Despite the popularity of Samsung's Note series, its newly-concocted Galaxy S6 edge+ is, for the most part, either more or as expensive to get than the Note5. Sure, that disparity in pricing differs, but in the US (where both are available), two out of the four major carriers charge more (up to $100) when talking contract pricing, one out of four charges the same for the two regardless of conditions, and one out of four asks less for the S6 edge+ than for the Note5.
It's a confusing statistic, but it certainly makes one thing clear: with some exceptions (most prominently Sprint), US buyers will have the option to pick between the Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ whilst paying the same or nearly the same prices. Faced with that choice, which one would you rather get?
Given the opportunity, what would you get: a Galaxy Note5 or S6 edge+?
I'd get the Samsung Galaxy Note5
I'd get the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+
I'm uncertain, and the prices with my carrier are likely to decide this for me
