    I actually considered both but going from a Note 4 to a Note 5 i did not notice too much of a difference and i was actually sick and tired of my Note 4 battery life after the update.

    also mad at samsung not giving the Note 4 the new touchwhiz interface

    went with the Edge Plus

    I didn't look at the Edge at all. I simply don't like the 'Edge' look. And I wouldnt use the notifications that it offers. So, Note 5 it is...

    I could really use the "silent type" color notifications. If only the edge screen operated independent of the lock screen and you didn't have to turn the phone upside down.

    Didn't like the edge display. Having a partially wrapped app experience hurt my eyes, also preferred the rounded back for grip on the note.

    Just that the edge for me is on the wrong side, and the S-Pen makes all the difference to me, like I said, a preference thing.

    How is the edge on the wrong side? It's a dual edge screen and you can put the tab to activate it anywhere on either edge?

    I am looking at both, I had the Note 2 and 3, skipped the Note 4 since I just never used the Stylus enough, oh wait the new Samsung Pencil but the S6 Edge6 overcomes some of the screen size issues I had so I am looking at both. But in the end I may go Nexus or Moto simply for the software update issues.

    Not what I meant. I said it's a preference thing, meaning that I like my edge to be facing forward for comfort (note 5) rather than facing backwards for novelty (6+)

    Okay, after weeks of poking around, and half an hour poking on it in the store, I'm going with edge+.

    -- I loved my Note 3, but never ever ever used the S Pen. EVER. And yet I loved my Note. Why? All the reasons besides the S Pen. Big, beautiful, fast, juicy Android goodness, etc etc etc.

    -- I am likewise not planning to use the edge features. Kinda interesting in theory, but nothing that jumps out as must-have. But it's big, beautiful, chock full of juicy Android goodness, and I like the SHAPE of the edge.

    You know what REALLY did it? Having the Note for 2 years already, getting the Note 5 felt like buying an OLD phone, not a new one. Yes, yes, faster, higher res, more useful pen. I'm a believer. I really truly am.

    But I'm also 100000% shallow. Every one of my last phones has brought a change in form factor, and being entirely that shallow, that's what won the day.

    I can't thank you all enough though. Even though I went the other way, I agree with you all on almost everything. LOL Your wisdom is why I've been lurking in this forum for so so many years, and I truly appreciate it.

    I got the Edge 6+. Then I went back three days later and returned it for the Note 5. MUCH happier with the Note... had the 2, 3 and 4... never used the dumb pen so figured the Edge would simply make more sense... been using the S-Pen all day today.
