    The one device I regret getting rid of is the original iPhone. Something about that one. Also have a soft spot for my Nokia 6682.

    I keep all mine. Got an old iphone, razr maxx hd, thunderbolt, and a couple of ipads. All are hooked up to wifi andare used regularly, mostly as clock and weather devices.

    Oh, almost forgot about my og droid in the bathroom downstairs.
    I'm the same way, while I do sell a fair share of old devices I do keep my faves. For instance my galaxy s3 and my galaxy note 10.1 tablet are used as nanny cams. I also use the note 10.1 as my remote in the livingroom and audio /video Chromecast casting device. I have a little zte whirl that I use for my throwback one-handed text messaging when I don't feel like holding my note 5 or when its charging. Finally I have a Lenovo tab 2 a8 that I use for reading my books, mags and news.

    Can you connect remotely to those devices acting as nanny cams?

    I have always had all Apple devices. iPhone, iPad, iMac, iPods....

    Every once in a while I would get tempted to try an Android phone, only to go back to my iPhone within a couple weeks, until I got the Note 5. I love pretty much everything about the phone, except the battery. I use Evernote for work, and the Android app trumps the iPhone variety. Having the ability to pin notes and notebooks to the home screen is the clincher for me. What takes 8 presses on the iPhone, takes one touch on the Note 5. This has been so handy for me, that I got a Samsung 10" tab with sPen for Christmas

    Now my family thinks I've lost it. I got them all hooked on Apple stuff, and now I am sporting all Android gear!.

    I haven't had the edge, but the Note 5 is a great phone. If I didn't use the sPen so much, I might lean towards the S6 edge, but now that Ive gotten used to the pen I don't know if I could use anything else...

    My New Year's resolution is no more devices for 2016!

    I made that decision because I'm so happy with the Note 5!

    Every once in a while, I'll go back to the iPhone 6 and it reminds me how badass the Note 5 really is.

    The Edge is gorgeous. For looks stick with it. Note 5 is the same phone with a stylus added. Do you need S Pen functions?

    Cool. You feel this app is secure and the designer trustworthy? Wouldn't want anybody else to be able to remotely access my phones.

    I had the s6 edge prior to getting the note 5. I can say in my experience, the note 5 is a significant jump from the s6 edge. It's faster, smoother, and has more features that I use regularly. I don't regret the upgrade at all.

    Ive corresponded with the designer and they seem legit, the app is still in beta so more features will be rolling out i guess. I turn the cameras off unless I want to do a quick check in.

    It sounds great for guys like us with multiple devices but video is not encrypted so I am a little nervous of it at this time. I will keep an eye on reviews so I do appreciate you telling me about it. I'm just horrified about people in another country being able access my devices....maybe. i would love to be able to keep an eye on my home when away. I do use one Dlink remote camera but that is pointed outdoors so I don't care who sees the feed. Indoors is another matter.

    I understand completely, so far I haven't noticed anything shady and I plan to add devices to point outside as well.

    I actually went to a Moto X pure and let my note 5 sit for now. I'm hoping 6.0.1 fixed my concerns and asked me to order the device daily again

    I'm very happy with the note 5, having tried a Nexus 6p for 9 days and returning it.
    However if the rumours of a 6 inch S7 are true, I could be jumping ship 👌

    Depending on what the s7 is like I may try that but I like my note 5 a lot. Sending the 6p I was trying back.

    I tried the 6p. It was a good phone. But my microphone failed. I had to send it back. I am using my Note 5 again and feel most comfortable. I hear people complain about removable battery's and lack of a SD card but I don't need them. The note 5 is a excellent device on so many levels.

    I am content with my Note 5, however I wish the device was a little smaller. I have small hands, but the one-handed operation helps some. I LOVE the screen real estate, plus I use the s-Pen all the time. Might be having some battery drain, but it may be the apps I keep open in the recent apps page, plus my SIM status is in the triple digits. YES that's bad, but I only get 2-3 bars where I live. I'm still a closet BlackBerry fan, and will see what they come up with for this year. If they or ANY other company would come up with a business stylus pen to come included with the device then I'd have my pick of the litter. IF BB make a full-touch Android powered BlackBerry with S-pen yeah I'd go that way. But, having a S-pen to carry around in the device itself and have it on hand 24/7 is pretty stellar.
