Still holding on to my S5 even though I have a Huawei P9 Plus. I don't ever want to give up my S5.
MY IR BLASTER or universal remote Sensor (for controlling electronic ) is not working and that is one of my main reason I went for this phone. Can it be replaced??? Or is it on board ?
I checked the sensor with another phone's camera and the light is not blinking as it use to do on my Samsung s4.
I need your urgent help please.

I am a Samsung Galaxy S5 & Note 4 fan. Both of these have were the last ones to have removable batteries & removable memory. This lets me always be able to use them. Batteries eventually wear out & won't charge anymore. But these phones are technically here forever -- due to their removable factors.
Also, there is an application that lets you take a picture of your self while taking a pic of something else i.e. a Sunset, a cloud group, being with friends etc. That app is no longer available in the later phones. I do have a Note 8 via unique circumstances. App is not available. The work arounds are not my preference although interesting.

A friend lent me his S5. Love this phone, it's great. Owned 5 different Samsung models , Huawei, Sony & Nokia before but this one is the best . So I bought a new S5!
I have used S5 for almost 3 years it is duos/2 sims got it at Abu Dhabi and 4G I am so happy with video cam in 4k Now I also have Oppo F5 /32 with 20 mp for selfie both devices give me fast browsing but F5 is faster due to its 4gb ram which antutu benchmark more than 77000 and S5 only 60000

There was an article about the S5 on Android Authority yesterday, quite a surprise. Here's a few excerpts:
"The Samsung Galaxy S5 is a phone close to my heart. Android Authority is your cutting edge guide to the latest Android devices, but it doesnÂ’t mean we canÂ’t get a bit sentimental now and again."
"I admit itÂ’s strange, but I love this phone. ThereÂ’s one dutifully sitting on the desk next to me right now. When the S8 came out, I stuck with the S5. When I had it stolen in South America, I sourced a new one in the next city. ItÂ’s the phone for me.
Ok itÂ’s not going to give you the mind-blowing levels of functionality that the new S9 can boast, but it still holds its own in most of the metrics."
"What I love about the Galaxy S5 is that it is the last phone in the Samsung S range to have a removable battery. The Galaxy S6 relented to the Apple model and brought in a glass back, so you have to stand by and watch as your battery deteriorates.
Not me. I havenÂ’t used a phone charger for years. When the battery runs low I just replace it with a spare, which cost about $8 each. Straight away youÂ’re back to 100%. Going out for the day? Pop a spare or two in your pocket. Enjoy a wry smile as your friends crouch in the corner of the bar next to a power outlet."
They also include a link where you can buy it for less than $200 new (it was $664), and I guess they get a share from the sales, but it's still nice to see a well known website say something good about your old but awesome phone. :-)
fjo, 30 Mar 2018You're so right this phone is rock solid, and fast with LOSThis device should update to 7.0..shame on samsung to leave a great phone to updates..enough to s5..even buy s8 or s9..after 3 years samsung wouldn't update again..
