Note 5 = bigger s6 with a pen Not gonna lie, I'm a bit disappointed. It's not a bad device, but removing mSD slot was a big mistake, especially that they already have a n5 version with it.

But they added ufs, if you like your note 5 to be slower than the s6 just get an A8

Such a pointless comment considering this has pretty much been the case for every Note in the series so far.

expected more, i wanted the note5 but no ir blaster that`s what makes me use my note4 over my iphone6, no way the same guts as the s6. i love the s6 my second go to phone over the week when i don`t have the pocket for a note. not even a little overclocking just feel a little more upgraded, sammy you are killing me

Just for curiosity, is there someone who made the switch from an iPhone 6 to a Galaxy s6 device and who could summary his experience?

i made the switch . Actually the performance is not that big of a deal i own a 64gb iphone6 and a 32gb galaxy s6. the camera department is a huge thing won by the s6. if you like loud music the iphone is the one you can get more out of a good set of earphones. battery is more of a tie both devices make it through the day with medium to heavy use, if i need juice the samsung outperforms only if you carry the fast charger if you carry a juice pack is the same deal. the screen on both devices is great bright nice colors if you are not a fanboy for apple or samsung you`ll love both of them. for me a huge advantage is the ir blaster on the s6 since the iphone does not have it is a meh. both are great if u are into camera device s6, loud music iphone, i`ve had them for quite a while both of them. I switch them a few times a week but i donta have a technical way to say it just by using them no one outperforms the other you need to be real picky in order to tell a difference. Right now i`m using a note4 and i love it the screen is awesome and the stylus is great for work and handling files efficiently. well if you are confused just toss a coin no wrong way on that.
