    Hello,

    former Apple user here. Just bought a used Galaxy S5 yesterday (2 months old).
    I was hoping it would have 4.4.4 but it already had 5.0 loaded .
    I took some screenshots of the 50% mark and want to know if this is pretty standard for 5.0.
    Couple of other questions:
    -Verizon has 5.1.1, but when I press search for updates it already tells me I have the most recent update (5.0)
    -If I downgrade to kitkit 4.4.4, will battery life improve and will Verizon still continue service with me?

    Thanks!

    3 hours of screen-on time at the 50% mark is pretty good, since that means you're on track for more than 6 hours. That's on the better side for phones. My Nexus 5 usually can get only 2.5-3 hrs at best of screen-on time.

    Don't know where you heard that Verizon released a 5.1.1 version, but that's not the case for me. Still at 5.0.

    As Tritonemusic correctly states, Android 5.1.1 has not been released for the Verizon model, G900V. The latest firmware is Android 5.0, G900VVRU2BOG5

    -If I downgrade to kitkit 4.4.4, will battery life improve and will Verizon still continue service with me?
    If you are on one of the latest latest Lollipop releases for Verizon, OE1 or OG5, then downgrading is no longer an option for you. See, Verizon's new OE1 & OG5 updates prevent downgrading or rooting

    This is not "pretty standard" by any means but as mentioned very good 3 hours dot at 50%. I usually have about 4hrs dot on my s5 throughout the day.
