What are the advantages of the S5 compared to the SIII?

  1. Battery life
  • Battery after heavy usage on end of the day still 49/51% available
  • Daily 15-20 minutes hotspot enabled
  • Daily all the time the Gear 2 connected, Bluetooth always on
  • Intense app usage Feedly, Whatsapp and Facebook
  • 2x Exchange push synchronizing
  • 1x POP mail
  1. Speed
  • It works smoothly fast
  • Sometimes still mysterious delays for a short time, but I think those are caused due to bad network connectivity
  • I was enjoying the speed and I was amazed when I saw I had Energysavings mode enabled, forgot to turn it off. Plenty speed I suppose
  1. Inactivate unused apps
  • New is the feature to disable unused apps, I like this option.
  1. New Android version
  • The new android version gives little but nice features.
  1. Smartwatch Samsung Gear 2
  • Maybe the best accessory at this moment is the smartwatch of Samsung, the Gear 2. Handy gadget and fun to use. It gives some extra comfort to use your smartphone on a different way. Wearables are the future.
  1. Waterproof
  • Using the smartphone while not worrying about the rain is a nice feature in The Netherlands. I didn’t test the waterproof in actual water.
  1. IR remote control
  • Funny feature is the remote control which you can use to control devices. You can add rooms and select different brands and devices per room.
  1. Camera
  • The speed of the camera is impressive. Take a fast shot is possible. I experienced several times that the photo was out of focus, it such way the photo was not usable and I had no photo at all. Take a fast snap is better with the Gear 2. Those were till now all usable.
  • The option to be able to download new functions to the camera is a nice feature.
