No memory card slot, non removable battery. This is a piece of crap for me.
I finally ran into someone with a Note.5. She had it with an Otterbox heavy case (Defender) because she said it's such an expensive fragile phone at some $860. She's not aware of the S Pen silo design flaw.
Anyway, she got one because her Note 3 got lost. I asked if she'd recommend it - no because it was limited with the 32GB. She never expected it being without a memory expansion. She loves that gold color alluring.
Anonymous, 09 Oct 2015Does the front camera shoot in 4k too?The front cam shoots in QHD resolution as max it gives lots of details plus i do not think that there is any other smartphone in the market which even supports the QHD resolution from the front cam i guess only note and s6 series flagship smartphones has it for now.

Samsung has dumped what its costomers /note users needed (options, micro sd and removable battery). Now its just an apple copy then why don't buy an iphone instead.

While Sony And HTC Has 8+ Megapixel Front Cam And Until Now Samsung Has Not Learn (COPY) From Others How Is This Possible :P
BTW No Dual Sim And No Memory Slot Makes NOTE5 More Disaster If We Compare :P
AnonD-77443, 09 Oct 2015Careful... PARAG B will be here soon to blindly declare that the GN5 is perfect.
I would lo... moreHmmm, after getting used to 120GB of extra storage , and finding it convenient for loading a lot of entertainment files and less deleting them, I too could never think of settling for of merely 15GB of extra space on my Note 3.
I was on the fence on getting the Note 4 before, because I saw only little features for my needs, and looks like I'll just stick with this till we see what Note 6 can bring to the table. Meantime, Microsoft is getting my money for the Surface Pro 4.
AnonD-77443, 09 Oct 2015Sorry, didn't mean to be rude..... just geeing you up :-)
Had a play with a mates GN5 and i... moreOhh! Alright No problem Dude :) even though i do not need lots of storage but i still agree that samsung sud have given a 64gb and 128gb in all regions and why not the iphones have that so did the G S6 and S6 edge so why not note series.
May b samsung thinks that even the users who actually need 128gb or more will buy the 64gb model just sayin.
But for Me 64gb is really more than enough and
Yes the phone is really fast I just love the double click of home button to start the camera, it starts very fast even if the phone is locked.
Only If u can settle down to 64gb model try and get one imported from a nearby country where its available
Go for it only If u dont really worry abt the warrenty and know a realiable source to get the Note5.
Best of luck.
Note 5 is a disappointment only 32gb memory with no expansion my note 3 is 32gb with 64gb car over 50gb combined data SamsungÂ’s gone backwards going backwards.
There needs to be a 128gb version or bigger made available there no excuse to have just a 32gb phone on the market phone if there dropping expansion slot for a memory card
Start looking at other manafactures

Had a play with a mates GN5 and its awesome... it just needs more internal memory or an SD card.
TheNeighbor, 09 Oct 2015Right. With no statistics to back your claim of "99%" of users are like you. Tsk.Then what stats u have? LOL.
