Rated: 3 1/2  out of 5

Synopsis:
Tells you about your newly bought Samsung Galaxy S5 smart phone.



Evaluation:
This is a pretty basic, beginning primer on a Samsung Galaxy S5 smart phone. I suspect it was an adaption from earlier versions of the Samsung Galaxy series. For someone who has not had a Samsung Galaxy before, or even a smart phone-like me, it was well worth the read. If you are looking for some deep secrets of the phone, I hope there are better books. It is written in the Dummies style, not exceptionally well done, but enjoyable, easy to read-I do miss the Rich Tennant cartoons though.

 

Good Quotes:
  • First Line: The Samsung Galaxy S5 is a powerful smartphone, perhaps the most powerful phone ever sold.
  • Last Line: Instead, you can place your order on your smartphone and wit with eager anticipation to find out what toys are in your kids' meal.
