Hey guys I want to buy an S5 but I don't know wich one (G900A, G900F, G901, etc)
Give me a hand? Thks!!
Android 5.1.1 win ... just check out CyanogenMod, up to date there ... plus less clutter, more customizeability ... would expect 6.0 to be out not too long down the road ... nearly all Smartphone makers (apart from Google with the pure Nexus phones) lose out on updates, it's not a moneymaker for them, just cost ...
Iqbal, 28 Oct 2015On android 5.0 it sucks too much battery and heating issued . Other user having same issue with me ?Android 5 for S5 failed...
Wilson, 28 Oct 2015I will never understand why you idiots put the volume control on the external part of the phon... moreYES !!! I agreed, Even to the extend i press the On/Off switch in order to lock, and I still failed to hear the volume many times, as it sudden the volume has lost it sound. Only when i use the phone to check the time, i see "missed call", not once but many times it happen, and still happen. Even if it is "Missed sms" seem ok afterall it sound once, but for "missed calls" this is absurd. What more is that normal ring will be at least for 30 second !!! For 30 second doing nothing still "missed calls" it is so funny...
Naga5222, 29 Oct 2015no .. spec wise the s5 is better , unless they replace with A700F model not A700FDSpec wise is like "see no touch". At first i do agree, that is before i bought two S5. Now one S5 giving a lot of problem from the beginning, model SM-G901F 16GB. The game developer said that that model have screen graphic issue and not same as SM-G900F 32GB. Then the developer had to create an update to fix that problem only.
Spec wise A8 that is close to Note 4 spec. Spec wise = see no touch...
Gamtoosie, 29 Oct 2015I purchased a Samsung Galaxy S5. Within the first three weeks the screen turned black. Vodacom... moreYES !!! I do agree with you. The screen go blank = correct. S5 is replace A7 = very possible. A8 replace Note 4 no stock?? Actually, in the beginning it already have problem and Samsung Service Center refuse to comment !!! My favorite game developer said S5 screen graphic is too unique to which they had to fix this problem for only S5 SM-G901F
Anonymous, 30 Oct 2015S5 is betters than a7I think A8 is better. Having two S5 for a year, it start showing sign of phone problem poping up. Screen at times is blank, touch screen or button failed at time.
steve, 29 Oct 2015my question is the samsung galaxy s5 water resistant Not totally and their measurement is about finger depth and very short time in the water. It always tell you to close the battery cover and back case. But if you regularly charge the phone, say once every 2 - 3 days, will the battery cover really cover tight to prevent water. Now after 1 year, the battery cover auto open by itself. But other phone do not need the cover but can do water test as the battery without cover itself is secured.
Gabes, 30 Oct 2015How does one change the default storage from the device to the SD card on Samsung Galaxy S5?Don't think this will save storage space. All apps have their program running inside the OS hidden partition. Save to; it is like a temp space for apps to run when it need. This is similar to Windows (now Android follow) do have use external flash ram to act as extra space to run the programs. Just a link to have extra ram &or memory space, and do not save much space at all.
Davidgeorge, 30 Oct 2015friends need help ASOP,. sorry to ask about this here, guessing most of the S6 users must hav... moreSo far for 1 year there is no problem. Make sure the S5 has 32GB check the storage (in setting) and model is SM-G900F and android version is 5.0 should be fine. Offer seem reasonable. If it is S5 has 16GB model SM-G901F android 5.0.2 then do not buy, as i am having problem in using it, as sometime it start to act weird, such as apps failed to update properly, screen go blank (totally black-out). When bought new, it already have graphic &or screen is totally different from SM-G900F, which Samsung did not comment on this problem, and the game developer knew that the graphic screen is totally different, and had to get another phone with same model to verify and fix the issue. Frankly speaking, i give up on these 2 S5, a bad decision myself. Now the phone is so cheap, even the package bundle with phone is around the same as low-end model. A very disappointed Samsung 'loyal' customer, with no help from their Service Center...
Wilson, 28 Oct 2015I will never understand why you idiots put the volume control on the external part of the phon... moreBuy an lg phone.. Volume will not increase unless you unlock the phone.. Moreover the buttons are at back.. Its more convenient
