While at work, I happened to glance at my <Sprint - USA> GS5 to see that it had received an Android System update.  Wonder what I'll end up with? 5.1 finally???  Stay tuned.

So I found something on discussion board the other day for battery life on 5.0 that seems to work good for me. In the the shortcut drop down press and hold power saving and turn on (restrict background data) . Then turn on power saving mode.
I mainly use wifi. And only have data on when I need it. (I have had apps use too much) that being said I have not noticed anything different on how the phone works. Everything seems to be the same for me and how I use it. Could be different depending on how you use your phone.
I only loose a 3 to 5% over night , it used to be 30% or so. My hour commute with not that much use took 15% now 2%. I also turned off (always allow auto scanning) in advanced wifi settings.

Is there some way I can see the event logs?? I'm trying to find out why the camera app that comes with the S5 keeps becoming unresponsive...... I have to clear the data and cache and restart the phone before it starts to work again.......

I'd like to be able to use it when I want, not to have to go through that process first........ Or worry about missing a shot because I don't know I have a problem with the app........

I've got a 64gb SD card in my phone and I wanted to see what was on the card, so I plugged the phone into the computer, and it showed me zero files, but something was taking up space on the card.  I made sure nothing was hidden as far as folder options.  Still didn't show me any files. 
I formatted the SD card while it was in the phone, and now its showing me things I had on there a while ago!

Why did these items appear now, and if I format the card, why are they still there?  How can I get rid of these files on the SD card for good and start over new????

Has anyone tried to put the firmware back on the s5?  I still have the stock, but want to set it like it was when it was new, and factory reset doesn't do it.  Somehow I got ringtones on the phone itself and now no matter what the ringtone name, they all play the same music.

I am trying to go back to the original using Odin and the firmware I downloaded from Sammobile

The problem is I can install the software fine, but it keeps my settings and apps installed.

How can I do this so I install the firmware I downloaded and wipe the phone clean using Odin?  What settings do I need to check???

Anyone know where I can get a stock Verizon S5 image from at a reasonable download speed, without having to pay for some stupid "premium" download service???

Does anyone know the best place to download a original stock binary file for the Galaxy S5 from Verizon, the SM-G900V??

I've looked at places like SamMobile, but it takes like 4 hours to download if you don't pay to have the high speed download.

Any other suggestions??

Somehow the default ringtones on my S5 got messed up.  I believe it happened when I added my custom ringtones to the ringtone section on the S5 itself instead of using the SD card.  

Now, when I pick a ringtone or notification sound, even if the name is different, it plays the same tune.  So if I pick A , the sound for A plays, if I pick C, the sound for A plays.  If I pick F, the sound for A plays......

I've tried a factory reset, and the ringtones are still in the list.  How can I resolve this issue????

No you don't need root to use Odin. You download Odin onto your computer. Put the phone in download mode and it will flash the original OS.

I have heard rumors that a Android 5.1.1 is on its way to the S5.  Has ANYONE heard any official news on when this will be out for those of us on Verizon??? :)

How can I set Google Camera as the default camera app instead of the one that came with the phone??

I'd like to have Google Camera start up when I use the camera shortcut from the S5 lockscreen.....

Hello there everyone, I'm new here. I would like to address a problem with a specific feature which is the selective focus on the camera which has stopped working altogether after I updated my s5 to the lollipop firmware over OTA. My question is, is there any way to fix this problem? And is it just me or is this the same case with everyone else?
Thank you.
PS I'm using the sm-g900h

A while ago I connected my S5 to a desktop computer and transferred some ringtones to the ringtones folder on the phone itself....  now, when I connect the phone to my laptop, I don't see the ringtones on the phone that I transferred.....  I need to remove them off the phone. 

I've done a factory reset, but those ringtones are still in the list.

How can I get into the phone to see the list of ringtones on the phone itself, not the SDcard.......  And FYI, I am using the Android 5 on the phone from Verizon.

Thanks for any info.
