Anonymous, 26 Jan 2016There are many Note 5 salesmen/salesgirls here :)Then what else do u expect in the Note5 page Lol .but to b honest Buy one, u will also find urself being one of those salesmen unknowingly Lol.. btw that's how great is The unbeatable Note5 Man! U will have no other option but to fall in love with its beauty, power and performance.even when it lacks few features.
I owned lots of brand new plastic smartphones like S2, Note2,Note3 etc in the past however Non of those devices gave the premium and classy smartphone feeling like Note5 .
But this is not to say that Note5 is perfect smartphone.but there is just no better smartphone rightnow than Note5.
Equinox Hydroid, 26 Jan 2016Even after the mate 8 released i still prefer the note 5! Does it still have the geo news app... moreThat's right man The note5 is still better than the Mate 8 :) btw the geo app can still be used on note5 however its a optional downloadable app from galaxy apps now.

Btw even the recently launched huawei mate8 and oppoo r7 plus have also tried but even they cannot beat the Mighty Note5 in style features and overall hardware quality.but j must sag they also look great :)
For those who are crying on removing sd card slot + removable battery + ir port
As a note 4 user
- i never used sd card as i have a plenty of internal memory also i have a Tab S 8.4 using it for videos and movies and playing games annd music
- i never open the device back cover to remove the battery since i bought it...only to insert or remove the sim.
- didn't use or even open the ir remote option so its useless for me also i have it in my tab S.
Tcool, 24 Jan 2016Because you don't know that Note 5 has power optimization that will make the battery last longer.So you are not a power GN5 user, you just use it as fashion and of course have longer battery using.

Or any other way to know whats eating my battery?
I love this phone.. but battery making it hard for me.
Can I install other country firmware (with different model number) I mean galaxy note 5 n9208 firmware in n920cd
Tcool, 26 Jan 2016Ok let me put it this way, before I was using Note 3 connecting to WiFi hot spot only (no LTE)... moreReally? 6 hours on a charge? Over "JUST" WiFi usage? Oh please... 16.5 hours on Android 5.0 with 4.5 his screen on usage time for me:
17 hours on 5.1.1 with 6 hours screen on usage time on, half WiFi on the N3:
I already told you the N5 had a better battery efficiency, but it's not mules away from a Note 3.
If we follow GSM Arena's battery test, Note.5 is 13% more endurance efficient than a Note 3; talk time is 57% more than the Note 3;18.1% more efficient in browsing time than Note 3; and 10% better in video paying time.
Nothing to suggest that 6 hours only on one charge for the N3. What, GSM Arena's is wrong? Show us proof with screen shots, or stop the BS.
Assure, 25 Jan 2016Most late n updating security update, still on Nov 15, no chances of update to Jan 16. Till d... moreFrom my years of experience using Samsung, the updates always have a regular pattern. The Note series will always be updated to the latest android version almost at the same time with the next generation Galaxy S series. The Galaxy S series from previous generation always gets the latest update before the the latest Note series. For example, the Note5 will receive Marshmallow update timely with Galaxy S7 released. The S5 and S6 already received Marshmallow update before the Note5. The reasoning is simple, Samsung wants to synchronized the latest Touchwiz UI for both Note5 and S7 since they are released so near to each other. You will see S7 getting Android N before Note6 even got it by the end of the year. That is how I see it. Feel free to add more guys.
TheNeighbor, 26 Jan 2016"Allround"? Not with only 32 GB only sold in most countries.Correction 64GB is available in most countries. I feel sorry for your country.

But with Note 5, with the same activity, it gives me more than 1 day of battery juice.
Still close minded cause you are a hater.
TheNeighbor, 26 Jan 2016Your January 9 comment: "Note 5 battery power lasts more than 24 hours with brightness on f... moreAs I mentioned from my previous post, doing the exact same activity with plastic phone Note 3 to premium glass phone Note 5, the Note 5 battery outlast Note 3 battery even with spare battery and it doesn't matter whether LTE or WiFi on both phones. Same daily activity for both phones that is the story, don't divert again liar professor.

"Note 5 battery power lasts more than 24 hours with brightness on full, GPS always on, gaming and downloading files with great LTE speeds..."
So, why even mention LTE when you just said you use your Huawei Shot X as your hotspot? "Great LTE speeds?" Hehe, I highly doubt you even use the LTE of your Note.5 at all. And the reason is you use your secondary phone (Huawei Shot X) instead - this is even why you're getting "24 hours" of usage per charge.
I'm pretty interested how much actual screen on usage time (in hours) you get with "brightness on full"... Still no screen shot for that?
I know two users of this phone who report only geting just above 4 hours of screen on usage per charge. They actually have ONLY this ONE phone, and need to charge before they go home, OR suffer very low power before getting home.
galaxy note 5 camera is the worst .the field of view of the lens is much wider than the size of the image sensor Â“barrel distortion" plus over saturated colors.
