Anonymous, 31 Jan 2015Does the battery drain quickly after the lollipop update or it's still the sameFor me i think it's about same. I had to remove all battery saving apps, they seem to drain battery on LP instead of actually working.
Using S 5 for 9 months .. got good response from this device. Fast.. no battery problem yet. One issue is that samsung still didn't rolled out 5.0 in India... waiting for it badly..
Finger scanner works good for transactions also private mode is cool option..

alban, 30 Jan 2015where the smart scroll in android 5.0 for samsung galaxy s5...??I think they got rid of it. I wasn't using this option but i just compared my S5 lollipop to my Alpha kitkat : the option is on the Alpha and not anymore on the S5 lollipop.
I hate this whole debate that Samsung has to remove all cool functions of Touchwizz. I was buying Galaxy series for that, not to get an empty phone as i'm used to say.
my device is getting a little bit hot while charging...is it common to everyone or its a faulty device? pls ans me

k, 28 Jan 2015Note 3 would be a better choice otherwise S4 would be fine.Note 3 is 5.7", waaaay too big. But why S4 instead of S5?
Initially I didn't liked it when compared to SG 4 but I'm fan of Samsung Phones, I do like it but my rating is 4/5 for SG 5, best thing about the phone is performance and camera.
The metal-esque edges of the phone easily chip. Its build quality is not stellar, to say the least.
Charlie, 28 Jan 2015Best phone I have ever owned! It is fantastic! Can't wait for S6!To CHARLIE:
Based on my experience with the S5, it's indeed a good smartphone (or SUPER SMARTPHONE as CNET (cnet.com) puts it). As I said before, a lot of people who bash this phone haven't used it or own it long enough to see how good it is.
