My Samsung s5 has been acting up. I don't know why.. it flickers on low light and it's pretty annoying.. Help!!
Dreamerartworx, 18 Nov 2016isn't that the reason why you keep backups? If these pics are so important, then why don't you... moreIt has nothing to do with your own pics, files, contacts etc.
The issue is to do with the update of the Android OS.
If I had the option again, I would have turned off updates out of the box.
Since the last update, my WiFi keeps dropping out, new contacts just disappear unless I save them to sd card, some important apps (property alarm & cctv) no longer work and the phone is just slow across the board now. I gave up my iPhone for this, and yes, at first it was good but these updates issues have destroyed my faith so I will be returning to iPhone!
I have been an iphone user for a long time. This s5 is my first android phone and i learned from previous iPhones u should never update without doing your research especially on older models. They will never get better.
The old saying still works today "if it aint broke, dont fix it"
Im running 6.0.1 and its working just fine. Sorry to hear everyone's problems.

isn't that the reason why you keep backups? If these pics are so important, then why don't you use dropbox, google drive or Mega to keep backups of all shots.. no need to blame anyone else than yourself for not securing the important files in your phone...
kritta1, 03 Nov 2016My phone restarted itself yesterday and when it opened it was updating and went to a factory r... moreNope you are not the only one. My daughter woke up this morning and everything was gone on her phone. I was told that a factory reset can happen after an update. All her Disney pictures from a lifetime trip. I wished Samsung was there when my daughter cried her eyes out about losing memories like that. I am furious!
The last updare was very bad. My Wifi keeps turning on and off which consumes my battery within 2 hours and hardly recharge fully. :(
I just a update this morning now my phone wont get out of safe mode it keeps resetting and going back in safe mode. Come on samsung im not only a customer im a fan for all samsung products
Samsung you suck. You had a great system before the update; now it's crap. After three years, I'm seriously contemplating a change
Updated my phone last night, now it doesn't work at all. Black screen with pulsating Samsung logo, that's it. what do i do? Took battery, sim cards, and memory, waited awhile put back together still nothing.
Hi wonder if anyone can help me. I have the S5 and am on 6.01 marshmallow after Samsung decided to update my phone when in for repair.it took ages getting used to itm. I have now received notification of a new update. I have read lots of info about people recently updating their S5 and having huge problems. I have put off installing this update until i can find out if it is this update that people are having major issues with.can anyone tell me what this update is called? Just got the notification yesterday. Thank you in advance for any help.
