This device is very weak, the eight-core , look like three of which are so weak , the device has a slow and weak performance. I thought that with the new processor would be better than the original S5 , but is far below him, was playing , it is below the S4 . I'll sell it and buy a Moto Maxx .
adam, 18 Apr 2016hi all
i just got a brand new s5 neo and really like it....One Problem: when my phone is plug... moreYou should beware that making telephone calls while driving is illegal in every country.
You may use bluetooth or regular handsfree headset.
Regarding the car radio - Galaxy S5 Neo has a MirrorLink function (bluetooth) - works only for certain car radios. You may checkup at the user manual or just Google for "MirrorLink Samsung". In case you use a headset jack for speaker only connection, then you are blocking the microphone indeed. Probably bluetooth handsfree headset may help then.
You may use the Galaxy S5 Neo in your car like navigation device too - works well with Nokia Here Maps app or MapFactor Navigator app (both free apps). You just need a car holder - Google for "Car Air Vent Mount Cradle Mount Phone Holder Samsung S5".
the worst phone ever.. slow, no one can hear you on your calls, slow on its selections, utter useless on its menu selection..reception rubbish, you cannot call if your in a room.. dont say i didnt warn you..
WARNING!!!! DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE-- total piece of crap, broke with in a week of owning it, runs horribly slow, screen cracked? or scratched from inside when we got it, software glitches out, bell canada or Samsung does NOT stand behind it when it breaks I basically have a 1 week old phone for the garbage. Local repair shop quotes over 400 dollars to repair. What a disappointing product. Buy a Apple product....
Ana, 18 Apr 2016One thing I can say and that is - this is the worst phone ever made! I don't understand how so... moreSome Android apps may not work well with Android 5.11 (or next Android 6.0) - just use properly working Android apps. Beware of viruses too - there are games apps containing malware.
i just got a brand new s5 neo and really like it....One Problem: when my phone is plugged into my car stereo (from mobile's mini jack to car stereo's aux mini) and I make a call...I can hear the other person's voice over the stereo but they cannot hear me at all. The phone's mic works when i make regular calls but plugging into the car stereo seems to silence the mic. Does anyone know how to fix this or is having the same problem? Thanks!
One thing I can say and that is - this is the worst phone ever made! I don't understand how someone can sell this ! Is blocking, is restarting and I don't know what is not doing (or what is working good on this phone).
WORST PHONE EVER. DO NOT BUY. I had the S5 and had to replace it and could only get the NEO. Screen freeze's, will auto type with out even touching the screen. Bluetooth cuts out after less than 5 minutes of use. Waste of money. I am going to buy my contract out just to get rid of this crap phone. DO NOT BUY
Kchenders, 14 Apr 2016Yes does this samsung s5 neo fongerprint option i mean can i open it with my finger
I have had cell phones since 1995 and this is the worst phone by far. Maybe it was built on a Monday or Friday I have no idea, but one thing for sure, if I had the bucks to get rid of it I would!!!!! I just changed phones in March so have a very long way to go, I expect this one will be in the brink before then. We returned from a trip and the phone took over a week to catch up that it was home, gave me Miami weather reports for a long time, in other words did not recognize that it was back in home port. The screen saver, even though I have it timed at 2 minutes, returns if I move my finger from the screen and I have to go thru the sign on process again. Every app I open I have to go thru a sign on process (I so hate it) I know this process is suppose to be a safety But really, every app. Once the phone is open it should stay open for all apps. I changed from a Blackberry to a Samsung as I needed the android and Blackberry was just to expensive for a retired soul business owner. I so wish I'd picked the iPhone, I did have an option. Now to find someone in Samsung industry who may care.
roco, 12 Apr 2016My English is not so good,but please answer.Does s5 Neo can go underwater?Yes
I really don't understand what's wrong with the phone while I use the Facebook or any other program mobile shuts down by it self and restart again any solution
roco, 12 Apr 2016My English is not so good,but please answer.Does s5 Neo can go underwater?P67 certified - dust and water resistant
- Water resistant up to 1 meter and 30 minutes
Also the secs here state a 1.6 core, phone says its a 1.8....
Never had a samsung i hated until now
This phone is awful, a down rated processor really ties this thing in knots, it has been slow and lagging since day one, if i could afford another phone i would get one but this phone puts me off daily. It struggles is everything it dose and i cant wait till i can get rid of it. I have no idea why samsung put in a slower cpu, a stupid mistake that i have to put up with for a two year contract
