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. ??????

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?
anonymous, 25 May 2017agree with you i think that elvis is is also a conHe may be a con indeed as he only listed alleged cons of the S5.
Elvis, 24 May 2017worst Samsung product ever after note 7
camera isn't good enough
slow fingerprint scanner To ELVIS:
And those two cons make it the second worse Samsung product? I don't have those issues with my S5. Why should anybody take advice from you anyway, Elvis is dead.

Anonymous, 17 May 2017this update is a downgrade by samsung and they make you to purchase new device !It's a security update, the phone works the same as before, and I even got some more free space. If they were really doing what you say, no one would buy a Samsung again.
MdN8, 14 May 2017I just received a 120 MB system update. Very nice of Samsung to keep supporting the S5.this update is a downgrade by samsung and they make you to purchase new device !
