The Samsung Galaxy S5, which was announced in February 2014, is currently offered at Amazon with the low price deal set at only $99. Consumers who want to get their hands on the Android smartphone at Amazon must agree with the two-year Verizon contract as the network carrier.

According to the Android Geeks report, Amazon has in stock both of the black and white versions of the Samsung Galaxy S5. The Amazon deal is considered to be a very good one since the pricing scheme for the Samsung Galaxy S5 is $100 lower compared to the rival HTC One M8.

Consumers are now suggested to place their orders fast in order to take advantage of the low priced deal for the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 powerful features and specs include the 5.1-inch Super AMOLED HD capacitive touch screen display with 1920x1080p resolution, a 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system, 2GB of RAM, Adreno 330 GPU and 16GB internal storage capacity that can be expanded with the available microSD card slot up to 128GB.
