I wonder who was the numb nut team member and all who signed off on that being actually implemented. Such a waste of energy producing it. Pointless in usage, as the swipe typing is so ridiculously fast that going back to even point tapping is slow.

Rodrigo Vianna, 18 Aug 2015No IR blaster: i can't see a reason to remove it. Production cost? Wtf! I don't expect a flags... moreYa man even i need the IR remote control .I also thought that samsung will give IR remote control on note5 but still do not know the reason for removing it.
All of us talking about the battery 3000 mah li-po not enough what ever iphone 6 plus had 2915 mah li-po and screen size 5.5 inch but no one complain
No IR blaster: i can't see a reason to remove it. Production cost? Wtf! I don't expect a flagship phone to have features removed just to cut cost.
I can swallow sealed battery and no SD (if base storage is 64GB - not the case).
ALL that features removed at once i just can't swallow.
jonny8835, 17 Aug 2015Galaxy Note5 battery life benchmark: Outperforms the Note 4 despite smaller battery.
Charging... moreYeah, by roughly 5%, or just 28 minutes in the more than 9 hours of use. Not a significant increase in efficiency. What's more is removable versus non-removable battery. Removable battery can give you zero charging waiting time.
I rather Samsung put in another 400mAh, and made it removable.
hello, does anyone know if the note 5 n920i come in spanish language from factory
Galaxy Note5 battery life benchmark: Outperforms the Note 4 despite smaller battery.
Charging time of Note 5 less than Note 4 also.
It's only available up to 64GB version. No 128GB version. 64GB version is like having a 32GB version with an extra 32GB. If it HAD memory expansion, you'd get another 100+GB of extra space, even with a 64GB version. That would have been cool!
Why not have so much space? Because cloud services are still terrible with terrible service speeds.
Mean time, let us consider the Note 4. Competitively, NotePOINTfive has only about 5% more battery stamina than a Note 4, N.5 has slightly bumped up processor, RAM shouldn't be such an issue, and all the goodness of that textured back, memory expansion, infrared remote, and changeable battery. N4 is now only $500 now, compared to an $800 that's mostly something shiny to show off.
That's right, Samsung. You aren't getting love from me this year!
The phone announced on 13-8-2015 & it's available in stores 17-8-2015 in Egypt now with almost the same 1st price of note 4 last year in November 2014 !!! the fastest released phone :D !!
But the question guys now,,, Does it really deserve to shift from Note 4 to Note 5 ?!
I m a galaxy note lover but with note 5, no sd card shorter battery life i never ever buy note 5 its been failure start of samsung if these kind of Android will introduce,
Equinox Hydroid, 17 Aug 2015Samsung confirmed that there's no 128 GB version :SNote 5 and s edge plus will have 128 gb also
Logan5, 17 Aug 2015Why is there a storage option of 128gb? Samsung already retracted that a 128gb would be available. They're not releasing a 128gb version yet because if people could buy the 128gb version from day 1 they won't need to upgrade their phone for a few years as they have plenty memory, but they force you to buy a smaller version then many will also buy the 128gb which means more profit for Samsung.
I read the comments here and i can see that here we have apple fans, Samsung fans and people who just blame Samsung for everything. So, something for all.
First. Why in the hell is note 4 better than note 5? You get better battery (even with less mAh), faster phone (faster CPU, faster GPU), more RAM that is going to beat note 4 in multitasking and a way better S Pen. If you go back to N3 and N4, just little things where upgraded and now all of you are saying that the N4 is the best.
Second. Apple fans, don't talk too much. iPhone doesn't have SD card slot and still all of you are buying iPhone's, but here you are attacking on Samsung because it has no sd card slot. For everyone else, you have the 128GB option. Ok, i know, maybe it is too expensive but if you like it buy it, if don't, don't talk badly for the phone.
These are the FACTS. It is up to you what you buy, but stop talking like you know everything.
