What you need to do is increase the touch sensitivity of the phone.

With galaxy S5, you don’t need any third party apps to lock or hide your private files. The phone comes with a privacy mode that is specifically dedicated to doing this.

When someone tries to access your phone, he/she will not be able to access the locked files unless he/she enters the unlock code or pattern.

Once you have downloaded the app, it will turn your phone into a child friendly device that is easy for your children to use. You can still set permission for certain apps and even set time for how long you want your children to use the phone. This means is that you can now allow your children to play GTA on your phone.
4. Virtual Tour Mode

This means that you can create a virtual tour for your family and friends about the places you visited. To get started, click on some pictures, add effects and then combine them to create a gif.
5. You can get caller information
This is another interesting feature you don’t want to miss out on. This feature comes in handy when you want to find more information about the person you are talking to on the phone. You can get information like email address while on phone and have it saved on your galaxy S5, which means that you can use it later when you need it.
6. Turn off sound effects
You will need to do this with all smartphones manufactured by Samsung. The galaxy S5 is no exception. This phone beeps every time you unlock it or touch it. And you’ll also experience this when you type on the GS5’s keyboard.
There are a number of ways to turn off these sound effects. The easiest way is to pull down the notification tray and tap the sound button to change to either silent or vibrate mode.
You can also go to the settings menu, then sound and uncheck “Sound when tapped” and “Touch sounds”. The noise can be irritating. So turning it off comes in handy in many ways.
7. Get all the plastic off your phone
If you think this is a joke about Samsung smartphones then it is a NO. But it raises concerns about how much removable plastic Samsung uses to keep its smartphones in good condition until you are ready to buy. This includes a near invisible piece over the camera lens.
Of course that’s not a bad thing. Just ensure that you get all the plastic off your phone before venturing out in public. You want to ensure that the plastic is off the camera before you start taking pictures with your friends.
