My Samsung Galaxy S5 clone has no signal and is not picking a network?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 clone but it is not picking up a network and won't allow me to set one manually. It worked for the first day but stopped picking up any signal after that.

Unfortunately, cloned devices are never as reliable or well-built as genuine devices. In the case of your Samsung Galaxy S5 clone, your hardware may already be failing since cloned device manufacturers use cheap components to bring costs down. In addition, the software these companies choose to use are often unreliable and buggy, as well. Given these two things, it was only a matter of time before your device stopped picking up cellular signal. There are a couple of things you can try to troubleshoot the matter, though, before you contact the clone manufacturer to schedule a repair or to return your device so you can buy a more reputable phone. First, simply restart your device. If that doesn't work, try manually turning your connections on and off on your phone, and then turn airplane mode on and off to see if toggling your connections will help. If not, you will need to go to your carrier's nearest store to swap the SIM cards to see if yours was faulty. If none of these options work, you will need to call your manufacturer to set up a repair or a replacement.

You have to go into Network under your Settings and set the APN up again. You can usually find the process of setting up the APN for your cell phone provider on the internet. If not then take it to a flagship store and request they set up the APN or contact them from another phone/email.

I have a problem with my S5 clone, it can't switch on, it only writes Samsung?

Everything on the phone was working but now it can't be on, it only writes Samsung, it can charge and before it gave me this problem it wrote something in Chinese

Try to hard reset it. If you are still stuck in the boot loop then you will need to install new ROM on the phone to fix the bootloop. The message probably meant that your OS has stopped working properly. If you install new ROM and the phone still gets stuck in the bootloop then you have a hardware issue.

Here are several VisiHow articles about extending battery life:

Check your Battery in Settings to see what apps are causing the most issue. Use an app like [Purify] to force stop apps regularly throughout the day. CCleaner is a great app for clearing cache and unused folders. Enable your screen to go dark if you are not using it within 30 seconds.

Hi.. my phone is not detecting any SIM card after doing a hard reset?

Hi.. my phone is not detecting any SIM card after doing a hard reset

Factory Reset your phone again. Pull out the SIM from the back of your phone and wipe it off. Clear the Cache Partition before you do a hard reset and then hard reset. If you still can't connect then set up your APN network again. Depending on what your issue was before you hard reset the phone, you may have to get a new SIM.
