Ezinna Jerry, 14 Apr 2017How do you make your battery last? Mine leaves 100% to 80% or less in just 10 minutes! And the... moreTo Ezinna Jerry:
If you are using Marshmallow (which I am) go to the BATTERY menu and activate DOZE mode. Turn on doze for all the apps, files and processes. Everything will be in a long list. While you are in the battery menu go to the POWER SAVING option and select ALWAYS SAVE POWER for all the applications in that list.
Secondly turn off automatic updates from the Playstore. Turn of all the motion gestures and sensors. Turn off Wi-Fi, Data, Bluetooth and any other radio you aren't using like NFC etc. Disable things like My Magazine/Flipboard, S-Voice and other stuff if you don't use. By the way, disabling S-Voice will give you faster response when using the Home button. In Wi-Fi mode go to advance settings and disable Wi-Fi always on when sleeping. Set it to never. Finally set your screen brightness to the absolute minimum which is comfortable to your eye.
You can search around for other enabled things that you don't use and turn them off. For instance, if you don't use 3G because you live on Wi-Fi like me then go to the NETWORK menu in the main SETTINGS and change it from WDCMA/GSM to GSM ONLY. I gave you a dozen tips. Please keep me posted and tell me if you see a difference in battery life. On average I get 5-7 minutes on average while browsing on Wi-Fi using the proprietary web browser...not Google Chrome, the other built in browser called Internet. For the record I leave one motion sensor on and that's palm swipe to capture. Please let me know the outcome.

Can you share a photo so we can see the condition? Also what's the built in storage capacity and what G900 version is it?
For those who has battery life issue (drains very fast). Try to remove your microSD card. This helped me on my old galaxy s4. I replaced it with another one - works perfect now. Hope this helps you as well. Good Luck !

Samsung, 12 Apr 2017Of course, it's not a flagship since who knows when...But at around 200 €/£ is still better than a lot of more recent mobiles at the same price range.

The battery label sticker below the battery shows 1800 mAh for the G900H (octa-core) while it shows 1500 mAh for the G900F (quad- core). Anybody knows why?
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.
Mudassar, 06 Apr 2017My S5 not pick the charger but some time pik when my mobile is off then the hazard symbol is ... moreMudassar, is your USB port still covered by the plastic cover? If not, have a look and use a toothpick, for example, to clean it with if you see something in there.
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
