Hi, I am considering buying the GS5. Does it have any issues? Last time I bought a Galaxy Note 3 from AT&T, the GPS was awful from start to finish. I just need to be aware of issues with this phone, thanks.

I've had a lot of battery issues with mine and many are praising the 4-5 day battery life that i've never been able to obtain. I only get about a day maybe 1.5

My co-worker has a Verizon s5 and his lasted 9 days on a battery with less than 10% left.

I saw the battery statistics with my own eyes.

So what the F#$* is wrong with these phones? Some do well and others don't? I've been through one replacement already, 3 batteries which said OEM (Ebay buy in USA) and have one on the way tomorrow.

I absolutely love android, and I love Iphone too and this is mountains better in battery life compared to my iphone but Knox and the wierd androidOS/system usage probably related to CarrierIQ are huge downers for me

Does he have an extended battery? No way this phone lasts for 9 days unless he uses it 5 minutes a day or something.

I made my return to T-Mobile and got the S5. Black 16 GB, but smaller than my Note 3 capacity, but still a good phone. Going to pick it up tomorrow after a system issue that wouldn't let me pay .

Battery cover issues, wifi calling issues. Besides that good phone. Nothing like my gs3 which was the best phone I've owned. A bit disappointed in this one.
