Pretty sure he's talking about support. Apple support is US based.

Maybe so, I missed that. Don't forget that more and more corporations are moving customer service overseas in this day and age. While consumer support may be from the US today, no guarantee it will be here next year.

I felt the edge on the S6 Edge+ was weird and not tremendously helpful. I would also pick it up backward, thinking the back was the front. Minor, just saying.

With the Note 5, whatever storage you buy is what you end up with. There's no simple expansion option for it via a microSD card. But the S-Pen works significantly better than the Note 4's S-Pen

First, your English is terrible.

Second, I've had a cell phone since 1997 and a smart phone since 2005, and I have never called for support.

It's because those damn iPhones, as much as everyone touts how "they just work" are actually a big old pain in the butt when it comes right down to it.

Totally agree with you: I've never had to call Motorola (or Google) to support my phone.

The Note 5 and Edge 6+ also do not come with the 128 GB option, and the price runs about $700-800. What do you think of the changes? If you own a Samsung, would you be interested in this one? If you don't own a Samsung, would you be interested in buying one of the new Samsung models? Here's a review of the Note 5.

If I can't remove the battery, buy a custom case and put in a 2x or 3x oversize battery I am not interested.
