Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo review - a new[ish] Galaxy with microSD

 

Its battery life and display are still first in class, but at this price the Galaxy S5 Neo faces stiff competition

One thing that has been kept intact is its predecessor's incredible battery life. Its battery may only have a 2,800mAh capacity, but it lasted a massive 16h 27m in our continuous video playback test with the screen brightness set to 170cd/m2, making it...

Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo review: The S5, rebooted

 

The S5 Neo is the Galaxy S5 reborn, but it's faster, has better battery life and is much cheaper

In the final analysis, it’s impossible not to be impressed with the Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo. If you can get on with the design, which isn’t the most attractive in the world, its combination of performance, battery life, camera quality and a reasonable...

Review: Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo

 

Samsung brings back 2014's Samsung Galaxy S5 but with updated specs, a better display and a return to the dust and water resistant flagship of its time.

The Galaxy S5 neo has a lot going for it. Sure, it feels a little retro now that Samsung has moved on to curved glass and aluminum bodies, but it does offer a removable battery as well as a 5.1-inch display that is a comfortable size for many users out...

Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo Smartphone Review

 

New revision. The Galaxy S5 Neo from Samsung is the new version of the former flagship smartphone Galaxy S5. Is it an inexpensive alternative to the current Galaxy S6?

sturdy chassis, dust-resistant and waterproof, great display, good camera, replaceable battery, microSD-slot, good battery runtimes, low temperatures

performance worse compared to the predecessor, SoC throttles under sustained load, limited options for videos, fingerprint scanner was waived

Positive aspects of the Galaxy S5 Neo are still the sturdy chassis, the great display, the comprehensive software equipment and the long battery runtimes. The smartphone is still waterproof, but does not need the annoying covers anymore. Samsung has...

Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo review

 

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo is a 2015 reboot of Samsung's S5 flagship smartphone from 2014. The Neo is almost identical to the original S5, but has an octa-core processor, an adaptive screen and an improved selfie camera. It's available in a choice of...

There's a definite advantage in buying an ex-flagship device instead of a brand-new mid-range model. You can see that here with the S5 Neo. The display is distinctively high-end, and the camera is one of the best on any smartphone. The 8-core processor...

Poor phone lacks usability

 

" I have had nothing but trouble with this phone since I bought it 6 weeks ago to replace my S5 which was also faulty. Phone is very very slow and drains battery quickly "

Great Phone

 

" I am extremely happy with this phone. Great pics. Good performance. Cool running. Battery life fair. Storage expansion is a great feature. It is light as compared to friends phones. Slim design is a nice feel too. And while I have never had a problem...
