The main features of the Samsung Galaxy S5 from T-Mobile include a 5.1-inch AMOLED display that’s capable of reproducing visual content in full 1080p resolution, a 16-megapixel camera, and a robust design that’s resistant to water and dust. The phone also features a heart rate monitor and a fingerprint scanner.
The AMOLED screen of the Samsung Galaxy S5 is capable of dynamically adjusting the brightness and contrast based on the amount of ambient light. Its built-in camera features the selective focus functionality, allowing users to single out an element on the screen as the focal point and blur out the rest to create an illusion of depth.
By using the built-in heart rate monitor and pedometer in tandem with the S Health app, users can keep track of their fitness goals and receive nutritional information. The S Health app also tracks the distance covered during exercise and the number of calories burned, recording the data in a log users can access by tapping the graph icon.
The fingerprint scanner provides an option to unlock the phone without having to input the password. To accomplish this, a user has to slide his finger vertically over the home screen. As of 2015, this functionality also allows users to authorize payments through services such as PayPal.
