Smart phone with FM radio wanted


[link to this post]
 
I have spent ages looking for a new smart phone and narrowed it down to Samsung Note 4 or S5. Then I discover neither has FM radio which I use frequently rather than playing mp3s or my own media (never really saw the point!)

I am graduating from a Samsung Galaxy Ace which has started to behave a little flaky after nearly three years use, and this is why I favoured the Samsung models. I also like the replaceable battery facility.and the microSD port.

Anyone come up with any other phones? 4G preferred but not essential. Being somewhat long in the tooth, a larger screen is needed hence the Note 4.

LG G3 looks promising but battery life is questionable from what I understand.

Edit: I should add - sim free.

Possibly the Galaxy Grand range with a 5" plus screen or go back in time to a Galaxy S3 with a 4.8" screen?

Thanks for your input. I bit the bullet and went with the S5. I downloaded the 'Gold' radio app and it works fine. Doesn't burn that much data either. It's an awesome phone and the screen is clarity itself. The Note 4 was just a tad too big.
