Fast memory is only important for apps and you won't need that much for apps. People just used sd cards. Now? They won't use Samsung. Common sense

And probably works with the projector in my classroom... Yup, an IR blaster is pointless when you can wifi remote everything! Will try it out and tell everyone about it! Thanks for the tip!
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2015Haha. Very not sarcastic. That powerbank just an example. No need to be so narrowed-minded.No, really! That flat as heck of a power bank while as big as an 8" tablet will be so easier to carry. It'll be so obvious to see because you'll need to carry it in your hand to eco-friendly way of sharing battery power with others.
In fact, I'll get one as well and start sharing power. It's a great way to make new friends!

I usually hand mine down to less fortunate family members. In which case they only need to buy a 25 euro battery and they're happy for the next 2 years. With these new devices you're forced to throw them away.
And it won't work as a "trade-in" either since the shops also know that the battery is useless after 2 or 3 years which devalues the re-sale of these devices even further.
That Apple pull these tricks on their customers and get away with it, is fine for Apple. But I'm not an Apple customer. I expect Samsung to deliver what I want to have not what they want me to buy!
I agree with the people saying that Non-Removable battery is awful for us.
i can say that Removable battery is a long lasting phone, rather than non removable after the battery died you need to change the phone,
while the removable battery is either the phone or the bettery itself is faulty

These TV even respond to a simple Wake-on-LAN signal from a PC. The app is called TV-Sideview and is a combined EPG/remote-control. You can even program the TV to record a movie (provided you have an external HDD connected to its USB-port). It works great. You don't need that IR-blaster anymore.
Perhaps Samsung have something similar too?
Blah blah blah. Means we won't see it. Remember when there were supposed to be 32/64gb note 2's?
Samsung probably isn't getting a lot of 128gb sales, and a good good indicator is T-Mobile selling the 64 and 128 at the same price.
"AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile will carry the three storage options for both phablets."
Easy in the US. Since there are only 5 or 6 clients. Big telco's whom buy the entire manufacturer-stock and invent schemes to lure individuals into expensive subscriptions.
In Europe the situation is vastly different. There consumers usually get stuck with the cheapest 16GB or 32GB options as shops and retail-chains (not telco's) have to spread their budget across an inventory that they have to pay upfront.
"...both the Galaxy Note5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ will have a choice of 32GB/64GB/128GB storage...."
This is nice for Samsung but useless to brag about since in Europe only the 32GB will be seen. See above why. That is one o/t main reasons why many European smartphone buyers want a Micro-SD-card option. Micro-SD-cards are easily obtainable while the big-storage equipped devices are not. And IF you catch a single 64GB variant it's priced usually 2 or 3 times higher then in the US or any other market for that matter.
Needless to say that I'm truly sick of being the milk-cow for the entire world including my own greedy local government with their ridiculous taxes. :-(
To Samsung: No SD-card expansion, No buy! Unless the price difference between the models is the same as the price difference of a larger SD-card.

Have to wait for charging? Why wait when I can use my phone with powerbank while charging. I will be happy to see everyone with my powerbank. Even others are happy the fact that I have powerbank. Ever heard of "power-sharing". This is the most eco-friendly way of sharing battery power with others even with different brands of smartphone. Friends helping friends sharing powerbank.

I'll get the QWERTY keyboard too. It's so much easier for me to type than the yucky swipe keyboards input... I wish Samsung makes them for all future Galaxies!

Plus, as i pointed out, baterries not only lose capacity, but the also tend to swell, so even with a power bank it's still a temporary solution and you may have to throw out your phone in no time, or at least suffer the inconvenience of leaving it for days/weeks in the service center.
