Despite its high-end status, the Neo is something you can call a downgraded version of its principal smartphone. It has also been described as a “hardware revision” of the Galaxy S5 which was released in February of the previous year.
The Galaxy S5 Neo comes in a lightweight but solid frame of 145g and a dimension of 142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm. This is particularly important because the original was criticized for being too cheap with many referring to the S5 as the “band aid device”. It is also dust and water resistant with an IEC(the International Electrotechnical Commission) score of IP67 and certain tests suggest it can stay in water of a height of 1 metre for up to thirty minutes. It is a single micro SIM smartphone with other major network connection technologies like GSM, HSPA and LTE. It also supports Bluetooth 4.1, WLAN, GPS and NFC. It retains the 5.1 inch screen of the Galaxy S5 and has a resolution of 1080p x 1920p. A major observation is that this phone removes the fingerprint sensor that was present in the original S5. To be fair, S5 wasn’t particularly regarded for its reliability and accuracy. It received mainly very negative reviews and had to be revised.
Samsung improves a bit on the processor speed and efficiency; the Galaxy S5 Neo runs on the Exynos 7580 Octa(28nm) chipset deviating from its predecessor’s Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 (28 nm), the Octa-core 1.6 Ghz Cortex-A53 CPU differing from the original S5’s Quad-core 2.5 GHz Krait 400 and uses the Mali- T720MP2 GPU which again deviates from the Galaxy S5’s Adreno 330 . It also runs on the Android 5.1.1(Lollipop) which can be upgraded to 7.0(Nougat). The Galaxy S5 Neo provides a 2GB RAM and internal storage of 16GB which of course can be expanded with a memory card.
The camera is very decent too with a 16MP main camera and an improved 5MP selfie camera. The main camera has a LED flash, panorama HDR and video records at 1080p @30fps. The drawback is that it isn’t capable of recording 4k videos unlike the original.
The Battery type is the removable Li-ion 2800 mAh and goes up to 15 hours of talk time and 73 hours of music play when fully charged. The pricing is quite fair since it has been out for about four and a half years now and it currently goes for between 41,000 and 45,000 naira in the Nigerian market
In conclusion, The Galaxy S5 Neo is not anything spectacular like the other mid-range smartphones and not particularly innovative as it is just a downgraded clone of its original and just has minor additions like the selfie camera improvement and the solid build, however it also removes certain features most notably the fingerprint sensor If I am to give this a score out of ten I will be giving it a 6.5.
