No removable battery or SD card slot, my note 4 will be my last Samsung product.
Khawaja, 08 Dec 2015It's 32 GB, got it for around AED 2000I got it for 1850 Add titanium beauty, n Dubai street n dear, size of alphabet to huge, but mostly wud type only medium, unless change fonts to bold. Takes 1.46 min to start, and ram being 4gb is 75% filled. No real use if you just show 10gb and 7.5 in use. Koreans must take back touchwiz anomaly out. Only vanilla android like Nexus series. Still not updated to 6 as N4 has already been. Shame!
PARAG B, 08 Dec 2015So that is equal to like $550 approx i guess if we convert the currency ...but you know what s... moreReally? Not the 59,900 Rupees ($935) you spent actually spent for the 64GB on Pre-order/special order? You can easily get this exact info when it first launched in India. Obviously it has gone down a bit - it's now 53,900 Rupees after 3 months.
If it's now $544 (to be exact) for the 32GB, from the usual over $800 is an indication that this half-baked thing is not much making a "success" in selling. 64GB is now about $600+. I guess you paid $300 more for all those "free" things you have been bragging about.
Samsung became mobile market leaders by their original designs. Now that they have started copying apple inc, their sales have started flopping. They should just go back to faux leather n memory card slots coz for most pple its better an original iphone than a copycat more so for the same price.
Khawaja, 08 Dec 2015It's 32 GB, got it for around AED 2000So that is equal to like $550 approx i guess if we convert the currency ...but you know what some one is repeatedly & shamelessly spreading a big LIE here that Note5 costs $1000.
Anyways it was nice to read ur post .
Enjoy Note5 and if u have any questions abt Note5 feel free to ask them here, we will try to answer them.
So, has anyone seen the S7 design? Its a total failure. I don't like S6 and I definitely not going to like this new one from Samsung. Seriously, who is the freakin' designer? What with all the metal and glass. Ridiculous. Fired that guy please.
PARAG B, 08 Dec 2015How much did you buy it for ?.& is it 32gb or 64gb? It's 32 GB, got it for around AED 2000
TheNeighbor, 08 Dec 2015Yawn...me too but in All caps "YAWN..." ROFL

Anonymous, 08 Dec 2015Samsung puts a lot of bloatware in their touchwiz os
Snap810 is still boss, just around 200... morealmost all of ur points are a matter of choice,but ur fact that Super amoled screen does not support waterproofing was commendable Lol.

wysiwyg, 08 Dec 2015huge success? DONT LIE samsung hasn't released sales figues on the note 5 for 3 months instead... moreChill out man! that comment was not for you it for our Mr The NeighBour .That comment was esp disigned for him to make him realise that how does it feel to read same thing again and again& again & again.Lol
TheNeighbor, 08 Dec 2015Yup, Parag B doesn't know how to back up anything he posts with hard evidence. Hearsay is a te... moreWhat do you do with all that expandable storage? I'll tell you ....All you do is post comments in every 2 to 3 mins here and that does not need 200gb of space for sure lol.
you can even work with only 500 mb internal memory only as the whole purpose of ur life is to post ur repeatative and Carp comments here ROFL.
wysiwyg, 08 Dec 2015huge success? DONT LIE samsung hasn't released sales figues on the note 5 for 3 months instead... moreYup, Parag B doesn't know how to back up anything he posts with hard evidence. Hearsay is a terrible thing.
He thinks "98-99%" make up people who DON'T need memory expansion or who would appreciate removable battery, and that 16/32/64 GB is all we need.
Only barely 22% are in agreement that Samsung nailed it totally, majority of 46%, and about almost 32% day it's just Ok:
And a more popular Samsung dedicated site made a poll of markets in Europe:
"We pose this question to all those Galaxy Note lovers that havenÂ’t been turned away by the removable of some traditional features and arenÂ’t living in the Note 5′s launch markets: What route are you taking in order to get your hands on the device? Will you be importing it from a country where the phone will be officially available, opting for the S6 edge+, or simply skipping an upgrade from your current device?"
Of course the result was a staggering 52% will just stick to what they have than "upgrade", which would mean either Note 3 or 4:
There are no polls that will actually say Note.5 is a huge success. Nada!
Even more direct poll is this with 72% telling us that it isn't an upgrade at all, while 7% say it is...
That's why it's laughable that some people are defending this as the "best ever" Galaxy Note. This is probably because they spent $1000 for a downgrade.
Upgraded to Note 5 from Note 4 around 2 weeks back. Following are my observations about Note 5:
a. This phone is significantly faster
b. It is slippery in cold hands, but has a great grip otherwise.
c. Finally a perfect screen with no yellow tinge!
d. The speaker is soo good!
e. The camera is notably better
f. Can charge using wireless FAST charger which is great. Though it doesn't seem to charge wirelessly if battery is less than 3%.
g. No IR blaster is surprising but I rarely used it anyway.
h. No SD is fine since my data is mostly on cloud
i. No removable battery is fine since I rarely took out the battery on previous phone.
j. Dimensions are just perfect way better than before.
k. SPen functionality has improved.
l. Is a fingerprint magnet, but just one swipe cleans it.
m. Fingerprint recognition now actually works. In note 4 I always had to swipe multiple times to unlock the phone.
