Default Android phones; what is the bees knees?

I hate iphail, but I also hate my current S6. It's slowing down, has some annoying quirks, and (most importantly) the battery life!!! It's horrible! 2550mah battery is pathetic. So, I'm wanting to know what is better than the s6 and has a strong battery. Liking the ruggedness of the s7 active. One can be had used/unlocked for about $350. Im not opposed to some of these chinese versions. Looks to have rave reviews, depending on make and model. Plus that active has a 4000mah battery. Any other ideas?

I'm really digging my Google Pixel. Shit ain't cheap but it's got a great camera, great battery life, fast charging, and it's pretty damn slim (I have the regular one, not the XL).

I like my s5 active. It has its quirks but all in all it does what I need and probably a lot of other shit I don't. New galaxy has a bigger battery but also has a 4k screen so I'm not sure that it'll have great battery life.

Thats why i carry two phones, incase I drop charge on one I have the other .

Option for the battery issue. The girlfriend bought me one these portable chargers. This one charges my s4 pretty fast. One may say, well it's something else i have to carry but if you need it carry it.

I like my Galaxy S7. Wish it had a longer battery life though. About a day and a half, with moderate use.

Just jumped from the Galaxy s6 to the LG G6. Absolutely loving the phone, and my god the battery life is so much better.

I use the fingerprint sensor a lot, and the s8 moving it to the top, besides the camera, wasn't going to fit me. Also, I absolutely hate the edge screens. Those were the two reasons I went with the G6 instead of waiting for the S8.

I haven't heard of them including that feature this go-around, but I hope not. I want to get a new tablet at least, possibly a newer phone too, but not if they explode.

I got a Galaxy S8+ last week and I'm loving it. It's very similar to my old S7, but seems to run a little faster and has a few more bells and whistles. I'm digging the iris scanner to unlock the phone - works awesome.

Gs8 has the newest cpu and is a good phone, but they're fragile, so I opted for the G6 and love it so far.

If any of y'all are in the market for an S8 or S8+, this appears to be a pretty damn good deal Samsung is offering if you're cool with T-Mobile. It's a true buy one get one free offer:
