    I currently have an iPhone 6 64GB Space Grey, I recently got a bonus from work while it was free money so to speak, i decided to use some of it and pick up a Black Note 4, if i didn't like it i could easily take it back.

    Now i could have easily gone for either the S6 or Edge if i could find one that is simfree but i rather have the option to add 128GB SD card for media and removable battery, while using the internal just for apps.

    So been using the Note 4 for a few hours & overall I'm very happy with this Phablet, yes there is some slight lag here & there nothing that put me off but this device is still running Kitkat 4.4.4, what is refreshing is how I can upload pictures in the background to dropbox and customize my screen anyway i want also the 5.7" QHD screen is brilliant, I no longer need to be link to itunes to install music ect plus i know have the option to play FLAC music if i choose so to do, also whatsapp is so much better on Android than iOS.

    And omg a notification LED, no longer do i need to keep picking up my phone every 2 minutes to see if i have a miss call or message.

    Going back to the iPhone 6 i now realize just how restricted iOS is compared to android to the point iOS is just plain boring, only 2 members of my family have iphones so won't miss imessenger and never used facetime.

    One of the main reasons for choosing the iPhone was the camera, which no deigning is superb but i feel image quality form both video and pictures moreso HDR on the Note 4 is just slightly better and also now having 4K recording with OIS really does produce some superb quality video.

    My iPhone 6 is now going up for sale, I never thought i would do this as the iPhone 6 is a good device, but the Note 4 is just that much better I feel, I'm now looking forward to what Samsung brings with the Note 5 later on in the year.

    Ah...your eyes have been opened....welcome to the dark side!

    If you like the notification light. try going to the Playstore and get an app called Light Manager. It will let you use a different colored light for different notifications. Like a green light for emails or a blue light for texts a red light for a missed call just to name a few. So you can tell what kind of notification you have just by looking at your phone without touching it.

    I was actually looking at the Note 4 this morning, seeing how the G4 compares first.

    Congrats to your enlightenment


    I am in the same boat, if the G4 disappoints me, I will go for the N4.

    Tomorrow I gonna put my iPhone 6 up for sale on Gumtree it's in perfect condition & hopefully get a quick sale, I'm gonna price it slightly higher than what i paid for my Note 4, so hopefully recoup my money and make alittle bit on the side to.

    That one of the great things about iPhones is resale value, I'll know i never get back anywhere near what i paid for the Note 4 when time comes to sell it on.
