    Samsung have a live orchestra at the event playing music.... nice. I wonder how much that will set them back. I am sure they will not miss it but still. I guess they want to make sure their event is remembered as a classy event instead of just walking on the stage with the phone and saying "Here it is, ok bye".

    I'd like to get a better look at the Gear Fit. The band looked like a scrunchee from what I saw.


    *EDIT*

    I was wrong. The strap looks pretty normal. I don't like that it's forced into landscape mode though.... that makes it a bit hard to read without turning your head and/or arm in a weird way.

    As long as there is a way to shut off the Ultra Power Saving feature, that seems like it would be pretty awesome.

    As long as the fingerprint scanner is accurate and doesn't reject all the time, I think that's one of the best security features they've ever released.

    Galaxy S5 is full of nice features, the fitness features really stand out for me.

    If they'll incorporate those features into the Note 4, I'll be happy. Main thing I was impressed by was the Gear Fit. At the right price-point, I may need to invest come April 11th.

    So there is No Metal Body on the S5. Still plastic. I guess they were having a lot of signal problems with it being Metal.
