I was about to buy it and my luck was that I got no money with me. I am a fan of Note versions ..I was the proud owner of all the Note versions until the 5-th one...come on Samsung...how can you remove the infrared blaster..SD card support and removable battery? aren't those features apart from iPhone ? I hope that in the next version they will bring back these 3 things I love and use on a daily basis; until then I will sick with my "old" Note 4. And one more remark: I live in Romania and Samsung will not offer this Note 5 for romanian consumers because " eastern european market is not appreciating the SPen feature" ..really ?

Goodbye samsung, i'll be moving on to sony z5 premium with 4k screen. They listen to their fans by keep giving microsd slot, and as for samsung, im done with u selfish greedy company.
I heard about it too. Also, we can get freebies (power bank and wireless charger) worth with every purchase of Note 5 or S6E+ . Sounds great right?
well, the off screen memo had blew my mind! i'm going to purchase it
black color is my fav! haha
NO sd card ... Bye Bye Samsung I will sure go for Sony Xperia Z5 Premium
But it's your choice, I'm on the same side, internal battery,.. how long it will last?
after a year or 2 years if I don't place new battery, will it become worst even more?
If there are no service for new battery after 2 years, what should I do? throw it away?
If I have removable battery, I can have my smartphone maybe 2 years, or more. Just buy
3 battery or 4. And it will alive in long years. 4GB RAM and removable battery will be good.
As we know 4GB is the top optimum RAM for smartphone. I have 4GB RAM notebook, and I think I don't need anymore RAM for my uses.

Too many flaws in Note 5, but I find something interesting at this and few other device samsung had on the past a year.
The interesting part is S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, Note 5. The new exynos 7420 devices (The new cpu that gives samsung a momentum this year) didn't have swapable battery. Not only that, all of them had glass in design. The new touch fingerprint. Internal storage UFS 2.0. But, the most intriguing part is Samsung Pay. It seem this is what samsung had been targeted in 2014 - 2015 or later few years (Since). The prototypes are S5, Note 4, and Note Edge. I'm not samsung employee, I don't know how can I have this analysis skill. Hohohoho Santa Claus. But Okay, I will explain everything. S5 and Note 4 are the prototype, I know you love this devices than this year devices from samsung. But, S5 and Note 4 just "stepping stone". I don't mean to make you angry (S5, Note 4 Users). But (again), Hear me out. Samsung have different target after S5 had been released. That's right, Samsung Pay (I don't know who bring out this Idea). S5, the starting point of fingerprint, Note 4, the Project P as "Popularity" to call the customer, so it have many features. but, samsung had released the Note Edge as the ACE. the most featured device, also a prototype of "The Edge Screen". That's right, S6 is the beginning of Samsung Pay, also the first race for samsung long vision. I know, since S6, samsung lose it's benefactor. But, samsung won't be bankrupt, otherwise samsung got huge amount of "it" from samsung pay. Finally, samsung had evolved to go to different level from just a smartphone company and going to apple level. Samsung had analyzed apple income strategy. "He is very strategic person, just by looking apple, he knows what to do to his company future, very scary person. :)"
And so, I can foresee the future of samsung, A GREAT. The next Note 6 also will have non removable battery (Definitely, because it's for security reason. It's Samsung Pay standard). Also, with new more beautiful design and performance (No Micro SD, it is slowing down the UFS 2.0). Maybe in near future root won't able to do in samsung devices. Summary, Note 5 and S6 Edge+ are the new other beginning. So, if you still hold to Note 4, Note Edge and didn't upgrade to Note 5, because of many reason (removable battery, sd card, or IR maybe) you will do the same when Note 6 is coming. Samsung won't look back, samsung look forward to samsung pay. We should support it, not as a fan, but as the user, samsung pay will be useful. Believe Me, It's Me, Hohohoho Santa Claus. You should let it (reasons) go.
Sorry, it's long and what a story that I bring up. I should post this on web. If I can.

I heard that the first 100 to purchase the Note 5 will be entitled to purchase 2nd Note5 at 50% off. Any one here is going to queue or camp there? My friend is going to haha!
I agree that Note5 fingerprint detection is now very good and accurate - 99.9% detection without fail. It is way way much improved over the horrible Note4 and better than S6E. Is way better than even Iphone6+
However I had a problem with it as after chosen it as a choice to unlock the home screen, I simply couldn't find any way to disable it anymore !! Not really a fan of fingerprint locking and much prefer simple swipe to unlock display
