- S5 unpack event,revisited
Posted by : Daniel Tuesday, February 25, 2014
Samsung unpack event was just over! Just in case someone missed the live event, here is a timeline of the event.Note that this review will be different from others as I will be discussing what happened exactly during the event.
“Our consumers don’t want the most high-tech … they want beautiful design and performance.”
1. Better design
2. Better Camera
3. Better connectivity
4. Designing for the health conscious
5. Designing to suit the lifestyle of user
The S5 comes with a fast connectivity modem.
A LTE Cat 4,which is more commonly known as LTE Advanced.It can achieve up to 150Mbps in theory.
WiFi MIMO. This is an old technology actually. This technology allows the device to achiveve higher performance by more aggressively transmitting and receiving data over Wi-Fi channels.
The download booster will allow you to split a download over WiFi and LTE when both are available to speed up the arrival of whatever you’re seeking on the phone.
With a new and improved camera, the S5 has the fastest 16-megapixel smartphone camera which focuses in 0.3 seconds and
the video camera shoots at 4K.
The S5 will water and dust resistance with IP67 certification.Water resistance means that the charging socket has a flap to keep it dry.
With a new Touchwiz, comes with more features. One of this is "Ultra Power Saving Mode".This option will turn off colors, and switches to a black and white mode, while at the same time flipping the switch on most connectivity options. With such a draconian measure, the 2800mAh battery will last longer(duh). J K Shim claims that "If my Galaxy S5 is down to only 10% battery, it can still last up to 24 hours in standby."
The colours of the back plate will be(from left to right) charcoal black,electric blue,copper gold and shimmery white.
The pair of wearables comes as a surprise as Samsung had just announced a pair of smartwatches running Tizen a day before the event.
Changing the strap is easy as popping out of it's holder. The strap can now be changeable to suit your attire and occasion.
That's all. What do you think about the S5? Will you be buying it? Let us know in the comment below!
