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!

Anonymous, 02 Feb 2015Don't be fooled by the "wireless changing" claim in the Features section. While the ... moreYes, wireless charging feature is optional and should be written as it in specs (same for S4). But for 40$ you don't get only the back cover Qi enabled but also the charging plate.
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.

man, 01 Feb 2015I like lolipop, but sliding pages on homescreen is laggy sometimes? Do you have same issue?it cuz of stupid ui (touchwiz) the worst ui ever it so laggy but the phone awesome hope sammy use another ui :)
Guys please help... i have my s5 for 2 months and it is awesome . But after upgrading to lolipop im facing some issues : it became pretty laggy ( i have almost whole memory free) and i think my battery drains faster . Have any of you some advice ? long live samsung :D
I had this phone for like a week now, and I updated to lollipop the day I bought it ., battery life is good and I love the new user interface , it's so so tasty like lollipop. The only thing they should fix here is make the apps showing running apps pop up faster when u tap the left hand soft key , when that is done which I believe they can fix with an update this phone will even be better
I honestly believe iPhone beats any Samsung phone. It may have a weaker camera, a less elaborate specs but who cares, IOS is a much more user friendly program and with an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6+, you can do wonders with IOS vs. Samsung best phone using Android. Try this and you will see. Forward an email from a pop or Exchange account, then try editing its contenting before sending. Not possible but on iOS it is a breeze. This is only one of the examples.
