Anonymous, 06 Apr 2017what's the best s5 model? G900F?
Some say G900FH, Some say G900F. I say G900H. If you multitask a lot the G900H which is the ONLY version with 8 CPUs compared to the G900F 4 CPUs, gives you better results. Some say the G900F is faster at single tasks operation but I did a test where the dialler opened more quickly on a G900H compared to a G900T which is T-Mobile's version of the G900F.
All is all any S5 you choose is a winner in terms of speed but take note that not ALL S5 have isocell camera sensors which gives you excellent imaging qualities. The G900H certainly have it but some variants like the G900V (Verizon) seems to use the Sony image sensor.
It's a jungle out there where the S5 is concerned. I have the G900H and am very happy with it. I have no problems with it whatsoever. It's as good as the day I first took it out of the box which was basically 2 years 6 months ago. You can't go wrong with a S5 and it has more features than the majority of today's phone. Do you comparisons and see for yourself.

It might algo be hardware. Had something similar to your problem and it was the USA port that didn't work properly. When I connected it to the computer, it would recognize the phone and then stop and recognise again, non stop...
This phone was too old for me, but processor makes the price will not going down easily
It because clockspeed of this Galaxy S5 can up to 2.500MHz, that's howmarkable. I admit this phone can handle heavy apps or games with smoothly condition even RAM is not bigger, but playing games without any apps works on background, there is no problem to do it.
I'm not sure S5 is 100% safe on the water with removable battery on the back, just make sure is firmly sealed :D
My S5 not pick the charger but some time pik when my mobile is off then the hazard symbol is workin but battery not charg what happened can you gave me any suggestions please

Lasted a week doing same thing. Been on the phone all afternoon wanting a new phone or my money back. Seems to be a problem with a new one as I didn't pay over $500,00 for the phone. Manager ringing back tomorrow with an answer to replace it or send it away again.

The iPhone 5s is better in performance than the galaxy S5 but in other aspects the galaxy S5 is better but not in many aspects
Has someone incontured a problem when suddenly the phone charges slower than usual, and battery lasts a bit shorter than usual, this happened once, but then the phone reacted normally.. I don't know it it could be a problem with some app that is using battery in background, or the battery issue, or charger or usb cable isue, the carger is genuine samsung one, but cable isn't original, although it charged the phone really well untill now? Thank in advance on your answers..

Phone INFO ★Samsung★ by vndnguyen for google play. They have a firmware browser that may find firmware updates for your phone. But it may not work if your phone has been hybridized. If you want OTA updates, try to find a firmware that is compatible with or released by your carrier.
Still a good choice for 2017. All the bells and whistles for under $200. Updates to Marshmallow 6.0.1. I had a G900A and now a G900T. I like the T a little better because of the software differences. The G900T is also better for my carrier.
Dany16, 22 Mar 2017Any problems with this phone?To DANY16:
The only problem is that you might get too addicted to it. You have been warned (smile).
I have my S5 G900f which is running kitkat 4.4.2
It has a G900A bootloader , And a G900A baseband.
An AT&T CSC code, and Fingerprint build.
it even has the AT&T software update which Ban me from recieving any OTA update, i'm from morocco and i use it with my maroc telecom SIM card.
but it's running a G900f firmware !
i even took the IMEI i get by dialing *#06# and put it in IMEI checker and it says it's a G900f !
do i have a refurbished phone or a firmware mixed one ?
now , i want to update it to marshmallow.
what model's firmware do you think i should be flashing to update it to marshmallow ?
i'm still confused if i have a G900f or A G900A.
Hello to all of Galaxy S5 Users!!! :D
I have my Galaxy S5 in almost 3 years(April 2014 to be exact) ... I really love my phone :D :D :D . it didn't give me any trouble or something . It works perfectly !! . No performance and heating issues, long lasting battery, perfect camera and it's still WATERPROOF AMAZING !! :D
I have the Galaxy S5 with a model of SC-04F (from NTT DOCOMO) color white with an S-view Copper Gold, running on android 6.0.1 (Marshmallow) . It has 32gb of internal memory, a fast charging capability and a wireless charging capability (besides power button there's a 2 gold holes)
This is regarding with the Marshmallow Update . I doubt with others complaining their S5 occuring issues after Marshmallow update . I have updated my S5 last Aug 2016 , after the update it's became laggy, I have read on the internet that I should do a reset after updating my phone . Then eventually, I follow the instructions , I backup-ed my data , go to Recovery Mode , wiping CACHE PARTITION and do a WIPE DATA/ FACTORY RESET it will stock on SAMSUNG LOGO about 5mins and it will boot up :)
Marshmallow Update is AWESOME !!! it will really improved your phone I swear :)
-Improved Camera especially Auto focus speed
-Improved Icons and some interface
-Improved Fingerprint scanner
-Improved the speed of browsing and loading
-Improved battery life
(I like the improvements of camera, icon and fingerprint scanner :D)
I advised that all of Galaxy S5 users should update to MARSHMALLOW :D this review is for my beloved phone's birthday :D hehehe kinda weird . But i still have my Galaxy s3 for 5 years :D and still working fine with no issues , long battery life though :)
PS: I love the MINI ANIME CARTOON ASSISTANT floating on my S5 screen :D
