A Galaxy of possibilities

Posted by: | Posted on: April 22, 2014

(by Joel R. Frank) – Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 is now available for pre order in Guyana via Samsung’s official reseller Starr Computers. When Galaxies first came into the Guyanese market via independent sellers they were an instant hit; they wer flashy, eye catching and most of all they were new. Needless to say BlackBerry sales might have dropped a notch or two.

Not a lot has changed since then, BlackBerry tried a comeback with the Z10 and Q10 smartphones, both pretty darned good phones in their own right. But then they made BBM cross platform…. right, well now BBM is available on Android… Samsung’s preferred OS. And to top things of the brand spanking new S5 is available locally.

The phone’s features are awesome, needless to say. So I thought I’d explore the features and then tell you how much I’d drool for it.

First the specs, directly off of Samsung’s official site:
