Samsung Galaxy S5 16GB No-Contract Smartphone for Verizon (SMG900VZKV) is rated out of 5 by 1,487.
Rated 5 out of 5 by S5fanman from The best I waited until the S6 was released before switching from my iPhone 5s, but when I learned that the S6 had no swappable battery, no sd card slot, no water resistance, and a glass back, I decided that the practicality of the S5 was the way to go. I am glad I did! It is a great looking phone that has great features. It is unfortunate that the majority favor bright and shiny over functionality, and as for now my opinion is this is the best phone Samsung has made (but it is also the only one I have owned...so there is that...). Also, for what it's worth, anyone I have talked to that owns the S6 loves it. The S5 was just definitely the phone for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ebbhavok from Samsung galaxy s5 verizon Overall this is a good phone. The electronics on this phone are up to date with the competition. The colors on the phone pop. It's very fast and can handle a lot of tasks at once without slowing down. But it has almost 6 gigs off software. 95% of which will never be used nor can you remove them. It's made out of the cheapest plastics possible and since it is water proof it has a flap in the way of the charger plug in so covering up that horrible plastic with a case is a joy when you forget you can't cut your nails if you want to charge your phone. So modding it is a must if you want space and take your time getting a case that works for your needs

Rated 3 out of 5 by Androidguy123 from Its a good phone I have had this phone for 2 years. 1 st year was great. After that i noticed a decline in preformance and occasional lag. The phone was still very usable,but very annoying. I would try to open snapchat, but then the phone would freeze and screen would go black, i had to hit the home button, and restart the phone. Another time the phone said i had 24% battery life, then it shut off, with no power in it, couldnt repower device. I recharged it and never had that issue again. Samsung in general needs to have better ram managment and a lower price tag and their products are golden. My first year with the phone was my best samsung experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by adamscreek from Exceptional Cell Phone As soon as I received my phone, I put in the battery and took a quick tour. Very easy to navigate, pretty much common sense. I charged up the battery rather quickly and registered for phone service. It is very fast, downloads quickly. Takes beautiful pictures and videos with incredible sound. It responds very well to touch compared to my old phone. Light weight phone but well made. Liked the water proof feature as my last phone was water damaged. I plan to keep this phone for many years as I feel it will provide excellent service. The battery is replaceable and I added expanded memory. These are features that you can not find any more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pixiestix from My first time experience owning a smart phone! Don't have any other smart phones to compare this phone to. I absolutely love all the features on this phone. The size of the phone is perfect, not to small, not to large. I am continuously learning new things on a daily basis on this phone. The technology blows my mind. The picture quality is outstanding. The speaker sound is awesome. The only real complaint I have is difficulty plugging my phone to the charger. The charger is very hard to insert into my phone. It takes me several attempts to do this. This is a five star phone and surpasses my expectations of what a smart phone has to offer. You should buy one! You won't be sorry!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Qball668 from Was happier with my S4 If it wasn't for gravity, I'd still be a happy Samsung customer... with my trusty S4. As fate would have it, the asphalt wanted to taste the screen. Now I'm stuck with this wonky beast. Realistically, it's seems merely a bloated version of the S4... but under the hood, it's riddled with goblins. Random freezups, apps crashing, a camera that can't take a decent picture... and it heats up to a degree that I fear for a Chernobyl-grade core meltdown in my pocket. Maybe the 6 is better.. but right now... I'm wary... my iPhone friends keep tempting me to the dark-side... i loved my S4... but, unfortunately, this "brick" may be the lynch-pin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mistwire from Camera is substandard bordering on abysmal. I've had Samsung Galaxy phones since they first came out. Why oh why can't Samsung make a phone with a camera as good as the competition? Everything else about these phones are great: 1. Interface is intuitive 2. Apps are great 3. Having an SD card for more storage is great But the camera is (and has always been) *terrible*. Me and my wife will both take out our phones and take the SAME shot in the SAME light and hers will always come out crisper, sharper and in better detail! Perhaps it's my phone in particular? Nope! I had the S3, S4 AND S5 replaced at least twice each time and *ALL* of the cameras are substandard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eniece from Love this phone I upgraded from a Droid RAZR Maxx so there were big shoes to fill. I'm happy with my selection. Performance received a score of 4 only because the battery life seems shorter than expected. It may be that I've spent a lot of time setting up and downloading apps. The camera is awesome. ..far better than any other I've used on a cell phone. All standard smartphone features are available, plus many extras. Love the flip screens. It's also nice to have the numbers available on the keyboard without having to shift 1st. All around great phone. I own many Samsung products and this phone is another of their fine products. Thank you Samsung!
