The first Moto X, which debuted last year to muted consumer enthusiasm, didn’t get caught up in the smartphone hustle. And that’s what made it so great. While other Android competitors ran rampant with features and specs, Motorola used its brain to create a new breed of smartphone; it made a phone for everyone, something intelligent and thoughtful.

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5 during the 2014 Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona earlier this year, and just a few months later it’s available all around the globe, and from major carriers in the United States for $199 with a new two-year contract.

The device offers brand new hardware components, including a faster processor, and is also equipped with unique parts like a heart rate sensor. Last year’s Galaxy S4 was extremely popular, and Samsung sold millions of units within months of its release.

Is the Galaxy S5 the best smartphone you can pick up right now? Is its camera going to rock your world? Can you really dunk it in the sink? Is the heart rate monitor all it’s cracked up to be?
