Nice phone to hold but must agree with other reviewers that it is slow and seems to constantly lag. It takes about 5 seconds to respond to every touch. It is very frustrating when you're trying to answer a call and the phone doesn't accept that you are swiping to answer call. Changed from Moto G (3rd Gen) but going back to it now as the S5 Neo is irritatingly slow.

In case of problem with you mobile you need to contact Samsung support. However in case of issues with your apps you need to contact the apps support. My only issue with the new Android 6.0 was that Google Mail app was not opening (the default Mail app was still working). After contacting Google app support the issue was fixed in 2 days. Just my 2 cents...
This phone is so freaking slow. I came from using an iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 by the way, but I had to buy a new unlocked phone as I was moving overseas. I thought of moving to Android to give a try and chose this phone as it is relatively new and is in the S lineup so I was assuming that this phone will perform well. But boy was I wrong. This is the slowest phone that I ever owned. Constantly lagging, camera takes about 5 seconds to open. Had to uninstall Facebook because it was really slow. Messenger sometimes does not open. The screen freezes. That said, I will never go back to Samsung again.
never had a problem with s5 neo works great for me, just glad I did not have a galaxy note 7
I love Samsung, my last four phones were Samsung. I've gotten my girlfriend Samsungs for her last two phones. That being said, the S5 Neo is the worst phone I've ever owned to date. I originally had issues with its "check cover" problem popping up randomly 8-10 times per day. Now it just happens randomly a few times per week. The phone freezes up and locks on a black screen or white screen whenever it is put through heavy demand from apps. The two main apps people use, instagram and snapchat, the camera WILL NOT FOCUS. 45 minutes can be spent on a varying degrees of depths and distances, and you will still not recieve a clear photo unless using the camera app. Buttons are phantom pressed when typing, and by far the most infuriating design flaw of all, is they have increased either the sensitivity or proximity of the "back" button to the actual screen. So every time you hit ENTER or SEND on everything from websites and emails to messages and phone calls, you will instead be hitting "back". This has quite literally wasted hours of my life, re-typing massive replies, or waiting for websites to respond only to find out the enter key was never tapped. Lastly, after the new update, they decided to put a uselessly unclever cover screen for you entire phone when it is locked, so opening up my phone is now an additional step past the unlocking screen. 1 extra tap every single time I open my phone may seem trivial to complain about, until you realize the average person checks their phone 80 times per day. I am beyond annoyed with the amount of unthought out issues with this phone and It may even be bad enough to permanently ruin my opinion on samsung.
Hello everyone. I got a samsung galaxy s5 neo sm-g903w and its locked to telus here in canada. Is there any suggestions from you to unlocked this . Because im not a telus subscriber so telus cannot unlocked it for me. Thanks everyone.
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2016my phone model number is: SM-G903W Canadian version contract with fido , so still no fm radio... moreThat is probably correct - I don't see FM Radio in the specifications for your Fido branded version of Galaxy S5 Neo on Fido web site. There is also official NO Answer in the Fido forums: http://forums.fido.ca/t5/forums/forumtopicpage/board-id/Smartphones/thread-id/26507
At normal Samsung Galaxy S5 Neo the Radio app is pre-installed and can not be uninstalled. You may double checkup for the Radio app at Settings>Applications>Applications Manager.
It is probably possible to install some FM Radio apk from the XDA developers forum:

Anonymous, 18 Aug 2016Should I get this or iPhone 5s?Get the neo it's great! And join the fight to help prevent apple from turning us all into limited capability phone drones 😀
[deleted post]Dude fix your phone. My Neo works fantastic and experiences none of the troubles you are having. Maybe get some of your 16 gigs back my expanding memory with a card a removing media from the drive. Otherwise take it in and get it fixed. It's no s7 but mine and everyone I've talked to really enjoys this $0 phone.
Sure beats up my iphone5😉
