They figured out that with "fast" wireless charging will accelerate the deterioration of the sealed battery faster, and strategic in making it obsolete in time for the next year's model. Meantime, some people think it's "revolutionary".
Looks like fragile glass back is it with the same design with the S7.

They see Apple not having to over deliver with their hardware so they want the same thing. That creates profits for them. So they want to tap into that market, even if it means snubbing their own past users.
To be able to give less then, turn around and offer services that are paid; that creates more revenue. Unfortunately it's not working so well with them as it has Apple.
The whole "wanting a smartphone that can be your main device on the road with all the memory you want" is over with these major companies. That's why they brought in "Milk" and other Samsung-only services. They don't want you to store all your music or entertainment on your 256GB SD Card, they want you to use their services to get that (cloud storage, cloud media, cloud downloads, cloud streaming).
If the next Note doesn't have expandable storage it's safe to say it's not going to happen. Might want to root and rom your phone until it becomes obsolete if that's the case.

Over 10 years back, I used to carry an 80 GB portable HDD and I was elated that I could carry a copy of my entire media with me.
Yes, I could see Xiaomi going for 256 GB. But someone telling me that 64 GB is what everyone needs is the silliest thing, while older devices can achieve an extra 256 GB via SD card with a micro SD card adapter imbedded within the phone's cover. Hehe, I'd "show up" with one if the darn 256 GB SD card isn't so expensive.
The thing is, 128 GB microSD is working out right now for carrying all my now over 70 GB of architecture references and is transferable to my Note 8 or Surface 2.
No way 64 GB is enough for me.

I will be surprised if the main players like Apple/Samsung go that high. For them it's about serving the masses and gaining as much profit as possible. The masses don't seem to care how much memory they have versus the brand they are carrying.
Much like the desktop market. Yes, I'm all-in when it comes to high-end parts (overclocking, etc). The majority will just run out and buy a decent AMD desktop and have no clue about ram, hard drives, etc. I know, I used to sell them. The phone market is quite the same.

And here you are today, telling us that anything above 64 GB is "abnormal" and for "dumb" people. Who's close minded?
PARAG B, 02 Jan 2016how do u take selfie with rear cam? plz spread some light here if u can?It's a plugin called Rear-cam Selfie. It focuses in on all the faces then snaps the pic.
I have it and it works. Especially for those times when you want a higher quality selfie. Get it in the Samsung Apps store, free.

It only warms up on fast charging, but no heat during casual usage or gaming. The Exynos chip is very efficient in terms of power saving and heat management. Check if there are any rogue apps that might be causing the issue.
My feeling with note 5 after using note 5 is ..Anyway people know the pros..i wish to highlight the cons
Heating issues are there ..i dont know if that is gng to get fixed with latest update samsung has given in india january ..72mb
CAMERA - Bright sunlight fabulous but inside home under tubelights nothing to boast of..great noice is visalible and shaky
Front cam i rarely use for selfies as there is an option for rearcam selfie

And I don't care if they are dumb, I just want to justify my statement. Nothing more.
Please don't be malicious minded. It's a shame.
I think if samsung place memory card in the note 5... they cant compete their mid range phone such as galaxy a8 or a7 in the market... but if u are seeking for good camera go for note 5...

Yes, they should listen to you because you don't want people becoming "dumb" with 128 GB models.

Thank you for stating that first. Gotcha."Every person's need(s) is (are) different..."
Thank you for re-stating that. Gotcha.
Not all users need phone with expansion memory, not all people need phone with removable battery.
End of story.

16MP main cam, higher ppi density, Corning Gorilla Glass 4, fingerprint lock, wireless fast charging and etc which the plastic phone Note 3 doesn't have.
inspite of this we can take microsoft lumia 950xl.it is much better than samsung note 5

I keep wondering what you mean.
Pointing to the ceiling?
Being present for meetings/parties?
"I hope you can show up for our annual dinner tonight".
I mean, it sure is funny if you keep saying:
"You're a show up for having so much files on your phone!"
"Why did have all our files we needed?! You show up!"
"OMG, TheNeighbor, why did you bring your nice HD movies and TV series for us to watch at the hotel? You're a show up!"
Am I getting what you mean right?
