Smile [Global] Galaxy S5 - International Users [Discussion][Everything Covered]

Welcome to Official Galaxy S5 Global Discussion Thread.
I started this thread for discussion about the new Galaxy S5 around the Globe.[Everything Covered Here]
Galaxy S5




Capturing Lifetime Moments
Fast Auto Focus
Don't miss the action

Don't hesitate to shoot and capture action as it's happening! The faster Auto Focus helps you capture important moments of movement more quickly and in focus.


HDR(Rich tone)
For brighter & vivid captures

For both photos and videos, turn on the HDR when there is a strong counterlight or when the subject is shaded.
Preview in real time natural light and color being reproduced vividly and clearly while you take your shot.



Selective Focus
Treasure moments in detailed focus

Selective Focus allows you to focus on what’s important by blurring the background and accentuating the main subject
in defined detail.


Supporting a Healthier Lifestyle

Heart Rate Sensor
Following your every beat

Galaxy S5 is the first smart phone with a built-in Heart Rate
Sensor which enables you to measure your heart rate
directly on your phone.





Place your finger on the back of the
Galaxy S5 and measure your heart rate.


S Health
Your personal fitness tracker

The enhanced S Health leads you through your fitness routines daily and consistently.
Set your goals and achieve them with the help of Galaxy S5's pedometer and S Health’s constant tracking of your
condition, walking distance, calories, speed, duration, and so on.


Galaxy S5 connects with the new Samsung Gear Fit and
Gear 2 to give you freedom to do more.


Samsung Gear


The Most Accelerated Network Experience


Download Booster
Powered speed with LTE & Wi-Fi together

The Download Booster technology lets you use the LTE and Wi-Fi
simultaneously to give you an unrivaled network experience!
When you need to download files in a hurry, turn on the LTE and Wi-Fi
together and experience approximately 80~90% of the added network
speed of LTE and Wi-Fi.

The LTE and Wi-Fi speed on the screen are an illustration.
The Download Booster speed may vary according to
network environment and location.


MIMO(Multi-Input Multi-Output)
Doubled connection, Faster speed

The 5th generation Wi-Fi 802.11ac and 2X2 MIMO technology equip Galaxy S5 with two internal Wi-Fi antennas to
double the connection and accelerate the speed of your Wi-Fi like never before
.

Protecting Your Freedom
from Dust & Water



Dust & Water Resistant
Made to last longer and stronger

With an IP67 certification, Galaxy S5 is resistant to sweat, rain, liquids, sand and dust, so your phone is protected for
any activity and situation.


Your Finger is Your Key


Finger Scanner
Fingerprint security & access

Security has been upgraded and personalized. You can now
unlock your phone and make faster and more secure
payments via PayPal with the swipe of your finger.
When purchasing content with Samsung services, you can
use your fingerprint instead of entering your Samsung
account password.

No More Need to Worry

Power Saving Mode (+Ultra Power Saving Mode)
Enhancing power for important situations

Use the Power Saving Mode to save and extend your battery life so you no longer have to worry about missing important
calls when your phone is running low on battery. In addition, the new Ultra Power Saving Mode changes your screen to
black and white and shuts down all unnecessary features to dramatically minimize battery consumption.


Unveiling a New World of Perspective
5.1” Full HD Super AMOLED Display
A stunning view with rich vitality

Galaxy S5 offers the most excellent viewing experience a smartphone can offer. Its FHD Super AMOLED display is
brighter with more clarity, delivering a deeper and more vivid screen view. Galaxy S5’s advanced Local Contrast
Enhancement enables it to adapt and change according to the variation in light conditions. Under the sun or too
much light, Galaxy S5 gives you an optimized display for you to see clearly and easily. On the other hand, when
there is a lack of light, Galaxy S5 allows you to dim your display light so that your eyes feel more comfortable in the dark.



Adapt Display
For a more personalized viewing experience

Galaxy S5 is equipped with Samsung’s advanced display technology enhancing your viewing experience beyond
expectations. The Adapt Display analyses incoming lights and the contents you're viewing and automatically
optimizes the colour range, saturation, and sharpness of your display. Experience your Gallery, Camera, Internet,
Video, and Smart Remote applications with a display adapted to you.

This always feels so unfair Whenever we hear US prices in Finland (Northern Europe) we just know that it will be the same number but the currency is in Euros. The SGS5 costs 700€ in Finland right now, that's about 970$

Well I can post a confirmation here later when the sales start but I'm 99% sure that no matter what Samsung confirms or not, the price we'll be paying won't be any different unless we order abroad

AT&T confirms galaxy s5 ,gear 2 and gear fit prices
Refer http://www.sammobile.com/2014/03/20/...egin-tomorrow/
U.S. carrier AT&T has just announced prices for all four devices – consumers will have to pay $199 for the Galaxy S5 on a two-year contract and $649 if they’re buying it outright, $299 for the Gear 2, and $199 for the Gear 2 Neo or Gear Fit. Keep in mind that the full retail price of $649 is the price for AT&T’s variant of the Galaxy S5, and that the price for the unlocked model will likely be higher (but not much higher if a leak earlier in the day is to be believed.)

They only sell unlocked models here and if the AT&T unlocked model is higher than 649$ it will be closer to 700$ and US prices tend to translate into the same figure in euros for us.

According to Korean media, Samsung's new flagship Android phone will be priced at 800 Won ($744 USD). The original launch price of the Samsung Galaxy S4 was 890 Won ($827 USD).

Galaxy s5 would be priced cheaper than its predecessor galaxy s4
