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...

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.

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.

I bought Galaxy S5 in 2014 and am still using it. Actually, I am using the device to write this comment. In my opinion the device is one of the best devices of Samsung. Strong and stout design. Touch screen is excellent. After 2 years I am using the original battery. It reduces less than 15% charge at night from 12:00 am to 8:00 am. More than 12 hours at moderate or high use.

so many things bad about this p.o.s. its hard to know where to start....the wi-fi that turns itself on and off, the unbelievably stupidly placed on/off button, the "touch"screen that often doesnt work....its garbage. Buy something else.

What could be draining battery? I have S5 and with normal use by 2pm need to recharge. This is a new battery too.


how do you upgrade it to marshmallow im from the philippines

  • AnonD-305109

Any chance you could retest the endurance after the Marshmallow update to see how Doze and the rest of the features affect it?

  • Shadow015

While using the 's health' app to check heart rate the phone gets stuck and not able to restart until i remove the battery.
