Default Help me decide

Hi guys. Help me decide. I don't know which phone to get. Right now my S5 is at an auction on ebay and I was thinking of replacing it with the G3 but the problem for me is battery life. How bad is the on screen time? I would settle with an M8 but i just can't handle the camera.

The S5 definitely got better battery life (screen on time)

It would be a bit worse/on par with the M8 i had 2 months ago!
The battery is not bad but also not that good.. maybe with some tweaks like greenify, rooting, freezing apps.

I get about 3 hours SOT and 1/1,5 days

Edit: I have the 10G software

I had a s5 and I never got the screen on time as I do now with the g3! All depends on your usage

I get around 6 hours of SOT, thats enough for me. With ART and nova launcher there is also no lagg at all. I considered tobuy the m8 too but since it was the size of the G3 witha smaller screen i chose the G3. I just couldn' get over how much space HTC wasted with the stupid logo in the front. If it's really necessary like they say, they could have at least kept the buttons like on the m7. This way you have the wasted space and onscreen buttons which take away even more screen.
