New Vision: Samsung launches Galaxy S5 smartphone
Galaxy S series are luxury devices. It is often compared to the iPhone. However, Galaxy S4, a previous model could not attract consumers so much. Although the sales reached 40 million, Samsung seemed not to be satisfied.

Instead, Galaxy S5 epuips some newly gimmicks in it. You can use a fingerprint scanner attached to the start button to unlock the screen. It looks like merely a copy of Apple. However, Paypal is also available through the sensor in Galaxy S5. Paypal is a major instrument of money transaction utilized in many retailers. It helps you to enjoy internet shopping with ease and security.
In addition, a pulse rate sensor is stuck at the back of Galaxy S5. To be honest, I am doubtful about the usability of it. You have to put your finger on the phone for a few second to evaluate the pulse rate. This motion is so strange that you can hardly use it during running or other physical activity. I recommend you to choose a wearable device for this purpose.
The new Galaxy has changed its shape. The cover has a feeling like leather, according to the media. It seems gorgeous, though some people will dislike it. It is also impressive that Galaxy S5 has gained waterproof.
Now I am wondering if I will buy Galaxy S5. Perhaps I will not move to it, since my current Galaxy SIII is still working very well.
