Is very strange how can samsung and other phone makers avoid battery change and memory expansion in the phones, what will happen with a 32, 64 gb storage and they say their phone is advanced, i think Note 4 is a much better option great features, plus can change battery increase memory, future phone should have more than 100 gb, in fact they should aim for a 1tb micro storage, charging through WIFI etc these new phone updates are just like cosmetic changes like now they will come with S7 Note 6 with again some stupid cosmetic changes (size, skin, resolution,camera) , there is no ground breaking technology or revolution, to all those techies out there in Samsung, Apple etc request you, please give us a game changer, some thing revolutionary cause the time is not far when users will realize it and stop buying these NAMESAKE updated phones.
I HOPE SAMSUNG AND APPLE LISTENING.
AnonD-22824, 31 Aug 2015Lg g4 is not even a proper flagship phone dude its a plastic toy with a midrange sd808 chipset.Well I don't see the leather or plastic of the G4 shattering when it's drop from waist height. I thought the SD808 was crap as well (especially for QHD displays) but if you search for speed tests on youtube you'll see it's no slouch and actually beats the Note5 at multitasking and is close behind at everything else. Not to mention its way cheaper.
What some people tend to forget is what makes the Galaxy Note are its S Pen, versatility, and spectacular specs - only true for the first 4 Galaxy Notes.
S . SUDHAKAR, 31 Aug 2015Do not buy LG phones as they give worst battery backup. Buy only Note 4.LG G4 has a pretty good battery and is a brilliant phone, but I have to admit the Note 4 has a bit of a better battery life. I still prefer LGs because of that double tap and no buttons on the sides at all and the ridiculous amount of customization available...i currently have the G3 and will wait for the LG G5 in April, seeing that the Note 5 is no longer something i want...
I using 128GB + 32GB (Internal) for my Note 4. Intend to upgrade to Note 5, but how to????? The max is 64GB only.. How to store my videos (60GB) and music (40GB) ?????
Store in cloud need to pay for data, insane!

Apple has the Bend gate controversy ...Does Samsung have a Brittle Gate problem with the Note 5 back .... if yes Sami truly working hard to follow apple
I wish sami stayed true to their differences - Removabke battery / dual sim / sd card / top end specks / stereo sound / ip certification
Sad they have become apple sheep
AnonD-106491, 29 Aug 2015If Samsung wants to target the iPhone type users by reversing their function over form approac... moreTotally agree with you.
Samsung has many variants in the market. Why then touch the Note series? Samy, did you receive any complains from us your power users about the Note? No...And not just that when you buy a Samsung Note then the chance that you will stick with Note is a lot, or should I say it was? Keep the Note specification as before, and come out with other variant and call it for example 'Galaxy Note Glass' for those iPhone users you want to catch. I do not even understand the strategy to drop the 128 GB storage as well! Not to mention that the 64GB is not available in the market at the moment, and in 32GB storage option 15GB is already gone (used for various system files and apps), so you are sitting with not more that 17GB storage!!!
My next phone will be either LG 4 Pro or Hawaii mate 7S....
If you look at price, one plus two is better than note 5 though both have almost same specification and both are awesome.

This Note 5 is just 70% complete, Don't worry with all the bashing Samsung is getting it will come out clean with a fully packed Note 6 with all the enhanced features. I thought the Note 5 will be a striking upgrade of the note 2,3, and 4 it's just physical differences, screen resolution and camera pixels. A flagship phone with no Fm radio, memory card slot, sealed battery, limited storage of 64 gig.. My opinion it's backward it's not a proper upgrade from the previous generation.

Unfortunately, a good design, but it is not practical for the final exhibition and easily broken (The big problem that they are still basic features which external memory and battery power and less remote)
Do you think Samsung to become Apple as a phone or what !!! (Underwhelming hopes)
But now more willing to Note 4 / and I hope from Samsung to issue a second copy and modify them and add shortcomings
The Note 5 is not want I want in a smartphone. I fell in love with the Note series from the first and have been a loyal user through the 4 series, which I currently use. Now, however, I will be looking for a different product line.
First of all, I don't care anything about the stylus; I never use it (I mean never). I also don't care if a phone has a tft or led display; either is more than enough and the screen resolution really isn't a big deal for me either. The screen size IS. I actually prefer the Note 3 over the 4 as far as the screen goes. I was hoping for something slightly larger out of the 5, although the screen size is okay. I couldn't care less what the case looks like; my phones are always in a case anyway and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I do not want to have to plug in a USB drive to save off my files and the lack of a microusb is a big deal for me. The Note 3 and 4 both last about 5 hours before going dead for me (yes, I am on my phone A LOT) and not having a removable battery is a big problem. Thus can, of course, be partially remedied by carrying external batteries, but it is a pain to use the phone when they are plugged in and its actually hard to find ones that have enough capacity to charge the Note series.
Not having an IR blaster is a big step backwards as well. This isn't incredibly important for me, but it is a feature I like.
What Samsung did is redesign a grear phone to be more like the iPhone plus, which is not what made this series popular.
Case appearance = I don't care.
Fingerprint Reader = Useless
No removable battery = Huge problem
No Micro USB = Big Problem
No IR blaster = Annoying
Screen = OK, but not exciting.
Went to the biggest Reliance digital store in Bangalore India and the sales guy said that there were very few advance bookings for the S6+ edge
Though the note 5 not yet launched hardly any customers are asking about it.
finally a senior samsung software engineering manager from their R&D centre mentioned to me that he was not happy by the decisions taken by samis headquarters in South Korea on removeing some of the fearures.
Question will sami learn .... or are they going ti crash like nokia
