The last update I received for my S5 (February patch) was a cool one. It cleaned up my storage. Before the update, 7.60GB storage space was used up. After the update it went down from 7.60GB to 7.13GB. That's basically a 500MB trim. All of my personal files were still in tact so I have to commend Samsung for doing a wonderful job with these updates.
Each update seems to improve the device better whether it be in speed or more storage not to mention secure the device against the latest threats. It's a win win situation any way you look at it.

It's funny how the basically three year old S5 features 4k 2160p video recording and it's just now most of the competition is catching up. For example, the Huawei P10 flagship which just got released in this month is the first in the P series line to have 4K video recording. It took Huawei three years to catch up Samsung in the video recording department. I have always said that the Galaxy S lead by example. The Galaxy S always contains more features than the average consumer needs which is a good thing anyway you look at it.

Honestly I haven't seen anything that surpasses the S5 yet. I'm just not impressed with the current crop of smartphones. If a good upgrade comes along that I plan on getting, I will be sure to let you know but currently a lot of people say the S5 is still currently the best.

AnonD-632062, 20 Feb 2017Funny thing is Mr. Trump does actually use a Samsung Galaxy (although it's a S3)! :PYou know I read several reports from official news sources that he uses an Android smartphone but neither of these sources stated the make or model. Thanks for shedding some light on the topic.
AnonD-1385, 14 Feb 2017You sound like Donald Trump.Funny thing is Mr. Trump does actually use a Samsung Galaxy (although it's a S3)! :P
It's funny how a lot of people criticised the S5 before it's initial release and after it's release. Some competing manufacturers said the back of the S5 looked like a big band-aid among other things. I found myself criticising it too mainly for the SAR rating until I got my very own which had a more acceptable SAR rating. All in all despite the criticisms the S5 turned out to be the best Galaxy S to date. It's the last of the series with a removable battery and the ONLY model with USB 3.0 and the list goes on. I see many persons out there begging Samsung to bring back certain features the S5 has. I'm a proud owner of a Galaxy S5.
