my s5 neo is still going strong and has android 7 (i'm in Canada) just wanted to add to the info in the thread.
I'm trying to decide if I want to change to the galaxy j3 2018 though, it wouldnt cost anything for me but they seem like very similar phones
S5 Neo with Android Nougat 7.0. When I am using the external phone speaker (the one in the back) during calls the other people complain about hearing an echo every time they talk, as if someone repeats what they are saying. No issue when I use the headset or the ear speaker. For me I hear them clear, the echo is just on their side. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks.
Hi there for whoever may be reading this. This phone isn't entirely capable with Nougat like this website says. Only certain countries were granted with Nougat for this phone. Country models like Australia, Europe, New Zealand, and England were granted with Nougat and all models from those countries are upgradable to Nougat but countries like America, China, Japan, and Canada did not, unfortunately receive Nougat for their models :(

Anonymous, 31 May 2019Did the european model get android 7.0?As of 06 July 2019 my S5 Neo is still on Android 6 [UK]
It's still a useable phone as of June 2019 surprisingly, but don't expect to play games with high specs on it.
I'm having problems with the ringtone volume. It's.not loud. Yes i went to my volume options.
Has anyone in the USA bought the canadian version and successfully updated to 7.0 nougat?

Anonymous, 16 Sep 2018This phone was horrible until the Android 7 update. But it still has a bad batteryProbably you have installed apps that drain too muh battery, i have this phone since the release and have not changed the battery, even it degraded after so many years. It can hold up on normal social media apps, but if you are gamer you should not even complain about this
Galaxy S5 Neo User , 03 Feb 2019Is this still a good phone in 2019? Why is it so expensive used when Mi a2 Lite is so cheap br... moreBecause this is an overall mid-range beast. While skme phines at this prive may have better processor, they will lack vamera or display. S5 Neo is an overall phone, not intended for one purpose only
Macbeth, 22 Dec 2018Does this phone have a fingerprint scanner?The S5 Neo includes a heart rate scanner on the back to check your heartbeats through the Samsung Health app, but it cannot be used as a fingerprint security option.

3000mAh would be enough for this,but hey,nothing is perfect,except S5/Neo.
