    Which phone would you rather have, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or the upcoming Motorola-made Nexus 6?

    Nexus! I had a Samsung Galaxy S4 and was not as impressed, and the Note is just too big as a main phone for me.

    I'm gonna stick with my note 4 preorder. I do kinda miss having a Nexus device, but I'm sold on the specs & the added functionality of the s pen.

    I've had several moto phones over the last 5 years & grew tired of them. Still stuck with Samsung for now.

    I know they're different devices, but after the new moto x got less than stellar camera reviews, I don't want to take the chance that the nexus will have similar issues in lower light settings. I'm no professional photographer, but I get some pretty darn decent shots with the s4, so I can only imagine the improvements on the note 4.

    Isn't the nexus a 5.9" screen? Is the phone itself a little smaller despite a slightly larger screen?

    Note series are the best IMO of all the Samsung phones ..I preordered the N4 but I'm having second thoughts as I would like to have a Nexus again ..so I can rid myself of the last Verizon debacle...

    Verizon debacle? Not sure what you mean? The unlimited data fiasco?

    Because, having owned a Galaxy Nexus, I'll be the first to tell you that, even though the nexus program means quicker and guaranteed updates, vzw takes its sweet time releasing the same updates that other carriers send out slow themselves...

    I owned the Verizon Nexus and that was a total mess with them ..redheaded stepchild for sure ...I'm surprised they are going to join the party ...but then again it makes sense bc it's Motorola ...they have that relationship with Verizon ...

    Yeah, IMO people don't really use "fast OS updates" as their main reason to purchase a Nexus over a comparable flagship device the way they once did.

    Exactly. I'd be more apt to wait for my first phablet if I knew the update schedule wouldn't be as crappy as the galaxy nexus. As it stands, we're already seeing leaks of android L on the s5 and that and the note 4 are slated to receive the update, so I'll be running it with touchwiz, which has actually grown on my with the s 4. Are there a lot of options that I turned off when I first go it and still don't use? Yes. Are there widgets in my app drawer that I tried for a few minutes and never put on my homescreen again? Of course, but the little things that I do use from it are nice and with the specs of the note, they won't be hurting anything, even when it comes to storage space.

    Hmm. Maybe I spoke too soon? Have to do more investigation. Still if the Nexus is as big as the note then maybe I'll have to settle for the Turbo. Our maybe I'll get both and tether the Turbo off the Nexus?
