Maybe you should grow up and write seriously about it too. But once you're going to say something about a PERSON, you should keep your bullshit to yourself.
Very nice phone,but not to have sd card is strange atleast?...i wouldn't buy it only for that reason

The recipe is simple, keep the same phone, just put an SD card, IR, removable battery and call it Note 6.
They should make a special edition with removable battery and a microSD port to sell it in Europe.
Note 5 is already in sale in Europe...is avaible on some stores for quite a while...in Romania you cad find it on emag for example...now i don't know if that means doesn't suport some LTE bands because is imported without the suport from Samsung.
I am from Romania, the phone is alredy on sale in our country, 800 euros for the 32GB model.
fruitcake, 04 Dec 2015Why?Samsung did not sell the Note 5 in Europe seems totally odd,but with the Galaxy S7 Edge mo... morethis is my thinking as well, but im not sure why they would start selling this device thru europe in Jan when the S7 is due in feb according to reports of course which could be false, even still, i think samsung may have seen the sales impact by not releasing in europe which in my opinion was a very odd move, to not offer a very popular (Previous versions) handset to a continent with a population close to 800 million people seems rediculous, im sure they will have to price it carefully as well because it will be 4 months ish old by the time it hits stores so it should be MUCH cheaper then it would have potentially been on release, i bought mine on import from Hong kong on release day, and with shipping and taxes to the uk it was £520/$785 for 32gb and was UK spec, plugs etc with vanilla software.
The 32gb version is ridiculous and a no go, if you're coming from the note 4 as I did.
I lieve in Brazil though, and my note 4 got robbed, which is pretty common in Brazil.
Now I'm in California and bought a note 5 64gb to meyself.
I was one of the guys bashing the note 5 for the lack of sdcard. Not anymore.
The phone and the storage is SO MUCH FASTER than on note 4, that it's actually a much bigger improvement on note4 than I could have imagined, mainly in user experience.
I felt a much bigger upgrade than what a felt from the note 3 to the note 4.
An prior to having and using it, I would NEVER tell that by only looking the specs.
The camera opens SO FAST, has the interface ready when you open it, switch to pro mode, witch is great... the stylus working on the locking screen is zippy fast. You never miss a note like I used to on other notes...

Anonymous, 04 Dec 2015If you look at that list it does not support LTE band 20. That means that in the UK it will on... morethat is true, o2 are terrible with supported bands as they only do band 20 (they are the worst in the uk).
All others would be fine that dont piggy back o2 (tesco and giffgaff).
Although it didnt stop o2 selling the iphone 5 though, and that didnt support 4g on band 20.. .

You think they can recklessly sell those to Europe? You think it would work in Europe? Each country have specific model number. Samsung can't just randomly sells any model to any country. Certain model cannot work in Europe. There is also cdma only model used in US. Do your research first before making stupid comment like a kid that knows nothing.
Why?Samsung did not sell the Note 5 in Europe seems totally odd,but with the Galaxy S7 Edge models with the Micro Sd Card slot,then people might not be interested in the Note 5 if its more expensive than the Galaxy S7 edge models as well
They probably manufactured loads of them, then didnt sell them anywhere near what they thought they would.... so now they are looking to offload some on the places they said they wont sell them.
Very interested to see the price.. if its full price as new, or reduced to match what you can get s6/edges for.
gcristian, 04 Dec 2015Well ... this is a fail dear Samsung. Note 5 was available in stores in Romania since early S... moreYou said it yourself. Samsung will not end. Note5 may flop but Note 4 are selling like hot cakes. That is the plus side from Samsung. They are doing very well at selling older model compare to other brands. What other brand can sell oldet model as good as Samsung? I doubt there is any.
