@Original-Jamaican, Nice to know, from your elaborated experience I think I will settle my quarrel with this 5.0 firmware update.
I hope this marshmallow update is for real, and not just a vapor ware.
Can you tell me the late the 'kernel version date' and 'SE for Android' dates I want to see if I'm on the latest, mine are : Monday April 20 2015 for the kernel version date and Friday 17 July 2015 for the SE for Android date.Thank much.

It's nice to know that I inspire you to use a similar nickname. Big up. My nickname dates back to the 90s.
I got my S5 brand new out of the box running KitKat October last year. As a new phone the battery lasted long. On average it would take 10 minutes before the battery would lose 1% while browsing the internet on Wi-Fi.
In August that time decreased to around 3 minutes. I upgraded to Lollipop shortly after and on average the time before losing a percent has increased between 5-6 minutes. That's how I know Lollipop gives gives good battery life.
Bought my Galaxy s5 GM 900h official lollipop on this 27 of November, so far it has been the best of device I've had coming from an Exynos 4412 (galaxy s3) I think the octa-core variant is quiet powerful despite what others are saying about it's quad core variant.I believe the battery life was better in kit kat (even though my was originally in 5.0) because I can see long battery life in 5.0 so this convinces me that kit kat was a bit better.Regarding performance and battery life I always keep my in 'Power saving' mode and get speedy performance, I will recommend to uncheck the 'screen output' in the power saving mode to get be able to get a normal brightness production instead of the low screen brightness in give you.This machine whiles in power saving mode not only gives you speedy performance but also a better battery (let's hope marshmallow can reduce the total power consumption of the chipset to be able to UNLEASH THE 5422.Whats up Original-Jamacian. :-)

due to phone bloatware apps
only solution is to root your mobile and uninstall crap apps
*** rooting the device may break your warranty***
Review after 1 year of using S5 g900h octa-core version ( kitkat 4.4.2 ):
* Intially phone used to heat up to 40°c after rooting mobile it stays between 34°to 35°c
* Can add more apps in ultra power saving mode after rooting
* Battery lasts whole day and drops 2% in night
* Can play all games without any lag after rooting and removing bloatware
* Good battery life
* IP67 :-)
* Can use multiple apps in UPSM mode
* Downgraded from lollipop 5.0 to kitkat 4.4.2 ( Kitkat is better than lollipop )
* Lollipop is a big con since rooting is not available.

my SM-G900H is very good mobile but it doesn't have memory card recovery system.
my phone version is 4.4.2
what is it reason?
Please reply me??????
I am from India and I am using Samsung Galaxy S5 Octa-core (SM-G900H). Its pretty good phone, very good hardware performance. I have 2 issues with the phone. (1) Heating problem while sending/receiving big files over wifi/shareit. (2) Although I accept that Lollipop 5.0 is one of the best stable OS on Galaxy S5 considering other smartphones running on Lollipop 5.0, but the main problem of Lollipop 5.0 is that I can't move app to SD Card. All apps by default installed on phone memory which certainly decreases the phone memory because some apps have huge data. I just want to know whether Lollipop 5.1 also have same issue ? When Android Marshmallow is coming to S5 in India ? Please answer if you have the answer. Thanks.
Samsung Galaxy S5 :
1) Awesome Camera
2) Super Battery....almost 9 hours of Internet browsing, watching videos online. Only 1% waste over night.
3) Stunning display colors.
4) Water & Dust Proof
5) Matt finish back cover is excellent for grip on hands unlike S6, which slips.
6) Finger print scanner & lots of other sensors like pulse rate,stress sensor etc.
1) Over-heating while sending / receiving files big files over wifi.
2) Can't move apps to SD Card.
Gamers are going to love this feedback.
My S5 is running Lollipop 5.0. It's on power saving mode with with background data restriction enabled. I downloaded the brand new Dead Effect 2 which was released a few days ago, from the Playstore. In reading the comments from others who dowloaded it from the Playstore reviews, a few persons said it crashed or wouldn't load etc. especially if the maxed out the graphics/3D settings due to hardware limitation on their phones...People with HTC flagships like the One M8 etc. complained a lot!!!
All of the CPU-cores on my S5 are running at 500MHZ which means it's running at less than half the original clockspeed due to the power saving mode with the 'limit CPU speed' enabled. I was suprised at how smooth the game runs even with all the graphics settings maxed out. They are all on Extreme etc. I have experienced no lagging, no hang-ups, no crashing and no funny behaviour whatsoever which speaks volumes about the power of the Galaxy S5. A friend of mine who is running Dead Effect 2 on iOS has to set his graphics/3D settings to medium otherwise the game will crash. The S5 is a POWERHOUSE even if it doesn't seem that way at times.
