Samsung has a habit of loading feature packed software on its premium smartphones, not that I’m complaining, though this often makes it hard for the average user to figure out just how all of them work. Most users don’t go beyond some of the device’s biggest features, which are often touted in advertisements and promotional materials. Fact is, often there are quite a few features that go unnoticed. Not to worry though, the 10 hidden features of Samsung Galaxy S5 list created by the company itself has your back.


For example, one feature that exists in the 22 quick menu icons inside Setting app’s Display menu lets you increase the touch sensitivity of Galaxy S5’s display. Enabling this lets you interact with the touchscreen display even if you’re wearing gloves. It is actually so sensitive that you can even write on it with a pencil.

Other features described in the list include Kids Mode, which the company talked a great deal about at the launch event. It has a completely different user experience design that keeps kids occupied while keeping important data and content not suitable for them away. The mode can be used to allow and restrict access to apps and media content stored on the device.

The 10 hidden features of Galaxy S5 list is certainly an interesting read. Do check it out if you already own the device and want to be sure that you’re getting the best possible user experience.
