Amoled is a no no. LCD would've been much better.

AnonD-116257, 01 Jun 2014I see, thanks for the info!! But my s5 works with wood =OI can't believe that. Was your finger at least 1-2 inches away from the screen???????

OHH got it. Even on the other side, there is the graphite lead. Can you please try another plastic or wood with your hands more than 1-2 inches away from the screen.

darkgamer, 01 Jun 2014i already apologized about the button in a comment below. I... moreYes you are right. I wasn't really asking for an apology. I was just agreeing with what you said. You really do have knowledge about smartphones!

darkgamer, 01 Jun 2014Yes, i know the answer to your basic questions. It works wi... moreOk fine.

Will you do the same? Don't try look over-smart.

Bye... see you later.

darkgamer, 01 Jun 2014Yes, i know the answer to your basic questions. It works wi... moreSir you are almost right but I'm not really sure if there's any button. However there are a few sensors that actually do turn the touchscreen off. Other than that you are right about everything!

Yo bro, 01 Jun 2014Don't speak thing u don't know of. Let the AndroidPro speak... moreDon't talk things you don't know of. May i know what i don't know of and i said it. I know how digitalizers work pretty well and whatever i've said is correct. So i don't think i should not say about it.

Thanks for your concern sir. But i never talk about things i don't know about.

Have a nice day

Ho braaaa, 01 Jun 2014There's no such button, grow up Darkgamer.The s5 active has it. So i thought the s4 active would have it too. Sorry for my mistake.

But the s4 active has an aqua mode to disable touchscreen under water. So i was right partially.

For anybody who wants an extraordinary S5, get the golden version along with a black back case. This way when u put on the black case, your phone will have a golden bezzel but will be black. Thankyou. *this can be useful for those who have gotten the golden version and donot really like it!

Another tip guys. Some people are worried that they cannot save more than 3 fingerprints, however you can. For the fingers that you willnot use daily you can use the third slot, in which you can use 2 attempts for each finger. Slot 1 and 2 can be used for the same purpose or for saving fingerprints which will be used a lot. If u sign in 4 fingers in one slot, they willnot be accurately matched everytime but they do work 60 to 70% of the times. Thankyou!

AnonD-245040, 01 Jun 2014Thank you sooo much! I was having a lot of problems signin... moreNo problem. If you want it to work everytime, try signing in the same fingerprint in 2 slots, which will make it 16timescand much more accurate while matching.

Tcool, 01 Jun 2014You seem to know too much. Now try this: 1. Please explain... moreYes, i know the answer to your basic questions. It works with the gloves as there are your hands in the glove and digitalizer uses them to change capacitance. I already said that the digitaliser on s5 is on an overdrive and can sense your hands even if they are some distance away from the screen. Try a plastic hand in the glove. It won't work. Or the hand of a mannequin inside a glove.

ok. inside the water, the whole surface gets touched and the phone can't respond to where it's touched. It's like placing your palm on phone. To my proof, kkep your s5 under a tap when it's on, if water has a pressure on some app or such thing, it'll open up. So the screen may go haywire. to avoid this, samsung has a button that turns off the screen response, or the digitaliser so that the screen doesn't go haywire and do anything wierd.

Any other queries on this matter? and an advice: don't try to look over-smart.

Have a nice sunday

Muba Kanyama, 01 Jun 2014Why my bettery life is too short when using internet?Because your internet network provider signal is poor.
The phone consumes too much power to connect to the network.

how to perform a factory reset if you forgot the pin (not puk block)

1. Please explain how it works when using winter gloves.
Do you mean winter gloves are conductive?

2. Water is a good conductor, how come the S4 Active screen is not responding to screen touch when under water? S4 Active has capacitive touch screen.
