If the Surface Pro starts at about $799 with 64GB & 4GB RAM running Full Windows, $800+ for the 32GB Note.5 seems very overpriced.
Their budget Surface 3 starts at $499, at 64GB, and has even an LTE data connection version. And can go 128GB at $599.

But even the surface tablet is still expensive. I don't like how windows tablet cannot fit 500gb internal memory. They really should do something about it because I could easily find Win10 laptop at cheaper price with 500gb internal.

I own a Surface 2 with a nice built-in kickstand, memory expansion that holds all my 900+ book references (do you see why my unlimited LTE service is so useful), and not taking up my 64GB internal memory.
While underpowered users do not see these types as small computers in pockets, like they claim is as minority, it's silly to think that "32GB is all what you really need" is true for us. I see them as useful tools for creativity, information, documentation, entertainment, presentations and communications.
Shiny fragile glass back, cloud dependency, fixed battery, no more IR blaster, lesser features, fixed battery and a flawed S Pen silo design are not making as useful as previous Galaxy Notes.
I think I drew this out of frustration last August. Any manufacturer can please make this idea happen... I'd buy one with powerful specs that work efficiently:
I stay in Nigeria and i'm yet to see this phone in stores. are there any issues with it? or should i go for the note 4?

This is a good phone. But it isn't for me because I carry around 100GB worth of movies and music. Will just go for the Note 4 or wait on Z5 Premium. Samsung really fucked this one up for a lot of us without the memory expansion. They claimed UFS didsn't work with memory cards yet Meizu implemented it on their new device using samsung's exynos chip. Oh and that's another device i wouldn't mind laying my hands on.
TheNeighbor, 30 Sep 2015And the Nexus 6P by Huawei has a 128GB variant at probably $700.
Samsung CAN'T have a 128GB... morehear hear :-)
Paying an extra few hundred to get a 128GB GN5 doesn't worry me.... having to constantly delete files and carry a USB stick because i only have 20GB spare on a 32GB GN5 simply isn't acceptable Samsung.

Samsung CAN'T have a 128GB version of this? Only 32GB for most countries like Australia?

Just waiting for MS's announcement for the Surface Pro 4, and hoping a Surface smartphone will at last be ready soon. Galaxy Note would be in the dust if Samsung keeps denying memory expansion, with sill fragile glass back.
I want the note 5 sooo bad, but i am from Bulgaria (Europe)... And i am not sure if i order it from ebay or amazon for warrancy.... Any rummors whren the note 5 hits europe ? :(

However - I would love for Microsoft to build a Surface Pro phone, paired with a good Intel x86 CPU that's more PC style on the go (ie: laptop like) that has all the goods I really need to have a desktop-like experience on the go.
I don't care what android phone or what it has spec-wise, I'm tired of searching for programs to make the most of what I use most at home; on the go without needing a full laptop.
If Microsoft can pull away a bad ass Windows 10 phone that's very PC, with all the bells and whistles, then I could give a damn about Samsung or whoever has what in a phone.
Here's to hoping this Surface phone with an S-Pen equivalent is not just a rumor or just another Lumina.
Anonymouses, 29 Sep 2015What is up with all this Australian complaining. How undeveloped are Australia really? Aren't ... more1) Australia is different to most other countries in the world because of the low population.
2) Optus coverage is pretty average once you get outside the cities and large towns and the bandwidth isn't good either.
3) Optus does not offer unlimited data (you can get 5GB for $45). Telstra data is typically $10 per GB... this makes downloading movies from the cloud not an option.
The point is, only releasing the 32GB GN5 is Australia is stupidity, I am a Samsung fan but I'm willing to call out bad product decisions when i see them.
