UFS 2.0 incompatible with a micro SD? Then why the heck can you use an OTG dongle?

Tough choices. Have to wait until IFA first to see what they have to offer. Must have patience for the next 2 weeks. Pheww.
Is the note 5 under specked and hence a disaster at launch ????
i think yes
all who agree say aye.
Anonymous, 22 Aug 2015Wait. Galaxy A8 have metal back? Are you serious?That's right, folks - A8 has a metal back that's more sturdy than the glass that shatters at the back of a Note.5.
It even has the 16/5 MP cameras!
Alan Parker, 22 Aug 2015Maybe you're happy to be a sheep taking whatever phone you're given but you are exactly the so... moreOf course there are some complacent persons who would not mind paying for something that actually does less. Samsung really is capable in putting in a memory slot at least. Interestingly, there's a new A8 5.9mm thick (bling-bling alert!), and takes in up to 128GB micro SD card! Yes, a micro SD! Have a look:
Sure, it has only a 1080p 5.7", Snapdragon 615 processor. It's currently $560 and even have a slightly higher battery. It even has an FM radio! Unlike the Note.5, it has a total metal back - isn't that MORE "premium" (cough).
The main point is, how come the A8 has these better less fragile construction than a more expensive flagship? Samsung easily could have added these.
You are actually having and allowing compromises with the more expensive S Pen-capable Note.5. You are getting less features for $200+ more. Has it come to the lower models are actually even better? And if we are arguing about the processors, would milliseconds differences would kill you?
FlappyArnie, 22 Aug 2015even my BB LEAP is faster than Note 5.. hahahahah... camera on Note5 is really good tho.. but ... moreOh, great. We have enough Apple fans here, no thank you. We don't need another Fruit to argue about Note5. You BB just go away. You are even lower than Apple or Microsoft.

Ethan, 22 Aug 2015It doesn't have an FM radio. Sounds weird? It may. But still, it's a deal-breaker for me. I'... moreIt does have an FM tuner just like every Previous Note & Galaxy S but Samsung refuses to activate the FM chip because cell providers want to force people to spend money streaming music over 4G.
atemlos schiller, 22 Aug 2015Samsung galaxy note 5 design s good nice corner to corner 5.7 inch display.. specification is ... moreNote 4 endurance rating 90hrs vs Note 5 85hrs and after several months it will be less. Poor Note 5,
when comparing this device t my current note edge they are extremely similar in comparison.
i'd take the note edge on top as still has replacable battery and able to hav expandable meory plus your nifty edge screen which aint to nifty most times.
id would love htis device even more if it was able to ahve the expandable memory to use but 4GB RAm would help with multi app tasking on the device.

eu, 21 Aug 2015Same problem. I'm gonna buy note 4. note 5 sucks!!!
no sd card
no water resistant
no ir blaster

Samsung galaxy note 5 design s good nice corner to corner 5.7 inch display.. specification is wonderful.. 3000 mAh battery its less than galaxy note 4 220 mAh but amazingly the battery timing is almost same result.. Samsung done Great job!! Non removable battery doesn,t matter no expendable storage doesn,t matter!!
Wow 4gb ram, mutitasking better than note4
better design again better than note4
New spen better than note4
16mp & 5mp cams better than note4
New 3000mah better than note4 battery
64gb internal Fast memory better than note4.
Fast 14nm chipset better than note4
Etc etc better than note4 lol.
The above points are applicable for almost 99% Smartphone users in the world and are not for few OVERSMART TROLLS here.
Note4 does not stand any chance against The Mighty NOTE5 lol
Note for haters- Always Remember note4 was also made by Samsung but it has got old now..lol
FlappyArnie, 22 Aug 2015even my BB LEAP is faster than Note 5.. hahahahah... camera on Note5 is really good tho.. but ... moreCompairing bb to android is like compairing apple & oranges lol..btw NOTE5 has everything better than ur bb leap lol.
even my BB LEAP is faster than Note 5.. hahahahah... camera on Note5 is really good tho.. but LEAP is enough for my instagram...
No matter what Samsung do all Samsung phone lags after a month of usage, what the use of above spec. Shame still can't fix this minor problem. After using note 1,2,3, s3, s4,s5 & mega 6.3 I stop using Samsung boring ui and lags super expensive when compared to nowadays phones no point to pay twice to three times price.
1) HEAVIER (metal and glass) (Note 3 is lighter)
2) LIMITED BATTERY (infinite replaceable battery with Note 3)
3) VERY LIMITED STORAGE (Infinite storage with Note 3, currently 160GB a time)
SO WHY WOULD ANY NOTE USER want to DOWNGRADE?
Surely if a person wants a HEAVY, LIMITED, LOW-TECH useless brick product they could have always bought a useless iphone product?
