The reason why I got myself a 128GB micro SD card this month, seeing that there likely will be no new Galaxy Note variant with a memory expansion, I'm staying with my Note 3 that has a micro USB 3.0 for fast data transfer with my laptop's SSD.
Not only has Samsung removed the Micro SD card they are only selling 32GB GN5s that are compatible with the Australia networks (64GB elsewhere).... WTF .... WTF... WTF!!!
I have owned all the previous 4 Notes but the run has stopped at the GN4. The GN4 will last another 12 months, if the storage issues aren't fixed with the GN6 i'm forced to go elsewhere :-(
When GSMarena planning to use 3Dmark benchmark? this is much more accurate and more powerfull benchmark than any others...anyone know that....
I guess the Note 4 is the end of the line for me.
Without expandable memory it looks too costly a device, be it Note5 or S6plus and prices of these two.

Yes, of couse. as soon as there are memory controllers supporting BOTH eMMC and UFS. For now it's either or. UFS is faster, but means no SD, since it needs the old, slow standard.
Samsung Note 5 (54K) has minor upgrade in build and design in comparison to Note 4. On top of it Note 4 (39K) is 15 K cheaper in India.
I was planning to buy Note 4 but guess what ... Samsung has stopped selling note 4 in India which is strange. When Note 4 was launch that time Note 3 was readily available. It clearly means that Samsung is very much aware that there is minimal diff between Note 5 and Note 4 and to boost Note 5 sales they have stopped Note 4 production and sales while Note 3 is still available in their inventory :)
ive had many phone including note 4 and iphone 6 plus and the note 5 is the best phone ive had by far. The screen is out of this world, did i mention is blazing fast and preety?
As a big fan and long time user I am very disappointed by samsungs lack of balls. Note is the best of what android has to ofer and they just went and copied that POS apple. No removable battery, no sd card...well f.u back to you sammy. I am sure that note5 is a beast...but it's just a slightly better version of note4 (witch is the best phone ever) minus features that made note phone a note. Just buy note 4 ad an sd card and enjoy until samsung gets some sense and makes a phone for its users and not sheeps. And what's with that "premium design" nonsense...this phone costs serious money...yeah just use it without case and keep calm. I take protection over design any day.
My opinion is , beside some fancy stuffs solely from Note 5, in this moment the NoteEdge should still be the most user friendly phone. If you could get one at a lower price, NoteEdge would still be the current best choice.
I expect much more but there is no difference between not 4 and 5. Also phone will not dust and scratch proof.
I'm an avid samsung user have every s model and note model samsung has really fell off on this s6 and note 5 disign first off no expandable sd slot and built in battery wow. I feel like I'm buying an I-phone ..... sd slots and removable battery is what separates the androids from apple I feel this is a huge draw back I will continue using my note 4 and s5 as long as possible cuz that have fell off with the s6 and note 5 disign ... as a super user rooted I'm disappointed

samsung sucks but still, if you want the best from samsung, it's the note line
It might be true that iPhone does not have An IR blaster,micro SD card or removable battery and still making good sales. But I promise you that iPhone would triple it's sales if it should have an IR,micro SD card and a removable battery.
Have forgotten how iPhone doubled it's sale when they increased the size of the iPhone 6?
I'm sorry to disappoint you guys, but beside a few nerds nobody cares about micro sd, user replaceable battery and IR (especially IR). iPhone never had those features and it is still the best selling phone of all times by a huge margin.
I'd take the HTC One M9 over this one anyday:
- IR blaster
- No S-Pen to ruin your phone if reversed by mistake
- FM radio
- better build (its back won't break...)
- same speed on day to day use...
and so much more!
Only problem is the mediocre camera, but hey, I got a real camera for my real photography. The phone camera is just for social snapping.
