    Great comparison and I’m willing to wait a couple of weeks and pay the Xtra $10.00 for the superior phone. Been using the Note 3 for the last 3yrs and been very satisfied. However, can’t wait for the Note 6 Edge to come out. Been with VZW and a DTV customer since 2003. The only other comparison I need now is AT&T vs VZW. Like to get feedback from those that have done the comparison and what you’ve decided. LimoNick.
