Temperamental is an understatement! Ugh I'm so sick of this. Do u have any smart phones that haven't given you grief? I really don't want to shill out to Samsung for my next purchase but I'm at a loss for a decent Android! It's sad to me so many people are getting fleeced for charger port replacements and such..

This is not the solution. I've had my S5 for four years because I have attachment issues. One huge reason I've bought and sent back many phones to replace this Samsung s5 is because it's obviously got hardware issues, but I have yet to find a replacement so I've been stuck with this phone that was purposefully or on accident programmed to break for a couple days seemingly randomly. After years and all avenues exhausted, I've concluded that ANYTIME I PLUG IN A NEW CHARGER CORD TO THIS PHONE ITS BATTERY TIMES OUT TO ZERO AND ACTS LIKE IT WONT CHARGE. I say "ACTS" because within 2-3 days it will charge just fine once again with the same battery and charger cord! You just have to.. Wait. Over the years I've bought countless chargers and batteries just to figure this out. My phone has nothing wrong with it besides it being programmed to ACT like there's something wrong with it. I've just been forced to wait it out each time I have to get a new charger cord or accidentally try plugging it in with a new one. My best guess is the "glitch" has to do with its Fast Charge cord feature or whatever. I'm here because yet again it's glitched out. Hopefully it'll rectify by Monday so I can get the info I need to get to my Infusion Treatments and hopefully my brother makes it to his out of state trip to New Mexico OK considering I'm the only one who knows where he took the bus and where he went! SAMSUNG YOU MAKE SO MUCH MONEY, WHY MESS WITH OUR LOW INCOME LIVES?? A PERSONS PHONE IS THEIR LIFE!!! The real solution is to for Samsung to take this battery lock feature out of the hardware and stop conning people! Or go find a phone that functions for the amount of money you spend on it. Simple yet made impossible by predatory phone manufacturers. If anyone knows a better alternative that allows messenger to pop over YouTube and chrome while using and also has screen shot feature please let me know!
