  1. Did all of these, and it helped, for about a week. Now I have to clear the cache partition about every week, else it gets laggy again. Really considering switching to cyanogenmod at this point. :|

  2. I loved my Galaxy S5 the first year, until I got the stupid Lollipop update! Phone was extremely laggy with all my apps; it would take sometimes 1 minute to open an app after it's been clicked. Also I experienced lots of apps crashing, it was just a disaster. I tried everything out there to resolve it. Factory resets, clearing out memory and some other tricks I stumbled upon online. Most would not work at all and when they did work it was only for a brief time, like 10 minutes! Then every few months my carrier(T mobile) would come up with different updates to supposedly fix the "bugs, crashing, and battery life". Yeah right! With every update, the phone became even slower. At times I would get so mad I would wanted to just throw it and bang it on the floor with a hammer. I wanted a new phone but with my current financial situation it was impossible. After dealing with this for the past 6 months, the piece of shit finally accidentaly dropped from my pocket on carpet and the screen was scratched. Within hours the whole screen turned black. Finally!. This was a blessing in disguise and I advise people to NEVER EVER WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THE GALAXY S5!

  3. I had this issue constantly, the freezing issue would happen every 2 to 3 hours, my battery would drain for no reason. I rooted it and installed a custom rom havnt had any problems since

  4. really good tips, I already try everything even the factory reset but only works for 2 or 3 weeks and then is still running slow and freezing. I personally think that the update makes the phone slower to make us to buy the new phone

  5.
