    It"s doing it again. It doesn"t even get to the end of the sequence before it resets itself. I wonder if this has anything to do with the fever it runs sometimes. In fact, I took the battery out and let it cool off for hours. No, I can't afford another one.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy S5. Yes, I know it's 6 years old. A lot of the time it works more or less ok.

    Its not easy to diagnose. It might be as simple as buying a new battery but on the other hand if you S5 has heated up often it might have damaged the motherboard. Hard to tell

    PS: might also be you have to much data installed to your internal memory.

    With all due respect: it may be time to retire that S5 to the electronic heavens.. fortunately Motorola has a few new devices that I feel are a decent comparison to the S5, minus the IR blaster..

    why not just get a prepaid phone until you can save up for a decent phone? there are some decent ones out there.

    or if anything maybe look into rooting it.

    I haven't had much luck with rooting phones. Maybe it's just the battery. Does anybody on here have a spare Samsung Galaxy S5 battery?
