[deleted post]Thanks for the tips. I'm on a GN4 so space isn't an issue but i might have to look at google photos and google music. The unlimited storage looks ok. (a 32GB GN5 still wouldnt work for my needs though)
siemens is back in game under the name gigaset 3 new models flagship killers
I recently got a new Note 5. Its totally amazing, Love every feature in it. Increased RAM (compared to Note 2, Previously owned) is super fast, also able to download content fast, I totally love having in-built MS Office and it automatically makes a highlights video of videos in your phone. I especially love its camera (both front cam and back cam) its very clear but sometimes it shows out every lil mark on my face which my old phone never did.
Having a good camera is sometimes bad too, but most of the times its good. I am totally satisfied with this product. :)
Draw back : it dosen't have hidden apps where I can dump rarely used applications
kunal vesavkar, 11 Dec 2015Note 5 is the bestIf your happy to accept just 32GB of space in many countries.
absolut-allen, 11 Dec 2015Just so ya know.. I'm not a fanboy. I've had every phone under the sun. Only 2 Samsung phones ... moreI have a LG 42" 3D smart Tv which came with a magic remote in 2013 even i bought the tv in 2013 it supports inbuilt screen mirroring on the galaxy note5 which has got few updates i mean the magic remote came with the tv can be used to control the entire smartphone .the magic remote has a mouse like feature & my note5 takes every command (back, task switcher, home buttons) from it which is just amazing i mean its gives a pc like feeling with everything on the huge tv screen. although u cannot play all the android games with it (anyways i mainly play AAA games on my ps4) cause there a microsecond latency in screen mirroring but u cud watch full hd videos and use the phone as a browser on big scrren. my note2 and note3 did not have this magic remote functionality they use to only mirror the screen .
The thing to wonder is that my note5 is supporting my 2013 lg smart tv and the tv that old also has a remote working as a mouse for note5 for me it was like fortunate co-incidence.

However I am a fanboy when it comes to TV'S. I only do Samsung with that. LG I feel is almost as good, but; the screen ratio settings are weird and don't seem to work for my channels. Samsung delivers in that aspect as it auto adjusts.
As far as phones: I've had everything and no fanboy here. Have a Crucial SSD in my PC instead of a Samsung Evo. Hmm. Do have a Samsung monitor though.

Yes, I'll admit it; Samsung copied the old iPhone with the glass back on the Note 5.
Do I like it? Not really. It's the same cop-out that Apple used with the HTC.
Usually people that are looking for an android phone want the customization factor though. It's two different form factors when choosing between an iPhone or Android. It's not about looks really. You seem to love the Note 5 so why suggest an iPhone? Although I have suggested an iPhone to a coworker before, it's because she wanted the simplicity instead of dealing with customizing. That's about it.
Stick to your guns if you're really into this Note.
absolut-allen, 11 Dec 2015Just curious how you think the iPhone 6 looks sexy when it looks identical to an almost 3 year... moreOh look, he used the word "hypocrite" again without knowing what it exactly it means... Totally contradicting himself to what he keeps telling us.
absolut-allen, 11 Dec 2015Just curious how you think the iPhone 6 looks sexy when it looks identical to an almost 3 year... moredam u! that is my personal opinion may be if you wud have taken a hands on u wud not have found it to b dam sexy but i did.why do i have not like some things from the rival device , i am not a hypocrite like few dumb ppl here.i'll give u a example i also like the mirror back on the chrome color Z5P a lot no matter how much i hate it for not having the biggest apreture, OIS , 5.7" amoled screen, small bezels etc...so the moral of the story is there are diffrent things diffrent ppl look for while buying a device & there cud be something that you wud like from other devices as well .
I do not have fanboy type mentality to just follow one OEM and agree to everything they do.LOL.
PARAG B, 07 Dec 2015That is very true man Note4 is still a great device that is why i said if u can wait then prob... moreAnd here's another telling him that the Note 4 is "still a great device", bit on November 23 you said:
"More over Note4 feels like a Note3 or a note3 neo in front of Note5, I mean Note5 just feels like a completly diffrent Premium and wonderful device.& Note4 feels like a cheap device."
Man, you don't know what you're saying. Feeling confused?
PARAG B, 11 Dec 2015Yeh man Iphone 6 s plus looks dam sexy and robust even i got attracted to buy it instead of N... moreLOL. Your post last November 11:
"6s+ & Z5p are the exact copy of there previous flagship line up means they still come with those huge bezels and over repeated design language".
And now you are telling us you find it "sexy"?
Sheesh. Get your story straight.

My fiancé got that phone back when it came out (pre-order). The iPhone had the glass back, then. It's a pure copy of the HTC.
Now we have a Note 5 that's a copy of the "then" iPhone when the HTC ONE came out. Glass back.
Samsung is paying almost a billion $ for copying the iPhone. Think it's time Apple pays for copying HTC.
MirzaSohail, 11 Dec 2015Need Sincere Advice, I have shortlisted IPhone 6s Plus & Note 5 Currently owing note 3 b... moreYeh man Iphone 6 s plus looks dam sexy and robust even i got attracted to buy it instead of Note5 but then when i compaired it side by side in a hands on i felt that note5 is much better in overall specs however in looks department iphone is like 95% and note5 is like 89% IMO even if you compair 6splus with note5 only robust body and a little better looks is what is going on with Iphone 6s plus but the rest like camera,screen quality and size,OS,light weight and compactness etc are all the upsides of Note5.I know my opinion is not helping you much to make up ur mind but get the phone based on ur usage.i mean if you do not use smartphones a lot then i guess the ip6splus is better but if u use ur smartphone a lot i mean cameras, OS, battery life, etc then note5 is the better option. cause i went with note5 cause i use my smartphone a lot.

I just find it annoying that my most used device is reduced to requiring you to plug it about 2 to 4 hours before you get home. My experience with the Note 8.
All for the sad fad of making phones thin with little batteries, and making you carry power packs. Just absurd.
TheNeighbor, 11 Dec 2015Haha, I guess they never fixed this problem. Similar is with my Note 8 - battery indicator flu... moreApparently not. Sucks that I pulled her away from iPhone. She went to the HTC One. That one ended up having battery issues. Then she goes with the Note 5 and here we are with battery % issues.
Unfortunately she's going back to iPhone after this. I'm hopefully going Surface Phone if it's true. I just need a good working pen and true multitasking.
Mirza Sohail, stick with N3 till next year 1st qtr when S7 plus with gaint 6" released. Otherwise its your choice.Problem with ourselves is cells have become our weakness, and class conscious, everybody doesn't come from filty rich background, but there cell reflects the mentality of Us. Have a second thought and react.
