Been using the Samsung GALAXY S5 LTE and Samsung Gear 2 for the past 1 week and the experience was magical. I never ever have to worry if my phone gets into the water, or if my Gear 2 gets splashed on when I am washing my hands. Both devices are water resistant and dust proof. The GALAXY S5 LTE, coupled with a water resistant earphone jack, can stay underwater at a depth of one meter for up to 30 minutes.

Battery low? I no longer have to worry when I run out of battery, even if it’s the last 10% of my battery life. With the Ultra Power Saving Mode, I can extend the battery life to up to 30 hours! The best part is that I can still receive call, smses and whatsapp messages! I can even check my Facebook if I want to!

So far the battery life for both Gear 2 and GALAXY S5 LTE have been great. With only a single charge, my GALAXY S5 LTE can last me for 1 whole day even with Bluetooth on at all times and is continuously syncing with my Gear 2! As for the Gear 2, it can last me for about 3 days. Both devices charge quickly – it only takes about an hour and I’m ready to go!

One of the main highlights of the Samsung GALAXY S5 LTE is the camera function that comes with Real Time HDR. [With its advanced Real Time HDR,the GALAXY S5 LTE is capable of reproducing natural light and colour with striking intensity in any circumstances]

Like below the picture on the right is with HDR on!

It is a bright and vivid 16 MP camera with lots of different smart modes such as Selective Focus, Beauty Face and Panorama Shot for you to use for different occasions. [The new Selective Focus feature allows users to focus on a specific area of an object while simultaneously blurring out the background. With this capability, consumers no longer need a special lens kit to create a shallow depth of field (DOF) effect.] With these capabilities, I no longer need to bring my camera out. I can just use my GALAXY S5 LTE to shoot anytime anywhere.

What do you do when you’re out with friends and they ask to see your phone? Perhaps you have some stuff you don’t wish to share. Of course, rejecting your friends don’t seem so nice. Why not have a secret folder where only you can access? The Samsung GALAXY S5 LTE features a new Private Mode function which allows you to hide things that you don’t wish for people to see. Now your privacy is all protected! [You can use your smsun the smart phone even if you friends try to force you to share your password.]

The Samsung Gear 2 comes with a 2 MP camera and 4 GB of internal memory. It’s light on the hand weighing only 68 grams, and I wear it to sleep all the time! The 4GB memory allows you to load your favorite music and listen on the go without bringing your phone out as it also functions as a standalone music player. The Gear 2 measures my heart rate and helps me to track my sleep and steps I walk. Being able to track my heart rate whenever I want is important as this helps me to gauge if I am training at my optimal level.
