Anonymous, 27 Aug 2015Guys does it support fm radio and recording option?No. You can buy Galaxy A8. It have fm radio and recording. Same specs and even better. Cheaper too. Come with sd slot and no troublesome spen. It also have fingerprint scanner. It the perfect version of Note5. I call it Note 5.1.
I just got the note 5 yesterday. White version because that's all the stories had. But I got to say. I'm surprised. With all the thins i miss gone I thought I would be distraught but I'm not.the battery is the same as the note 4 reportedly.the camera is phenomenal I can take shots so life like and in the middle of the night without it being a big blob of black.tje speed is insane.evem with all the multitasking I do. The charge speed is out of this world. My brother has an s5 and when he held then phone he was shocked how comfortable it felt and how small it was compared to my old note 3 and how it was very similar in width compared to his phone. What's funny is that the second he had my phone the first remark he made was how amazing the display was. To all you haters out there, use this phone for just one day and tell me if you still hate it. Oh how did I mention how much I love the fact that I can change themes. I'm using dark material design. The fingerprint scanner is very reliable in any positions too.
Does samsung ever take feedback from GSM Arena ... if not they should
Every time a new flagship is rumoured people put up their list of specs ..... Sami should try and use that feedback to make market beating phones like they used too
Note 5 is not a market leader or technology leader by any means
will it be Dead on Arrival is left to be seen.
Note 5 + in 4 months or less??
Note6 will be a game changer. I'll just wait for it next year :)
phone is nice but external storage is needed
it look like s6 /s6 edge back
in note 4 camera is 16.in note 5 camera must be 20.front facing camera 5 dosnt matter
any way spen ejecter is good

I just bought my 4th and 5th battery, while I'm retiring my first two ones as they aren't performing like giving me 7 to 8 hours of screen time first few months. Now they can only cater some 3 to 4 hours of screen time. This is because I can consume up to 150 GB of days monthly SOMETIMES.
REMOVABLE batteries need not be all about heavily using your device. It's also about efficient maintenance so that you get the best possible charge hold in the long term. Each battery have some 300 to 500 battery charging cycles. An I making it up? Read battery universit dot com. Type battery cycles. Type fast charging. You'll see how truthful what I'm writing here.
That sealed battery will not give you the option of inspections, if it is starting to bulge out. Imagine it bulging inside that sealed phone in a few months' time.
I'm pretty sure that I'm getting above 90% efficiency half the year, and have no need to keep plugging in my Note 3 when power of low. You can't day that with the Note.5.
Fast charging? 90 minutes for a full charge? I get 20% battery to 100% in a minute after swapping batteries. I usually charge the spent one with a desktop cradle charger at home, or with the power bank in my bag. So, practically I have ZERO charging time.

You should know that most Note user in UK is older people age 30+. This is based on polls. Studies have also been conducted and iphones are popular among youngster age 16-23. Iphone is the true kiddies toys.
I have been a note an apple fan both, i just bought note 5 and i can tell you its Brilliant, the Speed is super fast,
camera is undoubtedly the best in the class,
spen features are really smart and really highly productive (specially to write on Screen when you pop out the pen)
Battery has been smarter than NOTE4, Surprisingly!
It feels so premium in hand & surprisingly its lighter and thinner than note 4 with more power.
It has got good headphones (much more like iphone)
Finger Print has been improved.
There are people who says that it does not have SD Card and Removable battery, but i think so days are gone for that phone, as if the phone has to be Slim it has to go without 2 of this feature.
I dont know why some one needs a removable battery?
For SD Card u can have devise of 128 GB ( i bought 32, i dont keep crap in my phone)
Overall folks this Phone is a mix of
Productivity + Style + Entertainment + Power house (that you dont get in any phone)
Go for it.
note 5 is very good phone.i sold my N4 and buy N5 7days ago.everything is better in n5 then n4 accept n4 have micro sd card slot but n5 havnt.but its not a big deal for me.

Yes the direction to go is Hwawei Mate 8 or LG G4. Forget about Note 5 or S6 Edge + They are overpriced. There was an article in CNN pointing out why Samsung now is making Hand Phones without Memory Card Slot following Apple foot step. They want to rip you off for more money. To make a Hand Phone with a built-in Memory of say 128GB it only cost them $44.00 extra (16GB - $7.58) but they will charge you for $200.00 more. Why would they want to continue to provide you with Memory Card Slot. A good Marketing Strategy and they give you reason that with Memory Card it will slow down the Phone. What a Crap! Now we know why Apple refuses to make Phones with Card Slot so that they can make so so so much more money from you. Samsung now learn the Trick from Apple to boost up their Profit Margin.

And the only alternative is the LG G4 but it's specs are barely better than the Note 4.
