    Note 4, better screen

    I can understand why you'd want to switch. I was contemplating returning my Note 4 for the Nexus 6. But honestly, the Galaxy Note 4 is a much superior device in my opinion. I'm loving the bigger screen than what I'm used too, but I can't imagine trying to handle a 6" display.

    Only thing that makes me interested in the Nexus 6 at all is the software and the fact it's made by Motorola. If I could get stock Lollipop on my Note 4, it would be the perfect phone.

    Honestly, I'm not sure what all of the heat is on the touch wiz. Coming from the Note 3 and the mediocre G3, the touch wiz isn't as bad as people think, but thats just my opinion and I am on Verizon so maybe other carriers are different performance wise. On top of giving Touch wiz a good week of trial, I switched over to my prized Nova Prime launcher and am even happier than before. My suggestion would be to maybe try out another launcher and see if that helps as well. You arent really losing any special features by doing so.

    Mediocre G3? Really? I just got the G3 and love it. I posted below on a other thread:

    I had the note 4 for 14 days and returned it for a full refund. <br />
    <br />
    Hated Touchwiz. And considering the specs it lagged in certain areas which is just plain sad. <br />
    <br />
    I really wanted the nexus 6. But being already sold out and not being available till end of November I couldn't wait that long. <br />
    <br />
    So I decided to try out the LG G3 and boy am I glad I did<br />
    Loving this phone. It's 5.5 inch screen but can't tell much difference in Size from the note 4. And both being QHD I think the g3 is just as good as the note 4 <br />
    <br />
    Main difference is lack of bloatware and Touchwiz, on the g3. So sad bec I know it has the snapdragon 801 vs note 4 805 or something like that but the g3 just feels faster. It hadn't lagged at all, not like the note 4. . Again I blame Touchwiz, for the Note 4 lag. <br />
    <br />
    To make a long story short, I will no longer go to Samsung phones or Note phones till they greatly improve or just take out Touchwiz. It really is horrible. <br />

    TW use to be terrible. I have a note 3 and now a note 4, and it has been improved a ton with these two phones. Also, these two phones have killer specs and on lesser capable devices, TW maybe bogging the devices down.
    You are completely correct. If I can use a car analogy for a second.

    How can a 444 horsepower car get the same 0-60 second time as one that only has like 291 hp? Because the 291 hp car has like 600-700 pounds less of mass to carry around.

    Now use it for the Note 4 and Touchwiz, . It may have the fastest processor and newest snapdragon but it's loaded with Touchwiz, . How else can you explain the lag when pushing the recent apps button? Some people have written here that is barely noticeable and we're being nitpicking. But I don't think I am. . It is very noticeable and on such a flagship devices such lag should not even exist, let alone be so damn noticeable

    Why I think or at least it appears the g3 is faster than the he note 4. My g3 rarely lags if at all. And I have basically the exact same apps installed on both phones.

    I have sworn off all Samsung phones.

    I had both too and have to disagree a
    , at least with the note 4. Unless you root the note 4, disable alot of Touchwiz or install a custom ROM, I think the g3 is an overall better phone. Unless use the stylus alot, which I didn't

    Just a question: for those that claim they have to have removable batteries, do you actually carry a spare with you? I ask (not in a negative way) because I seriously have not seen anyone carry a spare battery in years. It seems to be one of those "checklist feature requests" that people want to see, but hardly ever use. I use to be one of those people that always wanted a removable battery and I literally never used it because carrying around a spare sucked and/or I always have cases on my phones and I didn't want to go fumbling with everything. So, I'm just curious.
    No, I don't. I do put a battery bank in my bag if I'm going to be away from a charger for a long time though.

    The big plus for a removable battery IMO is that in 12 - 18 months when the battery is starting to degrade it can easily be replaced. I think the smartphone market has matured now and I don't expect to be upgrading every 2 years anymore so a removable battery was a big part of my decision to go with a Note 4.

    I had a G3 before the Note but took it back. It's a very nice phone but the battery life sucked in my experience. My Note lasts almost twice as long.
    I know you can just swap out the battery, but it's not ideal. I'd much rather the phone just last a whole day of normal use. It's even the first phone that I've owned where using the GPS to track a 60 minute run doesn't use a up significant chunk of battery which is an unexpected (and significant) bonus.
    The Note also seems to get better reception by between 1 and 2 bars - which may partially explain the battery performance.

    It is crazy how this phone lags a bit. When I use the recent apps key, there is a huge amount of lag. It feels laggy-er than my Note 3. But, there are always compromises to be made, overall still a great phone. But if the S pen wasn't my top priority, I'd have something else. I got to play with the new Droid over the weekend, it was smoother and faster than my note 4

    I agree completely. Since I hardly ever use the S pen it was an easy decision. I returned the note 4 during my 14 day period at best buy and got the LG G3, and so far Loving the g3. No lag, and although specs weaker, I haven't experienced any lag

    Ive noticed you've stated how many times you love the g3 vs the note4...are you trying to justify your purchase by posting in the note 4 forum? Likewise I haven't experienced any lag on my note 4 besides the recents app which i expect to be updated to fix.


    But seriously ive read your posts in a different thread stating you returned your note 4 within thr 14 day window and love it due to weaker specs yet no lag....

    Let's say your power goes out. How does the turbo charger help then with the non-removable battery? The removable battery just gives you more options. If the battery dies, your phone needs to be replaced.

    not saying it is the fix for a non removable battery. just saying its something that will help. i know i would welcome turbo charging on my phone.

    Help what ? You still can't carry 2 or replace should it die and it will with turbo charging

    help with keeping your phone charged? no you still can change the battery, but the fact that you can charge it fast that other batters is a helpful feature. id say 50% of the time when i swapped batteries in other phones, i do so only because it would be quicker to put a fully charged battery in then charge the dying one in the phone, but that changes with turbo charging.

    Yes you are crazy. I ditched the Nexus five for my note 4 and I will never look back to a Nexus device again. The frequent updates from Google and stock android are extremely overrated in my opinion . Stock android is extremely boring and lacking in functionality
    I agree.. I was a Nexus fanatic for a few years and bought them as soon as they were released. I grew tired of the plain launcher and limited functionality.

    The only real bonuses are fast updates and no bloat.

    After using the Note 4 I don't think I can live without its multi tasking abilities. Sure the Note 4 has some bloat and yes the Nexus will get updates months before the Note but I am no longer willing to give up features for those perks..

    If you don't need the multi window, fingerprint scanner (which is a joy to use with Lastpass), SPen, microSD, and removable battery, and you hate TW, try out the Nexus. All of those things (except TW) are important to me, so I'll be using a Note of some type until something better comes along, or Google adds those features to stock android.

    IrishFXDB--BEST RESPONSE EVER!!!!!!! I mean I NEVER EVER bother respond to these threads, I just troll. But I've formulated your EXACT argument a million times in my own head..my favorite quote out there is, "no SD card, no swappable battery, no sale"..LOL that so cracks me up. Just give me a piece a crap phone as long as I can put my own SD card in it. As battery lives get longer the swappable battery thing is silly. Unless you are world traveler and take flights that last for 12 hours WHO CARES?? And even if you are, there are a bazzillion charge packs out there that will serve that purpose if necessary. In that regard the Nexus 6, which I own now, charges up to 75% in 15 minutes from being down below 15%. It isn't a gimmick it actually works. The screen is something to behold. And yes the Note 4 has more ppi but that is because the screen dimensions are SMALLER, the specs under the hood are identical. I just came from the Note 3. I had no complaints accept for Samsung's crapware. But even then, disabled, ignored, voila--it's all good. NEVER EVER used the pen. I took it out of the holster ONCE.a
    So here is the deal...if you want a phone to be a work productivity tool (which I do all the time SAID NO ONE EVER), then Note 4 is your thing. If you want it for browsing, texting, listening to your tunes,youtube--oh and making phone calls, then drop the Samsung unnecessary bloat and get the N6.

    1. Some do care about a spare battery -- it is more useful than plugging into a pack as you say...
    2. Actually a lot of people say they want more productivity out of the phone .. and that is why Samsung has made those features with the pen. Just because you don't use em .. doesn't mean others feel the same way .
    3. Some may want Samsung versus the N6 with all the reported problems .. Or they simply like Samsung. Who knows?

    Wanted to see people's thoughts.

    Had my Note 4. For 9 days now. Love it but it's not wowing me like I thought. I did come from a Note 3 however.

    Touchwiz is much better than note 3. But I'm with AT&T, and their bloatware, with Touchwiz is ridiculous

    I'm reading alot of good things with the Nexus 6, including huge QHD screen, pure Android experience and Lollipop

    Downsides to Nexus 6 is no SD slot and cannot exchange the battery.

    I'm torn. Not sure if I should try the nexus 6 or not. I hate losing the SD card because I have a ton of music and pics on my 128 gb microSD card

    What are your thoughts. Anyone else curious about the nexus 6 or even considering pre-ordering it?
