    Over the last few 15 months my Samsung Galaxy S5 has been causing a severe problem. The phone which i got 3 years ago as a hand-me-down from my dad, came with the charging cover broken off. But ever since it was updated to Android Version Jellybean and other updates afterwards things went wrong.

    It CONSTANTLY thinks the back cover is not on properly (which is a flip-over leather cover with screen lid.) I have checked many times but the cover is on straight.
    With each update the phone seems to have gotten worse. First 8 times a day. But lately it has been bombarding with the 'check battery cover' message over 50 times a day with approximately 7 to 20 second intervals.
    It constantly ends up interrupting what i am doing including including trying to press the answering button for phone call.
    I wouldn't have come here i i wasn't already lost for advice.
    I have factory reset it many times. It's no a rooted or modded phone. It's not using a Micro SD card and it has been driving me crazy.

  2. What version S5 is this? I'm not aware of any S5 that would have come with Jellybean, much less been updated to it. AFAIK they all came with KitKat.
    The battery cover warning doesn't actually detect whether the cover is in place, there is no sensor for that. I'm not sure why it would be popping up multiple times but I'm pretty sure the only way to disable it is by rooting the phone.

    Hi, I have the Note 4 running the same OS version and I have just removed the back and continued using the phone to test it, I have had no notifications about the back being removed, I can't remember it giving these notifications when I had the S5 either so am at a loss to help, but when you sort it out please post the result.

    Nope i checked posts like that in the past  and it did not help. Also my phone is not from American carriers like Verizon so the messages in my phone don't have the tick box for disabling them.
