    Like some others have said, the S5 may be better for your 11 year old since it's a little more rugged and durable. But since you're going on the Edge plan, you're barely saving any money by getting the S5 instead of the S6. If you're going to get him the S5, I'd give it a month or two and see if the price drops. After the S6 is official, I'd imagine they would be reducing the price significantly basically just to get rid of them. You can let him use the S4 until then.

    Or if your 11 year old is of the rare trustworthy and careful kind, then go ahead and get him an S6.

    Not happy about the fact that the S6 has no replaceable battery. Completely 180'd my decision to get one. Actually three.....one to replace my S4, one to replace my wife's S3, and one for my 11 year old son who will be getting his 1st phone.

    Do I get three S5s instead and wait for Samsung to come to their senses on their next Galaxy? I will be switching over to Verizon's Edge program as well in order to eat the costs of three new phones.
    A Samsung S5 for your 11 year old son? Really? I would not recommend doing edge with your son. If he breaks that thing you guys are screwed. However, if that were me that kid is waiting to get a smartphone for a few more years

    You can also carry an external battery pack for those full long days at disney world and let it charge in your back pack for an hour or so.
    So, you buy a slim phone and have to plug in an external battery to use it?

    This is PROGRESS?

    No, I plug it in to charge it, not to use it.
