    Default Talked my buddy into getting the S5 and his screen went black.....

    We popped the battery out and it's okay now, I know there is another thread on this but I don't see any resolution on whether a factory reset is the fix or he needs a software update or what.

    It could of just been a crash. If it happens all the time though it could definitely be some defective hardware.
