    Here is a poll that I think the Note 5 might win; even though I'm personally voting for the Note 4. In fact, it's the fact that I prefer my current Note 4 over the Note 5 that got me thinking about this and creating this poll.

    If the Note 4 and Note 5 had both been released and available at the same time, and both offered at their original respective prices on the same carriers, would you have bought a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or a Samsung Galaxy Note 5?

    Please note that I am just interested in these two phones -- for obvious reasons -- although of course feel free to make comments about other phones in the comments section. But it just that, even though it has some appealing features, I personally find the Note 5 an overall step down from the Note 4 and wanted to know if anyone else thinks that, too.

    I have several reasons but latest that I have added is for root reasons. I cannot imagine my TiBU and nandroids on the internal volume. Suicide.

    Note 4 because it will have longer battery life. It will be a lot cheaper too. I dont care if it's plastic or metal, i will put a case on it anyway. The glass back is very slippery and fingerprinty that it is nearly impossible to hold without using a case. The note 4's plastic is a lot better

    Don't be too quick to assume the battery life is less on the note 5. Got mine today and so far looks like a little better battery life.

    The Note 4 easily. The removal of the sd card slot, replacable battery, third mic and IR Blaster, only for the looks? Not my style. My phones go in a case and I don't look at the design of the phone, I look at the screen. Plus, minimal upgrades internally as well. When I bought the GS4 and saw the Note 3 three months later, I disliked the fact I bought the GS4. I waited for the Note 4. Now I look at the Note 5, and I feel even happier with my Note 4.

    I was hoping that design of the GS6 would stay with the S line and not make its way to the Note line, but it did. It's unfortunate imo.

    The note4 is just flat out awesome, and it is a beautiful phone (if you care about that). I dont care so much about a fingerprint scanner, but i would prob use the one on the 5 more.

    Cameras are about the same, so either way is good.

    I do like the new spen on the 5, but the 4 is great too.

    I like the plastic back on the 4 more than the glass on the 5.

    The screens are the same, so lets see if the new processor gives better battery life.

    But yes, the note4 appeals to me more than the 5.. even though i could care less about sd cards or removing the battery.

    I would go with the Note4 solely on the basis of Storage. I don't care about the battery that much. I've never had to replace the one in my Note2 due to being depleted. I read many of the complaints about the battery and wondered if Samsung downgraded the battery size since the new Lollipop is a full 64bit OS compared to the previous versions. I've read in many places over the years that the 64bit OSs are supposed to be more energy efficient anyway compared to the older 32bit OSs since they perform more functions per clock cycle.

    However, for me, I like to keep a lot of files on my phone like documents, music, videos, etc that take up a lot of space. I am not always in the best reception zones fro 4G or even 3G and many times, there just ain't no WiFi around there either.

    Note 5, unless you're saying the Note 4 would have the updated specs and software that the Note 5 has, in that case I would take an updated Note 4.

    Honestly, I would buy neither at the moment. The Note 4 had too little internal storage, yes it has microSD and swappable battery but I always purchased a spare battery and never used it so it was a waste. The Note 5 is a much nicer design, but, if we are only getting 32/64GB options then forget it, if I am stuck with no external storage I want 128GB. What they should have done was make 64/128GB the only options. Memory is cheap and they certainly would garner greater enthusiasm for the devices IF they had more storage.

    Note 4 updated specs or not.

    I won't own a glass back on a phone.

    Note 4. No SD card is unforgivable at least for me. I wish they put a better battery in it but maybe the optimization is better...who knows. The note 5 looks better but now there are 2 sides you need to worry about scratching or cracking which means your more likely to cover the nice design with a case. I do like the note pad feature as soon as you pull out the s pen and it goes straight to a note pad.

    I am in the process of making my Note 4 self aware.

    Note 5

    - Better cameras and camera quick launch
    - UFS 2.0 storage
    - Better fingerprint scanner
    - Better S Pen with ability to write with screen off
    - WAY better design and looks, by a mile.
    - More RAM
    - FAST wireless charging capability
    - the cool YouTube upload thing (I actually think that will be cool)

    I never had a problem on my Galaxy Nexus. It sucked only because I had to keep clearing out space for my backups.

    Note 5 mainly for Samsung Pay- can't believe no one is really talking about this, it's really a game changer! Also 4gb of ram... Otherwise can't beat the 4

    Specs Specs, Specs, always Specs with the Android people.

    I would choose the Note 4 simply because it offers more. SD Card and Removable Battery. Couldnt care less about a camera that's X megapixels better, or a screen that 0.X larger.

    Note 4 it is a productivity device instead of a pretty form over function toy like the Note 5.

    Note 5 is going to be an even bigger wallhugger phone than the s6 was if thats even possible.
