The Note series was the best productivity tools.But without the SD-card,and the removable battery,it will loose its advantage.Following this ridiculous fashion (no SD card,no removable battery,just keep the phone very thin),Samsung will loose BIIIIIG MONEY...VERY bad move,Samsung...
OMG. It's not that the world's gonna end anyday just because someone posted "no SD". Apocalypse is still far away at least after the Samsung Unpacked on the 13th August. Wait for the official unveiling of the Galaxy Note 5. Then, you all can go "apocalypse" again.
A smaller screen 5.66'' & No MicroSD and removable battery makes me to look in other brands flagships

Why no SD ??? 128 GB model of Note 5 may cost a bomb !!!
Samsung - if you want to retain the existing users of Note 4, please give option of 128 GB SD card. Else, Good bye......
It's a money game. Samsung have copied Apple, but this time, in a way that will be self destructive to Samsung, as the slow sales of the otherwise nice S6 series has proven. Apple's recent products (MacBooks, iMac included) are engineered for obsolescence in a year or two, and the focus is on style over functionality, hence the new sexy but impractical MacBook has such a terrible keyboard. (Typing this on the more practical 2015 MacBook Pro 13" Retina.)
The Note (and their cameras like the NX-1) are Samsung's best no appliance products, intelligently designed, practical and mature. However, it seems Samsung are putting style OVER usefulness and neglecting the Note. The Note 4 is superb, grippy, great camera, superb stylus execution, stunning screen, microSD card slot etc etc. In fact, I would pop the card from my GoPro into the Note 4 to view the video as it was way faster than any other transfer method.
I sold my Note 4 to make way for the 5, but now, I'm going to go buy another used Note 4!
Really angry because the one flaw of the 4 was the increasing sluggishness, and the S6 type processor in the 5 would hopefully solve that.
Nitemare, 01 Aug 2015No SD. No improvement in resolution. Reduction in screen size. A BIG NO. I will stick to my No... moreWhy would you need an increase in resolution? There is no way your eyes would be able to tell the difference between 500+ ppi and like 800 ppi. It's a totally useless drain on the battery.
And smaller screen? By 0.04 inches? (assuming the 5.7 of the Note 4 isn't an estimation) That's also going to hardly be noticeable. These 2 complaints seem very nitpicky.
That said, yeah I wouldn't upgrade either if I already had the note 4, but that's because I find it a waste of money to buy the newest model each year it comes out, not because the note 5 won't be a great upgrade.
No micro sd card.... no upgrade to note 5. Very bad move sammy, very bad...

Only thing that does not make sense is why samsung then have their own 128gb microsd card released (EVO+) if you cant even put it in their flagship devices. Thats LOL for me.
