    What'd you do? Just swap the Priv for the Note 5?

    Hmmm... I guess in theory yes.

    Now if we went through the entire ends and outs I had the priv on the next plan because I had a feeling I was not going to keep it. The note 5 I bought through best buy out right....well technically all but $200 bucks that I put on a bb card (ill pay that off on the 15th).

    Ill say this, @Sydman you are right touchwiz look much better especially when using another launcher, ie Im using google now.

    Welcome to Note 5 world, pc747. Have fun with it. There will be some things that will spoil you with this device. One of my favorite features is scroll capture... It's so nice doing a screen shot and getting the whole thing in one shot.

    I am a bad influence, that is for sure. I have to say, I have no negative things to say about Touchwiz. The only issue I had with this phone was the bloat that At&t and Samsung put on there. I disabled all of that with the Package Disabler Pro, and that is no longer an issue.

    I really love this phone. I am using Nova Launcher and I can't even really tell this is a Samsung phone. I put a material theme on it from the store and put my custom icon pack on. Very happy with the device.

    The Note 5 would have been the device I went with if I hadn't committed to getting another Nexus. It's definitely a great device, and I nearly picked it up a couple times.

    Actually, I would've entertained the idea of getting another device this time around. There really are many great news things happening with everything that's come out this year. But I've gotten addicted to my s-pen.

    I was torn to be honest. I think at the end of the day it came down to reviews. Yeah Samsung is slow to update but I was floored how the note 5 beat the nexus 6p in every category including battery being on lollipop. So I'm thinking once this get on marshmallow it's a rap. The other thing was that since I was not rooted on the nexus 6 I'm OK with a locked down phone. I'm not selling my nexus 6 as I want a phone that is unlocked to remain in my drawer in case I ever need it.
