Note 5 gets sized up against the Galaxy S6 edge Plus and the S6
If the latest rumors are any indications, we will be seeing the Galaxy Note 5 announced about a month from now, instead of its usual unveiling timeframe of late August/early September. Not only that, but it is expected to be joined by an eventual Galaxy S6 edge Plus, which will arguably be for those who love the side-sloping display of the S6 edge, but want the phone in a larger format. 

That's all they are going to get, though, as the Note 5 is allegedly not going to feature a model with a flexible display - its added value will be the improved S Pen stylus, a rumored huge battery, and hopefully 4 GB of RAM

We'll take it, but in the meantime you can check out how the alleged Note 5 measures up against said Galaxy S6 edge Plus, and the current Galaxy S6 flagship. These size comparisons are based on the leaked CAD drawings and case maker schematics for the Note 5 and S6 edge Plus, so they could very well be very close to reality, though we won't know for sure before the phablets hits the stage in New York, hopefully in about a month or so.

You do know samsung made "Plus" phones long before the iPhone 6 Plus right?

They got rid of it and than now that Apple used it, they return? Also what about Samsung pay? After Apple pay comes out, all of a sudden Samsung pay is a thing? Also who came up with glass back and front, non removable battery/storage. Even the box designs and USB/charge layout are copied from Apple. So much of Apple's design choices taken.

They never got rid of it..there was even an S5 plus last year at least 2 months before the iPhone 6 was announced. So by your logic HTC,Sony,Huawei,Xiaomi,etc who have used a metal or glass combo quite recently all copied Apple?Non expandable storage is a technological bottleneck with UFS 2.0..not a design choice.I personally prefered the option for a removable battery. Box design..really? How are samsung and apple's current packaging similar, and exactly how many ways can you position a USB port on a mobile device with a symmetrical design? Please take your hate somewhere else...this article is about the Note 5

They didnt stop using it. They simply didnt make any "Plus" models anymore. There is a Galaxy Duos Plus a Grand Plus and more. They didnt stop using it. The plus models usually go to Asian markets. if you arent Asian than you wouldn't know about them.

Apple wasnt the first to offer a phone that didnt have a removable battery and storage. Geez. They weren't even the first to have a smartphone. They weren't the first to make a phone out of metal and glass. The Moto Razr V# was the first I've owned made of metal. Predate iPhone by 3 years. They were not the first to have a dual glass phone either. Also, no matter who does it, its a dumb idea. Yes I have an S6 Edge and it si sexy, but I would have been much happier if the back wasnt glass. They didn't have the first fingerprint reader on a phone either - MOTOROLA. Google Wallet was around before Apple Pay. Also Apple is so lame they didnt even use a better technology. They simply are using NFC just like Google Wallet. What makes Samsung Pay better is it uses MagStrip which is the same technology on present plastic cards. It will allow for ANY credit card terminal to take payment from your phone. 90% of retailers already have a compatible terminal. Does Apple pay you guys to be stupid? Or are you born that way? Either way, I feel sorry for you....NOT! You can do better. We have the internet. Google any fact you dont know instead of repeating false BS all your life.

You have to promise to come back and tell everyone how dumb you feel after typing that BS. After they made a Galaxy S5 Plus, they got rid of it....until the Galaxy S6 Plus? Apple's Passbook is now called "Wallet"....kind of like Google Wallet, huh. So, your "pay" problem is pretty pointless. Google made Maps, and now "Apple Maps" is a thing? Also, before you were wrong, you said "they stopped using the term "plus" and then Apple used it. So, you were thinking it was okay for Apple to copy it. So, by your own thinking, how is it not okay for a company to use a glass back and front if Apple stopped using it? Once again, Apple copies = Okay, anyone else = the sky is falling.

Hahahha, Apple went out of there way to go on about screen size and how easy it was to use with one hand And then the big Samsung copy Big screen Sorry if you go out of your way to make ads that show off how your small screen is the best and then you make a phone that's way to big for one hand (unlike the s6) then that a copy and a bad one

Galaxy S6 Mega is a way better than Galaxy S6 Plus. Plus - Apple Mega - Samsung

Are you that dense. The Galaxy S2 Plus predates the iPhone 6 Plus by several years. It was available in the US and T-Mobile had it. I sure wanted it too. It is IMO the best looking phone Samsung has. I wished they had made this model larger and out of metal or poly-carbonate.

In the world of material design companies have mimicked one another for ever. However I'm not going to find myself so hung up on design (Don't get me wrong I don't want ugly) but rather the performance and Sammy has been on the front. I also cannot say with any certainty that Apple pay or Samsung pay was developed first. So I am not going to hang on who made peanut butter first, I just know what I like.

No IR blaster??? Ok this is making me rethink this phone. I use this feature so much with my Note 3, I can't go back. This was the reason I didn't get a Nexus 6...
