Bought a new galaxy 5 7 days ago. When I phoned people could not hear the ring tone or the person answering. Vodacom told me to switch off the phone and restart every time it did this as there was a glitch in the software!What a good reference for a very expensive phone! Very disappointed with this phone and the back-up service in SA

I was referred to the USB cable.Yeah that's right, USB v3.0 cable is not a problem.
It is available not only in Amazon, it is in every mobile phone stores at very cheap price.
So it should not be a big problem since the unit charging port supports USB v3.0.
Very very nice look! The look of gs5 brings us to victorian edge. Not sutable for today. No lags? What the... R u kidding me?
Battery life not bad. If u want to use it a day, u have to start charging at yesterday and to fully charge, u need to wait a half of a day.
Very very fast. My god. What a fast phone. Im still in start page.
Very easy to handle it. My gs5 felt down 2 times in this week.
Very easy to use by one hand. So im holding it by rite hand and operating it using left.
Just like a coumputer! U can do everything on it! Very happy to say. After my experiances, i only using it for txting and calling. Im using my pc back.
Im laying? Oky go head , buy it , then cry like me! Good luck! (its too long. Isnt it?)
Tcool, 11 Jul 2014You're holding a fake one.
It's supposed to be micro USB v3.0 (MHL 2.1), USB On-the-go, USB.He was telling about the USB cord that was supplied with the phone. In many regions, Samsung is supplying the regular USB 2.0 cable.
But yeah, the 3.0 cable is available at dirt cheap prices at Amazon.
This phone helped rescue my son and I from a remote area in Virginia.
On the 4th of July, my son and I rented a canoe to do some whitewater. I decided to bring my s5. I put it in my pocket and forgot about it. 3/4 through the trip we flipped the canoe in a set of class 3 rapids. The water pinned me between the canoe and a rock. I was under water for about a minute, while my son and I attempted to free me from the canoe.We where successful. We then continued to float down the river, through the rapids,without the boat, for several hundred feet. We lost everything, but did eventually recover our stuff; except for my glasses. We both had minor injuries and due to the fact I was unable to read the river without my glasses, we decided it would be best to just find a place to get out.
The phone was under water, in the rapids, for several minutes. We eventually made it to a road. I reached into my pocket, pulled out the phone,and to my surprise the phone worked. I called 911 and we where picked up within the hour.

I'm using this for 2weeks, touchwiz is a little slow, but the display, battery, net speed, gaming and overall its good enough at 34k range. The backcover is much better to grip, those who say its cheap actually even they use plastic case for their mob, ip67 is much useful, moreover its a reliable mob.. feeling good to hv it.

AnonD-114803, 09 Jul 2014If u have octa core s5 then download CPU-Z app from play store and run it. It will show 8 core... moreIn India Octa core is previous 5420 processor at 1.9Ghz+1.3 ghz. Samsung site classify this processor as Exynos 5420. 5420 doesn't has HMP and hence good things coming from Exynos 5422 are not available in India.
Where are the music voice control settings? I used them on my s3 to skip tracks whilst in the shower but would also like to do the same on s5 but can only find the camera ones in the camera settings...thanks if you can enlighten me on this matter...
Holding in my hand with my S3 on the table...awesome! one disappointing matter...Micro-USB2 instead of Micro-USB3!

What are you talking about?
AnonD-114803, 10 Jul 2014Yahhh.. im posting this comments after watching just moto e. Moto e costs 1/7th of s5 but its ... moreYep, that's what I meant. Imagine the feeling when a device is performing better at 1/7th price.
Yeah, agree about the camera, in daylight it does take great photos.
