Excellent device! Been using for 2 weeks. Dual sim (SM-N9208) and it rocks especially with the Knox. You can have 2 full whatsapp account and dual sim always active! Great size, premium built, nice to hold. The stylus is simply awesome. Battery for once Samsung has improved. Now my 6plus, Passport, Mate 7, is in the drawer. LOL!

Samsung has done it again, offer a poor processor in an overpriced device having a battery far from what size should be necessary. Well done Samsung, your rich fans may buy your devices, but your end is near.
Sealed battery is not a problem. But expandable storage is a must for a phone. Storage needs are increasing day by day. we've to accept that fact.
Other than that, note 5 is a very good device.
Another fact :: I've used touchwiz latest on s6, but samsung's UI is not light. Take the case of HTC, the best UI and it's superfast. I've experience with sense 7, touchwiz, timescape, etc In terms of software and interface, no one beats htc. Not only me, many people agree with this
Thomas, 22 Oct 2015 Now I have Note3. Was waiting for Note5. Few days ago ordered Note4. Thank You Samsung:-)And what a good deal you got. Almost half the price I bought it for (710€, now from 470€)
Nice take on it, but will stick to my Note 4. I want my battery to be exchangeable (though I understand their motivation).

When galaxy s5 launched each and everyone were badmouthing samsung of being cheap and using plastic, having the same old design, blah blah. They used to cry and compare it with the quality of iPhone. And now when samsung paid attention to its consumers, same ppl try to stand against it, and want the plastic back again? Want same old stuff back? Just look at samsungs transformation of S6, S6 edge and Note 5. Such strong and beautiful design language. Enough to compete with Apple and other makers finally for its Design part.
So the summary is that if you dont listen to the ppl u will be bad and when you listen to them u will be worst. Social media and internet is letting each person to badmouth everything as its for free and they wont have any loss. Grow up people. Try to be mature and accept things, not being a cry baby.

You and your ridiculous conspiracy theory about non removable battery is over the top. We wanted this. We asked for it. We despised the cheap plastic built for years. What your problem? Hate much.

AnonD-430264, 24 Oct 2015Let me ask your this:
Remember the whole "Galaxy phones feel so cheap, we want qualit... moreI've already mentioned about this conspiracy of Samsung, deliberately making the whole new sealed battery, with no memory expansion, and a supposed "premium" build just to punk critics to shut up. Look at the non-Samsung user reviewers who make videos about how "great" the build is, yet complain about how much fingerprints get on the back glass, and how slippery it is. It's BS!
Let's just be honest about it and say how horrible and useless the glass back is. These reviewers don't actually use the Galaxy Note as a tool. Not one can confess doing really good art, or users it for jotting down things daily. Not one. All they do is scribble stuff and can review it as a useful tool as I've experienced with it, to produce fine work on the go.
I haven't even heard any of these reviewers contest about the inefficiency and backward thinking are wireless chargers, and sealed batteries. They can only praise about how fast charging is so convenient, but never mention how it's going to ruin the battery faster. It's a distorted view about the market of these smartphones and the mass of people don't know better.
They've even facilitated damage control for the flawed S Pen silo storage, by telling people not to do it... Let's tell it as it is - Samsung f***ed it up. No more icing to that fact.
I just hope this just one giant experiment to make people miss the removable battery, and memory expansion. Otherwise, Samsung need not bother selling high-end overpriced smartphones that are perceived to be lesser than pervious models.
Best and worldclass phone. There is no one point against this statement. Only thing i dont like ( not hate) is (not micro sd and removable battery as u guessed), it is the silver color side metal around the black phone( i hv the black one), it sud have been made a black ascent metal. Silver reflection makes it feel like a J series or E series phone sometimes. Another thing, supplied quick charger takes Only 85 to 90 min for a full charge which is exciting, but phone gets terribly hot, i mean it, raising concern of shortening life( of phone). Using a ordinary charger takes around 3 to 4 hrs but its very cool (phone, as well as your life)
Regarding the quality, of touch, display, perfermance, camera they are just mindblowing
Lastly the back is made of glass so, case is a MUST
TheNeighbor, 21 Oct 2015And don't i see the logic why Samsung is pushing for for sealed batteries. No sense. Anyone wi... moreLet me ask your this:
Remember the whole "Galaxy phones feel so cheap, we want quality phones, not plastic be a use it doesn't feel premium" users outcry we all heard from last generation?
I'm kinda wondering if that wasn't a paid conspiracy to push the Galaxy phones to what they are today. Notice - No more "we need a premium phone?"
That was the case back then. That's all I read was we needed a more premium phone.
What's so premium about THIS phone? You can't drop it. It's slippery. It's an old iPhone replicate.
Seems to me it was all pushed to force us to a certain median that all phones will be soon.

M/s Samsung. .Please think differently for competitive advantages. I am using your product since you launch N100 products and a proud owner of all Note series.
Don't know why am feeling bored with your product design and appealing techniques.
I was waiting for NOTE 5. But now feeling to wait infinitely! !!!

One part is very advanced. Some other part are very far from being developed. You guys really need radio. Don't your country carrier activate the radio function? The hardware chip is always there.
The Radio in my country Indonesia is still very important specially in location without internet access. Hello Samsung!!!, Please make The Note phones having Radio!!!.

Why are people like you insistent with iPhone-sealed-battery status quo is the best? Being a renter of a shiny accessory to show off that has an expiry date with that sealed battery, rather than something you can own for years more? Paying extra things like cloud because of the miniscule amount of onboard storage, or have to endure carrying an extra accessory for memory expansion? Or endure carrying extra weight for powerbank, or having to go looking for outlets to plug in while you're out of the house?
Is this is the future you want? Devices you need to be extra careful because that glass back will break easy? Or you keep reminding anyone holding your device not to Pen the pen the wrong way because it can get stuck that way?
