    I've been trying to decide on a phone now for a few weeks and I'm seeking some advice. I'm on T-mobile and my budget is around $350. Here's what I'm looking for:

    -Supports T-mobiles band 12 as I will be using the phone indoors alot; and since I'm paying for it I would like to use it.
    -5' + screen as I watch a lot of videos/streams and this device is replacing my small tablet as well. (I prefer Amoled displays but its not 100% necessary)
    -MicroSD expansion.
    -Battery life! I would really love for it to be removable as well.
    -I would prefer to buy the product new.
    -A decent camera

    Extra bells and whistles: NFC, finger print scanners, and ir blasters and the like are all neat but not really playing into my choice.

    I should mention that I'm looking to buy the phone unlocked and not on contract.

    Given the list of what you'd like for T-Mobile,just the price point/new/I-R Blaster/Band 12 alone narrow the field to pretty much what I listed previously.
    AT&T phones are T-Mobile friendly as well,but,if you're into modding (root/ROMS),that's a no-go.
    Using http://willmyphonework.net/ will hasten your search,as you may find international versions of the models listed that support Band 12.
    Good luck in your search & again,WELCOME TO ANDROID FORUMS ! :thumbsupdroid:

    The V10 looks nice but I'm concerned with the battery life. If I had to give up band 12 (I'm currently using a lg g3 that ill be returning due to defects and it doesnt have it) the galaxy s5 seems like a decent choice.
