my phone screen not sensing it ceases for a while then it continue and again it repeat that problem what should i do to restore its normal working condition???
I have 2 of these now. The first I bought new whose lcd screen died after a year..which was replaced under warranty. Just over a year later the charge port died, bought a good quality used one.. that charge port died shortly after too.. I was able to fix it using contact cleaner spray.. however 4 months later it has died again.
Charge flex is $2part.. but involves removing the entire screen to fix.. :/
Ruben, 14 Aug 2020Can anyone tell me why the battery is horrendous on mine?Try to uninstal every application you can or go to (setings) backup and reset and press Factory data reset (remember to backup everything). I have 5gb free space on phone and battery is great.
Can anyone tell me why the battery is horrendous on mine?
the best phone ever. it can handle 20 apps in a row and it doesn't freeze while you use it. love it
It's 2020 and (in my opinion) there hasn't been any new smartphone with equal or better specifications.
1. This old device has a full HD OLED display whilst most new phones have an LCD, which has worse color rendering and lower efficiency.
2. Contrary to nearly all new phones, the S5 has a removable battery and double capacity batteries 5600mAh can be found online.
3. Even in 2020 not many phones support the 802.11ac WiFi standard. The S5 does.
4. It has an IR transmitter. Cable technicians will love this.
5. There's still a 3,5mm TRRS jack for audio
Ofcourse, the Galaxy S5 also has its downsides.
The USB/MHL connector wears out, and the cover breaks off quickly.
The original battery doesn't last a day anymore.
The internal memory is too small, with apps nowadays taking up hundreds of megabytes.
That said, thanks to LineageOS i've been able to upgrade to Android 9.
Partly thanks to a good screenprotector my S5 has survived tens of drops onto tile and concrete.
In conclusion, in 2020 this phone is becoming a bit slow and outdated, but having been a flagship device it has stood the test of time and surely will be a good choice for years to come.
I agree with above: Bought mine 2nd hand 5 years ago and it's still adequate for my needs. The downsides include large space taken up by unneeded apps that are not uninstallable, and incompatability with some apps with the current operating system.
Hello guys i wanna ask does differnt models have different display bcauz i want to put display of sm g900h display on sm g900t will it work or will get shot due to differnt model.
Edu, 06 Jul 2020Great phone, bought it (G900A) late 2014 as 2nd user, and still rocking as new. Uncommon sens... moreBattery is another downside...it actually deserves a 4000mah by design, not the meager 2800mah.
Great phone, bought it (G900A) late 2014 as 2nd user, and still rocking as new.
(1)Camera is great, but ain't so great, compared to some newer but lower end phones.
(2) GPS never put up more than 3m accuracy, although it claims to support A-GPS, GLONASS & Beidou (BDS).
Beidou is confirmed missing (not present).
My Overall Rating....90% great phone.
Samsung S5 has been purchased in USA during January 2018.Since then 3 batteries were replaced due to damage. I was vexed in replacing such batteries frequently.
How do I turn on my S5? Can't get it to come on.
