In this technology age there is always a need for faster processing speeds. A hardware becomes slow after few months when compared with new release of faster once. One way to overcome this is by overclocking the device. Overclocking is the process of basically running the device processor at a frequency above the manufacturer specified rating for the device.
For overclocking the phone settings should be monitored along with the battery life. Overclocking speeds up CPU frequency in order to receive better performance. Overclock operation applied for smartphone like Samsung Galaxy S5 is similar with the one performed on PC or notebook as both will increase CPU frequency.

Samsung Galaxy S5

Overclocking the CPU frequency is an operation that has nothing to do with Android, Google or the phone company. Therefore, before completing this method you have to prepare your device. Overclocking can be done by gaining the root access of Samsung galaxy S5 , installing the custom ROM, run rooted app and overclock the processor.

Overclocking the Samsung galaxy S5 phone requires root access; the user has to add permission to the OS that allow heavy modification and the installation of the custom ROMs which provides root access to the phone, allowing hardware tweaks. Bumping the CPU performance can be performed only if custom kernel is flashed, and for doing such thing you first need to unchain the system of Samsung galaxy phone. Gaining the root access also helps to gain the internal system access of handset where the factory restrictions will be removed and the warranty will get void. Custom ROMs comes with custom kernel that supports overclocking. Power the Samsung galaxy S5 with a custom firmware and overclocking would be enabled. Once overclocking is enabled download one of these apps: SetCPU, No-frills CPU Control install the tool on the phone and run the same. Follow the instructions in order to increase the CPU frequency, reboot . It is important to take the backup of the data saved on the internal storage of the phone before doing overclocking because of the wiping operations done and also to take the backup of the current ROM which can be restored after overclocking.

Overclocking the CPU does ensure higher clock speed and even speedier performance from the Galaxy, but please do ensure that you do not do to the extent that it burns away the CPU, unlike the PC CPU, mobile processors are not build keeping overclocking in mind. Do be weary of trying such hacks as some of the damages cannot be undone if done without proper materials and void your warranty.

Kudos!! Good luck with speed

This time Samsung has made a small change for unlocking their Galaxy S5. Sticker on Samsung Galaxy S5 package shows this change very clearly. We have already seen region lock with Note 3 but this time it is a bit different. Earlier Samsung put a region-lock on the Galaxy Note 3 in a bid to control the activity of grey market importers. Let us take a brief tour of region locking to you. If your device is region locked and you want to use it somewhere else in world then first you will have to use it in region from where you purchased your device. For example, if you purchase a phone in North America and you want to use it in India then you will first have to activate it with North American SIM card. If you want to unlock any region locked device then the best way to do this is to take your device to Samsung and they will unlock it or else you can directly go for specialized online service by paying a small fee.

Samsung Galaxy S5

Earlier, to unlock a region-locked device, you will just have to insert a SIM card into it and activate your device. After that you will have it unlocked. Samsung Galaxy S5 is also region-locked but now if you want to unlock it then you will have to make at least 5 minutes of phone call. This step is taken from Samsung to make it more secure.

Samsung Galaxy S5 has following message on its sticker, “European Model: This product should be activated with a SIM card issued from a mobile operator within Europe (as defined EU/EEA, Switzerland and the following Non-EEA countries Albania, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (F.Y.R.O.M), Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Serbia and Vatican City.) To use SIM cards from other regions, a cumulative call over five minutes must first be made with the SIM card from European operators.”

If you have a region-locked device then you should visit Samsung support and get your device unlocked without any cost. There are also some websites from where you can get your phone unlocked but they will charge you about $25

Now an alleged photo of the box for Samsung Galaxy S5 appeared on internet. Normally we get to see Samsung device features on back side of its box and its the same case with Samsung Galaxy S5.

Chipset in Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a quad-core CPU at 2.5GHz and LTE Cat. 4 with 150Mbps downlink. Earlier models from Samsung has Snapdragon chipset but this time users are expecting Snapdragon 800 8974AC variety that has Krait 400 at 2.46GHz. Galaxy 5 will come with 3 GB of RAM support.

It has 560ppi pixel density and a PenTile Super AMOLED display. So there is no doubt that you will get to see visual improvement over the current 5″ 440ppi screen.


At rear side, there is a 20 megapixel camera but video capture is just 1080p. It was expected that S5 will come with UHD that we get in Galaxy Note 3.

Samsung Galaxy S5 will be the next smartphone from Samsung and it has got many rumors as well. It was in news that Samsung Galaxy S5 will come with Iris scanner but one Korean publication made it clear that S5 will have fingerprint scanner only. According to Korea Herald cites industry sources, Iris scanning technology is not grown up to the level so that it can be deployed. Currently Samsung is testing many kind of biometric sensors which can be used with Samsung Galaxy S5 but there are more chances that Samsung will go with Fingerprint sensor. Iris recognition will be very new for users and there will be risk included in that. Users may not like the new Iris recognition technology.

Samsung device

From a few market sources, it is found that if Samsung choose to use Iris sensor then that will also require a different camera and this camera will be of totally different design. It is simply not possible to implement Iris scan technology with normal phone camera. It will take at least 2 years for the Iris scan technology to be implemented in our devices. According to Korea Herald reports, Korean biometric tech companies have confirmed that they were not supplying Iris scanner to Samsung

It looks like Samsung is working with the fingerprint scanner but if we see the report then it still seems doubtful that Samsung will use this sensor. Fingerprint Cards AB is a Swedish company which develops biometric technology. They have stated that it is combining with global players including some from South Korea. Fingerprint Cards AB makes swipe based sensors which are used in HTC One MAx and also touch based sensors which are used in iPhone 5S. Please comment with your views about this technology.
