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.
[deleted post]huge success? DONT LIE samsung hasn't released sales figues on the note 5 for 3 months instead they have cut staff and expenditure because of poor sales
[deleted post]What if someone with no wifi or 4g or 3g or a pc and has to backup their data, but they have an sdcard but no sdcard card slot to use it and his phone gets formatted
PARAG B, 07 Dec 20151) I am not saying that sd810 is dirt cheap but in compaired to Exynos 7420, sd810 is consider... moreSamsung puts a lot of bloatware in their touchwiz os
Snap810 is still boss, just around 2000 points behind Exynos 74**, so it's not cheap compared
I would rather get the note 4 32GB 3GB ram with sd card slot than note 5 64GB 4GB ram WITHOUT sd card. There are 128-200GB sd cards
I am not "blindly supporting sony, I am using the moto x style
Bunyip22, 08 Dec 2015I'm thinking the "haters" wouldn't be hating if the GN5 storage space wasn't such a downgrade.... moreI'm still at a loss at what was Samsung (designers and executives) were thinking when they decided to put this half-baked thing with 32GB being sold to most regions, and NOT launch in Europe this year.
And we have these people who are underpowered users only satisfied with such 25GB user storage spaces, and be telling us how it's enough. I guess they don't have much to do with a Galaxy Note other than to flaunt how they got a rare 64GB version for $1000, on special order. That's still nothing without being able to use your current 128GB microSD card.
Now with Note.5 features being on Note 4 after an update, Note.5 has become even more LESS significant. I'm just laughing at some people regarding the Note 4 as some budget phone. Clearly these are some who like some distorted sense of status with an object, rather using them as tools.
Equinox Hydroid, 07 Dec 2015sure it will be nice upgrade from note 2 & note 3 but not for haters :DI'm thinking the "haters" wouldn't be hating if the GN5 storage space wasn't such a downgrade. The fact that a 3 year old Note 2 can have 4 TIMES the storage space of a 64GB GN5 is poor form and Samsung shouldn't be surprised by the "hate".
I don't hate the GN5 i'm just really disappointed that the largest amount of storage space i can get in a GN5 is 25GB after the OS is installed.
TheNeighbor, 08 Dec 2015The only thing I really like with the upgrade is the Off Screen Memo - but this could be easil... moreIt is actually a fact they fired the old designer. Not sure the new designer work for apple though.
Equinox Hydroid, 07 Dec 2015sure it will be nice upgrade from note 2 & note 3 but not for haters :DNote 2 - 16GB with MEMORY EXPANSION of up to 200GB
Note 3 - 32GB with MEMORY EXPANSION of up to 200GB
Note.5 - 32GB with NO MEMORY EXPANSION - zilcth, nada, non-existent, not happening.
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2015Okay. I agree this time. Just because the new update made Note4 into a a more powerful Note5. ... moreThe only thing I really like with the upgrade is the Off Screen Memo - but this could be easily carried over with an installer. The Note 4 is even more suited with it not having the pen silo design flaw - you can't put it back the wrong way and gets stuck. This is obviously the biggest mistake next to the rear fragile back of the Note.5. Another thing about the "new" S Pen is that clicky end would pop out while in your pocket, as confirmed by reviewers and my colleague who uses this half-baked thing - numerous ocassions.
S Pen on ALL the previous models do not pop out for no reason. There are so many reasons why not to get the Note.5. It's like they fired the original Note designers, and had some new guy who used to work at Apple to design this.
Equinox Hydroid, 07 Dec 2015sure it will be nice upgrade from note 2 & note 3 but not for haters :DU've got it right mate!
rony, 07 Dec 2015Even a full HD video recorder consume 1 mb/sec, so a 4K recorder surely be a huge memory kille... more1st of all thanks for using civilized words, Lol i just cant belive that i had to say tanks to someone for being civilized here Lol. but what to do man! some hypocrite ppl here just go mad and will use bad & rude words here and moreover they will tell you that "u sud talk properly to me even if i talk like sh*t to you" Lol.
Anyways coming back to ur point yes i know that there are plenty ppl who wud want the micro card slot on there smartphones .Even i had note3 with 32gb internal and micro sd card slot with it, if i wanted i wud have bought a 128gb card and used it but No i bought 32gb card as i do not need 128gb but again that does not mean that iam saying that everyone does not need 128gb card , but the thing is that you cannot deny that there are lots of ppl who do not need more than 32 or 64gb on a smartphone.
Moreover if i compair my Note2 & Note3 with My Note5 only for memory department i feel happy that i got 64Gb INTERNAL memory with Note5 , cause internal memory is always better i mean the micro sd card i use to have with my Note2 & Note3 i had a big limitation like you cannot install the entire app data on the external sd card if u wish to.
plus,not much but sd card use to also make my Note2 & Note3 slow a bit. I can tell this for sure as Note5 is às fast as farrarri in app opening speed plus the gallary app also works like charm which was not the case with my note2 and note3 and no matter what app you open it open fast and works flawlessly if I compair it with my previous note2 and note3 .
well, i know that i sud not compair the two old devices with the new one but I just thought that i sud share my experince after upgrading..but yes even i agree that for ppl who need 128gb or more mem sud have got note5 with 128 gb in built or a sd card slot but just like you for me as well 64gb is more than enough on a smartphone.
PARAG B, 07 Dec 20151) I am not saying that sd810 is dirt cheap but in compaired to Exynos 7420, sd810 is consider... moreEven a full HD video recorder consume 1 mb/sec, so a 4K recorder surely be a huge memory killer. So what's the use of its 4K video and many more other premium features. Whatever you say buddy 64 gb fixed memory is a way too low for a phone/phablate like note 6. I know it's more than enough for me but plenty of people are there who needs much more than this. You can't deny the point. It should have a 128 gb version otherwise a card slot.
