As you can see, Samsung included a vast selection of apps and services in its Galaxy Gifts bundle. Some of them could be pretty useful, while others may not be completely indispensable. The fact is, however, that the package is worth almost as much as the phone itself which may prove to be a great marketing move to get more customers to choose the Galaxy S5 over other smartphones.
