  • Summary: The only real improvement over the S4 is the battery life. This phone is less intuitive and harder to use.

Apps stall out and phone runs hot regardless if phone is in use or not

KTMN, Samsung

  • Summary: I got the phone at the beginning of May and noticed within a day that it was running hot on the back and the front of phone no matter if it was in use or not in use. I brought it into the Verizon store a couple of times and they told that it was "just fine". They then had me make sure that the applications were closed and up to date. I am sorry, I don't want the battery to get too hot and possible cause some damage.
  • Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, runs hot even when not in use, applications stall out

great features but lousy service

  • Summary: Since getting my phone in april of this year i have constant shut downs, freezing screens, errors saying that it cannot find network connection. Love the camera though. I have to pay the deductible if i want a new phone. So i guess i will keep the dropped calls and shutting down til i can cancel my service to a new provider.
  • Pros: Bright display, camera

User Review

  • Summary: I am really impressed by this phone. The display is excellent, as is the camera. And the new OS is nice too (features like showing recent texts when you make a call or view texts). However, I am returning mine due to the poor battery life. With minimal use (a couple of phone calls and a couple of texts), the battery goes from 100% to less than 25% in 12-14 hours. And heaven help you if you forget to charge it every night, as it will be dead by the following morning.

phone has lagging issues

forcedr32, Samsung
20 June 2014
  • Summary: Upgraded from an HTC device hoping for a better experience, and finding myself back where I started. The phone is not performing as a "flagship" should. The phone takes a very long time to turn on, the camera is slow and cumbersome. Hard to end a call, the screen stays black, until the person whom I was on the call with hangs up. I could go on and on... hoping for an update to fix the bugs.
  • Pros: Bright display, Lightweight
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, has bad lagging issues

It could've been a great phone

Dav1979, Samsung
17 June 2014
  • Summary: I'm not sure if these issues are just related to my phone only: - I experience phone freeze quite often. Basically, when my phone is locked, I press the menu key to wake up and proceed to enter my PIN, my screen remains black. I press all other buttons but nothing happens. After sometime it will eventually come up, one time I had to remove the battery in order to start it. This is very frustrating because sometimes I need my phone quickly, and I just can't have it.
  • Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Durable, Realistic color, battery life
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, frozen black screen when locked, video pauses by itself, slow camera
