When it comes to the best battrey life on Android phones it goes to HTC one max then LG G flex and both phones/phaplets comes with non removable battrey.

With increasing processing speeds and functions, its current battery with a full charge can never suffice for someone who would constantly be updated with social network notifications, downloads, email, and gaming.
But because Apple still wants to be thinner and small, the battery hasn't grown much. Try using LTE on an iPhone. It'll last only 3 hours. Jobs never signed off with LTE. He knew a full charge won't last with such a tiny battery.
It's such an irony that Sony and HTC followed this with their top devices, forcing users to carry ugly portable power banks and chargers to plug in the middle of the day. I thought the main point of a sleek modern device is to be MINIMALIST, and not have to be plugged in more than half the time your are using it. A minimalist concept would also mean less things - like not carrying anything else.
I am a heavy user, and would only just carry a small thin battery late afternoon. No worries about running out even with downloading torrents, internet radio, notifications, watching shows, and using my device as a wifi hotspot. I'd change to a fresh battery only late afternoon, and that battery will last for another 12 hours of heavy usage with a 5 hours+ of actual screen on usage. I charge the spent extra battery with a cradle charger at home while I sleep.
Thank Samsung has been maintaining a removable battery, as I'd rather be really WIRELESS entire time I'm using my mobile device. Try saying that with an iPhone. Yeah, you must really love carrying a charger and power bank.
Amazing specs on paper but which really matter is that how is this device performs cause if we go back to 2014 then we'll see that Samsung Galaxy-S5 had great specs on paper but s5 is very sluggish. Now i know why apple doesn't give the option of removable battery cause that is not needed but if Samsung doesn't do that then we'll not be able to do anything else without waiting if it hangs , just 2 days ago i was playing nfs on s5 and suddenly it stopped working and i didn't had any other option so i had to remove battery and i had used iPhone 4s,5s i didn't experienced any lag whatsoever

Removable battery is not the reason for lagging so don't make it a reason for Apple not to have a removable battery for their iPhones with the functions of 2011 phones.

Metal pretty. Metal feel good. Plastic not shiny. Plastic not pretty. Plastic not feel good. Plastic feel cheap. There you have it, that's the simple answer.
gotl motl, 06 Apr 2014what Mr, im using Galaxy s5 Nice Phone.Do you have it are you happy with it tell me about it please I am thinking about it thank you !!!
Looks like just another Galaxy Ace. Looks awfully cheap. Even a cheap Alcatel phone looks better. It has good specifications though. But I'd still go for an LG G2 over a GS5.
the s5 will have a slightly faster interface with a few different software features i fin dit hard to beleive most users will have the time to use all features i myself force myself to even use half of them
the note 3 vs s4 is just 2-3 secs in boot time i expect the same with the s5 vs the s4 the bench marks are going to be double or more because of the in out of the cpu and gpu but in realworld use i think its barly going to be somthing to cry about i see the real diff in screen size as we went from the s3 to the s4 is slight but noticable 720p to 1080p was big tho the real kickers here will be the touch finger print junk the dual video call thing the water proofing and that they are doing somthing with a flash and camera sensor app for heart rate junk , me pesonally i will get the biggest kicks out of the fingerprint thingy as apple will no longer have somthing samsung doesnt and the water proofing thing the camera junk doesnt interest me much but the super fast focus does and the ability to adjust focus after words does .. i own both apple and sammy and the non focusing thing while recording is apples big F up example i try to rec a video of a serial on a ps3 then stand back to show the unit working in action its impossible on apple because the focus will not change while recording or zoom while playback my biggest rant of apple right now
im impressed,but dont you think it was a bit too early to release it?
Amazing specs on paper but which really matter is that how is this device performs cause if we go back to 2013 then we'll see that s4 had great specs on paper but s4 is very sluggish.

I see a lot of parrots in here repeating the propaganda Apple initiated saying metal is good & premium, plastic is bad and cheap. Why exactly? I have yet to read a study that puts metal above all other build materials for practical purposes. There is no evidence that metal adds any additional durability over plastic. Both devices will break when dropped. Personally I would rather a manufacturer put more of their budgetary dollars behind what's under the hood in terms of hardware and software. I think Samsung succeeded in that area over the competition and that's why I'll buy the S5. I don't think the newest Samsung, HTC, or Sony are really innovative but I do believe the S5 gives the best bang for your buck in terms of the additional features over the competition.
Whoever says that plastic is shit, i want u to watch a video on a guy driving his Tesla S model over the S5. The camera and flash glass broke BUT the LCD, front Glass and all buttons including the finger print sensor all never damaged and still worked. I watched the video over and over and still amazed. Yes all metal is good and dandy but if u damage a small part of the metal on the HTC one, you will need to replace the whole device not just that part. The S5 is more advance then a simple iPhone and many phones out there. The HTC One still has a 4MP camera, non removable battery, no waterproofing or dust proof, no kids mode, they lack of many things.
I wonder how many clueless people post on here. I have read reviews on most devices on here and its obvious that many are clueless about plastic and how phones work.
