Pay more for data plan, pay for battery changing, pay for extra internal storage that i can't easily transfer in 1 sec to my next phone, lose cloud signal on the trip while downloading or trying to view my files, I really don't see the advantages, maybe I'm a fool I don't know...
And just in case, I'm not a samsung hater, but the opposite, I owned 4 Samsung devices in the last 2 years.

I have never had an SD card fail on any phone before. And to be able to go camping and hot swap a battery, priceless. while other fools fiddle around with their 10 pound battery pack and cords.
Plus it must be nice to have unlimited money to afford a 15GB data plan, unfortunately the majority of us plebs dont.
I'm going with my "gut" too and avoiding this phone.. enjoy, until of course when the time comes when you drop it.. lol
Next time when you start to make Note 6 make me a Call. I`ll tell you how to design and what to use. Please fire your R & D team and UX team. Come on Samsung we love you. Don`t make us hate.

Posting on the Note 5. For all the haters, it's a great phone. I've installed all my apps, put some music and imported all my pictures with plenty of space. Battery life is perfect, fast charging actually works.
This phone is fast, doesn't get hot (unless charging, it's as hot as any other phone). I've installed large programs and multitasked faster and more efficient than the Note 4; yep side by side tests.
No removable battery? Eh! No SD card? Those things fail too often and I've lost too many memories due to that so you can have it.
This phone does everything I'd ever need on the road being a traveler, entrepreneur and graphic artist. I access the PC on the road to transfer files I forgot, backup my files and media easily and data's no biggie since I bumped to the 15GB plan on AT&T.
Glad I stuck with my gut instead of going off comments and reviews. Nice little power player in my hands for my mobile needs. Anything else, that's why I have a laptop.
Akash, 23 Aug 2015Well you are one section of customers... But there are others who are well used to having non ... moreC'mon.... Do you actually believe the BS are they sacrificing the SD card support for the faster internal memory?! If what you said is true, does Note 5 slows down when you plug in a USB 2.0 pen drive?? If not, why will having a microSD be slowing down the internal memory?
Furthermore, users can install apps on the faster internal memory for quicker apps loading, etc while having other multimedia files like movies files and mp3 on the SD card. I don't see why we need such fast internal memory for playing movies and musics. And if Touchwiz is slow, Samsung should trim their Touchewiz without the expense of removing external microSD support. I see HTC Sense are behaving so much better with the HTC phones are running on slower internal memory.
Also, having removal battery doesn't mean the phone has to be ugly. Is all about designs.
Face it. Samsung is just so trying to copy Apple. And fans like you are trying hard to defend Samsung for the stupid decisions.
are you sure about the video file you linked to as 720@120 FPS named (gsmarena_003.mp4)
i watched it and no part of it seems to be in slow motion...
if i understand correctly, shooting at 120FBS will give you slow motion output!

Yes, for the premium look - because they all want to follow the steps of iPhone! Simple as that!
Note series is not meant to be premium. Is meant for power users, for productivity work. If you want premium, get the S series. Samsung should just keep Note series as they are - as there are consumers prefer to have removal battery as well as micro SD support.
What other companies are not offering doesn't mean that Samsung has to follow those stupid companies as well. Furthermore, Samsung is already having the premium S series, why mess with the Note series?

im not so sad about the SD slot... whats actually bothering me is the fact there is no 128 GB version!
now lets try to make some sense here...
about the people who raged about the battery and the SD slot.. to me im happy they were gone, ya know why? because they were changed by a better replacemnt!
the bettery now is wirelessly chared and much faster to be jucied up while on my note2 90 mins will barely give me 70% (being @ zero when is started)... plus now you have 10 mins of charge to last 4 hours on normal telephony usage!
lets go to the SD card slot... i will only whine about this if the SD cards are not the bottel necks when it comes to speed! why would i want some card (even the best class) that will seem to crawl compared to UFS 2.0
generally i like the note5 compared. compared to what i have its amazing.. ill just wait, samsung might come up with 128GB version.. or i can live with 64GB if the OS is lightly loaded.

He WANTS the new Note 5 to have removable battery as well as micro SD. Since Note 5 has already lost its signature build, looking just like another iPhone, might as well he go and get a true iPhone?? What's wrong with that?
Not everyone is buying all these Samsung BS like you do - believing that having a USB flash drive sticking out from the phone is better than having a build-in card like the Note 4. Think about the servicing cost you need to fork out because the built-in battery is dying after the warranty period, vs just replacing the removable battery easily like the Note 4.
hashie, 23 Aug 2015I'm countinous user of note series I'm using note series since note 1 come out there
But now... moreSo you're leaving Samsung because... No support for external storage (even though you could stick a USB flash in it) and No removable battery (which is obviously beefy enough after reading all the reviews)...
And you're joining Apple because... support for up 512GB microSD and a battery that lasts for at least 10 days... right?

this is the essence of diversity ( in case you don't live in that kind of world )..
why do you have to be so selfish with your comment on almost everybody else that critics this N5 ???
can you just see that others might just have seen it at the other way ???
just for your note :
as #1 cellphone manufacturer, THEY can do better ( but they choose not to do it )..

I... morenow its comments like that, which would make one wonder if they ever even owned a samsung. you realize you knowcked the device for specific reasons, then said your going to get a phone which has all the things you just knowcked, with even worse battery life?
a downgrade with a better processor and a battery that last longer? as far as the SD slot get a flash drive for that other stuff they still make those. I don`t miss that stuff and that`s where the phones are going now.
Akash, 23 Aug 2015I understand that pain of waiting.. I'm waiting for it too..but I absolutely love it! I agree ... moreI totally agree, it would be perfect and I would for sure buy the 128 GB for those 30-40 extra $. But now I just feel "wrong" if I buy it, I feel like someone's stealing me, and that was not my feeling with the 2 S3's, the S4 and the Note 3. Despite the excelent premium construction I can't lose that extra memory card slot. And i really hope that Samsung's employees take their time and read this comments for the future.
