applebites, 02 Nov 2015That's the problem with Android, they cannot fix the lagging problems! I was using Galaxy Nexu... moreNot true. If you'd had bought a Nexus which uses pure android, not the same. It's the side companies that overlay android with their own custom UI that causes the problem. I feel Sense UI does it the best. But, Samsung just sells phones, they don't seem to care about the user experience.
Paragb, 02 Nov 2015Note 5 did not need removable battery & a micro sd card slot to be successful.&Thats a... moreRight... Your logic:
Less features + less options + flawed silo pen storage + fragile glass back + gold color = premium device.
You actually spent $1000 for your phone. My two-year old Note 3 can do more than this.
That's the problem with Android, they cannot fix the lagging problems! I was using Galaxy Nexus to Galaxy S5, but I had enough with lagging. I bought an iPhone 5s as my primary phone, and currently using iOS 9.1 and enjoying every bit of it.
My 2nd unit is Moto G dual (5.1)... Never ever going back to Android Premium phones, I'm not sure if they really know the meaning of "premium smartphone" now a days.
Mick, 02 Nov 2015Was gonna get the note 5 but from previous experience in Samsung devices all there phone lags ... moreNo, there is no fix. Mine lags and doesn't properly do multitasking. Just today twice I had my text messaging on horizontal and turned the phone vertical and it stayed horizontal. I had to back out of the whole messaging.
What a let down. But let's be cool, hip and use Nikki Minaj music while we show that the iPhone can't do wireless charging. Who cares?
Samsung (btw my phone doesn't spell Samsung right) needs to work their market 1st then go for their competitors market 2nd. Duh!
Note 5 did not need removable battery & a micro sd card slot to be successful.&Thats a fact! Who ignorEnt of any one to not understand that!
Was gonna get the note 5 but from previous experience in Samsung devices all there phone lags ~ how's the note 5 performance in this regards ? Have they fix it ? Just checked YouTube reviews and it seems they still haven't fix this issue ! Come on Samsung do u even realise what's going on , now wonder why your sales rate went down by 30% !
Noticing the Galaxy Note 5 commercials again. What it seems to me is they are trying to tap into the hip, cool teenage market with this phone. People drawing xo's, drawing love letter teenage type stuff.
I don't think they are gearing this phone to power users or business users anymore. It's unfortunate but, seems to me that they have Apple love so hardcore that they don't even care about the market that got them here with this phone.
I for one don't need a cool phone, I need a productive phone. Funny thing is: Apple has taken over the high-end market for business/government users for security where Blackberry had it. They already dominated and still dominate the cool teenage market. What's Samsung trying to do with this phone?
H2V, 01 Nov 2015the cpu is octa core not Quad core....It uses big little implementation 4 low powered and 4 high powred cores
which model is the best and which colour i should bye... please suggest me...
H2V - if you read it properly it says that is has Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 AND Quad-core 2.1 GHz Cortex-A57 this amounts to an octo-core
Note 5 did not need removable battery & a micro sd card slot to be successful.and that's a fact.
esc, 01 Nov 2015Everything looks superb...size, resolution, s-pen functionality. BUT not having a card slot is... moreAnd Samsung didn't even offer a 128GB entirely. Once confirmed, I got myself a 128GB micro SD card for my Galaxy Note 3 - not buying something that you have to endure carrying OTG flash drive for more storage that sticks out, or carry wireless hdd with only 4 hours of worked operation connection with its battery. Worse part is Samsung is only offering the 64GB version only in some countries, and in limited stocks.
Note.5 is less of its features than previous generations - let them suffer for this, and it's showing with their layoffs.
Paragb, 01 Nov 2015Note 5 did not need removable battery & a micro sd card slot to be successful.Would have been more useful, and versatile.
Paragb, 01 Nov 2015Wow what a long and boring essay! But why am i dozzing off? LOLProbably because you don't read much.
Everything looks superb...size, resolution, s-pen functionality. BUT not having a card slot is unforgivable in my opinion. Companies will charge you >$100 for going from 32 to 64Gb internal storage when a micro-SD of 128 Gb costs $50 (that´s a ratio of 8X of Gb/USD). Too much for me and enough for making me go with some other less pricey option.
