    Which one would he recommend? And which one had the best battery life? I have the s2 and the battery life sucks.

    I think I will stick with note. I hate the no sd card slot and no removable battery

    the s5 is absolutely the best one so far. I have an s4 and dh has the s5 they are both really great but the waterproof in the s5 wins. Both of them have great battery life as with all smart phones you have to make sure theres no apps clogging up your processes and draining your battery. clearing out your phone cache helps too

    I'm clearing it constantly and shutting down apps and processes all the time. I heard s2 were a stuff up in terms of battery capacity. WiFi is the main culprit for me but compared to other phones this one is shocking.

    I hear it's a lot like the iPhone. Too much like the iPhone.
    The SD slot is one of the major reasons I got the S5. The waterproof bit I really haven't utilised at all and the bit which covers the bottom broke off DF'S S5 just from ope ing it to charge, so his is no longer waterproof. Sounds like the S6 is going backwards. I'll stick to my 5 and maybe the 7 will be better.

    I think the 6 is going to be a big flop.

    Nope. I have an s3.
    I have waited for ages for it to come out.
    Looked at the specs for it and what it didnt have that the s5 did and decided it would be a step backwards from that.
    I went with the note 4 instead

    I had an S4 destroyed by a leaking water bottle in my bag so was glad when the S5 came out with the water resistant feature. Removing this feature from the S6 just seems like a step backwards, along with the removal of the SD slot and a battery that can't be removed.
    It's like they are just trying to release an iphone with the samung logo on it. It will be really disappointing if this is the path they continue on with their new products.

    He said the S5. I really like it too. I found the s3 was the worst out of them all. Ours were full of issues. We've had no trouble with any of the others.
