    Interested how many do this out and about with them. Do you put the spare in your bag or in your pocket?

    I'm now going to join the club after ordering the S6 edge to go with my note 4. How do you handle both? do you use things differently to the other?

    Well I have cut back recently waiting for the Note 5. I only have 3 phones now. I carry one as my daily driver and one in my laptop bag.

    I carry 2 phones, one I use for work and the other as my personal phone. Setup is mostly the same as far as apps and games, where they differ is the accounts they sync and backup to. Currently my work phone is an iPhone 6 and my personal is a Note 4, really liking this combo, the iPhone really does a great job as my work phone while the Note is great to tinker with and when it does hiccup and lag it's not big deal since I'm not doing work stuff.

    Yeah, I have 3 upgrades right now, but am holding off on using them until the Note 5 comes out too.

    I have 4 handsets - I'm trying to cutback - but most of time only carry any one of them as my daily driver.

    I carry an iPhone 6 for work and S6 Edge for my personal device. I have an iPhone 6 holster and leave the S6E in my pocket. While not the most comfortable, it works pretty well.

    I also wear a Moto 360-- if the iPhone 6 had native AW compatibility, I would probably be able to dump it in my backpack and rely on my watch notifications instead.

    I have on occasion. I don't anymore. I'm more inclined to carry a phone and tablet or my Mac.

    One phone, a good phone, is plenty for the job.

    iphone 6+ and Note 4.

    One for girlfriend 1, the other for girlfriend 2. Both in the same pocket. I use the 6+ more as it is just generally nicer to use and hold. Both are naked as I dislike screen protectors and especially cases.

    Right now I'm carrying 3 - iPhone 6 (AT&T, primary), iPhone 6 (T-Mobile) and iPhone 5s (Verizon). They're usually in my purse but when the weather's cold and I can get away with wearing a jacket, I have them in my Scottevest.

    Work and personal phone here. At this moment, Iphone 5S work, and 6+ Personal, but my Note 4 is coming in, so that replaces the 6+. Personal goes into my left pocket and the 5S is in a work provided belt pouch.

    Sometimes I carry both in holster cases but usually not. Before, it was quite often for me to carry both to use free Wi-Fi for hours as some places have a 1-hr time limit. Now that prepaid mobile data is cheap (25 cents/30 MB/1 day, $1.10/300 MB/3 days), I don't really bother to carry both anymore. I use one for the Wi-Fi hotspot while it charges and the other to browse. Both my phones can last 9-10+ hrs on 2G/3G browsing on Opera Mini. I don't do the 4-5 phones rotation anymore. Usually 2-3 of them will rarely get used. I prefer having TWO as both my minimum and maximum limit. Even if the backup rarely gets used, I like knowing I have a good backup in case something happens to my primary.

    My new life of carrying S6 edge and note 4 going well so far. One in each pocket hasn't been an issue.

    I currently have a Note 4 and an iPhone 6+, but, come September, I will go down to just one device: either a 6S or a 6S+ (depends on features).
