Anonymous, 05 Jan 2018Front camera is just bad :'(( plus it cant focus in the low light concentration 😑 ... moreYes the front camera on the S5 is a let down, its 2Mp compared to primary camera which is 16MP. I'd suggest getting the A5 which is only slightly more, it has 16MP on both front and back.

Even If U Rep... moreI flashed my old S5 with lineage OS (Android 7.1.2), threw a new battery in and it is like a new phone. Fast and responsive, the camera immediately takes a photo no matter the lighting conditions, the battery doesn't rapidly drain. I'm pretty sure Samsung deliberately sabotaged this phone with an update once the new ones came out.
Also it is possible to unlock every LTE band on this phone once you have loaded a custom rom and rooted it.

2. Call quality is great, no need for VOLTE. Also, you can talk for free using Skype, Messenger, etc, etc. Voice calls are a secondary function.
3. Themes? It's an old TouchWiz with 4 icons in a row, themes wouldn't make it better. Even if you change the theme, the icons stay - but I got Nova Launcher on sale and don't care about themes. Every icon and every element is the way I want it.
4. Dual SIM? Not many flagships have that, and I don't know anyone who uses that anyway. One phone bill is enough.
5. Battery life? 4-5 hours not enough? Do you live on your phone? If you need more, buy a computer. ;-)

Most phones without a removable battery are no better than location tracking ankle bracelets as they handshake with every cell phone tower they pass. Occasionally, I prefer the peace of mind that having a removable battery provides.

Just replace a new one since S5's advantage is its easily replaceable battery.
Very good phone and features are very good.
Camera quality is also too good and only one thing irritates me that is battery drain problem. its battery life is to short only use for 4 or 6-hour battery drain fully and its needed two times charging in a day.
Front camera is just bad :'(( plus it cant focus in the low light concentration 😑 other else just okay only the camera make me suck 🤐

I got the Mashmallow update and its very bad! The screen has a bright light background now which you can't change! Guys, don't get this update!!!!
Don't ever buy Samsung, they have the worst Customer service, when you have a warranty issues, you have to wait and wait send email after email wait 24 to 72 HR for them to contact you. They never do and then you have to start all over. Get a different phone and Tablet because when they stop working after 3 months you have to wait 3 month more just to get it fixed thats if you get lucky.
