The one catch with Android is that it sometimes takes a long time for new builds to trickle down to handsets that Google isn't in direct control of. That's been the case with Samsung's Galaxy handsets as well, though surprisingly, Android 5.0 Lollipop is already being unwrapped on the Galaxy S5. We say "surprisingly" because this is the first time Samsung has pushed out a major new update this soon since being released.
Despite all the recent buzz, the fact remains that the immediate commercial prospects of virtual reality head mounted displays (HMDs) aren't nearly as bright as many like to imagine and it could be quite a while before such devices become mainstream — something even Oculus Rift creator Palmer Luckey admitted a while back. Even that isn’t enough to deter new companies from entering this incipient market, though. The latest entrant is widely renowned German optics company Zeiss.
The Galaxy S5's display impresses a well renowned testing firm
It looks like Samsung may have yet other bragging point -- best smartphone display in the world. That was the determination DisplayMate's Dr. Raymond M. Soneira came to after an extensive round of lab tests and measurements, in which he concluded that the Galaxy S5 sports the best smartphone display he's ever tested. It was an easy conclusion to come to after the Galaxy S5 left in its wake a bunch of broken records.
As expected, Samsung introduced its Galaxy S5 smartphone at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, a handset that represents an attempt at returning "back to basics" with a focus on capabilities that consumers want most, the South Korean phone maker said. It starts with a big size display -- a 5.1-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) Super AMOLED powered by a peppy 2.5GHz quad-core processor.
