This is what I'm waiting for before I upgrade again. Larger high resolution screen with good battery life. It could be a while before I see both.
The Galaxy S5 is now waterproof to 3 meters and dust proof. I read the battery is pretty good.
The Garmin Monterra (Android OS also, but an older version):
waterproof/drop resistant device
screen is made for outdoors
Connectivity to Google Play store over WiFi.
Takes 3 AA batteries for a second power source
It also has a better GPS receiver than cell phones
Not cell enabled. Need pre-download topos and images before you hunt but then works offline which makes battery last a long time.
Comes loaded with some Garmin topo maps
Add your own Apps like MyTrails, BackCountry Navigator, Navionics etc.)
it has a decent 8MP camera that auto geotags the pics etc.
I don't have this device but thought I'd point it out because it's kind of unique.
