    Best Buy deal, 20-something/month for 24 months. With Verizon unlimited, which is what I already had. So was time to upgrade the aging Note 4.

    First, the cons:

    The screen ration 18:9 is weird. 16:9 is a lot better.
    The curved screen edge is bizarre, adds nothing. I like the conventional look better.
    Seems like a gimmick, much like the stretched-out, 18:9 ratio. The screen does not feel like 6.2". It really needs to maintain the same height but with a bit more width.
    Battery life is abysmal. I am used to the extra capacity of the ZeroLemon batteries.
    It is slippery like a piece of ice the size of 2 credit cards.

    Now the Pros:

    The screen is kick-butt. The resolution is higher than the Note 4 I had. The PPI is very nice (check out isthisretina.com)
    It's very fast. Responsive. I jumped ahead 4 generations it seems.

    I am definitely going to get the ZeroLemon contraption for it, the 8500 mAh extended battery, not just to gain runtime but to add some depth to it. It's almost a certainty I will drop it at one point if I don't add thickness.
