    Default How long before the USB door falls off?

    I have set the over/under at 2 months. 4 months if you use wireless charging.

    What will you take? Over or Under?

    Is it replaceable? The hinge part I mean?

    I've had dumb phones with hinged covers over the charging ports. Don't think I ever had one fall off even after years of use. Hopefully the same will be true of the S5. So I guess over for me.

    Should last more than 4 months. The USB cover is still in tact on my Galaxy Rugby Pro that I used for over a year.

    It seems like it's pretty sturdy. I'm confident it'll hold up. /knock on wood just to be safe!

    Probably going to get a wireless charging cover to prevent this.

    I see you're trying to find a chink in the armor. Good luck! For the most part, Samsung devices are built pretty solidly.

    I do think it's a weak point, but I got my old Palm Pre to last a bit over a year and that was more fragile than this one.

    not in the least! I'm stoked about the phone being waterproof. Take off the cover and there goes that.

    The cover is much sturdier than the cover on the DNA. I don't think it will come off on during regular use, but if someone is foolish I'm sure they can pull it off.

    Sorry to disappoint everyone, but mine fell off in under a month with simply charging daily. I didn't try to do anything silly like tear it off myself or anything. I have had other issues with the phone as well; not sure if anyone else has? Getting to be very frustrating and disappointing, when at first I was so excited.

    Mine is still like new and have owned the phone since launch day.

    I eliminated this BS issue by spending more than I wanted too but they have their advantages.

    Samsung Wireless Back Cover ($40).
    Kingston 64GB microSD UHS-I ($40).

    I still had a $20 coupon for accessories and couldn't think of anything else to buy, so I picked up...

    Samsung Extra Battery Kit ($30 after coupon).

    Bought on June 6th. Broke on July 17th. Little plastic connector just broke from normal use. Called Samsung. I do have a warranty but it is basically useless since I have to send the phone in to Plano TX for repair. No phone for 9 to 11 days but the shipping is "prepaid".
    Let's just call this "not waterproof".

    Look on ebay-deal tom com has them for $2.99 at this time. Even though from china took about 7 days. I ordered 3 for safe keeping even tho I didn't need at this time. Called a OEM USB Charger Dock Port Cover Waterproof For Samsung Galaxy S5 SV I9600 G900. There all over Ebay. Good Luck

    You can just remove the screw in the back and take it off normally
