The Samsung Galaxy S5 had a design bad enough for the head of design to get fired after lackluster sales figures. With that being said, the design isn’t too far away from what we have come to know from Samsung.

The main different was with the small holes added for nothing but effect — an effect on the smartphone that apparently the management did not like. Some would argue that the holes also gave it a nice grip out of the hand. As for the features, the camera gives great quality pictures, the display is great and Samsung’s bloatware needs to be banished as usual.
