Probably the best Phone Samsung ever made. You'll get a good two days use out of the battery, and it's the last phone they made that has a replaceable battery. Factory spares are less then 8 dollars on Amazon. Too easy...
I've been in cell phones literally since they first came out in 82. My first smartphone was a Galaxy S-3 and I didn't like it. I couldn't text on it because it was too sensitive. This phone was the first to fix that.
The S-5 is so impressive I replaced my entire family with them and even keep spares and have needed one. My wife dropped hers on concrete and cracked the screen.
If you compare specs even to the new S-8, this phone is still running easily with it. Highly recommended.
I have a S5 its battery cant last long than 1hr I'm using the 4g data and im just browsing facebook with dim light. and it doesnt last long though I bought a spare battery but its still not enough
I had my S5 since May 2014. Not planing to get a new one any time soon, still running strong. Battery was changed about 6 months ago, it's not great, but there is a usb plug everywhere this days.
Could anyone tell us what is the best version of Android for the S5? I run Lollipop (5.0)

I have been using my S5 since October 2014 and it still works fine. Do S5 users recommend updating it from Kitkat to Lollipop? Is the Marshmallow update available already in the Philippines?

I can be 99.9& sure they are NOT genuine batteries, only Samsung credited partners get genuine parts, like where I work for example. S5 and Note 4's have always had funny batteries, more noticeable in the Note 4 where below 40% the handset just turns off. Buy genuine or don't both at all. Its also very dangerous using fake batteries, lithium is nasty stuff.

I have all the latest updates, but the first time I noticed it was when the winter came and I just came home with a cold phone. Before that, it would only flicker at really low brightness that I wasn't even using. For example, if it warms up the problem is not so big, so I assume it has something to do with the weather. Maybe I'm wrong, but we'll see when the winter goes away.

A lot of people report the same problem, I've seen conversations about it, and tried some advice, but nothing worked. So I'm just using higher brightness during the day and EyeFilter for the evening (similar to Flux, Screen Filter, Red Moon, Blue Light Filter, etc).

I've taken my entire family of 4 phones to S5s since I left Sprint and went to T-Mobile.
I chose these because the S6, (which was the phone at the time) had a permanent battery that couldn't be changed, and a wrap around screen that couldn't be protected. My wife's S5 is on it's third battery and they only cost 7 bucks factory at Amazon. She uses it for everything. Mine is still on it's first battery because I don't.
They are great phones and the only "improvement" with the new phones is in the camera sections that the S5 already had. And a wrap around screen that nothing can protect.
I have 4 of these running since the S6, all referbs, and we've only broken one. I keep two extras. The last one I bought was 123 bucks and preinstalled with Marshmallow. Nice.
