    I'm due for an upgrade soon and not sure which one to get. I currently have the GNote3. Some say get the 4 others say wait for the 5. My question is how much of an upgrade is the 4 from the 3 as it relates to features, etc?

    I'm not going to be much help here but will say I love my note 4. Everyone complains about lag but after the lollipop update I did an FDR and haven't had any lag issues. I don't have battery drain and camera focus issues but VZW is sending a replacement for me to try.

    I have had some free time this evening and after having the phone since February I am just forcing myself to really use/learn some of the S pen and other features and have to say that if I can use them more and get familiar with them they will be very helpful/useful features.

    Well it sounds like you are enjoying your GN4 so that's helpful. Thanks

    I went to the Note Edge from the Note 3 and although on paper it doesn't look like much of an upgrade it is a much better phone. The camera is miles ahead of it, the screen is a lot better, and the pen writes better. The speaker is better as well.

    The Note 3 was my favorite phone of all time and it has been solidly replaced by my Edge.

    If sdcards and swappable batteries are a must for you then I would run with the Note 4. If they don't matter to you then I would go with the Note 5. It will be an even larger leap forward than going from the N3 to the N4.

    I never even thought of the Note Edge. I do prefer an SD card though. So I'm leaning towards the Note 4. Thanks :)

    Well the Edge is the Note 4 with one curved side. It has the sdcard and removable battery as well. Depending on whether or not you would utilize the Edge would determine if the price difference would be worth it.

    The wife likes her Note 4 and she came from the S5 which was her favorite phone of all time.

    The only thing she grumbles about is me making her do a Factory Data Reset after every software update. It just makes it a better user experience even though I can't really get that point across to her lol.

    Yeah I always do a FDR whenever there is a major update on my phones. So the Edge is the Note4? Clearly I need to do more research, Lol

    Yeah it is a Note 4. I guess calling it the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Edge would have been too much of a mouthful lol.

    I really wanted the Note 5 Edge, but they decided not to make one this year even though demand for last year's was stronger than their production capabilities.

    Actually there is a note 4, a note 4 edge and a note 5. The difference between the N4 and the N4 edge is that N4 edge has a scrolling screen on the right edge. Other than that they are almost the same phone.

    Omg, me too cece5702. My son wants the just released Samsung galaxy 6 edge +. Which is a very different phone than the Samsung galaxy 6 edge. My head was swimming trying to make sure I was looking at the right phone.
