Bunyip22, 09 Sep 2015No SD card is a really strange move, especially when the max storage is 64GB. I have 8 friends... moreI've probably held and tested this thrice already. Every fiber of my being is telling me Samsung made so many wrong aspects on this thing...
I even got USB 3.0, infrared, an S Pen that will never be stuck the other way, and the memory expansion and removable battery. I just bought a 128GB micro SD card after deeming this less useful. I was actually considering getting a 128GB version, but never materialized. The NotePOINTfive was suppose to impress the serious users of all the past 4 generations. Apparently this was made for the iPhone fans - look at the timing, promo to try it out free for a month, nano SIM slot, and no memory expansion so they never be confused where the files are.
Newsflash, Samsung - they'll still go for their beloved iPhone, now with 5/12MP cameras, 1080p screen, gimmicky force touch, and at least they have a 128GB choice readily available EVERYWHERE, even where Samsung is just offering 32GB version of this crap of a Galaxy Note. Yes, the 64GB is limited to very limited markets like the US. You just lost a lot of Note fans this year, and gained little iPhone fans - they want their iOS.
Bunyip22, 09 Sep 2015The problem is if the pointy end of the S pen doesn't go in first. Anyone who does that doesn'... moreWe just want a safety from spen like previous Notes. :)
It's not about brain. It's about safety.
Think you buy such a high end smartphone, but have problem in it's design.
Is it worth? Many manufacturer know about this, they should check their device with Drop Testing, Speed Testing, etc. Included Spen.
When a new car is released. In it's process it's had been tested. So it didn't give any harm while the customer give a ride at it. It's the basic test.
Will you ride a plane if it's jet have a problem? It should be tested before customer use it.
"Plane can have the ugly or unique design like UFO maybe? But, the safety is comes first."
vinod verma, 09 Sep 2015the major disopointment is lack of memory card slot. Exactly, only 64 GB without slot for external memory slot??? Because of this I'll not buy this model, definitely.
vinod verma, 09 Sep 2015the major disopointment is lack of memory card slot. No SD card is a really strange move, especially when the max storage is 64GB. I have 8 friends with Note 3 or Note 4 phones. Not 1 is upgrading, the main reason is storage, the second is battery life/no removable battery.

As long as it has no SD card I will pass. My Note 4 developed a problem recently with the USB port and I could not charge or even back up my data. I would have lost a lot more if not for the SD card. So Samsung think again!!!
vinod verma, 09 Sep 2015the major disopointment is lack of memory card slot. That is why i am so full of hate against samsung right now. and also in us the only to color options available is white and black
Nice phone from Samsung. But I have heard there are problems with inserting and removing the Stylus pen. However I want you guys to know that you will be talking about my premium smartphones in future. A new generation of handheld computers will be manufactured by me. I am a Ghanaian.
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2015The back panel IS gorilla glass 4. And gorilla glass 4 is not crack-proof.You don't know the different between Gorilla Glass 3 and Gorilla Glass 4?
The different is in "Crack". that's right what are you talking right before,..
Gorilla Glass 3 is scratch resistant more can hold scratch from the previous Gorilla Glass 2.
Gorilla Glass 4 is unique a "bit". Gorilla Glass 4 is more elastic than the previous Gorilla Glass 3. With it's elasticity it won't crack easily like Gorilla Glass 3.
At least Gorilla Glass 4 won't crack easily as easy as normal glass. :)
You can see the difference in youtube. :)
Mick, 09 Sep 2015i don't know why people came on these sites and talk rubbish. i have owned all the Notes and h... moreThe biggest disappointment is the absence of a card slot! A cellular must have! Way back then we use to carry flash drives. After the card slots which can now accomodate a 128gb micro sd, flash drives are now things of yesterdays. We practically store everything now in our cell, but with the absence of the card slot i will now have to settle for the Sony Z Series. Good bye Samsung notes!

What we are talking is battery degradation. The battery is degraded so removable battery is the best thing.
TheNeighbor, 09 Sep 2015Put in the S Pen the other end to the pen silo to activate the pro mode.Waw, it's really Pro Mode. Believe it !! :)
The complicated programming will show on your screen if you put the spen backward.
It's more complicated than new 6 spen menu's or black screen write. It's very unique and at the top of all thing even scroll capture can't be compared with it. :)
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2015Why this guy keep babbling about the battery of Note5? Do you even own Note5? Have you used it... moreI'm using the Note5. The battery is better in overall performance than the Note 4 or the Note 3. And I have used all the Note series including the Note 3 Neo.I'm not talking about using powerbank or carrying extra batteries.
Amar Qayuum, 09 Sep 2015did you know that only a few people like you (and me also) that only thinks about feature??mos... moreYeah, I just different than most of people and I like it. To be myself. :)
