Samsung mini s5
Auto Updated system today and now crashes after boot when screen swiped or soon after.
Have to remove/replace battery to fire up again.
Thanks in anticipation.

Nothing... just goes dead on swipe.
On lock screen, messages and alerts are swipeable but after main screen swipe goes dead.
answer call ..dead
did a cache clean on startup. no change.
Factory reset ?

Try going to Settings, reset the auto lock screen to what you had before.
Power it off, then restart. I saw one the other day, and that fixed it.

Sounds like time to do the factory reset to me.

Ok so did factory reset .. not much changed. Have found it stays on ok (at times )with charger on.
So waiting on new battery to see if that was the problem. 11 month young ??
