> A test page will be appeared on the screen. On the test page, you will see different features names and touch on that feature for which you want to perform a test. For example, if you want to test the touch screen sensitivity of your Galaxy S5, then tap the Touch button.
Different options/buttons will be prompted to you for test such as the device’s receiver, LED colors, vibration, mega cam, touch, sensor, dimming and more.

If you find any of the test results are failed, contact with Samsung support or with your carrier and escalate the problem.
