I have been using the Note phones since the Note 2. Key unique selling points were the removable battery and external memory card. At the moment I have about 70 Gigs used on my 32 Gig internal memory /64 Gig external memory Note 4. The Note 5 has a max of 64 G so this means that I can not move all my data to Note 5. Besides this I normally use 2 batteries each day (swap time for the battery is 30 seconds; no fumbling with battery packs). According to me Samsung wanted to copy the sleek iPhone looks, but this was a mistake. I will not move to the Note 5.
Hi does anyone find the signal is weaker on the note 5 then note 4...my Internet looses and my phone signal is weaker any advise..

It didn't mention it took under a minute to change the battery, but I wouldn't be looking for an outlet or lugging around a powerbank that's 5 to 10 times larger, and have my device indesposed for 30 to over an hour while charging.
Here's a demo of how I change the battery:
Notice it took exactly 1 minute to boot down and battery changed under normal movement. By 80 seconds, the entire thing is up and running. I could do it less if I just yank the thing without booting down. This method is exactly 80 seconds than waiting "under 90 minutes" to charge a Note.5. Remember, 30 minutes is only for 50% charging,
You don't see people doing it? Never? Well, not many do this because they don't know. You and the rest think powerbank is the best solution to modern charging because of popularity. It's not the most convenient, and NOT the most EFFICIENT way to top up your device because you got drawn to what iPhone users are doing.
I consume data like crazy without worry of running out of power - as much as 2GB daily. I can consume over 150GB from my unlimited LTE data service monthly, and I can't be bothered to carry a powerbank and hold the two while charging, or stuff them in my pocket bulging. An extra battery is only 5mm thin, WIRELESS and way smaller than any powerbank.
why my note 5 in setting accessories not included how can i manage to speed up my wireless charger.

But there are not many people do it your way. I have never seen people do that at all. Trust me, when I say I never seen it, it really mean NEVER. Removable battery is just not 'a thing' where I came from. If it really is the main function why do you think none of the manufacturer ever advertises removable battery that way? Have you seen Samsung advertisea S5 removable battery? "Oh, look. You can remove the back cover and put in new battery under 1 minute. Amazing feature." -_-
Bought mine 2 days ago and I didn't expect to really love it. I've been abusing it since I laid hands on it and no lags especially gaming. It was supposed to be my back up to my main phone which was an iPhone 6s Plus and it seems there's been a sudden change of course. Glad I bought it.
note 4 is best ..compare note 5 with that..best note of now..not for new for best thing
Note 4 910c ... After setup ditto note 5 v.03 room I can't find any option to hide my installed programs pls help me
Note 5 is one of the best smart phones available in the world, buy it and enjoy impressive experience!!!!!!

I got Note 4, and I realy love this phone, for me it is perfect. Previous was S5.
For new Samsung phones like S6 and Note5, i realy hate design. It is so pore, and copy/paste from Iphone... (vomit)

Turn off your gps when u don't need it. No need for data and wifi to be on at the same time. Clear your ram. Close apps! I have a galaxy s5 soon to uprgrade and it still last all day and I'm a heavy user and the note's battery is better than mine. Your phone company gets u a new phone if it goes bad.

It is not like I h... moreAnd you can just leave the spent battery being charged in your bag with a power bank, while you can use the device - UNPLUGGED/WIRELESS. You still need some 30 minutes to charge 50%. Under 90 minutes for 100%. Yeah, I get 100% in one minute of swapping.
Another gimmick is the wireless "fast" charging. "120" minutes to charge. Again, I get 100% in one minute of swapping. 60 seconds versus 90 minutes, 60 seconds versus 120 minutes. Wow, and you don't like that 1 minute because you're too lazy to swap and rather bring powerbank/wired charger/charger pad all the time if you're a heavy user?
Why is it too difficult to get it? It's an option, more possibilities like extended batteries instead of a powerjacket case that doesn't even give another 100% power instantly. You can still carry a powerbank if you want.
This is the future of charging? More than an hour of charging and carrying accessories that's like 5 times the volume of a spare battery? Sure, it still take some 2 hours to charge that spare battery, but that happens when I'm asleep, and my Galaxy Note stays wireless and unplugged during my waking hours.

And while walking, it will be in my bag. Oh, I know you are a guy but most women do carry power pack inside their handbag and some men do wear satchel these day for your information. Some power pack even fit into a straight wallet if you haven't noticed. It is low power but more than enough to get you through the night. Its not like you are camping for a week outside.
