Honest Realist, 31 Aug 2015ok ok ok, Android is the BMW, iPhone remains the Ferrari. Same principal still applies!If you are comparing i Phone to Ferrari in this analogy then you are suggesting the iPhone is expensive, fast and powerful. Two of those things only apply when you compare it to.. other iPhones. I do lime the iPhone 6 and 6plus though, so it might be better to say the i Phone is Audi, and the Galaxy S6 is a Lexus.. tries very hard to beat the premium German brand (and technically succeeds in most areas) but it's still not got the image quite there.
Honest Realist, 31 Aug 2015ok ok ok, Android is the BMW, iPhone remains the Ferrari. Same principal still applies!Realistically, people would go for device that offers freedom. Safety or not, that is what living all about. You've got to take the risk. Life is more fun that way. Iphone is not true living, that is just not dying.

Yes they lock you into the eco system. BUT IT IS THE BEST ECO SYSTEM IN EXISTENCE. Some prefer the luxery and safety of a Gold & diamond prison over the freedom of living in a android shack made of crap. Easiest way of understanding Apple users is to remember we can afford to live in this high maintenence prison. The prison treats us well. Yes they charge us, but we can afford it. Here's an analogy. A Ferrari and a Toyota both get you from point A to Point B... One is high cost and can only be serviced at Ferrari, the other gives you more freedom, you can add your own turbo charger, change your own wheels and service it at any tom dick and harry... But the Ferrari owner? Doesnt care that you have all this freedom. Why? He enjoys every single trip. even though it costs him more gas etc

Android makes it's numbers on the 3rd world countries with their huge populations who simply cant afford any better. Samsung better care about the premium market considering they need it so badly to bring in revenue.
Samsung doesn't care about the 5% of Android geeks who are voting down the Note5/S6edge+ because they know that this is what the general public want. People have been nagging for years for Samsung to ditch plastic and go this design direction, and now they finally have. The Note5 is selling better than the 4 already.
I'm another long time Note owener (all 4) who isn't excited by the GN5 at all.... NOT HOT sorry Samsung.... staying with my GN4, if the GN6 isn't better i'm shifting.
Low storage space and poor battery options are the reasons.

They want to be king ordering people around. Pay for apps so no ads shown. 75% of the apps is for paid unlike less than 30% on android despite having ads which you can disable by disconnecting to the internet. Iphone no bluetooth but they are proud of internet connection. No sd slot but keep convincing themselves there is cloud services. Small battery and also unremovable but still saying that it last longer than average phone despite most iphone users keep pluging in to the wall. I never understand iphone users.
Removing micro sd card also leading to remove usb otg ang Bluetooth transfer files the only reason iPhone didn't put micro sd card so that everything in phone can't be get without permission.

One out of 3 saying the Note.5 not hot - I'm one. It's just a less-features, less-practical, less-versatile Note version than the last 4.
Tech writers are telling us it's great... The real Galaxy Note users like me are disappointed. Flaws like the S Pen being stuck being put in the wrong way, fragile glass back, no memory expansion, and that sealed battery is going to hold a better charge after around 6 months are all silly and obviously undermine how the Galaxy Note series was suppose to be so much better than what it is now.
I'm a Note lover, but I'd definitely vote NOT HOT for that Note5, since it's actually NOT a Note successor but rather literally a blown up S6 with S-pen, with the same exact chips, limitations and flaws of the S6! A big disappointment.
I think Samsung both new phones got less Votes around 60% compared to Sony Phones 80% Votes because Sony still provide Micro SD slot and Samsung ditched SD slot even Rem-removeable battery.
The removal of these two features was a bad move by Samsung. Samsung should rethink about the market dynamics and popular features....
The Galaxy Note for years has been at the top of the food chain in terms of specs. The note has always been about specs, specs, specs...
This time it has been a disappointment. I expected a bigger battery, a bigger screen with less bezel, and better specs, which we didn't get.
So long Samsung, hopefully Huawei Mate 8 will give us the progress we need.
