The Samsung Galaxy S5 is available black, white, blue and gold. There’s a fingerprint reader for locking and unlocking the device. Also new is a heart rate sensor – fantastic for health buffs.

The 16MP sensor ensures you can capture crisp images, even in low light and the

redesigned camera app makes things really simple. Autofocus is quick and the live HDR

preview lets you see what effects will be applied to your picture before you shoot it.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 also shoots in 4K at 30 frames a second.
