I bought the samsung galaxy s5 20 days ago. I have got problems with the battery life. It is exhausted very fast (it lasts less than 24 hours with minimum use of the internet) , but my big problem it comes from the fact that the phone is heated up. It warms up even if you don't use its at all, just is open.
Does anyone can help? Is there any explanation? or is about a faulty device I got?
I always look forward to the new Galaxy S series but the last 2 have been miserable and slowish and poor battery. I am one of the folk who Touchwhizz does actually bring me features i use.
As always, "Come on Sammy blow us away this time"..
I am soon to buy a new phone and was looking at this one versus the Sony Experia Z3. It's a very close match between the two but I think I will go for the Samsungthe see e t just seems to have the edge over the Sony, plus the Samsung has a larger community of developers who love to customise the Galaxy series off phones. In other words, the Samsung Galaxy family has a ton of third party support, more so than most other manufacturers of Android phones.
Also, I have a few friends who already own this phone and have said that it is miles better than its predecessors, including the S3 which I currently own. Two of those friends also upgraded from the S3 and both said hiow much better the S5 is over the S3.
Brynn, 03 Jan 2015Some phones i do buy brand new but it is are all my hands are second hand.The big thing is if ... moreYeah brynn, everything keep on changes with timeline.
Infact I cant say firmly about this android hype after 5 years. ?
As you said Nokia N series rocked once, now Samsung android on the ramp & dunno who is going to be next ? Anything may happen ? maybe Blackberry or microsoft or any new OS !!
As of I am happy with the Samsung device as a One time purchase per 5 years.

Some phones i do buy brand new but it is are all my hands are second hand.The big thing is if i buy new then sell in a month i lose 100's but just waiting a bit longer to try the phones stops that..
It depends how much you want the phone i used to buy every Nokia N-series brand new but stopped when all these touch screen smartphones arrived.
Also a lot of folk buy these on a 2 year contract but i HATE contracts especially cancelling the buggers when 2 years is up..
If it is something i really want now i do buy like Sony Z3c and BB Classic but the S6 will have to impress me to buy it NEW.
ijaz.ali, 03 Jan 2015that's because they have money, they do not wait like u for the price to go down.Dont they feel sad when they see the same device selling at the price 60% lesser than their purchase ?
I think these kind of electronics must an one time purchase per 5 years (approx) for hard earned people like me :)
Look at S3 and S4 price tag now, almost 65% slashed from their intro price. Strange.
I personally feel the real value of Electronics are Nil.
Anyhow i am happy with Device ! Looing forward to have for some more 3-4 years :)

Infact the S4 I9506 having better config than this Grand 3 in disguise.
S4 I9506 Black leather edition would be a perfect selection than this Grand 3 mockery !!

Only 1gb? We can get an octa-core , 3gb for less money :D
and u come here talking to me iphone is good phone.

And many people including yourself have switched to iPhone that's according to Samsung and you behave as if you like it so much. Don't convince yourself to such a degree even Z3 and G3 are far better than samsung. Mind you, everyone is using IPad Air that has destroyed your tablets..
Just update my s5 to official lollipop (malaysia). Simply amazing. You wont believe it is a samsung device.

faniiii, 01 Jan 2015galaxy s5 or iPhone 6??? need your suggestions........plzzzz helpDepends on what u like in the phone, just check both the specifications and decide which one fulfills ur needs, people usually here will tell you to buy Iphone 6, because they are S5 users and they get used to with their S5, so will decide from their perspective.
