Nobody would go from a big screen Note 3 to a small screen iPhone 6, and intend to switch to S6 edge less than 9 months after the i6 purchase. Create a more realistic story if you have to. Actually, just please don't pretend you have an iPhone to make people believe your opinions are neutral. We know you are a Samsung fanboy.

And samsung phones looks better than iPhones? Even a blind fanboy of samsung wont agree.
And recent flagship like S6 are blatant iPhone copies.
Even edge varients looks similar to iphones at the sides and back.
Problem with samsung is that it completely lost chinese market to apple and other chinese android OEM

You counted two drawbacks of the Note 5. One is non removable storage which might be somewhat useful for you but the fact is it makes the phone slow affecting the overall experience so the drawback is bigger than the benefits of having SD card, same goes for external battery. It's also true that Note 4 is, I won't say ugly but the least good looking Note ever, it didn't impress me and I returned back to iPhone last year. While Note 5 is the most beautiful Note ever and by sealing the battery they achieved those looks, longer lasting battery and fast charging. Here again benefits overcame the small drawback that you can keep secondary battery which no one does. Same thing made the Galaxy edge+ the most beautiful phone ever which I got to know when this beautiful girl showed up with a galaxy s6 edge and the phone grabbed my eyes more than the girl herself lol and I decided to buy it tho there were leaks about s6 edge+ so I decided to wait for a month and here we have the best phone ever more beautiful than my iPhone 6 and most powerful by performance. You can stick to your Note 4 and keep bragging it was better but the fact is Note 5 and edge + are the best phones and I'll be returning to Samsung due to them.
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2015Aren't those details only supposed to come out a year after the phone released date.when sales were good it was coming from samsung within 25 days too from samsung ;-)
Tab sales report were dropped by samsung in 2011 after they were caught misreporting its sales/sold numbers ( like they said millions of tabs shipped but in the end they sold only 150k or even less )
apple still announces initial weekend sales within a week

As far as i know samsung is yet to provide any sales or even shipped details about S6 edge.
For the record they are yet to give the sales/shipped details for note 4 too
Most ridiculous price I ever seen in smartphone world :) is it worth cause screen is bended at edges extra 200 pounds? Definitely not

For start, i dont belive that you own note 3 if you did owned one you would know that there is no need to remove battery to get to sd slot.
Sure i cant escape charging, but i can escape being tied to a wall or playing with powerbanks etc. All i need is 2nd battery and stand alone charger for them which i have. Also charging a phone while at the meeting is a no go for me since im using mhl cable for presentations.
Fast charge solution to battery problems? You will see after a year that it is quite opposite actually.
Flash drive faster than sd? Nope. Most if not all sd slots on PC are actually converted usb 2.0 ports so it doesnt make any difference really.
And yes i still think note 4 is better than note 5 for the same reasons im explaining to you for quite a while now.
And i belive you that you own iphone, after all you said it yourself that you prefer style over function and thats typical for iphone owners. Just hope that s6 edge+ fits in your skinny jeans. All the best pal.

i cant resist this, i hear all the people yelling that samsung should have listened to there customers. especially on sights like this, where you have the geeky techs in the know. heres what makes this so funny, they did , and look where it got them. go back to what these same whiners were posting about the note 4's and the S5's and youll find all the exact same people whining there too. its kind of amazing really. but back in the s5 there complaint was all about the unchanged looks , the not premium looks. its amazing samsung gave them exactly what they asked for. and now they just moved along to whine about something else. i certaintly wouldnt come back to a web sight full of whiners to make a company decision, especially after they tried to screw me over the first time , for lack of a better word. of course youll find these same names swearing they would never own the note 4 or S5 , now claiming to own a note 4 or S5 and how there so much better then the new generation. after all the note 4 , wasnt that much of an upgrade from the note 3. so i dont blame them for not listening to a bunch of whiners on a tech sight anymore.
The another real flagship from Samsung company... The real high-tech product

I swap... moreBelieve me, no one of us keeps a secondary battery, I'm a note 3 and iphone 6 user and I charge both phones and wait for the charging to finish instead of swapping battery, tho with note5 you get fast charging by charging the phone for 10 mins you can use it for 3 hours. If it's that urgent to can use power bank or can use the phone on charging, fast charging is the solution of all the battery problems not swapping batteries and no one of us really does that, either way you'll have to charge both batteries and you can't escape charging. And everyone knows SD card is the slowest option of memory, if you don't know about wireless connection that you've OTG option for directly transfering your files from your phone to any storage or pc which is better and mostly used over switching off the phone, removing cover, memory card and then inserting in card reader. I'm sure that won't be your option if you are really a power and high end user. And about people around me no one ever took out my memory card even but theres possibility in case, and that's not good for a super secure phone with fingerprint Sensor and Knox. It should be completed secucad.

And belive me im well able to afford one since new without contract cost barerly more than my weekly wage. It is not avilable in europe however but that doesnt bother me at all since i have better one - note 4.
Note 5 might have better hardware and software but that wont save me more than 30 seconds of my day. Swappable battery and sd slot on the other hand will save me much more time.
jesse.clark, 19 Aug 2015Haha seriously in what sense Note 5 isn't better than note 4 in functionality, reliability and... moreFunctionality - i have note 4, you have note 5. Battery goes down to 5% what do you do? I swap battery and have 100% in about a minute. All hassle free.
Reliability - after certain time battery will start loosing its performance. What do you do? I just buy new battery and go with my stuff as usuall.
Productivity - lets say that you have transfer few large files onto your phone but also you have to go for a meeting where you will use your phone what do you do? I remove sd card stick it in to my laptop and start file transfer and off i go to the meeting.
Nobody ever tried to steal my sd card from my phone so not sure what people do you have around yourself but i would suggest to find better pack of mates than current one.
New spen features are cool thats a fact, but that would be +1 point on scale. Lack of removable battery and sd slot is about -10 points so it doesnt level up.

With more powerful processor and fast memory it certainly have better functionality and performance.. With the removal of external storage and better security features it's more reliable than ever because no one just can't swap out your memory card to get access to your data. And the whole new s-pen features it takes it's productivity to next level, go and check out the new tricks my favorite is taking notes without unlocking the phone. Put your hand on your heart and say it's not the best phone and you won't like to buy it if you can afford it. Well right as I'm concerned about style, I'll go for the S6 edge+.
