I write from Switzerland. Got the phone S5 Neo a few days back. When I call people say the sound quality they get is poor. And I find the same. The sound quality is poor. Is it a general problem? I do not know. I think Samsung need to look into the problem and needed recall the product and and fix it. A phone worth 359 Euros we expect no such problem.
Hi, any idea which would be a better choice of phone? s5 neo or the a3 (2016)? both are of the same price due to contract here. thanks
AnonD-475751, 13 Dec 2015I dont understand, almost every spec is worse than the S4, except for 8 core and waterproof...... moreSpecs arent everything friend i used to own an s4 now i have a j5 and i enjoy it more than the s4 because of the user experience
Can this phone be used with Samsung VR gear?
Which one VR gear is compatible with this phone?
After using it for a few months, something has failed in antenna or microphone, not sure. Absolutely imposible to hear when talking to someone. As well nobody could not understand me. Sound was breaking up and vibrating, very similar to low reception, but then it had full bars. No clue. Took it to warranty service.
Anonymous, 30 Dec 2015I have Samsung galaxy s5 neo and can't find the screen mirror function. Does it not have it?Ive read a comment saying s5 neo Doesn't have it
cpt.Scirocco, 31 Dec 2015I tested s5 neo with s5 old. S5 neo has: 1) Radio 2) Better selfie camera 3) It's a little... moreHas the S5 neo speaker, as loud like in S5. I using the phone in noisy environment so I'm looking for phone with good speaker.
Luc, 28 Dec 2015I can't use it as a phone. Peopole can't hear me when i am talking to them. Received a second... moreSame problem with the sound. Second phone as well. Anyone know how to fix this before I return it again?
I have found a bug in the camera usage which is very annoying.When using the flash, the exposure time (lets say shutter speed) should lock to 1/60sec or at least 1/40 sec.Instead,if you shoot in a low light environment it locks down to...1/17sec.At this speed it is almost impossible to hold your hand still, especially when you are at a party or a club, when everyone is moving! The camera drivers have really bad configuration.It is stupid and almost unusable at low light conditions.I contact my country's Samsung branch but from their replies I realized that they didnt understand anything...they told me to take it to the service..are they stupid or not!?!?!? I hope some of you to test it and then post it to Samsung so that they will change it soon.
I tested s5 neo with s5 old.
S5 neo has:
2) Better selfie camera
3) It's a little faster even if you use plenty apks (multitasking) octacore respond perfectly.
4) Better O.S 5.1.1 with upgrade will go 6.0
5) Some workings that does not exist on s5 old. These were belonging on s6.
6)IP 65 that also s5 old has.
7) Cheaper about 70 euros (Greece)
8) Longer battery life
S5 old has:
1)Better normal camera
2) You can tape 4k videos
3) It has better graphics at games and is not lagging
5) Tv mirror screen
The decision is yours
Achman, 28 Dec 2015Please does the neo has the 50 gb of cloud storage the old s3 please？In Canada with Bell as service provider it came with 100GB on Microsoft OneDrive
There was also something like 5GB with other which I did not bother to redeem.

I am very disappointed with gaming on this phone, I don't know why but this phone lags a bit even in the game Piano tiles 2. On Hearthstone or Fifa 16 it is laging heavily. Can someone can tell me your opinions about gaming?
The phone works great, but the camera is not very good. almost every picture i take with it, is blurry. Dont buy this phone if you want to make sharp picutures.
Overall, the S5 Neo is the better of the two despite the 4K and QHD display missing. Those are trade offs, in my opinion, I can live with given it has improved the cameras and the f Stop is 1.9 which takes great low light pics (took ours to Disney World and got some great pics). Some S6 features like the camera's Quick Launch is very handy. Very zippy phone and so far, no complaints.
Anonymous, 24 Dec 2015hey can you tell me if this phone have a Gorilla Glass protection or not ? Thank you in advan... moreFrom what I've been reading, it has Gorilla Glass 3, not 4. I couldn't find anything solid from Samsung itself, but I would imagine it would have Gorilla Glass on it...what level of it would be a guess in itself...
