            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.

              AnonD-573957, 19 Aug 2016Possibly the power button is broken. I had the same problem... moreBattery is the problem, please change the battery, go battery shop put one battery after another until you got marching one that will turn on and will not go off again.

                                        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.
