Considering you described a phone that doesn't exist on this planet (and isn't in the works by any manufacturer on this planet) I'm assuming that means you will never upgrade.

this is why is smart to upgrade every two years instead of 1 ;)

The first OG-Note was a little wider, than all the other successors... The Note 2,3,4,and now 5, are just "large skinny phones" and has not really lived up to the term Phablet IMO. I long for the days of my "phat" rightly proportionate Note 1 Phablet of old. It's almost like Samsung Flagship Phablet is taking 2 steps forward and 1 step back with each iteration. O.o

I kinda agree with you. But I still love every Galaxy Note for different reasons. The N1 was wide and tall but had a great feel in the hand. N2 was packed with features and so powerful at its time. N3(in black) felt AMAZING in the hand and also was very powerful. N4 is where I think Samsung has almost perfected what a phablet should be. It's awesome in almost way. If N5 has micro sd, and a larger than normal battery it may be the last phone I buy for a couple years for the first time.

The photo of what is suppose to be the Note 5 l, looks like a Note 4. If so, for me that would be very disappointed. I liked the renders better. If the Note isn't appealing, I will get the S6 Edge Plus for Mr and pass my smaller S6 edge to my sister as she wants a new phone

The more I look at the Edge the least I like it. Don't like images wrapping around side. Seems more of a gimmick. Come August we know for sure.
