Galaxy S5 APKs Bring Samsung’s Latest Apps To Older Devices [Download]


Want a taster of the Galaxy S5 on your existing Samsung smartphone? Of course you do.

And you can — thanks to a bunch of leaked Galaxy S5 app APKs that have been made available to download by “Albe95” of XDA Developers. The latest versions of S Note, WatchON, Gear Manager, S Translator, and more are present — and you can get them all right here.

Before you rush off to download them, there are some things to bear in mind. First, you’re going to need a Samsung Galaxy device to use these apps, and there’s no guarantee they’ll work — particularly if you have an older handset. Most of them should work on more recent devices like the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3 — except for S Health, which won’t work at all, for some reason.

In addition to this, there’s a possibility that in order to get these apps working, you’ll have to uninstall your current version of the app, which will require root access.

This isn’t going to be the case for everyone — I was able to install and run them all without removing the old versions — so go ahead and give them a try if you’re interested. Just don’t be too disappointed if they don’t all work for you.

You’ll find the download links for S Note, WatchON, Galaxy Gear Manager, Gear Fit Manager, S Health, S Translator, and Samsung’s brand new Calculator app below. You can either download them directly to your device or download them to your PC and transfer them — then install them just like regular APK files.
