Hi all,, i'm fond of Note series, and i was comparing Note 4 & Note 5, i'd go for Note 5 only for the a bit modern Software & 4GB Ram, also the looks, however Note 4 is perferct on every other way for me, specially the removable battery; only the dated software & interface.
1- I hope u can advice if anyone has an experience with both ,or either wz pros & cons, ?
2- Also, i'd really appreciate if someone would advice the average REASONABLE Note 5 price -nowadays- as i saw a Not 5 available for around $300, Brand New, but oredered from china, or Hong kong, is it much differnet from Eurpoean stock?
3-Also plz advice as the one i want to buy is Note 5 N910A, and does it make any differnce than N910F or any other versions?
All your replies are much appreciated & happy new year.
Vino Rocha, 20 Dec 2017Is this still worth buying even it's almost 2018 already?Yeah, still worth for it if u can get new unit for less than 300usd, or 2nd hand unit for around 200 usd.
The performance still better than most midrange phone on the market. And samsung promise android 8.0 orea on this phone too.
To the owners
Have you faced a heat problem with this phone?
and what about the battery life on 4G?
Used This Device In Past, Already Sold It! But Still Miss This Device With S Pen! Good To Know That Oreo Is Coming For This Snappy Fast Device!!!

I would like to buy samsung note 5 read in the web when update only pen not to use any comen
Vino Rocha, 20 Dec 2017The seller says it last full day. Watcha think? Anyways, thanks for the replies.I've been using the note 5 for last 2 years and still loving it and didn't go for the Note 8 cause of the weird size and battery life.
Note 5 battery lasts for the whole day and little more on 3G mode (not LTE)

Vino Rocha, 20 Dec 2017Is this still worth buying even it's almost 2018 already?i am using this phone since early 2016 and i have adored it ever since but to be fair samsung's touchwiz does get slow with time and this is what is not good. it still has the raw power but the software doesn't complement it. also after 1.5-2 years of usage most users switch to a custom rom to keep the device fast and get new features because from samsung you will get no significant updates but this device doesn't have much dev support from xda. battery was strictly ok since day 1 but now it has been quite bad. screen and camera is still top notch. i would say if you get the device very cheap and you want the s-pen then get it but if you want to use the device for a long amount of time then don't get it.
I am currently using the samsung galaxy note 5 as my daily driver for the past 1 year. And I gotta say its a very fragile device you surely need to put a case on it since i had replaced my lcd twice which cost me roughly $600 just to get it working again but It was worth it
Koraqe, 19 Dec 2017I think note 5 is durable than s7 edge i agree edge screen makes phones more fragile as seen with new s8 and note 8 too
Tucking Fypo, 19 Dec 2017you can 'batter' both phones lolI think note 5 is durable than s7 edge
