Samsung has uploaded a new video to YouTube highlighting the features of the Galaxy S5, while taking a gentle poke at the iPhone. The Samsung Galaxy S5 was announced back in February and became available this month. Following its “the next big thing is here” theme, the new S5 video highlights the key features of the flagship phone.

Starting with the display, Samsung mentions the S5’s 5.1 inch full HD display and declares that it is the best screen that the company has ever created for a smartphone. Next is the ultra HD camera which snaps photos with “twice the resolution of the iPhone.” This is followed by a brief look at the new camera app features like the different image enhancement capabilities and the lens blur effect.

Samsung also mentions S-Health, the heart rate monitor and shows the integration between the Galaxy S5 and the Samsung Gear 2. Finally there is the water resistance. Personally I must admit that I have always thought of the water resistance in terms of accidentally spilled water or mishaps where you unfortunately drop your phone in water.

These scenarios are all played out in the video, but one part of the video which took me by surprise was the guy brushing his teeth, who rinsed his phone under the tap! Check out the video and please let me know what you think of the Galaxy S5 and of Samsung’s latest video.
