The S5 is said to be a very strong smartphone from the get-go but since week I saw something on Youtube which really surprised me. An ultimate water test was done on the S5, first in a pool for 1 hour which it easily passed. Then it was placed in a washing machine.
Check out the ultimate S5 water test here:

I personally find it a waste of time as after registering print, or either takes numerous swipes to recognise print or doesn't recognise it at all and I have to enter the pin code. Time consuming! I haven't bothered to use fingerprint for purchasing anything.
Deepu Rao, 19 Dec 2014Hello Friends i want to get some information about galaxy s5 (octa core) version, which is ava... moreHi. I find that it does get hot when moving files around between folders ie. from device memory (32gig) to my SanDisk (32gig) memory card or when on Internet. I don't play games so I can't comment on that. Memory card has no influence on charging time or hanging. Only time phone is slow is when searching on help menu.
The S5 is an outstanding smartphone from the smooth operation to the camera (camera is really outstanding) but I have one little gripe, the display. Yes it looks sharp and vibrant but the trouble is I have a S2 as well. The colours on the S2 looks more vivid, more colorful...I guess due to it having a Super AMOLED Plus screen (only member of the Galaxy S family to have it). Even with the S2's resolution being less than HD, I still feel it over the S5 Full HD screen. I have put both phones side by side and gone through the various display modes and in each mode viewing the same image/same video clip and the S2 looks more vivid to me. I know the S5 screen is a better overall screen but you can see the difference between the S2 RGB compared to the S5 pentile matrix.
Does anybody else share the same view as me? Is anybody else feeling the S2 screen over the S5?
Since lollipop is compatible with 64 bit processor it is compatible with snapdragon 801 processor and not the exynos which is 32 bit so let's wait for few weeks till Samsung releases the update it as already rollout in Korea Poland Malaysia and russia for LTE dual Sim version and SM-G900F.THere are few bugs that s5 lollipop user experiences such as fb crashes finger scanners not working properly and phone stands for only 6-7 hrs due to white material design and newly updated TouchWiz but Google ang Samsung are trying to fix in last two update.Currently Google has released 5.0.2 for nexus device And we had to hope that they better fix the bug.so don't panic and wait for few weeks or months for Samsung that they would release a better bug fixed update for SM-900H . Now it has started to rollout for U.S carriers such as sprint,version and other carriers.

Even when I play big games like dead trigger 2, modern combat 5. The phone works very well. Its processing speed is faster than Quad core snapdragon version. Not the same in terms of graphics. Quad core version is 60 percent faster than it in term of graphics and shader performance.
dope, 09 Dec 2014lollipop is based on 64bit not 32bit. so 2gb ram will not support lollipop. you need to have 4... moreA 64-bit operating system does not require 4+ GB of RAM. The advantage of 64-bit vs 32-bit is simply that 32-bit operating systems can use no more than 3.5 GB of RAM, while 64-bit can use (in theory) Terrabytes of RAM. Lollipop will be released for all versions of the Galaxy S5 eventually.
Many persons think that the S5 no longer has a capacitive menu button (I also thought so too when I first saw a live demo display model in a store) but it's still there under the quiet. Simply hold down the multitask capacitive button until the menu pops up. Holding it down between 1.5 - 2 seconds shows the menu options. I realised this on the very first day that I used my brand new S5.
