[deleted post]Worst is people who spend over $1000 to get it and deny all the flaws and shortcomings, tells us 32/64GB is enough, and fragile glass is the best ever.
People need to know to stay away from this half-baked crap.

Equinox Hydroid, 06 Dec 2015Really we hated note 3 because of your repeating comments and complaining from note 5 and you ... moreBecause instead of more features, Note.5 just is less and more fragile. Why would heavy users of previous Galaxy Notes ever want this?
I'm really sticking with my Note 3 for my heavy usage. And it's not that I can't afford to get it, it's WHY should I get something that does LESS. 32GB version only being sold is nothing compared to something that is about able to accommodate my 128 GB microSD card.
Considering that it comes "free" with my renewal of my service, I'm not going to waste that just because it has a fragile shiny glass back what you'd consider as "premium".
I'm not denying that the Note.5 has a great camera, good fingerprint scanner, but those aren't priority features I'm looking for. Ooh, another 6 months to see if Samsung just stops this experiment, and comes out with stuff for its real customers.
Anonymous, 05 Dec 2015You want to know what A7(2016) don't have; the Spen and bezel. Just like the measurement you g... more"Slimmer and narrower device with hollow S pen slot like Note5, how the heck you going to put a 3300mah battery in that thing" I don't want to offend anyone, but my statement is clear if A7(2016) which is smaller can have a 3300mah then it is possible to increase the battery capacity of N6(considering the it has same size as N5) which is bigger by 8.12%, we deduct the SPen volume of 2.39%. Then N6_Battery=(1.0812-0.0239)*3300mah=3490mah.
TheNeighbor, 06 Dec 2015Confirming your complaints about the hanging, especially multi-windows through colleague's use... moreYou telling me she lost a Note 3 and buy a Note5 without knowing the specs? Why didn't she just buy another Note 3. For the rest, I wonder why some of you can't stick to your old devices. No one forcing you to upgrade to Note5. Keep what you already have and stop looking for new smartphone. It seem like all of you keep looking for a new smartphone every single day. Are you guys shopaholics? Smartphone-addicted? Some of you claimed to own Note 4 or Note 3 and yet thinking about getting a Note5 but complaining that it don't have sd slot or removable battery. Sound silly enough to me. Why the complain if you can still use your old phone?
Don't buy, as N6 is definitely with sd card slot. Just wait 6months, or carry on with what you have. But mind you, be prepared with 100X10 Dollar Bills.
absolut-allen, 06 Dec 2015I get you on some points but, why does your colleague complain about memory expansion when it ... moreYup, most non-tech people will likely assume that it would have the same, if not BETTER stuff FEATURES compared to previous models. 32GB version is the only model sold where I live, although it comes with dual SIM - still utterly useless with a silly limited storage space.
TheNeighbor, 06 Dec 2015Confirming your complaints about the hanging, especially multi-windows through colleague's use... moreReally we hated note 3 because of your repeating comments and complaining from note 5 and you didn't own it at all
TheNeighbor, 06 Dec 2015Confirming your complaints about the hanging, especially multi-windows through colleague's use... moreI get you on some points but, why does your colleague complain about memory expansion when it was known about the memory before she bought the phone?
Can't complain about something you didn't research.
Confirming your complaints about the hanging, especially multi-windows through colleague's use. About once a week hanging. She ain't happy finding out that it does not have memory expansion and had to endure carrying an OTG cable with her USB flash drive. She thought it was better than the Note 3 she lost. She's regretting spending so much for something that does less.
absolut-allen, 06 Dec 2015For those who think Android M is going to give better memory management, read up on it. It's o... moreIt is Marshamallow. Stop calling it android M. Marshmallow is the official name since like for months now. Geez, update yourself please before trying to update other people.
For those who think Android M is going to give better memory management, read up on it. It's only going to give "you" better management of the RAM in your apps.
I keep hearing how it's going to be the savior of TouchWizs' horrible management.
How funny that everything is stuck on horizontal right now. Not certain areas; everything! Stemmed from only flipping the screen. Yay for almost $1,000.
Equinox Hydroid, 05 Dec 2015I'm planning to upgrade my current note 4 to note 5 but I recently checked the phonearena revi... moreSpeaker quality real isn't good... For audio and video playback... In case of call it's good
Galaxy Note5 is real enjoyable device for this year... And now one can compete with but I see lag in touch wizard and ram management still not good bt real cool 4 weeks now... Charge for more no problem but will need back covere for this device
haha. Someone rightly said here that if one is looking for a just opinion before buying a phone, one must not read users opinions like being offered here. Its hilarious, its stupid how people talk about a phone. If a phone doesn't have a radio, people would say damn it..all i wanted was a radio. If there's no user replaceable memory, people would say i would have bought this phone only if it had a user replaceable memory. People are just short of abusing each other just for a phone. lol. Actually, most of the people just share their unsought-for opinions just for the sake of it. It doesn't matter whether they own the device, like it or dislike it. They would try to dissemble no one knows phones better than them. Or they would try to prove that they have the best phone on earth. Come on guys. Its just a phone. And No phone is perfect. And guys, admit this fact that companies wont come at doorstep of each of you to ask which feature their next flagship should have...

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.
