For anybody who wants an extraordinary S5, get the golden version along with a black back case. This way when u put on the black case, your phone will have a golden bezzel but will be black. Thankyou. *this can be useful for those who have gotten the golden version and donot really like it!
Another tip guys. Some people are worried that they cannot save more than 3 fingerprints, however you can. For the fingers that you willnot use daily you can use the third slot, in which you can use 2 attempts for each finger. Slot 1 and 2 can be used for the same purpose or for saving fingerprints which will be used a lot. If u sign in 4 fingers in one slot, they willnot be accurately matched everytime but they do work 60 to 70% of the times. Thankyou!

Tcool, 01 Jun 2014You seem to know too much. Now try this:
1. Please explain how it works when using winter glo... moreYes, i know the answer to your basic questions. It works with the gloves as there are your hands in the glove and digitalizer uses them to change capacitance. I already said that the digitaliser on s5 is on an overdrive and can sense your hands even if they are some distance away from the screen. Try a plastic hand in the glove. It won't work. Or the hand of a mannequin inside a glove.
ok. inside the water, the whole surface gets touched and the phone can't respond to where it's touched. It's like placing your palm on phone. To my proof, kkep your s5 under a tap when it's on, if water has a pressure on some app or such thing, it'll open up. So the screen may go haywire. to avoid this, samsung has a button that turns off the screen response, or the digitaliser so that the screen doesn't go haywire and do anything wierd.
Any other queries on this matter? and an advice: don't try to look over-smart.
Have a nice sunday
Muba Kanyama, 01 Jun 2014Why my bettery life is too short when using internet?Because your internet network provider signal is poor.
The phone consumes too much power to connect to the network.

1. Please explain how it works when using winter gloves.
Do you mean winter gloves are conductive?
2. Water is a good conductor, how come the S4 Active screen is not responding to screen touch when under water? S4 Active has capacitive touch screen.
I am using s3 right since 1.5 yrs and used s5 of my friend for last 2 days. Here is my review ;
Battery ; almost 80% more than s3, mainly due to Kitkat
Display ; certainly great although phone heats up particularly front area during long call otherwise Ok
Look; not looks a flagship phone at all, metal like ring is even worse than s4
Call quality ; although loud but not as clear as s3 moreover back flip cover vibrats during talking if other person has loud voice
Finger print scanner ; no problem almost 99% accurate in my case
Camera ; just fabulous
New TouchWiz ; I like very much, person who is not so techy may not feel that much
Value for money ; not at all at this price of 40000 in India. Maximum price of this set should be 30000 only in my opinion.
Had this phone for about 2 weeks now. And so far I'm very happy with it. Battery life is good. Still have 38% from yesterday (7:00am) It's 8:30am now. And I'm Emailing, Whatsapp,BBM and surfing the web and using maps. Very good phone

It can't work when you put a non-conducting object on it. The digitalizer measures the change in capacitance that touches the screen.
Now, for normal digitalizers we need a conducting surface with good surface area. From onwards the s4, samsung worked on the digitalizer to make it more sensitive and detect a capacitance change even when the conductor is some distance above it. The thing you call as air view is an example of that tech. The reason it works with fingernails is that your skin is near and it can detect the change in capacitance change. Also the fingernails are conducting and they change capacitance. Even the screen of s4 and note 3 work with fingernails. Try with the end of a plastic pen. It won't work. Now samsung worked with the digitalizer and removed the barrier for area. So even the small tip of a graphite pencil can interact. Try it with the other end of pencil which is wood i presume and it won't work.
The screens that detect pressures are called resistive touch and are a very very old tech and used in cheap touch phones. They can be used with anything and any material.
Have a nice day.
