If we polled readers to peer which flagship phone had the worst design, it’s rather imaginable that Samsung’s Galaxy S5 would rank lovely top on the listing. With its obnoxiously massive bezels and foolish flap that coated the charging port, Samsung’s water-proof Galaxy S5 didn’t rather rub us the proper means.
On the bottom, surrounding the very good digital camera Samsung included, the corporate opted for a dimpled subject matter, steadily in comparison to the texture and aesthetic of a Band-Assist. If we’re speaking about one thing being attractive, the phrase Band-Assist most likely shouldn’t arise in the dialog.
To really sum up our ideas on the design of the Galaxy S5, right here’s an excerpt from Kellen’s review posted in April of 2014.
The design of the Galaxy S5 simply seems like a step in the incorrect course for mankind. The phone is abnormally massive when in comparison to what Samsung did with final yr’s flagship phone. They squared it off, making it uncomfortable in the hand. They tossed on a slippery, dimpled external coating. They higher bezels dramatically. There's this in reality obnoxious flap that covers the charging port that may most probably damage inside of two months of use. And the faux-metal rim task is not anything however an unsightly crisis that makes the entire package deal appear and feel reasonable.
LOL. He stated “rim process.”
As the pronouncing is going, issues in most cases worsen prior to they recuperate, with the Galaxy S5 being a primary instance of that. It took this mess to get us to a metallic and glass-centric design on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7, with Samsung now developing what are some of the extra sexy smartphones thus far.
Right here’s hoping we don’t see any backward steps from Samsung in the long run.
