I have used this fantastic cellphone for six months. I'm really happy with my Phone.I recived Android 6 at first day . I've Played Modern combat 4 and 5 also Asphalt 8 . IT plays those heavy games like piece of cake . It works as well as s6 und s7 but just with different Name and nice Price. There are negative comments below. But it is not acceptable because their device has Problem not all. Also they can use Garantie if they don't use Smuggled phone.
Arslan, 25 Jul 2016Well pokemon is still a new release so maybe with updates it will fix certain bugs and lags...... moreI played Pokémon go with my S4 for a week and never had any issues. 1 day with my s5 neo and I want to bring the phone back
It's not the App, it's the phone.
I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this with a cell phone. On may 10 2016 I purchased a Samsung S5 Neo, I had trouble talking to people because sound quality was not the best but I could live with that. In early july it was charging on the counter, I picked it up, put it in my sweater pocket and went to my car, when I removed it the screen under the glass screen was cracked....bad. I did not drop it or lean against anything and can not figure out why this happened. I have contacted Samsung and am basically brushed off. I am not a child, I know the value of a dollar and am still paying on this phone. I simply want to know what caused this as there is no physical damage anywhere on this phone outside of the inner screen. I have had Samsung phones in the past and liked the product but the customer service sucks! I will not buy from them again and I will advise others to stay clear of their products.

Problema. Let me know how to get it to stop warning about how to put the back cover on properly... it's very frustrating that it does that almost every time I unlock my phone.

I have the s5 neo and in gaming performance in some games like pokemon go and real racing 3 is quite bad even with power saving off. Can someone tell me if this can be a defect or everyone have this kind of problem in performance please thanks.
Anonymous, 23 Jun 2016OMG, Did you know that the S5 Neo has Air Gesture sensor?!?!?

Anonymous, 10 Jul 2016I am from croatia and my s5 neo is still 5.1.1I don t know how it s possible . I m from Albania and i have it marshmallow since June.
Minimedia, 18 Jul 2016If you are considering buying this phone, be aware that you must buy a screen protector at all... moreThere are several incorrect statements in your opinion:
1) Sand scratches Corning Gorilla Glass and this is very well known. Just do a Google search "Gorilla Glass scratch". However if you wait for iPhone 7 you may get it with sapphire glass which is indeed much more resistant.
2) It is not serious to say that 3.15 MP, f/2.8 480p@30fps camera of Apple iPhone 3GS (or 8 MP, f/2.4 camera of Sony Xperia SP) is better than 16 MP, f/1.9, 1080p camera of Galaxy S5 Neo. Some samples: https://goo.gl/lTxN59
3) It is not serious to compare the price of Apple iPhone 5s 16GB (no microSD slot) - 16GB is definitely not enough (example: for GPS navigation apps with several maps).
4) 320 x 480 pixels TFT display of Apple iPhone 3GS (or 720 x 1280 TFT display of Sony Xperia SP) could not be even close Galaxy S5 Neo 1080 x 1920 Super AMOLED display.
5) Current worldwide market share of Android is 84.1% versus 14.8% iOS, 0.7% Windows (for Europe 75.6% Android versus 18.9% iOS, 4.9% Windows), these numbers say a lot.
6) No comments regarding "superior" text writing on 3.5" display of Apple iPhone 3GS... it is just wrong. It would be much better to use a small keyboard or small notebook.

Just wondered how to keep the 2 buttons
each of the main always light on kuz when i go on display there no option for that
just the brightness of the screen ?
Thanks for the help
If you are considering buying this phone, be aware that you must buy a screen protector at all costs. Even though there are several independent reviews out there claiming that the S5 Neo features Corning Gorilla Glass, this is neither supported by official Samsung specs nor is it borne out by experience. I can state this with certainty because mine got scratched a week after I bought it.
Overall a decent phone for the price I paid (Â€299); excellent colours, beautiful resolution; updated to Marshmallow on about July 15 (Greece); on second thought, for the same amount of money I could have had an iPhone 5s, if only I'd been patient enough to wait a few days for the courier.
After using an Xperia SP and and iPhone 3gs I have this to say: both Sony and Apple have superior photo sensors and software to Samsung, based on my limited experience. As for text input (I write a lot, in several European languages), Android 6 text prediction can't hold a candle to iOS 6's!
So, I'm looking to sell mine already, even though I have invested about Â€100 in Android apps. Apple has the better system, no question.
