I 'upgraded' to the Note 4 after almost 4 loyal years with the S5 & it is working well. I'm just not ready to face a world without removable batteries in their smartphones.
Still rockin' my Note 4. Got the n910w8 variant which supports LTE on both AT&T and T-Mobile. Bought it second hand for cheap, rooted with TWRP and running Resurrection Remix 8.1 ROM. Phone is still plenty fast, and I am more than happy with the performance. Plus it has removable battery, 3.5mm headphone jack and SD card support. Go ahead and spend your rent on a new shiny flagship if you want to (if it makes you happy, go for it). As for me, I like my money in my bank account. Just sayin'.
Problems experienced with Galaxy Samsung Note 4:-
If I close phone screen before phone clears from display, the phone redials number I just called.
Icons spontaneously move around from one screen to another or disappear to apps pages.
Runs hot. So flattens battery too fast. Even after closing apps. Drains super large battery in less than a day.
Slow to pick up network after it's lost signal when comes it back into signal.
Notifications spontaneously turn off in settings
Home screen spontaneously changes to a different one of the 5 screens
Spontaneously dials numbers in phone book
Spontaneously creates random characters to text random people in contacts
Kies doesn't work with Mac
Sound quality poor. People I call often miss words I say. Speaker phone/microphone very poor sound quality
OK so could be a virus or a bad phone?
Reformatting doesn't solve
And guess what. Phone got broken.
So got another Note 4 on insurance and exactly the same things are starting to happen.
My conclusion = the Galaxy Note 4 has great camera & screen, but is appallingly bad in every other way.
Never going to buy another Samsung product in my life

Specwise a 2014 Flagship Phone from 5 years ago is mostlikely outclassed nowadays by a midranger/low-mid latest SoC with faster Clockspeed/RAM/UFS Storage.

sad to see that last security patch available is aug 2017....Not suprising considering its a 2014 flagship phone and major manufacturers only does 2 years of OS Upgrades and upto 3 years Security Updates. Atleast it still seems to be getting Kernel Bugfixes/Updates, else just go full custom firmware if you want the latest Android Version/Security though only common for the Snapdragon Version and very rare for the Exynos.
Also if you are into IR BLASTER, Exynos is Buggy or does not work compared to the Snapdragon one.
In my Samsung Note 4 SM-910G phone, there is 11 GB free space out of 25 GB (+ 7 GB reserved for OS). Still all app update installation takes more time compared to my Samsung A9 pro. Really frustrated on my Note 4.

Camera is awesome and can record 4K videos perfectly.
but if you are looking for latest version of Android then forget it.
I am still using this phone without any issues except for the duplicate battery with OEM Samsung Powerbank.

Great phone. Had 3 of them.
The OEM battery is pure junk. Even new, it's 4-5 years old and will not last more than a few hours. Just save the frustration and immediately remove it. Buy an extended aftermarket battery such as ZeroLemon 10,000 or a smaller one. I love ZeroLemon and gets great runtime with it and the phone is thicker and easier to hold.
Flat screen, 16:9 ratio, QHD, very nice vibrant colors.
