Galaxy 11: The Samsung Galaxy S5 and soccer, okay, football, will save the planet
Samsung has been promoting #GALAXY11 for several months now. It boils down to a soccer…er…football match with aliens. Now, Samsung is bringing its flagship Galaxy S5 smartphone into the fray.

#GALAXYS5 is helping the football team get its training underway. No pressure, only that the fate of the world is apparently held in the balance of our team’s feet and defeating the alien visitors in any way possible.  The Galaxy S5 is the key to the team's training.

The Galaxy S5 is put through its paces, from its Download Booster feature, to the fast camera. Gear Fit makes an appearance and of course it would not be complete without the heart rate monitor on the S5 being highlighted.  The Galaxy S5’s water resistance is tested as the players slide through the water in training, only to miss an alien drone-football’s mission to steal the training center’s hub, another Galaxy S5. Not to fear though since Samsung Gear 2 is used to help find the phone.

Then, #GALAXY11 saves their training facility from falling prey to a self-destruct device in the drone. It’s all in a day’s work, and that was just the training. All-in-all, it’s an impressive production.

Samsung produced all this so that you could get in on the action with its new game, The Match: Striker Soccer G11, available in Google Play or Samsung Apps. With the game, you play as the best soccer players across a number of playing battle fields. There are a number of other games Samsung has put together as well, Galaxy 11 Soccer Wars, Galaxy 11 Cannon Shooter, and Galaxy 11 Shooting Soccer.

Get to downloading and playing, the fate of the world hangs in the balance.

They should have spent all these resources on improving the Touchwiz instead...:(

In an ideal world, yes. However, Samsung drives demand through relentless promotion and advertising, and in some ways, this is what they are best at -- being a truly mass market Android HW developer and marketer. I don't think anyone does it better.

TouchWiz is the most flexible and capable android ui there is. Whether people acknowledge it or not, at the cost of "bloat"(device dependent) or lag( non existent in my Note 3) your getting a device with features like multi window, pen window, air view, s beam, s health, and quick updates to name a few. I respect your opinion, but IMO Samsung sorta takes care of their users. When I buy my yearly Galaxy Note, I can rest assured I'm getting a featured packed Smartphone that won't let me down especially in the software department. Now Knox is another story.

One time I had to transfer a 1.5gb file from my friends G2 to my Note 3. The G2 didn't even have WiFi Direct as an option. That may be just his phone or stock rom and that may be nothing at all to the next person. But for someone like me who fixes computers and phones, that's one of the little things I can't be bothered with.

My thought too, sure tw isn't the best looking ui for all but I think the mass market are comfortable with the colorful ui and for me tw pretty much everything I need without me having to resort to 3rd party apps that may do it or not. If you think of something to do, chances are tw has it built in lol now it's up to the individual to decide if that's a good or bad thing too have so many options, I personally think option is good as long as there's the choice to turn it on and off easily and tw does that with its toggles.

There's nothing to improve on Touchwiz

Mobile Cpu are weak and rubbish that does not have the power to push torque Touchwiz

There are much better cpu out there but every Oems use Snapdragon

To the Americans it's soccer. Technically, both terms are correct.

Um, no you are wrong there as the US wasn't the first or last ones to call the sport soccer.

A few countries call it soccer, like Canada, USA and South Africa, but most countries call it football. Still weird that it's called American football when they handle the ball most of the times with their hands.

I love cricket too. At least, I have to since I'm an Indian. But I prefer football cuz of its shorter game time and just the overall thrill of it. Can't wait for the World Cup! :D
