i am using samsung galaxy s5(sm-g900f) from 12/1/15 and i updated it to lolipop 25/1/15. now a days i notice that sometimes touch take times and laggy.anyone plz help me?
Adil, 03 Feb 2015Hi all, I updated my s5 to lollipop few days back out of curiosity. First, there is no huge... moreWhy is S6 has a smaller screen than the S5 coz, S5 5.1" and S6 5.0" ,i think they are the same phones
I updated my s5 to lollipop few days back out of curiosity. First, there is no huge difference in the interface, KitKat was just doing fine. Secondly, The 'MUTE' option is gone which is pretty annoying. If you are having a conversation and the phone is in your hand, it keeps vibrating on every message. At times I wanted to put it to completely mute. Instead they have give option of setting 'Vibration Intensity'. But for that you have to go to Settings and change every time. Pretty annoying for me.
One more thing, after update, my battery got drained in just 9 hours, with nearly no usage at all. Did a factory reset and turned off all 'Analytical Data Sending' features, Now its back to normal.
Lastly, loads of space is utilized by OS. So you don't really see much space to play around.
Rest all is ok.
I think, KitKat people shall wait for a stable Lollipop update because downgrade is not possible without voiding the warranty.
The phone is awesome indeed.

It will solve most of the problems after update like battery life & lag! Battery will drain quickly after updating to lollipop and factory reset. Do a couple of full charges (0% to 100%) 10-15 times then it will be normal!

To those interested, the Qi back cover makes the phone a bit thicker (overall thickness gets same as the camera) and i'm not sure but it only exists in black.
Don't be fooled by the "wireless changing" claim in the Features section. While the Nexus 5 (my first and cheaper choice) includes wireless charging built in, the S5 requires a $40 alternate battery cover to enable wireless charging.
Otherwise, VERY pleased with this phone.
