-Speaker is loud
-Light & compact for its screen size
-Fingerprint unlock is always dead-on
-S-Pen very accurate
-New S-Pen features make multitasking simple
-Camera takes stunning photos even with low light and has tons of free plug-ins to enhance picture taking
-Battery last all day with heavy use
-Quick charging works as stated. Fast!
-Phone stays cool even when pushed
-Is kind of slippery without case
-Front camera makes pictures look pastel
-No SD Card or removable battery (for those that absolutely need that)
-There have been quite a few times where I had sound on full and didn't hear my text ringtone (sometimes having to restart the phone, clear app cache or turn the volume down then back up)
-Sometimes I can't view HD pictures in horizontal mode until I clear app cache
-Several times the texting multitasking mode gets stuck horizontal even when the phone is vertical, have to yet again clear app cache or phone restart
-I use Chrome for Web browser. There are times when scrolling long pages that I do get slight delay at first if I start scrolling slowly then fast.
That's pretty much where I'm at with it so far. Will update if I discover any more issues.
yeah no card slot but hey samsung has new features 130Gb cloud storage free for 2 years! =)
PARAG B, 13 Sep 2015Hahahahaha Lol man U just made me LOL a lot.the best part was the ULTRA boring classes.lolLol. That keep the old man quiet. I guess you guys win.
It has no memory card expansion and only available in 32GB and 64GB?! Is this for real?
In some countries it's only 32GB why Samsung why. No more Samsung. I'll wait for the new htc or iPhone 6s.
ajiththv, 13 Sep 2015i heard the pre order started in in india.i am planning to buy my first phone in note series.i... moreSee it depends ,lots of buy may not even need the 1 time scren replacement cause the quality of screen and very good and durable and lots of buyers wud take care of there new shiny device a lot..if u dont want a wireless charger and u can wait and u really really want the silver color then u have to wait. The only option ritnow is gold 64gb even that has been delayed for shipment now , if u buy now it will b shipped on the 20th.
I bought it on 09/10 i.e my device will b shipped on the 16th. But i guess the slot for 16th shipping got full that is why they have now delayed it to the 20th .The more u delay the more u will have to wait for the device and u may loose the preoder offer as well.
Anyways All the very Best for whatever u do. Enjoy.
It will be available from 20th of this month, but if you pre book the device you will get a free wireless charger and you can also avail one time screen breakage replacement by just pay 999.So if you are planning to buy then its better to pre book

I have been reading last file pages of comment, nobody has really bought and told some real-time pros cons. I will buy it when S7will launch in 1st qtr. It'll have a 5.7"screen a real contender fr N5. Anybody got S6 no need to upgrade as same ditto hardware. Same genomics. There is whole world to see, than buy 850$ set.
blondi, 11 Sep 2015Yeah i was thinking about lg phone. Biut ive never used that brand before. Il have a look:)Trust me and try it :) u will not be disappointed :) yah u don't have a reason to trust me but man... I don't have a reason to say it to you not at all... I'm just heavy user... And this advice is friendly ... Take a look on LG g4 on net if you don't sure about it... Again sorry for my English... I know it's bad as dual core cpu
TheNeighbor, 09 Sep 2015I only carry one extra. I get 100% power after a minute of swapping, rather than wait about 1 ... moreWell,I still no get it. Maybe I unlike you are a heavy user. But its ok, thank for sharing.

TheNeighbor, 13 Sep 2015So far, the Note.5 has is a downgrade compared to the last two generation of Galaxy Notes. All... moreBoo. Being a lecturer of university doesn't mean you need to write a super long thesis in here. Nobody read this. Even your student. They probably dozed off during your ultra boring class.
So far, the Note.5 has is a downgrade compared to the last two generation of Galaxy Notes. All it has to show for are major flaws and a lot of compromises missing the following:
Versatility - all the goodness of the universal infrared remote, DIRECT user battery replacement, DIRECT third party extended batteries like Zerolemon, swappable high-capacity micro SD cards which go up to 128GB for only $75 now.
Rigidness - it's ironic that people complained about the plastic back, and yet now they'll need a heavy plastic protection for that fragile glass back from drops. All anyone needs for the past Galaxy Notes is a side bumper and back is exposed. Another glass surface doubles that breakage incident, especially for our hipster friends who actually like to use this without a case to show off the smudgy laden back.
Reliability - the S Pen for this is flawed getting stuck if anyone putts it in backwards, destroying the Pen detection switch. It's totally f***ed up flaw. You have to keep guard and tell off people not to put it in backwards all the time. This was never an issue with any of the Galaxy Notes.
Powerbank, USB OTG dongle, wireless HDD, and all the excuses for Samsung's direction for this excuse of a poor Galaxy Note-iPhone wannabe are bad compromises for Galaxy Note users. These compromises were the sources for jokes against iPhone users actually trying really hard forcing themselves to endure all the shortcomings of an iPhone.
Looks like there's no difference now.
TheNeighbor, 13 Sep 2015Yup, the smartphone is now officially has more brains than the owner. I'm actually outside, sk... moreThat removable battery statement is over-repeated. Fine. You win. You are right all along. You are the god of righteousness. We bow to you and worship your words. Note5 is not greater than Note 4. *I bet that is what you want to hear from us. Keep dreaming.
I didnt Find any big update from note 4 to note 5 i think better to buy note 4 than note 5.
