People need to get a grip and realise removeable media has had it's day.
Grow up and move on with the technology.
I have seen comments stating that people carry round their entire media library on SD. WHY? There is NO legitimate reason to.
The specs pretty much the same as S6. If this is true it is the most half-baked devices Samsung ever made. The copy paste their own S6 onto Note 5. Show some effort Samsung. Come on.
Samsung trying to do an Apple. Flop!
Sammy making apple chips gave them the bravado to play apple's game. I hope they introduce their own usb charger (lightning-like) and bam! Sammy to shambles.
Right now the note 4 or note edge seem to best value for you money ...
Sd card , removable battery which you can upgrade or not , IR blaster which the 5 wont bring , better battery . This is in no way an upgrade . I predict this to be a flop and Samsung will try to correct with a note 5 plus or something to that effect in a couple of months.
I still hope for the best but I fear the worst will come true.
Has to be a reworked chipset because they certainly go to put more gpu performance with the same Mali T760 gpu but with more cores. I don't believe that they only go to put the Exynos 7420 Soc and increase the frequency speed of the cpu.
It seems to be all style & not much substance these days with Samsung.
They're also failing to listen to the complaints about not having a removable/replaceable battery and a micro sd slot, nor have they taken on board the lack of FM radio. Still doesn't bother me I'll look elsewhere, probably Sony or LG.
