On the display front, it looks like Samsung has bumped up the screen another tenth of a inch, coming in at 5.1 inches as opposed to the Galaxy S4's 5 inches. It looks like Samsung stuck with the 1080p resolution this time, despite rumors leading up to the announcement that it would be bumped up even further. Some of the most exciting potential improvements this time around concern one of the biggest major flaws with virtually every smartphone, and that's battery life.
The Galaxy S5 features something they call Ultra Power Saving Mode, which can be activated to enable extreme battery savings. It turns off every app on your phone except for SMS and calls and makes your screen black and white. The result? With just 10% battery life remaining, Samsung claims you'll be able to go an additional 24 hours on standby. If this actually pans out in real-world scenarios, color us impressed. This would be a pretty major feat, and being able to rely on your phone without a charge in emergency scenarios is much appreciated. Next up, we're looking at security and fitness features.
