Another video all showing people in a restaurant talking on their phones. Rude.
Ayme: Want to know phone is not only smart but stylish. "In your hands, a smartphone has never felt better." (I think Apple would disagree with that).
Electric blue color is almost blinding.
Ayme: We'll be adding designer covers too.
Ayme: What's inside matters too. We've refined the user interface so it's gleaming, vibrant etc
Ayme: The overlook is clearly simple and uncluttered. Larger icons in settings, more visual, easier to navigate.
Ayme: One touch toolbox to put your favorite apps at your fingertips
Samsung's settings menu on the s4 was always so complicated to look through. Hopefully these round little icons will make it a bit easier
5.1-inch full HD super AMOLED screen. This delivers a superior viewing experience than TFT displays found in other handsets.
Ayme - says phone will be easier to see in blazing sun of Barcelona. Also can make display extremely dim (super dimming) so people can't see what you're doing (but I wonder if you can even see it if it's that dim. haha)
Ayme: Adaptive display for advanced view experience. ... 2,800 mAh battery, 10 hours of Web browsing with LTE connection, 12 hours of video playback
Apparently you can get 12 hours of video playback. 12 hours of nyan cat? Sign me up!
Ayme: The customer feedback is so clear on this. Have to have good camera. Now have fast autofocus, HDR rich tone, selective focus
The s5 has an always on HDR mode
Ayme: New hybrid autofocus combines tech from more advanced standalone cameras. .. Users get increased precision, faster response time, etc.
Ayme: 0.3 seconds autofocus. The fastest ever for a smartphone.
Not as much applause coming from the audience as Samsung probably expected. Journalists prob too busy typing to clap. haha
The image sensor is physically larger than the s4's. Remember: the larger the sensor, the more light it can take in and the better your pictures should be.
Ayme: To get satisfactory results, you have to remain very stable, and it takes precious time to process the images too. How is our new rich tone better? Instantly controls light exposure at the time you focus to give you in real time a picture that has the contrast of real life. What you see is what you get. HDR also works for videos. This is another smartphone first
HDR images combine photos with high and low exposure to, hopefully, make a well exposed photo overall
(In case you haven't noticed, Samsung is big on being "first.")
Ayme: This is a great camera that our customers will love. ... the Galaxy S5 camera is definitely ready for its closeup. But it's not enough to be beautiful. You've got to be fast.
Ayme: In today's world it's all about one thing - speed.
Ayme: Need the fastest network to sustain high traffic for you. Full Cat 4 LTE coverage
The s4's camera is great so I'm really looking forward to seeing what the new one can do
