    Reports are we will see the larger iPhone tomorrow. What must it have for you to leave Android /Note line?

    A proper filing system. An S-pen, a removable battery, micro SD card expansion, ability to set default apps.

    The same sharing abilities as found on Android devices. Multi window, an amoled display which is at least 1080p but preferably 2K. On screen Widgets, gestures like palm swipe to capture screen shots, placing the phone face down to silence a call.

    Smart features in the dialing app like the ability to raise the phone to my ear and for it to dial automatically. Ability to change fonts, ability to wear any gloves and still use my phone.

    That's what I can think of off the top of my head.

    The 5.5 iPhone will not be released on the same day as the smaller one

    I like all that stuff too, I could give up the microsd expansion if they come up with a 128GB model. Having said that, even if it had most of the things you mention, I wouldn't switch back after two years of Galaxy notes until they came out with something like Calibre Companion and a book reader as good as Moon+Reader. For me, those are the killer apps for Android.

    Widgets (home screen not in a notification panel), bigger battery than the Note, an app drawer so every app on the phone doesn't have to be on my home screen.


    Just to name a few .

    SD slot

    Drag and drop

    No iTunes gate

    Allow emulators on iTunes

    Better app management

    None of the above is happening.

    I like my iPad Air 128GB a lot, but would not like my phone constrained like that.

    Also have a Note 2014, but prefer the iPad due to better battery life and MAME is a LOT smoother on the Air.

    Ha! So you pretty much want a Note 4. Good one, shanghaichica!

    I've seen others voice a similar sentiment. Am I the only one that can't stand iOS on a tablet, but don't mind it as much on a phone?

    To answer the OP's question, nothing that an iPhone is going to offer tomorrow would make me leave the Note series, but I plan to get a 5.5" iPhone in addition to my other phones when it becomes available.

    If it had Android OS. Seriously. I have an iPad mini and I love it because of the small size and use it to "bridge the gap" for the iOS users I know but I absolutely would NOT want to look at this on my phone all day. As another post said they are very closed. I don't want to have to keep converting every song just to put it on my phone. Note 4/Android FTW.

    I don't think that there will be many Note users leaving to get iPhones in the first place. It may be slightly insulting to the Note line to assume that it's main differentiator is the screen size because basically that's what it seems that Apple is going to unveil today, that the iPhone is going to become big and then bigger. So to say that Note users are just waiting for a big iPhone is somewhat unfair. The Note line offers a completely different experience and it isn't all predicated on the screen size. The pen, software, ecosystem (Samsung and Google), extras like removable battery and expandable storage make it a very different device. I think that for us iPhone users, the new iPhone announced today will be a welcomed improvement. But for the most part, the experience will be much of the same and I would assume that's basically what we want. Just like the Note 4 I would imagine is what Note users would want.

    If they priced the 128gb model at say $100 over the note 4 then I would consider it.

    I posted a similar thread on iMore, they aren't used to have discussions about multiple devices. I was instantly labeled as a troll and not one person was able to tell me why they would choose the 5.5 iPhone 6 over the Note 4.

    I've been a big fan of the note series, the multi-tasking on the note 4 really piques my interest. Not to mention quad HD super Amoled, "evolved widgets" , removable battery, SD card slot, IR blaster, etc...

    However there is something about iPhones, the build and fluid operation is almost unmatched. iOS8 looks promising and a 5.5" iPhone is very enticing

    Flagship android devices are just as fast and smooth as ios devices now. I had an iPhone 5S earlier on this year and still own an ipad air. My galaxy S5 is just as fast and fluid add both of those devices.

    When you post in opposing forums things like that happen. I like the Note series, but I could explain to you many reasons why I would choose and iPhone over it. Not to say that the iPhone is better for everyone, but it is better for me.

    Iphone 6 hate to say it is a game changer. Less laggy than touch wiz, smooth, way more storage, cheaper, thinner... The only thing I would miss is the customization... That one hurts right there. But other than that. Samsung isn't going to be able to keep up with that. I'll them both and see though.

    As much as I hate iOS, that iPhone 6 Plus was awful pretty....but still won't switch. I like being able to attach things with ease. I do wish however that Samsung gave a quicker release date and price looks like i'm buying the Note 4 off contract and selling my HTC One

    Nothing. I mean seriously, it still has an 8 mp camera. Apple finally has a phone with a big screen and nfc. Whoop dee doo. Even mid grade android phones have had these features for years. Apple is so tired, I can't believe their customers just eat this stuff up like it's the latest greatest thing.
