    For me the stylus is a non issue at this time. I've never had one before. I just liked the power and specs of the note series

    I didn't know the LG4 Pro was coming with a stylus. Is it a Wacom stylus like the Notes and Surface Pros use?

    Hopefully it will take off for them and when the time comes again, I'll have another option out there to choose from.

    It's probably a rumor, my bad. I read it on one of these Note 5 forums . I checked the specs, and nothing is being shown for a stylus.

    I played with the LG G4 next to my Note 4 side-by-side for a week. Could not stand how awful the G4's screen looked.

    Will the LG G Pro have a decent screen?

    Thanks!

    Surface tablets use N-Trig for the stylus sensors. They own the company. Samsung owns Wacom.

    When my Note 3 expires (in maybe 2 years or more?), I would consider a Note 4 or whatever latest phone with large screen, removable battery and sd card.

    That is IF all new phones don't go the non-removable of SD and battery route....

    All future Samsung phones(Note 6/7/8/9/10... and Galaxy S7/S8/S9/S10...) will NOT have SD card slots or removable batteries.

    The party is over.

    I'm coming from moto x '13 so anything right now is an upgrade. That being said, I will either get the note 5 or s6 active. Removable battery ad expandable storage don't matter much to me.

    My grandparents had the same rotary phone in their house for 50 yrs. I think I can hold onto my note 4 for longer than two.

    I'd guess Samsung won't go back. Can they? Sure but doubtful. They took it away on the S6 and followed on the Note.

    I think the real solution to the sd card and removable battery saga is too just include a much beefier 4000 battery with a cheaper price point for 128gb internal storage.

    Anyway, sticking with my S6 for now, can't wait for the new nexii to be released.

    You got it backwards.... the reason they took away the SD card slot is so that you HAVE to pay more if you want more storage. Most Note users will not buy the base 32GB model. So their only choice is to shell out another $100 for the 64gb model. Instant profit for Samsung.

    Those are what I'm thinking too,, either Moto X ,or Nexus . I prefer the LG model of Nexus though
    Same, Nexus 5 was my favorite phone ever on Android.

    Looking forward to the final spec sheet and build quality.

    I had a Note 3 then the Note 4 and was waiting for the Note 5, but after it was officially announced I decided to go with the G4 instead. So far so good. I don't think I'll go back to Samsung way too much media for no sd card. While the Note 4's screen was better it wasn't that big of a difference.

    I just read that the S6 Edge + just barely beat out the N5 in battery life and charges a bit quicker too. I owned Note 3 and now Note 4 before. I liked the Note series for the swappable battery which I used every day and the long life in general and performance not for the s-pen. Based on this news shouldn't I just get the S6 Edge +? I don't need the s pen and that seems to be the only real difference now that battery/sd card are non removable.

    The Note is supposed to be a 'a productivity device targeted at business users.' but I don't even know what that means... The S6E+ has smaller footprint/lighter/thinner with same size screen better battery and same internals/cam. What am I missing? Its if you want an spen get a note and if not get the s6e+? Is that it? What's the real difference? Curved glass on the s6e+ and stylus in the n5?

    Samsung doesn't own Wacom. Last I read, they invested in 5% of the company in 2013. While it's a lot of money, they didn't buy much of the company and they still have a long way to before they have controlling interest or even significant influence...

    There was a rumor back in July 2014 that Apple(yes, the maker of iPhones) was considering buying Wacom. Guess that never materialized. I guess if they did, they would have to make iPhone Note phones!

    I know this is a matter of personal preference, but how exactly is the screen of the G4 awful?

    I put my G4 next to the S6 and S6e and I think both are roughly identical in terms of color reproduction and vibrancy. I personally prefer the G4's screen because I find the color temperature on the S6 to be a wee-bit too warm for me but I do like how the S6 reproduces black colors in a stunning way as it's an AMOLED screen, meaning that pixels are actually shut off to reproduce extremely deep blacks.

    A shame that Samsung seems to no longer be interested in their OLED TVs, while LG has been making more of them.
