Samsung Galaxy S5 Review 2

If you're looking to pick up a sweet deal on a flagship smartphone this holiday season, check out this deal on the Galaxy S5 from Walmart. The retailer is currently selling Samsung's most popular smartphone for just $79 on a two-year contract.

That's $60 off Walmart's usual price for the Galaxy S5, and you can get the device on AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint — but you only have until Thursday, December 25 to take advantage of it. What's more, this offer is available in-store only, so you'll pay more for the handset if you buy online.

Walmart's discount comes at a great time — just as Samsung has begun rolling out the Galaxy S5's Android 5.0 Lollipop update. While users don't get to appreciate Material Design much due to Samsung's TouchWiz UI, they will enjoy its many new features — such as Smart Lock and lock screen notifications — and the welcome performance and battery life improvements.

The Galaxy S5 is one of 2014's most popular flagships, and it delivers a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1080p resolution, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, and a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera. The device also sports a dust- and water-resistant design.
