This Android phone doesn’t support FaceTime, so you’ll need to video chat on something else. The battery is removable, which is great for changing it yourself, but be careful if you drop the phone, the back will pop off easily.

Pros and Cons

  • Above average battery life and easy to change
  • Wide angle lens
  • Average speaker

This sleek phone has the added benefit of being water resistant, so no worrying if things get a little wet! This is another Android phone, but with the excellent pictures and videos you’ll capture, you won’t miss FaceTime. Speaker quality is decent, although not the top of the line. If you plan on doing any video dating, I would highly recommend the Galaxy S7 Edge as a top choice.
