Does anyone know if the download booster function where large files are downloaded over Wifi + LTE is able to be used on VFNZ?

Is the LTE on the S5 150mbps capable?

NZtechfreak: Wow, people are still asking if their smartphone camera rattling is normal? Yes, the answer is always yes.


/me shrugs 

I've owned well over 50 smartphones and never come across it before. Not once. 



I've never shaken my phone near enough to my ear to hear it, but I have now. I'm glad to know it's standard, but I won't shake it anymore for the sake of risking breaking something prematurely.

In alternate news: 10+ hours and still @ 80%, haven't even tested battery life with greyscale yet. I'm excited to not need to carry a micro USB with be everywhere now.

Also there is protective plastic over the lens of your new S5.

Don't be like me and show off your Ultra HD capabilities to your friends, only to realise you've left the protective plastic over the lens...

Ugh I backed up using titanium on my s4 which has root, can't restore on my s5 without root, don't want to root. 

What is a good way to get my apps and data from s4 to s5 that doesn't require root?

Anyone had any charging issues?

Off my 4 different kinds of external battery, 3 of them will not charge my S5, but they charge the S3, kindle, iPads etc.

Some of my charging cables fit, but some of them dont. The one that came with my kindle will not fit.

Many of my USB wall chargers will not work, none of the 2amp ones I have work.

I used my S4 charger twice over the weekend without issues.

Helium Backup is probably the best option once Google and Samsung accounts have pulled down everything they can.

Sadly it doesn't want to work. It backed up about 12 apps of 80 and then just sat there all night. Unsure why.

Real nuisance having to open the little flap every time you need to charge. I have this on my Xperia tablet and it's a pain. I'd imagine it would be more frustrating with a phone. Which begs the question why Samsung did not include out-of-the-box either wireless charging or charging pins for use with a dock?!

(Hey, but they did throw in a heart rate monitor, pity they did not include more practical stuff first!)

Wireless charging is a pain. It's slower than cabled and you can't pick up the phone and use it when charging. Not that the wireless charge can keep up with using the phone anyway.

Had one cable would not charge and found it was the charger part not the cable part. Even the S5 cable would not charge in it.
