    The stylus on the the note series is more than just a simple stylus. It has extra hardware and software functions, I had a note3 and the stylus features were good and from my understanding they gotten better on the 4.
    If those are the function the S Pen can do, then Steve Jobs was right about my god given 10 natural stylus for the iDevice as my fingers house load of functions for the iDevices. Not only I can type with fingers, I can also achieve lot more... I can't think of anything stylus on note3 can do that my fingers can not do on iDevices today. I should even say that god given natural stylus is more powerful than artificial stylus on note3. But then if you feel stylus it greater than fingers on you note3 than fingers, there you go as that's what I would do. As for me iDevice doesn't need stylus, not even for drawing on the iPad provide the said app is well designed to interact with fingers.

    Spell check homie, look like those natural stylus let you down again lol, and it looks like you didn't clearly read my reply to you where you stated that the stylus is not more powerful than your fingers. Ok can you hover your finger over your screen, click the side button on your finger and have a menu pop up? Also can you tap the screen with your finger then hit the side button on your finger to take a screenshot? So the statement was the spen has more functionality than a finger.

    I came from a Note 3, then briefly a Note 4, then LG G3 and now to iPhone 6 plus. Love it. I thought I'd miss a lot more from Android like widgets but I don't. I thought I'd even miss swiftkey keyboard but not much.

    I have to say the overall experience on my iPhone 6 plus has been more enjoyable than on any of the three androids above. Maybe its due to the ecosystem (wife and kids all have iPhones) or just how smooth and easy everything is on iOS. But I don't see myself going back to android anytime soon.

    I've only had my 6 plus for a week but I do miss some things. I can get by without most widgets, though I did really enjoy them, but I really miss having my calendar widget just out. I'm Forgetful so it was nice having a reminder sort of in my face. I also think copy and paste flows better on android. Just easier to do. I think someone else said that they missed being able to put apps where they want on the screen and I really agree. My android phones usually didn't have many apps out just a couple folders. I have folders on the iPhone as well so it has a more clean look but wishing I could move them to the bottom or even four corners so they aren't all just in a line up top. Other than that, I think the phone is great. Battery is insane, screen is better (in my opinion) than on my note 4 and I like the design.

    I miss not being part of the Apple monopoly. Being in Google+ testing communities. Apple makes it so hard to do anything. But then again, they convinced me to get their device....I have reached the Dark Side :P

    Every time I go from my Note 4 to my 6+ I miss:
    Being able to put apps where I want, Hate auto arrange.
    Widgets (lock screen widgets aren't real widgets. The calendar widget and weather widget on screen shot shows what a REAL widget is.
    Swipe keyboard. They way they added it to iOS 8 is a complete joke and worthless/useless.
    Customization: Note 4 infinite, iPhone ... wallpaper and how many apps are on the screen... that's it...
    Even something as simple as Zedge: I can apply any ringtone, text tone etc right from the app, with iOS you have to do some weird iTunes Physical sync just to use them. That's just Dumb.

    When I reverse and go Note 4, what do I miss from iOS ... umm ..... nothing that I can think of.
    I work for apple and one person Hates iPhone with a passion, but loves macs, and since the release of the iPhone 6, 8 people switched to android simply because they hated the look and feel of the 6/6+ and there are 9-10 others that have always used android.

    One very particular thing I find I'm missing: on Android, if you set an alarm to go off at say 8 pm, an hour or so before 8 you get a notification that there will be an alarm at 8 - and you can dismiss the alarm from the notification before it goes off.

    I haven't seen a way to do this on IOS - you have to wait for the alarm to go off, then dismiss it. Not a really big deal, but irritating.

    The fact that if I want my phone to vibrate when it rings, this also means that I have to have my alarm vibrate when it goes off, too.

    This is my biggest frustration so far. I'm slowly getting used to the back button not being there. I also miss my calendar agenda widget on my screen. Besides these two issues ios has been a pleasure to use.

    Forgot about this. I hate not being able to have folders or move apps wherever I want on the screen. Let us out the apps at the bottom half of the screen. I'm with you on this.

    I've been on Android for years. I don't miss it one bit. The glitchy interface and force closing was getting out of hand.
    this is so accurate ! Force closing is why i finally switched to an iPhone exactly 2 years ago.

    What do I miss from Android? Well, there's little things but I can easily overlook it. However, if you want to know what I miss, I'll tell you.

    On many Android phones, if you pull down on the status bar you get a menu of functions you can turn off; WiFi, Bluetooth, etc. Yes, I know that the iPhone has something similar but let me go on. If you tap and hold the WiFi button on Android it opens up the settings app directly to the WiFi settings page, this doesn't happen on the iPhone. Same goes for the Bluetooth button. If Apple can get this on iOS it would be great.

    But other than that, iOS is perfect!

    I still use Android along with IOS. I've only been using IOS for a week so far. I can't say that I hate it but I can't say that I love it either. What I can say is I'm trying it. Definitely a nice phone. There are several things that I would miss if I completely gave up Android I would like to see  incorporate.
    1. Ability to assign individual tones to each installed app
    2. Ability to silence tones while on a phone call without having to activate on or before each call. ( picture included to show what I'm talking about )
    3. Back button
    4. Ability to add widgets to home screen so I don't actually have to enter the app to see what I want to look at ( Biggie for me )

    Don't get me wrong, the iPhone 6 plus is a nice phone and I am enjoying the learning experience.

    If you uncheck this box, you don't have to worry about any tones blasting while on a call ever.

    Apple allows you to put "widgets" into the "Today" drop-down part that you get when you pull down from the top status bar.

    If you ask me, that's a far more elegant solution when it comes to good use of the battery and CPU time. The widget isn't running all the time taking up CPU time and battery life, it only triggers the run-time of the widget when you pull down on the status bar.

    I'm getting use to that. On Android all I have to do is unlock the phone and there everything is already updated. When I pull down the status bar on the 6+ I find that it all has to update first. Another thing I would like to see if status bar notifications without having to pull the status bar down. As for battery life my note 3 last longer then the 6+ with everything it is doing. Thank you for your reply, very helpful. As I said I am learning this new device.

    My Note 3 had absolutely horrible battery life. I didn't even have to do anything with the phone and it was eating the battery. I have no idea why but that's what was happening. I hated the thing. I couldn't go a day without charging it. Sometimes by the middle of the day I had to either plug it in or swap batteries. I never went anywhere without a spare battery on me, that's how bad it was.

    When I went to battery status in the Note 3 settings I could see that it was barely sleeping and there was no way to find out what app was keeping it awake.

    You can set it up so that you can access the notifications without having to unlock the iPhone.

    I've heard that from some Note owners. Mine usually lasts on the upward part of 2 days between charges. When I travel I use my extended battery and get around 4.5 days depending. I'm learning day by day about the iPhone. It's a good phone. There are things that I will lay it down and grab the Note to do and vise versa.

    Then you were lucky with your Note, my experience was far from what yours was. There were moments where I'd watch the battery percentage drop while I was at the home screen. There were so many, many times that I wanted to throw the thing at the wall.

    Maybe it was because it was a Samsung and they were known for loading it down with a ton of bloatware but after having two Android phones that did the same thing, eat battery life, I said enough was enough and jumped ship to the iPhone. I've been loving the idea of having a phone that I don't have to practically be tethered to a wall charger.

    I understand that. My wife and both my daughters have the iPhone 5s and their battery last maybe 4 to 5 hours at the most. They constantly have to have a charger with them. Both my son and myself have the 6+ and we can go all day without charging. The bloatware on android is aggravating, but I have all the turned off or deleted on mine.

    How old are those iPhone 5s models that your family members have?

    You might suggest the idea of going to an Apple Store to have an Apple Genius look at their iPhones. Apparently, Apple Genius Bar technicians have access to an Extended Battery Life Test that allows them to see a detailed report of battery usage on your device. It takes only a few minutes to run and is quite comprehensive.

    They might just find out that the battery itself inside the device is in need of being replaced. Most lithium ion batteries have a life of maybe a year to a year and a half. Anything past that point and you're going to see a serious drop-off in battery life.

    Mine is just as good except when I use my Gear S watch with it. I can always count on getting about 3 hrs and 24 hrs stanby while connected to the watch.
