Useful book for anyone who owns a Galaxy S5 and, like me, isn't sure how to get the best from it or even what it offers in terms of advance functionality. The guide will help get you started from the most basic level (making and receiving calls, setting up your email account and creating contacts etc.,) through to more complicated technology such as using S-Voice, mobile office applications, file sharing and getting the best from the camera.

At approx. 352 pages the book isn't over long, just enough without pages of unnecessary padding, and is set out in uncomplicated, bite size chunks with a very concise index. A wide variety of small hints and tips back up the main feature.

Simple to work through and written in layman's terms making it more accessible to non-techie's like me.

Happy to recommend to those new to this particular model of phone.

This is another beneficial Dummies title for those people who got a new Samsung Galaxy S5, and either have very little idea or want to know how to get the very best from their new smart phone.
The does not assume any fore knowledge of the topic at hand. There the step by step process of set up the phone just the way you want it. It enables the user to from ‘A to B’ in terms of usage from the basic abilities. To being able to sync up with your WIFI printer through to more convoluted technology such as using Air Browse, S Health app, Activity tracker, mobile office apps, plus using the rather good camera/videoing capabilities.

This is a book that you can take at your own pace and zero in on the matters of most relevance to you. You are able to dip into as and when required. You take this guide at your own pace. This book contains a good selection of the best hints and tips to squeeze as much as you can from the phone.

As with all Dummies titles the simple ethos is to give the reader a simple frame work with layperson terms to work through and making the text and the information as reader friendly as it can.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 is, for me anyway a complex smart phone, and this title helps me to utilize its potential and not feel intimidated, hence a recommended Dummies edition that delivers.

If you are someone look at your smartphone with a mix of wonder and befuddlement, knowing you are only aware of only the basics of what it can do for you, this is the book for you if you have a Samsung Galaxy.

The capabilities of this smartphone are fantastic and this Dummies book is an excellent way to get to grips with all of it's functions. The book is clearly laid out with plenty of colourful illustrations and concise, lively, easy to follow text with the usual, indispensable 'tips' thrown in regularly, which are a great feature of the Dummies series.

Can't go wrong with this guide if you have an S5 to be honest, as even seasoned Galaxy users will find something in here that the phone is capable of that they hadn't realised.

A very good introduction for the use of this phone. It is clearly set out in a no-nonsense approach, covering teh basics and some very useful tips about what one can do further with the device. Although one is invited to dip in as and where it appeals to you, it is probably best to read it through. As with so many in the 'Dmmies' series, it is an enjoyable as well as an instructive read.

To be fair the Android operating system is fairly intuitive, and with a bit of experimentation it's possible to figure your way around things without the use of a guide like this one. However, quite a lot of people (including some friends of mine) wouldn't dream of using a gadget such as a smartphone without some decent guidance to point them in the right direction, which is where this Dummies guide comes into its own.

I am familiar with using Android phones and tablets but was interested to see just how much extra I could learn from this book, and would it be something that I could recommend to my friends? It does deal with a lot of the basic stuff which will only really be useful to absolute beginners, but it does present it well and anyone who has used a Dummies guide before will know that it is written to be easily understood but without being condescending.

To be fair I have learned more than I thought I would and I can now make use of some features that I'd ignored before, so even more experienced users can learn something from it. However, the guide's prime target is those people who are new to Android or new to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and it does a very good job of helping them, and making sense of those things which at first look impossible. If you have a GS5 in your hand and can't make the most of it then you could do a lot worse that read this book.
