The sleek and slim smartphone weighs 5.1 ounces and is 8.1 millimeters thin. The device features Android’s 4.4.2 (Kitkat) mobile operating system and runs on a 2.5 GHz quad core application processor with 2GB of internal RAM. Available in Charcoal Black and Shimmery White, the phone is powered by a removable 2,800 mAh battery and has standard 16GB of onboard storage.

Other key Galaxy S 5 features include:

  • The S Health™ platform, which allows users to access health information, track and map workouts, receive wellness coaching, select healthier eating options and track progress right on the device.
