The Galaxy Note 5 design is rumored to be a blown up version of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. If that's true, it means that it could feature glass and metal. We're perfectly fine with that.
We've been using the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge for several months now and we've found Samsung's new design language to be pretty dependable. While there is some general wear and tear around the edges, this is typical of current flagship smartphone designs.
It'd be nice to see waterproofing or, at the very least, a water/dust resistant IP67 certification like the one found on the Galaxy S5 design. This is actually one of the Galaxy S5's biggest advantages over the Galaxy S6. We, like many others, want to be able to take our phone into rugged environments with confidence.
