    I used to be a batter swapper too until I purchased a 10,000 mAH external battery on Amazon. It's nice not to have to take off my case, remove the back, swap batteries, put the back back on, and then put it back into the case.

    Now it is plug and play.

    I've got a 20kmah,a 15kmah, a 5kmah a 3kmah backup batteries and a solar charger in case those aren't enough. All of them were killer deals posted on this forum this year, the 5kmah posted in 2013.
    No second battery needed for me either.
    Having lollipop ensures I need extra juice on hand.

    I played with the Note 5 yesterday in my local Verizon store. It is slimmer then my Note 4 and the screen is a little better my Note 4. But nothing else really stood out to make me want to give up my Note 4 for it. Another guy standing next to me had the same grips I have about no MicroSD card slot. Every one like to say use the Cloud for to make up for the lost of SD card. But how much I personally use with work and movies would cost an little fortune on the cloud and not including extra data charges for those of us that do not have unlimited data. I use drop box for my church photos and videos and 50GB was gone within a month. For now I know I made the right decision with sticking with my Note 4. If a 128GB ever get released by Verizon. I might consider buying it. I am so happy with my Note 4. Battery and MicroSD slot. It is hear to stay until Notes 6 or 128GB. What ever comes 1st.

    Anyone that made the jump from Note 4 to note 5..... can you give a battery life comparison? Screen comparison? Camera comparison? I am really on the fence about switching to a note 5.

    I agree! I went from the N3 to the N5 and it was not that noticeable of a difference...The camera and a few s-pen enhancements. If it was not necessary for me to take advantage of a price advantage on my bill, I would have waited for the N6.

    If you can wait definitely for Note 6 ...though IMO the latest is head above the previous two Note models

    if i knew that New Samsung Models would have Brought back MicroSD I would have held off on my Note 5 and Saved my Bill. Although I did get a $200 GC and Wireless Charger. Looks like I may just trade mine in or see if there is any Great Deals and use a Different Line Upgrade If the Note 6 is a Real Killer. lol

    True that. Note1 to Note2 was a huge leap in just about everything and Note2 to Note3 was a huge jump in ergonomics but the Note3 to Note4 was a minor update and Note4 to Note5 added some neat things while experimenting with a couple of backward steps, according to many, in the removable areas.
    I'll look at the Note6 when it comes out but to be honest id still be content with my Note2 of I hadn't switched carriers and it not work on my new carrier do I don't see the 6 making me Jones for a new one.

    I think my note 2 is my favorite phone off all time.
