Samsung Galaxy S5 big new features

1) It has a heart rate sensor - Samsung is particularly proud that it's the first to put a heart rate sensor into a smartphone.
2) Water and dust resistant - phone while showering or watch videos underwater as Samsung's top execs suggest, we do appreciate the fact that the Galaxy S5 is water and dust resistant.
3) The fingerprint sensor can be used for lots of things - You can use the fingerprint sensor to authorise payments and sign in to apps and services.
4) Kid-friendly mode - We've seen this on Windows Phone already, but it's a great feature and we won't complain.
5) It has a crazy power-saving mode - The screen goes black-and-white only, and all non-essential apps and services are killed, allowing the last 10 percent of your battery to power your phone through an incredible 24 hours. You can remain accessible via calls and text messages, which is what you need most in an emergency.
6) You can combine Wi-Fi and LTE data for insanely fast downloads - The Galaxy S5 supports Category 4 LTE which should work across multiple carriers in multiple countries, as well as Wi-Fi ac.
7) The camera has a 0.3-second autofocus lag - Samsung claims a 0.3-second focus lag, which should eliminate that kind of delay altogether.
8) Brand new UI - Samsung's TouchWiz UI is not everyone's cup of tea. However the Korean electronics giant has made some progress, and the latest iteration of its custom UI has some nice touches that should help ease the pain of Android purists everywhere.
9) It comes bearing gifts - Major app makers including LinkedIn, PayPal, Evernote, Box, and the Wall Street Journal.
10) It has a private mode  - Samsung Galaxy S5 will let you stash photos, videos and files securely so that you don't have to worry about personal information such as IDs and bank documents falling into the wrong hands. Only when you swipe your own finger over the fingerprint reader will they be accessible.

BSNL: A long way to go on Social Media Platform

State run Telecom service provider, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) finally make its presence on Social Media platform like Facebook and Twitter. With one-third of the global population online, recent studies show that about 79% of all telecommunication customers are now relying on social media networks for information regarding products and services. In other words, over half of these costumers are logging on to Facebook, Twitter, Linkedln, etc. to learn more about telecommunication providers and avail services and support from their operator. Telecom companies connected through social networks have ability to build customer/employee relationships though social engagement and access to valuable customer insights generated through social media networks. 
Taking the case of BSNL, we found the BSNL is way behind the other competitors in Indian Market. BSNL has been on Facebook and twitter since long without much activities. BSNL has already missed the train by relying on little known vendors to make its presence on social media instead of believing on more than 2.50 Lakh BSNL employees. @BSNLCorporate: This account is managed by a very small Digital Media Consulting company, Golden Phoenix which came into existence in 2010. There is need to look deep into the performance of Consultancy hired by BSNL to promote its brand on social media. The Official handle  @BSNLCorporate has far less likes than BSNL Kerala, Karnataka units which is created & handled BSNL employees and not by any external agency. Take a look on performance of other telecom service operators on Social Media with Number of likes:
1. Vodafone Zoozoos = 17.5 Million
2. Tata Docomo = 13 Million
3. Aircel India = 6.9 Million
4. Airtel India =  5.3 Million
5. Idea = 5.9 Million
6. MTS India = 1.9 Million
7. BSNL = 1130 Only.
What BSNL Can Do: 
1. BSNL should make honest efforts inline with private players like Airtel, Vodafone, Tata Docomo who provide reasonable quality of support to customers. BSNL can’t afford to waste time and Money with some Digital consultancy.
2. Depute some dedicated Young engineers from BSNL staff to promote and provide support Online on social media for better connection with customers online.
3. Merge Multiple Facebook pages into Single page "BSNL India" for grand impact of Brand and better services. Consider the facebook page @bsnllive3g and @BSNLMobile which have approx. 1 Lakh Likes could help it to reach 6 digit figure in single day.
4. Motivate BSNL staff to Like & Promote the Facebook page as BSNL itself have more than 2.50 Lakh Employees while more than 1 Lakh retired staff. Moreover believe in own strength which is more than 2.50 Lakh Employees.
Hope BSNL Management will take some measure to improve digital presence and explore the power of Social Media. You can Like & Follow BSNL Official page which offers Online customer support and Online Recharge facility.
