mina, 17 Feb 2015please i need an advice from some one used these phones , which is better samsung s5 or sony x... moreYeah, I'd choose the S5 over the Xperia. I've got the S5 and it hasn't failed me yet.
boko, 16 Feb 2015Please help guys : why does the smart pause doesnt work with youtube and works only with the i... moreBecause it's a feature from Samsung, not from google (which makes youtube app). Google would need to use Samsung API's for it to work (or Samsung would need to make a special version of youtube and keep it updated..)
please i need an advice from some one used these phones , which is better samsung s5 or sony xperia z2
Please help guys : why does the smart pause doesnt work with youtube and works only with the internal video player. This is so annoying ... Cheers !
jeorge, 16 Feb 2015The password is right. It open but it says failed to open try again..Music, private mode... I think you really need some factory reset.
Be sure to try them first after that, before installing any apps from google play.
brad666, 16 Feb 2015i believe wrong password/pin/patternThe password is right. It open but it says failed to open try again..

mario polo, 16 Feb 2015Donít buy Samsung. Donít buy any Samsung product. They are all poor whether they are high end ... moreWhat happened to you is unfortunate, that's for sure.
But the problem is that i can replay "S5" in your text with any other phone.
Without disrespect, i've already got those kinds of story around me, because it's the way it is nowadays for most of all phones (excepted Apple).
I advised my cousin to buy a Xperia T 2 years ago when it was just out.. I won't tell the story, but he had to go through repair service like 3 or 4 times before finally giving up.
Same for a LG Nexus 4 of my neighbor.
Same for my buddy with its Xperia X8 4 years ago.
Same for a colleague 2 years ago with a S4...
Same for my girlfriend with her iphone 4 2 years ago (warranty had just expired).
The list can go on.
So you got disappointed but you have to tell yourself that it was only bad luck for it and don't make a general case for Samsung devices.
And as O-J said, your battery getting depleted half of a day is not normal. Check even gsmarena's blog to confirm that you are having personal troubles. S5 is in front of all current flagships when it's battery related.
Anonymous, 16 Feb 2015I regret buying this phone. That's the bottom line.
It offers little change IMO over my previ... moreMy friend I too had an S2 which I recently sold. I liked the S2 in so many ways. It was clearly the best phone I ever owned compared to my previous phones and it was ahead of it's time as most other companies just played catch up to the S2.
Where the charging port is concerned, I won't complain about that because my Nokia E73 had a USB cover flap as well which I had to open every time to charge or to connect the phone to a PC. So this is not a first for me.
As much as I enjoyed my S2 I would have to say the S5 is a nice upgrade for me. First of all the battery stands out. It lasts much longer and charges much quicker. My S2 usually took 3 hours to charge (0-100%) while the S5 only takes 1 hour 55 minutes (0-100%). You said your battery runs down quickly, do you have your sensors turned on (air view, smart stay, smart pause etc.)...one day I turned on all of my sensors and the battery depleted fairly quickly. Ensure they are all turned off.
However, I think the S2 took smoother photos in general and the display seemed a tab bit better (mainly more satured colours) due to the RGB Matrix the S2 sported. The longer lasting battery and quicker charge is enough for me to consider the S5 a good upgrade.
I regret buying this phone. That's the bottom line.
It offers little change IMO over my previous S2 in terms of innovation. This may be a good thing (if it ain't broken, don't fix it), however: The battery life sucks (it turns off mid day without me interacting with it too much), I don't feel it is more responsive than my S2 (which I loved by the way), and the water protection, while sounding cool is annoying: opening the lower lid to charge is annoying. If I ever go to the swimming pool, I can just put my phone in a plastic bag...
It is loaded with samsung bloatware, as usual.
