    I'm already thinking about trading my note 4 for the note 5 when it comes out but depending how much Samsung will change it from the note 4. All metal or aluminum would be nice. Who else would trade?

    Will consider upgrading but I'm not a fan of the direction Samsung are heading with no non replaceable battery, no expandable storage and on top of that very expensive handsets going on the S6 and S6 edge prices (more expensive than the iPhone 6)

    If they continue in this direction with the Note 5 I'm moving to the nexus range, as Samsungs delays on updating to the latest Android version are really being to frustrate me.

    I'll have to see what they change. If the battery and removable storage go, so does this Samsung customer. That's always been why I like their phones. They are getting money hungry and want to charge for extra gb

    If I like the phone they present to me then yes I will change. Although I would hate to lose the expandable storage option, it's not a deal breaker for me.

    I just picked my Note 4 up 2 weeks ago but I absolutely plan to go to the Note 5 when it comes out. Removable battery isn't a big deal to me but I would like to have the SD card storage option. Metal chassis isn't a huge thing to me. I was deciding on the Nexus 6 or Note 4 and ultimately went with the Note 4. I like the quickness of updates with the Nexus like bit couldn't justify the size with no real benefits. Might as well get a Moto X. At least with the Note you get the S PEN and several other options to take advantage of the screen size.

    I plan on it. I have the T-mobile Jump program so I can upgrade every year. I may as well get the next Note.

    I had the note 3 and I thought it was terrible. Phone reception was awful and it was slow and glitchy feeling. I took it back and got another one and it was the same way so I stayed with my s4s which I thought was a better phone. When this note 4 came out I got one because the s4s died. I have to way this is a great phone. I love it. It is quick and not clunky feeling and the call reception is better than my s4s. I am very pleased. I will definitely be getting the note 5. Since I'm on the att next I can get a new one every year.

    I am going to get the Note 5, just on the reputation that the Note 3 and Note 4 has built with my experience with these phones. I sold my prime like new Note 3, to get the Note 4.

    I have turned into a Note Phone Fanboy..I carry my Note 4, like I did my Note 3 in two cases. A tough armour case, and then a wallet like pouch, along with tempered glass, my Notes stayed new like through out.

    Now , if they do away with the sd card and removable battery, I might rethink on the Note 5.

    Other than that, I am at the front of the line for the Note 5..

    I still think the Note 3 is a solid choice amongst all phones today. It's really that good. I use one as my daily driver for work and is oustanding.

    The note 4 I've had for 2 weeks and love it as well. Unless the note 5 brings a must have feature to the table then I won't upgrade.

    That's why I like these new upgrade plans the carriers offer bow. I don't even have to worry about will I upgrade. I have the expectation that I will every year.

    I use a 128gb micro sd... if Samsung makes a note 5 that doesn't cost much more and has similar capacity, I'll upgrade. If not, they will likely lose me as a customer. The sealed battery issue isn't a deal breaker for me.

    The one thing that had always set Android ahead of Apple, at least for me and many others, was the flexibility of being able to switch batteries and use a micro SD card for removable storage. I've never been a big fan of metal-bodied phones, especially with the development of polycarbonates, etc. I like to change phones every year, so I definitely would like to trade my N4 for an N5. However, if Sammy chooses to go all metal and lose the flexibility of removable battery and micro SD card, I'll be looking to go with something else. Either that or keep my N4 for at least another year. It'll still be a great device, especially since it'll be good for another OS upgrade or two.

    I still have my 17 months old Note 3. Note 4 is a phenomenal phone, but it wasn't enough an upgrade for me to shell out $500 (after trading in Note 3).

    Frankly, at this point, I don't see anything down the road that will be a worthy upgrade for me in the short term (few years from now).

    Higher PPI? nice but makes little difference.
    Faster hardware? sure, although my note 3 is plenty fast.
    64bit? over-hyped thing that means next to nothing to me.
    a 0.2' larger screen? well, barely noticeable.

    I am looking for real ground-breaking innovations in my next handset, and I am afraid I don't see anything coming at that level. Not to mention, if sammy makes note series's battery non-removable and eliminate sd card, it will likely be end of the line for me.

    I will keep waiting, if my note 3 breaks before the wait ends, I may pick up an note 4 and continue the wait.

    Clevin, you wrote my post. Note 3 on AT&T (about the only thing I could see trading for would be a TMobile Note 3, so the bootloader wasn't locked) and I don't see anything coming down the pike (not even LolliFlop) that makes me want to change. Oh, there are a few nice things about the 4 - you can include a video (or photo) in an S-Note, things like that. But for a few hundred dollars? I'll wait for the app. (It's not only the price of the phone, it's the Otterbox, the spare battery, etc., etc. It better make the coffee for that kind of money.)

    IME, with the 4, you can use GPS reliably too...unlike with my 3.

    I just got my note 4 a month ago I also leasing it so I can't upgrade till the note 6 comes out. If I could upgrade I wouldn't. I rather wait for the note 6. Yearly upgrades aren't enough for me to change. Two year upgrades are more substantial and different. So no I'll keep my note 4 for a while.
