How can I control Galaxy S5 using physical gestures instead of just touch or voice?

Air Gestures let you control your mobile device by making specific movements with your hand above the proximity and gesture sensors.

 

The proximity and gesture sensors are in the top-right corner above the screen. When air gestures are available, a hand icon will appear at the top of your screen.

 

The sensors recognise gestures when you make smooth, steady movements up to three inches above the sensors.
