People like to moan about Samsung's 'lagging' which on a new flagship device is a load of rubbish anyway (I highly suspect some people get fake or in some cases defective units [even at a 1% defective rate there will still be a lot in the millions sold]) and to not impact on the devices performance they phased out the SD card option for cloud and larger internal memory options.

It's really a deliberate move on Samsung's part NOT to implement it at all.

Let's not critique.
Let's not be be asking for better things.
What i understand why note5 series and all the Samsung phones having USF 2.0 platform are not compatible with SD card slot.
This is the reacon currently Samsung has not put sd card slot, in my view.
Over the whole note line and year after year, samsung note was always a hit, a rocket, number 1 in benchmark, and the note 5 is just that way..perfect design, performance, camera, functions, and speed. Although i didnt like s6 that much , but i definitely liked the note 5..battery is very good, so no prb with the non removable battery, and if i need more mermory space an nfc sd card will do the work
TheNeighbor, 22 Aug 2015Galaxy A8 Dual SIM version can take 128GB micro SD card, has 16/5 MP cameras, and a damn metal... moreI figured out why they can't put sd slot. The phone is thinner than Note4. Yes, thicker than Galaxy A8 but you forgot the curved glass at the back. The curved glass make the side slimmer and thinner which give no space for the internal component. That curved sides might be hollow for all we know. The space taken by the component is smaller than first thought. They want to make a device that can be hold in one hand and trim the battery to make them thinner. Use a 14nm processor and get rid of the IR blaster to give more space for the Spen at least. Every single space in the phone is used to the fullest. Sealed battery is the final touch to make it as thin as it can be. If there is so much space left you won't be seeing the camera bump would you?

why wasting storage on music when you can just search and listen from the vast collection of web portals

Meaning, even a 64GB-model without an sd card is useless for me, while 16GB internal+SD card is just fine.
i just wanna ask,how come the 26GB is not enough for you??what did you put inside your phone??and how can i survive with a shitty dual-core and half gig of ram smartphone with 1 gb internal memory only??i wait for you to reply
It's hard for me to accept a non-removable battery for Samsung, since their batteries are not very reliable. Having removable batteries is the only consolation, since I've replaced bloated Samsung (original) batteries in several Samsung phones already. On the other hand, my wife's iPhones, though non-removable, never needed their batteries replaced. I'm afraid these new Notes will cause headaches after a year or so. Ditto with memory cards - the benefits of being able to upgrade to higher capacities and faster cards is just too much to give up. I'm probably going to try another brand while Samsung thinks this way.

A non-removable battery and a removable one is the same technology. One just hopelessly locks the battery inside, while the other gives an option of replacing it anytime with a fresh charged battery. How can removable battery be worst?
you might as well stat calling all samsungs sampples as they have gone the way of the apple

Soo plz guys dont justify the removable of sd card
Best to have removable back cover is also that when i break one or damage it badly u can replace it with a new one and phone is new again...
