I've had many phones in the past. Most of which took a misfortunate fall, in which my phone was no longer usable. That's when I finally switched to Samsung comma and I never went back! These phones are already very durable. But add in a built-in suit of armor, if you will comma made by Samsung. That for those of you that are like me, you're set! I must say I work in the food industry. My phone has encountered many of drops, Falls, and Spills... My phone still works just as the day I took it out of the box! The galaxies in particular seem to get better every time. Samsung show us year by year that they care about the customer experience and what we request. This phone has many great features one of which being the wireless fast charging. Besides its durability, battery life is definitely my second important factor in buying a phone. Samsung knocked it out of the Park! So if you are looking for a durable, super charged, smartphone with a beautiful display. The Samsung Galaxy S6...
