I'm switching from iphone to note 5. What can i say.. it is the best phone ever! Doesn't feel lag or hang at all. And best of all, the camera. Super crystal clear and sharp! I don't mind if it lack of sd card and sealed battery (cuz I'm used with it with the iphone). But common! There is a ton of powerbank and what called storage otg support idk. Don't make things so hard! I think samsung do really good job in using glass and metal to make the phone looks premium! But overall I'm so satisfied with my note 5 white pearl :)
Sandip D, 04 Oct 2015i have brought Note 5 three days ago, upgraded from note 4. Quite impressed especially the bat... moreIt is true that the battery life in note5 is outstanding.got 6 hrs of screen on time which is way too high for 3000mh equipped with such power house.the good thing is that even the gpu unit pulls considerably lesser power .
The only thing I feel samsung should improve is UI which lacos smooth operation.I used to be htc owner and sense is the fastest UI I ever used.

Quite impressed especially the bat... moreIf you're still using the original Note 4 battery - chances are, it has been degraded and it's holding half of power longevity when it was brand new. It's factual that batteries degrade their ability over usage - it's not a surprise. The Note 4 actually has more battery stamina than the Note.5 - 85H (Note.5) against 90H (Note 4) stamina testing by GSM Arena.
Now imagine the Note.5 degrading NATURALLY after the months later, even faster than ever with fast wireless/fast charging that give that sealed battery more stress and heat that degrades the chemical composition. It loses the ability to hold power. This is not a problem with user replaceable batteries, than fixed ones that you need to pay more with labor cost, and waiting DAYS for it being replaced.
Ren, 04 Oct 2015S6 oor Note 5 please help me chooseFollow yr strongest impression
rhiannexxx, 04 Oct 2015note 5 is fast maybe but iphone 6s is more faster,.. Is it really? Have you tried both? I need to decide which one to get, Iphone6s plus or note 5, I noticed that the CPU on iphone 6s is only dual core while note 5 is octa core. Doesn't the cpu make a difference? Can someone please advise if you have tried both, does the dual core on iphone6s plus is really faster? I need fair advise please, no pro samsung and pro apple, just pure unbias advise from someone who tried both.

Ren, 04 Oct 2015S6 oor Note 5 please help me chooseIf you want 100% control over your phone and not like all Apples products, who's locked and adjusted in advance, not even transfer through Bluetooth is allowed on IPhone, not even from iPhone to iPhone, damn it sucks...then choose the Note 5.

Sadly they took the long press menu away yet again making it harder to be productive. They basically hid the block feature which I used to get to by long pressing also.
every year same design thats sucks i have Note1 and Note3 i was Note fan but no more
i have brought Note 5 three days ago, upgraded from note 4. Quite impressed especially the battery, feels better than note 4 battery not sure if it because the mobile is new. Overall very much impress with note 5 , Spen, performance wise .

absolut-allen, 01 Oct 2015Well then you're lucky. I've had to restart mine several times because my text ringtone st... moreI also have faced the absence of choise to add new coming call to contact list..and long press of any number in call log only give one option ( delete )...so...how I can add any number to contact list ...Also use of S pen became very annoying when you try to crop any part in the sscreensho.it do not let you to adjust the cutting edge ..you have to be right from first touch.also I found the S pen detached from its place..because samy changed the old style of note 4 i.e insertion of the s pen in its place..here the S pen become detatched by click it..which easily occur when the phone is in my pocket
there is no difference here bw note 4 and note 5.it's not speed which matters.it's the innovation and capability which matters in smartphones.but now companies only stuck in better display,camera ect which has already been developed well.smartphones need more battry.they could develope the battry which could stand for two weeks,make the operating system run on less memory,providing some social welfare apps etc.
rhiannexxx, 04 Oct 2015note 5 is fast maybe but iphone 6s is more faster,.. Still any of the latest iPhone can't do multi screen, no digitizer pen, records in mono, and no customization of the UI.
It's great for the simpletons because it's the the best mass device.
Bunyip22, 04 Oct 2015Sorry, i have now used the Note 5 and its the fastest phone available... there is no lag whats... moreAnd they're suggesting we get an OTG dongle - not an elegant solution with it sticking of that micro USB port. More unstable and incidence of wearing out the port. Even a wireless portable storage device would prevent you from accessing data services while connected - only good for 4 hours.
A micro SD card memory expansion is the most elegant way to go, really. Samsung can implement it with their high-end Tab S2s, but not with their flagship smart phones?
