    Due for a new phone.

    Advice needed: Get a deal on S5, or go for new S6?

    My s5 was amazing for a long time. Then I got an update and all it does Is freeze up all the time every since. Got another update...no better.
    I was really liking mine, but now it's like using dial up AOL with a Pentium I

    S5 you can expand memory and swap out batteries. S6 can not.

    I heard that but truth be told I never switched the battery in my s1 or s3. I'm still going to get an s5 for now.

    Yeah, those two reasons always come up. Don't know if either would be an issue for me. Are they really big advantages? ( I'm fairly ignorant on these things ).

    Supposedly S6 has a better camera.

    The S5 is everything I need and much more. I wont be buying the S6 because the S5 is that good. I do believe that the S6 is even better but I'll wait till the S5 dies of natural causes or in a freak fishing accident (like my galaxy nexus) before I upgrade to whatever the current best value android phone is.

    Mine did this too after an upgrade. In addition, the phone was most always warm and had crappy battery life. I factory defaulted the phone and now it runs great again with long battery life. Even after I loaded all my appas again.
