Samsung Galaxy S5: Top 16 tips and tricks

Get the most out of your Galaxy S5

The Samsung Galaxy S5 features a download booster, which is an excellent way to download files larger than 30MB.

It combines Wi-Fi and 4G connectivity to provide extra bandwidth and download speed, with some truly quick results. We managed to grab a 2GB HD copy of Avengers Assemble from the Google Play store in just over five minutes.

Naturally, anyone with a smaller data allowance should be wary of exceeding their limits, as it could potentially gobble up your allocation quite quickly.

Don't be afraid of spills

The IP67 Certification on the Galaxy S5 means that it is dust proof and water resistant, meaning no more worries about getting your phone a little wet when the weather lets you down or you accidentally drop it in the sink. The ports at the bottom of the device are covered though you should always make sure the back cover is securely in place after removing it or opening the latch to access the charging port.

Water resistance isn't the same as waterproof, of course, so you shouldn't push your luck too much by going swimming with your phone or purposefully submerging it in water.
