The ability to poke around your new phone while keeping your fingers warm isn't turned on by default, but it's simple enough to turn on if you need the feature. Read along and see how you can turn on the increased screen sensitivity mode on your Galaxy S5, and keep your fingers warm in the process.
AT&T's pre-paid GoPhone customers are in for a nice little treat: their monthly data allotments are going up, but their monthly cost is staying the same. Starting April 25th, GoPhone's 2GB $60-a-month plan will be bumped up to 2.5GB, while the $40-for-250MB plan will double to 500MB. Additionally, those on the larger and more expensive plan will gain mobile Wi-Fi hotspot support at no additional charge. And if you happen to be wanting to buy your smartphone from Wal-Mart, GoPhone shoppers there will have the option of a $45 monthly 1GB plan.
OK, folks. Our Galaxy S5 review is out the door, and it's time to end the week with a little fun. Google's released a compelling new camera application. Chrome Remote Desktop means more working from home. And, of course, we'll answer your questions, live, on the air, in living color.
So join us this afternoon at 4 p.m. EDT — that's 9 p.m. in London — for the Greatest Android Podcast in the World! You can find us at this Hangout on Air.
