Fingerprint authentification for mobile payments is an important step toward security in devices. Again, other companies are likely to follow Samsung's lead. This is a response to some serious security issues, and represents an appropriate response.

This is a good move by SAmsung. Everyone is health concerned these days. ANd if you have accessosiers to go with your smartphone, nothing like it. Its a good selling point.

The heart rate monitor will be popular with many users, but I'm even more impressed that it shoots 4K video.

Just like 4K video and 16 Mpixels truly achieves equality with good 35mm film SLRs of the past, this quad core 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon is right up there with very decent desktop PC processors. I'm impressed! Let's dock the thing and replace PCs with it! As well as film cameras.

It was predictable that eventually we'd be getting here. I think these are important milestones.

Shooting 4K video is indeed impressive feature. Sony Xpedia series is going to equip with this feature. I wonder whether Apple will follow.


Fingerprint sensor has become a necessity since iPhone 5S has it. I am impressed in how Apple put it together. How does Samsung do it?

You camera, especially if it's an SLR, still has an advantage over your phone, though: it has a decent lens. If you're after a good photograph, that's more important than megapixels.

Samsung's fingerprint technology is an important response to Apple's iPhone and it ups the ante in the space as far as sensors are considered.

Nothing exciting in S5. All the additional features such as dust and water proof, finger print, 16M pixel camera, 2GB RAM, Quadcore etc are available in one phone or other. Only additional sensor for heart rate monitor is not justified the wearable device. Most watches have that fearture. I think Samsung killed the innovation with S5.
