Samsung chip work and technology is good only on paper
TheNeighbor, 07 Oct 2015I download a lot of media, and that 128GB of micro SD card storage where I can use 120GB of it... moreI'm another one... i have 60GB of mapping data for work and recreation.... Cloud data simply doesn't work for this amount of data (or even have coverage in the Australian outback). On top of this I also have a a lot of movies, music, videos, TV shows, photos etc. I don't want a 32GB phone where i need to remove a movie each time i wan't to add another one.
32GB only GN5 in Australia is about the dumbest move i have seen Samsung make.
AnonD-424566, 07 Oct 2015well if there should be a note 6 on the horizon then unless they put back removable battery or... moreI download a lot of media, and that 128GB of micro SD card storage where I can use 120GB of it is so useful.
Only the underpowered users are telling us that the Note.5 is perfect - 32GB version is the only model in most countries.
well if there should be a note 6 on the horizon then unless they put back removable battery or SD card then I'm sticking with my note 3,I have no computer and my 90 full length films and family pics plus apps are on my SD card.my phone is lag free CU's there's 90%memory left.so I don't care if ppl say its the way forward none removable battery and no SD card.you must must be Kidding shortly.its going backwards shortly !
Note 5 is note 5, there is no comparision.
(same is true about iphone also)
Hahaha, thats it, dont compare
Without the SD slot, I'll be looking else where.
The non removable battery I can live with, but no SD slot, Cheers

TheNeighbor, 07 Oct 2015Windows 10, micro SD slot, removable battery seem to be top on my list.Would have been nice to use an x86 processor to be more compatible with what Windows is known for. Using an old ARM processor thats known to be an oven (even with a heat spreader) isn't what I was expecting. I thought Microsoft would finally differentiate themselves from the pack. With their lack of apps, this isn't anything better than what's out there now. Not even close.
AnonD-430264, 07 Oct 2015So what is it that Lumina does that the Note 5 can't? Windows 10, micro SD slot, removable battery seem to be top on my list.
Raj, 06 Oct 2015Galaxy Note5 - No SD slot, Infrared, removable battery, FM though industry leading S-Pen. Nay... moreAnd now the Lumia lineup should be a wakeup call to Samsung to stepping up the game. I'd rather get the 950 XL than a Note.5 because I can do a lot more, plus it will be nice to integrate it with my present Windows laptop, or use the 950 itself as a PC mode.
I have this device for almost 1 month already, overall performance are great.. i found that s-pen is very usefull and also touch screen respond is great (just like any others note series)..
The only complaint is quality of earphone provided by samsung is very dissapointed and also default music apps got a problem very often. It's play but no sound come out.. i use other apps available in play store..

Nay... moreI'm a bit worried about the Microsoft apps though... there are some mapping apps which i dont think i could replace at this stage so will stick with android... will look at Sony though if the GN5/GN6 storage issues aren't fixed.
