Samsung

Some hopes and expectations for the next Galaxy Note

It's almost time for a new Samsung Galaxy Note — and it looks like this year's model could bring a few changes. It's the first time we'll see Samsung's new Galaxy S6 design language applied to a larger, stylus-equipped handset. And if the latest reports are to be believed, the Galaxy Note 5 could arrive significantly earlier than expected.

The Note line is a series of products with a unique appeal and a loyal following. The Notes are the only pen-toting phones to have sold in large numbers. They've also been showcase devices for Samsung's homegrown multitasking features, multi window and popup window.

So what's next? We'll make a few early predictions after the break, but we also want to hear from current Note users and anyone considering upgrading — what'll make the Note 5 your next Android phone?

What was once called the ACTIVE Case, the DILEX Pro has come a long way in design since it was first introduced. Seidio's refined both layers and managed to make a fairly slim cover that has many users coming back as they upgrade their devices. We took this hybrid kickstand case for a spin with the LG G4, getting a closer look at its build quality.
