Note 5 has and note 4 doesn't have the very c... moreFast Wireless charging takes about the same time as plugged in power charging. It creates more heat, stressing the battery more. I tried normal wireless charging before for 2 months only to find out it is more inconvenient, and an accelerated way to shorten the battery's life. It's a silly gimmick - you'll keep interrupting the charging process if you keep picking it up, whereas a wired charging doesn't.
But then I only charge my batteries separately on a cradle charger - way more convenient and efficient, while I get to use my Note 3.I can even do it in my bag connected to a powerbank, while my device is always ready to use in my pocket.
Spare batteries give 100% power after 80 seconds of swapping and boot, while you have to wait "less than 120 minutes" to fast wireless charge to full capacity. So, WTF - you just feel really special with "wireless" charging. Nothing so beneficial.
Reasons why you should buy the NOTE 4 and NOT the NOTE 5
1. You can change batteries quickly. With NOTE 5 if you battery goes bad it will cost you lots of money to take it to Samsung. same as iphone uses do.
2 Most people put cases on their phones so the fancy glass back on NOTE 5 will be covered.
3. If you travel a lot internationally, the customs and police (especially in the USA) can demand you turn on your phone and even look at your data. With NOTE 4 you can take out the battery in about 10 seconds. also the SD card. Which means the police cannot snoop into your phone.
4. Also, many people don't know this but the authorities can turn on your phone remotely even if you have it turned OFF and track you. When I absolutely don't want ANYONE to know where I am, I always pull the battery.
5. These are the reasons that the govt loves iphones users because they are trapped. and now Samsung is doing the same thing. NOTE 4 is selling like hotcakes here in the Netherlands simply for the reasons I just gave. Because it looks like Samsung is going the same way as Apple. Think twice before you get a NOTE 5.
You have been warned.
Guys, wtf like to know use able space after all system files. I. E 32 GB. Cam, cpu, cpu are same of S6. Only 4gb ram. Hardly fee light during useage. What is now price k Dubai or SAUDIA 2200 or less. My experience is reverse best price you get when N6 is launched. Price of N4 is 400$ best. Battery and Use able space is it demerits.

It's funny to see people argue about each companies flagship phones. In reality, every flagship phone is a beautiful, technological marvel that many people in the world can only dream of having. For the commenters saying a $750 phone is junk, trash, etc, you sound silly and should probably refrain from making yourself look immature. I am a bit tech obsessed. I change phones every couple to few months. I started this cycle about a year ago when I stood in line for the iPhone 6 Plus. I had previously owned all the iPhones and numerous Androids and even a Nexus back in the day (in technology terms, of course). I got bored with the iPhone 6 Plus so I took advantage of Best Buys return policy and was able to test the Galaxy S5, LG G3, and the HTC M8. I ultimately decided on the S5 and then after a month I hated how the phone felt. Once you've held an aluminum unibody phone, you'll never buy a plastic phone again. I just got the Note 5 a few days ago and I am in love with this phone. It is beautiful and powerful. It is hands down the best smartphone on the market and with the specs that Samsung packed inside, it is futureproof for the next two years. My only concern about the phone is bittersweet. I love how devices feel without a case. They are beautiful things and should not be covered up with a case. The Note 5 is all glass with a metal frame. I had to buy a clear plastic case because I don't want to damage or scratch the phone. I know this post is too long now, but the Note 5 is by far the best phone on the Market and I don't see any phone knocking it off it's pedestal any time soon.
I think some people obsessed with removable battery should keep 10 spare batteries, hold 5 in one hand and 5 in other hand. They should not hold mobile phones.

Carrying and plugging in a powerbank more inefficient, only be able to transfer 60-70% of its power charge total, at least is 5 times the volume of a spare battery, requires you to carry a bag.
Spare batteries give you 100% power in minute, while a powerbank needs to be plugged in about "90" minutes.
I don't know why people keep defending a BACKWARD-thinking way to replace power. Even buying new batteries yourself down the line gives full efficiency ,"as brand new" after some 300 charging cycles - you should know batteries degrade with their capacities over time.
Amazing. Perfect and beautiful. Just keep away from bad (black) eyes. otherwise everything will be okay. Note 5 is the Best. I love it.
TheNeighbor, 03 Nov 2015Good lordy... Note 3 has 3GB of RAM. Note 4 has IR blaster. Do your research before ranting wrongly.You're right about GN4 having IR Blaster he is also right... He is talking about Note 3 Neo not the normal Note 3

32GB before OS, apps, cache and files doesn't leave much room to play with... whats the point of a super quick, great looking phone if you constantly need to delete data, use cloud or USB OTG ( I will stick with the 196GB storage on my GN4 thanks Samsung)

I am the user of iphone 6, I switched from iphone 6 to note 5 this week.
Whenever I use LTE, IPHONE gets heated up,due to this its very hard to hold in mypocket.
Battery drains very fastly even while using 3G(3 hours cont use approx). I approched Imagine, Their concern is,it happens with iphone while using 3g and above bands.
I would say IOS is best one to experience and could feel that it is built professionally whereas you cannot expect that in Android.
Note 5 is crafted in Metal with advanced camera lens.performance wise it is good however it slightly lags. Other aircommand features are asusual as in note 4.
If you wanna enjoy the feature go for note 5 and if it is something related to status, Iphone is good
Note 5 is the most wanted phone of 2015. Those who want a removable battery, micro sd card and change battery 2, 3 times daily by swiching off phone taking out the back case, puttimg a spare battery,switchimg it on again, cheap textured back, speaker at the back, which is most irritating, Can go for galaxy J7 or note 4.Those who want to come from office and put ur phone on a wireless charger, most convenient, can go for note 5 and u get the best phone. U Can get a wireless 2 Tb external hard disk bcoz. Even 128gb is not sufficient
Note5 duo is again never to be seen, Chinese market is flooded why! Such expensive Phone why not have duo sims. Sammy does not cater to worldwide demand. Gulf golden color flooded. No duo. Let price fall nose dive, very little demand.
