Guys and girls.

I am up for renewal on my phone in maybe 1-2 weeks. I have been with samsung for the last two phones. Had the Galaxy S3, now the S5. I am highly contemplating the Note 5.

From what I see, the processor is much quicker than the Galaxy range, unsure on the camera quality.

I realise these aren't ideal for the quick 'throw in my pocket and walk away' devices, however other than the size.. any pros and cons??

Note 5 went to no micro SD slot and non removable battery if that's an issue? Apart from that it's alright. I went from a Note 3 to 4 because I preferred the removable battery and SD card.

Note 5 is awesomely fast. Screen is goddamn amazing. Now that I've had 2 phones with Stylus' I have a hard time going back to a phone without.

Screen-off notes is a really cool feature.

Yes the no microsd card sucks the big one though.

Love my Note 3 , Running a note 5 port on it and its pretty fast . like others have said the note 5 has no sd card slot or removable battery .

As for the size of the phone , I have rather big hands so don't notice the size that much .

Also Note 4 will be getting screen off note taking like the Note 5 with Android 6 Marshmallow going by all the leaked ROMS.

at first youll find the note as a big phone.
after a week or 2 youll grab another normal phone and itll feel tiny.

cannot really go wrong with the note.
have the original edge version and its pretty good.

If you don't mind waiting I'd check the S7 out. It brings back SD cards and has some really promising hardware upgrades

ive been running the note 4 for work and had a iphone 6 for personal use, got the shits with the iphone and went to a note5 and havnt looked back, only issue i have is that the stylus broke, droped the phone and it poped out and snapped. so need a new stylus, other than that no faults, works each time every time, no need to restart it or do any silly iphone thing.

So much better being "Free" then locked into the apple eco-system
