Default Does the S5 still have Air View, Gestures and Smart Screen features?

I saw the reveal yesterday and have read countless articles about the S5. There was no mention of them in the announcement and nobody has any info about it. Anyone?

Id' heard it's been dumbed down a bit, which i was interested in, for me the SGS4 was a bit gimmicky, seemed to be too much going on at the same time.

After a while you simply don't use some of the gestures, you rely on what you know, probably why the HTC One was so popular, it's system was literally stripped of anything it didn't need, worked really well and it's been the best to date, i think Sammy could take a thing or two from that.

Yep, they should definitely remove things like the smart scroll or the smart pause. Those are not even gimmicky, they are simply useless.

Agreed, they're simply to show off to people who've been using the likes of an iphone.

In real life they're pretty crap indeed.

Based on your signature, I'm wondering how are you liking the S5 so far? How's the battery life compared to the S4?
