    Most interesting aspect of the top photo is how the Note 5, the latest iteration of the the original 'phablet', is physically the smallest of the 4. ;)

    Smart phone addition :) :apple: Glad I'm not the only one!

    One question, how do you split your time with each and ensure your data is in sync across all devices? Namely text/iMessages?

    I have the 6S+ and Note 5 but with iCloud services it's difficult to cross sync.

    I haven't figured out how to sync text messages. Every thing else is easy.....email and apps. I use Nova so I restore my current back up to my Android devices.

    It seems weird that they're all bigger than the Note 5 which I believe has a bigger screen

    Interesting. I have the note 3, and iPhone 6s Plus. I mainly use my iPhone. My note is mainly for my network marketing businesses. Do you use one as a business line and the other as personal? How do you juggle multiple phones?

    The note 5 is my favorite of all if them. IMHO it offers the most functionality. It does have a great screen to bezel ratio.

    Well....I have an addiction.... They are all for my personal use.

    I switch between them depending on my mood. Sometime weekly or even daily.

    The two that get the most use are the Note 5 and iPhone 6s plus.

    whew glad to hear it's not just me. I have had an iPhone since the first one. I got the Samsung phone because I wanted to try another platform, and wanted the gear watch . Prior I had a smart phone and a basic. Now that Apple Watch is out, I have that. I've had 2 phones for years, when people ask why, I usually say , "because".

    I'm thinking about trading up to the note 5. Do you like it?

    The nexus 6p, Moto X pure and Note 5 have same size screen ;)



    Currently ...

    I have the S6 Edge +, Moto X Style, 6s + and the 6P myself.

    My daily driver I change about once a fortnight, but always carry a secondary device which can be any of the others.

    I haven't actually used my Edge + for more than a few weeks though tbh as I had intended to sell.

    I was going to sell my edge + for the blackberry priv but it's still incredibly elusive here that I haven't found one for sale. So instead as I now have to pay for my iPad Pro that should arrive tomorrow I'll likely sell it and put it towards that.

    Still going to keep an eye out for the priv though as it just stokes my interest. Or maybe lumia 950 XL, (for continuum) though my interest in Windows phones has subsided considerably since the 1520 & 930 but other than those two devices (priv & 950 XL) there's nothing else out there at moment I want to try.

    The Note 5 gets used more than the others tbh. It is my go to phone. The build quality and fit and finish is top notch. Then it has the features and tools to make it very versatile. My second favorite is the the iPhone. I think I have had every iPhone except the original one. :)

    ^ mind you it won't be long before we start the cycle again with the S7 which usually starts building momentum from January onwards :)

    So true....its about to begin all again. I look forward to see what the S7 will be. I know whatever the S7 has will make its way to the Note 6 and then some.

    The future of the Note is going to be the most interesting this coming year. I don't think any of us would have predicted them killing it in Europe this time last year, so it's going to be interesting to see how it does sales wise and what the future of it will be in USA and Asia.

    There is still no other comparable device exactly so it would be a shame to see it killed completely but anything is possible it seems these days :)

    That's true I'm sure I don't exactly keep up.

    What

    What's the 6P like compared to the 6S Plus? Battery, screen and camera?

    Also, 6.0? I got rid of my Note 5 as I preferred my 6Splus but have an itch to try true android.

    Any idea how quick Google is shipping atm?

    Thanks.

    The screen quality is very good on the Nexus 6P. I use RGB mode to reduce the saturation and colours look very similar between it and the 6S+

    Resolution wise I personally can't see much difference between QHD & Full HD, the main difference is the black's are much blacker on the AMOLED 6P panel, however the white balance isnt as good as the 6S+ and brightness and daylight viewing is slightly better on the 6S+

    (Note 5 probably has best screen overall combining strengths of both without the negatives of either).

    6.0 is good but to be honest Google On Tap feels like a beta feature and can be irksome when you just want to go straight into search long pressing on home.

    Memory optimisation on marshmallow is great but Doze / enhanced standby battery is a bit Meh! The 6S+ ( and Note 5/Edge+) still get better and more consistent battery life despite of the marshmallow improvements on the 6P.

    Performance through is great and unlike many snapdragon 810 products this year, the 6P has in my experience suffered none of the heating or throttling issues associated with it.

    I got a few "S" model phones (4s, 5s, 6s), iPhone 6, and Nexus 6P

    My 6s is my daily driver currently, but my nexus 6p was and will be my daily driver again. I too switch them up every few weeks. Its fun :p

    When I want to buckle down and get some work done, I use my 4s on iOS 6 so I'm not distracted by using all the latest apps and such. I find it easier to do that always using the newer devices where I inevitably waste time on social media. Its good around exams

    My 5s is my secondary device, and I haul it with me when I use my 6P since I need to get iMessages from family, in and out the country. I thought about just getting the latest iPod touch for this purpose but the 5s was about the same price for me and has the touch ID security, plus doubles as a phone in case I need it.

    Its fun having multiple phones. Can be costly though if you're always carrying the latest lineup every year however.

    The only device there with a different size screen is the 6s Plus which is 5.5", the rest are all 5.7".

    Here's the collection of phones that I "use" every so often. 2015 Moto E, Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3, Lumia 1520, and Lumia 635. I'm going to be giving the Moto E to my mother, be selling the Idol 3, and will keep the Lumia 1520 and 635 around. I've got a Nexus 6P that should be arriving in the next few days. IMG_0102.JPG

    I've been doing a bunch of selling recently, and have got rid of a OnePlus One, OnePlus 2, and a few others. Can't wait for the 6P to arrive.

    I won't even tell you folks how many smartphones I have that are in a drawer that I really don't use anymore. Why didn't I sell them? Well because the resale value was really next to nothing and I felt they were more worth it to hang onto them even though they really weren't in use. I sold the ones that had value enough to pick up something else. Lots that I have kept aren't really flagships and I bought them second hand at good prices.

    I do occasionally once in awhile go back to some of them.

    I'm in the same boat here. I've got many many many others in a drawer for that very same reason. Some highlights of that bunch is: Palm Pixi Plus, Palm Pre 2, and a HP Veer. I bought 'em for webOS and Palm nostalgia and have realized that I don't use / particular need them. What are some of your "drawer devices" Robert?

    I don't have a picture at the moment, but I'm using a Nexus 6, iPhone 6, 2014 Moto X Pure, and 2015 Moto E (phone for snowboarding so I don't break my other phones). I think I may be done using iOS for a while since I got my Nexus 6. I use the N6 as my daily driver right now and it's my favorite phone of them all :)
