samsung galaxy s5 activeSamsung really wants you to buy a Galaxy S5. In order to make their new smartphone tempting for consumers like myself who put out a few hundred bucks to buy a Galaxy S4 a year ago, they're throwing in some freebies to sweeten the deal.

The Galaxy Note 4 will continue to support micro-SD, which will bring the storage capacity of the largest version of the phone up to an extremely competitive 128 GB. Aside from this, Samsung is likely to stick with 16, 32 and 64 GB versions of the phablet. In terms of RAM, reports indicate that the Galaxy Note 4 will be armed with an extremely impressive 4 GB worth. There is certainly little room for complaint with regards to specs in this department.

The Galaxy S5 represents a shift for Samsung away from throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks to placing bets on fewer innovations. That strategy largely pays off with this handset. While the fingerprint reader could be more consistent, the S5 is a more refined product than the S4. We love the bright and colorful display, longer battery life and sharper camera with real-time HDR. And even though a heart rate monitor feels gimmicky on a phone, the S Health app itself has value-especially when you pair it with a Gear Fit or Gear 2 smartwatch

The S5 has an eye-popping 5.1-inch Super Amoled 1080p display that can adapt to its lighting environment. It's thin but a bit longer than the S4. At 5.1-ounces (vs. 4.6 ounces) it adds some heft, but not to the point where I was bothered. Samsung chose a design with a dimpled plastic back. It doesn't come close to measuring up to the premium feel of the HTC One (M8) that was recently introduced and that is crafted from an all-metal uni-body design. It was much the same design story with last year's models. But the S5 is comfortable to hold.

One of the biggest stories of the Galaxy S5 is the new 16 MP, 1/2.6” optical format primary camera module Going back to the Galaxy S II we found back-illuminated Samsung and Sony 8 MP, 1/3.2” optical format CMOS image sensor chips in S II phones from different regions. All the Galaxy S III phones we analyzed used 8 MP Sony camera chips, suggesting the Sony team captured all the business for the third iteration of Samsung's marquee smartphone. This apparent trend continued on to the Galaxy S4 and Note 3, which used the popular 13 MP Sony IMX135 featuring Sony's stacked chip (Exmor-RS) technology.
