Samsung believes that the Note 5 will be the right choice for multitaskers, as it easily fits in one hand despite its size and comes equipped with a new and improved S Pen. On the other hand, multimedia lovers might want to look into the S6 edge+, which for all intents and purposes is a stretched out S6 edge with a big, beautiful screen and the familiar dual edges.
