    This seems like a completely unrelated, yet related question. Is anyone having an issue with contacts from an exchange email syncing on the 6P. For the love or God I cannot get my work email contacts to sync on Gmail. Any help would be just wonderfu . I've resorted to downloading the outlook app, using that for email then having my work calendar flow to the Google calendar. Heeeeelp

    Wow, @Sydman I looked at you sideways when you said the Note 5 had better radios than the Nexus 6. The place where my Nexus 6 did a great job but still struggled at times to hold a signal my Note 5 locked on.

    Does the 6 or 6p have any features like the moto touchless? I love that it tells me I have a call and who it is while driving. Then asks if I want to answer. Same with texts. I would leave Moto but hate to lose the Touchless, Active features. Are there 3rd party equivalent apps? I just want/need a large screen. Mature eyes suck.

    I need a signature in business emails and the app required $10 to have that option. A tad much for something so basic.

    There are several third party apps for driving. They've all got different features, but I know there are some that will at least tell you who's calling or texting.

    Sorry I can't be more specific, but I don't personally use one. I just know they're out there.

    I've been using ultimate car dock. It will speak and even read messages to you. I got the paid version for $5.00. Well worth it

    Like @Sydman, I had them both. First the screen and camera is better on the note 5. I did not realize how fast the note 5 took pictures until I started taking them on my Nexus 6p.

    At the end of the day the note 5 is the phone for those that want all the bells and whistles. Those who want pure speed, swift updates, and software controlled by Google with no carrier interference then get a Nexus. Basically if you do not understand what that is then you might not mind a note. If you do and you hate having to wait on carriers for your updates then go Nexus.
