This is terrible, the phone is only six months old, and the battery is dead.
Non-removable battery is big problem for customers, because average battery lifetime
on smartphones is 1 year and after that smart phone go to wastes !!!
Costomers are forced to buy a new phone every year of 1000 euros !!!
Also phones without memory card is a big problem,
Note 4 support memory card up to 128GB !!!
NOTE 4 is last hi-end smart phone with removable battery,
and it will remain forever the best option for me.
I never buy smartphone with Non-removable battery !!!

Then, there will be no problem. I hope samsung business is going well, very very well with abandon it's few customers. :)
Samsung will still rule the market with less features. Our market is huge boys. Losing few people like u guys won't make any slight different. So if you like just buy. Don't u know that we dominates android market. We will be like apple where we just sell like hot cakes with high price n people will buy
AnonD-438351, 08 Sep 2015I believe it is trend.. non-removable battery, No SD card, Metal Glass etc.. all this are new ... moreNo, I won't buy it, manufacturer can't force it's customer. It's not about trend, it's about features. There is "Shadow Move" between manufacturer. Now, many device didn't have Micro SD and Removable Battery. I don't know what exact reason but it seem they want to make more profit with removing it's feature. No Micro SD = Use Cloud => Pay for Cloud Storage. No Removable Battery = Battery Problem => Pay with Higher Price than buy removable battery. More Battery is better to out from Battery Degradation Problem and out from service time (2 weeks or more).
AnonD-438351, 08 Sep 2015it is personal preference la! Bro.
no need SD card - replaced with Cloud Storage 100GB alrea... moreNo need for Micro SD? LOL.
Note 5 Users = 32GB+100GB (Internal + Cloud) Storage.
Note 4 Users = 32GB+128GB+100GB (Internal + External + Cloud) Storage.
Still want to count?? :)
You want to use OTG USB Storage? Note 4 can OTG USB Storage too. LOL
Never use IR Blaster? Try use it once, you will like it. :) (If you have IR Blaster on you device).
Like I said, Nope 5 is Powerful and Beautiful. But, many complex problem like battery degradation, spen backward, easily broken when drop, no micro sd, no IR blaster.
This is fight between old and new, between features and performance.
Who will win? of course features.
AnonD-438351, 08 Sep 2015it is personal preference la! Bro.
no need SD card - replaced with Cloud Storage 100GB alrea... more100GB of cloud storage with a slow internet connection is utterly useless with waste of time downloading, more data usage. Having a 128GB micro SD card can give you 119GB with of extra storage, instantly accessing whatever you need.
I should know - I have 200GB of OneDrive for two years. And I have more sense not trying to watching my HD movies through streaming. Cloud is great for upload backups.
Samsung fanboy, 08 Sep 2015Even samsung produce 2000 mah in this note is this salable. Why are u complaining guys. U re j... more"Guys" is not only me. Didn't you hear the news, samsung profit drop since S6. the truth is, after S5, S users pissed off with S6. Then samsung had been topped it in Note 5. If you prefer Note 5 with Powerful Performance and More Beautiful, then go for it. I'm here just said the truth about Note 5. The Glass, Non removable, No SD Card, No IR, Spen Problem Design.
Software features in Note 5 (Spen Menu, Black Screen Write, Scroll Capture) can be done with software in Note 4. But, the features can't , because it's hardware !!
Note 4 performance isn't as high as Note 5, but Note 4 have more features.
Note 4 user's that want to upgrade to Note 5, run away from Note 5, and go for other brand, some go for LG, HTC, Apple, Sony. Samsung just ruin it's Notes series. This is not Note Series, this is Nope Series and begin from 5 not 1, with Nope 5.
There is a signal with Nope 5, because it's name is "Note5" not "Note 5" it's real name is "Nope 5". (Joke)
Why I'm here? because I don't like what samsung did to Notes series. Samsung, can you read this? I'm not the only one that get upset with what you do, Do want many Notes users like me go away from you? If you still can't believe me, read all opinion in youtube about Note 5 Unboxing or Any Other Videos. You won't get many customer this year for your Note 5.
AnonD-431572, 08 Sep 2015Samsung do you read this?
If you want to make your next Note 6 good in public. Do it in good ... moreI believe it is trend.. non-removable battery, No SD card, Metal Glass etc.. all this are new trend, even Iphone 6 also the same. I guess this is the coming up trend.
no need to complain la.. later all phone will be the same... u will still buying.
AnonD-104517, 08 Sep 2015fkd up phn... no removable battery, no sd card support, no IR blaster, no upgraded SOC(for the... moreit is personal preference la! Bro.
no need SD card - replaced with Cloud Storage 100GB already + OTC USB storage too.
No IR Control - I never use that at all.
But if you compare Note 5 and Note 4, it is more stylish
Wanted to know if the promotion still available for tomorrow Samsung Note 2 trade in for Note 5? I am thinking to trade in my old Note to new Note 5 since the trade in value is high still.
Anyway is the gift free still available?
Even samsung produce 2000 mah in this note is this salable. Why are u complaining guys. U re just a few of this giant market. Lising u guys won't make any different
fkd up phn... no removable battery, no sd card support, no IR blaster, no upgraded SOC(for the first time same SOC as of S series), no faux leather back, still the price has climbed mount everest for no reason... why samsung released this phone is beyond the question... for the first time i am hating my most beloved note series... started hating S series from S5... dont know who will buy this, better u can buy S6 edge plus for spending a couple of thousand bucks more... anyone upgrading his note 4 to note 5 is the biggest stupid...
Anonymous, 08 Sep 2015"spen backward problem"??? You cant stop stu pid ity... next people will be complain... moreYou call me with that word? Low person, It's not about gasoline, You know about spen problem, of course you won't insert it backward. Not you that will insert it, but people around you. :)
Still don't understand?
I know you are not like something that you called me. :)
People that didn't have a safety like helmet while riding a horse, what will happen if they fall? Of course no one want to fall, but how if you fall because of cat? LOL
No one want to drop Note 5, or Insert spen backward, but how if you drop it? or someone else insert it backward? Will you said, "Oh no, my shinny smartphone got a crack. So sexy." or "I know there is no safety and it made from glass, and spen, but what the hell am I doing, I shouldn't do this!!"
Still can't catch what I means? I think you are clever enough but it seem you are little bit of ,..... You know. :)
AnonD-431572, 08 Sep 2015And, with spen backward problem, No Micro SD, No Removable Battery, No IR. (Features) Micro... more"spen backward problem"??? You cant stop stu pid ity... next people will be complaining about cars that stop working when you fill the fuel (gas) tank with water...
Samsung do you read this?
If you want to make your next Note 6 good in public. Do it in good way !!
If you want to keep Note 5 design you should add this improvement :
1. Don't use glass as back panel, Use Corning Gorilla Glass 4 as it's back panel. That's right, corning gorilla that is used as screen, use it as back panel as well. so it won't scratch or shattered easily !!
2. If you want to use UFS 2.0 without Micro SD, Give us 128GB as it's minimum storage on the market, not a mere 32GB, or 256GB Storage of UFS 2.0, so we will say, UPGRADE !
3. If you want to keep the clicking mechanism of spen, don't make it ruin the sensor if we insert it backward. or don't make it be able to be inserted in backward. We want a safety.
4. The battery will be degrade over time, You should not make it embedded or internal battery. It's not good. Except, you can make a new battery type that won't degrade. that will take our consideration, Why still in consideration? Because we love swap battery, easy 0 to 100% in seconds (Instant).
5. Don't remove IR Blaster, It's a feature !!
Why? It's too many improvement? You afraid you will be bankrupt? Ha? Samsung?
Answer Me !! or this is your limits? Hahaha, that's really funny. Or should I believe it? because you use the same CPU in Note 5 with S6 CPU? Exynos 7420? So, this is really your limits? I'm sure you are in bad condition, samsung. Maybe you need to go to "Hospital". I know because Note 5 won't selling well. I see many complaint in your tweet and fb or sites.
Anonymous, 08 Sep 2015i just love everithing about this!!! And, with spen backward problem, No Micro SD, No Removable Battery, No IR. (Features)
Micro SD is needed to get more storage in device.
Removable Battery is needed to make your phone alive in 3 or 4 years or more, and Swap Battery.
IR Blaster is handy, can be used as remote control. It is a feature that used in daily life.
I know the performance is better, but do you really need it? with 4GB of RAM?
When I run many apps in my noteboook it only eats 2.3GB of RAM.
And there is no game for android that need 4GB of RAM for it's minimum system requirement.
