    Come on, more must have been done.  Where's the rest of the changelog? 

    • What about the camera opening responsiveness that the international version received?
    • What about bluetooth connectivity with car kits?
    • What about network issues through bluetooth calling?
    • What about low signal bars displayed?  Any new radio firmware?

    Keep in mind, Other versions of S5 (especially European), are totally different, (different processor).

    Also, I have not seen any issues with the S5 as far as with bluetooth connectivity with a car or headsets.

    The S5 sucks...i have returned an S5 for both network connection and bluetooth issues and about to do the same with the replacement S5 Sport. I have a Jeep with their UConnect System and it worked flawlessly with my S2...never an issue. The issues with the S5s and the UConnect are as follows:

    Pairing is not an issue.

     

    Calls disconnect after 1 and a half rings.

     

    When a call is canceled or disconnects on the Uconnect System, the call on the device acts like it is still connected with the screen showing green as connected and "End Call" button red and active but you can't hear anything if you put the device up to your ear.

     

    If the call is initiated via the device, it does not automatically switch over to the paired UConnect system.

     

    None of these issues occurred with my S2.

    DJ, did  you need to have your Bluetooth version updated on your phone?  I'm curious because my indicators are that it's version related, that the U-Connect version may be out of date on the Jeeps.  - Christy

    No, I didn't do any updates on BT. I actually have used my S5 sport on 2014 Expedition, 2013 F150, 2013 Accord, after market "Dual" cd/mp3 car stereo, and a 2014 chevy (don't remember the specific type).

    On all of them, I synced the phone with hands free and music play via BT.

    I had to say, the expedition was a bit difficult, kind of complicated menu lol but once connected, it will always reconnect via voice command.

    Also it will not matter if I initiate a call on the phone or via voice command.

    I sent you a PM that could solve your issues with the Uconnect system.  It's an issue on both sides of the fence (Samsung/Sprint and Uconnect) but I can help.  Check out your private messages and let me know.
