Galaxy S5 in “Electric Blue” Arrives at Best Buy for Half-Price

Still pining for a Galaxy S5 to call your own? Well, your time has come. Best Buy is offering a brand-new “Electric Blue” version of the flagship Samsung phone for Verizon, Sprint and AT&T. Even better, you can grab the new smartphone at half-price with a two-year contract.

Besides its bright blue skin this Galaxy S5 variant is the same as earlier models. It still packs a 5.1-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 801 processor, a 2800mAh battery, 16GB of storage with microSD support, 2GB of RAM and a 16-megapixel camera. It also still runs Android 4.4 KitKat with TouchWiz on top and offers a built-in fingerprint scanner and heart-rate monitor.

Overall the Galaxy S5 is a great if imperfect smartphone, and any Samsung fans should be pleased with the device. At $99 on-contract it’s also a steal, though it may be worth waiting to see what the company has in store next month with the rumored Galaxy Note 4.
