If you want a flashy premium design you buy the 6 edge plus.But why take away features off the note 5.They should have just left a good product the way it was now you got two identical phones with the 6edge plus.Thats what stopped me from getting the note 5. Not a bad phone but i feel like its a step back from what they had.Samsung stop trying to imitate apple you started the powerful phablet don't kill it.
More storage is necesary.With everything in hd and 4k video recording you will need it imagine sonys 23 mp camera on the xperia z5 premium thank god they left the sd slot. Space will run out quickly or you would have to buy another model and as for clouds,mobile data isn't always availiable and you will need bigger data plans and that means more money out of your pocket.
Bhabani, 26 Nov 2015Hello. note 5 has no removable battery and no sd slot.
Has anyone gone mad over this.
O... moreNo removable battery wasn't a deal breaker for me as the note battery life is pretty good (Samsung has gone for looks over features on this).
The lack of storage was what stopped me getting my 5th consecutive Note. 32GB is simply inadequate in today's world of 20MP cameras, 4K video, HD movies etc.
Bhabani, 26 Nov 2015Hello. note 5 has no removable battery and no sd slot. Has anyone gone mad over this. O... morethen you have to keep on your old device forever or go for cheap devices cause you will not find any flagships in future with removable batteries
Hello. note 5 has no removable battery and no sd slot.

One person surely has. Guess who
[deleted post]Sam 941 do you own it, should have thought then, or wait for S7 with memory slot 256 gb. But have any body got warning shortage of space, I have 31Gb full with no fear of space. Very happy plus within months it's half price..

But omitting out the memory expansion, making them more fragile and taking out features does give these so-called "flagship" devices aren't my cup of tea. It's silly that they are producing stuff that fall short of the last generations. And you like it? Sheesh.

Don't give me bullshit like, "Go buy an older model". No harm in buying phone with unremovable battery. Its not like I'm going to use it for hundred years. People will keep changing phone just to stay relevant with todays tech. Break it? No big deal. Damage? Don't care. That is what your job for. To get money and buy stuff. Without those greedy company who are going to make smartphones for us? Nokia? Blackberry? Return to dumb phone then.
Samsung galaxy Note 5 is the best of any phone in the world Right now. Go for it I have Used this phone for 2 months so far not a single complaint from it best battery backup,best gaming experience,best premium design,best camera and everything. Best value for money. previously used (nexus 6) better than it in all aspects. thank you samsung for such a great premium phone. waiting for marshmallow thats going to be released next month as it is a first samsung device to recieve marshmallow update.

Sealed battery means they want you relying on their service centers, forcing you to buy "battery packs", and ultimately subcontiously for you getting a new one every year.
No memory slot means you pay more for more memory capacity.
Even making these "flagship" devices fragile is a wanted thing for you? It's another ploy for you breaking that expensive toy faster.
Fast charging/fast wireles charging - the faster to destroy that sealed battery.
It's a silly shameless trend for these greedy companies to increase profit yearly. And you are agreeing to all of these?
TheNeighbor, 25 Nov 2015Bad analogy. Watches don't need constant charging, like daily. Why are you really want to badl... moreNot only Apple & Sony. Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, HTC, Gionee, Xiaomi, ZTE, Motorola, Asus, Blackberry(Priv), Lenovo, Meizu for example have none of their flagship with removable battery anymore. Name me 10 other brands that still use removable battery in flagship other than LG. You need to realized the game has changed. Your era of removable battery no longer exist. Admit it. You are getting old for this. You couldn't keep up with tech.

Note 5 its an excellent PHONE! not a government super computer,how much storage does one actually need on a phone??? 64 gigs its fine and enough!
sam, 25 Nov 2015No bro Apple iPhone 6s plus load game faster... Apple iPhone 6s plus beat note 5 in speed test... moreApple is class?.... please.... apple still doesn't have a file explorer.... not really a smart phone is it given my Nokia from 13 years ago had a file explorer.
If you are a power user then stick with your note 4 128 sd slot and removable bigger battery (3220 vs 3000 mah) are way more useful then a flashy design. Note 5 isnt really an upgrade as specs are basically the same as note 4. Wait for next note model and see what happens.
Users who use Note 5 are just for fun and fashion. Real and heavy users need card slot and removable battery on phone.
