Not again, AT&T! What is it with America’s second largest wireless service provider and essential software updates lately? Both the HTC One M9 and M8 got their Marshmallow makeovers on Ma Bell way too late compared to models locked to other networks, the OTA 6.0 rollout for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge was a bona fide fiasco, and now Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon leave their common enemy behind as far as the S5 is concerned.

But today’s story isn’t about the “DeATTh Star”, with Big Red instead capturing the spotlight even on the heels of the Now Network and Magenta. You weren’t the quickest to send Doze Mode goodies and the like to the spring 2014-released Samsung Galaxy S5, Verizon, yet your effort is still appreciated.

After all, we have to be honest and admit the plastic-made, Snapdragon 801-powered 5.1-incher hasn’t been on our minds for a long, long time. Check that, we did remember fondly of it last month, when Amazon sold it at $160 in certified refurbished form with an included warranty. It’s almost $180 now, which isn’t quite the same thing, though it remains the best deal available to folks in the market for a GS5.

Should you be in that particular market? Not if you’re looking forward to OS version N as well, or want above-par build quality, cameras, battery life and multitasking.
