    Thinking about changing so just wondering what made you choose the note?

    They're essentially the same phone. It all comes down to whether you prefer the curved screen or the S Pen.

    It's essentially the same phone, but the Note5 has the S Pen and it is like $200-$300 cheaper. The S6 edge didn't make sense to me. It wasn't very functional, so the S6 edge+ makes even less sense. If the S6 edge+ was the upgraded version of the Note Edge from last year, I probably would have purchased it.

    The S Pen has way more functionality to it then the edge. To me the whole edge thing is just too gimmicky!

    The Note 5 has the curved glass on the correct side.

    Because it is a Note. Even without the SD card and removable battery. If you don't have a need for the spen get the edge.

    My original S6E all had issues with the images being distorted on the edges or discoloration along the edges. Went with the Note 5.

    I had the S6 edge and the only thing that I liked was the edge contacts. The edge night clock stopped working and I did not use the other edge apps. I had no reason to upgrade to the edge plus. I like using the s-pen especially taking notes when the display is off.

    The edge screen doesn't mean that much to me, but that's just me.

    If i am going to have a 5.7 inch screen i might as well have the Spen, and samsung right now does that best.

    If i was to buy the edge plus, i hate that i didn't get an Spen, not having the edged screen doesn't bother me.

    Even if the edge plus had the Spen, i would have got the regular note5, again, because the edged screen just isn't for me.

    (Now that I've said that next years note will be a combination note with double edge screen lol)

    sent with my white Note5 with nonremovable back and no SDCard!

    I had the s6e and while it looked cool, it didn't have any added functionality. Add to it that sometimes things right at the edge is hard to select.

    Better ergonomics and think the pen adds more value and use than the edge screen.

    Lack of pen. I don't care about the SD card or the removable battery. Price had nothing to do with it either. I want the S Pen so I chose the Note 5

    S pen is more valuable to me. The edge doesn't offer much, if it is like the s6 edge it's pretty much useless. The notifications on the edge are limited to your five favorites and have to use stock. Samsung should have given the edge same usability as they did on the note edge.

    I wanted the spen and I wasn't crazy about having to have notifications on lock screen and the phone having to be upside down to work.

    The S pen is the biggest factor for me. I have to sign documents on the go all the time, and it just makes it easier on the road.

    Yes, I want the S pen. That was my decision factor. The edge was just gimmick to me and i don't see any usefulness of the edge screen.

    Note 5 over the Edge came down to the Pen. The two phones are the same, except for the pen or curved class. The "cool" features the edge has are all software based and can be replicated with apps that will soon be created by fans. The pen features, not so much.

    S pen, and the fact the note 5 felt better in my hands. Last year i told myself if the note 5 comes out in edge version with both sides curved, I would buy it. Alas that didn't happen

    I had the s6 edge plus for all of about 4 days (got my pre-order early) to figure out that the Note 5 was better.. Yes the sexy'ness of the curve is cool, but function wise it was eh. If you put any notification apps( messages, facebook, email) on the side apps page then the only reminder of a notification is in the status bar. Also I feel like the note 5 is easier to hold in hand without a case.. I feel S-pen is better than side apps edge..

    NOW if the s6 edge plus came with a S-pen then yes I would've stayed with it lol

    I went from a Note 4 to S6 edge. I used s-note a lot. This is the main reason why I chose the note 5. It has the speed, camera, fingerprint scanner of the S6E in addition to the S-pen. I also like the calendar on the S6E versus the Note 4.

    S-Pen, that I'm using to write this post with. my phone spends a lot of time in my gym shorts pocket when I'm lifting so not being able to protect the glass edges was a deal breaker. did I mention the s-Pen ?

It wasn't very functional, so the S6 edge+ makes even less sense. If the S6 edge+ was the upgraded version of the Note Edge from last year, I probably would have purchased it.
    I'd be interested in knowing when they decided on their 2015 portfolio of phones. Given there is no good explanation for the S6 Edge Plus...you'd think it was a knee jerk reaction by Samsung given the higher than expected demand of the S6 Edge. However, going from design to production to exporting for sale seems like it would take a longer time than when Samsung got the S6 Edge sales results back.

    I agree with your last statement....they should have refined the prior Note Edge, but being consistent with Samsung's priority of looks over utility.....it seems they ditched the more functional single sided & larger curved edge screen for a less functional but more aesthetic double sided & narrow curved edge screen.

    Quite frankly....Samsung is all over the place in their mobile department and I haven't been able to make sense of their highly diversified & fragmented strategy.
