    Default Re: Have you switched from a Note 5? Hindsight Appreciated!

    I switched to the 6 plus after many many years on Android...since OG Droid actually. Of late though I had found the Samsung Note line very appealing, and went from Note 2 to Note 3 to Note 4, which is where I ragequit Android and bought an iPhone literally out of anger...and I'm glad I did. I still love Android and the freedom and power it offers, it's an amazing OS, but with that open platform you introduce control issues that I just couldn't tolerate anymore. I just needed something that worked, every day, and the iPhone (even running beta releases) does that for me. I actually upgraded to the iPhone 6s Plus when that came out, and I'm loving it.

    The things I miss about my Note are:

    - Folder and file control and management (download or side load anything from anywhere and do anything i want to or with it)
    - Spen and it's suite of app integrations (arguably the greatest Touchwiz apps ever)
    - Screen size. I love HUGE HD displays. I could carry a 6" phone easy, so that extra real estate is a big pro for me

    And that's pretty much it. Not having Spen took some getting used to, but I'm over it. And screen size is really more of a nice to have, so the biggest loss for me is file management. I don't like beig forced to use specific applications to manage specific files. I deal with it though, and it's actually not often I find myself in a situation where it's an issue, although when I am in that situation, it's rather frustrating.

    At the end of the day though, iPhone is doing what i want it to do, be reliable and fast, and that's what i love about it. I used to think I "needed" all of the customization capabilities Android offers, but in reality, tinkering with icons, icon grids, home screen layouts, and widgets was really a big waste of time for me, especially with OCD tendencies. Apple just puts it all in a fairly neat place, and presents it all well, and that suits me just fine.

    Yup. Pretty much my situation to a "T". I love Android. Love the customization and freedom. But there are exactly zero Android phones I trust in the same respect as an iPhone. We're in the same boat. Except I just joined the Apple bandwagon about a week before Christmas with the 6s Plus. Just got my iPad Pro today and I'll be picking up my Apple TV tomorrow.

    I have a 6S+ and a 6S and still considering buying a Note 5.

    I still have a Note 4 and a Note Edge and those two phones have been the most amazing Android phones I have ever owned. I don't know if anything can top them.

    I will always buy the latest iPhone.

    I just bought iPhone 6s plus and am loving it, switching from Note 4. For me getting the 128GB model is the best decision i made. I am also considering uploading all the videos of the games i purchase just to show how silky smooth the software is. I cant post links because my post count is below 10 posts

    I can see your point, which is why I preferred the Nexus phones. Those followed a similar design philosophy as Apple. Google designs both the hardware specs and the OS and software to go hand in hand, without all the skins, bloat and extra features.

    Not that all those things are bad.. Samsung has added some cool stuff as others have noted. But Google has done an incredible job of polishing the UI and seamlessly integrating all of its services at the OS level, that it is every bit as fluid, elegant and refined as anything that Apple has ever put out...

    Even the Google Photos app, I like better than Apples. It works much better IMHO, and you are not hit with the 5GB limit, which I am WAY over... Nice to run the Google app on either Android or iOS, and have it work the same and whatever pics I have or take on any device, are pushed within seconds to all the other devices, with unlimited storage..

    Yeah, I definitely prefer Nexus or as close to stock as possible. But even the latest Nexus phones have their share of issues. The 6P suffers from weak build, Bluetooth connectivity problems, LTE issues (especially on AT&T), and some other issues. This phone has been out since October and they still don't have this cleared up. I don't have problems like that on my iPhone. I prefer Android's OS (the customization and freedom to do more), but I don't prefer the problems that come along with that openness. I still use Google for everything else though and love the Google Photos App. Other than the App Store, I don't really use anything Apple specific.

    I had the Nexus 6, and to be honest had no issues with it. It was a solid phone, fast, great screen, awesome dual front facing speakers so when watching a video in landscape mode, you actually got loud, stereo sound out of it... Marshmallow was a great OS, everything just worked.

    Not sure what teething problems the 6P had, I never tried that one...

    I had no issues with the 6, either, other than the fact that it was a behemoth.

    The 6P looks awesome. I think it's a great looking phone. Speakers and camera and screen are great too. I would absolutely use one... If it didn't have the issues it has. I need a phone that works and that I don't have to mess with constantly to get working correctly. Right now, the iPhone is it.

    Overall I wish I had stayed with the Note 5. I got a 128GB 6s when I switched carriers. I miss the screen on the Note. Not just the size but the quality of color and resolution. It is much better than my iPhone. The pen was handy and I really like how I could customize the launcher with Nova Launcher. My most used apps were on the bottom with the ability to swipe over a couple rows rather than pinning my 10 most used apps to one page. I also liked pinning a full screen calendar widget. The iPhone camera is good but the Note 5 was definitely better.

    The iPhone runs a bit smoother and battery life is much better. I haven't really had an issues with iOS and it's nice that it is kept current. The Note is still waiting for Marshmallow - I thought it was going to get it at the end of December. So much for timely updates. All in all I miss my Note 5. The iPhone is nice but I wouldn't pick it over the Note unless you are locked into Apple's ecosystem.

    Thankfully, my 6P performed flawlessly but for other reasons i felt it prudent to switch back to iOS. My 128GB 6 Plus will be in tomorrow at which point I'll ship out my 128GB 6. I'm all in for Swappa now. Craigslist be d*mned!

    Sad to say, I miss configuring my screens and icons. Swaying back to my Note 5. I wonder if I can even last a week with the 6s Plus...

    Had the 6S Plus then went over to the Note 5. Note was great and all but I just didn't like the SW at all plus my carrier couldn't even update the security on a monthly basis. I mean the Note 5 has a security patch from Nov 1st and still nothing. I am done with carriers and waiting so I got the Nexus 6p mid Dec and absolutely love the phone. Not a single issue with LTE, Bluetooth or anything. Definitely the best phone I've used to date. It's either Nexus or iPhone from now on. Done with OEM Androids. Not dealing with carriers anymore.

Also do not forget the Note 5 while it has a much better display it's also a larger display than the iPhone 6/6s Plus in a smaller body that's easier hold. Can't forget the spen. There were two class of Note users 1. Those who used the spen 2. Those who did not use it. The beauty of the spen is its out of site, out of mind. It's there when you need it and out of the way when you don't. The software isn't configured in such a way that makes you use it either, which is nice.

    Now that Apple has their version of a "stylus" it will be interesting to see if they incorporate a version of it in their plus line devices in the future.
    The wireless charger was finicky for me... sometimes it worked sometimes it didnt!

    iPhone 6S Plus battery has easily outperformed the Note 5! 100%. Im at 35% after unplugging at 8am and using it pretty heavily at times! Most noticeable in standby time but still outperforms when the screen is on as well!

    Note 5 wouldve been dead by 3-5pm 100%!

    Fast charging was nice but I dont want to bring a charger with me when I go out and sit by a plug!

    The S Pen was super slick but I literally used it maybe a handful of times over a span of two months!

    Definitely miss the screen though

    For me... again... the most important aspects... battery life and reliability... Apple wins!

    My Note 5 is at about 40% at 5pm. With quick charge and 15 min I'm back up to about 90% So not a problem for me. I also have iPhone 6s plus but I always seem to use the Note 5

    I still considering buying a Note 5. There are things that Android phones do better that I wish my iPhone could do and there are things my iPhone does better that I wish my Android phones could do.

    Every year I'll likely continue doing what I've been doing, buy the latest iPhone and then buying either a Nexus or Note. To this day, i still am amzed at the display quality on my Note 4/Note Edge.

    One of the other things I like on my Android phones is in setting the font size. I set it to large and that size is carried over to every app that I use. On iOS, it doesn't work that way. Sure it works in some apps but I have so many apps where the font size is small even with the font size adjusted in settings a few ticks to the right of the middle setting and there is not way to adjust the font size within a few of those apps.

    Also, I seriously love the camera as others have mentioned on my Android phones over the iPhone camera. The clarity and color reproduction is top notch as well as I get bigger resolution pictures then I do on the iPhone.

    I still prefer to use my 6S at my job because I can actually make a call with one hand instead of having to really move the phone in my hand to reach a number on the keypad. I don't feel like I might drop the phone. I like using the bigger phones when I am at home or other places where I can use both hands.

    I like having choices. And many phones. I don't get bored.

    Here is another little annoying iOS trait...

    I have an email chain going and I respond to the email... I type my response, and I need to attach a picture of the receipt that I took for my reimbursement. I can't.

    There is no "attach" button like every other smartphone and computer platform in the world has had for a decade. Apple, in their infinite wisdom, decided that people don't need to attach pics to emails...

    Now, I can go to Photo gallery, and I can select a pic, and then select share, and then select email and then I can can start typing an email and it will be attached...

    But I have to do those specific 5 steps in order to attach a pic, and I cannot do that if I am in the middle of a conversation... WTF?

    My wife, who is on her Note 5 and can be doing whatever she wants in email and just hit an "attach" button and select the pic, PDF, word doc, etc..., just like you would in Outlook. is laughing at me right now.

    If I want to do that, I had to email the pic to myself and then go log into my desktop and respond to the email chain and attach it from there...

    There is nothing "smart" about this smart phone in that regard.

    Basic, useful, industry-standard functionality that is so needed and obvious, and yet Apple decides not to do it, just to be different...

    Lame.

    To attach a photo or video, long touch in the area where you type the response and there will be a popup. Hit the arrow on the right side and select insert photo or video.

    I also forgot to mention that you can select a picture in the photos app and then select copy. Then in your reply, press and hold in the reply email and in the popup, select paste. Your picture is now in the email as well.

    I have a few things that keep me using Android phones:

    1. The ability to change any screen to the home screen. This allows me to have several different screens setup for different situations and I can make any one of them the default in just a few seconds.

    2. The ability to arrange the app icons in any way. I can have one app icon on the top right corner and the rest at the bottom or leave a space in between any app.

    3. Default apps. I can make Firefox my default browser and I can install plugins for this browser just as I can with plugins in Firefox on my Mac. I was blocking ads in Firefox many years ago on my first Android phone in 2012.

    4. On any Note (Note 4 or 5 is what I have) I can simply draw on the screen the portion that I want to capture in a screen cap and send that off to someone instantly without having to crop the screen cap using the photos app, saving some time.

    5. Writing a note with the pen is many times much faster then opening an app and typing it out. I use this for my job all the time making it easier to submit my daily summary at the end of my shift so I never forget something important.

    I'm sure there are other reasons too but these are my tops.

    I had the Note 5 and I currently have the iPhone 6s Plus as my daily driver and the Note 5 is the overall better device. There's more practical functionality with that device, including the S Pen, Samsung Pay, wireless charging, and the overall customization of the Android platform. The Note 5 also takes better low-light photos. It's also really easy to add music to the Note 5. Just plug the phone into you computer and drag and drop. There's no fumbling with iTunes, which can be annoying at times. Oh, and the display on the Note 5 is the best on the market.

    What I like about my 6s Plus is that the battery life is better than the Note 5. The fingerprint sensor is also more accurate on the 6s Plus than the Note 5. On the Note 5, I only had about a 50% success rate the first time I put my thumb on the fingerprint sensor. It's been 100% so far on my 6s Plus. I also like that the 6s Plus has the ability to be waterproof with the addition of a Lifeproof case and that's important because I work outside for my job. I need to be able to make and receive phone calls when it's sunny, snowing, or raining outside. I also like FaceTime. I can use FaceTime whenever I'm out on the road and I want to chat with my family. I don't know why Android doesn't have an equivalent of that yet. And the most important thing the iPhone 6s Plus (Apple, in general) does better than the Note 5 (Samsung): software updates. It's terrible that the Note 5 is still stuck on Lollipop. Samsung announced that it'd have Marshmallow on its devices in December and it still doesn't have it at the beginning of February. The S7 will have Marshmallow before the Note 5.

    I think the problem is that people don't take the time to learn these phones. SquireSA for example doesn't know how to do attachments in mail, back to Android. Not that you did, just setting an example of how quickly people can change their minds because something pissed them off. Retinella doesn't have luck with the fingerprint sensor on the Note 5 but it's probably because of user error. Then they switch back to Apple. I've gone back and forth and always come back to Apple. Not because it's Apple but because it just works. Battery life on standby is crazy good too. I don't feel like deleting an app to get better battery life. (Samsung)

The Note 5 also takes better low-light photos. It's also really easy to add music to the Note 5. Just plug the phone into you computer and drag and drop. There's no fumbling with iTunes, which can be annoying at times. Oh, and the display on the Note 5 is the best on the market.

    What I like about my 6s Plus is that the battery life is better than the Note 5. The fingerprint sensor is also more accurate on the 6s Plus than the Note 5. On the Note 5, I only had about a 50% success rate the first time I put my thumb on the fingerprint sensor. It's been 100% so far on my 6s Plus. I also like that the 6s Plus has the ability to be waterproof with the addition of a Lifeproof case and that's important because I work outside for my job. I need to be able to make and receive phone calls when it's sunny, snowing, or raining outside. I also like FaceTime. I can use FaceTime whenever I'm out on the road and I want to chat with my family. I don't know why Android doesn't have an equivalent of that yet. And the most important thing the iPhone 6s Plus (Apple, in general) does better than the Note 5 (Samsung): software updates. It's terrible that the Note 5 is still stuck on Lollipop. Samsung announced that it'd have Marshmallow on its devices in December and it still doesn't have it at the beginning of February. The S7 will have Marshmallow before the Note 5.
    Good to see ya over on iMore! I tend to agree with pretty much everything you have said. I've been an Android guy for YEARS (back to the OG Droid X). I dabbled in iOS here and there, but never on it for more than a couple of weeks for the most part. I switched off of Android to the 6s Plus the week before Christmas and haven't been able to make the jump back yet. Nothing beats the overall package that the 6s Plus has. Sure the Note has a better screen, but does it make that much of a difference in day to day use? Nah. The 6s Plus is plenty sharp. The Note has a better camera, but it isn't light years better that it has hampered my use - and I have a toddler that I'm constantly chasing around when it comes to picture time. The battery on this thing is awesome. I never ever ever worry about my battery life. I can't say that about any Android phone I've ever had (I'm on AT&T so I can't have the monster Droid Maxx batteries). This thing is also incredibly smooth and stable. Now, the most current Android phones are plenty smooth and stable, but this just feels like everything works in cohesion. And Apple gives me peace of mind with updates and warranty issues. They stand behind their products no matter where you bought them and it's easy to get something fixed or replaced if necessary.

    And for reference's sake over the last 6 months I've had the Note 5, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P, so I've been around the block with Android phones. And while there are definitely some things I'd love to replace on my iPhone (default apps and ability to move apps where I want, being the two biggest issues), for the most part the experience has been awesome. It's almost been a relief after dealing with the quirkiness of Android.
