AnonD-573528, 17 Aug 2016My Samsung Galaxy s5 having issues with Software update, getting hot, and losing a charge, go... moreI'm on my second warrant replace,net...same issues as my original phone. I'm upgrading by week's end!
I'm happy to say the battery drain issue seems to have been resolved, yesterday (21Aug2016) the battery charge life seems to be solved and is better than it was prior to Aug.
I known it's only a day since the correction - therefore, I hope I won't have cause to report anything to the contrary.
Please stop all the updates - are they necessary (unless it is to fix an existing problem).

Sansung S5 - battery charge used to last 4/5 days, in the last week the charge only lasts less than 24hrs.
This will be my last Samsung - too many updates that that create problems
Hi I have a note 4 and my God it's getting hot stop working won't let me pick up when a call come through freezers not good aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh x
Since update my s5 settings keeps crashing message and apps wont open and the pull down bar has all the quick options have gone not happy
New update. Can't log in to many apps, play store wont open. Awful, just awful. Will never buy a samsung again.
My S5 is completely dead (began having issues yesterday am) I tried charging with multiple chargers, bought a new battery and borrowed an external battery. NOTHING. I had 15% left this am so I backed everything up and reset to the Factory Settings. Well, that must have been too much battery usage because that's when it completely died and hasn't turned back on since. Is anyone else having this problem?
Since the update
Very glitchy, screen freezes
But worst of all the speaker has stopped working.....
Cant use speaker phone, cant play video unless i use head phones
And does not ring or give notifations.....
Missing calls and text all the time, now
My Samsung Galaxy s5 having issues with Software update, getting hot, and losing a charge, got from Ausion, sending me a Repalcement, I hope they fix the issue. Stick20
Phones are either IOS (apple) or Android (like samsung or htc). Samsung has nothing to do with updates. It's your service provider or google. If I have problems with my phone, I simply take it to Best Buy and have them do my Android (samsung) update.
I have an AT&T S5 and I'm still disappointed that we haven't even received the marshmallow update yet because from what I heard that they're trying to put in as much bloatware into the updates so that it will make your phone very slow and overheat quickly and will force you to upgrade to the newest phones in their market. The companies have made these updates on purpose to ruin your S5 so that it will make you want to spend money on their newest phones. That's a brilliant idea by them to make more money but at the same time they're not respecting the fact that us Android users still love and want to use the S5 since it's still a powerful phone to use. Your phone companies are the ones to blame too since they're the ones who forced this update into your phone. There's literally no more possible ways to fix the issues on your S5 now guys sorry to say it but now you should know what our companies are doing behind our backs and cheating us of our hard earned money.
Is this the update TO Lollipop that everyone is having problems with or updates to a S5 that ALREADY has Lollipop ?
This sh** update needs sorting out now!!! My phone constantly crashes and I have to restart it at least 10 times a day, it gets red hot, loses battery really quickly, loses signal even with WiFi. Was looking at getting a s7 edge but if this is the problem I'm going to have with every update I'll be looking at a different brand altogether,
Come on Samsung get it fixed.
Goldman1234, 01 Aug 2016....I only installed the damn thing because it kept getting in the way of my drag screen and n... moreI agree I have had samsung now as long as I can remember, since my S5 is the last phone from Samsung I can replace the battery and every update causes me more issues. I may as well get an IPhone instead of an S7.
My S5 (ATT) is constantly prompting me to download an update that is either 206MB or 260MB (don't remember which size). If I turn on WiFi it immediately starts, then I turn off WiFi it stops. Is this the update that everyone is having problems with ?
My galaxy s5 upgraded again last night. It did the same thing last week and I had issues. It told me the sd card wasnt compatable so I rebooted it now it freezes when I turn it on or it just keeps turning itself off again. Not happy with Samsung
After finishing the update, my virtual keyboard got an error which I can't type anymore. Does anyone experience this too?
Samsung, I hate you right now!! You forced my phone to update, now it is moving ridiculously slow, always hot and over heating, I'm beyond frustrated. I took the battery out to reboot the phone and then it wouldn't even turn back on. Tmobile had to help me. I can't get a new phone bc I have a hair line crack in the screen and have to pay for a replacement phone with Jump Insurance. I'm so pissed off!! and no one is fixing this though??
I Updated my phone last night only issue I have is my battery drains faster so I am not very happy I was warned about this and tried to not take the updates but this one was forced that is not right its my property I am pissed off. And my signal is now Poor now please fix this its not right I cannot afford a new phone.
After updating my Samsung Galaxy s5 everything was fine until I tried taking photos with the camera you originally get with the phone. It wouldn't work and said I had to allow permission. So I go into settings click "allow" then it pops up with another box saying I have to turn off overlay in order to allow the permission. And at this stage I'm thinking "Are you kidding me? Another thing I have to do." So I go to turn off overlay in this other setting and you know what? I couldn't even find the actual app in that setting anywhere! So it didn't even have overlay on. I go back to the other setting and it still doesn't work and says the same thing. After mucking around with a bit more, I realize it won't let me change any of the settings on any other apps as well even if I turn off the overlay! I'm so angry! Why can't I manage my apps?! And I never had to do this before either! Grrrr!
