Samsung introduced the new Galaxy S5 smartphone at its Unpacked event in Barcelona during Mobile World Congress (MWC), promising a handset that will be its most “mesmerizing” and connected yet. With a similar, though more refined design, the S5 appears to take some of its design and functional cues from the previous two devices, but Samsung seems to also want to make sure consumers understand that the focus is a little bigger with this one.

You probably handle your phone more times than you can count in any given day, and it may not surprise you to know that germs are an inevitable consequence. Corning, the company who makes Gorilla Glass, is aiming to offer a new antimicrobial version of the glass this year that will help make your phone stay cleaner.
