As we all know, prior to lớn the release of Samsung’s every upcoming flagship device, the rumours start popping up like crazy. This year it wasn’t any different, this year the rumours were pointing towards 3GB RAM and a QHD Super AMOLED display. However, as we all saw at the Galaxy S5’s launch event, these rumours didn’t quite become a reality, or did they? Same rumours kept popping up even after the release of the Galaxy S5, namely in the khung of the Galaxy S5 Prime”. Two months later, Samsung announced the Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A, a Korea exclusive device, with the same rumoured specifications. The standard Galaxy S5 is an excellent smartphone, it even has “the best performing smartphone display”, according khổng lồ DisplayMate. Does performance, resolution và price bump make the Galaxy S5 LTE-A any better than the standard Galaxy S5? Well, let’s find out, và see if the difference is significant enough to make you swap out your standard Galaxy S5 for the LTE-A one.


The Galaxy S5 LTE-A features exactly the same thiết kế as the standard S5, except for the silver chrome bezel surrounding the phone, the camera and the home button/fingerprint scanner. This time Samsung opted for a “Rose Gold” colour for the chrome bezel, instead of the usual silver. Another difference is the LTE-A branding on the back cover of the device. These are basically the only two differences between the two devices, visually.

However, in the specifications department, it’s a completely different story. Spec-wise, there are 4 main differences, which include: the SoC, RAM, display resolution & Cat6 modem. Samsung has equipped the Galaxy S5 LTE-A with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC; which features a Quad-core Krait 450 CPU clocked at 2.5GHz và an Adreno 420 GPU with a clock speed of 600MHz, the new SoC is also easily able to lớn efficiently handle the increased display resolution. We will talk about the display a bit later in the article.

Compared to standard Galaxy S5’s Snapdragon 801 SoC, this is a very significant performance change, as S801 is just an overclocked S800, while Snapdragon 805 is a brand new chip, and the Galaxy S5 LTE-A is the world’s first smartphone to feature the new silicon. In the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, Samsung upgraded the RAM lớn 3GB, which we think was utmost necessary as the last few iterations of Samsung’s TouchWiz UX have been a complete resource hog, occupying most of the memory. With the standard Galaxy S5 and its 2GB of RAM, we noticed that after opening a few applications, the applications started to lớn close themselves in the background lớn make space for other applications, which isn’t a good thing. This resulted in increased phầm mềm loading times & certain elements of the UI lagged a bit.

However, these issues were not to lớn be found on the LTE-A variant of the device, thanks khổng lồ the increased amount of RAM. Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A features impressive tải về speeds of up to 225 Mbps, & is the world’s first điện thoại cảm ứng to achieve these kind of tải về speeds.

Powering all this technology is a 2800mAh lithium-ion battery, same as the standard Galaxy S5. Now, even though the Galaxy S5 LTE-A packs a QHD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display, the battery life is shockingly similar to lớn the (1920×1080) FHD Super AMOLED variant, thanks to lớn Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 SoC.

Below the Antuntu benchmark scores from both phones:


Now let’s talk about the world’s most gorgeous display we ever laid our eyes on. The Galaxy S5 LTE-A is the world’s first điện thoại thông minh to pack a QHD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display with a whopping pixel density of 577PPI (Pixel Per Inch), the highest in the điện thoại industry at the moment. You would probably say that doesn’t the LG G3 pack a QHD display, as well? Well, you’re right. But, the G3 has a bigger screen (5.5-inch) than the S5 LTE-A (5.1-inch), resulting in a lower px density (534PPI), & the G3 uses a True HD-IPS display giải pháp công nghệ which is no where near Samsung’s AMOLED display technology.

Comparing Galaxy S5 LTE-A’s QHD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display with the standard Galaxy S5’s FHD (1920×1080) Super AMOLED displays, there are only a few differences between the two. Firstly, the whites on the standard Galaxy S5’s display are a bit warm and not so accurate, they look a bit yellowish when compared with LTE-A’s QHD Super AMOLED display. And, of course, the Galaxy S5 LTE-A’s display is way more sharper than the standard Galaxy S5’s, but that isn’t noticeable until you see them side by side, as both devices have px density of more than 300PPI.

Other differences

As the Galaxy S5 LTE-A is a Korean exclusive device, it comes with two Samsung 2800mAh batteries, a battery charger and a lot of Korean bloatware. There are a few new software features, as well. In đoạn clip mode, there is now an option to shoot clip in WQHD (2560×1440) resolution. There is a new lock screen & notification feature called Festival effect. By enabling Festival Effect, gorgeous drawings are made và colourful balloons appear on the lock screen or in the notification panel on particular days, like public holidays or your birthday.

Wrap Up

The Galaxy S5 LTE-A is exactly what the Galaxy S5 should have been when it was launched, but we know that Samsung couldn’t mass produce the QHD Super AMOLED display at that time. Now if you own the standard Galaxy S5, you really don’t need to lớn swap it out for the LTE-A variant, because the only major difference is the Quad HD Super AMOLED display & currently there is not much nội dung available for this massive resolution. However, if you simply can’t wait and really badly want the stunning QHD Super AMOLED display equipped Galaxy S5 LTE-A in the palm of your hands, visit to lớn get yours now!
