thanks guys for the review
but you forgot to test how loud is the speakers, Sunlight legibility, and screen brightness (also you should test the camera photos against the S6, there maybe some changes, Samsung is known on having bad revealings and omitting many updates and improvements)
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2015Aha it seems... Gsmarena cutting and censoring comments if you say anything against shamesung... moreNonsense. I said CONS of the phone and the comment still visible. Its the troll like you whose comments are getting deleted and that's good thing.
Aha it seems...
Gsmarena cutting and censoring comments if you say anything against shamesung, may be this comment will also won't be published, but I'm not surprized, totalitairsm and dictatorism all arround the world why not internet, huh gsmarena?
Did you became a slave of imperial capitalism?
Well, it would appear that those final words by gsmarena are the definition of beast.
But where can a European get one? What about region locking?
vrvly, 21 Aug 2015Q:1-is ISO800 absolute maximum?
2-when considering difference in maximum of available memory... more1. No, it can go at least twice that (ISO1600)
2. Depends on your budget and needs
3. A lot better than the mono low bit rate iPhone recordings, probably about the same as the G4.
I will not upgrade my Note 3 to this Note 5, just hope that Microsoft new flapship 5.7" has stylus, removeable battery and MicroSD card slot, if not wish for next Note 6 or Note 7 in future have these features..

As long as the speaker is anywhere on the side, any side of a phone, I am okay.
Gsm Arena how strong is the ringing volume in dB on N5? On other phones you usually post this information on reviews and it would be great if you do the same on N5. Many thanks and great review of N5.
I don't think a lack of stereo speakers are a con. The tradeoff is too much for speakers that don't need to be used. If you actually want people to hear it just use a bluetooth speaker. I don't want my phone to have huge bezels for tiny stereo speakers (and they will always sound tiny- can't get around physics).

Forgot to add iPhone 6+ or the upcoming 6S+ as a potential alternative after th... morePotential? Are you high? Let's see, Note5 has twice the camera, four times the RAM, twice the screen, a higher screen-to-body ratio, a dedicated stylus and so much going for it that it smoked iBendy a couple of states ago, at almost the same price. Oh and I particularly dont like Samsung. I am using an iPhone right now. If you want a good phablet go with Moto X Style (if expandable memory and $400 is your range). If money is no object then go for Note5.
P.S. I dont think that many people actually use the S-Pen. I had a Note II and the pen was only used when someone wanted to doodle.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2015this is one hell of an expensive phone for an android phone. No joke considering its exactly ... moreYour embarrassing yourself, sit down before you fall over. Notice the elephant not in the room, excellent review, marred by the missing single statement, on the last page, "No iphone mentioned here, they simply don't belong in the same conversation.". Commerce being what it is, than can safely, be , attributed, to the power exercised , by the control afforded, by possibly , the sites largest advertiser, if not sponser.
To the fragile amongst us , get a transparent quality case like iphone users do.
Infra red remote, not in years, im sure , you, could quote me, all tne quality apps, one of which I use, which run accross the wifi networks, we all , already use.
The memory, guess we'll all have our own ways round it, apple owner don't keep harping on at it being a problem, neither has it ever been reported, (to my knowledge.) that every model
they sell, only sells massively if its 128gb.
So, cloud storage, usb massive cheap tiny thumbs,( Some including micro sd readers.) micro hard drives, the world's our gnote oyster, good health to all the samsung buyers and, good health to all those , who desperately, plague, every samsung flagship thread, in a desperate attempt to put off people buying samsung phones, so some other firm can get more sales.
Forgot to add iPhone 6+ or the upcoming 6S+ as a potential alternative after the conclusion !!
Q:1-is ISO800 absolute maximum?
2-when considering difference in maximum of available memory and maximum battery performance with note4, is it still worth???
3-is audio recording on the level of g4, or iphone6? (it is not on the level of 1020/1520 I hear)
would help to record some hard music....
[deleted post]You mean the photos of the Note 5 itself? Mobile camera? You kidding right?
Gotta be a 1D X or something like that.
jk, 21 Aug 2015Maybe for you..not for me...I think g4 is a good phone..LOLI don't think G4 is a good phone, I think its an outstanding phone, but then again you will have to know form what perspective I am saying that :p
Good news, eh, finding that dat 3000mAh does well on Note5?? Surely taking one on silver titanium!
