Depends a lot on the person's usage pattern too. Assuming same build quality on all phones, a person with delicate handling will take his longer than the one with rough handling. I've seen people yank the charging cables off the phones and crying when it breaks.

that's would be ****ing annoying as hell. Samsung bought an unnecessary step when charging. I charge my phone multiple times a day because I have a habit of charging when I'm at the desk because charging prevents the screen from going off and I prefer to have the phone screen on all the time because I use it as a calendar, reminder and a timer when I'm working.

That's why S5 sucks balls.

I'm waiting for the Note 4, hopefully it will not have any covers.

The cover is for water sealing. You could simply take it off if you don't want it.
