Want to go hands-on with the Galaxy S5 this weekend? Here’s your chance


HTC’s all new One launch event is still… (*checks HTC’s countdown page*) the better part of four days away, and though Galaxy S5 pre-orders have opened (or are just about to) with some of the big US carriers, we’re still three weeks away from seeing those order get fulfilled. If you’re seriously jonesing for some next-level smartphone action, and are sick and tired of waiting, we’ve got just the fix for you, as we learn about an opportunity to try out Samsung’s latest hardware for yourself, beginning today.

At 100 Best Buy stores spread across the US, the Galaxy S5, Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit aren’t just available to pre-order, but the hardware itself is on-hand for potential buyers to give a quick spin for themselves. Not sure about the new textured back on the GS5? Never worn a smartwatch before and are curious how these new Gear models might look? Just swing by a participating Best Buy and you can check it all out in person.

Since Best Buy has 1055 full-on stores in the US, not to mention another 406 Best Buy Mobile stand-alone locations, it might be a smart idea to call ahead and verify that your local store is among the 100 with this unreleased Samsung hardware. If you can’t find one within range, you can always keep yourself busy with some of our hands-on videos, or wait for our full review, coming soon.
