It was a promising device. Unfortunately it has rather poor support from Samsung. The build quality is also poor.
Means that it can resist water pressure prevailing at 1m for a duration of 30m as far as tests conducted in labs are concerned. But the thing is that it is not water proof but water resistant and can therefore still get some damaged if exposed deliberately to water. Its real resistance is that it is splash proof mainly...
Abdul Aziz Mansoor, 11 Aug 2015Guyz please tell me about your lolipop experience on S5 Active Should i update or not ??u should upgrade
sukrsa2004, 11 Aug 2015Besides your comments I want to add some.
How Apple make their device "lag-free"? ... moreYour comment is pathetic. You actually know nothing about smartphones, but you act like a well-known expert...
iDevices rather mediocre multitasking and lack of flash player support are not caused by the optimisation!
The former is caused by the low amount of RAM. Browser tabs refreshing, apps reloading, etc. are all the result of the 1 GB of RAM. If you take a look at the iPad Air 2 with 2 GB of RAM, there's no such thing happening anymore.
The latter on the other hand, isn't caused by anything... iOS doesn't support Flash Player since its creation. It's also worth mentioning that Android has long terminated Flash Player support officially since (IIRC) Jelly Bean.
S5 is the best choice now if you are looking for a top range smartphone.
Price is now cheap thanks to S6 but the S5 is not much different compare to S6.
In fact i feel it is better. I don't really mind the built material or fingerprint sensor.
S5 has a better battery life,microSD slot,amazing screen and Snapdragon 801 is still amazingly fast. Strongly recommend to go for it
S5 will not dissapont you in any respects it has a great screen and camera over Z2 as well as better battery backup though it will feel cheap and plasticy too at the same time its lighter than z2 and easier to operate with both hands also you will have to compensate aor a gig of ram too as s5 ha 2gb and z2 has 3gb of ram but dont worry s5 wont lag as it has high ram usage so all applcations are loaded into memory so opens faster.
Will SM-G900T T-mobile support LTE band 3?
Anyone using band 3 LTE on T-mobile version?
I just bought sony Xperia Z2, past I had Samsung Galaxy S3 and so Z2 has really fast performance (galaxy S3 was annoying slow), nice design, good battery life, but the camera is not good, worse than galaxy S3, and with Z2 I have really bad sound quality, when I talk with somebody (cant hear some words of caller, has some echo sounds, all callers said, that I sound like I am in barrel or something), and that is two really big minuses to Z2.
So I am confused, because rewievs for Z2 were really good. And I think to change Z2 to galaxy S5. Can You please give me some advice? Maybe I have to change some options to Z2? ( I already switch off noise reduction)
is the samsung galaxy s5 have camera error problems and battery problems
Guyz please tell me about your lolipop experience on S5 Active Should i update or not ??

VJNK, 11 Aug 2015Hi... Please note that S5 is only water resistant and not water-prof. U can put the phone in ... moreThe S5 is water resistant for 30 min in 1 meter of water... In these 30 min, it doesn't matter if you use it underwater or anything, if all of its ports are throughly closed and the back cover is properly inserted, nothing at all will happen to it... But the problem is that, if it is underwater it touch doesn't work....
Anonymous, 11 Aug 2015hi. I have an s5 when I use the S HEALTH try to measure stress level the its just loading and ... moreI guess you have updated your S5 to Lolipop 5.0 and S Health versiion 4.4.0.0119.
After upgrading it happens.
Samsung has to solve the issue. Until then go to S-health/More/Manage items, off/on Stress tracker and Heart rate (if already on) tracker.
It will solve your problem.

How Apple make their device "lag-free"? Apple fans will answer, by optimizing the software. Now what are those optimization?
Do you know why apple product does not have true multi tasking, flash player support etc?
Those are the optimizations they did.
If you restrict your Android device to single task then it also become "lag-free".
If you want a device which is very simple to use and you don't want to do any creative thing/R&D then you may go with Apple.
But, if you want a device which you can use as you wish and it will never restrict you then you must go with Andriod.
