AnonD-77443, 08 Dec 2015I'm thinking the "haters" wouldn't be hating if the GN5 storage space wasn't such a downgrade.... moreI'm still at a loss at what was Samsung (designers and executives) were thinking when they decided to put this half-baked thing with 32GB being sold to most regions, and NOT launch in Europe this year.
And we have these people who are underpowered users only satisfied with such 25GB user storage spaces, and be telling us how it's enough. I guess they don't have much to do with a Galaxy Note other than to flaunt how they got a rare 64GB version for $1000, on special order. That's still nothing without being able to use your current 128GB microSD card.
Now with Note.5 features being on Note 4 after an update, Note.5 has become even more LESS significant. I'm just laughing at some people regarding the Note 4 as some budget phone. Clearly these are some who like some distorted sense of status with an object, rather using them as tools.
AnonD-183089, 07 Dec 2015sure it will be nice upgrade from note 2 & note 3 but not for haters :DI'm thinking the "haters" wouldn't be hating if the GN5 storage space wasn't such a downgrade. The fact that a 3 year old Note 2 can have 4 TIMES the storage space of a 64GB GN5 is poor form and Samsung shouldn't be surprised by the "hate".
I don't hate the GN5 i'm just really disappointed that the largest amount of storage space i can get in a GN5 is 25GB after the OS is installed.

AnonD-183089, 07 Dec 2015sure it will be nice upgrade from note 2 & note 3 but not for haters :DNote 2 - 16GB with MEMORY EXPANSION of up to 200GB
Note 3 - 32GB with MEMORY EXPANSION of up to 200GB
Note.5 - 32GB with NO MEMORY EXPANSION - zilcth, nada, non-existent, not happening.
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2015Okay. I agree this time. Just because the new update made Note4 into a a more powerful Note5. ... moreThe only thing I really like with the upgrade is the Off Screen Memo - but this could be easily carried over with an installer. The Note 4 is even more suited with it not having the pen silo design flaw - you can't put it back the wrong way and gets stuck. This is obviously the biggest mistake next to the rear fragile back of the Note.5. Another thing about the "new" S Pen is that clicky end would pop out while in your pocket, as confirmed by reviewers and my colleague who uses this half-baked thing - numerous ocassions.
S Pen on ALL the previous models do not pop out for no reason. There are so many reasons why not to get the Note.5. It's like they fired the original Note designers, and had some new guy who used to work at Apple to design this.

rony, 07 Dec 2015Even a full HD video recorder consume 1 mb/sec, so a 4K recorder surely be a huge memory kille... more1st of all thanks for using civilized words, Lol i just cant belive that i had to say tanks to someone for being civilized here Lol. but what to do man! some hypocrite ppl here just go mad and will use bad & rude words here and moreover they will tell you that "u sud talk properly to me even if i talk like sh*t to you" Lol.
Anyways coming back to ur point yes i know that there are plenty ppl who wud want the micro card slot on there smartphones .Even i had note3 with 32gb internal and micro sd card slot with it, if i wanted i wud have bought a 128gb card and used it but No i bought 32gb card as i do not need 128gb but again that does not mean that iam saying that everyone does not need 128gb card , but the thing is that you cannot deny that there are lots of ppl who do not need more than 32 or 64gb on a smartphone.
Moreover if i compair my Note2 & Note3 with My Note5 only for memory department i feel happy that i got 64Gb INTERNAL memory with Note5 , cause internal memory is always better i mean the micro sd card i use to have with my Note2 & Note3 i had a big limitation like you cannot install the entire app data on the external sd card if u wish to.
plus,not much but sd card use to also make my Note2 & Note3 slow a bit. I can tell this for sure as Note5 is às fast as farrarri in app opening speed plus the gallary app also works like charm which was not the case with my note2 and note3 and no matter what app you open it open fast and works flawlessly if I compair it with my previous note2 and note3 .
well, i know that i sud not compair the two old devices with the new one but I just thought that i sud share my experince after upgrading..but yes even i agree that for ppl who need 128gb or more mem sud have got note5 with 128 gb in built or a sd card slot but just like you for me as well 64gb is more than enough on a smartphone.

So what's the use of its 4K video and many more other premium features. Whatever you say buddy 64 gb fixed memory is a way too low for a phone/phablate like note 6. I know it's more than enough for me but plenty of people are there who needs much more than this. You can't deny the point. It should have a 128 gb version otherwise a card slot.
What's tthe catch, on Marshmallow 6 seeding to N4, than N5, an error fluke or reality. Hurry to break the ice!

Anonymous, 07 Dec 2015Okay let me just tell you this about the z5premium....
Snap dragon 810 is NOT cheap in fact... more1) I am not saying that sd810 is dirt cheap but in compaired to Exynos 7420, sd810 is considered very cheap more over the price sony kept for Z5P is too much for the kind of hardware they are providing.
2) Even super amoled screen can support waterproofing do you not know about S6 active,
3) 64gb internal is twice better than 32gb internal memory.
4) OS on Note5 is as good as the one on Z5P .
Now who's facts are not clear here?
Lol. U are just blindly supporting Sony .

But yes Note5 is the most powerfull and advanced smartphone one can get rightnow.i.e the prices are also not going down soon for note5 the way it was use to go down for the previous Note series models. Samsung really upped the smartphone game with G S6 Edge + & Note5.

OMG, Note 4 even more useful than ever!
With removable battery, infrared remote, memory expansion and an S Pen storage that doesn't have a design flaw. Samsung should start producing more Note 4 now!
Save that $1000 from being spent on a downgrade! Keep your Note 4!

But yes i understand there is very long time to wait.
But if u are not on budget and if u can get ur Note4 sold for a good price then i guess u wud be able to upgrade to note5 soon.
