Samsung Galaxy S5 - The Perfect Smartphone for My Paranoia

Samsung Galaxy S5 - The Perfect Smartphone for My Paranoia

Hi, my name is Angeline Rodriguez and I am paranoid.

I'm the type of girl who brings her phone with her to the bathroom because she thinks her friends will Tweet-rape or Facebook-rape her if she leaves it on the table, who actually screams when someone so much as touches her phone, and who cannot concentrate the minute her phone's battery life turns red.

I have my reasons behind all of these things, but let's not get into that. Let's get into how the Samsung Galaxy S5 caters to all of my paranoid needs instead (as well as some of my other needs, but mostly my paranoid ones).

It's all about the wallpaper. :p

Samsung Galaxy S5 Fingerprint Scanner and Power Saving Mode

My fellow paranoid netizens will be super happy to hear that the Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with a Fingerprint Scanner and Power Saving Mode.

The Fingerprint Scanner

I think I may have brought this upon myself for being such a pro-tweet-raper and phone-password-guesser, but most of my friends try to exact their revenge on me by tweet-raping me in return when I least expect it. And I hate it. It's also a pet peeve of mine when people go through my photos and text messages without my consent.

Thanks to the fingerprint scanner of the Samsung Galaxy S5, though, I no longer have to worry about things like that. :)

No match, bitch!

I don't have to worry about forgetting my password after changing it for the umpteenth time to prevent those things, either. Just a swipe of my finger (well, thumb, really) and BOOM. I'm in.

If the phone recognises the fingerprint, it will let you use the phone right away. Easy peasy! :)

I have to admit that it can be quite hard to get the fingerprint scanner to work after having had a few shots of booze (lack of finger coordination when inebriated, perhaps?), but that's fine.

This happens more often than I'd like to admit. :p

Coz there's always the alternative password to use at times like that. And I only turn that function on after I fail the fingerprint scanner, so my friends can't just guess my password and use it against me anytime. :p

The Power Saving Mode

As mentioned earlier, I am also that type of girl who cannot concentrate the minute her phone's battery life turns red. Unfortunately, this happens quite a lot. Yes, I know I should use a powerbank, but forgetful-me always tends to forget to charge her powerbank more often than not and so I tend to end up with a dying phone more often than not, as well. :(

When that happens, you'll see me checking how much battery I have left every 5 seconds; leaving a party earlier than usual in order to get home and charge; or pestering every stranger near me, asking if they have a charger that I can borrow. Yes, I'm that kind of girl.

Booyah! Even my phone is a superhero now!

Fortunately, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has this super awesome power saving mode for me to use once the battery is running low. All I have to do is turn it on and my Samsung Galaxy S5 will go into greyscale with my must-use apps of choice to conserve as much battery power as possible.

The best part? The battery can last you for days, even if you end up with 15% battery by 2pm. Awesomesauce!

How Samsung Galaxy S5 is Best Maximized with Globe

Of course, my Samsung Galaxy S5 wouldn't be as awesome as it is if I didn't maximise it with a Globe postpaid plan. Just FYI, Globe has been my service provider for more than a decade now. Pure love. <3

Free 1-Month Gadget Care

The Globe postpaid plan of my Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with free gadget care of a month, and this comes with complete mobile phone protection against theft and accidental damage plus coverage of up to Php10,000 bill protect. I've had two phones stolen from me in the past, so this sounded a-okay to me.

Flexible and Fully Customizable Postpaid Plans

Did I mention that Globe's postpaid plans are completely flexible and customisable now, as well? You actually have the option to get the Samsung Galaxy S5 for as low as Php1,699 a month at Globe mySUPERPLAN or Php1,599 with Php16,800 cash out a year with the Galaxy Forever Plan, which you can use to get the newest Galaxy smartphone every year!

Charge App Purchases to Bill

Since I'm an app whore, I also love downloading all sorts of different apps from the Samsung App Store. Well, I can now charge my Samsung App Store downloads to my Globe postpaid bill, which makes my life so much easier. No more worrying about not having a credit card to charge it to!

Largest 4G Network

Of course, I get to enjoy super fast mobile Internet connectivity with Globe's 4G network and growing LTE footprint, as well. That's not all, either.

Free 6-Month Subscription to Spotify Premium

Last but not least, I get to enjoy a free 6-month subscription to Spotify Premium… something that deserves a blog post all on its own. <3 Wait for it!
