Was using this app, then long press on home button to search from Google now. Phone froze, screen went black and just left the keyboard open. Couldn't do anything apart from a battery pull. Hope this isn't a sign of things to come!

Never happened to me on the S5 yet but it happened for me some times on the nexus 7 2014 while using chrome (only on kitkat). Guess its a general problem that can happen in android since KitKat. Hope google can fix it asap.

Hasn't happened to me, would be sad if it did since it's new, and hope it never will (yeah right...)

Was wandering if there were any special keypresses I could use to reboot

There is no need for breaking your fingers by pressing all buttons,just hold the power button as long until it restarts

happens to me all the time, very annoying. The screen just goes black but the background apps continue to work (at least half the time anyway).

ALL the time? I wouldn't have had the patience to keep with it and probably have sent it back or something...
