I still think non-remivable battery is the future we all can't avoid. We all can't possibly hold on to our Note 4 forever for tye sake of expandable storage and removable battery. Even for the last few months most of the new smarthone that are released have non-removable battery. Tye trend keen to go that way. Your wish for removable battery will never happen. Expandable memory may be inffered but that is all it will come to.
Okay, folks, here is the deal. The government of the USA is pushing for all enclosed phones so they can always track you, even if your phone is turned off they can turn it on remotely . If you ever travel to the USA, you will find out the police and customs can make you turn on the phone and check your media. If you do NOT want to be tracked EVER, buy a phone with removable battery and media. This way if you are ever some place where you don't want anyone to know all you do is pull the battery. I am buying the NOTE 4 exactly for those reasons. I wanted the S 6 but changed my mind when I found out they are like Apple now, NO removable battery or SD card. Samsung better watch out, they will lose lots of loyal customers.

With the ushering of the S7 rumors, it is inclined that another sealed battery handheld device is inferred. We will know by January, and then we can all surmise that Samsung will never be going back with removable battery and memory expansion. What folly!
Simulated bejeweled thing over functionality. The LG V10 is mightily is tempting, even without the active digitizer pen. It even has an infrared remote blaster, removable battery, memory expansion and a military-graded drop durability because its back isn't glass.
Note 5..What are the model numbers that supports 4G in india...Planning to buy one from UAE. Plz help
Steve J, 22 Oct 2015Well, it looks like there is a dichotomy within the Samsung Note customers. There are many who... moreYes, I fully agree Steve and I would not be surprised if this was their intention all along. I bought the Note 4 about 6 weeks go and not the Note 5 because I like the removable battery and expandable memory. Now my Note 4 is updated to Lollypop and running beautifully, as one would expect.
Well, it looks like there is a dichotomy within the Samsung Note customers. There are many who have clearly rejected the sealed battery with non - expandable memory option. The disappointment is palpable. One can feel the loud pulse of customers who see it as a betrayal in their trust and a resounding regressive move. Samsung opted for form over function and for the aficionados that is a slap in the face, a low blow, a kick in the teeth!
The solution for Samsung is to revert to the status quo ante and at least offer the next Note with expandable memory and a user - replaceable battery. They can simultaneously retain the fixed battery, non - external battery version; thereby offering two versions of the same phone.
ljames, 21 Oct 2015Not user replaceable. Very big difference. but STILL not having to purchase a whole new phone just to get the battery performance back
you just replace the battery.
AnonD-441601, 21 Oct 2015Well. I must disagree. Warranty on battery ends in 6 moths .Cellphone warranty is usually 2 ye... moreYou should consult with your supplier, all unibody phones have the same warranty period as both battery in the phone, since in this case the battery is part of it.
Connection on the phone also depends on the network. If the area offers moderate reception then phone's signal will be affected. We should also bare in mind that it is not always a device issue cause it might be a network issue. The phone will work depending on how the owner use and handle it.
does it have RAM management issues? as per i saw g4's multitasking better than note 5..is it true? plz help guys
Guys go for Nexus 6P, its great. It has been rated as the best android device till now. Even though I am writing this under a different phone section but truly saying, its much better than galaxy note 5. At the end of the day, you have a make a wise decision.
Guys pls suggest gud one
note 4 or note 5..
Ma choice note 4 bcz
n5 dnt hv sd slot & non removable battery& slippery bk
so confused to buy. ... pls give ur opinion
Sure till s7 launch their won't be any updates of os of marshmallows
But look at lg Sony HTC came with updates but Samsung is in defence mode they need to bring up sales point for s7
But we paid hefty money for note5 but still need to wait till March
Ultimate Samsung person who paid 27k for note 3 neo needs to wait for lollipop but who pays 15k for j7 will get lollipop
nd, 21 Oct 2015Hi does anyone find the signal is weaker on the note 5 then note 4...my Internet looses and my... moreYes u r right 3g signal r weaker. I was using airtel network but signal r weak. But when i inserted d same sim in note 3 then signal r good
Now i m switching to idea
May be problem get resolved
If it wil not then i wil definitely change this handset to samsung customer care or from where i hav purchased
AnonD-424566, 21 Oct 2015Exactly my point.that's what removable battery's are all about.I got 2 3500mah battery's 1 spa... moreAnd don't i see the logic why Samsung is pushing for for sealed batteries. No sense. Anyone with a logical mind say they love the slippery glass back? How they love fingerprints on the device? How great it is that it's more fragile? Just so they can say they have it has incredible "premium" build? How it's so thin, only to put a thick plastic cover to protect it?
A sealed battery is the future of powering smartphone? Unless battery technology finally gives us a new technology that gives more than 3 times the power capacity per volume than the current lithium technology, a removable battery still gives you the fastest way to regain full power for heavy use without the bulkiness.
I'm not stopping anyone from enjoying their fascination of lugging around powerbank/charger/wireless charger pad to charge their sealed battery. Samsung, just needs to bring back this essential feature that makes them as Samsung. It gives people like me better battery management and options.
Me, 20 Oct 2015Simply means ur straining your phone and battery. Turn off your gps when u don't need it. No n... moreWell. I must disagree. Warranty on battery ends in 6 moths .Cellphone warranty is usually 2 years but battery only six moths. After that you have to pay for replacement in authorized service.
So its crap.
AnonD-456605, 21 Oct 2015iPhone battery can be replaced too, just FYINot user replaceable. Very big difference.
TheNeighbor, 20 Oct 2015Yes, with that anti-wall hugger advertisement by Samsung. On the 0:44 part, it shows the iPhon... moreExactly my point.that's what removable battery's are all about.I got 2 3500mah battery's 1 spare and do exactly the same thats if I can run down one in my phone lol.but I can carry the extra battery in my wallet just invade for 3 to 4 weeks and stil have between 98 to 99 percent in battery.nice video there m8ty and a valid point !
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.
