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.

I see that this is a common problem and no methods seem to work, but it definitely happened as soon as the phone got updated. My screen would flicker like crazy on the lowest brightness, whenever I press the home button the screen remains black, but the keys still glow. I have to repeatedly press the power button until the screen is on.
Samsung, get to it
Updated to Marshmallow today and my Galaxy A5 is now locked and won't recognise the pin. I removed the sim card and it keeps on asking for the pin... After many failures it asked for the PUK and now again asks for the pin. I tried 1000times but wont work... I need my phone for my work and after spending 5 hours on nothing Iam thinking of doing 3things: 1. Inform everyone about Samsungs problems. 2. Buy an iphone.
3. Probably go to a layer and see what I can do. I only bought this phone last week and spent 200Â€ on nothing... NEVER AGAIN
Can't believe the repair downloads not available. Phone burns through battery so fast. Too many other problems to mention. Starting to make Apple look good...
After last update run perfect.
A verry big prob with the storage
no apps can be storet in sd cart.
Plesae fix it...or i go for aple!
Jerry80, 23 Jul 2016I want the old music player back. Should I keep wishing or can I make it happen?Keyboard is useless after last update. Totally disappointed. Why isn't a fi, available ( ))) Samsung should be working overtime.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2016Phone worked fine before update. Now just flashes a galaxy 5 sign on and off unless it is plug... more....I only installed the damn thing because it kept getting in the way of my drag screen and now this phone is an absolute piece of crap. Pretty angry about this one if this is just the way it's going to be...me a guy who would never ever go to apple will go to apple
Since last update to Marshmallow, cannot save shortcuts to home screen. Does anyone else have this problem?
This is my first Samsung, a Galaxy s5, 16Gb with 16Gb, after a number of years on Apple.
Updated to the Marshmallow upgrade this morning, 7/30/2016
My phone is now a brick.
"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.

Check to see if your phone is charging via USB. If it is charging, drag the menu down from the top of the screen and select the USB charging options window. You should be able to enable photo file transfer there

Since updating my Galaxy S5 from 5.1 to 6.0.1 I've had nothing but problems. Couldn't send text with picture message. Using keyboard to do any typing would result in it freezing up for minutes at a time. Battery drains faster than before. Would last 3 days before it reached 10% then I'd charge it. Now within 12 hours I'd have to recharge it. And when turning on cell the screen would take longer to go onto home screen. So followed T mobile's advice to use Smart Switch to save all cell items on computer and do factory reset. Now I lost all favorite apps, some important pictures and memos. I swear these MFers do this on purpose to make people purchase new devices. Oh I did fix the sending text with pictures without their help.
really help me.
