[deleted post]I love the USB OTG feature on my note 4 for transferring files BUT it simply isn't a substitute for a micro SD card.
You can't comfortably watch a movie with an adapter and USB stick plugged into your phone.
I have had 5 Samsungs in a row now (S2 and all the Notes) but it looks like Samsung is starting to take their customers for fools (much like apple). Less features for more money.
I simply won't buy a Note 5 without an external battery and micro sd card.

Apple was the first to bring their touch based fingerprint scanner to phones. And you know what, the implementation was excellent and hassle free. It wasn't like the swipe to unlock bullshit in the atrix or gs5. I ask you this, why didn't Samsung have a touch based fingerprint scanner in the first place? Why did they even bother with a swipe based one? Because they're a joke of a company that thrives off theft as it was with the first Galaxy S to today's GS6
The names/trademarks of iPhone, iPad, and iOS were absolutely unheard of as in no one was talking about them, knew, or even cared about what these things were until apple put a product behind these names.
The difference between Apple and Samsung in terms of copying is one takes things that fits into its design language, the other one looks at who's number one and makes sure to take notes. One legitimately leads and the other follows. In this sense Samsung is a leech, a parasite, thriving off of someone else's legitimate work. Now that is infuriating.
We know Samsung's design language, look at the GS3, GS4, and GS5. Look at touchwizz. That is bonafide Samsung, and it's mediocre and disgusting. The shame of all android. They are, first and foremost, not designers. What they do well is make good hardware components, that is all.
Likewise, people who support this shit are disgusting. But that's just the way the world is, lots of terrible people sprinkled in with some truly decent ones.
Reaper.s1000rr, 15 Mar 2015Fandroids have excuses for everything. Face it, the camera bump is ugly.just because you know something new from apple products, it doesn't mean apple is the inventor...
I think the S5 is better. Samsung really dropped the ball with the 6. My 5 is waterproof, has a bad ass camera, a removable battery and an SD card. The 6 is just an iPhone.
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2015The iphone camera sensor is smaller and lacking OIS so even slightly more smaller.
And is p... moreWhat exactly is the metal used in the phone? If it was aluminum, I'm sure Samsung would proudly say so. If it was steel, I'm sure Samsung would proudly say so. If it was 50% stronger than an iPhones aluminium frame I'm positive Samsung would boast about it.
No, I bet it's some tin, zinc or copper alloy with a painted on "brushed aluminum" finish.
Samsung missed the mark on these phones, should have stuck with the features that made the Galaxy phones popular and just upgraded to a higher quality of plastic.
Reaper.s1000rr, 15 Mar 2015Is no one going to mention the fact that the bottom is a rip off of the iphone? Why cant Samsu... moreIt only looks similar because the speaker and headphone jack are on the bottom.
And because the frame and design apple copied from Samsung like the note 1 and ativ.
And the speaker grill is designed more like lenovos.
Should they have put the headset and speaker on the side? Or used square speaker holes?
Or use a triangle shaped frame?
And Samsung be original in reference to apple??? Lol.
Apple who stole the names iPhone, iOS, and iPad? Who copied the Samsung SGH-Z610 and LG Prada for design? And biya everyone's parts for their device? And uses all thought of tech.....how original indeed
Reaper.s1000rr, 15 Mar 2015Fandroids have excuses for everything. Face it, the camera bump is ugly.Ithings have a denial and side track to everything.
Did I say I care how you think it looks or that people have to like it? Nope. You can think its ugly if you want. That is just side tracking from the facts I just pointed out. Without moving the camera or making the S6 a lot thicker there will be a hump.
For the iphone there is no reason or excuse
Is no one going to mention the fact that the bottom is a rip off of the iphone? Why cant Samsung be original?
As usual from the comments, it's like Samsung is immune to criticism.
MrGenie, 14 Mar 2015does anyone know whats the break down on the storage.. in my note2 it was said it has 16GB of ... more..don't worry about your storage. Go for an OTG (on the go dual USB-storage stick, like from Scandisk, approx. $30 US for 32 GB).
Don't understand whats makes people so hard up on storage
Last year, bought my wife the S5 (very happy, as a matter of fact: "promise, this will last for a looong time)".
Now, a bit more than a year has passed and as soon as she saw the GS6 *edge*, she told me, she dreamed about it. Ok, this time, this one will last a loooong time (?????)
She gives horsesh*t about removable battery, sd-card, etc, but definitely appreciates a set as good as the GS6 *edge*.
The only good thing about this mobile is it will push done the price of the S5. And already the S4 is a bargain. Still have not address the security issues of Android. Perhaps that that is why they Samsung will use BB software.
The fact about this whole thing is that people would always complain. Add all the features and the perfect sign, they will still complain. Human wants are insatiable. The naked truth is that most of them wouldn't still buy it even if it had all the specs and best design.
Samsung knows who they targeted and those who are willing to buy would buy it.
I'm buying the edge.
luckiest charm, 14 Mar 20152K is not 1080p. Its native cinema 4:3 2048 x 1080 resolution, while 1080p displays are simply FHD.1.9k. There you go.

An Amazing review of the phone, let me just congratulate to the person that write this down, amazing work.

Oh because they thought it would sell more means it's a fall even though it still sold very well and offered more than most other devices....
Copied the finger print scanner? You mean the thing apple copied in the first place that existed on other phones up to 10 ish years prior?
How about how apple stole the names iphone, ipad, and ios?
Or copied the Samsung SGH-Z610 and LG Prada for design?
Does that mean every phone in the world copies Samsung for playing and recording HD content?
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2015Ok so until now u needed a screen protector and with this phone you need 2, also think about d... moreThe iphone camera sensor is smaller and lacking OIS so even slightly more smaller.
And is placed in the top corner above the display being able to use majority of the whole thickness of the device.
The Galaxy's camera sensor is larger and has OIS and is in a thinner body where it sits behind the display like it always has...
There is no excuse or even reason the Iphone's protrudes. Sony's is also a much larger sensor and sits in the same place and is flush enough.
And the metal used in the Galaxy is 50% stronger. And I don't think it's using Gorilla Glass 4. And since when was cheap bendable aluminum more durable?
And what does it have different looking from the iphone??? Hm...The front, back, colors, frame.....As for the similar looking shape and design why did the Iphone copy it?
