    If the S5 is anything close to my IPhone 5 I'll be happy. I get between 4-6 hours of usage time on this thing. It is taking SUPER long to get this thing in the mail though lol.

    Based on s3 experience and play with s 4 their battery suck. Doesn't last longer then 6 hours . Your holding your breath if s5 last longer then 6 hours.

    It must last more than 6 hours. I'd be very surprised if it didn't. I'm not expecting 6 hours of screen on time if that's what you're referring to. 4 hours of screen on time would make me a happy person. If the S5 doesn't make it 6 hours on a full charge then it will be getting traded on Craig's list for an iPhone rather quickly lol.

    Not trying to be biased but beside apple . Motorola if not moto already have the best battery of all android and maybe of any manufacturer. Including apple .

    I believe it depends on what apps and services you have running and what modle moto your referring to. I go from early morning until late at night when I go to bed I am finally down to 45 percent or so. My moto I had to pkug in by lunch time.

    Welcome to the forum HK! :)
    Which device are you going with?
    btw, I had the original Casio GzOne when it first came out years ago. Extremely study flip phone that stood up to everything I threw at it. :thumbup:
    Good luck with your new device!

    How often do galaxy phones come out? Is it once a year, or do they do two like apple? I ask because I'm not due to upgrade until June 30th and kit kat has made my HD maxx a bit more livable. And I'm not sure what to make of all the prime rumors.

    I recently flew from Los Angeles to Philadelphia. I played on my phone the entire time while listening to music by Bluetooth. As we landed, I still had 50% battery left. Three people around me turned their iPhones on. I guess they were afraid of their batteries draining over a 5 hour flight.

    I'm quite happy with it. If S5 is similar or better, I'd be a happy camper.
