Since my phone updated on 5/1/16 it is EXTREMELY hot and the battery drains quickly when I have nothing running. I have never had an issue before and now my phone can't be off of a charger for long. It is an Galaxy S6 phone. It got so hot today that I shut it off for fear that my phone would burn up. When I look at my battery usage it says that my screen is using 78% of my battery power???? How is that possible. The brightness isn't even 1/4th the way up. And the timeout is set to 1minute.
New update on S5 MINI is utter bin fodder!!!! What on earth have you boys been doing in the Samsung lab? Thinking ways to ruin phones? Or is your huge corporate company just too rich that you feel you have to relieve some customers?
lifesgood83, 07 Mar 2016With my latest update to my S5; my sd card is nonreadable. I have to restart my phone in orde... moreA week after the update (battery life was cut in half during that time and the phone was very warm) my SD card died. It's fried and can't even be formatted again. Since then, battery life is back to normal, so I think there's a clear connection :-(
After I upgraded my S5 mini would always feel very warm in my pocket and battery life was cut in half. Then my SD card broke after about a week. It didn't just get corrupted, it is actually fried and cannot be read any more on a block-basis. At the same time battery life was restored to normal, so I think there's a clear connection between the upgrade, battery drain and frying of my high-end (Samsung PRO) SD card.
I'm rather pissed!

What on earth have you done Samsung! You have turned my phone into a paperweight since you have updated it to lollipop. There are so many issues the phone is now unusable. This needs sorting out immediately so I can get it back out the drawer I put it in the day after you updated it last week. I am now having to use my old xepria ray which now has marshmallow on it that runs quicker and smoother than my s5 mini lollipop.
My S5 mini which has always ben great is now crap after this update. Mega slow to do anything. Keep getting warnings that apps are slowing it down....rubbish.
I am having multiple problems after the 2016 update. Too many to list.
Since update 28-apr-16 my note 2 is now not screen mirroring on tv.
BuckeyeLady, 22 Apr 2016I have a game that I play daily with an out of town friend. The game won't load. I touch my sc... moreDear BuckeyeLady,
I too, am very angry as I've lost all my photos too!!!!! The entire SD card has been corrupted and will not read in the phone or on my PC. I just returned from a vacation and didn't have time to move my photos. Now they are gone!!! I'm sick about losing all my wonderful photos. Samsung owes me a re-do on my expensive vacation. This is the second time since owning my S5 that I have lost all photos. Many other issues with phone locking up, touch screen not responding to touch, running very slow, and fast battery drain. Samsung better get it together cause I think I'm now done with any new phones from them and future recommendations to my friends.
I can't access my email. I'm not receiving texts. Can't save my ringtone or vibration settings. Phone is running SO slowly. This is AGGRAVATING. Stop with these raggedy updates. You're trying to fix something that wasn't broken in the first place. Ugh.
Since the update there have been several issues. When getting an incoming call I often don't have access to my number pad or any buttons, it just shows "incoming call" even though the call is answered and conversation has started. Which means I can't dial a number to answer an automated call, I can't put it on speaker phone, and I also can't even hang up the call--I must let the other end hang up or restart my phone to terminate the call.
It has affected my "network connection" for email. I get error messages after I think an email has been sent, and my email often won't refresh to see new emails. It won't accept a fingerprint after restart so I have to enter my backup password, only while entering the screen times out and I have to start all over.
Since upgrade: Bluetooth sinc with car goes out constantly. Background with anoying ads, my VM had to be set up like it was a new account. Gallery messed up. Cannot send pictures ANYWHERE (email or text), Odd apps keep appearing and battery life cut in half. I'm not amused, Samsung. Restore or fix or you will lose me and many others
Since the most recent update, my Galaxy S5 keeps losing WiFi and won't connect to the Bluetooth system on my car. Both worked perfectly before.
Since the update my phone will shut off and reboot on it's on. This is really frustrating! Don't send me anymore darn updates!!!
This has done the same to me, all my photos I have taken recently and videos are storing with error messages. Also my battery is draining really quickly. Has anyone found a solution to undo an update please?
polly, 18 Apr 2016What a pain! Since the "update" I've had nothing but problems! Screen goes black and no matter... moreI have use Samsung for several years now before that HTC. I haven't Samsung S3 and have not installed the new lollipop update. I would suggest you check for another location to get help with your phone it sounds like customer service you're receiving is pathetic. Not all of them are so laxidasical about their clients service. Report the individual store when you find another one to go to. Good luck I hope they fix your issues soon.
