Does anyone has any batterie drain with the new nougat update? My batterie used to last longer with marshmallow. I dont know if its only my phone or a issue of the new update.

And samsung downgraded purposely to 720p 60fps even though it was 1080p 60fps on certain videos . This is the case with a5 2016. With s5 neo, idk. Maybe they solved. But in games exynos 7580 is HORRIBLE. Riptide gp renegade barely hits 30fps in 720p. On low. So... I miss the alpha, s5 and note 4.

It does sometimes lag and freeze but I never saw it lag on YouTube at 1080p@60fps. Maybe yours wasn't manufactured right, you don't know how to use it or you did something to mess it up yourself. S5 Neo is a good phone and doesn't have that much problems. The new Nougat update fixes everything anyway. Also, who even cares about S5's 4K video recording. The S5 Neo camera is way better than the original S5 even if it only has 1080 recording.
Amazing with Nougat update. All the lag, instability that this phone sometimes had with previous updates is gone. Everything is better and smoother including camera quality. This phone has the same Android Nougat from the Galaxy S8 which is nice. Phone is overall a lot faster with Nougat update.
When will the G903F European version be updated to the nougat? Does anyone know?
Never in my life I hated a phone like this one.
The sofware is so much defficent that I sometimes dont even receive my calls. It becomes buggy quickly, so I had to reset it two times in less than one year.
Every time I did there was new functions missing and new ones poped out of nowhere. The water resistance fail is not guarranteed, as the battery is removable and there is SD slot so its your fault if it fails... Nice philosophy...
Thats so unfortunate I took this phone on a plan, I have to endure it until next april...
This phone is the reason why I'm not gonna buy a Samsung product anymore.

But no finger scaner, no screen mirroring, no 4k or 1080p/720p 60fps recording. And the gpu is so horrible that every game lags even in 720p. And my classmate that owns this phone is fine with it. But for 350euros is a scam from shamesung. Don't be fooled by octa core cpu and newer software. This phone is pure trash. At 200 euros is ok but anything more is a scam. And nougat will be a disaster for this one. And YES it even lags when you play 1080p 60fps videos on youtube. Sometimes even 720p 60 for a few seconds.
I absolutely hate this phone! It is slow, has no storage, pretends to die at least once a week, and the button placement at the bottom makes my thumb cramp. It is also very ugly and small. I would not recommend this phone and am already looking to replace it after only having it for about 2 months
In a strange twist of events I heard that Samsung is planning on releasing Nougat 7.0 on the S5 Neo. is this True? Would you consider this phone is still a good deal for its specs? How about the HTC U Play or Z3?
I was sad when my provider no longer offered Sony products. I'm happy with my provider and thought what the heck I'll try a Samsung, after all how bad can it be?
I'm generally happy with the performance of the phone and really like the removable back. But after several months of using the phone I am sick and tired of the auto correct. It is not predictive, words taken out of the dictionary reappear on a regular basis and this is a real nuisance.
Given the amount I text and e-mail this is a real deal killer. Come replacement I'll be looking at other brands, which is sad because I'm generally happy with the phone.
bl123, 01 Jul 2017When is update to nougat Nothing official is confirmed. However, the SM-G903W (Canadian variant) now has Wi-Fi certification under Nougat. That's a good sign that it might be getting an upgrade.

I bought a new sd and that nuissance never occurred again. I suspect that somehow the sd card broke at the update. Hope it helps
Shafiq, 03 Jul 2017hi my s5 neo sucks cant turn on wifi and bluetooth Restart to the factory settings
just read that s5 neo was spotted on GFXBench with android 7.0 nougat, We got the march security update so that means that s5 neo has not been forgoten
I don't know why you guys have so much trouble with your unit, mine is fine with the plastic chrome around the USB port chipped, I've rooted it, played a lot of games and I can say I'm not satisfied of the performance in games but in the rest of the apps is snappy.
This device received a security update recently and I think there will be more in the future.
Some apps were crashing for no reason but it's not always the phones fault, is the developers problem.
Used it for nearly 2 years and it's still going strong and also I've used it in the shower, left it in a bucket full of water while playing a music video and no water the damage.
