Buying a Galaxy S5? Here’s how to get a head start learning all its key features

Samsung Galaxy S5 User Manual Released

The Galaxy S5 launch is less than 10 days away and now prospective buyers can get a head start on learning all its key features because Samsung has just released the device’s official user manual as a downloadable PDF. In addition to giving you all the basic information that you get with any smartphone — i.e., how to make calls, connect to Wi-Fi, etc. — the manual also has a whole section dedicated to Samsung’s new S Health fitness tracker software that will incorporate the Galaxy S5’s built-in heart-rate monitor, among other new features.

The section on S Health is 14 pages long and it gives you detailed instructions for how to use it to track your daily caloric intake, to track the number of steps you walk and to keep a log of the all the exercise you do throughout the week. Other key parts of the manual include a 20-page section that tells you how to take, modify and share pictures with the Galaxy S5’s new 16-megapixel camera and a three-page section that tells you everything you need to know about the Galaxy S5’s new fingerprint scanner that’s been designed to add an extra layer of security to the device.
