Barking dogs seldom bite, most of us have stopped insisted sd card slot or fixed battery complaints. This is maximum we can agitate. Now everybody will never ever talk about it again. 32gb is more than enough, keeping in view to change within a year, loss of 50% and add another 50% for new model, we lose our total investment. All going to their Kitty!
I personally would rate the note 5 based on users' preference. I personally would consider the note 4 no different from the note 5 unless we compare and contrast the chip set. However, the note 4 is more adjustable than the note 5 considering the memory expansion for those who do heavy activities with their handset. That being said, the note 5 reminds us of an iphone form but with a greater engine running it. Although the note 5 has few treats a little more marketable than the note 4, but to me it is no different from each. The note 4 wins in my view since it is more adjustable than the 5. I am a heavy tech user and the note 5 wouldn't be a fit for me since the memo expansion is limited. Pixel wise, a slight difference. Camera, there is couple of differences. I expected the note 5 to have a superior material, and a waterproof and scratch proof feature. I am surprised that Samsung has not included waterproof, dust, etc features to this brutal beast. If you're going for the note 5, just consider also getting the Iphone 6S Plus.
Marshmallow will bring vanilla android, it will enhance it's ram management and beauty. 80% of Sammy's product s Note plus S series are sold out at 500$ price, this is a perfect strategy to rip customer of earnings, rest if they buy cheaper it becomes outdated, intro of sd card slot and eliminate head phone Jack will revolutionise mobile technology. We can hear with Bluetooth. Its pity in Finland people still using symbian Nokia sets, perfect as fist performance. Only Asian middle eastern are spend thrift. My E72 still in immaculate performance.

- Most efficient Exynos SoC, - Nope, colleague complains of hanging, and even Absolute-Allen keeps writing about it.
- Great battery life - Not for long, and actually Note 4 has even a longer battery stamina by 5 hours.
- Way better design than Note 4 - Fragile glass back? S Pen storage flaw with pen getting stuck when wrongly inserted?
- No heating whatsoever - Hahaha, Parag just admitted it had some heating. And no, you can't expect it working without heat happening. It's thermodynamics.

I just read about a phone from Kyocera that can be wash with soap. What is Samsung doing with theirs? Weird features from competitors keep on appearing. I want the fingerprint sensors at the back at least so then they will have to put metal back cover. Give me 4000mah battery and I will shut up. Give me 256gb internal storage then I have no need for sd slot. Give me 8gb ram then I will not blame touchwiz for lags.

No matter how you look at it, having a fast internal memory, processor and good camera mean little if the past Galaxy Notes were even more capable and less flawed than the Note.5. Samsung should bring back the removable battery, infrared remote control, one-motion S Pen release and memory expansions slot:
*128Gb microSD card at less than $75, than $300 for a mere 32GB more of internal memory.
*Full power in under 90 SECONDS, than "under 90 MINUTES".
*Control most of appliances with infrared control system.
*Double or tripple the power with extended battery, than carrying a powerbank.
*No fragile, fingerprint prone glass back.
*No S Pen storage flaw to speak of.
*No screen freezing to speak of.
*No frequent wifi disconnection to speak of.
And what some would boast about the Note.5 is how it comes in gold, and it's special order for over $1000.

I think note 5 is better than note 3 or 4, whatever any bogus persons may say.

Yes after update battery life is good and screen freezing is gone. But people are looking for expandable memory and removable battery. Well removable battery is old and almost gone. 32 gb is sufficient hope we are not using as a laptops

Personally i prefer the G... moreAlthough the glass back looks nice and premium, I still prefer the Note 3 faux leather with fake stitching. It looks nice and more durable compare to LG G4 leather. Real leather absorb moisture and sweat and tend to smell overtime. I just wish they bring back the faux leather even if it is unremovable. I don't mind at all. Removable battery is not much of a problem anymore for me. I had a laptop with built-in battery that is unremovable so it pretty much normal these day. As for sd slot, I think they will definitely bring it back. I read somewhere they figured out to make sd card works with UFS 2.0 type storage and they now also have 128gb UFS 2.0 storage available. It would be even better if they use 2.5D curved glass on the front for more premium looks.
AnonD-77443, 03 Dec 2015Wifi Direct?... yep... the Note 4 has that too.
The problem with the GN5 isn't about sharin... moreHehe, it seems no matter how they try to defend spending so much that does a whole lot LESS than previous Galaxy Notes, having just the latest processor and fragile glass back are all but a waste.
They have to endure copying and erasing that 26 GB of user space a while lot more often, while we just do some memory management a few times. They think this is the future and norm, while we enjoy so much features.
Bring back the microSD card slot, infrared remote function, and removable battery system, Samsung. Stop losing your real customers.
Bargain Hunting, 03 Dec 2015Not really, because with Wi-Fi Direct you can share or transfer data with other devices faster... moreWifi Direct?... yep... the Note 4 has that too.
The problem with the GN5 isn't about sharing data its about needing to keep clearing your cache, removing apps, videos, pics etc because Samsung is only releasing a 32GB GN5 in many countries. Loving my GN4 with 192GB of storage!
