    Default Frozen S5 screen - only wakes up by removing battery for 10+ minutes

    The phone has been working great for three weeks. Just this weekend it would freeze at random times. The back and menu buttons work, so I can get to the home screen. But I can only restart it by removing the battery. If the battery is removed for <10 minutes, the screen is still frozen. Removed for 10+ minutes and the screen is responsive again. Haven't added any new apps recently.
    Any thoughts?

    I had the same issue this past weekend. No longer a issue for me.

    Try clearing the cache of some apps or do a factory reset.
