Need help choosing a phone.

    Any phones that match the following criteria? I plan on buying one for a family member.
    Any help would be great. :)

    Location: U.S
    Price : 300-580$
    Specs : At least a snapdragon 801, and 2GB of RAM. Anything better than that is great.
    Storage : At least 16GB expandable, or 32GB internal.
    Screen size: 4.7-5.7 inches

    Weird stuff:
    Needs to have a waterproof case available, or to be waterproof.
    Edit : No waterproof cases like this.

    No removable backs or removable batteries.

    Side note : Does anyone have an experience with Expansys's warranties? Are they decent?

    Does it have a waterproof case?
    I put that in the weird section for a reason.

    As it pains me to say it since I'm a happy OPX owner and I prefer the 5 inch form factor more, if I was him I'd go for the OnePlus One too.

    I may, unfortunately the z3+ doesn't have a manufacturers warranty from expansys.
    The z3 is like 600$ too.
    :(

    Keep an eye on it though, it might get cheaper as the 5 is being released.

    The z5 isn't getting released in the U.S, so it won't drop much.

    They are exclusive to AT&T, and still really expensive. Out of my price range unfortunately.

    I would, but again, no waterproof cases.
    I'm also assuming the warranty doesn't cover accidental damage, right?
