Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo review: A new Neo on the way?

 

The Galaxy S5 Neo was top of its class, but has since faded into obscurity, with the J5 and A5 following suit

It's worth reinforcing that the Neo isn't an upgrade of the S5 itself, however if you have an S4 or S5 and it's now the worse for wear, then the S5 Neo is a reasonably-priced, like-for-like replacement for its namesake.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo Review

 

Samsung has brought us a reworked version of the Galaxy S5, but this time it has the benefits of removable battery and expandable storage.

+ Pre installed apps with Touchwiz ; + Longer lasting battery ; + Priced to sell

- Performance not quite as good Galaxy S5 ; - Plastic chassis ; - Not ultra cool looking

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo doesn’t look as smart as the S6, and not everyone will appreciate its plastic chassis. However, thanks to its fantastic battery life, improved camera performance –­ and its removable battery and expandable storage – there’s a...

Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo review: The best deals on the S5 Neo are here

 

The S5 Neo is a lot like the older S5 , but it's faster, cheaper – and has better battery life

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...

Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo

 

Really easy to use, much faster than the Galaxy S3 I had before. I also like that it is water resistant, but you can still take the back off to replace the battery - unlike the Sony waterproof phones which you have to return to the manufacturer.

Nothing; physically it is quite big (though quite thin!) but this means the screen is really clear. I'd recommend a glass screen protector and a case.
