I suspect both Note.5 and S6 Plus are limited to mostly 32 GB models from the surplus parts of the failed S6 series selling little - same insides, less features.
It's a confused marketing strategy where you don't sell to an entire contingent (Europe) during the first three months or so, sell only 32 GB models in MOST countries, and you end up with products that are actually LESS in features and versatility than their predecessors!
You sound like you work at Samsung (yeah, you were at the actual launching), and you just lost your hard-core customers like me with silly fragile glass back, gimmicky useless wireless charging, flawed S Pen storage design, sealed battery just puts an expiration date and give us problem to carry or plant charger/charging pad/powerbank just like iPhone users.
Why did you want us to inherit the problems of iPhone users? Gee, to cater the don't-know-don't-care consumers like iPhone users? They just want something shiny to see themselves constantly ready to take beauty shots all day. This is the market you're catering? Concentrate why the Galaxy Note was successful in the first place - versatility, reliability, and sensibility. I don't see any of those traits in your latest products anymore.
PS - It's a good idea you remain anonymous.

That's sure some great multitasking there!
As far as the rest of your drivel you spewed as some form of rebuttal, XOXO buddy ;)
note 5 may not hv a removable battery and a micro sd card. but it is the most powerful and lagless phone . beauty too. and all the uses "the neighbor " has given are useless. if u download 2gb data per day u will bcome a mobile tower. and turning into a mobile tower from a human being is no argument. i want some decent argument for note 5. note 5 is best

You and your twisted life. Please don't bring family matter in here. We are not interested. Fyi, Samsung didn't market S6 edge+ and Note5 the same way. If you haven't attend the Note5 launch or even have the decency to watch it online, please don't say a word. Samsung clearly advertise Note5 for multitasking and S6 edge+ as multimedia consumption. I was there.

"...itÂ’s been established that the data transfer speeds for the new iPhone 5 USB cable hasnÂ’t changed. It will still offer the same speeds as the old connector, which meets the performance specifications for USB 2.0".
Thankfully, I still use a Note 3 which has USB 3.0, which is 10 times more speed than a 2.0. Yes, it's an Android device.
And if you do not know what is the difference between a USB 2.0 and 3.0:

I thought that was what the S series was for... and I'm guessing they wanted some comeback with the poor S6 sales by putting another "bigger S6 with a pen". Samsung marketing department fail. I don't care for Samsung products anymore if they're still trying to be iPhones.
Guys, why nobody talks about the lag of the Samsung micro usb socket. IPhone socket is million times better...
hmmm.. i always thought of upgrading my note 2 to note 5, long overdue anyway, however having used to certain luxuries like removable batteries and sd card function does makes me think is it worth my money?, forget iphone - overrated, overpriced for the most stuff i am doing, as a statement of fashion, not iphone - ohh puh-leaseee, having iphone doesnt automatically means u are fashionista- far from it. my note2 does lag and getting slower by day with micro stuttering, and the battery is weak too after 3 years. worth buying.. seriously i guess note 5 is not for me since for the price i am paying, there are no luxuries that i am used too.
well.. i guess its time for root, get trim command on the storage, slap in 10000mah battery with casing and i am good for the next 3 years. probably flashing too. if my impulse buying brain fart is willing probably i'll get note 4 or z5 premium, anyone from kl, lets go for teh tarik session

She went with the Note 5 too because she thought it would help her out with taking notes in college. Turns out her university didn't allow smartphone use in class.
She never uses the pen or has any idea how the multitasking is supposed to be. Now she wished she had a S6 Edge+ because she would rather of had the entertainment value of a phone.
That's where Samsung is failing. They aren't differentiating their flagship phones. They market both S6 and Note 5 as the same but one has a pen. So, if one doesn't care to use a pen or doesn't see the reason to use one and they see the Note is nothing different than an S6 with a pen; what's the appeal to the Note?
HTC has a history of this type of marketing. They had a ton of phones with no separation or defining need. Sure as hell hurt their business.
For those who think I'm just out to down the Note, I have 2 of them. Each has issues. Don't even go there. I've given plenty of reason why I'm pretty pissed off on how Samsung is treating their market that made them a success.

If I had a Galaxy Note when I was 14, I'd be ecstatic!

Still, they aren't buying a Galaxy Note any soon. They just bought the latest iPhone just to feel they're "updated".

Why is Samsung trying to market to those 14 year old kids with garbage hip hop music all while showing using the s-pen for writing childish love notes and drawing hearts in their commercials.
No, my daughter might not know what a true efficient smartphone with a pen does. Neither does Samsung anymore apparently.

All they want is popular brand and super expensive and call it a day. Teenager simply wants to show off to their friends. When I was a teenager I wanted an expensive and popular phone too like Nokia. Your daughter will realized how wrong her choices is after she grows up. She will wonder why she choose an expensive iphone and burden her parent like that instead of choosing a high specs cheaper android(no need to buy Samsung specifically). If 4.7" display satisfy your daughter, why not.

The beauty face selfie function is just laughable - live editing to make your eyes bigger and jaw small really is important... I know all the flaws of this thing and I can only see the don't-know-don't-care crowd pouring money because of the shiny finish.
Meantime, Apple is killing it with force touch, 128GB of storage, and NOT a whole lot of change from before. iPhone is made for the masses that conforms to peer pressure and brand popularity. Shame Samsung is trying so hard to mimick it. Yes, my colleague's teenaged daughter insisted on an iPhone because she doesn't want to be the only one in her group that doesn't use an iPhone.

She said: "NO WAY! I want an IPhone!"
I couldn't convince her, even with the cool pen of the Note. You would think with all the money Samsung is blowing trying to use hip hop music and drawing hearts and love notes with the Note 5; didn't really work too well did it?
Instead of taking a successful product and trying to tailor it towards a market that doesn't want you, tailor it to YOUR market.
Still waiting on the multitasking fix. Guess it doesn't matter - they are too worried about iPhone users.

I played aound with it and the only things I like were the camera settings and S Pen.
Features that made the Note.5 terrible:
No changeable battery
No infrared remote function
No memory expansion slot
Fragile glass back
Only 32GB for MOST countries
Design flawed S Pen storage
That's why I'm keeping my Note 3. Now that I use 128GB microSD card, and waiting for my two 6400mAh extended batteries, it'll be heck of useful than this.
Who does live broadcasting? Who needs that 4-video collage? Beauty face functions? This thing sounds it's geared for those don't-care-don't-know crowd - an inheritance of iPhone users. Yeah, it's hip to be carrying around powerbanks and be hip about it.
Meantime, I can carry just one device without having to carry charger/charging pad/powerbank and USB OTGs, by just using an extended battery and my 128GB micro SD card.
