The Galaxy S5 is finally available at all major carriers around the world, but what do you say about the possibility of becoming the owner of an unlocked Galaxy S5 version for only $597? We are talking about the prepaid carrier Ting as being the one that has listed this device for such a generous price and we can assure you from the start that you’ll be getting the same smartphone that’s available everywhere else. Moreover, this model’s obviously similar to the Sprint one as Ting runs on this network, but there are some things that you should know before jumping to the conclusion that this is what you want.
Samsung Galaxy S5 from Ting: Major Impediments
Ting is indeed offering Samsung’s Galaxy S5 for only $597 without a contract, but you must accept the fact that it only has the black model in stock right now. And you’ll also have to wait a little while until having the device in your hands as long as the orders will ship by May 5th. If you’re a Ting customer or if you simply think that all these impediments are not so important, then you can order your Galaxy S5 from here.
Ting’s Galaxy S5
Ting’s Galaxy S5 is the 16 GB version that runs on the CDMA 800/1900 band comes with the same 5.1in 1080p HD Super AMOLED screen and powerful 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor coupled with 2GB RAM that we have talked about several times before.
As you probably know, Samsung’s Galaxy S5 runs on Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat OS version with an updated version of the company’s custom user interface which is focused on fitness. And don’t forget that its 16MP camera comes with the ability to shoot 4K video, not to mention that we can also enjoy some special software features such as Ultra Power Saving Mode and S Voice, or that this smartphone has both a fingerprint sensor and a hear rate monitor.
As you have probably heard, Samsung’s Download Booster is missing from AT&T, Sprint and Verizon Galaxy S5 models, but we really hope that this error will soon be motivated.
And if you still have some doubts about the decision of buying this handset, HTC’s Campaign against Galaxy S5 and our HTC One M8 versus Galaxy S5 article might help you understand of what sort of device we are really talking about.
