Not complete crap. Still yet, it's a problem only I noticed only after having updated my S5 yesterday. The Screen Mirroring is working. The phone will not connect to the device attached to my tv via Screen Mirroring from the Galaxy S5. But the device connected to my tv will recognize my S5 via the phones wifi direct option. As I was attempting to troubleshoot my external device thinkinhg that it may have been the problem I noticed that not only is the device being recognized by name on my phone, but I was also able to reconfigure the device wirelessly and without bluetooth being enabled. Both the phone itself and the device recognize each other and communicate with each other. As the tv reads that they are attempting to connect as well as does the phone. There is just shown to be a failure without a full connection between the two. Ahain, not a major pobkem for myself. But a noticed problem.
After updating my phone to update G900VVRU2DPD1 a few days ago (don't know if this has anything to do with it or not), yesterday my phone started displaying that the SD card was not supported. I tried powering my phone off and back off but still got the same message. My SD card is a SanDisk 32 gig.
I went by and picked up a new sd card and the new card works in the phone (for now any way). I put my original sd card in an adapter and put it into an USB port on my computer. The computer was not able to read the sd card.
Of course, all my photos were stored on the sd card "for safe keeping". What could have happened to the sd card? It's only about 1 1/2 years old.
Is there any way to recover the data from the sd card?
Can't send multiple texts and my contacts are mixed since last updates.
this latest update is a joke deleted data I had saved on my memory card and none of my apps work, better get fixed soon and I'll be making a complaint about my lost data pictures and videos of my children.
What the hell samsung.... people had better be working 24 /7 to put this right. My phone has been crashing for days.
Since the update I m having nothing but problems burns thorough the battery, screren wont light up when you open the phone, the s screen is all screwed up giving full screen and unable to turn the alarm off, 1/3 of my apps come back dark including Kindel reader had to reload each one by myself including the preloaded ones DID ANYONE RUN TEST ON THIS BEFORE RELEASING IT, wi-fi keeps shutting down on it own every dam time I open the phone I have to turn the wi-fi back on in settings, I think that if i had to call 911 in an emergency I don't think I would when screen goes all screwy. This is what I paid good money one year ago $400.00 of CRAP i-phone Next time tried of this my last samsung Galaxy Nexus was same dam thing when THEY wanted to UP Grade!!@!!!!
My phone after update it came up too many problem,the recommended apps was off and i cannot easy to on the wifi or data,if i want on or off the data or wifi i must go to setting first ,it waste my time
Thanks for not even bothering to test out your clownish update.! You set it up to be such a reoccurring pain in the ass to not accept the update - then it fouls up my phone to where my old Bionic does circles around your stuff. When was the last vitally important critical update? About 2 months ago? Probably just an NSA backdoor. Before I leave Android, you should do the decent thing and let people NOT UPDATE!
I'll have to bear in mind from here on out that an "Android update" is actually more akin to getting virused.
Am now NOT going anymore Android - Apple for me from here on out.!
My phone is now inoperable. This is costing me business. I'm making legal enquiries.
Updated a a day ago, horrible response time on everything.everything . phone worked 100 fine without this garbage update. It has delayed all my text and screen sensitivity. Causing me to be extremely frustrated which resulted in me squeezing my phone until the screen cracked. You should be ashamed of yourself Samsung. People relay on these devices more than ever and you basic bent us over on this one. It's terrible and you should feel terrible.
I have a Samsung 5S. I'm so unhappy with it. It's never worked right. Takes too long to do anything. On top of that when I did the software update it started to freeze. I keep having to shut it off. Can someone tell me if I can undo the update?
Updated my S5 this morning and it activated a new security login that I didn't have active on the phone! Now it's locked up on me. Anyone have ideas how to get past the lock screen?
After last update my Galaxy S5 after fingerprint check wants a new password and then back to screen one. Can't get in.
Updated S5 to Android 6 Marshmallow and Knox has stopped working.
Can not get past start up licence screens in to knox environment
I updated and now I have this weird overlay screen that won't go away. It mirrors whatever the screen shows in miniature. Annoying.
Updated S5 the other day. It has merged my contacts linking names and numbers in random fashion so I have no idea where the contact exists. You don't know there is a problem till you go to call someone and find out you called the wrong person or when you search for the person they no longer exists as the file was merged with another contact. Have been delinking as I find each problem.
Since I updated a few days ago, when I use the Bluetooth in my car, it keeps dropping the call to the phone's speaker. So much for hands-free. This was never a problem with previous versions.
My phone lost everything. All my contacts, pictures, apps, everything gone. Restarted like it was a new phone. Do I have any hope to get any of it back?
Had the same problem starting yesterday. Screen scrolled up and down then side to side so fast it made you dizzy to look at it. Then it would turn to snow and most of the was locked. It overheated so bad you could hardly handle it. Took it to Verizon, another lady standing there next to me had an S5 with similar problem. No fix - they had heard there was an update problem but didn't know much about it. AS I needed a phone I had to buy a new phone - hopefully Samsung gets this under control soon. Whatever the problem, it is not affecting the Samsun S7 as yet.
