Samsung Galaxy S5 review: Fab Five

08 April 2014
Every time the Samsung Galaxy S counter flips a digit, the world is getting ready to be amazed. The lineup that stood up to the iPhone and has been pulling Android to the very top of the food chain, is under new leadership effective last month...

Had mine from brand new in 2014 and still have it. Works fine, still has its original battery that still works. I would only get a new phone if this phone crashed beyond recovery.

My Samsung galaxy s5 went off and not turning on

  • AnonD-13959

really love this phone, altough i use the lte version wich is much better than the standard version. but now my phone screen has shadow / burn in and the body has scratches everywhere. the replacement body is quite cheap but the replacement screen is still quite expensive, sike i'ts even the same price as a secondhand s5. i'm in the zone of wether i get this phone fix or just buy another phone.

Does this phone become hot?????

Don't buy the V-zon or A-T version of this phone (or any of their MVNO networks, as will be the same crippled model)! Can't be rooted, and in 2017 you need to be able to root this phone to keep it relevant. Great features like removable battery, IR blaster, SD card slot, great looking screen, etc. Trust me, look into what this phone is capable of with a custom rom and root apps and this phone could be your sleeper daily driver. Props to Sprint and T-Mobile for not wrecking the flagship model of 2014.
