harambe , 16 Aug 2016does it have the thumb censor? No, the S5 Neo does not have a fingerprint sensor/scanner.
billben, 15 Aug 2016thanks for reply, but if it has been out since 29.04.2016. how come my phone did not update, ... moreYour best bet is to contact Tesco Mobile direct and ask them if and when they plan to release Marshmallow for the S5 Neo.
thanks for reply, but if it has been out since 29.04.2016. how come my phone did not update, any info would be helpful, I got my s5 neo from Tesco if that helps
billben, 14 Aug 2016can anyone recommend a good case for s5 neo, just got R just case it looks great but you lose ... moreDifferent countries and service providers may publish the Marshmallow version in different time. For example the UK O2 version 6.0.1 is available from 29.04.2016. You may download and install manually from: https://samsung-firmware.org/model/SM-G903F/

I just use one of those S-Line silicone cases (and have done for years for all of my phones). They're cheap and offer very good protection for what they cost. And I have never had any damaged done to any of my phones while they were wearing one of them, and I work in the construction industry.
can anyone recommend a good case for s5 neo, just got R just case it looks great but you lose signal with all that steel around your phone, It is a really good phone I got my phone 4 months no problems like ones on here, DOES ANYONE KNOW WHEN O2 ARE GOING MARSHMALLOW
I have had the s5 neo for approx 5 months, it freezes/lags/ gallery stops. Worse phone I have ever had on contract. Have had a few samsung phones which were fine.
Things seem to be getting worse the longer I use this phone. Lots of locking up/freezing for short periods of time while doing basic things, such as browsing the web (using any browser) or moving around the interface. I've never experienced anything like this before on any of the phones I've owned over the years, it's quite embarrassing to have to go through this, especially when out in public and at a time when you actually really need the phone.

Ive had this phone 4 weeks. It was going fine, until I changed the screenlock from letters/numbers (which was getting too time consuming every time) to a 4 digit pin..Im now locked out of the phone and the only way I can get back in is to factory reset, which means I wipe all the photos. I really dont want to do this! I talked to samsung they say I must have entered two different pins when I was resetting the screenlock to a pin, I said why didnt it alert me that the two pins were different if this was the case? Personally I think it might be technical issue, as I know I put in two same pins, and besides, the screen was playing up (first time) just a few hours earlier, like jumping about so I couldnt use it. My advise is to read other reviews for this phone before purchasing. I did this and found a few people had experienced problems. I kinda wish Id heeded their warnings now..
donny, 11 Aug 2016why not?Considering it is a £200 phone (same price that my LG L90 405 was back in 2014), it can be slow and lag quite often, even when just browsing through the phones interface or moving between basic apps. Things get much worst when running more demanding apps (not games) and transitioning between those. Battery life is reasonably good (a possible two days with light internet and GPS usage), but does not come close to my two year old LG L90's four days (even with original battery) with similar usage.
So basically (for me) it has been more of a downgrade when comparing those two phones.
dude i'm having this phone from since it was released and I am so satisfied about it. Battery is good it lasts ~ 2 days with medium usage ( wifi + 4g connections are always open). The memory is enough for most apps ( no lags). So i will recommend you this phone.
