Lousy phone without micro SD slot and non-removable battery. S pen is a failure in Note 5. The 4GB Ram doesnt speed up the phone at all, as it is for Multi-Windows function, which a lot of people mistaken for its speed! Note 5 only max up to 64GB!!! It's not enough!!!
If you were to do a calculation on Note 5 memory price as compared to microSD card, you will know how much more expensive it is!
This phone is a failure.
Microsoft is coming up with a phone with micro SD slot support up to 256GB, removable battery, stylus pen and USB C connector!
AnonD-22824, 30 Aug 2015Again a note for u - just accept that the Note5 & The S6 Edge+ r the best smartphones righ... moreSorry, I could care less of any of your S6 or Edge fancies. They are worthless to me without the S Pen, no matter how good looking they are. Note 5 on the other hand, I can get for free with my serice contract renewal. I'd be paying for the same amount of service, and why not get the "free" device that usually comes along with it.
Unlike you who just likes how it looks and the IDEA of fast memory, for me the S Pen is all important, and I was really hoping for it to be my next upgrade. Not likely now, with all the fiasco numb-nut job that Samsung did. I appreciate the processor upgrade and better fingerprint scanner, BUT NOT the terrible sealed battery, no memory expansion, glass back, and the S Pen design flaw.
Hey, you like the bling and not even know how it really works, ignoring the weakness of the device and all for a shiny fragile device choice - your sense of what is good like the logic of iPhone users - "don't-know-better-don't-care-it-looks-good-it's-popular-I-want-it".
I'm a big Galaxy Note fan (not the brand Samsung) since 2011. I can only come to forums warning people not to get this.
I think more better lcd more bigger but battery not large, i thought 4000ma more better than, there is no radio, said to be confirmed its doesnt clear
TheNeighbor, 29 Aug 2015And some people think the S Pen works in other Samsung non-Note models... like an ordinary cap... moreAgain a note for u - just accept that the Note5 & The S6 Edge+ r the best smartphones rightnow .. i know u also love the note5 and s6 edge + from the bottom of ur heart but u r living in denial rightnow .sooner or later u wud b seen praising the note5 and s6 edge+ here only on gsma..just mark my words if u want lol.
Ricardo , 29 Aug 2015I'm a Note user since Note 1. Now I'm waiting for Note 5 to replace my Note 4. I'm an Architec... moreLook l been followed n upgrade ssung model up until now. Q?, y?, do u need to change to non-removable cover n sd slot, y cant u just do like note4 also u could have design the look even more aerodynamic feel so that samsung can be launch commercially to it looks everytime new one came out. As i look at note5, it just like a square object, nothing that catch my eye for the urge to buy them.
TheNeighbor, 29 Aug 2015Fast charging/fast wireless charging aren't advantages - fastest way to ruin your charging cyc... moreTrue... Pity there is no replaceable battery on the GN5.... Lucky there is on the GN4.
I had used Note-1, now using Note-4. I'm shocked, Note-5 is Non-removable battery!!!, Nano-SIM!!! and looks like smaller Huawei MediaPad/Honor X1 (4G, 13MP & 5MP, 7", 1200 x 1920 pixels) which I'm using too because the display is bigger and battery Non-removable 5000mAh.

Really happy to see ur comment.am basically a note lover n using note 3.n plannin... moreHi Sadek
Forgot to mention that have a look at the Huawei Mate 7. Its got the best specs on a big screen phone also non-removable battery but it is a 4100 mH batt as it can give you most days 2 to 3 days batt life and has 2 gig ram and 2 processors. So it packs a punch.

Its always good to get a proper upfront as to what you are in for in terms of specs like batt life, screen size, functionality, etc.

I will never go back to the Note series unless they improve. Simple my Moto G3 best budget phone does waterproof and cos 4 times cheaper than the Note 5 without waterproof can you see the difference. I will not waste my money again sorry!

More stress and more heat for battery to charge.

AnonD-170236, 29 Aug 2015It's nice it's amazing, I love the overall feel of the phone the glass and the metal on sides,... moreWell done Samsung? This expensive phone was supposed to can with waterproof to save people money against water damage or something similar. Motorola Moto G3 cost 4 times cheaper and does waterproof. That something you can say well done Motorola. But no this Note 5 which is overpriced without security.
No Samsung even removed some advantage like SD slot, highest CPU than Galaxy S series, higher ppi, much bigger battery but you still praise such a product?
People think twice before buying that device.
It's nice it's amazing, I love the overall feel of the phone the glass and the metal on sides, one piece phone no cheap plastic, overall job well done Samsung!!
