Please between fairly used galaxy S5 and new Xiaomi redmi note4x which should I buy? They fall into my budget. Thank you
AnonD-451787, 12 Aug 2017Do you know that non-removable battery and battery with low life do have reasons.
That is in ... moreYes, but "non removable" battery trend is in question here. You are right we can put this on charge when we wake up.
But in simple words we don't need the removable battery feature just to have a separate battery all the time with us but we need this to easily replace it by removing back cover when the old battery degrades over time.
And that's why the latest and greatest phones can't beat our S5 in terms of features. The trend is going in wrong way, maybe good for rich but not for us general people!
You can't beat removable batteries. Love them!
Great when out and about and you have a spare one in your wallet to keep powered on.
That's why I will never upgrade to S6 S7 or S8 UNTIL YOU CAN HAVE A REMOVABLE BATTERY!
Are you listening Samsung ya mugs!
LG V20 next for me aha!

Anonymous, 09 Aug 2017Yes we can't accept the odd trend of non removable battery just for the greedy brandsDo you know that non-removable battery and battery with low life do have reasons.
That is in cooperation with power bank manufacturer to have business.
I do not like and buy power bank.
Rather i charge to as much as possible before going out.
Once wake up and check if low as below 50% then put to charger to charge.
As most battery may drop as it is not wise to charge at night, as if forgotten to remove the charger before sleep, then beware of the consequences of phone & battery issues.
anonymous, 12 Aug 2017Me too when i charge my S5 it show red on the notification led light but after fully charge it... moreThere is no need to wait for green light as long as it is near or reached 100% then better to remove the charger as it may wear the battery faster.
Usually i will charge when below 50% or when i wake up and preparing to go out.
In this way, there is no need to use power bank as charging & using at the same time may not good for phone as heat will build up faster.
Even it is not yet 100% i still will remove the charger and go out.
The charging to 100% is the bad myth, as phone do not wish to charge in this way.
When the charging reach 99% it could take 1 hour or more to reach 100%.
It was reported, as i had read, that this is to avoid putting the phone charging too fast as in over-charged.
As in this way, it drag the charging time for you to remove the charger to avoid over-charged which may not suitable to both battery and phone.
Hence it is not in reality to actually charged to exact 100% and wait for the green light.
As we are not driving car which have to wait for green light to tell you it is safe to move.
That is why sometimes we may forgotten about the phone is completed charging.
It is not like in olden days where battery have to be dry before charge and have to charge to the max 100% before remove from the charger.
So long as you are not using the phone and battery is less, say, 50% then proceed to charge the phone and leave it until fully charged.
BUT do not charge overnight and ensure the power supply do have surge protection to avoid being burnt.

Just bought mine $200 today as a good bargain.

Suggest To Charge (90-95%) Everytime To Preserve Battery Life.

The galaxy s5 from straighttalk sucks don't come with 4G trouble with texting, always have to click WiFi off then back onto send texts. And this was what I got when I sent my s4 in under warranty. Never again
pagar, 09 Aug 2017Great phone. wish that the s series after s5 was also with removable batteryYes we can't accept the odd trend of non removable battery just for the greedy brands
Graphics is not very high, high-end games will not run smooth. Also, It will become slow after (heavy) use for about one year, simply backup and reset to default.
IR, wireless signals is good, waterproof, solid and it just feels almost premium. Get this boy with 2 spare batteries, 64GB SD Card and you all set for a long period of time. Anything happens simply Google it and Boom tens of solution results.
Great phone. wish that the s series after s5 was also with removable battery
yes, this is the last removable battery high end phone of samsung. w/ micro sd. fast.. but in much 3d games or w/ higher ram needed to open the game.. it crashed. ex. in social app. whn searchng or scrolling feeds. and in some higher mb games.. the prob. is the 2gb ram cze now 3gb or 4gb in lttest phnes. but its fast in gming popular gmes like hungry shark. yes, it heats up when playing hd games as it uses more ram and memory.. specially when using wifi or online gmes. 1yr. of mine.. still gud. but experiencing battery drains fast when plying gmes

It's durable and it just works, works and keeps on working. It's a masterpiece and still the best of the best in my view.

Most appropriate to ask you as I am getting a 2nd hand phone. I don't know which to buy some say Sony Xperia Z3 some say Samsung S5, and even recommend S6 and S7. i am tight budget and so far i see LG G3 is affordable. Can you suggest? Of cause I will not hold you responsible. My budget I have option to go for Samsung S4 or smasung 5 sony Z3 or LG G3
Hi guys. Good day to all. Still holding on to my Sam. Galaxy S5 local Singapore Telco set. Just got an upgrade to Android 6.0 Marshmallow nearly 2 months ago. Everything is running smooth. No complaint and no negative feedback with the new Android 6.0, this is still the "Killer Beast" of Samsung phones. Best phone ever
