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!
