I'm using a moto g 3rd gen and i still put a case on it since the chrome sides started flaking off on its own. I know it's a budget phone and it doesn't have a good design but once my device starts getting scratches and dings on it, i dont feel like using it. I'm sure many people can relate to this...
Why Samsung is offering One time Screen Replacement free with Note 5 & other smartphones like s6 series? They have Gorrilla 3 scratch & impact resistant screen, right ? Or even the gorrilla glass can be broken ?
Best Phone in World at the moment with worst lack of memory and no SD Card Slot
Anyhow I'm enjoying this beast with Awesome design , display , camera , ( 6-Hours battery life with full display with fast charging capability as it charges in less then hour from 0 to 100) , Big speakers , & features with no heating issue ... Specially i love its S.Pen with new features

The Note 3 & 4's backs are really much more grippy - I actually liked how the S5's back felt in the hand. All of these can be placed with metal bumpers, and the backs sides exposed without adding extra thickness. This simply can't be done with the Note.5 at all - one drop, 90% chance it gets a crack.
Really ironic that users just cover that glass most likely, rendering the shiny glass & gold color out of sight, and totaly useless point in the design.

I rather use silicone casing. Even if my phone is made of unbreakable plastic. I hate seeing scratches on my phone. I wonder why they stop using leather or pleather. It is both scratch resistant and crack-free.

It makes LESS sense to put glass at the rear, increasing breakage by another 100% - really pushing the need for any protective casing. So much for it being so thin and shiny glass. This is what underpowered users want.
Camera display sensors everythings better in note 5 but when it comes to performance like playing games browsing net one plus 2 has an edge kver note 5

They can manufacture incredible flash memory, ram, and A9 processor fo... morethat's probably one of the reason why samsung won't make something that would bring iphones down to its knees, that's business. that is where it boils down to. hardware-wise, samsung without any question can beat apple (talking about smartphones). software-wise, i don't know. the reason why iphones are faster is because their OS and apps are designed to work with their hardware. it's like they were designed together. android isnt' designed by samsung, not optimized. so to overcome the mismatch, they're packing their phones with hardcore hardware.
TheNeighbor, 26 Sep 2015Because it's plastic.Is it?
TheNeighbor, 26 Sep 2015Because it's plastic.See thing with plastic for me is like this, its a good material ,however it lacks the premium looking property big time. Try harder man.
Anonymous, 26 Sep 20151 - higher sales don't mean a better device... just look at the iphone
2 - what if they don't... moreEven i am not saying that only the higher sales tells us the entire success story however at this very moment the note5 beats even the Sony Xperia Z5 premium and few other highend flagships which is not even launched yet .
But Ppl mostly buy iphones for there simple OS and these ppl do not like to geek much ( like expanding memory or removing the phones battery every now and then lol ) on there smartphone, and that is fine cause smartphone is not ur life,cause life is also more than using a smartphone, i.e they also have 16gb as a base model for even the Iphone 6s and 6s plus.cause they are not only promoting cloud storage but this also means that ppl now a days do not have much time to use all that expandable data and no time to remove the battries etc.
u may love it or ha.te this idea but the world is going in that direction only.
To explain this better I'll give youba example,
Just imagine you give 16gb or a 128gb iphone to Tom Cruise , do you really think it wud matter a lot to him ,cause a guy who is so busy with his lifestyle and has lots of other exciting things to do in his life than using his smartphone.
He may not even use the 5gb out of that 16gb so for these type of ppl even the pony 16gb storage makes sense.i.e all ppl around the globe is getting smart and going towards the busy lifestyle again u might not be one of those but the fact remains.
This is very similer to the ppl understanding the importance of organic food compaired to the food which is processed in a factory.
Means ppl have started to understand that the smartphone techology is all good,addictive,useful and exciting etc in there life but ppl have also started to know that it cud cause lots of health issues.
Thatswhy as "they" say "too much of anything is not always good for you"
& I already bought the 64gb model as i consider myself as a not too busy and not too lazy kind of person so 64gb is just perfect for me.
but yes i can understand the frustration of ppl who do not even have the option to buy the 64gb model in there country rit now.
I bet samsung cud already be working to fix this issue asap.
Anyways I Wish you all the very best with whatever u do, buy a iphone or a note5 or any other smartphone. The choice is yours and it will always be yours*.
but always remember "smartphones r made for us, we are not made for smartphones"
TheNeighbor, 26 Sep 2015Your mean clear acrylic, not glass. Stop the BS. It's plastic. Glass breaks.What makes u think that i care of what u think abt the back cover for note5 that i am going to get,lol come out of ur dream.
Btw i may just keep my note5 without any case or covers as i already have 1 time screen replacement :p
U still have to try harder to tr.oll here dude , u r getting too boring at this now a days lol.

These guys are going backwards in tech. First we don't have expandable memory on a phone that begs for movie playback. Then we don't even have slow motion 240 on the last 3 releases while iphone did. Only it was pointless on iphone since you couldn't upload it in it's slowmo rate. Just an artificial process rather than a smart render.
What the hell is iphone competitors thinking with this new proprietary garbage that has always sent them customers who don't want that lock-out issue with apple trash?
AnonD-419655, 26 Sep 2015The new Note is garbage. Hands-on in BestBuy in the US proved that. Absolutely nothing special... moreThe new Note5 prove to be very successful. It sells better than Note4 and Note Edge from last year. Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are even better. Counterpoint Q2 report shows that Samsung is still the King of the smartphone world. They have the highest percentage of global market share worth 19% in mobile phone market share and 21% in smartphone market share only. The rest of the other brands are garbage. Samsung leads the future. Next is now. Its not a phone, its a Galaxy. If its not a Galaxy, its a garbage. Don't buy garbage.
