    You answer your own question no it wont fit . and I think the cable is missing a led or one extra is added. The plug wont connect. But if you get a new s5 full screen just allow the inside to dry out much as possible before you reuse the s5 again

    Take the phone apart, remove battery, etc....

    get a gallon zip lock bag or bigger. The more the better.

    Place the phone in the zip lock bag, fill it with fresh white rice and zip it closed tight.
    leave the phone in the bag of rice for a couple of days.

    that will suck out all of the moisture in the phone.
    hopefully that will fix some of the problems.

    Hey I thought this would be a good place to post this q, if it aint plz bear with me...

    I have a screen problem and i really cant find metion of it online. I got a new sgs5 maybe three weeks ago. After 2 days some weird scratches appeared on the display, only visible when the screen was dirty, they look like spots in the glass about a mm wide and a couple of cm long. I would add a picture but its hard to see on a camera.

    I took it to samsung that called it doa and replaced it, saying that it was something that sometimes gets burned in the glass (not your standard amoled-burn-in:s though!). However the same thing happened on the next phone, and the next. i tried to replace the screen but today the same kind of problem appeared AGAIN. I'm abit tired of this crap but i like the modell so im wondering if anyone else has experienced the same problem? Maybe all the screens of a special batch got messad up or something.

    I appreciate any help, guys! what to do lol???

    Haha yeah that would be an interesting thing to ask about... not to mention the impressive good will on Samsungs side for fixing it... no I did not do this myself and I cannot see how I could manage to do it myself either considering how the "scratches" look. Not at all like ur average glass scratch but like dirt inside the glass sort of

    I've just realized that the blotches on the screen probably is the anti-fat coating of the screen coming off. Using a flip cover I noticed the marks on the screen are situated where the edges of the view screen is and as I scratched the edges of the blotches the blotched area actually expanded. Anyone with any kind of experience with these kind of things I would greatly appreciate whatever help you can give.

    According to Samsung the problem is being evaluated in Korea as workshops don't have a clear policy on how to handle these problems, warranty wise, but it's been a month now and I haven't heard anything. I figured somebody else would experience the same problems but I can't find anything similar online

    Wife's niece just found out that will cost her $209 plus tax for her S4. I'm sure the S5 is about the same or worse.
