By Kokumo Goodie, Lagos, Nigeria

The world's largest maker of mobile handsets, Samsung Electronics, is partnering with second national operator, Globacom, to offer in-store experiential activity on Galaxy S5 to Globacom’s customers in its flagship chain store, Gloworld.

The Galaxy S5 experiential drive is taking place in several Gloworld stores simultaneously, including the Gloworld shops in Palms Mall, Lekki and Ikeja Mall. 

One of the highlights of the Galaxy S5 Smartphone is the unique ultra-power saving mode that shuts down all of the device's key functions to allow users make the most of their last bit of battery power. According to Samsung, the Galaxy S5 can run for up to 24 hours on a 10 percent battery charge when this mode is activated.

During this in-store activation, premium Samsung accessories will be given to consumers that buy the Galaxy S5 from Gloworld.  In addition, Samsung Professional Consultants will be present at the stores to educate customers on the phone's features and put them through the rudiments in the use of Galaxy S5.

 According to Head of Glo World, Brenda Akhigbe, “the one-day in-store activation which holds on Monday, June 9, is designed to avail Gloworld visitors with a first-hand experience of the Samsung device which is bundled with High Speed Internet service from Globacom.”

“Globacom has bundled a free 1GB data plan, valid for 6 months, with the Samsung Galaxy S5, giving customers a unique opportunity to enjoy instant internet connection from their Samsung Smartphones,” Akhigbe said. Samsung S5 users will also be able to enjoy Globacom’s value-added services such as Glo Total Entertainment which offers interesting videos, movies and TV Serials; and the Family and Friends Finder with which subscribers can accurately  identify the location of friends or family members on a Google map.

The Galaxy S5 also has a new fingerprint scanner, which is integrated with the device’s home button and provides consumers with a safe, biometric screen-locking feature. In addition to this standard phone-locking function, the finger scanner also lets users authorize payments with their unique fingerprint. For fitness enthusiasts, the Galaxy S5 comes with a heart rate sensor that helps monitor heart rate during exercise and fitness routines, using the S-Health service.
