Swipepad looks to be an app that I can get in the Playstore. Aftermarket apps aren't phone features. The features built in this phone are broken.

With SwipePad, I can I can swipe to contact shortcuts and app launches with up to 42 icons PER trigger set, triggered from 9 different corners or sides, anytime and anywhere I need to. Far cry than with the S Pen Air Command. Don't get me wrong - I love the S Pen for drawing and jotting notes.

There are a few areas where you can hover your pen over like say a url link and it'll show a preview. All in all a very generic, doesn't work in most apps. There is also a nice delay when you do hover over a link. I've done it in messaging without much success. Some links previewed while others didn't.
Not sure how you're going to win over IPhone users by building a generic android version of it, that's only features separating it are buggy as hell and not that useful?

Noticed how Samsung is still making commercials trying to belittle the iPhone to hopefully attract their users. Why?
IPhone users are a "different market!" Why obsess over their buyers to the point where you sabotage your own market?
Samsung should have catered to its own sector of buyers by giving them the thing that makes its phones different. You had the SD Card, IR Blaster, removable battery, S-Pen, awesome Super Amoled screen. THAT'S what attracted their market.
The geniuses at Samsung decided to try to be more like the iPhone instead of tweaking their own phones for their market. So I have an expensive iPhone wannabe with an S-Pen and a ton of bugs. If this is some brilliant way of enticing users of iPhone, instead of focusing on your own buyers; someone didn't learn anything from their marketing 101 class.
Samsung chip work and technology is good only on paper
TheNeighbor, 07 Oct 2015I download a lot of media, and that 128GB of micro SD card storage where I can use 120GB of it... moreI'm another one... i have 60GB of mapping data for work and recreation.... Cloud data simply doesn't work for this amount of data (or even have coverage in the Australian outback). On top of this I also have a a lot of movies, music, videos, TV shows, photos etc. I don't want a 32GB phone where i need to remove a movie each time i wan't to add another one.
32GB only GN5 in Australia is about the dumbest move i have seen Samsung make.

Only the underpowered users are telling us that the Note.5 is perfect - 32GB version is the only model in most countries.
well if there should be a note 6 on the horizon then unless they put back removable battery or SD card then I'm sticking with my note 3,I have no computer and my 90 full length films and family pics plus apps are on my SD card.my phone is lag free CU's there's 90%memory left.so I don't care if ppl say its the way forward none removable battery and no SD card.you must must be Kidding shortly.its going backwards shortly !
Note 5 is note 5, there is no comparision.
(same is true about iphone also)
Hahaha, thats it, dont compare
Without the SD slot, I'll be looking else where.
The non removable battery I can live with, but no SD slot, Cheers
absolut-allen, 07 Oct 2015Would have been nice to use an x86 processor to be more compatible with what Windows is known ... moreYeah, not the Surface smartphone we had in mind. I would have love to see an active digitizer pen to bring in the heat to Samsung - would have ordered it right away.
TheNeighbor, 07 Oct 2015Windows 10, micro SD slot, removable battery seem to be top on my list.Would have been nice to use an x86 processor to be more compatible with what Windows is known for. Using an old ARM processor thats known to be an oven (even with a heat spreader) isn't what I was expecting. I thought Microsoft would finally differentiate themselves from the pack. With their lack of apps, this isn't anything better than what's out there now. Not even close.
absolut-allen, 07 Oct 2015So what is it that Lumina does that the Note 5 can't? Windows 10, micro SD slot, removable battery seem to be top on my list.
