I figured out something by reading comments from various different websites. All of these comments seem to be repetitive and cut and paste,no removable battery or SD and I won't buy. What I figured out is about 65% of them are apple trolls attempting to discourage buyers 10% actually care about no removable battery and SD and about 25% really don't care one way or another,they just like to distance themselves from that gawd awful iPhone and I can't blame them. I know a litiny of people who own an Note; including myself and sit at airports all the time where people are using them and I have never,never,ever ever,ever seen someone whip out an battery or an SD card to change out. Doesn't mean that they haven't, just never seen it.
The way I understand it, the SD card had to go because after numerous attempts and configurations, it couldn't accommodate the phone's data speed. No sense keeping something that's hobbled.
I switched to Samsung with the Galaxy Note 3 because a lot of smart phones making the sd card slot a thing of the past. It really disappoints me that Samsung has decided to ditch an SD card slot and will most likely make me go to another brand. I am really sad because Samsung has made a pretty great product so far.
What i want to know is if that battery really is 3000mah cuz if it is, thats absolute rubbish, less than the note4 and same as g3? They planning to run a display that big and powerful with such little mah? It's like a step back from the note 4 but also 32gb should not be the lowest storage option since they got rid of sdcard slot as with pixel counts getting bigger within mobile cameras, so will the size. Video files are massive, even just a few minutes of video takes up a large amount of ur available storage. Samsung seems to only try to cater for either the rich or stupid or both with this new line
ThePhoneGuy, 11 Aug 2015Ok people no SD card slot and no removable battery does not mean the end of the world. Apple h... moreApple has icrap which is rubbish and honestly there should be no need for that. They just need an excuse to control how and what uses can put on their devices.
Richard Yarrell, 11 Aug 2015This effects nobody but yourself directly. True Samsung owners already have more than one hand... moreToo much money to burn man. I bet u won't even use them lol just hang them up or use them to show off. Must be compensating for something heh heh. Ur one of the few that seems like they would like to get their hands on this phone lol. There's much less to this phone than the previous version other than a premium price and feel so good luck with ur iphone cloned devices xD u should have just been with apple in the first place lol
I was looking forward to getting the Note 5, after reading the specs I am very disappointed. Samsung y'all went and ruined a good thing. Well honestly I need to start doing my research. I guess is LG G4. I was never a fan of LG but it has the specs I need.
Honestly i was hoping to see more once i clicked on this link but only to find so much disappointment. Sucks cuz the display really is one of the things that lures me to samsung. Too bad they ruined a what could have been good line of phones/phablet
Anonymous, 11 Aug 2015Then just by the 128G insteadHe/She meant to transfer data they need memory card. It's not a space issue.
Im sad to say.......this will be the first Note series i wont be owning. im sure its great in its own right but not changing my own battery or upgrading my own battery or memory just doesnt settle well with me. hopefully i can rejoin the Samsung family when the 6 is launched. hopefully. of course that depends on how good the phone i decide on takes off. im very loyal to my phones manufacturers. i had motorola from 1998 -2010. then joined the samsung family...till now
I was really looking forward to the note 5. After reading all the speculation and hoping it wasn't true, now this. I guess I'll stick with my note 3 that I like very much. Doesn't Samsung want to set the pace anymore!!!!
Been using Galaxy SI S2 Note 2, Note 3 and Note 4. Time to STOP. Not into Apple wanabe phones. The fixed Storage doesnt work for me, i transfer data and photos a lot using my phone and i dont want to bring my phone everywhere to do so. Also, a fixed battery means i cannot use a replacement battery and need to bring a HEAVIER battery charger around. Not workable. Switching to LG then.
Had a Galaxy S4, I was waiting for Note5 to be released. I keep phones quite awhile, no removable sd card was too much. I purchased a new Note 4 Edge last week. I'm not alone on this one Samsung!
The selling points of Samsung as compared to other brands is the that it still has removable battery option. BUT....DAMN... the recent NOTE 5 is following the footsteps of APPLE is not
pleasing. Samsung famous to have a lot of bloatwares which users cannot remove. System
hang is a norm and you need to remove battery in this case. Furthermore, rechargeable battery
can failure at any time who knows if you not handle recharging with care.
Damn Samsung it's,,,, no words for this.
I have been fan from Samsung Galaxy 1
I have buy all galaxy only for battery change and SD card sorry it's for my over with Samsung super bad really bad. Bee special, don't bee iPhone nothing special with the note 5 and the edge+ shame on you Samsung
The no SD card is a deal breaker I'm a big galaxy fan I've had all the s series phones and move to the note for the size but I won't be investing in a phone without that and I'm not the only consumer that feels this way what happened to listen to your customers!
Anonymous, 11 Aug 2015Then just by the 128G insteadBecause the 128gig version has a removable sd card right?. Lol
