Samsung is sweetening the pot for people who want to get their hands on the Galaxy S5.

The Korean electronics giant on Monday announced that Galaxy S5 customers will be able to enjoy "free, long-term subscriptions and premium" access to several applications when they pick up their handsets in April. Among the apps included in the "Galaxy Gifts" bundle: 1 year of premium service with personal trainer app Run Keeper, a six-month subscription to The Wall Street Journal, a three-month Premium LinkedIn account, three months of Evernote Premium service, three months of Bitcasa 1TB storage, and several other offers.

In total, Samsung is offering over $500 in subscriptions, freebies, and credits with the Galaxy S5.

Samsung showed off the Galaxy S5 late last month at Mobile World Congress. The handset comes with a 5.1-inch display, a fingerprint scanner, a heart rate sensor, and Android 4.4 KitKat. While the phone doesn't have a radical new look and feel, CNET Review's Jessica Dolcourt said that, so far, the Galaxy S5 is shaping up to be "an excellent device that will keep Samsung at or near the top of the smartphone heap."
