We can do that too but we won't because smartphone are meant to be smart and shows us information in the most compact way as possible. What the point of having a phone that inly shows time like yours. I have a watch to do that for me.

You can't even remove all iOS icons to give you minimal interface.
With all due respect to "fast charge" tech, there's nothing like going from 0 to 100 in 4 secs. Even a first class Lamborghini doesn't.

Hipster: needs to either plug in half way during the day time, or carry a power bank all the time, having to plug in 1-2 hours - this is a common thing amoungst iPhone users who could not get their FIXED INTERNAL battery last to the evening. Does not consider practical solution Samsung did implement wonderfully: changeable extra batteries - they're thin, light and gives you 100 % power bump after changing, and takes only a minute to do it.
Hipster: Disregards micro SD cards of 32, 64 and 128GB as practical means for media on the go, frees up the internal of media that is usually static for user consumption needed like entire seasons of TV shows, audio books and gigabytes of music if data service is weak or slow.
Hipster: solution to media storage - internal 32/64GB and cloud streaming thereby increasing expenditure of said service.
Hipster: has tendency to go for material that is unusual, no matter how fragile.
Hipster: usually needs the bling factor to say he's got something shiny and gold.

That's just the only two redeeming forward features. Everything else is meh - drop this accidentally, you can have 2 glass sides broken (but then you cover the glass back anyways, and then that glass is utterly useless) - spend more on repairs.
You are actually championing the glass back? Will you at all have that uncovered to show off to people? Such a hipster factor! I know Gorilla glass. All glass have breaking points. If you're telling us it's so strong, think again - I've seen Gorilla glass of any version of it break on accidental drops. You're likely to cover it up with a casing, hence that "glass is it" silly "premium" factor that you're on about is meaningless. Yes, do take it out of the case to feel and show off how good is glass once in awhile. But I think Samsung learned to use this as a strategy of selling more by making it more fragile by increasing the probability twice with a glass back. Yeah, no more flexible glass back that actually don't break. Glass back is so yesterday, that even Sony and Apple stopped making their devices with them.
Fixed battery for you to experience battery weakening in 8 months, and therefore have it replaced with the added service fees. This will make you just wanting to get a new device every year. More sales for Samsung.
The no-memory expansion on the regular and likely to be for carrier based units is another gimmick to making you get the more expensive memory versions, make you buy that probably rare dual SIM version. It's BS.
How can you really say this is an "improvement"?
No more changeable battery for more options
No more infrared remote control (quite so useful)
No memory expansion (mega useful for the 90% of people here)
Smaller battery capacity
Yup, I call this unjustifiable complacency, that's what it is. Go get your shiny hipster bling.

I know as much as you do that their opinion deserves to be heard, including yours. And those "11%" or "minority" including myself will still supporting Samsung for whatever changes they have made. Call us fanboys, hipsters or anything you can throw at but still it won't change our perspectives by respecting what Samsung has done over the years too.
TheNeighbor, 09 Aug 2015Right... with less features than the Note 4, and more fragile as well. Dosen't make sense.Good at last u realise ur mistake however Its a metal body note5 not like note4 which only has a metal frame & a faux leather plastic back Note 5 wud have glass back cover instead which is not like a ordinary glass its also a scratchless and durable gorilla glass.which is way better than the cheap faux leather plastic material on note4 i know being cheap can b good or bad and mainly depends who u ask . But note5 is going to b way better than Note4 in every aspect .
Note 5 will have new faster chipset, new set of cam sensors 5mp for front better than note4 etc.
I saw a leaked retail box of the Galaxy Note 5 on SamMobile site. I'm pretty sure it was written "SM-N920C" on the box.
never had my phone lag with microSD. why some of you is prefer no microSDslot?(just dont use it if bothers you). it's weird some people prefer reduced feature and became happy with it.
don't install your app on microsd if you afraid getting lag. and if you mean about loading photos, android is not open full size photo instead loading thumbnail when started.
