    Hello.
    I'm noticing something very strange with my phone. Everytime my phone drops the phone restarts. Afterwards, the battery level on the phone will be different. Today, I dropped it and it restarted to 18%, it drops once more and its at 31%. I'm suspecting a faulty battery? I did the battery spin test and it did not spin at all. I am very curious as to what is happening. It is a refurbished phone via the GeekSquad Phone Warrenty program.

    Looks like your battery is dead. Even if it doesnt spin. Buy a high quality trusted brand or OEM battery. Beware as many fake low quality battery is listed as "original" and looks almost the same as the real original one.

    Try putting a layer of sellotape, or similar, on the base of the battery and please, STOP dropping it!

    But the S5 is strong!!! I dropped mine from my 1 meter tall table (3 times i remember) and no crack and visible damage at all! (I use no case).

    Dead battery is a possibility, or there is a connection that has been knocked loose because of the drops, in which case, things become a little more complicated
