Samsung Galaxy S5,everything you need to know

[update] buy galaxy s5 at cheapest price[in india] from Flipkart

Samsung Galaxy S5 has finally been launched at MWC Barcelona and mind you, Samsung fanboys are in for some disappointment!!

Galaxy S5 features a 5.1 inch full HD 1080p super AMOLED screen,contrary to the rumored 2k QHD display.The QHD screen would have been an impractical choice as it would drain the battery faster and cause performance issues.

Galaxy S5 is powered by a  snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at
 2.5 GHz and features Adreno 330 GPU. No word on the exynos(octa core) version  yet.

The camera has been upgraded significantly ,the rear shooter is a 16MP unit with selective focus and and supports 4K video recording.

Surprise!!surprise!! Galaxy S5 features a fingerprint scanner in the home button.You need to swipe your finger 8 times to record it and after that you will be able to unlock the S5 with your fingerprint. You can also authorize PayPal payments with just a single swipe of your registered finger. 

On a positive note,the standard version of galaxy s5 is waterproof and dustproof with IP67 certification ,this means no separate "active" version of the phone.

Galaxy s5 features Heart rate monitor,humidity and temperature sensors apart from the usual set of sensors.

Galaxy S5 runs on android 4.4 KitKat,with a new version of TouchWiz UI with flat and round icons.Galaxy S5 supports "OK, Google" command to launch Google Now anywhere,just like the Moto X.

Galaxy S5 features 2GB RAM,16/32 GB internal storage and an SD card slot.

Most disappointing part of Galaxy S5 is the design,The front looks similar to that of Galaxy S4,back of the device features a matte plastic with dotted texture.Galaxy S5 will be available in Gold, black,blue and white colors.

Galaxy S5 features microUSB 3.0 ports ,MHL ,LTE connectivity with download booster mode where you can use both Wi-Fi and LTE for super-fast downloads.WiFi a/b/g/n ,NFC and bluetooth 4.0 is also supported.Battery capacity is of 2800 mAH.

Galaxy S5 will be available in early APRIL along with the new galaxy gear series,stay tuned for more updates.

Run android apps on your PC

Candy Crush on BlueStacks app player
There are multiple ways to emulate Android on a PC and you don't need to be a geek to do so.
We are Going to demonstrate one of the simplest ways to run Android apps and games on a windows based PC or a Mac using the BlueStacks app player.

The app player provided by BlueStacks is basically a virtual machine running on Android Jellybean with several optimizations,which allows you to run apps smoothly(to some extent!) and in a full screen mode.

download the BlueStacks installer for Windows(XP,VISTA,Win 7/8) or MAC OS X from the 
official website

Update your Graphic card drivers -
This step is very important as the player won't run unless you have the latest drivers.

Install the App player. BlueStacks can be installed on any location on your hard drive,however in Windows based systems all the application data will be stored on the C drive so you need to have sufficient empty space in the C drive.5 GB space should be enough for casual use.

Open BlueStacks,boot up of the app player might take some time.Log in to your google account just as you do with a new phone or Tablet.
you are now ready to run mobile apps on your PC or Mac.



  • You can use Google PLAY store,AMAZON app store or any other market for app installations.
  • PLAY store is not visible on the home screen,use the search button to search for any app in the play store.
  • Apps installed from PLAY store are encrypted and are not visible from Windows explorer.
  • After finishing the installation all the APK files on your system will show the BlueStacks icon, just click on the APK file to install it on the app player.
  • Apps installed from Non Market sources are stored in the following directory-C:\ProgramData\BlueStacks\UserData\SharedFolder
Click on the App sync icon and enter the password of your google account.All your previous apps will be downloaded into BlueStacks.

That's it,Enjoy your Android apps and games!!!

Two versions of galaxy s5 confirmed via leaked benchmarks

We recently reported the existence of two versions of Galaxy S5 in our Rumor Roundup. Screenshots of Antutu benchmarks of both the versions are released by the Antutu china,confirming our expectations.
The "Premium" version internally known as SM-G900R4 is powered by a  a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800(MSM 8974AC) CPU Same as the one found in Gionee Elife E7, 3GB RAM, Andreno 330 GPU, 32GB internal storage, 16MP primary camera, 2.1MP front-facing unit, a 1440p QHD display, and will have Kit Kit 4.4.2 Skinned with a new version of TouchWiz.
The snapdragon version scores 31843 points on the benchmark,which is actually lower that the scores of Note 3 due to the presence of  a QHD display.
The "standard" version SM-G900H is powered by Samsung's own Exynos 5422 clocked at 1.5 GHz and features 2GB RAM, ARM Mali-T628 GPU, 16GB internal storage, 16MP camera and a 1080p FHD Display.
The exynos version scores 35445 on the benchmarks and beats both the Note 3 and the Snapdragon version.Judging from the low clock speed of exynos 5422 we suspect the chipset is capable of a true octa-core configuration similar to Mediatek MT6592.
AnTuTu benchmark is known to be overly generous to octa core chipsets ,despite low scores the snapdragon version is much more faster than the one powered by exynos.
Both versions of Galaxy S5 will be revealed on 24th Feb at Barcelona,stay tuned for more updates on the device.
