So if you use Note5 you have the same probability of dropping it only twice within 2 years. That equal to 2 times glass replacement which Samsung had clearly state only cost $39. Is that too much to ask? On the plus side, the first year is covered by free replacement warranty. So, you only pay $39 in 2 years of usage. Or buy the glass yourself and DIY. Not that hard.
Did anybody notice internet radio app not working on note 5. I tried many apps but no use only showing connecting and buffering but not working

Btw not only does the Note5 looks better but it has for the 1st time become "BEAUTY WITH BRAINS" : ]

Yes, carry that thing without any protection. You need to show off that shiny glass back. Drop it when you feel like it. Hey, it's only $1000+ price for the 64GB where you live.
This is the sort of abuse coming from guys like this with this types of promos. It's actually why the overpricing is for- so you'll feel like a valued customer with these free warrantees. They know you'll likely to break it.
I am not saying that the glass back cannot break b it on note4 note5 or as a matter of fact any other smartphone any which ways samsung has already provided me 1 time screen replacement in a preorder offer so its for sure that i can atleast use my note5 without taking care of it a lot.
These haters have streched this topic a lot and its getting boring now...zzzzz lol
Btw i chose Note5 over S6 Edge + cause note5 has a wider screen than S6 Edge+ screen it has a less wider screen cause some of the scren estate gets lost in the curved edges which are on both the sides .earlier note4 edge was better in this department it has only one curve and that too it was not very deep.I took a hands on of both Note5 and S6 edge+ and found out that the videos other media and everything looks better on the Note 5 than the S6 Edge+.

Even with a clear acrylic glass (plastic in short), that thing is going to be scratched up after a few days. I have a waterproof case that's made of acrylic, and it's prone to scratches.
At least a metal bumper can protect and have the back exposed, but that's a bad idea for this Note.5. You'd need a full protection like with Otterbox with that fragile back. In the end, those who'll actually be using this without protection are just asking for it to shatter. No matter how careful you want to be with a naked device - some m*ron will bump into you, and bam! -there goes that $1000 device on the ground.
I agree with The Neighbor. The glass back for me is not a very good choice by Samsung. There's a high probability that a phone will land on it's back the usual way it is being used- we can discuss the Physics about it. I believe those who favors the glass back are GUILTY since they are using a protective casing and covers the glass, so what's the point of having a glass back. Ah they are wise they use a transparent case :)

Do you not use glass cup, glass plate, glass bowl in your house? Ever wonder why your mother buy it? We all know its prone to shattered but that doesn't stop glassware industry. I bet you hate that glass window in your house, your glass wind shield car, or even your glasses. You just stop making sense a long while ago. Why don't you use basic phone with plastic display. All plastic. Just live with plastic your whole live. The unhealthiest substance on the planet that gives you cancer. Plastic. Takes 1000years to decomposed them.

All first 4 Galaxy Notes = NO glass backs, only front has glass.
Note.5: Has glass back = more chances to break as back likely to even hit the ground when it slips off the hand.
Glass back of Note.5= adds another surface for smudgy fingerprints, more slippery if put in trouser side pockets- can slide out accidentally when you sit down.
Real realistic usage = Will need a thick case like Otterbox to cover that glass back for protection = utterly pointless to have glass back to begin with.
Even Apple has already stayed away with a glass back.

Putting in another glass surface doubles the chances by 100% more. Utter illogical and impractical.
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2015Well, i've never seen a shattered back on a GN4 (its plastic and has a lot more grip :-) ).I bet u must have seen a shattered front screen GN4 ..so what in the world makes u all think that ONLY the BACK is prone to b shattered LOL.Again u all r crossing heights of HYPOCRITE thinking under ur rage of hatered.
U all r talking as if,if any phone drops only the back hits the ground first.u all r making me LOL like crazy .i mean what a biased thinking u all haters have got..Go get some logic first.& better luck next time.till then NOTE5 IS THE KING.moreover it has lots of premium transparent back covers.
I prefer Full HD with removable battery and Micro SD slot
QHD with non removable battery and no Micro SD slot

A glass shiny, finger print prone, glass back? And your actually going to go around using it without a case? Because it'll be contradictory if you get a cover which is some plastic or some silicon because it won't show that shiny gold you want.
What is this deranged misplaced sense of logic what you actually want a glass backed device?
Why would anyone in their right mind want something that breaks upon FIRST impact?
Who wants something like this? Oh, you...
