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.
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.

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!
