First of all, did you do a factory rest after upgrading to Lollipop? If not then do that right away. I hear that makes Lollipop run more efficiently.
Personally I wanted to stick to KitKat from day one so I turned off automatic updates. It was tricky at first because at one point even when I turned it off it kept on telling me that there were new updates...this was when I first got the S5 back in October last year. At the time the update I believe was KitKat 4.4.3...whereas the original OS that comes with the S5 was KitKat 4.4.2. I wanted to stay with the orginal seeing that I just got the phone and wanted to get accustomed to the original OS before upgrading to others.
I had to do a factory reset to get rid of the forcing updates because once it got downloaded I didn't see any way of deleting the download. It just kept sitting there in the notification panel waiting to be installed. It was so stubborn that I had to keep on doing a factory reset and make sure I didn't connect to my Wi-Fi when the setup wizard came up...because once you are online...even before the wizard is completed...your goose is cooked. I did about 5 factory resets before I could make the auto-update setting stacy intact so I wouldn't get any OTA (Over The Air) updates. It was a bit tricky but 8 months later my S5 doesn't even attempt to search for updates and I'm not going near that setting either because I don't want to update to Lollipop after hearing about ALL the HORROR stories that S5 owners have been experiencing since they upgraded to it.
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2015heart rate sensor, water proof all are just gimmick..I don't know of those features being a gimmick. The imitation versions of the S5 are the gimmicks because the fingerprint is said to be stored in the device but it doesn't work. I went to a waterfall recently and my S5 basically got a shower and everything worked perfectly and still working perfectly after several weeks of that waterfall trip. People who speak the way you do either don't own a S5 or don't understand how to operate/utilise it properly.
I have the S5 about 5 months, its a great phone. Good camera, great display, good battery life.
After i got 5.0 my phone became slow, and the SOT for my battery was 3.5 h
I rooted it, and flashed the new XTRESTOLITE ROM, which is based on the official Touchwizz rom, but without the bloatware. I got from the Aroma packet the Multiwindows feature, Download booster and Ultrapower saving mode.
The phone is now superfast, like stock android whit touchwizz look, fantastic battery life (5 h SOT), stock camera app
Had some problems with the original lolipop 5.0 camera was failing all the time but a small official fix solved it. anyways a great mobile device

How did you manage to break your cover? It's easy to open and easy to close.
I love using my S 5 phone, but was very disappointed in the design of the cover for the power cord input. It was so difficult to open it when it
needed to be powered up, that I left it open and it ultimately broke off.
Now I have this beautiful phone with tape over the bottom which gets sticky and keeps coming up.
I hope you will change the design of this in the future. I really don't see what happened as my fault, and think the phone should be replaced.
If not, I will struggle with it until I am due for an upgrade.
@ani808990. Hiya. hope your well. How you enjoying your s5. Is it still going smooth. Thought i would pop over and say hi:-)

Even GSMArena sees it as the best looking of all the Galaxy S before it. You should consider that it has waterproofing which is why it has more bezels than the S4. Nevertheless, the back of the S5 looks better than all the other Samsung smartphones in my view. The camera with the flash and heart rate sensor right below it gives it a nice look. Even another commenter said that the flash/heart rate sensor combo looks more classy with it below the camera compared to the S6 having it at the side of the camera. All in all I have no problem with the S5.
I have s5, i had this phone since jan 2015. So far i havent experience any problems with it. I even soaked it under water 3 times when we had swimming party. I like the lollipop update, its performance had improved and the new ui was quite amazing.
