Samsung is loosing market share in Africa at a very rapid rate to companies like Infinix and Tecno. I used to use to be a Samsung fan, but when Infinix launched their new Infinix Hot Note Pro (2GB RAM, 32GB ROM, 4000mAh battery that lasts two days), and for the cost of about $120, I jumped ship. Samsung needs to take heed, because good quality phones (designed in France & manufactured in China) are sweeping the market here in China and across Africa. It appears that either the Samsung local teams here in Africa are not advising the top management properly or the management team aren't listening. Samsung needs to sit up if they don't want to become obsolete like BlackBerry here.
Been patiently (and happily) waiting with my Note 3. A couple of months less wait would be just about perfect.
PoorSum, 17 Jun 2015Samsung is Dead ...BlackBerry are making android phonesHahaha! That will be the day. Blackberry is like Nokia, God rest its soul, a ghost that almost had it all but lost the plot.

PoorSum, 17 Jun 2015Samsung is Dead ...BlackBerry are making android phonesthe troll is real
Here is the thing my first smart device was apple and Now I want Android and I would consider Windows also. For Me I want the 4100 mah battery that truly lasts all day under any work load! Large screen is a must also the battery was a big deal for me but with wireless charging and rapid charge Its not the end of the world. SD Card is Important too.
1. Battery Life
2. Screen Size
3. Powerful Processor
4. SD Card not apposed to paying more for more mem on phone
5. A superior Camera!I own a dslr but I hate carrying it
6. I want it to look like a Samsung NOT a @pp!e gross lol
Samsung needs to really focus on what the people want out the the phone not how pretty and shinny they can make it. I would have bought the S6 But they never offered it in the Emerald green VZW, so now I will wait for the note
Darn. Was trying to hold out for the Note 5 but ended up buying S6 last week. No regrets though since it's the best device on the market until Note 5.
What I really want to see is a Note 5 running Windows 8.1/10 powered by Cherry Trail.

i hope they keep the micro sd slot, and ideally the battery should be removable and large with a 64gb minimum storage option, for me i travel a lot and dont often have my laptop or hard drive to transfer files and with the new 200gb and 512gb micro sd cards, i can have all my uber 2k movies and games and music collection in 1 place, i expect it to keep styling with the s6 though so this might be to much to ask....
Note 5 User, 17 Jun 2015I think that would be too much to ask as note 3 already has very thin bezels.Yes, obviously its not possible. Note 3 already has ~75% screen to body ratio, so max Samsung could do is to make it 80-82% probably, that won't be anywhere near 6" anyway. I wasn't asking by the way, I was just hoping, rather impractically.

So what *was* your experience with KitKat TW doesn't count here. I myself sold TW KK running S4 and promised I would never buy a device running TouchWiz again, and yet here I am.
Trolls will keep basing TouchWiz as it is, but no one listens to them, that's the thing they never did understand. But you are not one of them, are you?
PoorSum, 17 Jun 2015Samsung is Dead ...BlackBerry are making android phonesYes, everyone can see that.
How difficult is it to try to find a life again?
Well to be honest after Galaxy S6 series, this will be a monster of phone although that whole lot can be done better that on the Note 4 which I'm a proud owner of. Expect finger print sensor. I set my expectation high.
Sun Sand, 17 Jun 2015Does not matter if its August or September, what's important is that is has USB C port and inc... moreIt is possible to fit a 6" display if they could do some magic with the bezel. I am confident that it will be a 5.9" unit anyway, in a Note 3 like body dimensions, I will be all over it then.
Anonymous, 17 Jun 2015Yes but with a micro sd card slot and bigger better battery and cameraJust curious, if Note 5 does come out with SD card slot, removable battery and 23MP rear camera, but very pricy, would it be your cup of tea?
I only put up with Touchwiz because of the removable battery and expandable storage. If they're going to take those away it opens up a whole new world of options to me, seeing as most manufacturers are on a level playing field.
