Very dissapointing.same as edge or s6 with new name as note 5.whyyyy will i buy this when you released same specs last year.I work hard for my money.not impressed at all.
I'll remain having my Note 4 until new Note 6 releases, then I'll see...
TheNeighbor, 21 Aug 2015I do have some down time, and I download on the go. Music help me concentrate, and audio books... moreYes man. Note 5 is a crap phone. It is better to stick on to Note 4 as for now. Samsung is becoming like sony (no user replaceable battery).
I'm greatly hoping that these are valid questions. What percentage of digital cameras or even digital SLR cameras in today's market (August 2015) do not have microSD slots (expandable storage) ? ?
Also, what top selling camera does not have user replaceable batteries ? ?
Why would desktops or laptops (today) need more than 200 gigabytes of hard drive storage ? Why do "cloud" services even exist ? ?
oh,...by the way... I've never owned a Samsung smartphone or an iPhone. I just saw no need to buy one and my options of other smartphones seem to have a bigger bang for my usage and productivity skills.
I think Samsung is not interested in taking care of its loyal customers, rather it is trying to attract iPhone customers by presenting photocopies of iPhone in the market. I can not understand why did they mess up with Note series. They already experimented with their flagship S series by using premium materials and eliminating removeable battery and SD card. It was a fair decision to do so with S series perhaps. Note is phablet family and these are not meant for everyone but for a specific class of people. So eliminating best features of Note is not a sane move by Samsung. I need to upgrade my Note 2 but I cant choose between Note 4 and Note 5 now. Can someone advise me?

And the only reason the S6 Edge is selling better is it's something different and has that novelty value.
There was a time when Samsung would make an effort to ATTRACT new customers. Now, they are big. So why make an effort? Repackage the S6 and give it to the suckers, they will buy. Take away the removable battery so the suckers will come back in 1 year with a dead battery for a new phone (or a $150 battery replacement). Take away the SD card, the suckers don't need it. Well, this sucker is running away from Samsung as fast as he can!

I mainly use micro SD cards for media. And you can actually encrypt your micro SD card anyway. I pretty much know project files to be on my laptop hard drive, encrypted, and backed up on cloud.
Why is it so impossible to consider a smartphone like a Galaxy Note to being a small computer that does so much? It's small enough to who out of your pocket. And I can understand the resistance in keeping hundreds of gigabytes of media miraculously on a tiny media card? I wouldn't be surprise 256GB micro SD cards come out soon.

Say no to slots, 21 Aug 2015No.. you are minority.
I feel you should wait for the next release of Note 8 series. So hap... moreJust switch your brain on for once and think about what you're saying...
Yeah phones should have more internal memory but they should also have an SD slot so you can keep all your media and whatever on the SD and use the phone's internal memory for apps etc. Because it is incredibly dumb to say SD slots should be removed as it just makes unnecessary restrictions.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2015Samsung Galaxy Note 5 seems to have over 80 % of negative comments.... Well deserved samsung ... morenice one dude, how many peopele ot the 80% that u say have a galaxy note 5 to realy count??? relax samsung make his own statistic based on real data. Here we just have opinions :) .. and somethind else... in the near futher u will understand better why they droped sd card slot
This is amazing set among all set of Samsung Galaxy Series. This is much better than S6 Edge. Superb Ram and Superb Speed. Battery timing is much better. I was using Note 4 but Note 5 is Amazing in speed.

I work in in the same field too. Believe me, we are the minority. Normal people don't use ArchiCAD or AutoCAD. They don't hoarde a lot of data into their phone like us. Don't you use a special encrypted usb stick for confidential data? We use that for important stuff, not our phone. High security is our company priority and we are never allowed to keep data inside our phone. Not even if you own a BB phone. For media, it is much more wise to keep them in external hard disk. I'm sure you don't need to carry all of that in your phone. Your busy job wouldn't give you time to enjoy all that movies, music and books. I bought two phones anyway. One for work and one for personal life.
battery life needs to be better than the 4.LG made the same mistake by not improving talk time.

After you install the apps you need, you'd only have some 10-15GB for media.

I feel you should wait for the next release of Note 8 series. So happens you might get more space and your beloved sd slots. Have fun using your limited 128GB slots and 16GB internal storage LOL..
I for once want to see Samsung move their flagship away, far far away from SLOTS and replace them with MORE internal STORAGE, so they have NO EXCUSE NO WATSOEVA. Samsung have hide within SD SLOTS FOR FAR TOO LONG... and use limiting 16GBs.. its sickening.
