In countries like Korea, Japan, Singapore, their internet is top speed, as I've experienced. 32GB of internal memory will work just fine.
It's an irksome task to either connect a micro USB dongle that sticks out, or have to carry around a wireless portable HDD that lasts 4 hours and can't connect to data at the same time.
I will not buy Note 5, waiting for Note 6 if it has removable battery and SD card slot.

Don't think Samsung doesn't see that? They see a system that is working and has worked. Not only that: cloud computing is being pretty much forced on us anyways. Those trying to gain presence in the industry by going with the SD Card, removable battery.. they are trying to capitalize on the downfalls of the elephants in the room.
It's not going to last.
The industry is going cloud, even on the desktop. But, with Sidesync; I can swap movies and music easily and quickly on my phone from my laptop or desktop. Or, control my PC no matter where I'm at, swapping files (yes that costs data).
I'm not opposed to what people are complaining about, but, I see the future in this industry.

Sorry, we android user are not familiar with Nokia version of mashup android. Its a mix of Nokia Asha platform with Windows platform except that they replace Microsoft services with Google services. It is a very complicated OS platform. Why did you buy that phone in the first place? Nokia X is a fail attempt at entering the android market. You should replace it with Nokia C1 which is coming soon. Purer version of android (with skin) without Nokia ridiculous mashup compromises.
AnonD-100398, 15 Sep 2015Then if u really want note5 get the 128gb otg dongle cause for most users 64gb is enough.Yeah, that makes sense... your phone is full and every time you want a new movie etc you need to plug in a usb stick... given the high res cameras and 4K video, reducing storage space is just silly. I'm a long term Samsung user but they are losing the plot trying to mimic apple.

I bought the Note 4 instead of the note 5 as my Note 2 crashed and could not be recovered.
Once the Sony Z5 dual sim is in the market my relationship with Samsung will come to an end .... till they come up with a better note phone.
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2015Something doesn't add up here? It have smaller battery simply because it is thinner than Note 4. Which doesn't add up. I am sure the majority of note users would happily have an extra mm for 25% more battery life considering there is no removable option. For me the biggest killer is the storage, 64GB max is a joke.
Yeah!! Note5 is one of the best smart phone ever made by Samsung , bcoz, it`s get with Li-Polymer battery , it`s can hold more power / last longer.... The S AMOLED technology also reduce the draining battery,, perfect smart phone. apple can`t beat SAM.... unless it equip with best accessories ..
Battery is a show stopper for me unfortunately, I,m sure everything else rocks!
quiute disapointing without memory card n non removeable battery with only 3000mAh,i cant understand the logic. i was waiting for note 5 but its simply discouraged me.

AnonD-430264, 14 Sep 2015Wrong. Aside from removable battery and SD Card, and the IR (big whoop); the Note 4 has nothin... moreAll in good that it's more snappy, great screen with over 100% RGB color accuracy, and the camera really a little more better - somethings that I was really looking forward to as an actually upgrade.
I consider the Note series as serious tools - everything in a small packaged computer/powerful image documenting device that fits in a pocket. The sleek design isn't a big factor.
I've tested it, and however how relatively slightly fast it is, what it lacks and flawed S Pen storage system (someone else will put it backwards for you) just bothers me for that high price.
Those "free" insurance for repair/theft, fast wireless charger, 100GB cloud and whatever combo promo are consolation prizes.
sunny, 14 Sep 2015The most decent phone nowadays is samsung galaxy note 4. It is an excellent phone which beats ... moreWho is saying that the ur note4 is not a best smartphone ?
but listen to this one very carefully ."It is a best smartphone only for ppl who can't live without the micro sd card slot and the removable battery"
bmaster, 14 Sep 2015iphone 6s plus vs note 5 preview:
It's iphone 6s plus who is going to beat the note 5 but not... more1) forget iphone 6s even the iphone 7s will never beat the Mighty Note5
2) how come the display goes draw! Note5 has a 5.7" screen vs 5.5" on the 6s plus & Note5 has more pixcels Note5 wins .
3)6s beats note5 is camera !This one is a big joke Lol.let me add a point here Note5 has the best smartphone video recorder.
4)battery life is very subjective it cud b win or loose for either smartphone means it depends on personal usage.
5)yes u r correct note5 is way sharper than the iphone 6s btw ur this point contadicts with ur 2nd point
6) Software - This is very very subjective cause if u ask a Geek he wud say Note5 has better software but if u ask a average iphone user he wud say iphone 6s has better software.
On this topic there is something i wud like to say as u must almost everyone is aware that samsung has got rid of the microsd card in favour to the phones overall speed and performance so no this time time around the sofware will work much better than the previous note series wud b on par with the iphone 6s.
7) 1.3 gigs-yes its lesser than what u get on Note5
8) Single core- yes this is also less than what u get on the Note5
Overall Conclusion- Note5 wins and stays on top untill some other OEM acts smarter than Samsung.
if some are you aren't samsung fans, then why would u waste your time looking for this article ? is just for you to give your mean comments? cmon, you cannot deter us from being a samsung fans..
