I dont care without sd card or non removable battery bec. I always change my phone every 2 yrs, and s pen problem? its for stupid people do that.. All i can say is a very nice phone..
The S Pen on the Note5 is uniformly shaped throughout, unlike the styli on the previous Note devices. This means it goes in easily either way without much resistance. The problem is, if you accidentally do insert it the wrong way, the stylus goes most of the way in and then gets badly stuck in the phone's holding mechanism, making it difficult to pull out without the help of tools. If you do manage to pull it out, the stylus detection mechanism on the phone - which tells it when the stylus is inserted or removed - stops working permanently, as Android Police discovered on their review unit.
Overall it's a great phone. It just needs a removable battery and micro SD card slot.
yemko, 26 Aug 2015No mhl/hdmi connectivity? wtf! 🙉 Something I love my Note 4 for 💃Yeah I use my old Galaxy S3 connected to my upstairs TV using MHL as a media streamer/Games console etc. And when I get my next phone I'll be doing the same with my Galaxy S5 so I always get years of extra use from my phones, but without MHL the phones are worthless and just fit for the trash after a few years with all the other limitations on the Note 5.
I don't note 5 because ther is no external memory card....but in s5 & s6 it is given...and their phone memory is 32 & 64....sorry...thanks...
Note edge is way cool than note five, except few hardware upgrades in note5. still prefer Note edge even after using it for 9 months.

no sd card
no ip rating
poor battery life
back breaks easily
spen insertion issues
Non removable batter
only 32 gb
no ir blaster
fm radio ??
AnonD-139514, 25 Aug 2015THEN why is LG G4 beating the note 5 in the speed test with still having 4gb ram ..u get it.n... moreSpeed test as in LTE speed or benchmark test?
I too feel this phone isnt as fast as it should be.but no lags but still not fast enough.
AnonD-389805, 25 Aug 2015Good thing about the LG G4 is you can get an extended life battery doubling the battery life a... moreYes the replaceable battery is the only thing i like about the G4.other than that my Note5 or iPhone 6 can get the job done.
I carry 4 phones with me most of the time.Note5,Passport,iPhone 6 and S6 Edge....
Dont ask why i carry around so many phones xD
Now the s pen has a flaw???
Is this true??
So sad that you live in a forest or a cave. We humans live in normal places where you have power outlets everywhere. We can afford to charge our devices everyday and literally everywhere.
AnonD-265430, 26 Aug 2015Samsung are going in the wrong direction... no SD slot for storage expansion and maximum stora... moreA lot of new smartphone now offer only up to 32gb with no sd slot. We will know the reason why soon if sd slot keep disappearing from every smartphone manufacturer.
