Easy to use and performance is great. Makes a difficult decision to upgrade to S6 or S7

Excerpt: The S5 is the best phone that I've used/handled. The design is slightly large and can be difficult to operate with one hand if the user has small hands. However there are features in the phone that can accommodate for that.
Excerpt: There's a reason Samsung is # 1 and this product has shown me the proof. Have owned it for over a year, and it took me awhile to get it all figured out, and have not been disappointed on any feature. Do the updates when asked and you'll have yourself a phone for many many happy years.
Excerpt: this is my first phone without a keyboard, I am very pleased how fast I adjusted. My only complaint is the charger, it is difficult to plug into the phone. I understand they have switched back to the old plug in now. It does charge super fast and you can use the older version if need be.
Pros: battery life, Camera/Video Quality, durable, ease of use, good for texting, Menus, Tools, wi-fi capable
Excerpt: I have had this phone since s5 first come out. To this day it works absolutely perfect. I take care of my phone. I keep it cleaned out like your supposed to and I don't put free junk apps in it. These apps are loaded with adds and who knows what else. If I like the app I pay for it.
Excerpt: I had the S4 for 3 yrs and loved it! Chose the S5 over the S6, which is not water resistant and has non-removable, shorter life battery. The Lollipop upgrade has worked fine for me, tho the standard email doesn't work right- no inbox if more than one acct.
Excerpt: Two years ago, I graduated from basic cell phone to my first Smartphone, a Motorola RAZR XT. I was always a bit frustrated with this phone, but I thought perhaps it was just too smart for me. The very poor battery life had me out looking for a new phone.
Pros: Camera/Video Quality, wi-fi capable, Menus, good for texting, battery life, Tools, ease of use
Excerpt: I had my phone for over a week and I do not have any issues with the phone. The battery life is good. I suggest putting the phone on Power Saving mode. It helps a lot. Since I read the reviews about the Lollipop upgrade, I did not put that upgrade on the phone.
Pros: durable, Camera/Video Quality, good for texting, battery life, ease of use
Excerpt: I've had too many Motorolas, and almost got an iPhone because of the unique and dependable features it has. BUt, the Galaxy5s has every feature that I want, once I selected the right apps, and got rid of nuisance, unwanted apps.
Pros: Camera/Video Quality, wi-fi capable, Menus, good for texting, Tools, ease of use
This model is intuitive and thus easy to learn to navigate. I loved picking it up and being able to use it immediately (and I'm a senior citizen).
