I bought a used 4G version 3 days ago, and so far, I am not that impressed with it as I thought I would be. This is my first premium android phone, and from what I heard, S5 should be the best option for this price range.
I noticed that the battery runs out pretty quick with medium use of the phone. But that's not that big issue as the CAMERA! One of the main reasons why I choose the S5 is because I heard it has one of the best cameras around.
The pictures I took were kind of blurry, dark (compared to very good pics that LG G2 is making in low light- the S5 pics were pretty dark and grained, even the night detection and HDR mode aren't of much help!). I don't know is it a problem with this device or all Galaxy S5 users are experiencing this problem??!
The second problem with the camera occurs when I download camera EFFECTS (ex. UCam:Fresh Filter, or any other filter). When I try to apply it, I get Warning: MediaServer failed. Camera needs restart. ....and then camera crashes!! So, I can't use any of downloadable effects! Does anyone have any idea what is going on?
I have Android 5.0, if that could be a potential cause of bugs.
AnonD-504755, 21 Feb 2016Should I buy s5 or sony Z3 ..help please i need ur opinionsOf course z3! Best for gaming . Best battery life and better than touchwiz samsung.
Samsung should consider adding manual feature in its camera build with new updates.. really dissapointed with the same camera ui and facilities with the lollipop update..
I just acquired a used GS5. This is my first smartphone with capacitive buttons and I often find myself freaking out because on screen navigation bar is missing :D
it's best ever smart phone in samsung I was used for 1.5 years battery life amassing camera clarity not even hanging
Bizarre89, 11 Feb 2016I used to love this phone so much in the beginning, but I haven't even finished paying it off ... moreIm using my s5 very well even if there's 6 apps opened .. no problem at all .. maybe the that you have , have a factory defect ..
Did S5 lags in using with lolipop during multi tasking or while playing high end games like asphalt 8(at highest graphics)...
still there is a solution.,... actually the hardwRE OF s5 is very very good.. both octa and quad.. but samsung's touchwiz android is full of features , not good for speed.. so i recommend you to try cyanogen modded android 6.0.. it works like charm, every features is there, but not bloatware, and high graphical touchwiz.. but very fast.. just like the one plus series,
Hey guys today I test my s5 mobile in water but I lost my phone this not good for me 😢

I HIGHLY recommend this phone. It is easy to use, and it's really light and really nice. A lot of people have issues with the thumb print lock because you have to have your finger the same way every time, but I love it because I've figured out the trick! My boyfriend and mom both have the s5 as well and they both love it!
I used to love this phone so much in the beginning, but I haven't even finished paying it off and it's trash...An enormous lag, can't have more than 2 apps on at the same time, I did factory resets, wiped cache, got a 64Gb memory card..nothing helps. $700 for a year...
