    Those people probably aren't posting about it here since we are mainly Android -- they're most likely on iMore to keep with rumors / discussions about it .

    OP asks a great question. Went to VZ earlier and checked out the Note 5. Looks beautiful.

    However, after all these years on Android, I'm waiting for IPhone 6S and 6S+ release.

    Went upstairs to Apple store and was GUARANTEED a replacement battery for an IPHONE in case I buy one and the battery degrades... with a basically one hour wait/install time.

    Got a bogus answer from the Mgr at the VZ when I asked same question and being a business phone... I need service. .. when I need it.

    So yes... even though a long term android user... I'm looking to see what's available. .. elsewhere.

    I've used both android and iOS over the years. Have a iPhone 6+ right now. Going to wait and see what the 6S+ brings to the table and then decide between that and the Note5/Egde+. If the 6S+ doesn't get 2GB of RAM I may switch back to android and the Note 5. There are several apps that I like to keep open but the data always has to reload on them on my 6+ due to memory (RAM) limitations..

    Heh, I'm not really an apple fan. I'm a fan of technology. Most Apple fans don't even know what RAM is and apple never talks about RAM when they announce a new product. But it does affect the performance of the iPhone 6+ for my usage. It's not a debilitating issue just more of an annoyance.

    I played around with the Note 5 at BB the other day and it seemed really nice. I'm also concerned about idle battery drain and battery life overall with the Note 5. The iPhone 6+ is the only phone I've ever had where I don't worry about battery life/how I use my phone. Not sure I want to give that up..

    I went from Apple to the Note 3, turned it in because the GPS. Was getting serious about the Note 5, went & ck'd it out, beautiful. But it's now confirmed, the GPS is still broke, so I'll be keeping the 6+ until it is confirmed fixed.

    Ummm, I've had my note 5 for a week, my GPS works fine. What's broken about it? Where is this "confirmed"?

    Just curious is all.

    I use both I am using the 6Plus right now but I ordered my gold platinum unlocked note 5 today, the reason I am not waiting is because I already know whats coming its kind of like what note fans got with this note vs the note 4. I usually rock Apple the first year of the new model redesign year not the S year as that is never hardware outside of some minor changes. Now this time next year I will not be buying the new Note 6 I will be waiting for the iPhone 7 since that is the redesign and new features and new OS update cycle. I don't limit myself to one OS I think both OS have good with the bad which is why on apple's off year I carry android.

    I wouldn't let someone pay me to have or use an Iphone. A phone I consider for teenagers and hipsters in their 20s. Could care less about the Iphone or Apple.

    No because I'm pretty certain the iPhone6 won't come with a stylus and have proper writing input options. I still can't understand why people keep comparing the Note5 to all these other phones out on the market.

    Comparing the S6 with the other phones, I can see. But, comparing the Note phones with any other phone that doesn't incorporate a Stylus is really an Apples and Oranges comparison. When/If the LG G4 Stylus comes out, then I can see some comparisons and who's got what and which is better. I really look forward to it and hope it makes a big hit. From what little I've read online and their possible specs, even with SD Card expansion, it still may only be half the phone the Note 5 is without SD card support.

    I had the iPhone 3gs twice and I ended up selling them to get a HD2 then the first Nexus I get bored with ios, I'm not saying they're not good products they're just not for me.

    A month and a half ago I got an iPad air 2 and I got some nostalgia since ios looks the same pretty much, it was a nice looking device but once I started using it, I realized why I had stopped buying apple products, they become very boring and unless it's jailbroken there's a lot of things you can't do, that you can with android straight out of the box.

    I like Android, I use widgets, and I like customizing my phone how I wanted, so I ordered a Note 5

    This is the same question I have. Nothing compares to the Note Line, unless you buy it just for the big screen. I've seen a few other post asking about the S Pen and "do you use it?". It is the reason I've had the 2, 3, 4 and now Note 5. I hate the thought of having a production device like this and not having the S Pen.

    For the most part iOS with one meg of ram is faster then the s6 with 3.

    Nope. Pretty sure no Stylus on the new iPhone. They have a good ecosystem and good products so my hats off to them. But they don't play well with others, and I'm done with vendor lock. At least my Microsoft and Google services play well everywhere. I cannot even get iCloud.com to load on Chrome for Android! No thank you.

    I completely agree. It doesn't seem reasonable to compare the Note series with the iPhone Plus series unless you're merely comparing them based on screen size. The Note series is more for productivity, which is why many people that purchase one look forward to utilizing the stylus. It seems more reasonable to compare the S6 Edge Plus with the iPhone Plus series because neither come equipped with a stylus.

    Coming from someone who uses both iOS and Android I use the phone more like a computer so I need proper multiwindow, background multitasking and a lot of DRAM. Android offers background multitasking while Samsung expands on that with multiwindow. iOS currently offers neither. iOS background multitasking is limited to 3 minutes in the background then the app and connection are killed so can't have SSH/telnet, IRC, ftp/ftps/sftp, media server like BubbleUPnP, etc. running in the background. So, the iPhone is more like a jumbo iPod while the Galaxy Note is more like a pocket Surface Pro.
