PARAG B, 09 Nov 2015It does not matter to samsung if they lost there few 1 or 2 % customers who wanted the sd card... moreAgain, where are you getting YOUR statistics? What basis is that "98%"? This is your pure baseless speculation.
53% of smartphone users surveyed want to have removable battery:
Barely 11.5% are OK it without micro SD slot.
So therefore, your "98%" theory of people who don't care about memory expansion and removable battery is totally fabricated by YOU.
So why are you still carrying a powerbank and wireless HDD? Why do you still need more power and memory storage if you don't care about more battery or memory expansion? It's so contradicting, and so hypocritical.
I agree with all of you who saying note 5 is better than note4. But I personally need sdcard slot. So I won't update. Even if note 5 has some advantages in speed and looks, software etc. for me note 4 wins all in all.
It does not matter to samsung if they lost there few 1 or 2 % customers who wanted the sd card and removable battery than the major 99 to 98 % customers who wanted the Note5 for what it is today.NOTE5 WINS.

Note 5 did not need a card slot and removable battery to get great sales.NO other smartphone can beat this beast rightnow.
I want ONE DEVICE, (A crap phone , a spare battery , a craddle charger ,a micro sd card). And yes the phones back cover must hv bcoz loose and weathered by removing and attaching twice daily regularly.
I m sorry I don't want this I was kidding. I hv note 5

Kinda ridiculois actually because one card slot can only hold 128gb. Why not make one sd card slot that can hold 2TB like the one in LG phone? Though, Saygus V2 do have higher spec than Note5 in some aspect.

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.
