Default tweaks to do on the S5 at the first boot

Hello,


I will edit the first post after you post ideas



- connect to your Samsung Apps account

- connect to your Google account

- activate fingerprint lock

- activate PayPal (how?)

- activate Google Wallet

"- set SMS app to Google Hangouts or to the Samsung SMS app
"

- root the S5

- put your ringtones mp3 in the ringtone folder

- is it possible to remove the sound when a picture is taken?
maybe with Camera ZoomFX

- turn off the time zone automatically detected

- Set the brightness to auto or maximum

- activate power saving mode

turn on light all the time on the 2 "return" and "multi-task" buttons

set up Google Now

Configure Data Usage

Enable Lock Screen Widgets
Go into your main system settings, then to Security. Near the top is a checkbox for "Enable widgets."

APPS
- install Cerberus anti-theft App
- install Light Flow lite app

- tweak Gmail notifications

BUY
- buy an extra battery
(where?)

- buy a case or a cover

I plan on rooting the device and running Nova launcher. Hopefully I can get FoxFi to run after the device has been rooted.

I purchased a couple 16GB SD cards last week while they were on sale.

I also purchased this case as seen in the picture below.
