First of all, in the jargon, the ending “brick” (literally brick) is used in a figurative sense to mean a device unusable if not, indeed, as a brick. When wrong executing an operation of a terminal flash. For example, this may become unusable, and then it is called as “brickato”; on Samsung Galaxy S5 there is a switch that can “brickare.”

This, of course, will be activated remotely on Galaxy S5 in case of theft; not only is it a useful tool for the protection of personal data, but it reveals a great insult to the thief (or who unduly if it is appropriate) not to use it. According to the findings in a report from ZDNet Korea , the same possibility is also on Galaxy Note 3. terminal, after the deletion of data, will shut down and will no longer be usable.

Unfortunately we can not tell you, if found, if there is the possibility of “back to life” or not. Fortunately, not only the top of the range Samsung will have this new feature, but also other manufacturers, such as LG, implement this method to make the terminal unusable subtracted. The “kill switch” may be present on all the next top of the line, what do you think?
