Anonymous, 12 Sep 2015Actually the drop tests show that a shattered back is very likely with the GN5.Gorilla glass still will break, under any circumstance, even more with the size of the Galaxy Note.5. More surface area = more likely to break. Suffice to say, doubling the glass surface by putting glass at the back will even increase the chances for smudges, scratches and breakage by another 100%.
Samsung figured out this sales strategy with what Apple and Sony are doing - make the device fragile so there likely to increase sales or at least the costly repair. Also same goes for that sealed battery- fast charging and fast wireless charging will make the battery life shorter so you either have it replaced at a higher cost, or get a new device every year.
Another strategy they actually invented is the fiasco of getting the S Pen back in the wrong way - instant breakage of the S Pen detection sensor = more repairs = more money.
Ever wonder why Apple stopped implementing sapphire glass? They don't want eliminating glass breakage. They need that for extra profits.

MANI, 12 Sep 2015My brother using note 3. It becomes hot around the camera when he browses for for long time. I... moreAlmost Every smartphone if used for a long time gets a little heated from the back camera side, but if its heating too much then there is something wrong with it and it is suggested to send it for repair at a authorised service center.note5 has 14nm chipset which is rated to not overheat like the sd810 and 14 nm chipset it is going to b more benificial for note5 if u compair the demintions of note5 and 14nm chip ( means note5 will run more cooler than even the Galaxy s6 and the Galaxy s6 edge which has the same 14nm chipset)
Conclusion - Note5 and s6 edge plus will b the most efficiant and will run cooler even at heavy tasks than any other smartphone in the market.
PARAG B, 12 Sep 2015dude i can agree that note5 is not that big of a upgrade from note4 however ur point that the ... moreThe Note.5 will look more cheaper with a needed thick ugly protective case or shattered glass back.

Note.5 as well as the latest S series were designed as a come on for people who need a glam social accessory for acceptance. They need to use it to relate to people with iPhones who think the same way.
Gone is the direction of the Note series that's suppose to be versatile, revolutionary, reliable and filled with features.
Just tried this phone in the store! nothing new at all comparing to Note 4 only small difference & didn't like the design of the speakers area which looks like an iPhone! the back design is very bad....
Really who needs to try the note series then you have to go for NOTE 4
Note 5 is the note series failure indeed! :S
My Note 4 will wait one more year to see the Note 6
There are less Note5 hater these day. Maybe they finally buy this phone and found that it is superb. So far there is no other smartphone can compete with it.
TheNeighbor, 11 Sep 2015Perfect for a shattered glass back...No it isn't, or you wouldn't be on here trying to stop it selling.
I now realized that a lot of people that are criticizing note5 does not really own it. Buy one and you will never regret it. It's one of the best phablet in the market currently.
I bought the note 5 . If any one want to see the perfection buy the note 5 . Honestely it is a great device
Mina Fouad, 11 Sep 2015what's about heating ? it has exynos 7420, not SD810... it will heat but not that much that u make an omlette ;)
I decide to buy note 4 because of memory card and removable battery .. its not big different in specifications but big difference in price so I prefer 4 than 5 ..
