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.
Great phone! I hate that the battery is non-removeable, though.
Guys, I found out how to unlock Note 5! Put your S-Pen backwards, and the phone will show you a "Unlock succeeded" message.

Guys newaz note 5 is out and now nothing can be changed. If u like it buy it or look for an alternative. I brought LG G4 and sold my note 4 dual sim which had only 16 in built memory.
All i hope is samsung learns its lesson and gives us note 5 plus with 3500 mah battery and sd card slot and maybe metal back than glass and dual sim version in most countries
Asus has launched 128gb inbuilt memory with sd card slot...and even 256gb inbuilt memory.
So why cant samsung
Not worth buying the Note 5, the differences regarding to the Note 4, a little more speed of micro and secondary camera is 5MP, no memory expansion.
AnonD-111968, 26 Aug 2015We checked a 32GB model in a shop, and it is shocking to see that the available storage is 6.7... moreOdd, I have a 32GB model and have 20.3gb available, after installing many apps, I think I had roughly 26-27gb free out of the box.
After reading both phone's specification...I'd rather keep my Note 4, than upgrading to Note 5, coz Note 5 the battery is non removable and most of their specifications are the same...aside from the front camera coz Note 5 is 5mp and Note 4 is 3.7mp....and the rest are most likely the same...

JY, 26 Aug 2015Didn't realise the iphone had these features.People use Samsung because iPhone never did enough, and he said nothing about what the iPhone could do.
JY, 26 Aug 2015 so don't complain that they use plastic to give those features in older phones,Plenty other metal phones have SD slot and so could the Note 5 but Samsung doesn't want their phones to be upgradable as people would keep their phones longer.
AnonD-111968, 26 Aug 2015It's only a few days after release and customers can take phots/videos more than 10GB?4K video records at just under 400 megabytes per minute, so 70 minutes video and that's all the memory gone.
Amazing smartphone ever. Stop the complaining people. You can still buy other phone if this is not what you want. All the features Samsung get rid off is nothing important. Not for me at least.
AnonD-433818, 26 Aug 2015Overall it's a great phone. It just needs a removable battery and micro SD card slot.Buy a note 4
Anonymous, 26 Aug 2015That is the most pathetic defence i have ever seen the note 5 is a failure. Will Sami la... moreDon't you read or understand? If was defending the note 5 i would have gone on every single complain he made including the micro sd card, the removable battery, the removal of ir blaster etc. and defended it but i didn't and like i said i don't like the note 5 and just was pointing out the pointless comments he made like the it has only 32gb which it doesn't, it has old which is just months old and then Li-Po battery which is more efficient than Lion battery the last one is self explanatory that no one its right mind would put an spen backward. Dude again! Read and understand. Smh
