I have been using the Galaxy Note 2 since it was first released back in late 2012, so I am in the market for a new cell phone. Not because my Note 2 is worn out or no longer functional, but just because I am a Geek and want a more state of the art phone.
I researched the Galaxy Note 4 Edge but am a bit concerned about accidently launching apps. Unfortunately, it is too high end of a phone for local stores to carry and let me demo. Even with my upgrade, it would run me $429 with Sprint. I guess I could go with the Note 4 and ony spend $299 with my upgrade.
Or, I would go with Apple's iPhone 6 plus. I am sure some of you think that is a great phone, but then I would have to buy new apps to go with it since I am not a big Apple guy. I have read lots of reviews comparing the two and they are truly both great phone options. Peronally, I think I will stick with the Android platform since I also have an Android based hybrid laptop and my current phone is Android.
Here is a pretty good chart I found on Motley Fool's website: www.fool.com
Then, I just reviewed some of the fun things that were just released at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. I had to laugh at myself when I realized I was concerned if the extra $130 for the Note 4 Edge was worth it over the standard Galaxy Note 4 until I saw the following that blew it out of context. There is a new phone out that I could by for $6,000 and it is Android based.
But just in case $6,000 for a smart phone seems a bit to over the top knowing it will be obsolete in a year or two, here is a link that does a pretty good job of comparing the Apple 6 plus and Galaxy Note 4.
If all this isn't enough to boggle the mind, keep in mind that historically, Samsung releases their Galaxy S_ line in the second quarter of the year, so keep your eyes and ears open about pre-release details of the Galaxy S6.
