MachoInc, 20 Oct 2015Post again after you have a full battery drain.Battery drain is fixed. Make sure to disable "ANT radio srvice" and ANT+ plugins service". Those two were causing big energy usage.
nasos, 14 Oct 2015Call Samsung and give to them the IMEI to check it out.Go to imei.info, type the IMEI u have and take a look!

Gledis, 16 Oct 2015Hello everybody It's my first time that I'm going to buy a phone, it's my first phone . So my ... moreJust got it but much to my regret this model of SGS5NEO could not log into my email account even I had been on the phone with CYTA the phone vendor FOR 45 MINUTES they could not help me resolve my problem even if we had in parallel both phones set up all details for incoming & outgoing server. My old SGS3 even without sim card was sending & receiving emails BUT the new machine SGS5NEO could not.
So CYTA ask me to take it back to the shop from where I bought it to check it if this is a difective one or if this is the phones disadvantage.
Do not buy!!! I went from iPhone 5s to s5, love love loved the s5 but i found it was too darn slow but an excellent smartphone.
Network recommended s5neo instead as it was newer and improved. It's basically the toy version of the s5. I HATE it. My "brand new" neo constantly tells me to check the back cover at all times, (randomly flashes up even though the backs on correctly) would say my memory card has been unmounted for no reason. its just horrid. Many features from the s5 have been removed. If you are an avid samsung user, especially if you have the s5 you will definitely spot the differences. As I said before I had the s5 for about 10 days and could spot that I wasn't feeling the "improved" neo about 30mins in using it... Had the neo got about 10days also but have sent back. Going to go back to the s5!!!
Hello everybody It's my first time that I'm going to buy a phone, it's my first phone . So my question is : Should I buy SGS5Neo or not? do YOU rwcommend it For me?
mile, 11 Oct 2015Does it have multi window support? Yes Sure, i had chance to test it
I picked up the S5 neo in the local EE shop when I upgraded at the weekend. It's what they were touting at the time.
I've always had HTC previously.
The S5 Neo seems ok. I'm not a feature buff but already miss the Infrared interface (for tv remote etc.). I never thought to check the spec. I assumed that in this day and age...
I took it for granted that the S5 Neo would integrate with my car via BlueTooth. My old HTC read out text messages when in car mode. I should have checked the spec. No hands free/car mode on the S5 Neo? In this day and age?
I've tried numerous third part apps but none of them deliver as hoped. Even the paid for apps.
I can only hope that Samsung reinstate such a basic feature in any future firmware upgrade. I suspect I'll be back on HTC before that happens :(
Caution: this expensive device will get only one mayor update android 6. After that no New androids. Who bought it no right to cry for updates.

Will see tonight. I had switched off every single feature and preinstaled bloatware I don't need. So I didin't expected such a massive battery power loss over night. My ex S4 mini used to drop no more than 10% over night, with wifi and sync on.
Speaking about OS: Lolipop compared to Kitkat is such a disaster...

After you get all the initial updates for your apps make sure and reboot your phone. Especially the Google services can get hung up and keep your phone awake. After that you should have good batter life. Last night when I put my phone on the charger before bed it had been awake for 40 hours with 5 hours of screen on time. That included about 6 hours of listening to podcasts and an hour of phone calls. I would also recommend turning off Download booster under More connection settings. This will use your data plan while connected to wifi, but also using the radio which drains more battery when downloading things. Hope that helps.
Bought it yesterday. Battery dropped a little worrying ~30% of juices over night. Sync and wifi were on, but everything else switched off. Maybe I've missed something in the settings, maybe battery will get better after some charging cycles.. Hope so.
