After my galaxy s6 got stolen i needed a new (cheaper) phone. I got the s5 neo now for 1 week. My first impression is very good! The camera is definitely a litle less than the one on the s6. The s5 neo sometimes gives blurry pics, you really need a steady hand. Other than that i dont notice any difference (performance wise) in the s5 neo and the s6. I do need to say that i dont play games on my phone so maybe you would notice some there.
Also i had no spontaneous startups (yet, the s6 did by the way) and reception is good! Also the battery is better that the one in the s6.
All in all i am very happy with the s5 neo. Summary: waterproof, better (and removable) battery, fast (enough) processor, no glass back and a good low price
This phone is a piece of junk, I had a S3 before and it worked way better than the S5 Neo, the sound quality is poor on phone calls, it sounds bad, people on the other end cant hear me and I can't hear them clearly,it sounds squeaky like a busted speaker. Using the speaker for music or phone calls is low even at full volume. Also in the phone call logs it does not retain the caller's name like the S3 did. THE ONLY UP SIDE TO IT IS THE BATTERY LIFE IS BETTER THAN THE S3. I would give this phone 1 STAR because of the battery, but the main reason I need a phone is to make calls and this phone does not do that well.

FAO, 28 Nov 2015Hello, on different website I see different additions to the phone name. For example Galaxy S5... moreIt depends the country you're in and the antenna bands that are supported in your country.

Please before you speak about a general problem and recommend a recall, investigate the issue a little. It is just your phone, send it to service to be repaired.
The phone is actually a rip-off. No screen mirroring, less responsive screen, weaker camera and so on, and so on... Do a good research before You buy it.
Battery life is great. Samsung got the size right, it is really spot on.

The distortion on the speaker is shocking. I struggle to hear a call cause the volume is so low.I put speaker on that's when it distorts. I had an s 3 didn't have this problem.Samsung. should recall them and sought it out. £300is not cheap.
Is the processor of S5 Neo better than the regular S5 ???
And is it better or should i get regular S5 ?
The stock camera overexpose pictures and it is difficult to get sharp pictures due to shaking. Google camera took better pictures in my opinion.
i've buy it, and in is first month of use it got seriously damage, :( my bad, i left in fall from my hand, but it was a small fall, i dont recommend it to no one, i believe their materials sar really bad, in is first smal fall to the ground i've got the display fucked up, big $ repair , not assurance, seriously samsung ... you company should think about made yourt cell phones more availabres in price, and more strong! unlucky for me!
