    Default What features are you looking forward to in the S5?

    The Note 3 and S4 are filled with tons of software features, like Smart Stay, Smart Scroll or Air View and Air Call Accept to name a few; but these are for the most part seen as gimmicks that often do not work.
    Some of the features I liked were swiping over the front of the screen to preview time and notification information, being able to scroll between pages without touching the phone and being able to use the phone as a remote.
    What do you guys want to see in the next flagship? Aside from having less of them...

    As you said above, most of them didnt work in my experience. It would be interesting to see if they have a feature to unlock your phone with just ur eye, I know there is already a 'face' unlocking feature, but something more advanced, like an eye scanner would be pretty cool - much better than a finger scanner!!

    That would be pretty awesome, but I don't think we'll see it just yet
    I had no issues with any of the things mentioned, but I know some did. Mileage may very

    It would be good to see the phone with a different body to it, I like the plastic feel as I'm not scared encase I drop it, but metal would be cool. A better camera would also be good, I liked the camera, but found some of the pics too starchy

    I think what they should do is ditch most of the 'features' and focus on making one or two work correctly. If I had to pick 2, keeping the swipe for a screenshot, and flipping the phone over for instant mute is another.

    Smart Remote REALLY needs a MUTE button on the Lock Screen. Its the button that is needed most quickly. I have to power the TV off - not good.
