Doesn't have gorilla glass, information from samsung customer support. Sadly
Hmm, bought the Galaxy S5 Duos for my dad instead of this phone.
Some major reasons:-
1) Better processor: Snapdragon 801 is more powerful than Exynos 7580, although 7580 is more power efficient.
2) 4K video recording. Seriously I don't see a single good reason why Samsung removed it on S5 Neo. The S5 Duo records 4K videos perfectly, heck even my iPhone 5s now records 4K video with aplomb by using an app called ProCam 3.
3) Dual sim facility. My Dad needed it so S5 Duos clearly had upper hand here.
4) Fingerprint sensor, unfortunately Samsung dropped this feature in S5 Neo. It's a good feature, I can't fathom why they removed it.
5) And of course the most important factor, goddamn the Galaxy S5 Duos is cheaper than S5 Neo, seriously why would someone with his brain in right place gonna pay more for a less powerful phone.

I have just recently bought this phone after having my S3 for 3 years! Decided on the S5 neo instead of the S6 as I could not justify the S6 being double the price and the fact that it has such a small battery! (No point having all the cool gimmics if you don't have the power to sustain them)
A 100% charge lasted 2 days of heavy usage without dying or even complaining about low battery! (it's a new toy so I barely let go of it)
My last phone couldn't make it a day of reasonable useage without a top up charge!
The only issue I am finding is that there is very little option to add wireless charging functionality to it.
There are devices that claim to be compatible with the s5 and s5 neo but I am a bit confused as to how the connectors work.
The s5 has 5 connectors arranged in an "L" shape and the s5 neo has 2 in a ":" shape. From what I have seen there are various wireless charging inserts that can be fitted and they all seem to have different pin orientations.
Not quite sure which to get and I don'the want to waste money on the wrong one.
Camera is very good but the settings seem a bit too simplified. I think my S3 had better picture quality with its 8mp camera, however the increased dpi and resolution of this device probably show more grainyness than the s3 screen would have.
All in all it is a fantastic device for a very reasonable price!
I am very happy with it.
The battery life on s5 neo is terrible for me. It only lasts about an hour or two when using it just browsing. Also it heats up very quickly. Any suggestions
This phone is amazing, waterproof, great looking (silver) and the battery life is DOUBLE compared to my old last year S4!! GG Samsung!
Hello! Does anyone have any idea which phone is better. S5 NEO or Samsung A7 and why?
S5 Neo owner, 13 Nov 2015I bought it! But no one can tell me about Gorilla Glass protection...It has a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
S5 Neo Vs S5: Which one do you think is more suited for day to day tasks in terms of battery life and processor speed? (not interested in gaming) thanks!

Hi there fellows, i have s5 neo. How can i find Edit function or button ? This function is on my old s3 in the left
I love the S5 Neo. Battery life is much much longer vs my old S4.
Only annoying thing I experienced : although activated, the feature Smart Stay is not working. Anybody else with this problem ? Solution available ?
