    Maybe I've lost my mind but everything looks larger on the Galaxy S6 compared to the Note 5 display.
    Note 5 has a much larger display then the S6, why does everything look bigger on the S6?

    Maybe the font sizes within the settings were set larger on the S6?

    No, both devices have the same factory settings.

    OK, now I'm confused. All I know is that everything is smaller (including the memory) on the Note 5 then the S6.
    My old eyes are shot, might need new glasses with the new smaller print Note 5.

    I really like the smaller font, you can see more of a Web page without having to scroll. Makes the screen seem even bigger then it is.

    Is your screen grid on the Note 5 set to 5X5? If so... That might be why you see everything smaller on the Note 5. You can changes it to 4X4 if you wish. Push and hold the back button from your home screen to access that option.

    If am not wrong, Note 5 display has more pixels than GS6 and hence you get more space and smaller fonts.

    The DPI is set lower for higher information density. From the XDA review.

    "But something that I believe every Note lover will like is the fact that the stock DPI is no longer 640 (the equivalent of 480 at 1080p), but rather 560. This means that the Note has much better information density by default."

    Same resolution and pixels, lower ppi, higher dpi.

    Already tried that and the icons/text stays the same small size.
