I would lo... moreDude I've got nothing against you, i understand ur situation that u do not even have the option of 64gb ..so i understand ur frustra.tion there.I've said this previously as well.
So u dont really have to be ru.de and call me blind or make any ne.gative comments abt me.
The thing is the note5 just fits in all MY needs of a super smartphone and its made exactly how i wanted it to be ( more premium slim design + best usefull hardware specs).I only had 1 issue the IR blaster thing but I've got a cheap solution for that as well . so i am just rocking with my note5.
The slim and se.xy design the sharp screen and the camera are just awesome.battery life is also very good.
BTW I still have more than 35gb free out of the 64gb sometimes i feels that i cud have gone for the 32gb model but hey! that's just ME.
& the irony of the situation is like this-> there are more users like me. There are very less users who needs 128gb storage on there smartphone likewise there are very less users who needs to remove there smartphone's battery to change it.
Bottemline it might not be perfect for few users but its just perfect for major users.

I would love a Note 5 but i'm not going from 160GB storage in my GN4 to 32GB storage in an Australian GN5.
The fact that the Note 5 doesn't allow you to expand the memory with a micro sd card will stop me from upgrading to Note 5. When I purchased the Note 3 it was a 16GB and after adding apps and pictures and some videos I was out of Memory within 3 months. When I purchased My Note 4 I purchased it with 32GB and I added another 64GB card I want the option! The extra charge for the phone on Memory is ridiculous! It's a shame you cant remove the battery also! I love my Note 4 it is the best! I know a lot of people who will not upgrade now to the Note 5!
You also need to offer it in the Rose Gold color again with Verizon!
Thanks, EJM in OHIO
I updated from s4 to note. controlling the TV was the most exciting feature to showoff to frnds and family. But it was missing in note. Please get it back

There should have been NO compromises at all. Just the fastest processor, best camera, great S Pen, memory expansion, everything portion previous Notes, and back that isn't glass.

Apple is great but Apple supplier is the greatest which is Samsung. I don't blame them for being like iphone. It could be iphone being more like Samsung too.

... moreYou do realize with the hardware of the Note 5, with custom smooth multitasking software that has tons of features you don't need to get from the Playstore + what they took away from the Note 4; this could be one bad ass phone.
No need to try to be an iPhone.
Unfortunately someone at Samsung has an issue. Throwing millions of dollars at Apple, making it rain like a rap star in a strip club.

AirView was something I use as for previews for mail, videos and pictures - and they took it out since Note 4. But you already know the disappointments of the Note.5's hardware and flaws.

They think they are going to make a phone that's like an iPhone and pull customers away from Apple. They sabotaged their own customers with features that Apple didn't have to try to be more like them? This is an Android system for one, and two; Apple users love their phones.
So what do we do? We make a phone that Apple already has done (glass back). We throw out multitasking that doesn't work in the real world. We create great specs, what exactly uses it?

Swipepad looks to be an app that I can get in the Playstore. Aftermarket apps aren't phone features. The features built in this phone are broken.

With SwipePad, I can I can swipe to contact shortcuts and app launches with up to 42 icons PER trigger set, triggered from 9 different corners or sides, anytime and anywhere I need to.

There are a few areas where you can hover your pen over like say a url link and it'll show a preview. All in all a very generic, doesn't work in most apps. There is also a nice delay when you do hover over a link. I've done it in messaging without much success. Some links previewed while others didn't.
Not sure how you're going to win over IPhone users by building a generic android version of it, that's only features separating it are buggy as hell and not that useful?

Noticed how Samsung is still making commercials trying to belittle the iPhone to hopefully attract their users. Why?
IPhone users are a "different market!" Why obsess over their buyers to the point where you sabotage your own market?
Samsung should have catered to its own sector of buyers by giving them the thing that makes its phones different. You had the SD Card, IR Blaster, removable battery, S-Pen, awesome Super Amoled screen. THAT'S what attracted their market.
The geniuses at Samsung decided to try to be more like the iPhone instead of tweaking their own phones for their market. So I have an expensive iPhone wannabe with an S-Pen and a ton of bugs. If this is some brilliant way of enticing users of iPhone, instead of focusing on your own buyers; someone didn't learn anything from their marketing 101 class.
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.
