Samsung is leading the mobile market post the launch of its Galaxy series. Samsung S5 was announced at the Mobile World Congress Wireless show in Barcelona, Spain last month. Samsung S5 has a 5.1-inch screen and a 16 megapixel camera. Like Apple 5S, Samsung S5 will also have a fingerprint sensor for Passcode unlock and PayPal payments. Another cool feature is the heart-rate sensor for fitness applications and activities.
Sprint and Verizon will also come up with an offer soon, though details of the offer are yet to be announced by the operators.
