At the mome... moreLOL. Any self-respecting power user who got the GN4 will waste money on this half-baked excuse of a Galaxy Note. Underpowered users are simply happy with the fragile glass back and call it "premium".
I can't believe that the A series can accommodate microSD cards. The Note.5 is really for people who aren't critical to using it as a tool, and for the vain who take selfies and tell everyone that it's the fastest mobile "rit now".

At the moment only light users are being catered for with the Note 5 only offering 32GB in a lot of countries. At a minimum there should be 64 and 128GB models available.
You only need to check the official facebook page to see how many people are not happy with only having 32GB.

As for me I'm using note 4 for a year & never used an SD card at all & still having more than 10 GB free memory..so i will not face any problem to upgrade to note 5

I really think the S series should be the fashion statement for kids and the Note series for power users with long battery life and the option of 128GB+ storage.....
Itsik, 29 Nov 2015I am betting that you don't need even 20 gb of memory. So it is just wrong feelings. I have 53GB of layered topographical maps alone on my Note 4 at the moment... Some TV shows can push 20GB... Why would I download a low resolution movie/show when I have 192GB of storage on my Note 4?
You can blindly defend Samsung but even a fan boi should be able to see that only offering 32GB of space is pathetic in today's age of HD movies and photos.

It's a short-term solution, accelerating/shortening the charging cycles. "under 90 minutes" to get a full charge heats up that sealed battery a lot more than normal charging. Read about it at battery university dot com.
My swapping the removable battery of my Note 3 only takes me UNDER 90 SECONDS. I can then charge it via a charger craddle, even with a powerbank. My Note practically stays TRULY wireless. Just the other day, I ordered a two extended batteries of 6400mAh capacities in order not to even change batteries at all during my whole day of heavy use. These are the advantages of a removable battery.
Even the Note 4 is more favorable than the Note.5 with its sealed battery. It even has your favorite "fast charging". Flawless? From my colleague who got this half-baked thing, she reports she gets some once-a-week hanging for no apparent reason, and does some hanging when she does multi-windows tasking. Her 26Gb (32GB version only available here) of user space is nearing its fill. She has to carry around an OTG connector to connect her flash drive to transfer or have more files. Far cry from the Note 3 she had lost, as she had a 32GB microSD card extra.
You like the glass back? I think it's terrible that you have to buy a heavy case just to protect it.

Android is used to have workaround always. GN5's battery life is at its best, quick/fast charge is a big advantage, flawless response, best display, best camera, new functionalities on spen, and many more.. we can't always have a perfect phone for everyone since most of us are looking for those "extra features", i 've been from nokia before, and my 3210 still lives up until now, it has no sd card, and no way i can add piece of hardware, but i am satisfied, not because of the phone, but because of its functionalities. we tend to look for features, but we forgot why they are built for, not for showoff, but, to make our families and loved ones at our reach. "MicroSd?", nah, not a big deal, as i always have my dual port flash drive with me, in which i can just connect with my phone, and store all the medias there. for you Sheikha, i suggest try a hands on first on the GN5, and see, check and verify for yourselves.. Cause the phone that you will be having should be the phone you really like, and that phone will satisfy your needs, don't get a phone that is just advised to you or recommended to you by just some people who really doesn't know what you need. so, good luck to whatever your decision would be, and be happy for your new phone. ;)

I've been trying my Note 5 for 11 days the battery lasts only for 5.20 hours screen on time with 45 % of screen brightness I don't know if that's good or not

Dubai also only has 32GB, and that's like the shopping capital of consumerism!
Samsung knows they are slumping in sales of this from the start. It's purposely sabotaging their market. To see how many iPhone users and underpowered users will get this half-baked thing?
Even the color choices has been limited to only two colors in most markets. It doesn't make sense at all. They could sell 64GB versions of their S6 Edge Plus, but not for the Note.5 in my region? Just because the S6 Edge (normal) was more popular, and so they thought the Plus will sells as good? Damn silly, as the Plus doesn't even have the useful infrared remote controller function.
Samsung failed miserably in getting iPhone users to switch - they don't understand that they can't leave their collected paid apps and love of limited functionality of just calls/text/surfing/selfless. They just can't be convinced with "fast wireless charging", nor with just 32GB. They love carrying their powerbanks. They love plugging in to power outlets every 4 hours. They love to hear that the latest processor is ALWAYS 20% much faster than the previous model every 6 months.
But with the Galaxy Note.5, it's:
*We've made the back much more fragile with glass as most will interpret it as "premium".
*We took out that pesky expandable memory because we replaced the internal memory with something that doesn't run compatible with it.
*We give you fast charging/fast wireless charging to run the sealed battery to die faster so you'd buy the latest Galaxy by next year for sure.
*We took out those useful features like infrared for no reason.
