10 Things You’ll Definitely Want to Know How to Do on Your Galaxy S5
So you’ve had your Samsung Galaxy S5 for a few months now, and you think you’ve figured out everything there is to know about it. Well, prepare to have that thought blown to pieces, friend, because there are likely a few things your phone can do that you never even realized.
If you want to get more out of your S5, or just want to see what else Samsung’s flagship can do, you’re in the right place. These are the 10 things you might not have known you can do with your Galaxy S5, but will definitely want to:
1. Pay for things with your fingerprint.
Like Apple’s iPhone 5s, Samsung equipped the Galaxy S5 with a built-in fingerprint scanner. But unlike the iPhone, the S5’s scanner can be used with PayPal to make paying for things online worlds easier. Instead of constantly entering your PayPal account information, you can swipe your finger and be done in a few seconds.
Before you can use the scanner with PayPal, though, you’ll have to set it up. To do that, navigate to the Settings menu by pulling down the Notifications Drawer and tapping the gear icon in the top-right corner of the screen.
Swipe down to the Personalization section and select Finger Scanner. Then tap the Fingerprint manager option and read and agree to the disclaimer.
Swipe the finger you want to register across the S5’s home button eight times and set a backup password. If you want to use your fingerprint as your S5’s screen lock, you can tap OK on the next screen or press Cancel to proceed to set up your PayPal account.
Press the Pay with PayPal button on the Finger Scanner and select Link on the next screen to pair your PayPal account with your fingerprint. On the next screen, tap Link Fingerprint if you have a PayPal account or Sign Up for PayPal if you don’t have one.
