Samsung, you are heading for trouble. I don't think it will sell if the spec is similar to that of S6 n still at 5.7". I like the earlier rumoured with 5.89" screen. I was really looking forward to it. Very upsetting n disappointed the way it turn out. I guess I have to look at other model then ie. the much anticipated iPhone 6s.
Anonymous, 01 Aug 2015I have the 4gb/64gb version as work phone, it is a quality piece. I like it as much as my LG G4. Good
If I am to consider purchasing then must have the following >:
-Front firing stereo speakers
No SD?? (It's like a punch in the crotch).
At least make it waterproof then...
None of these two? NO THANKS!
You can kee keep it and shove it in your google cloud..
yes note 4 all the way then if this is true. Price of note 4 will fall after 15th August so will buy that then if this have no microsd card.
Samsung not listening to your customers.
This looks like a below average phone not a flagship.
If it is priced at 500 usd it will sell .otherwise sales will be bad.
No sd????? Bye bye Samsung. I love my note 4 with 128gb class 10 card.
same cpu, same no sd card slot, same no removable battery, same no usb type c. what's the point buying or upgrading to this? for 1gb more ram? basically, note 5 is hopeless lol

And F you Samsung. Selling my s6 with 3gb of ram that acts like it 256kb of ram this weekend. And won't be getting note5 to replace it. Hello MOTO!
No SD card and No 4K screen....No Go No Way....Will wait for 6S to come out....Done With samsung....

Its only visible in videos. But still there is a lot of ppl complaining (google it) about PWM displays making them dizzy, giving eye strain etc. So I am concerned about it, naturally.
On the other thing I do have currently Note2 and I never had any discomfort with it even using screen for long time aka browsing web.
Most likely I will switch to some LG made future phone due to that PWM thing, even I like stylus, physical hardware button on samsung device a lot.

LTE was not available in my country in 2012, but now its blooming in full glory here. Other thing Note2 dont have optical image stabilization for camera. So, yes, I'm looking for more recent model, but my main req is 2 thing: removable battery (so I can put 3rd party 6000-10000mAh battery) and sd card.
No sd, ok for now its a leak. But if its true then everyone is going to stick with the note 4 and wait for the note 6.

It still has a lot of XDA support and is running latest CM12.1, UI is smooth as butter.

At 240 Hz, it has absolutely no affect on the eyes. PWM affects eyes only when the refresh rate is 100 Hz or below. At 240 Hz, your eyes can't even see it.
PWM is necessary to provide perfect blacks. Earlier AMOLEDs had slight light leakage.
Besides, all OLED displays will flicker as the small LEDs will burn otherwise and won't be able to match the 60 Hz refresh rate of android.
Go and see the screen of Note 4, it doesn't flicker at all like in videos. Videos show those things as the refresh rate of cameras collide with refresh rate of displays. Our eyes don't have a refresh rate like a camera.
