Samsung Galaxy S5 is pretty horrible

Postby buckton » Tue Mar 24, 2015 4:59 pm

Coming from an HTC which was pretty fucking good, I swapped networks as well but my data usage has gone from around 1gb a month to 2-3gb a month, I've tried turning off background data to try and curb because I'm paying up $45 a week and it only just covers my bill. There was also the random beeping it made that couldn't be fixed with a factory reset. Google Maps navigation crashes 90% of the time too. Gonna wait a few months a pay myself out of this terrible device and use it for a doorstop.

windows is releasing somethat lets you roll android phones with win10, might be worth checking out, otherwise try cyanogenmod it to get rid of shitty bloatware

My samsung s3 is fine, my friends samsung s5 is fine. Its all about personal preference.

Might as well say you went from a flip phone to a smart phone with s3 to HTC one

When I was looking for a compact Android phone, I couldn't get past the dinky look of this toy and bought a Sony phone instead:

i bought my phone mainly to use the net on, i lived in a place with no phone wires, no nothing, but good cellphone reception.
situation changed.
but i still back the moto g for a cheap phone, i paid $200 over a year ago, and its hard as nails, quadcore, 1gig, fast as, handles heaps of open apps, altho its struggled a bit lately with me adding all these video chat apps, gunna have to prune that.
its dual sim, which was a big thing for me when i bought it so i could have a dedicated data account, but i dont even use that now, it doesnt have a user replaceable battery like it was a fuckin lame iphone, and to really top that bullshit off, it has no upgradable memory, no SD slot... and the model i got is only 8gig, 2.5 of which is used up by the operating system and native apps.

despite that shitty limitation, its a great phone, fast, doesnt fuck up, runs heaps of shit at once, android can be annoying, but its not osx so count your blessings.

ultimately i wouldnt get this phone again, but id certainly look at another motorola.
