This probably means nothing but a tried out a lot of S5's before buying and I found that the black one always outperformed the white one. It wasn't by a huge margin but it was noticeable to me.

This is my first Samsung device ever so I'm not a fanboy. It's just as fast and responsive as the M8 I played with in Best Buy before ordering this phone. Now having said that, while I have all my apps installed I haven't deviated from the stock home screens yet and I'm using all the stock apps except the video player, which I've substituted with MX Player.

Oh, I'm also using Screebl Pro so may be why I don't have my screen shutting off in the middle of videos.

If I were the OP, I'd swap that phone out...for anything else. I wouldn't put up with that from a flagship device.
There isnt a need for screeble when you check the box for screen stays on while looking at it.

I haven't gotten that far yet, plus I use my phone sometimes in bed late at night. Is it good enough to be able to tell you're looking at the screen in total darkness?

It's on the list of things to try out, though.

so i installed Nova Prime and the Google keyboard and now the only things that annoy me are the lag when opening/exiting the camera and sometimes when i open my S-View case it stays black anywhere from 2-10 seconds...at least my homescreen and keyboard dont bother me anymore

Do you have an old SD card in it? The same thing happened to me when I picked up my phone. It lagged bad when swiping through apps and lag when switching apps. I was about to bring it back but I did a factory reset and including data and removed my old SD card. I thought maybe it was reading something off it that was making it have trouble. When it turned on it was just what I expected. Extremely smooth and no lag whatsoever.

DONATE TO ME
So far from what I can tell we can't change the lock screen widgets at all? I found this thread by searching for dashclock.

It's a REAL downer that it seems there is 0 way to use widgets on the lockscreen other than what's there.

Am i missing something?
