Taiye, 06 Sep 2017Yo I think I have it too. How long does yours last for Well after some days of usage i think the battery has gotten much better but still doesnt last as long as it used too. It used to last till 8 to 9pm but right now it last me till 6 pm. Still is very inconsistent.

wezzy300, 03 Sep 2017has anybody officially got the nougat update ?It has been released for all carriers in Canada (SM-G903W). It doesn't look like any of the European carriers (SM-J903F) have released it yet.
trinscaiano, 17 Aug 2017I absolutely hate this phone! It is slow, has no storage, pretends to die at least once a week... moreNo Storage? it has 16GB onboard and expandable memory SDcard slot?
What in the world are you downloading
Still Running 5.1.1 Smoothly (Rooted) Will await the new update once initial bugs are compressed to a small few. I enjoy this stable ROM I have loaded
My experience may differ since I dont use Games or Facebook/Instagram/Social Media.
These newer apps have proven data that sap batteries and have their own instability and sometimes we address it to the phone but I keep my apps to a minimum.
Running Youtube 60Fps is awsome but I will disable it because it does use a lot of cpu/battery @ 60fps. keeping in mind the youtube app you can still scroll around and continously run 60fps minimized.
Does anyone has any batterie drain with the new nougat update? My batterie used to last longer with marshmallow. I dont know if its only my phone or a issue of the new update.

And samsung downgraded purposely to 720p 60fps even though it was 1080p 60fps on certain videos . This is the case with a5 2016. With s5 neo, idk. Maybe they solved. But in games exynos 7580 is HORRIBLE. Riptide gp renegade barely hits 30fps in 720p. On low. So... I miss the alpha, s5 and note 4.

It does sometimes lag and freeze but I never saw it lag on YouTube at 1080p@60fps. Maybe yours wasn't manufactured right, you don't know how to use it or you did something to mess it up yourself. S5 Neo is a good phone and doesn't have that much problems. The new Nougat update fixes everything anyway. Also, who even cares about S5's 4K video recording. The S5 Neo camera is way better than the original S5 even if it only has 1080 recording.
Amazing with Nougat update. All the lag, instability that this phone sometimes had with previous updates is gone. Everything is better and smoother including camera quality. This phone has the same Android Nougat from the Galaxy S8 which is nice. Phone is overall a lot faster with Nougat update.
When will the G903F European version be updated to the nougat? Does anyone know?
Never in my life I hated a phone like this one.
The sofware is so much defficent that I sometimes dont even receive my calls. It becomes buggy quickly, so I had to reset it two times in less than one year.
Every time I did there was new functions missing and new ones poped out of nowhere. The water resistance fail is not guarranteed, as the battery is removable and there is SD slot so its your fault if it fails... Nice philosophy...
Thats so unfortunate I took this phone on a plan, I have to endure it until next april...
This phone is the reason why I'm not gonna buy a Samsung product anymore.

But no finger scaner, no screen mirroring, no 4k or 1080p/720p 60fps recording. And the gpu is so horrible that every game lags even in 720p. And my classmate that owns this phone is fine with it. But for 350euros is a scam from shamesung. Don't be fooled by octa core cpu and newer software. This phone is pure trash. At 200 euros is ok but anything more is a scam. And nougat will be a disaster for this one. And YES it even lags when you play 1080p 60fps videos on youtube. Sometimes even 720p 60 for a few seconds.
I absolutely hate this phone! It is slow, has no storage, pretends to die at least once a week, and the button placement at the bottom makes my thumb cramp. It is also very ugly and small. I would not recommend this phone and am already looking to replace it after only having it for about 2 months
In a strange twist of events I heard that Samsung is planning on releasing Nougat 7.0 on the S5 Neo. is this True? Would you consider this phone is still a good deal for its specs? How about the HTC U Play or Z3?
I was sad when my provider no longer offered Sony products. I'm happy with my provider and thought what the heck I'll try a Samsung, after all how bad can it be?
I'm generally happy with the performance of the phone and really like the removable back. But after several months of using the phone I am sick and tired of the auto correct. It is not predictive, words taken out of the dictionary reappear on a regular basis and this is a real nuisance.
Given the amount I text and e-mail this is a real deal killer. Come replacement I'll be looking at other brands, which is sad because I'm generally happy with the phone.
