For those who has battery life issue (drains very fast). Try to remove your microSD card. This helped me on my old galaxy s4. I replaced it with another one - works perfect now. Hope this helps you as well. Good Luck !

Original-Jamaican, 14 Apr 2017Not to mention the battery outperforms many newer phones with higher capacity batteries.How do you make your battery last? Mine leaves 100% to 80% or less in just 10 minutes! And the rest of the battery drains at 1% per minute on screen.
anonymous, 13 Apr 2017for your info it still perform better than alot of current flagship...ok? Understand?Not to mention the battery outperforms many newer phones with higher capacity batteries.

Samsung, 12 Apr 2017Of course, it's not a flagship since who knows when...But at around 200 Â€/£ is still better than a lot of more recent mobiles at the same price range.

The battery label sticker below the battery shows 1800 mAh for the G900H (octa-core) while it shows 1500 mAh for the G900F (quad- core). Anybody knows why?
Anonymous, 06 Apr 2017what's the best s5 model? G900F?
Some say G900FH, Some say G900F. I say G900H. If you multitask a lot the G900H which is the ONLY version with 8 CPUs compared to the G900F 4 CPUs, gives you better results. Some say the G900F is faster at single tasks operation but I did a test where the dialler opened more quickly on a G900H compared to a G900T which is T-Mobile's version of the G900F.
All is all any S5 you choose is a winner in terms of speed but take note that not ALL S5 have isocell camera sensors which gives you excellent imaging qualities. The G900H certainly have it but some variants like the G900V (Verizon) seems to use the Sony image sensor.
It's a jungle out there where the S5 is concerned. I have the G900H and am very happy with it. I have no problems with it whatsoever. It's as good as the day I first took it out of the box which was basically 2 years 6 months ago. You can't go wrong with a S5 and it has more features than the majority of today's phone. Do you comparisons and see for yourself.

It might algo be hardware. Had something similar to your problem and it was the USA port that didn't work properly. When I connected it to the computer, it would recognize the phone and then stop and recognise again, non stop...
This phone was too old for me, but processor makes the price will not going down easily
It because clockspeed of this Galaxy S5 can up to 2.500MHz, that's howmarkable. I admit this phone can handle heavy apps or games with smoothly condition even RAM is not bigger, but playing games without any apps works on background, there is no problem to do it.
I'm not sure S5 is 100% safe on the water with removable battery on the back, just make sure is firmly sealed :D
My S5 not pick the charger but some time pik when my mobile is off then the hazard symbol is workin but battery not charg what happened can you gave me any suggestions please

Lasted a week doing same thing. Been on the phone all afternoon wanting a new phone or my money back. Seems to be a problem with a new one as I didn't pay over $500,00 for the phone. Manager ringing back tomorrow with an answer to replace it or send it away again.
