In normal use (LTE or Wifi permanently) - what is the average time of the battery - mine is about 6 hours. Is this normal ?
ALI, 30 Jan 2018how can i unable volte in this phone?in order to activate or get the VOLT on it you will need a custom ROM, and a custom KERNEL to go with it, you can look it up in the XDA FORUM for S5 ... its a bit advanced but you will be totally satisfied after even with the system option that is very similar to the S8 with nougat + you will get some battery life and the VOLT Option as well

Anonymous, 05 Jan 2018Front camera is just bad :'(( plus it cant focus in the low light concentration 😑 ... moreYes the front camera on the S5 is a let down, its 2Mp compared to primary camera which is 16MP. I'd suggest getting the A5 which is only slightly more, it has 16MP on both front and back.

Indian, 14 Jan 2018Galaxy S5 Main Problem Is Battery, No VO LTE, No Dual Sim N No New Themes ..... Even If U Rep... moreI flashed my old S5 with lineage OS (Android 7.1.2), threw a new battery in and it is like a new phone. Fast and responsive, the camera immediately takes a photo no matter the lighting conditions, the battery doesn't rapidly drain. I'm pretty sure Samsung deliberately sabotaged this phone with an update once the new ones came out.
Also it is possible to unlock every LTE band on this phone once you have loaded a custom rom and rooted it.
Indian, 14 Jan 2018Galaxy S5 Main Problem Is Battery, No VO LTE, No Dual Sim N No New Themes ..... Even If U Rep... more1. Of course people will buy it second-hand, it's an old phone and not available as new any more. The phones you mention are 2-3 times more expensive. Pointless argument.
2. Call quality is great, no need for VOLTE. Also, you can talk for free using Skype, Messenger, etc, etc. Voice calls are a secondary function.
3. Themes? It's an old TouchWiz with 4 icons in a row, themes wouldn't make it better. Even if you change the theme, the icons stay - but I got Nova Launcher on sale and don't care about themes. Every icon and every element is the way I want it.
4. Dual SIM? Not many flagships have that, and I don't know anyone who uses that anyway. One phone bill is enough.
5. Battery life? 4-5 hours not enough? Do you live on your phone? If you need more, buy a computer. ;-)
