[deleted post]Fragile? Doesn't stop people from buying it. Look at glass back in Xperia series. Even Oneplus X is adapting to use glass back. There is also the ZTE Nubia Z9 and Huawei Ascend P7 doing the same thing after seeing Galaxy S6. Even before Samsung, Lenovo used it in S850. Face it, they need to change in order to survived in the tough market that sees plastic as a stigma.
PARAG B, 11 Nov 2015Drop tests says otherwise Another lie.One of the first few Youtubes I watched says otherwise:
Do send us a link to that "drop test". I'm really interested.
I'm gonna make an honest compare......First Display:both 6splus and note 5 are really good but the screen on note 5 is defenitely better.....Camera:Note 5 is way better in features even though there is live photo in iphone but in quality you can hardly tell wich one is better.....Performance:both are really good but 6splus is more stable thanks to ios.......Battery life:Most of the people i asked said the battery life on both phones is almost the same but we have power saving and U power saving and wireless and fast charging on note 5..........Software:ios9 is more limited than lollipop but it's lighter and faster and you can't change themes on 6splus as you can on note 5.....Both have a unique feature 3d touch on iphone amd S pen on note 5....Design:Both phones are good looking but note 5 is more comfortable in hand and more compact despite the bigger screen and lighter but 6splus is much more resistant and stronger.......mobile payment is better on note 5......Total:Is is really based on your taste...Me?i personally like note 5 more
PARAG B, 10 Nov 2015Yes, he is almost every 2 to 3 mins continuously! & with a very bad attempt of looking int... moreApparently he wakes up every day and repeats himself over and over again. No removable battery / no SD card slot... yeah we get it. Note 5 is a powerhouse. Just ignore anything from TheNeighbor... don't waste your time mate.
TheNeighbor, 10 Nov 2015Hey, some people actually spent over $1000 just to get a limited "pre-order" 64GB version, and... moreHdd?why would I bother to bring an HDD. Phones are built for portablity adding extras is way more inconvenient for me. Id rather choose a big storage than bring extra hdd..its my forst time to hear a wireless hdd.. in that case it will just drain more battery juice,and note 5 battery is unremovable so additional powerbank is needed,hell no I just spend 600bucks for half-baked phone?I can have a descent laptop at that range.Note 5 looks good but not perfect. Maybe note 6 will have an sd card and samsung will advertise it like it didnt happened in the history of phone.
sammy, 11 Nov 2015bro in display section you said note 5 better but please first you use Apple iPhone 6s plus di... moreScreen on ip 6s plus is of lcd which is way dated but we have S AMOLED on Note5 and dont dare to call it oversaturated if u really have note5 go to screen mode and change the color settings to basic or whatever ur preference is.
Miko, 11 Nov 201564gb on note 5 is not available in my regionYeh i know its not available in every region and that is sad.
hey note 5 have a serious problem screen freeze
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2015Yes no doubt this is a good phone but Be prepared to buy extra power banks or trip to Samsung ... moreI have already got few good power banks.and a wireless charger which is very easy to use plus note5 gives very good battery backup and with power saving mode it becomes even more better. And i am not talking abt ULTRA power saving mode here ..and as far as replacing the battery i guess i wud have to do it in may b 3 or 4 years later so i am not worried abt that ritnow.
sammy, 11 Nov 2015bro in display section you said note 5 better but please first you use Apple iPhone 6s plus di... moreYou can change the oversaturated screen in the setting. In example, the Galaxy S6 maxes out the screen's brightness, and reaches the excellent 563 nits, at the expense of color accuracy. In my view, this sacrifice is warranted, for a color-inaccurate display that is visible outside is preferable to an accurate one that you simply cannot see due to reflections and insufficient contrast. There are several mode for the display such as 'adaptive mode', basic, amoled cinema mode, amoled photo mode. Some modes are agreeably oversaturated and some are more prefered accurate color. Choose the 'Basic' mode for color accuracy if you like iphone so much but still want a superamoled display.
sammy, 11 Nov 2015bro in display section you said note 5 better but please first you use Apple iPhone 6s plus di... moreI might complain about the Note 5, but; when it comes to the screen it's not happening. Not saying iPhone doesn't have a clear screen - it doesn't have the vibrant bright colors that I feel are needed in a screen of this size.
Samsung wins in optimal screen viewing in this instance. I've seen them both. Friends have the new iPhones.
PARAG B, 11 Nov 2015Sure iphone 6s plus is good however it is almost like the Z5P big and with huge bezels plus th... morebro in display section you said note 5 better but please first you use Apple iPhone 6s plus display and I bet you are full satisfied with iPhone and also you know the iPhone have better display .. IPS LCD is best in every section .. IPS LCD display show real life colour its not oversaturated
sammy, 11 Nov 2015I glad to owner of both phones.. firstly I tell you about the battery, battery backup of iPhon... moreSure iphone 6s plus is good however it is almost like the Z5P big and with huge bezels plus the camera in low light is better and comes out with great details even in night time on note5 compaired to the iphone 6s plus .the screen on note5 is also better than the one on ip6s plus and ipone 6s plus cant do multi tasking properly nor it has wireless charging .
the note5 is available at a much affordable price tag for 64gb model and last but not the least now THE NOTE5 also screams PREMIUM.
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2015Or at least bring back 64GB and 128GB phones... I hope to see 256GB internal memory smart phones by next year. If Samsung had came out with minimum 64GB, and up to 256GB internal, it would sell better, along with retaining the removable battery option.
Sytijinx, 11 Nov 2015Bring back the card slot!Or at least bring back 64GB and 128GB phones...
