Tcool, 18 Feb 2016Such a shame a non Note 5 user keep making trouble on this page just to get attention.Lol, we are just sharing real reviews, not the fakes on YouTube.
The Note 5 is a disappointment to me, a guy who "upgraded" from a Nexus 5 to the "almighty" Note 5. To find out it has a choppy scrolling animation. This isn't only about scrolling while browsing Facebook, I also noticed it while scrolling in games, such as Clash of Clans which doesn't need that much specs...
The device has 4 GBs of RAM and the system uses about 1.8 GB of it after an hour of usage, which is quiet... bad. At least to me.
TheNeighb0r, 18 Feb 2016Hear hear!

The GN5 was such a let down (for power users) after the awesome GN4. This site gets 10 million visitors a day and Samsung does visit and take note of the opinions.
I like the removable battery but it's not a deal breaker for me. Not having anywhere near enough storage space WAS a deal breaker.
Hopefully the GN6 has no dumb decision and we can post good thoughts and tips as we have done on the first 4 notes :-)
I wish Samsung would let us buy unlocked phones in the USA ... Because of this, I bought a phone from a cell phone/pager company on there ... checked them out really good and imei number, etc. ... 1 month later, my phone is blocked from the network because someone reported it missing ... ebay claim is pending and I'm sure I'll get my money back but it's really crappy that someone would do that. I think it was a re-sell ... samsung said it was purchased in nov and I purchased in January so ... anyway .. loooking for another Note 5. I absolutely loved it. I will get a 64gb this time though for convenience mainly. Had a 128 gb sd card that I carried on my key ring for big files but most was uploaded to google. My music file is huge and I like to wear my bluetooth beanie hat and listen to tunes. I love that Teldyne (spelling??) beanie hat .. lol What international version can I get of the Note 5 that gets 4g on straight talk ..? I had a team mobile phone before and it was fast. I switched from Apple so anything is faster ... LOL I just got too impatient to be putting up with that .. LOL Anybody know of an international version that they have working on Straight Talk .. They're a good service around here ..
when i use the dialler and type first 4 letters of the contact name. It take ages to bring it forward from phonebook. What is 4 GB ram for ??????????????only this is the problem which sucks. Rest its a great phone overall. Love it

They think we're making trouble for no reason. We're making sure Samsung is aware of the flaws - we're doing every future Galaxy Note 6 users a favor where Samsung is making better products than the big Note.5 mistake. Critique makes things better.
With at least memory expansion onboard for the next Galaxy Note, Note.5 is left in the dust with only 32GB internal for most countries. Samsung should just stop producing more Note.5, and let the remaining stock just dissapear for light users. It was a joke that they ever thought of producing devices without memory expansion in the fist place.
I can wait another 6 months for the GN6. I'll likely get myself a Zerolemon external battery case to augment the dissapointing sealed battery, and cover that fragile glass for protection. Just that it surely has that memory expansion slot for me to continue using my 128GB microSD.

64GB is more than enough for a WISE USER.
Nobody is forcing you to get Note 5 so stop abusing real Note 5 users here!
You are nothing but a second rate trying hard troll!
Tcool, 18 Feb 2016It's a fancy gimmick. It's inefficient. It's unnecessary. Unimportant.TN surely you knew that having enough storage space was unnecessary... just a gimmick... why would you want enough space to sync all your work files... or to have a few full HD tv series.... or 4K video.... or stacks of family photos.... common... why don't you just carry an otg adapter and a usb stick instead.... just dont lose or damage it.
Tcool and Paragb clearly think that because they only use their phones for games and web browsing that the rest of the users don't need more than 32/64GB of space. At the end of the day their opinions are irrelevant... what matters is the opinion of the the Samsung designers who add features that sell phones.
STOP MAKING THE DISAPPOINTING GN5 AND BRING ON THE 64GB+200GB GN6 I SAY :-) :-)

Nobody is interested to your acrobatic process of swapping the batteries.
How about the glass body? For sure it will also be in Note 6. LOL!
Tcool, 18 Feb 2016Same question goes to some of your ridiculous opinion:
If wireless charging and fast charging... moreWireless charging could be implemented for the 3 generations of Galaxy Note series before the 5. Even as "fast" where you can get full charge "in under 120 minutes", it's a pointless implementation.
It's a fancy gimmick. It's inefficient. It's unnecessary. Unimportant. Contributes to the degradation of that sealed battery with the extra heat while charging.
I can get a full charge in under 90 seconds by swapping batteries.
Taking out memory expansion was a costly, Samsung losing millions. Samsung lost thousands of sales to other Android brands that offered memory expansion.
Taking out wireless charging can't have that costly loss for Samsung.
Fast charging was already since Note 4. Heck, Note 3's micro USB 3.0 offered 900mA than the regular micro USB 2.0 with 500mA, which translates faster charging.
