Looking to replace my current Samsung Galaxy S4 and was considering a Note 4 or 5 but not sure which one ?


In addition to the phone itself, I want something that gives me "laptop" functionality but is easy to carry around - used to have a 9 inch tablet (until it died) but even that was too big ... ok for the couch but too big to carry around in your pocket laughing


So I have narrowed it down to a Note but cannot decide between a 4 or 5 ?


Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Note 5 but this phone is only limited to 32GB if you were to source it locally. There is no micro SD.

It is much better than note 4.

Went from the S5 to Note 4 and been very happy. Have 64 sd and no issues. When changing looked at S6 (too small) Iphone Plus (no back button) and Nexus (seems some bits of Samsung bloat I would miss). Never really use pen much but had zero issues. Battery lasts up to 2 days tho I charge daily. All around happy camper. 




Edit - paired it with a Surface Pro 3 which use and yeah still have a Ipad Mini as well. But overall I do heaps on the phone and find it fine to use so would think you would be pretty happy. Not used the 5  so cant say what is "better" but if price matters the 4 would be a good call.
