Ayme: All want faster network speeds. Why combined fifth gen of Wi-Fi with new gen of Mimo to double speeds. This is also a world first in smartphones.
(I should be keeping track of how many "firsts" Samsung has here.)
Ayme: Download booster. Full HD video ready to go before microwave popcorn has finished popping.
The s5 combines LTE and wifi to make your downloads super fast. Apparently
Ayme: As everything moves more quickly, you want your device to be protected and follow your lifestyle. .. we all know water and electronics don't mix.
GS5 is water and dust resistant (let's hope this works better than the GS4 Active, which had some complaints)
It's dust resistant, which is great news for me and my apartment
Ayme: The S5 is protected for your lifestyle. Water resistant is not waterproof. Don't keep it under water.
Ayme: Ultra power saving mode. ... How many of you have had your phone die at a critical moment?
Ayme: With ultra power saving mode. It will turn the display to B&W and shut down all features except essentials like SMS and calls (this actually sounds really amazing. I often turn my display brightness as low as possible)
Ayme: Phone can last 24 hours of standby mode (Yowza!)
We're being told about the ultra power saving mode. It basically cuts down all the smart features of the phone. You can get home, but don't try tweeting on the way.
Ayme: Also protects your data, and the key is right here (holds up finger). Finger Scanner uses your fingerprint. Encrypted on your device and never shared. Can swipe finger to make secure payments etc
Ayme: Private mode. Allows user to set that only that person can access certain photos, etc.
Ayme: This next feature is perfect when sharing your smartphone with other members of the family. Kids Mode - preinstalled apps, etc, that kids can use.
I don't have kids, but if I did, I really wouldn't want them going through my phone. This is probably a feature I'd appreciate
Ayme: These are some examples of how your life will be powered by the Galaxy S5.
Marketing guy is back up (sorry. I can't remember his name) - No. 1 goal is staying fit.
Exec: This year, Gear 2 represents progress. We kept what was successful about Gear 1, fixed customer pain points, and new innovations. Five key areas:
We're talking about the gear 2. Note the lack of the word "galaxy" there -- this is not an android device. It uses Samsung's own Tizen software
Exec: Smart style. Design improvements in Gear 2 were made with simplicity and chic in mind. results were both beautiful. Speaker, camera, and mic moved on to bezel so can now swap out the strap. Strap standard in three colors - black, brown, orange, and designer versions are also available
Exec: Added a home button like on smartphone. Can return to home menu with press of one button rather than flipping all the way through the apps
The home button is a welcome addition. I found the old watch a bit awkward to get around.
Exec: More watch face options, can change background color, font, etc
Exec: Instant notifications give you the knowledge you need. Plus you get your heartrate.
Exec: working out while listening to music is a must. But pain to hold phone/etc. With 4GB of memory, Gear 2 is also a standalone music player.
Exec: The second is extended ecosystem. Gear 2 was established as part of long-term vision for ecosystem of devices to enhance the lives of our customers.
The on board storage means you can play music from the watch without having to have it paired to your phone in your pocket. Handy for runners
Exec: Has own infrared so can control TV etc
Exec. No. 3 is more choices. Gear 2 also comes in a range of options. If you want a lighter version for your wrist or your wallet, have Neo 2.
Exec: Gear 2 can sync with 17 Galaxy devices at launch (unlike Gear 1 which only worked with Note 3 at first)
