    Note 5. I use both. (i work at apple) Note 5 is better unless you just prefer iOS to Android.
    Neither are a bad choice. ip6s+ is a great phone, I prefer the note 5 for my daily driver simply because I like the freedom and a back button.

    Not so sure about that.. In fact people that have owned both are reporting differently.

    This is my battery of my Note 5 from yesterday.

    I can see your stats and that is really impressive. I have nothing against android devices. However what the iphone 6 plus achieves overall is much better. SOT changes all the time. It is more important how you achieve those hours. Iphone 6 plus has better endurance which is overall better. Involves gaming, calls, mesaaging, internet browsing, youtube and apps. Having all this happening and achieving good SOT is better than getting 10 hours of SOT doing simple tasks.

    Show your full stat details. I want data to back your claim. Everyone achieves different SOT because of different use patterns and needs

    I've had the Note 5 before. Definitely the battery on my 6S Plus is better. I'm up early around 5am. If my battery is 100% I get all the way to 10pm before it's almost dead. The Note 5 I'd be lucky to get to 5pm. Same daily routines. Granted the Note has more going on in the background for sure. I averaged about 5.5-6 hrs SOT with the Note 5.

    I charge before bed, it idles overnight. I charge once a day and I don't run my battery down past 30%. We don't have landlines in our house, we only have our phones, there is no airplane mode, turning data off, etc. I also tether my computer, a lot, to stream.

    My phone also constantly outcasts my sister's. A moderator posted his experience with the iPhone vs his Note 5, I believe he linked it.

    "Dude, those are all great phones. I have a Note 5 and absolutely love it. I know others who love their iPhone 6 and 6+. You just gotta try em out and see which one you like best."

    ..............Thanks! I am going to go to Best buy and hold both and see. The N5 from what I can tell isnt a huge upgrade over the N4...from what I can tell. THX!
    Actually it is quite an upgrade. It is a lot smoother with an extra Gig of RAM, the quick launch camera is amazing, the fingerprint scanner is as good as iphone now, ZERO lag whatsoever, themes to change icons and overall look, etc..... The list goes on. There is nothing even close to this device.

    Fingerprint scanner is great but not even close to the one found in the iphone 6 ( not to mention 6s )

    Sprint made a huge mistake by disabling the app optimization with the update the other day, TMO left it in their update. I'm interested in seeing what Verizon and AT&T do with that feature.

    AT&T used to always remove features in updates with phones and being back on TMO, I'm finding they aren't removing features that are released like AT&T and other companies do.

    The iPhone used to always have a better camera, not true with the Note 5 and like you said, the Note 5 is a much bigger upgrade. People talk about new features as the only way to judge upgrade or not, but that isn't true. Better display, better speed, better battery than the Note 4 and much more comfortable to use. I have to use my phone all day for work and after a day with the Note 4 my hands would ache.

    I didn't think the Note 5 would be much of an upgrade before I bought it, after getting settled in and using it, I discovered it was very much an upgrade.

    Blind Camera Shootout - the winner is... - Android Authority

    iPhone 6s is the winner blind camera test conducted by Android Authority. The voting was done by users. The Note 5 finished second, but it was close. They should have used the iPhone 6s PLUS as it has Optical Image Stabilization.

    You also might find this thread interesting, some iPhone owners and the Note 5. For a few, there seems to be a draw to Android they can't ignore, particularly with the Note 5.
