SAMSUNG UNVEILS NEW WATERPROOF GALAXY S5 – With a considerable amount of marketing fanfare Samsung has announced its latest smartphone… the new waterproof Galaxy S5.
With its new slick design, super-fast Wi-Fi, a superior 16 mega pixel camera and a matching smartwatch and fitness band that enables you to monitor your heart there is no doubt many Samsung fans that will be chomping at the bit to get their hands on Samsung’s latest offering.
The camera runs Android KitKat 4.4 (I thought that was a chocolate coated wafer bar up until 10 minutes ago) with an impressive 5.25 inch screen.
The new waterproof Galaxy S5 has already been dubbed the ‘superphone’ for Samsung have taken all of its competitor’s features and stuffed them all into one device.
Like Samsung’s arch rival the iPhone S5, it too has fingerprint sensor technology and is dustproof as well as being waterproof.

It certainly appears from this technological dinosaur’s opinion that the new Galaxy S5 has everything you could possibly desire in a smartphone.
I say technological dinosaur because I’ve got a PC that’s six years old which broke down last week and a laptop that I’m now writing articles on that is now five years old… yes I’m not exactly your tech savvy guru and as I still own the iPhone 3, it’s obvious I’m no expert.
For all you tech savvy lovers, see the video above; this is the official announcement from Samsung in Barcelona and fully details everything that is on offer.
From all that has been said about the new waterproof Galaxy S5 I would be very tempted if I was in the market for a new phone.
I have to admit, I’m always in awe of new technology but I’m also a little frightened of it and I wonder how many other features makers such as Samsung and Apple will be able to fit into a compact handheld device… I still remember the first mobile phones that weighted a ton and were little more than house bricks; it is amazing to think just how far we’ve pushed the technological boundaries in just a few short years.
