This thing is a straight beast, with that 2.5GHz quad core processor, once I custom recovery fflashed, custom rom and kernel, unlocked native hotspot, etc boot time is 3 secs roughly, and booting into Download/Recovery is virtually isntant, you no sooner press the buttons to boot, and poooof youre there. Game runs Vendetta Online at a solid 60fps, top notch solid rig of a phone. Would recommend for the pricing! Upgraded from a Galaxy S3
Thanks for some of the negative comments on the S5 I was about to change phone now I will consider.....phwee...!!!!

kunhussein, 01 Sep 2014no dude it is not , the sony xperia z2 battery is better than that of s5S5 has a better implementation of power saving. Stamina mode is not at all close to samsungs ultra power saving mode.
Moreover the battery is removable. Its easy to just swap out a dead battery rather than hunting for a plugpoint in a not so familiar location.
veteater, 02 Sep 2014Neither. They both aren't roo good. M8 or wait for moto x+1Cant you read. He wants a choice between note 3 and s5!!! Not your moto crap. Moto has always been a crappy company.

I also had the location settings set to tell me estimated journey to home/work time etc. I've since turned this off too as I think that may also have been using my battery (My iPhone 5 didn't seem to use too much when doing this though so maybe it wasn't this?).
Are there any apps to see where my battery is being used?

Hi all, I have a slight issue with regards to the battery life on the S5.
Usage is extremely high, the battery runs down very quickly.
I had 40% last night as I went to bed but when I woke up only had 11% left. Not sure how I can check which apps are using my battery-is that possible to find out?
CRAP - PURE CRAP!
Had an LG Optima G and decided to upgrade. This is no upgrade, this is a toy, designed with bloatware and kid's game features.
Leaves everything open. PayPal app will NOT run properly on this device with secondary authentication - major security issue.
Do NOT like their fingerprint app and the fact that it ties to a cloud account. Major SECURITY FLAWS there.
Too many games and bloatware options which keep forcing themselves on the user.
Taking it BACK and RETURNING IT! Never again!
