Six features to miss when switching from Galaxy Note Edge to iPhone 6 and vice-versa
The wonderful world of flagships is nowadays littered with all sorts of high-end devices, each new one shinier than the last, each standing out with specific design features or unique software functions. We here at PhoneArena try to post up as much objective information in our reviews as we can – spec comparisons, camera shootouts, and versus articles – all in an effort to help you, the readers, understand the pros and cons of every phone and, hopefully, make the choice that is right for you. We also have the more subjective “Living with...” column, where our authors spend at least a month with a flagship in review, and try to convey the experience and feel of using it as a daily driver.

But what if you feel like you didn't make the right choice? What if you often find yourself wishing to switch from your smartphone to another? This is not abnormal, especially if certain issues arise in a specific smartphone over time and it becomes a nuisance to use, or if a shinier flagship with more alluring features gets released.

Well, there are two ways to figure out whether you wish to switch from one smartphone to another. The more obvious one is to measure the pros and the unique features of each handset and make a decision based on those. Another way is to actually determine what you will miss in a handset once you've switched, and then figure whether the lack of those features and functions actually matter to you.

So, for the past month, I have been switching between the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge – a handset that I've been using since the “Living with...” articles from a few months back – and the iPhone 6. Using each phone for around a week at a time, I was able to flesh out a number of things that I would find lacking in one model over the other. So, without further ado, here are the things that I miss when I switch from a Galaxy Note Edge to an iPhone 6, and vice-versa.

Six things that you will probably miss if you switch from an iPhone 6 to a Galaxy Note

Of course, Apple's flagship is in no way a bad device. In fact, there are quite a few things about it that I miss when I switch to the Note Edge. Let's check them out!
