I’ve had the privilege for a quick hands-on session and as a consumer, here are the 3 main things I like about Samsung Galaxy S5.
  1. Selective focus
    The new feature I look forward most is selective focus function on its camera! Just look at this photo I took; I can select where I want it to focus on after capturing the photo.

  2. Heart rate monitor
    I’m not really a fitness junkie but a heart rate monitor will surely come in handy in times of need. Or perhaps, I can use it to measure true love? Haha! With pedometer, diet and exercise records on my phone, it’ll certainly motivate me more to exercise and eat right because I want to fully utilize the functions!

  3. Perforated pattern on back cover
    The Galaxy S5 features a perforated pattern on back cover, creating a modern glam look. Its new sleek, contoured shape comes in an array of vivid colors including Charcoal Black, Shimmery White, Electric Blue and Copper Gold. Availability of Electric Blue and Copper Gold in Malaysia will be announced in due time.
