i have samsung s5 SM-900L
it has updated on 19- aprail -2014.
after update gyro stopped working,
screen rotation suddenly stopped.
and camera is inverted at angle of 180 degree.
its bad news for all.
with updated of4.4.2 note 3 s4 and nexus 7 all have same problem
I have had it for a few days now.
I really love the display.
Great batterylife and it also charges from empty to full in less than two hours with included 2A charger.
The rough back makes in stay in the hand and not slip away.
As with all phones with big displays you will need two hands for many/most operations.
Not much bloatware installed.
The camera is great (the pics I have taken so far).
In automode (only one I tested so far) it takes about 1.5 secounds from you press the button till it snaps the photo. (It focuses, stabilises and stuff I guess).
Good sound regarding phonecalls and music.
bam, 19 Apr 2014have you improved the battery problems? main problem of samsung
The batterylife is really good in the Samsung Galaxy S5!
Not only that, it's shipped with a 2A charger which charges the battery from empty to full in less than two hours.
I have had a Samsung Galaxy S3 earlier and that did not have good battery life.
I also recently had an iPhone 5 which also did not have good battery life.

I loose 1... moreI am fully charge at 5pm and i put it in a desk to watch TV and at 11pm i started using my S5 at 98% battery reamining and using only mobile data up to 5AM my remaining battery is 10%,is it normal for S5 the battery consumption?i thought and based on the specification Web browsing is estimated 10hours and talk time 21 hours,Video Playback is 12hours and standby 16.2days(390hours)i am confuse right now because its only 6hours browsing on mine.
assassin, 19 Apr 2014Thank you anonymous,is it normal for S5 that i charged my S5 and after fully charge at 5pm i p... moreAs someone said, try to see if it isn't fb doing that. I don't use FB. Try to kill the app each time or just install "juice defender" app so that it regulates access to data. Your phone's battery shouldn't be draining so fastly
AnonD-255600, 19 Apr 2014Thank you! Now, the thing here is that I´m wondering, if buying the S4 or the S5?Math is simple there :
owner of S4 : stick to it until next Galaxy version. S4 is still great, unless you have a special deal or money isn't a problem at all.
owned of none : go for S5 since it's the newest, offers more, better performance and it will be supported longer for updates.
NIko, 19 Apr 2014Does Gear fit come along with this???No you have to buy it separately or some stores offer phone + gear pack
advice, 19 Apr 2014the s5 is better but if you are satisfied with s4 why the change?Thank you! Now, the thing here is that I´m wondering, if buying the S4 or the S5?
Can anyone please tell me how much time the S5 takes to charge from 0 to 100?
AnonD-255600, 19 Apr 2014So, what´s better, stick with S4 or upgrade to S5?Stick

AnonD-205005, 19 Apr 2014Gaming is not a problem. The main problem is some android became slower after some days. Just ... moreS5 Exynos version doesn't have 4G so go for S5 Snapdragon if you want 4G.
advice, 19 Apr 2014the exynos is better for gaming,it can run games at higher frame rates. Gaming is not a problem. The main problem is some android became slower after some days. Just make me sure exynos version will not slow. And i also need 4G. Now tell me which one i should buy.
AnonD-205005, 19 Apr 2014Gaming is not a problem. The main problem is some android became slower after some days. Just ... morethe slowness that some people might notice after a period of time is not related to the processor,it is related to the running apps and downloaded apps especially the incompatible ones ,in general every android phone need to be rebooted once daily to keep it running fast,if that was not enough u might need to back up and factory reset and clearing the cache .
regarding the 4g, as someone answered the snapdragon is your choice.
