Do you want to sell or trade your Galaxy S5 Neo?
Yes? Well… you’re at the right place.
But first, I need you to determine if you want to trade your phone for a better version, or if you want to sell it for cash?
After you decide, we’ll walk you through the steps to cash in.
In the meantime, let’s review your phone.
The Galaxy S5 Neo is a discontinued budget phone. Although it’s discontinued, the S5 Neo still offers great battery life, camera, and display. However, due to the software and UI, the S5 Neo feels just a tad sluggish. By all means, the Galaxy S5 is the better performing phone, which is odd considering the S5 Neo is the S5’s successor.
Surprisingly, the Galaxy S5 had a better chipset, running a Snapdragon processor. But then Samsung decided to go away from Snapdragon to their own Exynos chipset. This is one of the few changes that was made to the S5 to give birth to the S5 Neo.
Other changes would include camera, plastic back (instead of fake leather), and a conventional home button.
Before, the Galaxy S5 home button came with a fingerprint sensor. While it may seem like a loss—trust me—you’re better off without it. The fingerprint sensor always gave problems. It often took two or three tries just to get the darn thing to work. So good riddens.
Along with the conventional home button, you’ll also find a volume rocker on the left, power button on the right, a micro-USB 2.0 charging port on the bottom, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the top. There’s also a microphone on the top and bottom of the chassis.
To access the battery, SIM card, and the SD-card, you’ll have to remove the plastic back panel. The 16GB internal storage can be expanded up to 128GB with the addition of a microSD-card. And you only get a measly 2GB of RAM.
Back in 2015, the Galaxy S5 Neo was released with the Android 5.1.1 operating system. It’s a little jerky when scrolling fast using the web browser. And apps have a slight delay when tapped, especially the more complex ones. Your device becomes more responsive when you download Android 7.0, the latest available OS for S5 Neo.
High performance gaming is okay. It’s a little sluggish but nothing unbearable. However, low performance games had no problems at all.
Sansung’s TouchWiz user interface is very intuitive and easy to use. You have Smart Manager, which enables quick access to power settings and device security. Swipe gestures are also available. To launch “Briefing'', swipe from the left and you’ll prompt a news feed based on Flipboard.
You’ll also find popular apps such as Google apps, S Planner, S Health, S control, and Galaxy Apps.
The Galaxy S5 Nano is sporting a 5.1-inch display that uses a Super-Amoled screen. It has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a pixel density of 432 PPI. The contrast is high, the content is vivid, and the colors are rich. If the colors are too rich for your taste, the device supports many color modes that you can select. Or you can enable Automatic mode that automatically adjusts the display to the content.
You get two cameras: a 5 MP selfie camera and a 16 MP main camera.
The 5 MP selfie camera takes 4:3 images up to 2576x1032 pixels. It’s nothing special but it’s adequate for selfies as long as you have good lighting. In low light conditions, the camera has some noise. And it doesn’t have a flash. But you can record video up to 1920x1080 pixels and take group selfies.
Contrary to the selfie camera, the Galaxy S5 Nano 16 MP rear camera is both great for indoors and outdoors. The colors are rich and life-like. It has minimum noise in low light thanks to its wider f/1.9 aperture. And its contrast is great at picking out the highs and lows. Plus, you can shoot video in Full HD (1920x1080 pixels at 29 fps).
When it comes to Picture Modes, there’s no slow motion or timelapse on the standard app. But you do get automatic, panorama, continuous shooting, HDR, and pro mode.
Now that we got everything you need to know out of the way, let’s discuss your selling options.
There’s two available deals for your Galaxy S5 Neo. You can choose to:
Sell Galaxy S5 Neo for cash or
Trade in Galaxy S5 Neo
If you want cash return, this option is for you.
Preparing to sell your Galaxy S5 Neo is pretty easy. Just follow these steps:
● Transfer all your files to another device or an external storage device
● Make sure you remove all passwords and give access
● Restore your phone to factory settings
Done! That’s it.
Now you can sell your phone.
If you don’t want cash, you can trade in Galaxy S5 Neo instead.
Just follow the same steps listed above.
When you finish completing the steps, trading your phone will be a cinch.
That pretty much wraps everything up.
Now it’s all up to you.
Will you sell your Galaxy S5 Neo for cash, or maybe you’ll like to trade it in for something else of your choosing?
Either way, make sure you get the best deals and services by using sites like Gimogo as a medium for trade.
