I'm not a fan of this phone. I'm not attached to my phone 24/7 but I do use it a lot, and this phone cannot handle it. Granted it is 5 years old, here are the issues I experience:
Battery drains quickly, very little storage space, texts take a long time to load, very slow in general, running apps overheats the phone, charging port does not hold the charger well and falls out easily, GPS does not work, and screen light does weird blinking/colors if on the lowest brightness setting.
All that being said, I think someone who uses their phone very, very lightly would like it. It's not a luxury phone but it gets the job done; it's reliable and sturdy, just not cut out for how much I want to use it. If you want a nice phone just to text, call, and maybe occasionally look something up online, then this is great for you.

Diggle, 24 Oct 2019Hey is galaxy s5 really that good cause I want to buy oneIf 2 GB is enough for you, and you are willing to do some basic maintenance (cleaning the cache, using lighter apps, maybe freezing a few unneeded apps), go for it. Mine is 4.5 years old and still going strong, and totally reliable. I reboot it maybe once a month just to refresh it a little.

xyz, 09 Aug 2019battery life very poor. True. Can Easy Replace New Battery & It's Cheap......... (New Battery, Root It "Official Lineage OS" Or Stock Android Marshmallow (Still Usable).....
I'm using this phone for 3 years by now and it works fine for me
i'm running Leanage OS 15 with Android 8.1
It's very smooth & powerful .
the only issue is the battery life , but you can use a powerbank .
I know powerbanks often are annoying, but use a powerbank!
KP, 28 Jun 2019I'm still using the S5 mid-2019 daily, running LineageOS on Android 9. An excellent phone. The... moreMe too, on my third battery. I haven't changed because all new phones have fixed batteries so I can't change batteries easily.
