jedizkii13, 01 Mar 2015From Philippines here... I have my S5 Exynos version (SM-G900H), and damn, it's so good. I j... moresame for me, in still using my s5 since the day it was released and barely any lag. i do things photography and editing and video editing to post on youtube, i download movies, apps pdf files, look up information, i learn things, look up weather, listen to tons of music, i downloaded flash player to play website games and view free tv shows and live streams, i skype and video chat, i have so many contacts to that i call and text daily, i custumize it and download wallpapers and widgets and launchers and flash roms. and yes i do use all the motion gestures and heart rate and fingerprint sensors and basically most of the features
S5 battery on my phne is not as good. M not happy considering this (s5) was meant to be a top of the range product. It wont go beyond a day unless l use ulra powersaving mode which means most apps and functions are inaccessible.
Samsung improve battery technology in your products or we will not buy anymore samsung products. I have a 10.1 note tablet and jus realised it heats up while not in use and depletes the battery...
I hav issues wth the s5 battery... it heats up as it will melt if ever l use the phone for longer than 10 minutes. I had a similar problem wth s2 when it got older. Is this common to samsung gudgets?
1 meter for 30 minutes...that sounds waterproof enough for me. Unless you drop it in the ocean or a lake. And then...Are you really getting it back anyway?? :)

As for the colors, they are accurate and you have several display mode settings to fit your needs if you aren't satisfied.
Hello friends. ..
My S5 is shows "Audio format AC3 is not supported" in MY MX Player.
While ...in Galaxy S3 ..Same MX Player is running fast without any problems...
S5 going to get one on new contract. I have tried the phone. Personally I like the soft `touch` feel. Coming from iphone 5c I need a BIG screen. I like the square shape of the S5 Even, and probably correctly, it is back dated. And at the moment, apart from Note 4 still the high spec with 2.5 power and 2 Ram I think galaxy do shake a lot of specs and stuff at you. Waterproof, one of the best at the moment cameras. Plus apps. Dazzling screen display and if colour are not accurate who cares. I reckon in 18 months time I will not be bored with the UI,and already many tweaks and setting adjustments. IOS is great, but can be `boring` Also 5s has removable battery, takes the hassle of being at a nowhere place and re charging as buy a spare. For the contract price now, S5 has to be one of the high specced phones there.
my galaxy s5 fell in my sink full of water and wont work now. it was supposed to be water proof. can i get a refund?

I have my S5 Exynos version (SM-G900H), and damn, it's so good. I just don't understand why most of you experiencing lags or battery problem, and me i experienced the goodness or let's say GREATNESS of the device. I just updated my device to 5.0 Lollipop, and thank God it became more and more faster and extend it's battery life like it last more than 24 hrs, with normal-to-hard use, (consistent messaging and calls, hours of web browsing, almost an hour of online gaming, photography and social media).
Considering this is exynos, i expect the snapdragon version is the better one, maximize your device guys. The phone is so great, i assure you.
for a high end phone the s5 is a real letdown
if its not lagging, crashing or overheating its the cheap feel that'll get to you
ive had it for not even 5 months and already hate it
boulbi, 27 Feb 2015Hi,what should i buy ? the galaxy s5 or sony z2 or galaxy note 3 or lg g3 ? and what about gal... moreI've had the galaxy s5 brand new and just recently I had to downgrade to a note 2 by samsung. And my honest opinion is the galaxy s5 is not as nice as the note 2. They've seem to of dropped the ball on newer technology style phones. The new ones are slimmer and function fine but they're boring and too basic. The older phones like the note 2 have say more functions and are user friendly. The s5 is honestly a pain to use if you're into lots of features. I'd go with a note before an s5 series anyday.
