incoming user, 18 Dec 2015does this phone support otg cable/adaptor?Yes shure.
I also was looking forward to using the radio on my new S5 Neo but it doesn't show up on my apps menu. Is this a Samsung scam or an issue with the service provider?
sunny, 16 Dec 2015why the pictures taken without flash are really bad. is there something wrong with my camera?Turn the flash to auto
Just got a new S5 Neo. Compared the sound quality , microphone and speaker with my current S3. The S5 is a poor quality phone compared to my S3. It's only a toy and I won't be using it.
ItsPrior, 15 Dec 2015First time phone review, so I will try to be concise.
Bell Canada replaced my Galaxy S5 wit... morebattery life of course a bit different from your old s5
your old s5 has a quad core processor, where s5 new has a OCT core processor.
about your SD card, is it an after market one? you may have to reformat your card again, its getting old and corrupt. Needs a class 10.
about how you dislike this phone, I m not supporting Samsung on this unit, I just think u detest it in general, just as bell to switch u to something else.
wait... its not new, its a replacement.. good luck.

Only had it a day. This phone replaces a one year old bb passport( which I will miss dearly) due too rain damage again. Tough to get used to lollipop after being spoiled by bb os. This phone does not have a good earpiece, and sound quality suffers somewhat. Overall performance is good, for the price. Pictures are also quite good. Will post again in a month
why the pictures taken without flash are really bad. is there something wrong with my camera?
AVOID AVOID AVOID! This specific model has problems with the audio output. Noisy and hissy output on ALL the three S5 Neo phones that I tested out, which means that there is an obvious design flaw on this model. Samsung might give you the good specs on paper, but from my experience their phones are cheap, and the build quality is poor.
ItsPrior, 15 Dec 2015First time phone review, so I will try to be concise. Bell Canada replaced my Galaxy S5 wit... moreLooks like you've bought a piece of crap from the gray market. Original S5 Neo works just fine: doesn't heat, battery charges up fast enough, has a gorilla glass 3 screen, battery keeps full day with heavy usage, which is enough, Screen auto dimm and flash works just fine. I don't care what micro USB port it has - it does the job. This phone is a bang for a buck.

It pops up every time after phone was restarted. It reminds you to make sure back cover is firmly in its place before you put it into the water. Because it's WATERPROOF.

ItsPrior, 15 Dec 2015First time phone review, so I will try to be concise. Bell Canada replaced my Galaxy S5 wit... moreI also forgot to mention, I received this phone from Bell Canada with a defective microSD slot. Excellent QC. So my replacement phone also needs a replacement.
First time phone review, so I will try to be concise.
Bell Canada replaced my Galaxy S5 with a Galaxy S5 NEO.
After using the Neo for a week (GS5 was 7 months old before I broke it) these are my thoughts.
Battery life is WORSE than the original S5 and I have less apps running/installed on the Neo.
Also, the Neo has the regular micro USB port while the S5 had the larger port with a different charging cable. I've noticed the Neo model charges much slower.
This thing overheats like a mofo. Screen will auto dim and camera flash will not work.
The Neo also lacks Gorilla glass. This hasn't been an issue, however it feels like a downgrade to me.
I would avoid this phone if possible.
