    Yeah that's why I'm looking at the Lifeproof stuff. Looks to be about the thinnest and least bulky of the high protection cases out there.

    Then, you definitely don't want Ballistic cases as they are as bulky as the Otterbox. Bulk, however, is relative.

    Just bought a Note 4 Black 32GB. My first note. From the camera pic comparison I've seen, it takes the best photos with more detail than the S6 and I can't imagine using such a small battery like the S6 has
    Great. Glad we were able to help you make your choice. The camera was your priority but I really believe that low light pictures and videos will be better with the GS6. I, on the other hand, am looking for more than a camera which has a phone attached to it. Let us know how it works out for you. You may find that you have buyers remorse if you spend more time in this forum.

    The Note 4 is wonky on Lollipop. I know folks who went back to KitKat because of it. If that is not of concern to you then by all means I would recommend the Note 4.

    I went to Samsung showroom, I tried both Note 4 and Note Edge, Note Edge is undoubtedly better for one handed use as you have phone,messages...shortcuts on the edge. The screen on both devices is sooooooo gorgeous! it put to shame my HTC M8.
    The thing is that I have astigmatism (slightly blurry near sighted) and Note 4 is looking like the better choice for screen size compared to S6, BUT I think it's heavy and bulky for sports
    yeah, both are top notch products, with obvious differences. It may be best to get paws on them and see which one works better for you.

    I am glad that the GS6 did retain is screen size which is perfect for me. I believe that any larger and it would just be a Note variant with a Galaxy badge harming both brands.

    Well I'm on Kitkat 4.4.4 that's the latest update my phone says. I won't jump on the lollipop bandwagon now due to the horror stores I read in the lollipop thread like bad connection (possibly a bad radio file) or huge lag. I'll maybe upgrade after the initial lollipop update when the issues are ironed out or might not upgrade altogether depending on the feedback.

    Are you talking about 5.1? Are you sure that it was an earlier version of Lollipop 5.01 or 5.02?

    the Note 4 is already outdated... it's been out for several months and the Note 5 will be here before the turkey time.

    the S6 is the current Samsung flagship.... but Note 5 will take over that position in less than 6 months. another 6 months later, the S7 will become the flagship again....
    It's a vicious cycle but the GN4 is still a great device. The GS4 is out of date.

    Nop!
    Note 4 is still the phablet flagship from Samsung, S6 is a phone flagship, it's 2 different leagues.
    Note 5 won't be out before 7 months (not 7 days) and will cost much higher than actual Note 4 price, btw one of the big advantage of Note 4 is the price vs S6 Edge 64gb which will be in the 1000$. I just acknowledged that we can use S6 theme installer now

    Post some screen shots. Should look awesome. Once there are more in the Play Store, we will have so many customization options,

    I don't have the Note 4 yet but I saw a youtube video explaining the steps to port the themes installer from S6

    Remember, the version of Lollipop that was released had a memory leak and that will be fixed in the upcoming Lollipop release whenever that is.

    Which version is it ? Is there the same issue expected on the GS6?

    I just read in a Forbes article that Google has finally identified the cause of the memory leak and it will be fixed in 5.1.1. That's not to say those with OEM skins - like TouchWiz or Sense - won't fix the issue in their builds sooner if they know the cause.

    The GS4 is out of date? Really? Mine works as well as I'd like... does everything I've asked of it in business or in personal life. Phone call quality, texting, browsing, maps, location, size of screen... all still work well.

    Plus... I still swap out batteries and reboot in under forty seconds. I'm not tethered to a charge cable.

    You talk too much!

    I hope that is the case. Otherwise, I may wait until the fix is pushed out OTA to purchase my GS6.

    I'm not that worried about the memory leak. Not everyone is suffering from issues with it. The symptoms of it have been random reboots and lag for users on 5.1. On my Nexus 5, I'm running 5.1 and haven't experienced any of the issues reported. However, I did do a full system wipe and installed factory images. Before when I upgraded to lollipop using the over-the-air update, I experienced a lot of issues and many of those were resolved once I did full flash to 5.1. The memory leak may be caused by users doing an upgrade compared to a full system image install. Additionally, the OEMs will review the software and make their own changes as well. I personally have no concerns buying the phone when it is released.

    The memory leak issue was the mostly in 5.0 and 5.01. Google fixed it somewhat in 5.02 but 5.1 and above is supposed to fix it completely.

    The memory leak bug is in 5.1. It has been fixed internally, but a fix hasn't been made available to all yet.

    It was even worse in 5.0x versions. Google fixed it somewhat in 5.1 but still left some bug and they fixed this recently.

    Fix for Lollipop's massive memory leak coming soon-ish
