    I purchased the Samsung Note 4 last year instead of getting an iPhone 6. In my opinion and from my experience the Note 4 was the worst phone I ever owned.

    From poor battery performance to a phone that reset on its own several times a day there were many aggravating things about it. Slow lag in dialing calls and poor speaker phone quality made me wonder if it was my phone carrier.

    Black Friday I had enough and ordered a iPhone 6s. Wow, what a difference. It wasn’t the carrier it was a poor phone. The iPhone just works and is fast and sounds much better. There are some things I’ll miss about the Note 4 but the stylus and Google handwriting is not worth the troubles I had with the worst cell, smart phone I’ve ever owned!
