not interested in the S6, the S5 Neo was developed as somewhere in between.
This has all of the design cues of the original Galaxy S5, including the IP67 water and dust resistance and dimpled soft-touch back panel, with updates suitable for 2015 such as Android 5.1.1 Lollipop running right out of the box.
Samsung are now confident enough in their own processor technology to use them across their highest powered devices. The S5 Neo's Exynos processor is a 1.6 GHz octa-core chip that's capable of handling all the rigours of daily browsing, gaming, downloading and streaming.
The 5.1" display uses Samsung's Super AMOLED technology of excellent colour reproduction and enhanced battery life, making the S5 Neo an excellent choice for video playback. At 1080 Full HD, you can watch high definition content at any time. SAMOLED features automatic screen optimisation, intelligently adapting brightness and power output to match the onscreen colour combinations.
Both main and front facing cameras are capable of taking great quality low-light pictures with their f/1.9 apertures, so you can still capture great shots even as the sun sets. A new Wide Selfie feature is also available to get everyone in the shot, including that friend that has to photobomb every occasion!
Right next to the flash on the phone's rear you will also find a built-in heart rate sensor. With Samsung's installed wellbeing applications, you can safely track goals for all types of exercise. Check steps, distance workrate against your heart rate to make sure you don't overdo it! There's also a wide range of compatibility with Samsung's wearable range and Android Wear products from other manufacturers.
*Since September 2013, Samsung have implemented a 'region lock' on all new stock. Clove Technology only have access to models designed for the “European” region, which covers both UK and mainland Europe. The compatible countries are listed below**.
For correct operation, this handset should be activated inside one of these countries with a SIM card issued for use there. The device will then be able to accept SIM cards from outside of these countries.
Activation requires turning the device on for the first time & completing set-up with the SIM installed, then completing at least 5 minutes of voice call(s) with this SIM.
Without activation you may still use the device outside of these countries when 'roaming' - using a SIM card from the listed countries.
If this activation procedure is not followed then the device will lock when first attempted to be used with a SIM card from outside of these regions. Local Samsung support may provide a code to unlock such handsets.
**All member states of the E.E.A and the following additional territories: Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City.
IF YOUR CHOSEN DELIVERY COUNTY IS NOT LISTED, CLOVE TECHNOLOGY WILL BREAK THE SEAL ON THIS DEVICE AND ACTIVATE IT. YOU MUST AGREE TO THIS PROCEDURE IN THE CHECKOUT BEFORE THE SALE WILL COMPLETE.
