Looks absolutely gorgeous !!! A little concerned with the size of the battery but I'm definitely getting the note 5, possibly considering the edge + .
Ahmed Hadi, 05 Aug 2015Well, opinions differ. I find it interesting. How so, why should I have to push upwards at the bottom of the phone to release the s-pen "now you have to certainly hold the phone with the other hand to release the s-pen" it is so much easier to just slide it out like I do on my Note 4.
Anonymous, 05 Aug 2015The rumors said no ir blaster also. 1. No slot 2. No rem batt 3. No ir. But thats all ... moreActually the picture of the top of the device shows a microphone AND a very small IR blaster further away... it is more likely to be an IR than another mic on top... specially when the IR blaster on the S4 Mini is about the same size.... no need to be a huge black patch

JF69, 05 Aug 2015The click to release s-pen is idiotic if your ask me. Well, opinions differ. I find it interesting.
Don't care about the removable battery I never changed battery for my samsung, No SD slot is an issue as I like more memory on device, and is it water proof I really want note 5 to be waterproof, its so annoying when I can't use my note 4 outside when its raining. it rains a lot here.
saad, 05 Aug 2015please don't make it like i phone i don't prefer non removable battery and no SD card .its bec... moreIt doesn't have an SD slot just like an iphone, It doesn't have removable battery just like an iphone, it doesn't have IR blaster just like an iphone and the headphones jack is on the bottom just like an iphone too lol and note 4 had all those stuff that note 5 lacks. So basically apart from specs and the S pen, Note 5 is just like an iPhone externally.
The Galaxy Note 5 has one thing going for it.. and it's the design. Relatively thin, glass and aluminum sandwich which looks great. Not so good for durability but it sure is a looker. With that being said i believe that a lot of Note 4 users will be disappointed with the new direction Samsung is taking. The Note line mostly appealed to power users, and with no SD Card, no IR blaster, or removable battery a lot of users are going to look for an alternative.
I myself let go of the Note 4 recently and picked up an LG G4 and let me tell you it's the best decision i've ever made. I've had issues with AMOLED screens in the past, they don't seem to age very well. So i sold it before i started seeing any issues..
The LG G4 still offers a removable battery, has an IR blaster, Micro SD expansion, and has that gorgeous QHD IPS display that i love. The compactness and camera are what really got me to invest in this device. It has a 5.5 inch screen but sure doesn't feel like it, and the camera with an amazing manual mode is great for someone that wants to get the most out of their smartphone camera.
Goodbye Note line.. it was a good run..
please don't make it like i phone i don't prefer non removable battery and no SD card .its become exactly like i phone
compact design. It's nice . . Removable battery is a meaningless for me. .
TheNeighbor, 05 Aug 201530,000mAh that charges in 6 hours... Wow, you must use a very high amperage charger, or you ha... moreYeah obviously, for Charging 30A battery you need 5V-6A charger to charge it in 6 hours.
And it is nearly imbossible for a battery, it explodes like hell when it got too hot.
With regular chargers it takes almost a day :)
30A (30000 mAH) means = 30 x 5= 150 watt.
Real capacity of these fake batteries appr. 1 of 10 thus, it must be 2800-3000 mAH
So basically confirming the no SD Card slot... It's like Samsung don't care about their customers anymore.
Last year apple starts to attract samsung users by iphone 6 plus for phablets lovers & they succsseeded indeed! And samsung this year is trying to attract iphone users by s6 & note 5 by using same design & removing sd card & built in battery & high prices but will loose alot this year just low profits!! Samsung must make its own desgns & options & satisfy all customers not to attract iphone users only!!!!!! Now may ne i have to keep on my note 4 or to another sony devices or the new Huawei mate 8!
much waited features for note 5 are
- IP67/68 certification= dust and water proof.
- fast fingerprint reader = touch open(s6,apple)/ instead of slide(note4)
- sealed back=non removable battery and sd card.
- f1.9 camera = life like bright picture
- s-health upgrade= may good if had blood pressure monitor
- metal and glass finish= for rich feel
- samsung fit gear in the box.= :) free gifts
- Even 2gb ram is enough if smartphone has good processor like snapdragon 805,810 x64bit
-curved screen is only for style/show. no use in daily life.
so...what you want to say about note 5 .... /// ???
