Hard to believe Samsung pay components same price as ayy other company; I assume a foundry arm (pun not intended at first) does help for negociation.

How can a teardown analyst ponder that ?

More and more companies are coming up with mid-range smartphones and these smartphones are also popular and fits the pocket. Also IMO, for an average user there is not much difference for functionality between the top end smartphone and a cheaper version.

The S5 comes with a heart rate monitor app that fits into a framework of several fitness monitoring apps for monitoring steps, food intake, etc. That framework appears to be built to add apps later as well. It looks interesting, but only time will tell if it builds up or falls by the wayside.

The pulse sensor is a clever feature that is going to be popular with many consumers. Are there already heart rate monitor apps that use this. If not, there will be soon.

I picked up one of these over the weekend. I am still adapting to it, but so far I have ignored the fingerprint scanner. I figured that it would not be secure, and recent stories seem to verify that. On the other hand, I have taken my pulse several times and am getting interested in tracking overall activity with it as well.

Like many of you, I was saddened to hear the news of Leonard Nimoy's death. His Star Trek character Mr. Spock was an inspiration to many of us who entered technical fields.
