[deleted post]Dude fix your phone. My Neo works fantastic and experiences none of the troubles you are having. Maybe get some of your 16 gigs back my expanding memory with a card a removing media from the drive. Otherwise take it in and get it fixed. It's no s7 but mine and everyone I've talked to really enjoys this $0 phone.
Sure beats up my iphone5😉
[deleted post]Unfortunately there was a fake Samsung Galaxy S5 phone from Chinese company Goophone. You may Google for "Fake Samsung Galaxy S5".
The Goophone company has fake versions of many Samsung phones including Galaxy S7 (also iPhone). Not sure if there is a fake Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo, however on eBay there were many such cases of selling fake Samsung phones. Be careful!
In case your phone is purchased from legitimate Samsung reseller you may ask them or Samsung support for your country to replace your phone.
FYI, camera app at Galaxy S5 Neo launches immediately from the screen saver with a slip of the camera button. I would suggest you to use pattern screen lock and SmartLock (Trusted Places, like home).
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2016I jave played modern combat 5 on my s5 neo that i have had for 5 months now. Works perfectly f... moreThe Galaxy S5 neo is an absolute joke of a phone, it's an awfully slow laggy cheap cut down version of the S5. I ended up with one for my work phone, and the frustration it brings to me on a day to day basis is unbearable.
I find that I have to reboot the phone at least once or twice a day to even make it usable. The response time when you try to open a app is totally unacceptable. Just doing something simple as unlocking the phone with the pin can be an utter headache, IÂ’m having to put the pin in multiple times and then the screen times out and switches of during the process.
Double tapping the home button which launches the camera app, can take between 5-10 secs to open.
What a pathetic heap of junk this phone is. I use a Galaxy s6 edge as my personal phone which is utterly amazing to use, it runs as slick and as fluid as the day I got it over a year ago.
So going between these two devices during the day is incredibly frustrating, and I find I end up using my personal phone for work because it does thing so much faster.

Nevermind. After checking this site http://updato.com/firmware-arc...select-model looks like I'll be fine...just gotta wait for my phone to get here :)

Dang, one of the reasons I just bought a neo was that it had marshmallow confirmed where the ZTE Axon hasn't got the update yet, and it doesn't have much(or no) root support.
Might as well just go ahead and install nougat while I'm at it....was hoping to hold off on that....
kkaj, 21 Aug 2016Thanks for the reply, does it require rooting or is it an official release? Also, I am also cu... moreIt seems that most of the s5neo's to get the marshmallow update so far have been those supplied via a network operator ie Vodafone.
If you have an unbranded s5neo then marshmallow hasn't been released yet so no update available yet.
Once all the network operators have been handsets have been updated then fingers crossed we might get the update.

Also, I am also curious why didn't my phone find the update. If you have any idea, I would very much appriciate your help.
me007, 19 Aug 2016Just compare their technical specifications:
http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3?idPhone1=56... moreThe iPhone 5s has iOS which means it's doesn't need to be as powerful hardware wise. My S5 doesn't seem to be any better in performance than my 5C I gave my wife. Even my old 4s is less leggy than the S5.
Android memory management has always been awful in my experience so that needs factored in.
Got my first s5 neo a week ago. Headphone port didn't work & my back button & task manager button would be unresponsive intermediately. Took it back to koodo & got a new one. The headphone port works but I'm still having the same problems with my back & task manager keys & it seems to be coming more frequent as time passes.
https://samsung-firmware.org/model/SM-G903F/ just want money, I know people that have tried with odin and bricked there phone, But I know that odin does work, it says that if you have not used odin then don't use for beginners as you could brick your phone, I have read instructions but I do not understand some of the them so I will wait for OTA, But thanks for advice
yaks, 19 Aug 2016yes its has fingerprint sensor, s5 samsung. No, the S5 Neo does not have a fingerprint sensor/scanner.
Can i use battery of samsung s5 on my samsung s5 neo?? Will it work without problems??

There are different versions for different countries and service providers.
six months ago I spent 3 weeks looking at phones on the net for best price and specs, S5 NEO was the best for the money and it said that there was going to be a update to 6.1, I think this phone is great. BUT NO UPDATE YET
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2016Should I get this or iPhone 5s?Just compare their technical specifications:
Apple iPhone 5s has 1GB RAM (against 2GB Galaxy S5 Neo), 4" 640 x 1136 LED display (against 5.1" Full HD Super AMOLED), announced September 2013 (against August 2015), CPU Dual-core 1.3 GHz Cyclone (ARM v8-based) against Octa-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53, NO micro SD slot (against microSD up to 256 GB for Samsung), No NFC (Samsung Yes), No FM Radio (Samsung Yes), less talk/play time than Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo.
I don't see any technical advantage of iPhone 5S...
I have used this fantastic cellphone for six months. I'm really happy with my Phone.I recived Android 6 at first day . I've Played Modern combat 4 and 5 also Asphalt 8 . IT plays those heavy games like piece of cake . It works as well as s6 und s7 but just with different Name and nice Price. There are negative comments below. But it is not acceptable because their device has Problem not all. Also they can use Garantie if they don't use Smuggled phone.
