I got Note 4, and I realy love this phone, for me it is perfect. Previous was S5.
For new Samsung phones like S6 and Note5, i realy hate design. It is so pore, and copy/paste from Iphone... (vomit)

Turn off your gps when u don't need it. No need for data and wifi to be on at the same time. Clear your ram. Close apps! I have a galaxy s5 soon to uprgrade and it still last all day and I'm a heavy user and the note's battery is better than mine. Your phone company gets u a new phone if it goes bad.

It is not like I h... moreAnd you can just leave the spent battery being charged in your bag with a power bank, while you can use the device - UNPLUGGED/WIRELESS. You still need some 30 minutes to charge 50%. Under 90 minutes for 100%. Yeah, I get 100% in one minute of swapping.
Another gimmick is the wireless "fast" charging. "120" minutes to charge. Again, I get 100% in one minute of swapping. 60 seconds versus 90 minutes, 60 seconds versus 120 minutes. Wow, and you don't like that 1 minute because you're too lazy to swap and rather bring powerbank/wired charger/charger pad all the time if you're a heavy user?
Why is it too difficult to get it? It's an option, more possibilities like extended batteries instead of a powerjacket case that doesn't even give another 100% power instantly. You can still carry a powerbank if you want.
This is the future of charging? More than an hour of charging and carrying accessories that's like 5 times the volume of a spare battery? Sure, it still take some 2 hours to charge that spare battery, but that happens when I'm asleep, and my Galaxy Note stays wireless and unplugged during my waking hours.

And while walking, it will be in my bag. Oh, I know you are a guy but most women do carry power pack inside their handbag and some men do wear satchel these day for your information. Some power pack even fit into a straight wallet if you haven't noticed. It is low power but more than enough to get you through the night. Its not like you are camping for a week outside.
Pls comments about the phones only...who cares if u ave power bank

Cpt. Power, 19 Oct 2015This phone is Shit. Note was great when came out. Note 1-2-3 also awesome but from note 4these... moreExactly. Normal people don't worry or know that there's only about 300 to 500 battery cycles of charging of the battery. The ability also start to decline gradually evrytime you charge. They don't even time their battery life, and just charge with the popular powerbank as often - it's a product deviced to mask that diminishing power hold over time.
Wireless/fast wireless/fast charging accelerates that the battery degregation faster than normal charging. The main point is to ruin it faster so that exactly just before a year, you'll think you need the latest device because it's now running only half the time per charge. Sammy is catching on trying to cash in, because most customers are into status with "premium" build, and amazed about charging "wireless" (NOT!).
Last year Samsung emphasized all about being always not being plugged in, unlike iPhone wall huggers. This year is about wireless (NOT) charging that you still plug in, and an official powerbank? Samsung, get your marketing straight. It's stupid.
I can even see the limited storage of Samsung selling 32GB in most countries and no memory expansion - it's for iPhone user suckers and similar status conscious people, and a ploy to just make you buy a new phone every year because "my memory is full". But yeah, that platinum gold probably is a must-have for the suckers who thought it's the fastest and it comes in this incredible color,
This phone is Shit. Note was great when came out. Note 1-2-3 also awesome but from note 4these phones get better specs but they are much worse with build in battery which cant be replaced or fixed memory. Which is big disadvantage. And theres lots more its not worth a buy.
For example if someone like me spend couple of hours playing games on phone every single day. Battery needs to be charged all the time. Or have to play with phone pluged into electricity.
With inbuild battery this phone gets crap in like 6 months. Then what???
Anonymouses, 19 Oct 2015Samsung made a power pack for Note5. It is not big and bulky.

They don't stay on my pocket. And most days I don't want to carry a bag or stuff that thing in my pocket along with my phone.
5000mAh for that will only give you a full charge, and not more. For 1/5th of that volume, I get 100% charge after 1 minute with a removable battery. So, theoretically I can carry 5 extra batteries with that same volume of the "official" power bank of the Note.5 - another 500% of power instead of just 100%.
But I only carry one extra battery for the day for my Note 3, along with my wallet for most days. No power bank, no charger, no wires and no worrying about charging and be heavy in use of even 2GB daily. And I usually get 5 to 6 hours of screen on time power charge.

It is quite thin and have fast charging. Don't you watch the new ads? This bad perception on power pack of yours is too twisted. Who have the time to open their back cover and put replaceable battery when driving or walking on the street. very inconvenient. You might drop the battery and back cover and all. Just plug in battery pack. So much easier. Take you 1 second only.
TheNeighbor, 19 Oct 2015Only the people who can actually read.They all say built in battery's is the way forward my freind,but I've never herd so much bull shy in my life,when a built in battery starts depleting after there a 2yr cycle Then What,phone is rendered useless,phone maybe in prestine condition.but try selling it when your do for an upgrade.you carnt tell em my friend CU's they don't listen, removable battery's and SD card is a MUST ! well in my case it is,second markets are always looking for those 2 features because end of day it has to be sold on as a profit,so u will always get that little bit extra cash.think you will agree with there m8ty !
