    If you are a Verizon or Sprint customer you won't have data and talk simultaneously in 3G areas. If you care about ir blaster it is only in Note 4. Otherwise Note 5 is far superior. I prefer the 4 because I am a vzw customer and I do care about ir blaster. Most people don't. If you can wait until end of summer wait for Note 6.

    This is not true. I'm currently at the baseball field watching my kid practice, talking to my mother, and reading these posts. I'm on Verizon with a Note 5.

    Since it's not terribly long until the Note 6 I wouldn't go with the N4 now. Either 5 or wait for the 6.

    I own and use both the Note 4 and the Note 5. The Note 5 is immensely superior in that it has Samsung Pay, a superior screen, superior fingerprint scanner and superior camera to name a few.. I am on Verizon and all Verizon phones are unlocked out of the box. I have also been an AT&T customer for a couple of years before returning to Verizon. If you want phone coverage outside of large cities and major freeway corridors Verizon is the carrier to have.

    Not true. It's funny that i get better service with At&t then i do with Verizon. And i don't live in a huge city either.

    True. But I must say, I had a g4 on Verizon and now I have a note 5 on AT&T so that might be why also.

    While I believe the Note 4 is still an excellent phone, I would have to recommend the Note 5 at this point. Actually if you are buying new then I would wait for the 6. If you are buying used then go for it. You can get a deal on a Note 5 right now.

    You should look at the pros and cons of having either device. If you're a power user, the Note 4 is far more friendly but if you want a device that looks good and you don't mind a smaller battery and non-expandable storage, Note 5 is the way to go. It has 1GB more of RAM and it's quick.

    I just bought the Note 5 turned it on and found out it was locked the person that had it before me was on T-Mobile and didn't pay their bill so now I'm stuck with a phone that's locked is there any way to get it unlocked without me paying their bill? I guess that's what I get for trying to save a little money. Again thanks for all your help

    That sucks, I would return it to that person if you bought it on eBay or Amazon you can defiantly get your money back asap and Swappa as well if they sold as unlocked and it isn't and look like a bad IMEI since the phone is shut down due to non payment. Hope you get your money back. I tend to buy unlocked phones from ExpansysUSA and B&H Photo both are very good and supply warranties oppertunitys. Also the N920 G, I, and C works very well with ATT have had no issues I have the C and I model of the note 5 all bands work. I use android pay so not sure about samsung pay I guess I can look for it and let you know.
