    Default S5 Freezing up and crashing

    It started with the Gallery App being super laggy and crashing the phone. Now it crashes when not even being used and wont restart via power button. Have to eject battery to get it to start up.
    Took to Sprint store. Couldn't get the phone to do Factory Reset. Tech at store was able to factory reset and yet it is still crashing.
    Sprint is now sending me a new one.

    Not a whiz with the phone but do like it. Was an S3 user and now an S5 user. And new to forums. Will check it out. Aloha.

    it's really ****ting the bed now. wont even restart after taking the battery out... then will restart on its own . gotten stuck on spark screen a few times. i might make the move back to HTC if my replacement does any of this.

    Had the same problem. After taking my SD card out, everything is now fine strangely enough. How is your new S5 thus far? Perhaps I might be better off replacing my phone. I am not really having anymore problems, but I also don't have my SD card in the phone...

    This section might be hidden on some phones, but it’s very easy to access. On many phones, you just have to open a certain page in the settings and tap a button seven times. Use Google to figure out how to enable Developer options on your phone if it’s currently hidden (for example, search “enable developer options HTC One”).

    Once you have access to Developer options, simply scroll until you find the following three settings, which may be located on the main screen or within an “Advanced” subsection:

    Window animation scale

    Transition animation scale

    Animator animation scale

    Tapping each of the three aforementioned settings will reveal that it’s set to “1x” by default. If you want to speed up your phone or tablet dramatically, simply change each of those three settings to “.5x” — that’s it.
