Be Cool, 07 Feb 2016:@WickedArrogant Liaaar No one Note user will 'move on' because of that. Even if we are mad... moreVery very wrong. Since I could not get a SD card and MHLwith a Note 5, I decided to leave Samsung and am the proud ownder of a Sony Z5 Premium. Until I do not get the high end, ultra spec phones I was used tow ith previous Note's I will not return? And the Note 10.1 14 Editio is WAY overdue on a upgrade too!
No one Note user will 'move on' because of that. Even if we are mad at Samsung because of what they did. Simply out there is nothing that can replace the Note.
Cool story though:)
The damage is done, me and many of my close friends been loyal fans since the first Note Lineup, and now the way they disrespected our whole continent with lamest reasoning such as residents of GB dont use S-Pen etc made us move on. keep kissing Americas Butt Samsung. don't forget to add 2 phones in one box promotion this time around for Americans.

Also what are you going to do when your phone's battery dies (as all batteries eventually do).
Lastly you have to wait to have your phone charged, with removable it's instant 100%. To me that's more significant than all the advanatages of sealed phones put together (if they have any, really).
Yasser, 06 Feb 2016 I prefer non-removable battery, it feels better in hand.How? My galaxy alpha has removable battery yet it is thinner than most phones.
Also it's very possible to create a removable battery in non plastic body (see Samsung Wave, Jiayu G5s and LG G5).
There's no appreciable difference in a phone's body by using a removable or non-removable battery (you just use a smaller removable battery if need be, since it's removable it doesn't matter that it is small, as carrying a spare is next to nothing, carrying a power bank *is* the problem).
Yasser, 06 Feb 2016 I prefer non-removable battery, it feels better in hand.you can still use a phone with a removable battery without removing the battery. there's no difference in how the phone feels in the hand as long as you don't open the back compartment and hang the battery from a string.
I brought the note 4 in January and love it looked at the s6 edge but didn't like the curved edges, note phones all the way for me.
In my opinion removeanle battry is no more a big deal nowadays because you can buy a decent power bank with similar price of a spare battry and use it to charge and power all your devices on-the-go very easily.i hope they just implement sd card slot again

HEUY, 06 Feb 2016wow we have an expert on the comments section...NOT!thanks for your expert analysis of the posters !!!
if they don't add removable battery on the next note, then i ll stay with my note4
Don't care, Note stopped being a pro phone ever since they sealed the battery. Much better options nowadays. Samsung can suck it (I bought all Notes until Note 4, now they're kids' company).
I don't care for the edged screen or the second miniature screen on the LG V10..just a gimmick. I would rather see Sammy release a regular 5.5" screen S7 with the big battery.
My guess is they are trying to sweeten the S7 Edge with the bigger battery and 5.5" screen.
I think that's not fair to those Sammy fans who will prefer an S7 with regular bigger 5.5" screen and bigger battery. I think just like they tried to force the S6 Edge to Europeans in place of the Note5, it will backfire in the US and other markets for trying to force S7 Edge instead of a bigger screen and bigger battery regular S7.
Why not also make available a 5.5" screen and bigger battery S7 available to ALL markets...let the consumer make their pick.
If note6 will got the same specs as S7, its not very bright future.

I was planning to switch to Note 5, but since it has smaller battery than Note 4, non removable one, no SD card slot and no IR blaster (I use it a lot), then the Note 4 seems a better option. Also, i don't like the glass back, that's why i never bought any Xperia Z smartphone.
