Follow-Up on Previous “Samsung or Apple?

I have owned both Samsung and Apple phones, and like any manufactured item nothing is perfect.  Both of these phones have their good points.

Note 5After much research and consideration however, I have purchased the newly released Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and after two weeks of use I must say that I’m extremely pleased!
The 5.7 inch display is awesome and the built in stylus is something that I thought I wouldn’t use but quickly changed my mind. Really handy for making quick notes!
The big decision maker for me, since I’m an avid photographer, was the camera.  All I can say is wow!  It even features a “Pro Mode” that enables you to change ISO, F stop, EV, shutter speed, white balance, and manual focus. Other camera modes feature everything under the sun including 4K video!

I’m not downgrading the Apple 6S that will be released on 9-25, but as you may know the “S” series is always an incremental upgrade and the Galaxy Note 5 is an “All new Smartphone.”

To give you an idea of what the camera does, while writing this article I walked into our kitchen and snapped this photo.

Now it’s pretty hard to beat that for quality!  No special lighting or editing was used. (Click on larger view.) 

So if you are now or soon to be in the market for a new phone I would highly recommend the new Samsung Galaxy Note 5!
