We know that an average handset is not at all indicated for multitasking, but if you are the owner of a Samsung Galaxy S5 model, be sure that there is no reason to be worried about. The Galaxy S5′s 5.1-inch, 1080p display is big and crisp, so you can do more than one thing at a time by enabling the Multi Window Mode. Thanks to this special mode, you can easily complete multiple tasks on one screen (just as you can see that its name describes).

For example, feel free to take notes while watching a video, or search the web and check your email messages at the same time; don’t hesitate to see two different apps on screen at once and even transfer data between them and not only.
