junb2007, 05 Dec 2015I am almost tempted to buy the N5 but the limited storage is preventing me. This is such a nic... moreStill, I have yet to see they coming up with tripple that battery as an option. No glass back, of course, water-resistant - like a beefed up active version. I'd go without removable battery if I am sure that I do not have to plug in from heavy usage. Yes, It'll be thick like 15mm - I want that battery, no carrying the silly powerbank only to plug it in 2-4 hours during the day.
10% increase as you suggest isn't so encouraging. What's the point of having a thin phone, only to keep carrying a power pack, or having to keep plugging it in during your waking hours? I change my battery in about 12 hours and change to fresh ones, but now I'm just waiting for two orders of double capacity (6400mAh) battery for the Note 3 and not to have to waste some under 90 seconds to change batteries in the day. I like to keep my data on all the time, and i can use up Gbs of unlimited data. Just getting my money's worth of actually downloading stuff on the go.
I want to buy a note. I'm a bit confused of which phone to buy. I only have money to buy a note 4. Is that note 5's cam is much better than note 4.( I know it's better but is it identically much better)
Should I buy a note 4 or wait untill note 5's price drop to that much. I want to know about the cam only. Please answer.

Just like the measurement you gave. Slimmer and narrower device with hollow S pen slot like Note5, how the heck you going to put a 3300mah battery in that thing? Use your brain first.
I am almost tempted to buy the N5 but the limited storage is preventing me. This is such a nice device. Hope Samsung will restore the the uSD slot and increase the battery size with N6. The A7(2016) which is smaller and thinner has a 3,300mah battery.
N5/6 153.2 x 76.1 x 7.6 mm vs 151.5 x 74.1 x 7.3 mm, N5/6_volume=1.0812*A7_2016_vol
Therefore, I expect Samsung to put 3,300mah*1.0812=3568mah on Note6, it's ok if it's non-removable as long as it's bigger capacity and with uSD. Thanks
wysiwyg, 05 Dec 2015the GN5 64GB is also ONLY available in a few countries LOL!Yeh i know :)
Note5 is a best smartphone even without the removeable battery and a card slot :) There is just no better smartphone out there rightnow. :) btw note5 64gb is available for ONLY $2000.LOL

Honestly, Note3 have better call quality and speakers. Samsung had been neglecting 'phone' department since ever. The focus these day is only on the 'smart' features. No one make calls that much anymore anyway unless you are the conservative type. Thats why they are planning to improve the speaker quality in the Galaxy S7 next year because many had complaint about it.

Being a previous owner ... moreI'm planning to upgrade my current note 4 to note 5 but I recently checked the phonearena review they mentioned two issues about low call quality & little bit low speakers comparing to the note 4... Is that true after using it ?
kevintt, 04 Dec 2015I recently purchased the Galaxy Note 5, and I am going to be honest... Being a previous owner ... moreIt's great for those who weren't using microSD cards, or those who have limited access to internet.
Wait a couple more days, and see a frequency of a hang once a week, as what's my colleague has been complaining. 32 GB is the only version my region is having - that's 26 GB or so of storage.
I recently purchased the Galaxy Note 5, and I am going to be honest... Being a previous owner of both the Note 3 and Note 4, this new device have yet to show any signs of lag, poor battery life and and performance issues. While I still have great respect for the previous versions, I must admit that the Note 5 is by far the best phone Samsung have ever made in this series. With all the negative comments about removable battery, lack of Micro SD card etc. Its a compromise I am willing to make. This phone is perfect in every single aspect from design to flawless performance, and I intent to keep it as my daily driver for a very long time.
mrlapa, 04 Dec 2015Owned all previous models of the note. LOVE IT.
WILL NOT GET THIS ONE no microsd. If the new Galaxy Note is perceived as lower than previous models, there's something wrong, right there.
Heavy users with 64 or 128 GB microSD card with previous Galaxy Notes will not settle for the pitiful 32 GB version being sold in MOST countries.
64 GB version is like just adding only a 32 GB of microSD card on top of the 32 GB internal memory for another $150. What did Samsung thought of them to do with their 128 GB microSD card? Utter silliness.
Another missed market is removable battery system, where they could have sold OEM DOUBLE or even TRIPLE extended battery instead of "portable power packs". It's going to thicken the body, but you'll not charge for DAYS for sure, instead of carrying a powerbank all the time.
Equinox Hydroid, 03 Dec 2015Does samsung returned the water sound of screen lock of note 5 as in note 3 or its a click sou... moreThere are two entirely new lockscreen animations i guess one is transparent liqued & other is colorfull liqued bubbles but they work only in swipe unlock option not in fingerprint mode. But both of them are really cool.
