Samsung Galaxy S5: Five Things That Are All New

The Galaxy S 5 is complete with a 5.1-inch 1080p Super AMOLED screen, 2GB of RAM powered by 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with Adreno 330 GPU, 16 or 32 GB internal storage options, MicroSD slot upto 128GB, 16 MP rear camera, 2.1 MP front camera, Android 4.4.2 KitKat, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0, LTE Cat.4, NFC and a 2,800 mAh removable battery.

The brand new Samsung galaxy S5 has lots of new features, and I want to show you five things that are all new!

1. A Larger Display

For starters, it’s a larger display i.e. 5.1 inches; old galaxy S4 had only 5 inches. Pretty normal for 6 feet taller.

2. Fingerprint Sensor

Also, it has a fingerprint sensor at the bottom just at the home button same as we see on some new devices as well.

3. Heart Rate Monitor

On the back of the S5, it has a heart rate sensor. It’s below to the camera. Place your finger there at it'll tell you if you're about to have a cardiac episode or not.

4. Water Resistant

Yes! It’s also water resistant up to 3o minutes, in one meter of water. Throw it in water and this phone actually will be just fine depending on the height you throw it from.

5. A better camera with a lot better Plastic Back 

The back plastic is quite better, crushing the criticism that galaxy S4 had with its users complaining it to be more plasticky. This won’t be the issue on this one.

The Brand New Galaxy S5

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is the fifth addition to the Galaxy S Series. There were a lot of unanswered questions from Galaxy S4 if you remember was called "The Voyage Home".

The Brand New Galaxy S5:

So, there are a few things about it that really stands out right away. It has a larger screen i.e. 5.1 inches which is in fact quite big. It has a fingerprint sensor on the home screen similar like fingerprints that appeared on the other products just like Brand X. Also, the galaxy S5 is now water proof up to one meter for up to 20 mins that means you can pretty much carry it to anywhere. It’s obviously a big deal, if you drop it in a puddle or anything depending on your carelessness. 

And also the usual improvements that I’d expect:
 - Better Camera
 - Better connectivity
 - Higher Speed


It also has a heart rate sensor that you can touch it, it’s on the back side of the phone, next to the camera and it'll tell you your rate, pretty handy for a heart diseased. And it also has a better material, people used to complain a little about the S4 being a bit plasticky, S5 has plastic too; but a better one. It’s a better thinner phone, not necessarily a lighter phone but that’s cause they're packing into it with a lot better chips and better radios like that.

Google Glass 2

It is coming even if you’re prepared or not. The cyborg future, as I call it. Not the kind of what is depicted in the star trek or in your favorite sci-fi author’s books, however one that produces a far better future for human life. Slowly, features like Google glass is expected to get merged within our biology classes in upcoming years. We’ve already began to see the mind-controlled and currently ‘touch-feeling’ prosthetic limbs emerge and it’s only getting bigger and better.

Google Glass two 300x224 the long run of Google Glass and What it means?

Google Glass two

Google Class

You may consider Google Glass as a novelty contrivance, and perhaps it's right away, however it'll evolve. Version two of the Glass has recently been previewed and it’s an enormous set up not solely in specifications, however in aesthetics. The search engine giant has additionally recently mentioned that they're presently testing a contact lens that detects glucose level of the user.

That may not be the most important news for the typical person, however if you merely extrapolate the speed of evolution, we’re not far off from advanced contact version of Glass. The device may hypothetically manufacture better than 20/20 vision, track our health and in fact replace our smart-phone as Glass makes an attempt to now. Now imagine an equivalent sort of progression altogether different gadgets. We are going to be able to extend our lives deeply. Consider what implications a 24/7 full body health monitor would have. And don’t forget our computing evolution because of quantum computing. A.I. won't solely be driving United States around as we’re getting down seeing with Google Cars – it’s expected to resolve several of the world’s most confusing issues.

Of course, this is often all projections, hypothesis’, created by professionals rather more intelligent than I. clearly I supply to a utopian future, and maybe that's simply mere optimism, however if you follow any school or science blogs, you recognize that there's impossible, astounding technologies rising daily. After all, what’s the counter to our long running verified progression of technology?

Well, there's some. If you listen to negative or “realist” economic expert and or analysts, they’ll tell you that our finite sources our dwindling, that our economy is entering a collapse, which our earth is beyond repair. I might wish to think they’re merely crazy, however there's some data to back-up their depressing claims. The manner I see it's it’s a race of tech versus human error and If I were a betting man, I’d bet on tech being our savior as we have a tendency to come on the brink of alleged destruction.

Things you didn't knew your android could do.

Smartphones are AWESOME, period, they are basically a computer in your pocket. A pocket packed full of features to make your life comfortable. But some of those features are less obvious than others.

So, for some newbies out there, here are some stuffs you never knew your android could do. 

You can personalize the launcher on your Android

Almost every Smartphone maker has an Android OS as its interface because its extensive compatibility and simplicity, after some extent it gets a bit boring watching that whole look again and again..Thankfully,here's a solution : Launcher or Interface which allows you to change and personalize the way your android looks. Look for android launchers in Google Play and it'll return numerous results. Some are better than others. Nova Launcher is one of the best. It looks similar to the stock Android, but gives you a number of awesome tools to further customize it.

The app is free, but you have to buy the 'Prime' version if you want to add more features, such as customizable gesture controls.

Control other devices through your infrared equipped phone

If your phone has infrared functionality, it can control anything that responds to infrared signals. You'll likely find that there are apps like 'WatchON', which can be programmed to control your TV or set top box. Cool, Isn't it?

But still, if your phone doesn't have a built in infrared control,don't bother ro get that had it included, you'll definitely find that Google Play has a few downloads available.

Your phone can identify songs

Oldschool apps like Shazam has already been there for long which means that this function is not that exclusive, but still pretty cool. You could get Shazam or SoundHound for your Android either of which can be used to identify a song as it's playing.

Both Google and Microsoft are coming up with apps, Google's solution is called 'Sound Search' and For Windows Phone users,  simply tap the search button while a song is playing, then tap the music icon and VOILA!

You can turn your Android into a game console

Now, this one's amazing. There are some powerful Android phones around, and on the race of getting everything in your pocket developers have come up with technology through which you can turn your Smartphone into a console controller.

MHL (aka Mobile High-Definition Link) is a way to connect phones to HD televisions and monitors. By using an MHL cable connected to the micro USB port on your phone at one end and your screen's HDMI port at the other, you can play console games easily. Not all phones support this, but some do, in particular Samsung and Sony support MHL on a number of their handsets.And Yeah, It might lag at times.

Use your Android to check temperature and humidity

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is packed full of useful and not so useful features, one of them is its temperature and humidity sensors. It's an odd use for an unusual feature, but still something you might not know, so I'm just putting it out here.

You can send and receive visual voicemail to your phone

App, such as 'HulloMail', displays your voicemail as a menu, allowing you to tap a message to play it rather than having to listen to every message in order. It even allows to view voicemails as text, though that function isn't free. Of course, they won't give away everything for free.

Use the volume buttons to skip music

On Android it can be achieved with the help of app such as 'Pocket Skip Track', that allows you to change track by double tapping the volume buttons. For blackberry, go to the 'System Volume' in settings and in is, it's not possible without jailbreak. And Windows phone falls far behind, as usual.

Block numbers

Apps like 'Truecaller' and 'Mr. Number', apart from notifying the person who's calling, it can natively block a number too.

Transfer Music from iPhone 4S to PC without iTunes.

We all use iTunes. It's our gateway to millions of song downloads, thousands of TV shows and movies, that killer new App Store, and a terrific selection of podcasts. Without it, our iPods and iPhones would be empty, lonely, and sad.

But, oh, iTunes tends to act non-responsive at times. It lacks some the most obvious features which in-turn troubles us and does things that are just plain dumb. Sometimes, It wont show up all the songs that you have in and many other problems like updating it frequently.

Well, I've came up with some alternatives which surely will ease the transfer of your favorite music to your PC and vice versa..

CopyTrans Manager

It is a free software that allows you to transfer iPod music from iPod, copy music from iphone to itunes, transfer music from ipod to computer by simple 
drag and drop. Easy as cake.


Its the same as CopyTrans but more user interactive.

Ecoute automatically detects and syncs with your iTunes library. In Ecoute, you can sort by artist, album, composer, genre, playlist and song. Ecoute also has a small widget that stays on your desktop when you're playing a song, which you can use to easily access play controls.

Tomahawk syncs all of your online accounts as well as local collections into one streamlined app. Available for Windows, Mac and a plethora of other operating systems.

Its an OS X  music player that is good if you want something that won't get in your way. With a streamlined user interface, Vox has a clean design that is also easy-to-use.

Stay Tuned for more updates on android and iOS.

Android or iOS. What's Your Pick?

Well, This is the first question that comes to one's mind looking for a new phone or Tablet.Even though iOS 7 has been reeling in some rave reviews and is undeniably sleeker and better than any previous Apple OS, it still falls short of Android in several areas.

More Apps!

Androids Google Play Store doesn't  always offer better quality, but it does offer far more options than the App Store.

Ending Sharing Options.

In iOS apps, you can only share content via a few basic choices like Message, Mail, Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr. In Android, however, your app world is your oyster: You can move content through any installed app with sharing capabilities.

Third Party Keyboard Softwares

There aren many complaints about the typing experience on iOS 7, but Android still offers more options. You can replace Androids default keyboard with any third-party alternatives. Apps like SwiftKeys are one of the best alternatives.

More Customization

If you want to customize your android, the sky's the limit. Change anything you feel like.  But There are not many options in iOS. This is something Apple needs to work on, making iPhone more customizable.

A Better Notification Bar

One thing about android's popularity is its simplicity and transparency over its functions and everything. Comparing it to iOS 7, it revamps the iPhone Notification Center, Androids is still better.  

Images With Contact List

Android can automatically import photos for your contacts. Pretty Cool.

Ease With Multimedia

Android doesn't  care where your music comes from. Apple and iOS 7, however, require iTunes if you want to load your iPhone up with songs.

Stay tuned for more posts! :)
