Smartphone guru wanted

I'm on my 3rd Samsung Galaxy S5 phone, just got another yesterday, the phones are really good, but they have a inherent camera problem which causes the phone to crash, otherwise no problems.

Anyhoo, I looked up the model number of this new one, and it is slightly different, but I'm too technically dumb to understand what effect the difference mean in real terms.

My new one is on the left, see highlighted sections

I can see that this is an improvement over my old one



But not sure if these differences are good or bad, if seriously bad, then I can return it.

And you told me that you were skint???

I'm still on my original iPhone 4s, seven years old this month, and I am will to bet that it has travelled more miles and taken more pictures than any other phone on this forum. And it still has the original battery.

I am skint, Drew, hence me buying a used phone, I am at a loss to see how your post helps though, & there is no way on this planet that I will by another apple product.

Apple phones are reliable though Kev, especially the earlier ones and cheap as chips. I stopped at a 4s as well, had it for years until I dropped it from a height onto concrete and smashed the screen. It must have been dropped a hundred times but finally gave in. The replacement was twenty quid off ebay. I bet it lasts years like the last one.
