Samsung Galaxy S5 – Fingerprint sensor

Well Samsung seems to make this as an USP. They have done a lot of work of fingerprint scanning throughout the operating system. The user can register 8 fingerprints and can also assign each fingerprint to do a particular task. I think that this will give a tremendous boost in the User Experience of the phone.
