Honest Realist, 19 Aug 2015Plastic is cheap... Samsung just made very poor design choices... not that they know anything ... moreWell it's Samsung alright
A shame really that I won't be able to upgrade thus year
Which also makes me wonder like who's the idiot designing them

Anonymous, 19 Aug 2015Nice comparison, glass is more fragile than metal. Please fire your brainAww look, an ifan, how cute.. But first, I wasn't talking to you. Second, this phone is still miles ahead from the latest iphones EVEN with a broken glass, and last one, this droptest is actually the biggest fail without them even knowing it, because by making it fall flat on its glass surfaces they just made it so irrelevant and unrealistic. Because people don't drop their phones like that machine does, people drop their phone very often with the corners hitting the floor first. That is why in EVERY other droptest that portrayed natural drops from human hands, the S6 always comes out much more superior against the drops than an iPhone 6! Got that ifan? :)

Polygon , 19 Aug 2015I like how everyone used to say about "plastic phones are cheap" So.. How are you ... morePlastic is cheap... Samsung just made very poor design choices... not that they know anything about premium design to beging with, you gotta give it to them for trying though :) it's cute.
I like how everyone used to say about "plastic phones are cheap"
So.. How are you liking your cheap glassy back phones now, fellers?

They already did restructuring last year due to Galaxy S5 failure. Doing it again is embarassing for them. Beside, the internet already done with the Note 5. Galaxy 7 rumors are coming in at full swing. Rumored to have world first holographic screen. Wait for it. Coming soon.
Against any iPhone, it's a no contest, but against the latest S and Note series, this thing, is an embarrassment!!!
Dear Samsung, please fire your CEO and his entire R n D team, it's for the good of the whole world.
Bunyip22, 18 Aug 2015Thanks Samsung but no thanks.... I'll stick with my Note 4, bigger removable battery, SD card... moreActually Note 4 Exynos is only 10% slower than Note 5.
So even if you prefer benchmark you should still buy Note 4, it's the better phone overall.
Removable batt, micro-SD, hard to break and only 10%. Oh it's a lot cheaper (than Note 5) too ... questions, question. If you ask me only an i.d.i.o.t. would buy the Note 5...
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2015I think we have all seen that battery capacity is far from the whole story. The Note 5 has ... moreYeah, The Note.5 only has a 5% battery efficiency over the Note 4, if you bothered crunching the numbers. It's not a leap, as you may like to make it sound.
Why buy a this expensive "beautiful" phone when everyone needs to protect it in a PLASTIC/TPU... case?
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2015I think we have all seen that battery capacity is far from the whole story.
The Note 5 has ... moreThey also tested the galaxy s6 with a quite good battery live but in daily use its just below average. Might be my subjective opinion as I had the xperia z3 with an quite good battery life before but 3000mah with a 5,7 screen won't be good just as 2500mah with 5,1 is not good. I didn't have a note phone since the note 1 because the size was not good for me (problems with one hand writing and stuff) but I heard that the newer note phones have a good battery life. The note 5 definitely won't. And yea, I am sure about it because it's nothing else than a big s6 and has nothing that could do miracles about its battery life
rAbieOnLy, 18 Aug 2015This ^^. I also have a Lumia 730 i dropped it several times from height of more than 2M... ev... moreI had a lumia 1520 once... First drop removed a massive chunk of polycarbonate. Second time destroyed the screen and ruined the phone. Wasn't even sad. Hated the phone passionately. Such a shame really as I genuinely enjoyed the windows phone experience.
Bunyip22, 18 Aug 2015Thanks Samsung but no thanks.... I'll stick with my Note 4, bigger removable battery, SD card... moreI think we have all seen that battery capacity is far from the whole story.
The Note 5 has better overall battery life as tested so far.
And overall it is better in every way....Except for the main three things that have us upset. Removable battery, sd slot....though for a technical reason, and ir blaster.
Everything else is better basically.
Thanks Samsung but no thanks.... I'll stick with my Note 4, bigger removable battery, SD card, grippier back and better drop resistance.... I'm sure others will prefer benchmarks, looks and a marginally better camera though.
