Samsung Galaxy Note 4’s sensor with S Health app can save your life


The title may be sounding a bit strange but it is certainly a true story. Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is unrolling a feature that could possibly protect your life. The sensor present in Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be able to calculate the UV radiation and aware the users about potential damage to their skin. This feature has been extended from the full body and fitness solutions by Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

Samsung Galaxy S5 has sported the S Health feature that manages the stress levels, heart rate and other fitness related aspects. However, nothing of the UV measurement sort was seen in Galaxy S5. It is a revolutionary app that will definitely impact the fortunes of Note 4 in the market as well.

The new feature of Galaxy Note 4 is being promoted heavily and some of the Samsung rivals feel that it is just a publicity stunt and exaggerated to its extreme. However, the report issued by Samsung indicates that the life saving feature will actually enable the users to evade sunburn, premature skin aging and it may also help eliminate the case of skin cancer.

The sensor is expected to be part of the S Health phenomenon started by the South Korean phone maker. In order to measure the radiations, the user will have to keep the phone at 60 degree angle to the sun while keeping the sensor towards the back side of the device.

  • Generously apply broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen every 2 hours, even on cloudy days, and after swimming or sweating.
