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!
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
Tragically, I just had the same experience with my galaxy S5. It updated and then crashed. The screen is totally black except for the blue led notification light. It's the weekend and I can't get another phone until next week. Somebody didn't think this update all the way through...

I'm furious!They started with the previous update, so after losing everything because my phone didn't back up, and a factory reset, here I am with a useless phone! Doesn't help I live 2 hours from a Sprint storem
My Galaxy S5 updated last night and was also REALLY HOT when it got done. After the reboot, the screen doesn't work. I reset the battery and it makes the AT&T sound and the app and return buttons light up but the screen is completely black. Coincidence? May not be according to some of the posts below.

Updated to the Marshmallow upgrade this morning, 8/12/2016
after updated may phone display scatered
now my phone i cannot used it..
"Samsung" pulses on the screen, noting else is happening.
Tried reboot, tried factory reset, tried remove battery, sim and SD cards and reboot, etc, etc.
After sprint pushed the marshmallow update it ruined my Samsung S5 At first the battery was getting very hot. Next it went into boot loop and would not stop. I tried to flash as sprint recommend and it still difficult the problem. I had just finished paying it off to months prior. I feel Sprint should be responsible to replace the phones this has happened to
Thank goodness i cannot update my Samsung s5. I tried 5 times last night but kept failing... after reading all of these comments about Lollipop being so bad i am actually really glad it failed and will keep the phone as it is.
Samsung OS 6.0.1 causing facebook to crash - have to reboot phone to get it going again.
Since the most recent update from AT&T on my Samsung S5 my phone has not been working properly. There has been lots of jumping between screen and difficulty in trying to send a text. The screen keeps jumping to other screens
I used to love my S5. Now, each upgrade gets worse! After this last upgrade my phone has frequently malfunctioned. Sometimes freezing as others cite. I was able to get into WiFi spots like Starbucks or the local library before but after the upgrade cannot get these spots, costing me data. It also grays out my e-mail so I can't pick it up at home. Today it wasn't accepting my pin and left itself unlocked for an hour. If Samsung can't get their act together and produce usable phones and software that doesn't act like malware then it's time to switch to an iPhone. Meanwhile, I won't allow any more upgrades. Just disgusted!
When I buy a product with what I am happy with I don't want forced updates with which I've got to accept. .... Because you got somebody trying to justify there wages in making these up dates it might be good to them but not everybody else.... My S5 was a phone I could manage but it's more like having a IPhone full of restrictions most apps now to work properly I have to pay. ... Samsung are full of.On my next upgrade anybody who reads this may as we'll get a IPhone and tell Samsung where to go...
After updating my s5 I had a big problem with the phone network i can't be connected the my area network what can I do????😔😔😔&#128532;😔

Sometimes there is a flashing and the screen will continue to stay black until I continuously press the home/on button. Over the past day, this seems to be happening more frequently. In addition to this, my entire phone screen will flicker and flash when the brightness is turned completely off. Despite clearing the cache and rebooting, my friend and I have this exact problem.
