The Samsung Galaxy S5 was a flagship device launched by Samsung last year. The phone is one of the most premium devices Samsung has to offer in the Indian market. The device runs on Android KitKat and is still lined up for a Lollipop upgrade.
Even though the Samsung Galaxy S5 included some big upgrades including a souped up version of Android 4.4 KitKat which at the time was Google's most current operating system. Most Galaxy S5 users remain on Android 4.4.2 KitKat or Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
While some of the handset users have an extremely enjoyable device some others are struggling to get the most out of their devices.
Here are some of the most commom problems with the Samsumg Galaxy S5 and how to fix them.
Battery life problems are a big issue for any smartphone user at present. It's not only a problem exclusive to the people who own a Galaxy S5. There is no guaranteed fix for these issues, there are some fixes to try in an effort to improve battery life on Samsung's current flagship.
Often it's the third party applications which cause all the fuss. Thus the easiest way is to restart your handset in Safe mode and see all the third party applications which are running on your device and thereafter you may choose to uninstall the ones you do not like.
Wi-Fi problems are also common on the Galaxy S5. Like battery life problems, there's no guaranteed fix for these issues. The first thing to do is reboot the Galaxy S5. You'll also want to try rebooting your router if you haven't done that in awhile. Force your Galaxy S5 to forget the Wi-Fi network that's posing problems. Head to the desired connection in Settings and select the Forget Network option.
If you're worried about your the bluetooth connectivity on your handset then you'll have to just try more than one way to fix that. The first fix to try is simply shifting Bluetooth on and off. To do this, head into Settings and then Bluetooth and toggle the service off and then back on again after a few moments. If that doesn't fix the problem, it's time to forget your connections. After that restart your device and connect again, this should do the trick.
Galaxy S5 users experiencing abnormal lag or sluggishness will be happy to know that there are an array of fixes to try and help stabilize the performance of the handset. The first step towards this would be to clear your cache partition. Using live wallpapers can also negatively impact the perforemance of your device. Turning off the NFC will also boost up performance if you're not using it.
