Introducing Samsung Galaxy S5 – Video
Last Sunday, during the commercial break for 86th annual Academy Awards we could see the first ad spots of the Galaxy S5. Such ads are typically too short to deliver any meaningful message and Samsung bears in mind that. That’s why the company released a much longer video on its YouTube channel where the Galaxy S5’s most important features are highlighted. The video lasts almost 4 minutes and covers all the essentials from color options, through fitness and camera features, down to the fingerprint scanner.
The promo video focuses primarily on photographic experience. The Galaxy S5 packs a 16-megapixel rear camera with a multitude of features such as super fast auto focus, blur option and real time preview of photos. You will be able to share your photos faster than ever thanks to double Wi-Fi connection and combining Wi-Fi with LTE connections to maximize data speed and decrease upload time.
Samsung equipped the Galaxy S5 with tons of health-related apps and features. For, instance the S Health app helps you set goals and keep track of your achievements. In addition, the phone sports a heart rate sensor which helps you keep better control over your health condition.
As, the iPhone 5S launched last year, the Galaxy S5 also packs a fingerprint scanner which helps to protect it from unauthorized use. By swiping your finger over home button you can not only unlock the phone but also secure mobile payments.
In terms of durability, the handset is rated IP67 which means that neither dust nor immersion in water will pose any danger to the phone. Finally, the device comes with power saving mode which considerably extends battery life by turning screen to black and white.
Other specs and features of the Samsung Galaxy S5 worth to mention include a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display, 2,800 mAh battery, quad-core 2.5 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, LTE Cat. 4, Android 4.4 KitKat and slim bezels.
