Hi, I was wondering if this phone would be good for my mom? She is just over 50 and she would like a big phone to be able to read and type easy, but she doesn't want the newest s6 and s7s. Also can you get the S Health App thats on the s7 on the s5?

Anonymous, 30 May 2016which is the better ? samsung galaxy s5 neo or galaxy a3 2016 ? please help someoneJust go to "COMPARE" button (after Specifications button) and compare the specifications:
Galaxy A3 is smaller (4.7" agains 5.1"), with lower display resolution (720p against 1080p), lower battery capacity, back camera (13mp against 16mp), not water resistant, no heart rate censor.
The NEO literally has no DTMF built in. Im still trying to figure out what brain thought that was a good idea and why it hasn't been fixed in an update. Just a heads up.

We bough a Samsung galaxy s5 neo and did an abonnement,and at the first we didn't compared it but s5 neo its just the stripped version of the original s5,they took all the nice and modern things from the original version such as Corning gorilla glass 3,touchWizz UI,fingerprint sensor,wireless charging,infrared port,the original s5 can make 4k videos,and s5 neo did not,and another features...and whats the result after this stripping? An old type android without new and modern features,stripped to the maximum,and you still pay lots of money,around 300 euro for this device,my opinion for the things what you get from this device don't value more then 150 euro and the back lid its made it from cheap looking piece of crap,ugly and very thin type of plastic-carton,if you take off in the hury or harder,you risk to break it into pieces!The conclusion is i am very disappointed!

Aire, 23 May 2016Can I fit an Otterbox Preserver s5 case in a Galaxy s5 neo? Im thinking about buying one but I... morePeople tell me they hear echos or background noise when I'm talking on my samsung 5 neo. Under the phone app under call I don't have a noise reduction option. How can I fix this, because if they can't hear me or understand what I'm saying, the phone is worthless.
please Help me.
No Reply, 24 May 2016I have a question. I don't know what to do. Should I wait for the OTA update or should I flash... moreIt would be better to wait.
There are no significant changes in the latest Android 6.0.1 update. I see only improvement of the battery life and improvement of the Samsung Camera App (the loud shutter noise is now quite, no camera app resets anymore - this was the only app with a problem in Android 5.1.1).
Previous Android 5.1.1. had many different variations depending of the version, country and service provider. You may see that the Android 6.0.1 update did not start yet in North America (SM-G903W). There could be different Android 6.0.1 variations depending of your version, country and service provider.
"When is Android Marshmallow 6.0 coming to my Samsung phone?
Last OS update, Samsung had its version rolling out 31 days after the Google launch. But not all phones actually got it right away. Variations in network can play a role here, and some see quite a delay...."
