    It has to have one. All phones do for self-protection monitoring. S5 might have two of them depending on the location of the barometer sensor (barometers must be temperature corrected for any meaningful altitude numbers). That said, you have no use for the numbers unless you want to know what is the temperature of a heat generating phone in your pocket.

    It must have one, bc my battery app says the temp of the phone and it's reading 78.2F right now.

    I think they took the Thermometer and the Humidifier thing off the S5

    Read my above post.

    It would be pretty scare if it had a built in humidifier

    I think you mean hygrometer haha.

    Most phones can read the temp of the battery, but I thought he was talking about the thermometer to read the temp. of the surrounding area, not the battery

    Yea that's what I was talking about, in the S4 I had and the note 3 within sHealth wear it measured the temp in your surrounding area.

    The thermometer on the S4 was never accurate anyways. Glad they took it out.

    The CPU has a thermal sensor in it, which reads the CPU temperature. But it only measures the phone's internal heat. If the phone overheats, it'll automatically shut off until it's cooled off again, as a fail-safe mechanism.

    99% of all CPUs today have a thermal sensor.

    But it only reads the device's internal readings - it doesn't give you your environmental temp. Same deal with the barometer and the humidity sensor. They are used to protect the device from high temps, high pressure and and high moisture.

    Yes, the temperature and humidity sensor is gone.

    Sensor box app confirms this

    Although, the battery temp monitor is still there

    I see in the at&t manual downloaded from the Samsung support site, it shows a temperature and humidity port on the top.

    AT&T is wrong. They didn't make different variations of the phone with and without the temperature/humidity sensor

    Download sensor box and confirm for yourself

    Is it at&t wrong or Samsung wrong, since it is downloadable from the official Samsung support site? Just wandering.

    Imo, this is a good thing. They never were accurate on my note 3

    It is accurate if you leave the phone out of pocket for a while and not charging, so your body and battery temperature doesn't affect it

    And not in heavy use either. Too many variables

    I can't imagine how the S5 would be able to measure the outside temp with the internals being sealed from the outside elements I.E waterproof.

    My Sony Xperia Z3 tablet has a barometer but I only use it to make sure it's air/water tight by pressing on the display when the ports are closed to see if the pressure rises within the device. And certainly it does :-) Clever trick to see if it is water tight ;-)
