Galaxy S5 will come with a boat load of free goodies, says Samsung

Just in case the Samsung Galaxy S5 isn’t sweet enough on its own, Samsung is adding some extra sugar in the form of a "Galaxy Gifts" bundle of subscriptions, premium apps and more.

It includes a year’s premium subscription to the fitness apps RunKeeper and Lark and six months with the similar Skimble and Map My Fitness, six months of The Wall Street Journal and three months of Businessweek+, three month premium subscriptions to LinkedIn and Evernote, and three months of massive 1TB storage with Bitcasa.

It also hahs special offers from select stores when you use Paypal, a free download of the to-do app EasilyDo Pro, $10 (about £6, AU$11) of Cut the Rope 2 credits, a six-month, 50GB subscription to the online storage service Box, and more.

Getting better all the time

All told Samsung says the Galaxy S5 bundle is worth $500 (about £300, AU$560).

The Galaxy Gifts bundle will be included with every Galaxy S5 purchase when the phone launches in April.

With a 5.1-inch full HD display, a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, a 16-megapixel camera, and a fingerprint scanner, the Galaxy S5 is not a gargantuan step up from its predecessor, but carries enough welcome improvements that it will no doubt sell like gangbusters come April.
