A Galaxy and three constellations

Improvements in battery life are features to check out in Samsung's S5 and its Gear wearables

Samsung's new stars: The Galaxy S5 LTE, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit (above). The S5 is a very polished phone that excels where it counts.

THE specification is dead. That is, except in the world of Android phones, where megapixels and megahertz remain core marketing ammunition. Samsung is as guilty as any manufacturer of perpetuating the spec war, having been the first to introduce an eight-core phone with the Galaxy S4 last year.
