The Samsung Galaxy S5 was met with a mixed reaction when it was announced at MWC just under a month ago. Despite having very little to offer on top of the Galaxy S4 there is no doubt at all that this device will sell by the bucket load.
Three have today announced their pricing structure for the upcoming device which will be available for pre-order starting March 28th and will start to ship on the 11th of April 2014.
The pricing for the device will start with a £69 upfront cost on a £38 24 month tariff which will include 600 minutes and 2GB of data or if 2GB is far from enough then you can look at paying £44 a month for all you can eat data and calls.

Other aids such as the camera’s new selective focus feature allows budding photographers to focus on a specific area of an object while simultaneously blurring out the background, providing even more control over pictures.
Sylvia Chind, head of devices at Three, said: “Whether you’re a fitness fanatic, keen photographer, or you just enjoy streaming music, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has something for everyone.
“Partnered with Three’s fast 4G network available at no extra cost, additional features such as the Galaxy S5’s download booster that uses both Wi-Fi and 4G to increase data speed, means you are no longer confined to your desktop when downloading large files. Altogether making this Samsung smartphone the most feature-rich customer experience, yet.”
The Samsung Galaxy S5 also features an innovative finger scanner, providing a secure, screen locking experience and you can even use your fingerprint to encrypt sensitive files or to buy things online via PayPal. In addition, the device also features Ultra Power Saving Mode which turns the display to black and white, and closes all unnecessary features to minimise the battery consumption when you’re out and about with no access to a charger.
