Now, Note5 Winter Edition have 128gb available. Only in South Korea for now. For the rest of you, keep crying.

c... moreReally, you know my needs?
For starters i have 50GB of mapping data (for work and play).... that's before a lot of music, videos, tv shows, photos OS and apps. Australia only has a 32GB GN5 available so its clearly not suitable for my needs... Will stick with my GN4 and its 192GB of storage thanks...

Rockplanet, 17 Dec 2015Except wired charger takes up space for connector.Wow. Yeah, that's something to worry about. Really BIG problem.
CRASH, 17 Dec 2015Haha, its funny that you believed its gonna get fast charging in wireless mode than wired, whe... moreRead again. I do not believe in "fast" or the normal wireless charging. They are slow, even with "fast" with "under 120 minutes". With fast WIRED charging (WITHOUT the fancy round charging pad), you get charged "under 90 minutes".
Some think wireless is so high tech, and so cool - NOT! It's more impractical, unless you're showing off to the iPhone crowd.
You end up with a device with more heat, which is the number one friend of battery deterioration of that silly sealed battery.
I've seen colleagues just keep on carrying powerbank/charger/charging pads and struggle to keeping have that one sealed/removable battery of their during the day. 2-4 hours of being to plug in and wait for full charge before going home. This is the future? This is more like backward thinking.
While I just change batteries within 90 SECONDS with my Note 3, and regain full power - Not waste 90 minutes of waiting daily. I'm stepping up with 6400mAh batteries, and not have to worry about charging/changing batteries during my waking hours.

I cannot find the silver Note 5 in any local store where i live in the middle east .. it's the best color (yes even better than gold to me) and they keep it in Korea and China only .. the only option is to order it online but i can't do that for the time being.
It's a good phone brings many things like a Swiss Army knife but without FM Radio ?? is incredible !!!!. Additionally it is too expensive. Huawei Mate 7- 8 are equivalent to my needs and less inflated prices.

They can never go beyond 6.9". 7" is already a tablet territory. Smartphone like Xperia Z Ultra will be the norm a few years from now. When wee look back at 5" smartphone we will realized how small it was. As smartphone are getting thinner with slimmer bezel or bezel-less it is easy to make small smartphone with large display. I hope to see a completely bezel free smartphone from ZTE.

I really think any of the latest top end Samsung will never workout with my constant usage as my primary internet connection daily.
Either Samsung gives us a version with double the battery, or bring back removable battery. And all the goodness of at least Note 4 features.

You would think that Samsung would make a premium phone that combines the best of both wouldn't you. If i was forced to chose one i would probably go the A9 because of 232GB storage space vs just 32GB on an Australian GN5.
