Samsung-Galaxy-S5-img_assist-350x321

We're still a bit more than a month out from Samsung's Galaxy S5 and Gear smart watches, but Samsung is looking to keep the hype train going with its new intro videos. You know the drill – it's super-pretty, everything works perfectly, and there's calming music in the background.

The Galaxy S5 video goes down the Samsung-approved bullet points one by one, showing off each feature. There's the camera, heart rate monitor, MIMI WiFi, ultra power saving mode, fingerprint reader, and so on.

The new Gears, on the other hand (or wrist) have a more limited feature set. The video only focuses on the Gear 2 and Gear Fit. The Neo doesn't look as pretty on camera after all. It gives you an idea of how to operate the devices and demos some of the ways the Gear ties into the phone.

If you're salivating after watching the videos, you might want to clean up – you can't get these devices until April 11th.

    Don't tell me I am 1st. I hate being 'The 1st' :D

    • TheSparks

      Okay you're not 1st.

  • TheSparks

    Samsung sure knows how to do good marketing.

      Right? 2+ million retweets of Ellen's selfie also helped.

      • Somedude

        Some media said she switch backstage to iPhone lol. I am sure she prefers iPhone over samsung. Similar thing happen with Iker casillas (real madrid goalkeeper), he tweet something promoting some samsung phone, and the tweet legend say: twitter for iPhone.

          @Somedude: Ellen is an iPhone user -- her contact, calendar, email, etc all are on her iPhone. Samsung is not paying her to switch to a Note 3. Samsung sponsored the Oscar and paid ABC/Oscar to use their products. Is that so difficult to understand?

          • Somedude

            If she is an iPhone user then that proves she has good taste. Kudos Ellen! And Kudos Casillas!

        After getting paid by Sammy, I'd be wondering if it didn't help

    • Some dude

      They are just copying apple style in making this kind of videos. Btw I think apple videos are better.

      • shm224

        @some dude: sue them.

        • Some dude

          You know this videos are inspired in apple videos... Samsung is Apple biggest fan.

  • Taufiq Rahman

        • hot_spare

  • Rileey Poole

    I heard recently that Samsung Galaxy S6 to include water pistol, cigarette lighter and built in saver.Is this true at all?

    • David Martin

      Hi, Rileey, I think all these are only rumors, and I think what's the need to looking for Galaxy S6 while we have a mind-boggling device called Galaxy S5. Me and my wife have been using this device since it was first introduced. I came to know about the device when went through an informative article at http://www.cheapmonthlymobile.co.uk/samsung-mobile-phones/samsunggalaxys5mobilephone.asp#reviews It's certainly the best smartphone to go with.

    • http://galaxysamsungs6.com/ Sahil Arora

      It seems useless to have water pistol, cigrette lighter blah blah blah in Galaxy S6. Is it a smartphone or any other tool?? Stupid man!! :/
