    That sucks boys.... Here it's 14 days, 30 mins talk time, or 100 texts or something like that. Nothing else matters. Not even data.

    Depends on the company. As far as I know there is no state or federal regulation regarding it. For Motorola I believe it was 14 days. Most tech companies are 14/15, there is a few that go up to 30.

    Man, Samsung is starting to wear on me. It seems like Samsung is just copying Apple so hard its not even funny. First with the S6 looking exactly like the iphone6 and now the S6 Edge Plus. Even borrowing the naming scheme. And whats going on with the Note series? The s6 plus is almost exactly a Note 5 minus the stylus. The Note 5 now does not have a removable battery or sd card literally making it no longer the power users device. Why not just stick the stylus on the S6 plus instead?

    Not to mention how laggy Samsung's software can be. I thought for sure going from a S4 to a Note 4 would be huge but besides the screen and stylus, it was about the same. And how come the Note 4 does not get some of the streamlined OS features? Meaning, how the slimmed down the OS for the Note 5 and made the S Pen have a different pop up screen. Why couldn't the other Note/S benefit from those? Seems like they only wanted the new users to have those features while crapping on the long term people.

    My Note 4 is my last Samsung device. I really love the stylus but no micro sd card and looking exactly like an iphone is a big no no for me.

    That's your sentiments. Not all of us feel this way.

    Never said you or anyone else felt that way. Its why I put /rant at the end. Not everyone needs microsd or even cares about swapping a battery.

    I think its pretty clear that the Note 5/S6 aggressively close background applications which leads to some jank when re-opening or multitasking. I've personally always hated Samsung's software, my Note 4 was a POS until I got CM on it.

    I bought the 6P, comes October 28th. Hopefully it does indeed use Samsung's latest generation screens. The N6 screen was terrible.

    DerSchniffles, was on the same boat man. Once Samsung releases a new phone the previous model is as good as dead. Even before the n5 release it took them like six months to get 5.0 on it. It really does not help that they are also shortening the time between releases

    I don't think you're going to notice much of a difference unless you just want the smaller size

    Saw the review, didn't do so well unfortunately...

    As usual the battery life is poor.

    I see most iphone users always charging their phones. Hardly a surprise!

    yeah nothing special..



    Speaking of my phone, Im still on 1860mah atm.. That extended 2500mah kit got sold out atm, hopefully samsung releases new soon.

    But I managed this now, turned off auto backlight
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I only adjusted to higher if it was too low outside, otherwise I kept it around 15-25%.
    Not bad, if I kept at auto I managed 4:35hr at best, usually ~ 4hrs.. Now Im really curious @ 33% extra with 2500mah :D
