    High five from Samsung, Galaxy S5 available from April 2014

    High five from Samsung, Galaxy S5 release date in April 2014
    Samsung has itself a new flagship mobile device in the shape of the Galaxy 55. Promising to "focus on what matters most to consumers", this latest Galaxy device backs up the firm's fitness centric focus, as seen in its Gear products, by including a bunch of apps and tools to help you stay fit and healthy.

    However, I am betting it's the core spec that you're going to want to know about, really. On that front, it has a 16MP camera with High Dynamic Range, its dust and water-resistant, comes with a 5.1" FHD Super AMOLED screen, is powered by a 2.5GHz quad core processor and runs Android Kitkat. Interestingly, it's also borrowed the Finger Scanner idea from Apple, providing a secure, biometric screen locking feature as well as offering safer mobile payments for users. 5amsung's focus on fitness is one way to separate it from the pack, and the company's assertion that it's going back to basics is likely a response to the somewhat lukewarm reaction to its 54 model. Will this fare better?

    it's almost the same with S4...but for those who havent tried yet s4 or note 3, you will definitely love this fone. im simply amazed with its internet speed and its all because of the quad core. definitely recommending this phone.

    Galaxy S5 hacked already

    Samsung was keen to herald the security factor when it unveiled its Galaxy S5 handset earlier this year, and so it should have done. Who wouldn't feel secure in the knowledge that a fingerprint sensor was a key part of the phone's make-up?


    Naturally, though, someone has already managed to fool that sensor system. Fortunately, that someones was one of the researchers at Security Research Labs over in Berlin, rather than a nasty hacker from the underworld. The team there used a mould of a fingerprint taken from a smartphone screen, which isn't exactly something you or we could just magic up in our spare time. The mould was then swiped over the sensor and, hey presto, access was granted.


    PayPal was mentioned in the researchers' finding, as it was worried that hackers could end up making online transactions with this hack. PayPal's response? Well, it's not too bothered, apparently: "While we take the findings from Security Research Labs very seriously, we are still confident that fingerprint authentication offers an easier and more secure way to pay on mobile devices than passwords or credit cards."
