    I agree...I'm a huge nexus fan. ..had the nexus 4 and 5 prior to just getting my Note 5...

    Screen looks great and looks fast.. the ad 810 is what turned me off but looks fast.

    In the end..really love the Note 5...4 gig ram..awesome screen, s pen...awesome ND really don't mind touchwiz....awesome need I hate TouchWiz on my tablet

    Agreed. If I were in the market for a new phone the Nexus 6p is the one I would choose. The larger battery is a big plus. All I need is a good camera and not necessarily the best.

    Funny you ask that cuz I thought about asking what you guys thought about it! I've never given Nexus a second look...until today. I don't know anything about them, but that big one looks good. I read the AC article about it. Sounds good too. Hmmm...

    Why did this have to happen??? I love my Note 5. The screen, speed, camera, I can go on and on but the Nexus line has always had a special place with me due to it's timely updates, pure stock android experience with no bloat and exceptional price points. There is no way I can justify this purchase but I would be lying to you if I said the new Nexus 6P is not tempting my addiction.

    I placed an order. It will be a tough sell to get me to give up my note but I want to test them both out and see which I prefer.

    I think its hard to compare the two, they are two different animals.

    Its like how i switch back and forth between the droid line and the note line. (Yes i know droids have verizon bloat) while the pure android phones are great for someone wanting a pure android experience, the note line isnt even supposed to be that. The note line is for someone who wants an spen and features built into the phone.

    Dont get me wrong, the new phone looks like a great phone, but comparing the phones is hard to do.

    You can however choose what type of experience you want w your phone, and that is a personal choice.

    Nah. The Nexus 6P doesn't have wireless charging or Samsung Pay. Not only that, it has that hideous black bar on the back of the phone.

    No thanks.

    I have a nexus 7 2012 tablet and its awesome. Has the 5.1.1 latest and they said today it will receive android m. I do love stock android. The camera is the nexus best camera they have ever had on a phone. Thats something the note 5 had better then any premium phone thats out now. I do like having the lastest android version. Just don't know how i would feel with a Nexus phone.

    I'm always amazed people pre-order new phones. Until consumer models are plentiful we may know stats but how is the radio? Real life battery time? Does it run hot? Restarts? There are a million possible issues we couldn't possibly anticipate. Just look at the s6 edge. Sounded spectacular but overheating fast charging and accelerometer burn out soon cooled my enthusiasm. I know nothing about Huawei. How is their customer service? Quality control etc?

    I don't care about looks and the specs sound fantastic. I can't wait to read customer comments. I don't trust website reviews. They don't use the phone long enough to find the flaws.

    The Note line is the only line I trust to preorder because I have a few years under my belt. Also, I know if on the rare chance it doesn't meet my expectations I can exchange it for a small fee. I'd never preorder any other device/brand for the reasons you stated.

    But that Nexus still looks and sounds good. I'm interested in seeing the hands on videos. I feel like a cheat for taking a second look at another device.

    It's definitely intriguing. If I didn't have the note 5 already I would give it a hard look. Always having the newest version of Android would be nice, but I think I would miss the spen too much.

    So I am trying to decide between the 6P and the Note 5 on AT&T. The thing I like about the Note is the spen and the 4 gb of ram. I think the form factor is smaller. I like the 6P due to the 128gb capacity and having the latest updates. Will the Note 5 on AT&T get Marshmallow anytime this year? How much storage is available on the Note 5 out of the box? Can I remove all the bloatware without rooting to gain space? Would it be smarter to pay the extra $ to get an international version? I think answers to these will help make up my mind.

    I agreed that Nexus 6P looks good. There are many nice and look good phone out there. My only reason I picked Note 5 is mainly the SPen functionality. Unfortunately, there is only Note 5 in the market, not that I don't like/love my Note 5. Note 5 is a beautiful and a amzingly fast phone. I believe the camera on Note 5 is one the best.

    Looks like a nice phone but the features that make a note a note will keep me with the note 5. I think the nexus 6p will be on par with the note 5 but won't exceed it.

    I agree to an point, website reviews can be biased or skewed (especially iPhone reviews) but the one thing I always consider, the forums are for us tinkerers and people who just love learning more then the average person about tech. Most people will post about issues, rarely will they post about positives unless in a debate about which phones are best. Also, in the forums it's maybe 1000 ppl you see chatting regularly, that's not gonna be the consensus of the millions of customers who brought the phone.

    I've read the note 5 should get marshmallow before the year is up. But of course you never know with these carriers.

    As much as this device is loved by many, I'm not sold on the location of the finger swipe. I don't personally naturally hold, or pick up my device in a way that would 'force' my index finger to cover said button for 'activation'.

    That would annoy me. I'm a two handed phone user guy. Further more, I like my Note 5

    Don't you think it would be wise to wait for some real world reviews of the 6P before getting all giddy? A bunch of devices that have looked good on paper have had issues (EG: overheating, throttling, camera effectiveness, wireless issues, actual battery life) that weren't realized until they were reviewed and in people's hands. No one does AMOLED like Samsung so just because the 6P has that type of display doesn't mean it's of the same caliber as what's on the Note. Reviews and comparisons will be out soon and that'll shed some light on how good or bad the 6P is at different things.

    Not everyone here is enamored with "pure Google;" especially on a 5.7" phone. I for one actually use things like S Note, Action Memo, S Pen, Scrapbook, SideSync, Samsung Link, and multiview and buy Note's because of it. I don't know how many like me there are here but I have no interest in a "vanilla" phone that I have to cobble together my own productivity features on. For people that don't use the Note's specialty features the 6P will probably be fine and a better value. Providing you don't care about OIS for the camera and wireless charging which are the two biggest missing features. All my wireless devices and their dozen cables are micro USB so throwing in a Micro C oddball isn't a feature it's a challenge. So I personally view that as a negative.

    The new Nexi are great values. Let's see what kind of phones they are.

    I could go for a Nexus despite loving many Note features but it would have to beat the Note 5 significantly in other areas. Battery life, screen, wireless charging (already a fail), HDMI out etc.
    The Nexus 6 was just too big. The 6p only a little bigger than note but I haven't seen anything yet that knocks me over. Time will tell.
