    My first galaxy phone. My previous one is an iPhone 4s and I have some questions.

    -I used to download mp4 videos from Youtube and put them on my iPhone. How do I go about doing this to my S5?

    -What's the best program to transfer files from the PC to the 5S? Like pictures, videos, etc..

    -I got the 5S connected to the PC right now and it's charging at a pace MUCH slower than my iPhone 4s, is this normal?

    The best app that downloads youtube videos directly onto your on-phone memory.

    And samsungs charge slower than Iphones, unless it's turned off.

    you don't need a program to transfer any files. Just plug your phone into your computer via USB. Open up the memory (the phone's or a micro usb's) and create a folder.

    Lets say you want music files. Call the folder "Music" and just drag and drop the mp3s or flacs from your pc to your phone.

    You can also get ASTRO file manager on your phone to make it easier to find certain files that you added from your computer.

    naturally, you're mooching off of the PC through a USB connection as opposed to an actual plug/power outlet

    Basically what you do is, throw it away and get a better phone.

    What makes it better than the S5? The metal doesn't matter if you wear a plastic case

    This is going to take some getting used to. I can't even figure out how to put in a password when you turn on the phone.

    Do this after the warranty is expired and don't have insurance.

    Rooting your device voids both of these. Trust me. It almost happened to me, Sprint thought my Note2 was rooted, and I actually bought an app that scanned my phone to detect any evidence of rooting.

    To transfer files between PC and S5

    Wired: Connect USB cable to PC, drop and drag
    Wirelessly: ES File Explorer app or Air Droid, available on the Google Play Store. Pushbullet can also tranfer pictures, files, etc. from phone to PC

    The S5 may take longer to reach a full charge because the battery capacity is larger, 2900 mAH. The capacity of the 4S is 1420 mAH. It's like a gas tank. It'll take longer to fill a 29 gallon tank than a 14.2 gallon tank. The Snapdragon 800 allows faster charging. I have a Nexus 5, which charges pretty quickly.
