The best cell phone for 2015? iPhone 6 plus, Galaxy Note 4 Edge or ?

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.

Galaxy Note 4 Edge

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.

 

 

Apple iPhone 6 plusOr, 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 

iphone 6+ vs Galaxy Note 4 Edge

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.

It seems most phones now would serve whatever you need with one having a edge over the other somewhere else.  It looks like Apple is finally getting smart to the bigger is better bunch but I have always been an Andriod fan.

I bought the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and love it!  I can't understand why it won't let you surf the internet while you are on the phone though, but I don't use it as a phone much so I can work around that.  It does seems backwards though in that my first "smart phone" over 10 years ago was capable of multi-tasking that way.  Maybe the next update will fix it.

I embraced the iPad and iPhone platform so the 6plus with the larger screen has been a winner for me!

Cheryl Ritchie I think the best platform is the one people personally learn to use the most.  Someone who mastered the old Treo phones is still better off than the person that just buys the iPhone 6 plus or Samsung Note 4 and doesn't learn how to use them.
