    I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 that I really like. It started rebooting at random a few months ago. I got it stable for a few minutes and factory reset it. Apparently everything wasn't backed up. So goes it.

    Now it reboots endlessly. I did get it stable for a few more minutes, factory reset it again, and when I was signing in to my Samsung acct, it started rebooting again - even while charging.

    I tried to get it into safe mode. Worked once, and immediately started rebooting again.

    This is my favorite phone. I have an S2 which I've had for over seven years, and it's going strong - even loaded with apps.

    is your S5 rooted? Can you boot into recovery and if so is it stable? It could be a bad battery or possibly an emmc/mmc hardware failure.

    Try reflashing the firmware or as stated above it could be hardware failure.
