I'm not too sure why so many people complain about Samsung having several different options, I for one think that its just merely giving us (consumers) a lot more options so its a win-win situation for us, isn't it?
Perhaps that comes down to the fact that Samsung will not support these devices in the future, but I wouldn't be surprised if they still did that even if they had fewer version.
On the other hand, I currently have the NOTE 4 and think its almost the perfect phone for me but there is a part of me that feels that its just a bit too big for everyday use. Now this is where the S6 Plus will step in, a phone that's a tad smaller than the NOTE 4 but still has plenty of screen real estate.
For my hands, the 5.5" is pretty much the ideal size (or 5.7" with very small bezels). For me, LG kind of nailed it with the G3 last year but I felt the QHd resolution was too much to handle for the SD 801. This year round I'm just not happy with the G4 having a not-so-great processor.
Therefore, I'm sure there will be enough people in the world like me who'd appreciate a phone like the S6 Plus (provided the bezels are kept under control). Alternatively, if they could add in the S-Pen and call it a NOTE 4 Mini or something, then that'd be an even sweeter deal for me.

But, I personally prefer metal backcase over leather-like one. I am hoping that Note 5 will be the first ever metal-designed Note series phone.
So this will not be Note 5?...phew...hope Note 5 will be like the one at Youm presentation...just a dream.
kamikazi, 04 Jun 2015please tell me it's not gonna be called s6 plus, please! wth Samsung can't you even think of a name?Yep, thought of I phone , but it sounded too childish and patronising.
I do think this would be the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Edge, that would be more fathomable not a Galaxy S6 Plus.
please tell me it's not gonna be called s6 plus, please! wth Samsung can't you even think of a name?
Well besides other spec, i hope 32GB will change into default 64GB(minimum) in this year like some brand already have this 64 +(!) sd slot(!).

I was about to buy S6 Edge, so it's a good news to me. No matter what You say, it's something worth considering when moving from S5.
