You never knows when your phone xan get stolen. At least your data is plug-and-go type. With sd card, you need that tiny needle thing to poke the sd slot open and position the tiny little thing properly into the slot is not all that easy isn't it? New sd slot in smartphone are using the side, not from the back cover anymore.

After all this time - people have to endure all of of these nonsense of carrying other accessories like wireless card readers for more memory space, and powerbanks because the battery simply is not enough before you get home.
All because you want glass as the material in 90% of the surface of the phone.
What a way to show up.
PARAG B, 03 Jan 2016correction - I also have not experinced any memory shortage on my Note5 I also use a wireless memory card reader the size of a credit card where I can put my 128GB micro SD card with HD movies stored in it just in case I need to watch any of them on a large LED smartTV.
Note 5 reset messed up my phone. Verizon said it was the Google kill switch. Any one heard of this?

If a micro USB OTG works, why the heck a simple microSD card CAN'T? I don't buy the UFS 2.0 does not work with microSD cards BS.
I personally feel that including a mechanism like a sim removal tray for the battery inside the note 5 also would go a long way to ease battery replacement and also maintain phone aesthetics.

When I transferred all its files to my 64GB Note 5 including the files from the 128GB expansion memory they are all accomodated by the Note 5. I just thought that I don't need that much phone storage to be happy. Now I am more satisfied with my glass phone.

I am enjoying my Note 5 now more than my previous plastic phones.
Thanks to Samsung. Great job.
More than almost 98% of u ppl who r saying that they needed removable battery do not even use that feature.but the ppl like u use this topic just to bash samsung & note5 lol
I use my smartphone a lot & i had lots of smartphones with removable battery but always hated to remove the battery.
plus the ppl who says that they need the sd card there sd cards are normally filled with p 0*n LOL.
just joking abt p 0*n.
however 64gb of internal memory on a smartphone is really of a great value than having only 16gb or 32gb internal memory models & 64 gb is more than enough for approx 98% ppl hence the bottom line
Note5 is such a huge sucess even without the removeable battery and a card slot & a lack of 128gb modal :) There is just no better smartphone out there rightnow than note5. Enjoy Note5 guys.& keep sharing new tips abt note5 whenever possible.

I have to go through hundreds of research papers. Thanks to technology, I can breeze through them and they can be voice read while I'm commuting/doing commissioned work using EZPdfReader.
As tertiary school professor, I assign and share ebooks for my students to digest. I even project some of these via projector/TV. Architecture is such a broad field - philosophy, artistic, designing process, scientific, technical/engineering, building regulations, theories. It has reached 70 GB, and just have an entire copy on my 128 GB microSD card.
It just makes sense to keep then so handy in the most used daily device you put in your pocket.
And then there is this guy who tells us 64 GB is enough. Show up.
Tcool, 03 Jan 2016Poll results: Samsung Galaxy Note5 is the Phablet of the year 2015. Yeah, just don't get the 128 GB to avoid being a show up with files that need to stay home or in the office.

Status quo celebration!
Just don't buy the 128 GB version or you are "abnormal", or " weirdo ", or "dumb".
