The good thing about these older handsets (especially the S5) is they are cheap, has most of the features of modern phones (like a fingerprint reader) has USB 3 (like the Note 3) and you can connect it to a TV with an MHL cable. I paid £60 (US $83) for it and apart from a few scratches on the screen It's a 8 out of 10 for the rest of it.
Is it still worth getting? four yrs later or go for a newer Phone? Mainly use my phone for facebook, browsing and gaming-thanks

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.
