TouchWiz on Galaxy S5 Sport

Is there a way to delete this feature? It's becoming very irritating when I hit the home screen button, and this'd keeps popping up asking me which version of their home screen I want it to use. I click on Always for the regular version instead of the easy version, but it keeps popping back up. And clearing the defaults does NOT help.

Enhance Your Child's Creativity & Reading Skills with Boto the Pink Dolphin

Hello all!

I had been looking for some interesting kid apps on Google Play when I found Boto the Pink Dolphin. Boto the Pink Dolphin is an app that has been designed to improve kids' EQ by the learn-while-you-play method. The idea is pretty awesome and my five-year-old enjoys playing the games in the app. He has also picked up a few words in Korean, one of which I had to look up on Google. ;)

The section of the game that my son loves is running across the colorful bridge to escape the monkey. This is because it's very tricky and he has to make sure he crosses before he runs out of time. Smile Boto the Pink Dolphin is a great way to work on kids' visual learning skills.

I am sure you'd love the game if you give it a try. Smile

Battery life

Background: my first Android phone was the Samsung Moment which I still use. I have seen both 1.6 and 2.1 versions of Android on this phone. I live in an area with fairly good Sprint coverage.

Currently, my Moment gets about 16 hours of battery life with very little talk usage, one to two hours of web usage, and background data turned on so I can get email updates.

With similar usage patterns, my wife's Blackberry gets about 3 days of battery life before she gets down to 1 bar of battery and needs to plug in.

Now for my question:
What sprint phone with Android will get the best battery life in a 3G area (before anyone asks if 4G is an option)

-Thanks in advance for any responses
