Is it the battery's fault or my phone is broken for Samsung Galaxy S5?

My phone is experiencing the following as of late:
[Details] - [Occurrence]
1) Easily heats up (not simply hot, but real hot) - sometimes; only when used or connected to internet
2) Fast Drain battery - all the time
3) Resets - most of the times
4) Simply shuts down - sometimes, mostly when battery level is at 70% below
5) Slow charging - all the time when charging, takes about 4 - 6 hours from 1% - 100%

While it is still usable, these are quite bothering me. It happens around 2 - 4 times per week, meaning it works normally during the rest of the week. It has no pattern on when will it show these symptoms, it just does it randomly.

I am quite new to this gadgets and stuffs, so I don't know that much.

If you haven't change the battery since you first got it, its time to change the battery. Make sure you buy original samsung battery or TRUSTED 3rd party battery.
