I mean there are very few touch based games of my Liking that are good on play store, and watching tv shows and movies too much on my Note5 wud not be fair for my TV, DVR set top box and the Lg Xboom Cm9730 Hi Fi Sound system .
I Mainly use Note5 for 1st- its awesome main and front camera 2nd-Music wired or wireless on my Sony Mdr 10 RBT headphones then a few games ,whatsapp, on the go movies downloading mainly blu ray and 3d movies which i watch later on my Tv , lots of on the go youtube videos, screen mirroring, lots of internet surfing, Multitasking and fiddle with it sometimes and lots of other things that i cannot remember rightnow... Lol.i think that is too much of a smartphone for me Lol
The best part is that all of that comes with a PREMIUM BUILT.
I have thing for gold so went with the Gold planimum color but yes almost all colors are good to go with.

I love movies too. Full HD Movies can go between 2 to 4 Gb each.
I also download Audio books, research PDFs, entire books, music, TV shows, and even entire PC programs - almost entirely with my Note 3.
I don't even watch while laying down or on an actual couch... Couch potato, right - I'm out of the house average 16 hours on weekdays. That's couch potato?
Will you even judge me that I have an extra TB of HDD storage on my laptop?

No one watch tv as much as you do except a couch potato. And downloading it proves too much obsession. We either watch it online over wifi or just watch it on tv. That is what tv invented for.

U swap Batteries through out the day and throughout the year, which is exceptional and boring to most /majority of mobile users.
And u store tv Shows in a mobile. 128gb is not even enough for 40 min of 4k video which u shoot. And u always boast for 128gb. As if 128 gb is the total memory reqd in this world. I doubt u MUST be shooting in vga mode to make space for tv shows & watch them on a small screen in which they are not meant to be seen. What an use of galaxy note!!!. Keep shooting in Vga mode. Good for international presentations.

which is expected to get better with the Android 6.0 marshmallow update .
& yes even in my 64gb Note5 i still have more than 30gb free even i do not play lots of huge games on my note5 i play very few Premium games on Note5 .
i mainly play games on my Ps4 and for movies and tv shows i prefer watching it on 42" Lg 3d Led Tv.which is already connected to my high speed broadband connection and HD DVR set top box.
so sometime i feel that even i cud have gone for 32gb model however went with 64gb as future proofing. And the price diffrence was not that much between 32 and 64gb model.

for me If I shifted to note 5 will not suffer!
but mate advice me about the NOTE 5 battery is it good enough as note 4?!

Not even a chance. The point is that you CAN watch them on a 5.7" screen, at anytime, anywhere. I guess you don't do that with your Note? 4K content is 8 to 15GB - you honestly tell us you download stuff and be just anchored to you television at home, or carry a wireless HDD all the time? Really?
Do you use LTE and use 2-4GB of data daily? If you don't know, that takes a lot on battery - which is why I have an extra battery.
What is the use of having a Galaxy Note when you need to turn off your data, turn off bluetooth, worry about power, turn off notifications, not download so much like 2GB like I do, so it can last the day? I don't have to do those things - all I do is change my battery in 80 seconds (and this is for the other readers out there who's interested in my demonstration):
It's pretty laughable in my perspective - having to be limited and worried about battery, and carrying powerbanks and planting chargers everywhere.

I have powerbanks, and I use them to fully charge my bluetooth earset, and extra batteries because they automattically turn off to prevent overcharging - AT HOME.

They carry them just to keep the phone alive long enough until they get home and then charge it properly with a wall charger. That is the idea of using a powerbank.
If one TV show is 10 GB + how much TV shows you will store in 120 GB MicroSD card .10 ? 10 tv shows are everything you want to store in mobile phone.(real crippled phone). My advice is watch TV shows on a 4k TV. it is beautiful . If you want to store the TV shows store it in a 2 TB external hard drives and you can attach it to a TV.
So we can get an elegant phone. But ONE ELEGANT DEVICE is b*********.
Regarding mobiles plugged into walls, it doesn't seem to me as if your body is nailed to wall. I charge my note 5 from 20% to 100 % during 1 hr of Bath and breakfast.
And changing battery DAILY by removing case of a premium phone in 2015 seems most inconvenient , beyond doubt.
Exhausting battery in the middle of the day is an occasional / accidental phenomenon for most
64gb is still more than enough and removable battery is still old school.LOL
There is just no better smartphone than Note5 rightnow.
Bunyup has also accepted that he wud buy 64gn if its available in his country.

Since I consume some 1 to 2GB of days daily over LTE, I can imagine plugging in like 4 to 6 hours with a powerbank if I gotten the Note.5. This is the future of keeping up with the deficiencies of a so-called "upgrade" that's even more fragile with a glass back.
I too have seen colleagues struggling to keep up their charging daily. It's plainly the most inefficient way, charging the spent spare battery at home while you sleep.
80 seconds, people - that's how long it takes to swap a battery with a fresh one, and boot time included.
Way more efficient than carrying a powerbank/charging pad/charger with cable, and waste "under 90-120 minutes" to get a full charge back.
