2012’s Bravely Default turned a lot of Japanese role-playing game tropes on their head, changing up the turn-based battle system and minimising annoying random enemy encounters. Its sequel doesn’t revolutionise things as much, yet Bravely Second is still a meaty adventure with fun diversions. Gorgeous 16-bit era visuals, tweakable difficulty and quirky characters make for a memorable journey.

If you sully this IP68 phone with pizza fingers, you can simply rinse it clean under a tap. It will survive in up to 1.5m of water (up from 1m in the Galaxy S5) and you don’t need to plug its ports to protect it as they are protected by internal rubber seals.
And, given it will survive being submerged for 30 minutes, you have time to fetch gloves before retrieving it from the toilet.
