    garbage if you are thinking of switching DON'T

    Posted
    Britt

    I switched from iPhone to galaxy because of space issues and hearing how great the galaxy was over the I phone.it's complete rubbish. the galaxy has constant app crashes that I never experienced with iphone, shotty battery life and has simple but Annoying operating system problems. the auto correct is awful it picks words that are not real and when you do misspell something it doesn't have any way of letting you know. Its Internet keyboard is designed so I always hit Period insead of spacebar. Oh and the kicker the screen cracked so easy. My friend had it 3 days and cracked hers and I took mine out of my life prof case to take some decent pictures and dropped it from the couch to the hard wood floor about 12 inches and cracked it.oh and my microphone is.. but it's not hardware it must be the system because if I test it by making recordings it picks up my voice loud and clear but on speaker phone and Skype no one can hear me. Please explain that. I really tried to like this phone i have owned it 5 months now and was just midly annoyed. but the screen cracking was the last starw. I am stuck with this piece of crud especially now that I cracked the screen for two years . If you are thinking of switching DONT!!!

    A minor step up from the GS4

    I'm not sure why I keep buying the latest Galaxy S products. The truth of the matter is that I prefer smaller high end cell phones. For a guy, I have nowhere to put this phone other than in my back pocket. I enjoy the internal storage which is enough to allow you to run multiple apps without getting an "insufficient memory" message. The features are great, but when I do use the phone, it's for the everyday apps. I am not a power user by any stretch of the imagination. For the price of the device, I would expect Samsung to have a battery that last at least 20-24 hours with heavy use.

    Screen quality, clarity, size is perfect! Dropped the phone a couple of times and no scratches. The speed of the processor keeps up with all the media I put it through. The sound is loud and clear. Have no complaints what so ever. The battery is not as useless as everyone says. I get a full day of constant use without needing to charge it. This cell has replaced my iPad, GPS and Camera. I am constantly taking pictures and am in no need to carry other cameras with me. If I had to... absolutely had to complain is that, it has A LOT of options that I will never need or use!

    I overall Love the Phone, Great Look, Great Battery Life, Fast Charging Cable, Still allows you to use the standard Micro Charger, but has a Advanced charger as well for Fast Charging Disappointment is Settings, I like to be able to delete and alter certain Privacy settings, and hard to navigate

    Very nice phone. Couldn't decide between i-phone or Samsung Galaxy S5, I'm so happy I chose the galaxy s5. The screen is bigger, the phone resolution is nicer and it's not so confusing like the i-phone is. At least that's my opinion and my husband has an i-phone but likes mine a lot better

    If anyone was skeptical about leaving iphone, I was too. I couldn't have traded to any better phone. The galaxy s5 is the best phone I've ever had, hands down. Best buy had the best service and the best deals after searching for weeks. Nothing to complain about here!

    The best phone ever used!! it looks good, it performs very well, and it has everything you need to become a fixture in nearly every aspect of your life. But, like a candidate running for reelection, the GS5 gets where it is today based on experience and wisdom, not on flashy features or massive innovation.

    The phone is great when it comes to the features, it has the perfect size, a great camera and snappy processor speed. However, the thing that I miss most is absence of a premium design, the aesthetics of the phones does not matches with the price.

    I am intrigued by the finger scanner and the heart rate reader. I think the phone is super cool. I have not used all the features on the phone but will in due time. Overall, I believe the Samsung Galaxy S5 is worth the money

    I love everything about this phone accept the delayed dialing, picture quality is poor, the zoom feature is very little and doesn't give a clear picture (very grainy) and the button we previously used to reverse brings up menues information that is useless to me.

    poor battery life

    I was forced to switch to metro pcs from iPhone 6 plus with sprint. The battery life on the s5 is horrible compared to any other phone I have owned. Wish I wouldn't have to give it a bad review but I can't believe the short battery life.

    When i read that metro pcs was offering a $50 unlimited everything promotion i needed a phone to use their 4g lte. The search was fast and easy. Galaxy s5 is the best phone they have. It was definitely worth it

    It doesnt matter how much you spend on the phone itself, if you still have metropcs or tmobile it will still be the same speed as a flip phone. Didn't need to spend 700 bucks to have the same slow service.
