Samsung Galaxy S5 has been available in stores throughout the United States, and the world, provided by multiple carriers for over a week now. There’s been a lot of buzz about the newest smart phone on the market because it’s giving Apple a run for its money. We’ve done a lot of research about Samsung’s latest addition and found that there are some really great features present in their S5 model that you may not be aware of. Consequently, there are also some great deals to be had if you purchase the Galaxy S5 in a special bundle.

To celebrate the impending release, we want to give you a rundown of underrated features found with the S5 smart phone. You may know that the phone is equipped with special technology to check your heart rate, but what you may not know is what else the sensory receptors can measure. Check out our quick list of things you may not know about the Samsung Galaxy S5, and why we think it’s worth a test drive:

Fingerprint Scanner

  • Biometric-Powered Security: not only will your brand new Galaxy S5 be able to measure your heart rate, but it will also be able to use a fingerprint to perform several functions. The fingerprint scanner is reminiscent of the one found in the iPhone 5S and yet the Galaxy S5 claims to provide a scanner that is more safe and effective. Recently Samsung confirmed that you will be able to purchase through PayPal using the fingerprint scanner. How about that for personalized security?
Samsung S5 Experience App

Through hands-on practice, YouTube tutorials, and an in-depth explanation of internal structures, you will finish informed and in control of your new device.

  • Dust & Water Resistant: although we’re sure the fine print will specify that dropping your phone in the pool isn’t covered by the warranty, the Galaxy S5 claims to be resistant to water and dust. This means a better quality product that you can use in multiple situations. Now you can enjoy running in the heat of summer or a night-time concert with friends without the fear of humidity ruining your smart product.

To browse more specifics about the Samsung Galaxy S5, we suggest checking out their website and scanning YouTube channel reviews of Vloggers such as Tanner Marsh. In one of his recent videos, he provides an in-depth comparison between the iPhone 5S and the Galaxy S5. Personally we like to think of the Samsung Galaxy S5 as a Pandora’s Box, because surely there is more beneath that dust and water resistant glass surface than meets the eye.
