Galaxy S5 Wallpapers

Let’s start it out simply: just change the wallpaper on your Android home and lock screen to resemble a Galaxy S5. This app includes a collection of wallpapers that came preloaded onto the Samsung Galaxy S5, it’s up to you to choose the one you like the best.

Galaxy S5 FingerPrint Lock

What would the S5 be without a fingerprint scanner? To be able to fool everyone, there are a ton of apps that will scan your fingerprint regardless of the smartphone you have. You need to realize that this is a total fake of course. This will also remove a secure locking method from your lock screen.

Galaxy S5 Experience

The Galaxy S5 Experience app allows you to test out some of the S5 characteristics on your own Android device. Though not everything is included here, it’s still cool to check out!

Galaxy Launcher (TouchWiz)

Probably the best way to simulate a Samsung Galaxy S5 on any smartphone is to install the TouchWiz user interface launcher that comes on the Galaxy S5. You don’t even need to root your device, plus the launcher has a lot of customization options.

Galaxy S5 ringtones

Visuals isn’t only what counts, sound is just as important. Give your Android device a well rounded Galaxy S5 feel by installing ringtones that are typical of the new Samsung flagship. This app has a huge database of sounds to choose from.
