    Moto X Style - Perhaps if it were out already and I knew what I was getting. But I was ready to upgrade and I already knew what I wanted.
    Being a former Motorola user, I have been watching that too I wish Motorola would do something before I have to make my switch next week!!!

    I thought Sept 3 the moto x pure was going to be released?

    I might still get one, I kinda like the hardware and I like stock Android, even tho the truth is I don't really have an issue with TouchWiz I use much of its features .

    Actually I am thinking about returning mine.

    While this is a fantastic phone, I am still worried about dropping it and breaking the glass back on it, and knowing that if it gets wet it's most likely toast.

    I've been weighing all the pros and cons for keeping it and I am just not sure that it is truly worth the extra gray hair I am getting keeping it.

    I use a case and almost every phone is toast if it gets wet.

    I turned on power saving mode on my Note 5,and in a little over 4 hours my phone dropped only 3%, plus I can live with the settings, I think I found the solution to my problem, and I will be keeping this phone

    I don't use Facebook, or message people ,I don't use any social media except you tube sometimes, I use my phone to research, read and write and a few apps,so this setting should be cool.

    If you don't plan on using cases with your phones, then to do want one with better hardware. Check out the sticky on cases, some are getting thinner or other types that don't take away the looks of this phone.

    There's also this discussion about those who are not going to use a case. http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho...d.php?t=572513

    I had the S5 and even though it was water resistant, I never got it close to wet. So that's Non-issue with me.

    I did look at the nexus 6 and I liked my Note 4 over it,even though it's a great device I really like the screen on the Note series. Plus you're right it feels really wide.

    Never thought of returning, the device has been the best Android I've owned. I have an external quick charger if necessary but hasn't been. The quick charging is great.

    Best Samsung Galaxy phone to date that I've owned.

    Thanks...

    If I keep it I'll just have to get over the worrying. The thin cases are OK, but most likely will get a Sedio for it. I have had great luck with them on my phones for protection and ease of carrying.

    Someone also posted that they were going to get square trade insurance since they didn't want to get a case,so if it broke they could get it replaced

    Square Trade is good and cheap to get. The only thing Square Trade won't cover is theft or losing the device.

    To answer the original question. I have thought about it and sadly will return it on Tuesday, my 14th day is up then. I have given it a fair shot, with a daily comparison with my Note 4. For me, it is just not enough juice for the wknd and when I am traveling or out in the field. It lasts longer than my Note 4, but not by much. I can at least swap my battery with the Note 4. It's not an issue on weekdays generally since most times I am in my office.

    Many folks love their Note 5, me too. Just the battery and other reasons not for me.

    I hear you, for me weekdays are when my battery gets tested I ride my bike to work and when I ride home sometimes the battery is already in the orange but it has made it home without dying and I do use my phone a lot, so with an hour of cycling and 8 hours at work ,I guess 9 hours of me using it is pretty good,I will most likely upgrades to the note 6 when that is released if I like it,so by then I will sell this phone.

    I think Square Trade is about $99 a year.. Pretty cheap. The way my niece breaks iPhone screens, seems the deductible isn't much either.

    Hey there are a lot of great devices out there. The Note 4 is probably the better option if you absolutely need that spare battery.
