Yup, instead of just making the price lower like $600, they have to throw in a useless smart watch or impractical and awkward VR headset to entice buyers.

I will use Gear VR only in my private room. I am not like what you think and for me 64GB with 4GB of RAM is more than enough! 32GB + 128GB is too much for me. I cannot even use all the 32GB on my Note Edge. And by the way not only Gear VR is free, as I said the other option is the free Gear S2 which you can give a "show up" in public and be the envy of everyone seeing you use it! But I am not that show up guy that is why I choose Gear VR.

I'm sure Samsung is giving out the free Gear VR because it's doing so well selling Note.5s even without them, with "zero interest". Wheeee!
64 GB is still too little compared to the 32 GB+ 128 GB in using with my Note 3.
Have a good go with your Gear VR in public. I'm sure you'll be the envy of everyone seeing you use it.
How strange? most the ppl here feel content with their mobiles and dont have the note 5, yet they r against it.
I have the I phone 6 and the note 5: the Iphone is faster in single core operations but the samsung is faster in the multi core. Otherwise the note 5 is better in everything.
[deleted post]I just bought a 64GB Note 5 last night coming with free Gear VR. 64GB is more than enough for me, no need for memory expansion. Another promotional option for 32GB or 64GB is with free Gear S2 and pay it in 12month-installment with zero interest.
[deleted post]Or how about someone who went to the "launch" and acts like that's mass market. An idiot that insults someone bringing up family when the majority of phone plans are family plans.
Oh, no; let's act like ALL phone manufacturers don't make the majority of their money off of families with plans buying the same phone brands. Lol
Apple sure does.
But who wants a Note 5 when it's nothing more than an Android knockoff of an IPhone with a pen? The marketing sucks! Thats how they marketing this thing.

How strange? Most of the ppl here dont have the device but they r against it!!!!!!!
I have the i phone 6 and note 5: the i phone is only fasterand more stable but the note is better in everything else.
Y ppl consider the unremovable battery only bad in note 5, the i phones have them since the invention of the wheel!!!

I suspect both Note.5 and S6 Plus are limited to mostly 32 GB models from the surplus parts of the failed S6 series selling little - same insides, less features.
It's a confused marketing strategy where you don't sell to an entire contingent (Europe) during the first three months or so, sell only 32 GB models in MOST countries, and you end up with products that are actually LESS in features and versatility than their predecessors!
You sound like you work at Samsung (yeah, you were at the actual launching), and you just lost your hard-core customers like me with silly fragile glass back, gimmicky useless wireless charging, flawed S Pen storage design, sealed battery just puts an expiration date and give us problem to carry or plant charger/charging pad/powerbank just like iPhone users.
Why did you want us to inherit the problems of iPhone users? Gee, to cater the don't-know-don't-care consumers like iPhone users? They just want something shiny to see themselves constantly ready to take beauty shots all day. This is the market you're catering? Concentrate why the Galaxy Note was successful in the first place - versatility, reliability, and sensibility. I don't see any of those traits in your latest products anymore.
PS - It's a good idea you remain anonymous.

That's sure some great multitasking there!
As far as the rest of your drivel you spewed as some form of rebuttal, XOXO buddy ;)
note 5 may not hv a removable battery and a micro sd card. but it is the most powerful and lagless phone . beauty too. and all the uses "the neighbor " has given are useless. if u download 2gb data per day u will bcome a mobile tower. and turning into a mobile tower from a human being is no argument. i want some decent argument for note 5. note 5 is best

You and your twisted life. Please don't bring family matter in here. We are not interested. Fyi, Samsung didn't market S6 edge+ and Note5 the same way. If you haven't attend the Note5 launch or even have the decency to watch it online, please don't say a word. Samsung clearly advertise Note5 for multitasking and S6 edge+ as multimedia consumption. I was there.

"...itÂ’s been established that the data transfer speeds for the new iPhone 5 USB cable hasnÂ’t changed. It will still offer the same speeds as the old connector, which meets the performance specifications for USB 2.0".
Thankfully, I still use a Note 3 which has USB 3.0, which is 10 times more speed than a 2.0. Yes, it's an Android device.
And if you do not know what is the difference between a USB 2.0 and 3.0:
