Tell us more what your thinking.... I think it depends on the person and how much they crave the latest and greatest.

Are you talking about the US carriers "Payment" Plans or something else.

By leasing, I mean, Jump on Demand and the Jump Program. Been using the Note 4 with T-Mobile, but upgrade options seem limited, as newer phones lack the microSD and Removable Battery options. I tend to steer away from LG, and have been an active Samsung Galaxy Note series user since the very beginning. Not sure what to do now as this month, I was planning to Jump to a newer device.

For Mobile Devices, I tend to hop onto to the latest and greater, but by no means is the Note 5 the best, its considered somewhat of a downgrade. Stick Out Tongue

I think you're often better off buying a quality phone that comes unlocked and gets android updates faster.

the upcoming nexus devices you can expect in November could be a good option. That will get you on marshmallow the fastest.

The LG G series phones are better than the Galaxy S series. G3 was better than S5, and G4 is now better than S6.

And they have expandable memory and removable batteries.

An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone
