I have ruled out downgrading my GN4 to a GN5. The new Sony Z5 premium looks interesting though. Bigger battery, FM radio, dust and water resistance, up to 200GB sd card and a good 5.5" screen. I think the 4K screen is a total waste though and i am a bit worried that the Sony OS is to vanilla compared with the Note..... decisions... decisions :-)

And Get real guys! The internal batteries are 8 times out of 10 constructed better and always of a better li-ion chemistry. I myself prefer an Japanese made battery over Chinese. You be the judge.
u dont need to buy new note... batery wont be broken... but if u mean that have a chance then go to local service.... they will replace it. only bad thing with non removable is that u cant hang 1 more and bring it in bag or some like a reserve

Having equipment doesn't make you an artist, just like having a word processor doesn't make you a writer.
No SD card, and the chipset is Exynos, Non-removable battery, so the battery gets damaged and you have to buy another note, cool, .I.

It's better than the Note 3 in almost every aspect (higher screen resolution, faster chipset, better front/rear camera, Quick Charge 2.0, etc.). The only thing the Note 3 has over the Note 4 is microUSB 3.0. I think you're being bias since you only have the Note 3.
You guys still fighting about this phone specs? Get over it. It is IFA 2015. Look at the nee Huawei MateS with Force Touch technology. Look at the Acer Predator gaming phablet with Helio X20 deca-core processor. Then, the world first 4K display with 806ppi, Sony Xperia Z5 Premium which also come with 200GB expandable sd slot. Your lost Sammy fanboy.

or if you want 4100mah battery & USB 3.0(Type C), just go for Lenovo ZUK Z1!!!!
TheNeighbor, 02 Sep 20155 hours of screen time? How about 8 hours with the Note 3, heck even with the Note 2:
http:... moreIam using dual sim LG G4...and iam very happy with it...
I was using note 4 duos and got same screen time...soo for me G4 is perfect....
From bad to worse...
I would love to upgrade my Note3. But Samsung bitterly failed with Note 4 and Note 5.
vs my Note 3.
No microSD card slot ( I already have 128gb +32 gb internal in my Note 3)
The battery is not user-replaceable
No IR port (!!!)
USB 2.0 vs USB 3.0
Any suggestions for other devices / manufacturers?
What irks me is that even though it's a minor feature, omitting the infrared remote function means I'd have to go to our custodian where I work, surrender my id, and fill up paper so I can have the TV remote.
IR is still with even the S6 and S6 Edge - why in the World did anyone in Samsung decided "not in the Note.5 or the Edge+"?
I'd have to say all these reduced features are for the iPhone users, or plain people who do not how tech works. Even the switch to nano SIM is to accommodate iPhone users to simple have no trouble to switch.
