Why is the Samsung Galaxy s5 mini such a horrible phone?

by -Liam_Anderson- / September 28, 2015 5:57 PM PDT

Honestly, I have never had such a bad phone, it runs as smoothly as a brick sliding through sand, it just doesn't work. Every app, no matter what app, runs slow, it freezes doing simple tasks, some apps don't even work on the phone. It's just the slowest phone I have ever had and a huge waste of money, I have had this phone for about 6 months and I don't know how I have managed to stay with it, wish I could get my money back but I highly doubt I will, just letting you guys know not to buy this phone, it's like they didn't even try to make it good.

Sold mine so the frustration ends

I thought it was a good phone initially. But the lag builds up after 3 months of usage and i decided to sell it off because it was just plain frustrating.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
