Sumsung is the best phone ever from it kind of release, i will alwayz be married with my S5
AnonD-1385, 05 May 2017To MDN8: The S5 is a masterpiece of a phone.Fully Agree...ditto
The best phone with great 801 chip...camera 10 out of 9...superb phone..but not supported VoLet...pls ...samsung team...look at us..we are using 1 of best phone in s series..in there is no volet....make it possible.
To the many people complaining about battery drain:
As with most phones this comes with all the apps Samsung/vendor wants you to have/buy/use. Without root they can not be removed, only disabled; it will be on your phone and unless it's removed/disabled it will be running, hence drain your battery.
Now you'll know what to do - before disabling / after removing (on rooted phones) the crap do a factory reset. A Snapdragon 801 is nothing to dislike, to date is one of the best chips made (my LG G2 uses an older version and the OnePlus One uses this same one), runs latest custom Nougat firmware without a hitch.

have you experience a yellowish or blackscreen sometimes in your s5? Some say that it is an amoled burn? How can you fix this problem?
Lucky , 31 May 2017What a joke it has snap dragon you d prefer it to be meditek? really suprising comment
AnonD-1385, 29 May 2017Exactly. I have had mine since 2014 and I don't have any form of issue like that.What a joke it has snap dragon
PKM1, 30 May 2017Does it have voLTE out of the box and OTG? It has USB OTG, tested with my USB stick and mouse. I think VoLTE has to be enabled, not sure.
anonymous, 30 May 2017This is one damn solid phone till today. Anyone who complains about issues such as overheating... moreI constantly say this can go head to head with many 2017 flagships. As somebody said recently, it seems as if Samsung wanted to make the very best possible phone when they made the S5. It still lives on and has more capabilities than many newer ones.
AnonD-1385, 29 May 2017Exactly. I have had mine since 2014 and I don't have any form of issue like that.This is one damn solid phone till today. Anyone who complains about issues such as overheating or battery draining fast it's all their own doing. They expect a phone to be 100per cent perfect. Help me find one i will also buy. There are absolutely no complains about this beast it performs like a charm. No lag slight overheating is acceptable as with all phones. No battery drain unless your battery is way too old. Even new batteries will depend on your usage. I will still dare say till date it's one of the best mobile even better than some newer models.
anonymous, 29 May 2017your s5 also fake la or maybe u don't know how to use manExactly. I have had mine since 2014 and I don't have any form of issue like that.
AnonD-265743, 27 May 2017FYI : the battery drains very quickly. if you're not then you simply do factory data reset Ba... moregot an S5. Had it since 2014 and now the battery is draining faster than I can charge it (well, almost). I love the phone but after turning the phone on, it tells me I need to stop between 35 and 50 applications that are slowing the device down and draining the battery. ??????
Pharoahs, 26 May 2017not lucky with S5 yet. I got my 1st one n it was over heating at 1st day. returend and got rep... moreFYI : the battery drains very quickly. if you're not then you simply do factory data reset
Battery consumption depends on the applications you have installed on the phone and working in the background even if you do not use the phone. such as; facebook, instagram, messenger,snapchat,Netflix,etc, so if you delete these apps and use them through the browser , thus saving up to 40% of the battery (day)life , the display put on minimum brightness and wi - fi, bluetooth,3G use it when you need.
li -ion batteries work better when you are not used to the end 0%,but most to 25 % and then put the battery to charge75-90% , ( why?)
lithium-ion batteries have a rated lifetime of somewhere between 500 and 1,500 charge cycles.
so if it reach 100% or less then 25% then it lose 1 cycle.(the user runs it down all the way to zero before recharging) can degrade to 70 percent of its original capacity in 300-500 cycles
With a DoD of 25 percent, where the user plugs it in as soon as it gets to 75 percent remain, that same battery could be charged up to 2,500 times before it starts to seriously degrade.
Charge a little bit whenever you can.
Lithium-ion batteries don't respond well to being charged all the way up and then run all the way down. They take much better to little bits of charge here and there.What's far more dangerous to a battery's well-being is heat. Lithium-ion batteries despise heat.
suggests that calibration ÂÂ– fully discharging then recharging your phone's battery ÂÂ– once every three months helps it maintain its charge capacity
not lucky with S5 yet. I got my 1st one n it was over heating at 1st day. returend and got replaced. This one was ok with heating initially but camera was not as good as other S5. And the audio for net calls are pathetic. Have a few friends with S5 and they seem to have not trouble with them.
Bought it in September last year, now the phone heats up when being charged and the battery don't last. I feel it is the worst of Samsung phones I have ever used. Samsung Wonder, S3 mini, S3 were all excellent phone during their days.. this one just a disappointment for me. Any one have solutions for the heating other than getting a new battery or charger. Also any suggestion on improving camera and audio bot ways -speaker and mic?
