Yesterday my Samsung Galaxy S5 arrived. These are my initial impressions, and if I find time to I may write a complete review.

The unboxing was a bit disappointing. The plasticky protective films and lightweight feel of the device didn't give me a good first impression of the device, but so far in use I've grown to like the device and accept my initial purchase decision. The device comes with a mains USB charger and cable, a set of headphones with different sizes of earbud adapters.

Yesterday evening the fingerprint scanner passed the "tipsy evening out with sticky fingers" test and I prefer the flattened and simplified TouchWiz to the horrible one on the Note 3.

The device is snappy and fast. I haven't noticed any slowdowns even when running some demanding apps and multitasking. I haven't been able to use the device long enough to pass judgement on battery life.

Lets see how long I can resist voiding the warranty on the device by rooting it and flashing custom ROMs...
