There is one smartphone that I heard of having 2 micro SD slots. One 128GB micro SD card has about 120GB usable space, then 4 x 120GB = 480GB. It can practically hold all of my CURRENT movie and TV series collection on a 500GB HDD, and safely with solid-state memory than mechanical spinning HDDs. I'd just have one elegant device to carry than having to carry an extra wireless HDD.
Bunyip22, 08 Nov 2015No doubt, the GN5 beats the IP6+... however i'd take the Z5P over the GN5 based mainly on 232G... moreI had a good look at the latest Sony had to offer. Z5 series is awesome in its own right, and really was considering since it has that covetted micro SD slot we need.
See? The underpowered users are telling us we should be carrying wireless mechanical spinning HDDs that have power that last 4 hours. Imagine walking around that thing on - good bye HDD. They don't seem to understand the concept of how a mechanical spinning HDD has a needle. Yeah, we should listen to them so we should constantly endure deleting and copying files most of the time...
It'll be like having a Galaxy Note 4 with a 32GB internal and ONLY a 32GB micro SD card inside. Ew. I'm so glad I don't have to carry around a 1 or 2 TB wireless HDD just to boast I have all my (soon to be gone) data acessed on my phone, that needs to be still be powered around with a powerbank. Imagine that - carrying all those extra acessories just to have data storage space to augment the 32GB internal space. It's just so opposite to having the just a 128GB micro SD card and one elegant device to carry.

Z5P is not so good in night time or low light photography.It also does not have OIS
It is like a brick with has a boring same design with huge bezels With 5.5 inch only screen Note5 has 5.7 inch in a very compact size.
I already have upto 1 tb storage wirelessly plus out of 64 gb i still have like over 30gb free.

Even Samsung CEO said "If we resist changes, then we won't survive". They know themselves that they have trouble. I hope GS7 will bring changes as he said.

Please FIX THIS STUPIDITY SAMSUNG!!
All the speed, features and looks mean little if you need to use cloud, USB OTG and keep deleting files to make more room.
Wireless charger has a wire but we don't hv to tangle with it. Those who want to mess can go for old fashion charger or search for a phone with 2 or 4 micro sd slots or if this is less messy go for spare batteries.
Others go for note 5
Note 5 is the KING of all smartphones rightnow .NO Z5P or NO IP 6S+ can beat this beast.There is NO bad ram management or no lags what so ever and the best part is that the main and front camera both are all rounder.
Z5 beats note5 all the way very clearly:)
We can read Z5 vs note5 vs iphone 6s
Tech Times review
Convenience is the way today. Wireless charging is so convenient just drop phone on a plate like thing, that anyone will be happy except few old fashion people. It produces heat but fast charging also produces much heat. It replaces irritation of tangling cords and searching for correct side of a 5 mm structure like micro USB charger. I have not read any case of shortened battery life due to wireless charging. But note 5 is just out so costly So we can go for lava phones or xoxo phones or note 3 they have all inconveniences as wanted by some they also hv a micro sd slotslot. Some phones may have 2 micro sd slots but we hv to search them
ahmed mousa, 07 Nov 2015kindly advise note 5 or s6 edge plusgo for note 5 because of it stylus S-pen. its really good and awesome

I'm iOS user and than note 5 come.. I buy one month ago 64gb gold version.. First week its performance superb but after they show poor performance
1. Slightly laggy
2. Poor ram management
3. Display freeze
4. Show lag in GTA San Andreas
5. Battery backup not so good
6 back covered with glass its fingerprint magnet
8. Only s pen is good
After one month I sold this and bought a Apple iPhone 6s plus its so fast and camera is also superb 3d touch is so helpful in camera section or to open a direct link.
Feel so premium in hand.... No lag smoother performance... Plz don't buy spend 150$ more and buy apple iPhone its superb...
PARAG B, 08 Nov 2015Wireless is the way to go.!Hehe... Yes, I too am a fan of wireless connections - SideSync, Bluetooth earsets, Miracast, NFC, Wi-Fi Direct,but not "wireless" charging.
Even fast "wireless" charging is as the same amount of time as normal wired charging - it just has an expensive extra pad. It produces more heat, thereby reducing the battery's longevity.
Yes, another one who drank Samsung's advertisements - just the type they want to spend more money. The uncritical, complacent, and vain.
This is review site of galaxy note 5. This is not place to argue that being confined to one place is underpowered or wandering is overpowered. Watching videos in mobile good or E books is good. Any way 32 gb or 128 gb either is a very small portion of our total need
Note 5 is more powerful than note 4 with less lag and less bloatware
But true is ssd are good .better
Bunyip22, 07 Nov 2015Sorry but only releasing 32GB GN5 with no SD card is a lot of regions can only be classed as a... moreThe underpowered users are actually suggesting we start carrying wireless HDDs. Their point can actually could work if the wireless HDD has a solid-state harddisk than one spins mechanically and the internal battery can last over 12 hours han a mere 4 hours. But hey, having just one device is all what we need with an 128GB micro SD card.
bhabani, 07 Nov 2015Whatever, galaxy note 5 is a really beautiful phone and. Successful too. Anybody Can check re... moreYup, this is the type of customers Samsung is trying to target - the easily impressed, underpowered user, impractical and the uncritical in thinking.
Arguing that 32GB internal memory enough, but bringing along accessories like an ENTIRE wireless 2TB HDD (that only has 4 hours of power per charge and endanger thousands of files to being lost) what should be, wow - the point of you arguing that I watch so much video everyday is surpassed by this guy. You should NOT even be boasting that you carry around 2TB just to have to carry your "true" total storage needs and access them.
I have 3 external portable 2.5" HDDs and one 240 SSD (which is the only one I carry if I need a bigger portable storage space) and do not carry any of the spare HDDs while out of the house because for the obvious possible accidental drop that can destroy an entire HDD instantly. My portable SSD is much more safe from accidental drops:
Again, swap batteries in about 80 SECONDS is better than having to wait "within 120 minutes" to wirelessly charge. I only reboot once in 24 hours. I carry only one spare batteries than plant wirtess chargers that are SO much more ineffecient. They are efficient to you because you are an underpowered user. Do you make it as a hotspot that you can consume 2 to 6 GB of data daily? Do you turn on keep your data service/bluetooth/NFC? Do you constatnly connect your portable wireless HDD all the time? Well, I can do all those without worry of running to a wireless pad charger in the office.
Another thing is I, unlike you, is not in one place in extended length of time. So I don't have to keep looking for power outlets to have to plug in an impractical wireless charger - I actually have that in my Note 3 with an S wireless charger cover. I tried wireless charging for 2 months, and never used it since. I just like the cover because it give it a flatter back that doesn't wobble.
So, in conclusion, Samsung has really done it with their marketting targets - people like this with money to spare, and who doesn't consider the Note series as a tool, but rather something shiny to show off.
And no, Samsung has failed to make a bigger profit than before - thanks to financial reports than popular reviews (you mentioned) with superficial critique and focused on the exterior looks. No one emphasized the fact that it has a fragile back.
