Samsung GALAXY S5: turning innovation up to 11 [REVIEW]

S5-blogger-review_hero

This week Samsung launched their latest offerings, the GALAXY S5 and associated wearables, in an exciting invite only event in Sydney last week. We sent guest blogger Michael Faro-Tusino from Unleash the Phones to tell us what he thinks.

Sitting in the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney, I watched with anticipation as Samsung Australia took to the stage. On show were the highly anticipated GALAXY S5 and Gear wearable devices, the new Gear 2, Gear Fit and Gear Neo.

The Galaxy S5 takes the innovations seen in last year’s Galaxy S4 and turns it up to 11. Rocking a fingerprint scanner in the home button (yes, just like Apple’s iPhone 5S) and a heart beat monitor beneath the rear camera, Samsung has set out to make the S5 truly personal.

Apparently, my heart rate was pretty high – the tech on show must have excited me!

Sony unveils the Xperia Z2 smartphone and tablet – coming soon to Telstra

Sony-Z2_hero

Mobile world Congress is one of my favourite times of the year. I get to see loads of innovations and get a first look at new mobile devices with many of their major manufacturers announcing their new flagship smartphones and tablets for the year.

Yesterday Sony announced their new Sony Xperia Z2 tablet and smartphone.  I am happy to confirm that both devices will be coming to Telstra very soon.

Like the rest of the Sony Xperia range, the Xperia Z2 devices are waterproof (up to 1.5 metres for 30 minutes) and dust resistant, a definite plus when it comes to damage protection.

Both devices are also 4G enabled so Telstra customers can enjoy our super-fast 4G speeds on the go.

Samsung GALAXY S5 coming to Telstra

Samsung-GALAXY-S5_hero

Samsung have announced their GALAXY S5 at the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona.

I tuned into the event and was pretty impressed with what I saw.

The GALAXY S5 is slightly larger than the GALAXY S4 with a 5.1-inch HD screen. It also comes with an IP67 rating, meaning it is both water and dust resistant, great news for those people who expose their mobile to the elements. Like its predecessors the GALAXY S5 memory is expandable with a microSD, offering customers complete memory flexibility.

A key feature of the GALAXY S5 for Telstra customers is the 4G and Cat-4 LTE capability. Telstra customers will be able to experience fast web browsing and downloading on this device by using our 4G network, which is currently four times larger than any other Australian mobile network.
