    can the screen be seen on sunny days? Does it over heat? Any know issues with the phone, like updates that break things, ect? any pet peeves?I have now a samsung galexy core prime which is a budget smart phone, but I am able to keep my screen on full brightness and it wont hog my battery, this is important to me, because I need a phone that I can see during the day time

    Its between this one and a lg g3. thanks

    Haven't used mine daily in over a year but didn't have a issue with the screen. Battery life depended on usage and usually made it through a work day without having to charge till I got home.
    Don't believe the waterproof hype. About as waterproof as a regular S5. Screen is expensive to replace if ever damaged and external speaker is weak. Full of Samsung and AT&T bloat.
