I've had he flip 4 since it first came out and love it. I will wait until the Flip 6 to upgrade. Not seeing enough upgrades in the Flip 5 to justify the cost of changing from the flip 4 to flip 5, but the flip 5 does look cool. I can't imagine ever going back to a brick phone after using a Samsung flip.

"every time I see an Angels highlight it's like "Mike Trout hit three homes runs and raised his average to .528 while Shohei Ohtani did something that hasn't been done since 'Tungsten Arm' O'Doyle of the 1921 Akron Groomsmen, as the Tigers defeated the Angels 8-3".

Classic quote that continually applies.
