fast charge is generally a feature that needs to be built into a custom kernel

Don't know about you but my S5 chargers incredibly fast compared to my SIII and Nexus 7. Even with fast charge on.

Agree, my S5 charges at 1.2A given a charger capable of this, and that is fast.

Yes, the S5 charges at 2amp. (Kernel reports 1800mah)

If your phone is reporting that it charges any slower than that, it's an energy deficiency of the charger supply, bad cable, or bad micro usb connection.

While it's true that the phone ships with a 2A charger, the charging current does not exceed 1.2A AFAIK.
