    My thoughts were.

    The Note 5 has better battery life, a better camera, arguably better screen, better (IMO) premium feel in the hand, easier to use one-handed, and all of my current chargers (included wireless) work with the Note 5.

    I know at some point I am going to have to switch to USB-C as a standard, but right now it does not seem to make sense. I just bought a QC 2.0 10,000 mAh battery pack that would be pointless to use with the 6P.

    For me there were too many negatives and not enough positives. The stock Google experience is nice, and those speakers were fantastic. However, I never listen to music that way, I always use BT headphones or my Audio Technicas at work. The OS experience on my Note 5 has been flawless for me. I feel the Note 5 runs better than my Nexus 6 ever did.

    I am running Nova Launcher and have a custom material theme, I don't really even know I have a Sammy phone. Until I use some of the great features the S-Pen offers, then I appreciate having one. That scrolling screen capture is really cool and have used that a lot more than I thought I would. All of this pretty much made up my mind for now.

    Sold it for $600, so made $70 over my initial investment, plus I still got the $50 in the Play Store. Dude I sold it to was happy, and so was I. Just made sense.

    I really can't say enough good things about the Note 5. I am of the belief the Note 5 is a better phone than the Nexus 6P. Though if price is a concern, the 6P makes more sense.

    Also put a dBrand black leather skin on the back. Cover up that AT&T logo.

    How hard is it to get those skins on right?

    Seems like it'd be a pita to get it smooth & straight, but I was thinking I might grab one for my 6P at some point down the road.

    What about if you wanna change it. Hard to take the skin off? I assume you'd ruin/stretch the skin when taking it off, depending on material.

    Played with the Note 5 again today. I dont know, yes the display is far better and the features impress me. But something about it ...I mean maybe I'm feeling the Nexus. With that said I am not so sure Im ready to snag the Nexus 6P considering I have a 6, especially with my kind of ready for a smaller device now. I plan on checking out the priv when it hits ATT. Be interesting to see if I end up bringing it home. Then again I need to just wait and let the hype die on itself and snag it for a steal by late December.
