First Samsung Galaxy S5 promo video appears

First Samsung Galaxy S5 promo video appears
Samsung just posted its first Galaxy S5 promo video, extolling the virtues of its new flagship. It mainly goes through the features that separate it from the competition, like the heart rate sensor on the back, but also stresses on the improvements that have happened in comparison with its previous flagships, such as a better Adaptive Display technology, and a camera with larger image sensor.

The company had its first commercials for the device aired during the Oscars awards, where it was a sponsor, and received a somewhat unexpected publicity via the most popular selfie of all times. This promo video is more of a brief journey through all the new features of the device that Samsung thinks are worth mentioned and demonstrated, so check it out below.

Just give me the phone already. Waiting a month is going to be hard. :/ The video was great nonetheless, and liked how it showed what had improved rather just a spec list.

I saw a best comment from gsmarena, the comment is as follows . " Let me share my past experience. I upgraded from Lumia 820 to Galaxy S4. When I had Lumia 820 , I was like "Who needs a 1080p display and 13MP camera ? I like 4.3 inch screen on my 820 , its good enough for me , screen is also awesome , I don't find anything wrong with it" I bought Galaxy S4 (mainly because I didn't like WP) and used it for like 2 months. Galaxy S4 literally spoiled me in those 2 months.I didn't use 820 until 2 months later. Then my thoughts were : "Aghh look at that 480p AMOLED display on my old 820 , it sucks , Camera also not very good as my GS4 , Screen is also too small , very big bezels , its also not as good as I felt before" I had same experience with Retina Displays too. Galaxy S5 is better than Galaxy S4. Galaxy S4 is better than Galaxy S3. If you have money , upgrading is good , if you don't want to waste money , then stay with current hardware. "

Sure the camera is impressive , but many of the features here like download boaster , the new UI and battery saving mode could be ported to my awesome note 3.

You can see its design with huge side bezel. The physical button at the bottom line along with two capacitive keys make the S5 look like an enlarged S3. Wait, any lags on its newer touchwiz can't help S5 any better than S3. Lol.

Check the phones I've owned in the past. Do you see HTC in the mix? Exactly. Bye!

You're the same about Sony phones, hypocrite. Stupid fanboy's.. (both Samsung and Sony fanboys). Both are great in their own way. Both pros and cons IMO are: S5 over Z2 - Capacative buttons - Removable battery - Better camera software - It reminds me of my great S2, which I lost (lol) Z2 over S5 - Price - IPX8 - 1/2,3" sensor - Bigger battery - Really nice looking UI

There's a difference between hating a company and hating their disgusting UI. ;)

To those bashing the s5 (mostly Sony fans), the z2 isn't exactly much of an upgrade from the z1/z1s either, it's really hard to tell the difference between the 2 anyway! Specs wise, the S5 and z2 are on equal footing, but hey, the s5 does more and has more features than your phone. I must give it to Sony that the xperia Z series looks and feel pretty good. Might be nicer if you're showcasing your phone in a museum.

Don't tell them that. You'll get bashed for being 'a fanboy' simply because you disagree with what they say.

I dont use thhose 'features' in daily usaga for example air wiew , hovering gestures , and so on... s5 does more but it is not a valid difference for me I think they should gather good design team and they need to get rid of gimmicky 'features'

The s5 has some great features especially in the camera. And I like the s - health app too.

You can turn those off. I will probably turn off fingerprint scanner as well. I just think they somehow drain the battery faster.

Very nice ad. Can't wait to buy the phone together with the Galaxy Fit come April.

Hey PapaSmurf, since you are a Samsung expert, could you tell me if S5 will have the same problem as the S4 wherein the chrome paint on the phone's frame peels off? That is my major turn off right now plus the missing FM radio support (but I can live with that).
