"Unfortunately, Google Play services has stopped" error message

oh my goodness! i keep getting error message "Unfortunately, Google Play services has stopped" every 5 seconds. i am unable to do much because it keeps popping up in front of whatever you do so im forced to keep clicking "ok". this started happening 2 days ago. ive recently updated my samsung galaxy s5 to android 5.0 lollipop and have had problems since with battery life but the ""Unfortunately, Google Play services has stopped" is the last draw. ive uninstalled google play updates and deleted the cache and then restart phone. it still keeps popping up! i am so upset!
Google Play Services is an app like any other, except that it runs in the background and supports other parts of Google. Try these steps to remedy the situation:

Access the Applications Manager in Settings, navigate to the 'All' tab and access the...

It may be locked, and even if you can manage to unlock it it simply does not support the AT&T's primary frequency bands for LTE. It's not compatible, at least for LTE.

Battery Life: S5 vs. Note3

Does anyone have any first-hand experience with comparing the battery life between the Note3 and the Galaxy S5?

I'd really appreciate it. I'm trying to decide between the 2 phones since I need to upgrade now (my S4 screen just died).

I've owned both (currently the s5) and battery life on the note 3 will be a bit better (not a lot better, just a little) but the trade off is the note is a VERY LARGE phone and while its easy to see that off hand, its another to live with it...it prov...

No dedicated Menu button.

The review states that there is a Menu button, and a Back button, which is not true. They replaced the dedicated Menu button with a Recent Apps button. As someone who loved having the dedicated Menu button, I think this is quite possibly the worst change Samsung has made on any of thier devices in a very long time. You already had the Recent Apps functionality from holding the home button. I don't know why they decided to deviate, but now I guess we will just have to hope that every single app in existence has its own menu button.
if the app needs a menu button itll have one just like a lot of other devices already do.

the only thing about having that recent apps function before as pressing and holding home button is that a lot of people didnt know about it, now they do and ...

32g and colors??

Anyone know if or when they might release a 32 gig and blue and gold versions of the phone for Verizon?
I have asked my rep and they tell me they don't have any plans at the moment but I am guessing they are going to milk the 16 gig for all they can and then release the 32 gig over 1 month after the 16 gig came out so close to 5 / 11 is my guess we migh...
As of right now no carrier has purchased any rights to the other colors other than black or white. I talked to my samsung rep and he said that he has no clue when or what carriers will carry the other colors.
Isn't that what cases / covers are for? So you can change the look and style of your phone whenever you want?

Black & White are all you need.
