    Has anyone else here done the same? I love the S6, aside from the battery life. Admittedly, I'm not the typical smartphone user.

    I use social apps and make a lot of calls during the day. So I'm constantly charging my S6. Everything else is perfect though.

    I've owned every note since the note 2 and kind of miss the pen despite liking the S line more over all. I ordered the Note 5 for the S pen, battery life, and the slightly bigger screen. I wish the Note 5 was available in gold in the us like the S6.

    The design looks amazing. I tried it on the retailer store and find the stylus very responsive.

    S6 Edge user here. Just preordered a Verizon note 5 via best buy. I figured with a subsidy available on my account and there $200 trade offer I couldn't resist. Note line usually improves on S line, i guess they have time to tweak the software between launches.

    Had the S6 and sold it a while back because of battery life and touchwiz. Getting the Note 5 because of the bigger battery probably will carry me thru the day. Even though it still has touchwiz the hardware, design is too good to pass up. Played it at best buy and was pleasure to just hold and play with it. I would say go for it over S6.

    I had the S6 a few months ago but got rid of it for the S6 active because the S6's battery was really awful. I now have the Note 5 and I absolutely love it. I just got it a 1/2 hour ago and setting it up. I love it.

    I had the S6 edge...this is night and day IMO....battery life seems to be after 48 hours so much better!! I haven't had to even worry about charging it throughout the day and I am a pretty heavy user, email, internet, videos, texting, calls, you name it. The biggest things I noticed are when its in standby, it doesn't drain like my edge did. Also it doesn't get so hot its uncomfortable like the edge! I am very very I didn't listen to everyone say get the note 4 and switched to the note 5! First note since the note 2!

    That's great to hear! Battery life is literally the only thing I didn't like about my s6. I was constantly charging it. Mine just came, I'm so excited. It's doing it's first round of app updates before I install my apps.

    Is it the same processor as the s6? I heard it was, but man it feels faster? Maybe it's placebo because it's a new device. Well anyway I hope you guys get yours soon. I love mine so far. Can't wait to take it to comic con tomorrow. Maybe I'll try that new youtube feature. I was already planning to periscope the hell out of it.

    I don't mind it either. What problems are people still having with this skin? It's far less buggy than before.

    It's just adding bloat, I would prefer Motorola route of having stock Android and provide all the additional useful samsung add on thru services and apps. In that way people can use what they want and still keep the experience simple and easy to upgrade Samsung's own services and the Android OS.

    It's also nice looking now. It was hideous before. Wanted to rip my eyes out.

    Can't wait for your thoughts on the Note 5, especially for battery life

    I've got an unlocked S6 on the way, but man I'm about to sell it as soon as it gets in to order a Note 5. I've always been a stock guy, but honestly, what does stock Android get you right now? Quick updates? Check. No bloat? Check. But that's about it. Even the huge additions of M like the fingerprint scanner and Android Pay are basically on the Note 5 already. Plus you get an insane camera and a sick screen, which are two very important things for me. I think the Note 5 could be the phone that I actually stick with for awhile.

    I have the N4 and the S6E, I'm getting the N5 tomorrow. I've had all the Notes and several S phones.

    One thing you should do is find info online about what the spen will do. It will do so much and has for the last 2 Notes. You don't want to miss out on those features. Seems many buy every Note and never take the spen out and use it.

    I have to do my T-Mobile upgrade in the store, so I'm going to be there before 9:00. My regular TM didn't get any white 64 gb in or they would have put one aside for me. I found one store for sure that has some, but "very limited supply" they said.

    T-Mobile has plenty of black ones, I prefer white. I guess if I have to get a black one I will.

    I had an S6 Edge and got the Note 5. Was unsure which one to get, note 5 or edge +. The main reason was because I knew the Note would have a better battery life. Decided for the Note because I think the S Pen is a better feature than edge people. Loving it. Don't miss my edge at all. Putting it up for sale right now

    I have the N4 and S6E. I thought I would keep my N4.amd get the S6E+ but then I saw the spen improvements. I would like the edge better if it didn't have to be upside down to show the colors on the edge and my other notifications never woke my edge screen. I don't know of that is how it worked or the 5.1.1 update or the T-Mobile 5.1.1 update. I got it out if the box as 5.0.2 but upgraded in 5.minutes so I don't know how it worked before.

    I would really like a Note 5 Edge if the Edge works like I think it is supposed to, but the spen now was just too good for me to pass up.
