Are you a heavy user and notice any slow downs considering its a 2014 phone with 2gb ram or is it fluid to use as a daily driver with the custom os?
Tried any other os that could be recommended?
I'm playing with this for 10 months. installed lineageos 14.1 from very beginning. Phone has no lags, doesn't freeze, sound quality and picture quality very good. Doesn't heat when bluetooth is in use. Battery is very good quality. I'm still not planning to abandon it. This is the last S* with replacable battery, which for me was criterion to buy it.

IPhone nowadays has cheated many users via their backward technology! Overpriced. You only pay their friendly software that almost worthless and you got old technology with 500% markup profit. Only lazy and illiterate people will buy Iphone.
I have owned a samsung galaxy S5 for 3 years, never had any issues. It performs well.
Been using the S5 for 3 years now, credibly can say its a great, reliable phone for short term use.
- MicroSD allows you to increase memory space
- Familiar stock Andriod UI
- Foolproof so long as you get a good screen protector.
- Waterproof too
Problem is, it tends to slow down & overheat VERY fast, esp with newer modern games.
- Camera's total sh*t in dark light conditions
- It doesn't matter if you replace the battery, the older it gets, the more battery it uses. Used to last a day and half, 3 years later and it's less than 16 hrs.
- Lags & jitters when you're using different apps. (Probably due to its tiny 2 GB RAM)
- takes a long time to connect to wifi (Have to manually switch it on from settings)
There are better phones out there for this price though, but if you're getting it, use it no longer than 2 years, or only a year if its second hand. Hope this helps.
I don't trust Samsung's performance anymore. I believe Iphones are by far a lot better for performance, security and battery life.
4 hours SOT on moderate to heavy usage on this phone in 2018 good or not?
How to determine if device is lte model besides for the word written on back cover?
What is the latest security update for the s5 Lte version? Also anyones advice if this is better that the huawei p8 lite 2017?
Which roms are reliable, updated regularly (security), fast & generally a pleasure to use? Any first hand user experiences?Thanks

No such problems on any other devices, but the s5. Tried everything up to resetting the phone to factory settings, but no success.
How to fix high cpu temperatures above 80c. And with this high cpu temp the flash isn't working. It tells me that I need to lower the temp of my phone. Sometimes it even does this when my phone isn't even warm.
Please if any one have an idea how to install Offline local Radio on S5 without using internet. Again i recommend any one to buy a secondhand S5 Coz i don't think there are a new ones in stores. Very friendly phone.
Excellent phone, ambient light sensor, compass, finger print scanner working fine,
Price is affordable,

The Best part is no store other than Google play store ,
So many Apps are able to uninstall.
I recommend this phone.
I highly recommend S 5. Quick and nice to use. But recording quilty it is not good. It is the same problem in S4. In all Iike it very much.
Its really a great phone by features. Selfie camera sucks still using it in 2018 since 2014 2 times battery replaced. however if you need to buy and sell used phones, post free classifieds
