AnonD-419655, 26 Sep 2015The new Note is garbage. Hands-on in BestBuy in the US proved that. Absolutely nothing special... moreOne more thing all those cheap looking samsung smartphones i bought had a very good plastic material overall good plastic build quality along with the charger and headphones came along with the phones.
Even with that kind of good material they still use to look like a cheap plastic smartphones and thats what i did not like and i bet along with me most other samsung smartphone users either .and j guess that is why samsung fixed this issue with there new crop of smartphones like s6 , s6 edge, note5 & s6 edge+ which has overall metal & premium looking built .
So even the note4 is a cheap looking device inspite it having a very good quality plastic.i.e (note5 addressed the cheap looking device issue). Thats it.
TheNeighbor, 25 Sep 2015You better NOT put any plastic or silicone cover on that Note.5, or else you're just a hypocri... moreI have NO SHAME in saying that my s2, note2, note3 STILL have cheap plastic construction ( so does the note4) which i do not like even though i bought them cause thats the fact , moreover matters goes even worse if u compair these plastic smartphones with the likes of htc, sony, iphones flagship smartphones ,
dont get me wrong i loved (& still love) the best futureproofing specs these plastic smartphones had when they were launched i.e i bought them but i always wanted all those best specs in a premium looking device.This time around samsung got it right atleast for me and for users who had the same thinking like me.
Btw i am going to get the samsung's official clear glass (transparent) premium back cover esp made for Note5 which is also very slim and also protects the phone well without hiding its beauty
:p better luck next time lol.

Lol
But i like what u have said in the (brackets).
Btw even if there wud have been a 128gb model available for Note5 i wud have still gone for the 64gb model.
TheNeighbor, 25 Sep 2015For the uninitiated, and the underpowered users: I use Galaxy Notes pretty heavily, and fixed ... moreNote5 ain't perfect but there is just no other smartphone better than the Note5 in looks, performance,speed,camera etc
& The very important thing easily available samsung service centers which u dont have to see much cause i have been using Galaxy s2, note2, note3 and bought all of them asap they were launched , even the galaxy s2 has never seen the service center and its still working like a pro, i did'nt even had to replace the battery.
only note2 had a screen burn in but samsung replaced the screen without any extra charges and that too with a superfast delivery .
This time around samsung has fixed the my only gripe with all the samsung smartphones i.e plastic build and no premium looks .i.e bought the note5 asap its launched.
I might sound like a samsung fanboy or a samsung rep,but trust me i am just sharing my personal experience and yes i can also understand that there cud b ppl which had bad customer experince with samsung.but hey samsung was best for me so far :)
Btw note5 is even better than its expensive sibling the s6 edge+.if u see the overall qualities. so did'nt have much confusion while deciding which one to go far ..what to say more.ppl just go for note5 if u want the best smartphone at the moment or wait for the upcoming s7 or lg g5 , htc m9 , xperia z6..zzzzzzzzzzzz....lol
The new Note is garbage. Hands-on in BestBuy in the US proved that. Absolutely nothing special out of this device. Same processing speed, same overuse of RAM, same overheating issues as before and a marginally better ppi (516ppi to 518ppi). Again, this phone is really nothing special as compared to the previous Note. Everything is sealed just the iPhone. No expandable memory and no ability to swap a battery. Terrible idea, terrible design. Not surprised though. I knew the Note would be destroyed when the S6 was introduced and this is the beginning of the worst.
[deleted post]For the uninitiated, and the underpowered users: I use Galaxy Notes pretty heavily, and fixed batteries, no micro SD card slot, and a fragile glass back is NOT moving forward, nor is it innovative.
The "Cheap plastic" of the on the rear of Notes 3 and 4 are sturdier and grippy - glass is not. And what do you do when you get the phone - that's right, you put a plastic casing. Ironic. All I do is put a metal frame bumper:
I cast my entire screen with a Chromecast on a TV screen, demonstrate drawing, connect to LTE the entire day - do you think a sealed battery with "under 1-hour" charging can compete with 1-minute waiting time for full 100% power by swapping batteries?
too expensive. better than s6. ridiculous design. it slips easily from hand.
The best configuration of Samsung next flagship should be : -
Built quality of Note 5
SD Card support
Size of S6 with S pan

AnonD-34916, 25 Sep 2015guys... wanna have some opinion on ip6 and note 5.. which phone is worth to buy?? pls advice me thxChoose Note 5. Very powerfull smartphone. Price ok. Nice new experience. I am ex iPhone 5 user
I got this phone 3 day ago. Rest of every thing is perfect except
Ultra thin bezels, sometimes trouble when you use phone laying on bed. Accidently you touch screen with your fingers.

People who bought the Note5 are happy with it... deal with the truth.

Well, Samsung certainly got the formula right for him - bling factor with gold, with fragile glass build, flawed S Pen silo design and less features. Amazing what sort of criteria they think is good design.
I suspect the leftovers of the FAILED S6 series processors surplus were used instead of something that's even the higher and better one, as they would have done before. And this is what we get - another failed iteration.

I only just realised today (after reading the gizmodo article) that the 64GB version isn't even available for Australian frequencies.... the max 32GB simply makes Samsungs decision even more pathetic.

More than half of people care about user battery replacements:
More than half again expressed memory expansion as important:
The Note.5 is headed for a flop, just like the S6/S6 Edge.
Note 5 no doubt. Don't even bother about Iphone 6. It can't compare to the all powerful Galaxy Note 5.
If your phone usage is simple, buy IPhone 6. It has great feel and smooth simple operations.
If your usage is more comprehensive, than buy 100% Note 5. It has got all that a phone can do.
Disclaimer: I have been using IP^, Note 4, Galaxy Edge and I got my Note 5 just today
