Unless you're watching youtube videos or livestreams in high quality constantly your battery life should be really great.

Hi! im planning on getting the S5, im kinda confused about which S5 version should i get? the octa core or the snapdragon?? thanks!!!!
When I receive an incoming call the caller hears my phone ring 4 times before I hear it or before my phone lights up. Any suggestions to fix?

anti s, 16 Sep 2014for 700€ expensive phone I would expect at least metal, not cheap colored plastic. DISAPPOINTED.Metal isn't necessary to determine the quality of a product. For example consider the aluminum housing of the iphone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, and 6plus. very prone to damage and color blemishes, extremely easy to bend and cause dents, and difficult to maintain ones grip. The metal casing also makes for poor screen protection. If dented towards the screen it will always stay in that position keeping pressure on the glass. This accumulated pressure can easily cause the glass to break from any addition pressure of any degree. plastic is more malleable and tends to recoil back to original design. plastic also absorbs impact while metal tends to allow the flow of impact to travel on through. Metal is poor choice and quality ergonomically and functionally when applied to the exterior of a phone.
I have bought Samsung Galaxy S5 processor is very cheap / unknown brand in indian version while international version has Snapdragon 801 Samsung keep partiality with Indians in spite of huge market in India but no longer they can make foolish as nexus 5 has record break sales this year in India only due to high configuration. Even xiomi/ gionee / micromax / motorola / Oppo gives better hardware.

Anonymous, 15 Sep 2014Hi everyone, can a real time user of s5 tell me what exactly that ultra power saving feature i... moreThe Ultra Power Saving Mode is one of the best features available on the market at the moment. And it isn't a gimmick whatsoever if that's what you are afraid of.
It turns the screen to grayscale limits the usage of the phone to basic services only while drastically improving the battery life, for every 10% of your current battery life you get day and a half of estimated usage left. I just turned on the feature on my S5 just to give you an example (75% battery life translates to 9.5 days of estimated usage left).
Overall, I am using the S5 for 2 months now, and I must admit it is by far the best phone at the moment for it's current price/performance ratio.
Go for it!

For example, your S5 might be down to 15% battery but you need to check something and at the same time! worried that the battery may run out. On a normal phone, 15% of battery gets you around 5 mins of use. Ultra Power saving lets you browse the web and make phone calls for up to 30 mins at 5% battery.

how to increase volume of sms message it stays silent and can not set the sound,
what can i do
Power Saving mode is not a hype gimmick :3
base on my experience, having my sg s5 for 4months, its a life saving app that keeps me connected 24/7. Yah its gonna get ur screen black and white and limited apps to be used, buts its worth the use.
Hi everyone, can a real time user of s5 tell me what exactly that ultra power saving feature is all about? How does it work, how much influence does it have as to improving on battery live? or is it another overhyped gimmick from samsung?
samsung s5 price start first do drop in India market,hugely price drop there about 105 euros,soon will be globally drop i think (about months and half or 2 months later).Samsung company must drop the price because the galaxy alpha is coming.Remember this is the first year that samsung introduce 2 smartphone(galaxy alpha and samsung s5).Because of that reason samsung s5 price will start to drop early,even more with new samsung s6 next year (Februar 2015).
Wait a litle those who wanna to buy a samsung s5!
Brentzilla, 15 Sep 2014S5 or G3?s5 of course is the best.amoled is the best.camera is the best also water resistant ,fingersprint,ultra power saving mode and the battery is awesome!
Brentzilla, 15 Sep 2014S5 or G3?Go for G3. I'm not disappointed by it. Runs everything very smooth. The camera! i didn't succeed to take good photos in the night, but on daylight they are awesome. The filming is good for my standards. Charging takes 1 hour to charge from electrical network, and all most 2'30" on USB from PC. I had an S4 for almost a year. It was very good but i wanted to buy the new S5, but then came the G3 in my country with a promotion including G Pad 7.0 V400 for 585 Euro (In Romania). I was very pleased when i got it. Not once i had a problem with it since 2 month's ago. I have the 32 GB, 3 GB RAM version. So yes, i say that you should go for G3 because it feels very goo in hand, and looks and acts like a smartphone.
