TheNeighbor, 04 Sep 2015Even with a Lithium Polymer battery that is sealed within the Note.5, it's going to expand if ... moreU sud not worry day and night abt the non removable battery lol .A sealed battery allows the phone to get a unibody design without any flimsy back cover which falls apart if the phone drops .
non removable battery also gives a premium look to the phone.
Even with a Lithium Polymer battery that is sealed within the Note.5, it's going to expand if you'll not change it after 300 to 500 cycles. Basically, current battery technology has not changed for the last 20 years. Who cares, right?
Have a look with what happened with an iPhone 3G in 2011:
That's like after 2 years he's used that iPhone.
This is why it's a good idea with a removable battery so that you can inspect that battery from bulging from time to time. The expansion of the battery is bound to happen, and when that gets puntures, it can violently exploded with high heat. Imagine that happening in your pocket or while making a call next to your ear...
I cycle 3 new batteries for my Note 3, and bought my wife 2 new batteries for her Note 2, after signs of slight buldging on the batteries. I change new set every 18 months, so I know my batteries are effcient giving me more than 80% of their charge holds when they were new, and I'm safe from exploding danger.
I don't know why Samsung made the dumb move with sealed batteries, and fast charging actually accelerates their eventual ineffectiveness.
[deleted post]Exynos overheats the phone and the battery will eventually get damaged, does not matter the 8 10 time better or better constructed thing, plenty of new buyers are complaining about the exynos 7420, they r experiencing the same situation as S6 users.
Samusng lack innovation and idea of its own. They are always at the back side of apple iPhone. Samusng will be the next Nokia to fall.... trust me.... while Microsoft and apple will dominate
Today I finally bought a 128GB micro SD card for my Note 3. This is to replace my current 64GB which keep filling up. I'm pretty sure I'll be getting more than 100GB of space I can use.
If I got the Note.5, I'll have to carry around some OTG dongle to be sticking out because my region will only be supplied the 32GB version - NO 64GB! This is the level of absurdity of this so called excuse of a Galaxy Note.
I'm pretty sure other Note users are now wanting that Z5, because it can take a micro SD card. I personally wouldn't get it, but people who value memory expansion will actually consider it than this iPhone wannabe crap.
Very good design and camera features. But the most used feature of Remote control dropped is what will definitely impact the Note5. I myself bought an S4 to use the remote app which worked flawless on my appliances. If I wish to upgrade to Note5, I would say a big No for it doesn't seems a much difference expect on high price.
A smart phone/note should have a removable battery and external memory to attract or motivate the customers to buy the high priced product. In this sense Note5 is not customer friendly.
AnonD-431572, 04 Sep 2015But it's your choice, I'm on the same side, internal battery,.. how long it will last?

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 ?
