Did you hear the so... moreThey have limited the 64GB version to only some countries, and majority only sell the 32GB. Another theory to increase cloud service usage and to increase battery usage so you'd need to keep using them "Fast" chargers to kill that sealed battery faster. They want you using more data service to increase the telcos revenues.
The ordinary user just want that shiny new toy that they think celebrities use -"Ooo... platinum glass back." They need that to relate to status quo.
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2015As the battery is non removable, how useful is it to carry a spare battery...?Obviously, this thing could have been more useful with a removable battery system. Sealed battery cannot give you options, and is a factor in making sure you keep charging to shorten the battery cycles- killing that sealed battery faster with "fast" wireless/wired charging.
Samsung is mimicking Apple to make us become renters rather than owners of our devices. You like going to the service center and spend more money to just replace the ruined battery? That used to be just an iPhone problem. Sealed battery is a backward implementation.
Apple did this because Jobs want you coming back to service that fancy phone, and most people won't bother replacing that sealed battery and buy the latest model.
I would like to seek your opinion? Which is better Asus Zenfone 2, or this phone?
May I ask? I am a student and looking for a phone. I came up with 3 choices: Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Asus Zenfone 2, or OnePlus 2?

Did you hear the song with the Samsung commercial showing how Galaxy can wirelessly charge but iPhone can't?
It went something like:
Pure garage baby speak. This is how you represent your phones? And why are we showing S6 Edge + in the same commercials as Note 5? Supposed to be different phones serving a different purpose.

It's more pratical to just connect the wired charger directly. You're right though, the iPhone users will be drooling over wireless charging and be bragging like "it just took me 90 minutes to charge my battery", while not being able to make calls.
These celeberaties Samsung endorses are actually iPhone users. Look at Minaj with her iPhone: http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/mp/Bq8gIxviUD2l.jpg
This too goes with LeBron James, Becham, DeGeneres... This is counter to the whole idea that Samsung devices are being used naturally by famous people - they keep using iPhones because they just do underpowered things with their phones. They are the ones who don't complain about the 1.2MP camera they keep using for selfies, while Android phones are rocking 5MP front-facing cameras.
Big fail, Samsung marketing department!

I'm not opposed to wireless charging but, it's not going to drive iPhone users over to Android. What else does Samsung offer? Well, broken multitasking and no updates. That's where my Note 5 will stay (people aren't interested).
It's trying to create an iPhone presence with a pen so people can draw silly love sayings or draw hearts? Where your business/power user market that you created the Note with? They are looking at non Samsung phones now. Great marketing there.
Well it's beautiful built phone, but hardware is big disappointment not possible expanding, there is few reasons the note2 offers better usability believe that.
Posting again bcoz u may not hv not read
I use a wireless charger one at office desk and one at home. While on the road I don't need a wireless charger bcoz I hv to enjoy the roadside scenery . I never get less than 60 % charge on my note 5. It's so relaxing just to drop your phone on a plate like thing and watch TV or get a bath. U forget about charging or SWAPPING batteries. Just drop or simply put the phone. And its so irritating to remove case remove batteries , keep few spare batteries, carry them that wireless charging is thought as the future of charging.Wireless charging produces less heat than fast plugged(100% in 1 hr) charging.Note 5 has and note 4 doesn't have wireless charging built in. Note 5 has the speaker on bottom so u need not worry about which way u should place ur phone while listening to music. So note 5 is better.
I'm sorry it's the best
I got this as a bday gift to myself last september. It is really the best! Great camera. Great phone for multitasking. Fast charging. Really, the next is now! :)

A colleague showed me an Asus Zenphone 2 for half the price of this, and it was pretty good - oh, I just wished it had a digitizer pen. Yes, the Galaxy Note line was suppose to be for tool, than a shiny showing off item that does less. Samsung needs to straighten up before more hipter people just buys it because it's expensive and hip for teenagers.
Samsung note 5 . I want
Finally bought Titanium 32 version. I class of itself, in master piece. The dofferance is nothing as side by side to J7. Where is extra points camera or smoked same. But price 650 $ sums up. 920C.

paxi indi, 04 Nov 2015Dear any one using note 5 please tell me about battery backup in daily use...urgent i m planni... moreThe battery back up was okay but one thing you you need to know is charging the battery. If you use Samsung fast charger it will get 100% in 1.5 hours rest of chargers take 5 to 6 hours of time and power bank too have the same issue.
