After updating my S5 sm-g906s sound problems during phone calls appeared. After a few seconds of a call I can not hear my interlocutor but he hears me normally. This problem does not arise when I use viber or missenger.
I noticed that colleagues who have the same models (bought in Korea) have the same problem.

Broke my Galaxy S5 LTE-A (906S) Screen. Will international version S5 screen and touch work on it? Yes, I know the two screens are different but I am unable to find the original S5 LTE-A screen in my local market.
Also, I wonder if Galaxy S6 screen and touch fit S5 LTE-A? Both seem to have same specs as far as display is concerned.
What a shame they never released this with EU GSM bands - I had one, but couldn't live with the limited (near zero) 3G and 4G support in the UK. This was a truly fantastic compact, fully featured smartphone... and with Mokee/Cyanogenmod/LineageOS it was faster than a S7! Sadly this was the last 5" flagship that Samsung did, it's all been powerful phablets or stripped budget phones since this one...

Anonymous, 18 Aug 2017How can i register my fingerprint in order me to use it like security lockYes. You can register 2 fingerprints (I did index finger on each hand so I can unlock it with either hand).
S5 Front facing cam takes blurry images
BUT you can fix it.
use " mirror " app it's really better.... color is more vibrant.

EivanBarnes, 25 Feb 2017Larger Pixels = Better Quality image
More Pixels = More Noise, Probably worse image Quality... moreBased on samsung,its better to have a screen with more pixels than less.If you dont believe,go try use a 40" tv with 480×800 resolution.That solves the problem dear.

The phone overall a hit but it really lags in battery backups! Been using new battery for more than 3months and it still drains too fast! Samsung should have​ used battery optimization in marshmello.. Just because of the battery drainage the phone is useless now
I own this. Updated OS to marshmallow and now camera is way crappier than before. Front facing cam takes blurry images and rear cam takes grainy images. I hardly take pictures with my phone so it's not a problem for me. Just thought you should know. Apart from that, phone is cool for a daily driver
Adreno 420 is for graphics s2pid! amoled is the one providing pixels stupid!
