Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ officially launch in the US today
While a few carriers such as T-Mobile and Verizon got the jump on Note 5 and Edge+ sales by skipping pre-orders and starting early, for a number of carriers today is the official launch day for Samsung’s latest flagship devices.
The Note 5 sees a dramatic departure from the Note series of the past. Not only does the latest Note follow suit with the Galaxy S6’s decision to drop microSD and removable battery support, the Note 5 is also the first member of the series that doesn’t significantly upgrade the design, processor, or some other major component when compared to the Galaxy S series. In short, the Note 5 is basically a blown up Galaxy S6 with S-Pen stylus support. Whether that’s a positive or a negative comes down largely to personal preference.

As for the Galaxy S6 Edge+? The only real difference between it and the standard Galaxy S6 Edge is the extra inches of screen space and a few new software features, though many of those software enhancements are actually starting to roll out to the original Edge as well.
Both handsets might borrow a lot from the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but they are still very attractive, very powerful, and certainly worthy of your consideration. If you plan on picking up the Note 5, here’s just a few places that have it on offer, to help get you started:
