KinG, 20 Aug 2015Believe it or not, memory cards are now a thing of the past like floppy disks...but then 64 Gb... moreYou're saying upgradable memory is a thing of the past?
I guess that means when your computer runs out of memory you just shrug you shoulders and go "Meh... Hard drives are a thing of the past"
Just try to comprehend that smartphones have now replaced most of what people once needed computers for and for a huge portion of the world they don't have a computer at all as there's not much need now.
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2015I will stick to my note 3. Used to like my note 2 cos it had Fm Radio that records programmes ... morewell said. i agree with you in totality. same here. sticking to my note 3. just got a new battery for note 3
I was waiting for Note 5 eagerly. Am still on note 3 and i think will continue with that. Really cannot understand why they cannot put a larger battery. 1 mm increase in thickness will not do any harm, but just imagine with such big size of phone and non-removal battery, manufacturers should use the space and design a much higher capacity of battery. If it was 4000 mah battery on note 5 / S6 Edge +, i would have bought one today. Now i have just bought a new battery for my old note 3.
Believe it or not, memory cards are now a thing of the past like floppy disks...but then 64 Gb should be the minimum on a flagship, with availability of 128 Gb for power users.
Samsung is at the moment manufacturing cheap 128 Gb memory chips for low and midrange phones.
"We expect to see that mid-to-low-end smartphones will increasingly adopt 128GB of memory storage in the near future," a Samsung spokesman said via email.
My S6 Edge 64 Gb has no memory card and i don't miss it. Card was slow and unreIiable, being easily corrupted or unreadable for unknown reasons...
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2015yes these know all tech geeksIt's just the sheep that act like experts who just accept whatever phone they're given and try to justify why features are taken away.
Equinox Hydroid, 20 Aug 2015Go for note 4 its the best nowagreed note 4 for the best now
note 4, 20 Aug 2015Hahaha now some one will say ohh infrared is an old fashion like fm radio and sd cardyes these know all tech geeks
I will stick to my note 3. Used to like my note 2 cos it had Fm Radio that records programmes on radio, but the new notes 3 to 5 no radio. It almost the same functions just difference of speed, interface and camera pixels, the other notes has sharp camera pixels as well. Until they come back with the Fm radio will always use my note 3 or get LG G4 . Super fone .
News about Note 5 Activ with 4100 mAh battery next November!!!!!!
I have a question to Digital SLR Camera owners only. What's the best camera I can get today (Aug2015) that does not have an SD card slot ? ? This is valid question. Thanks in advance.
Trying to follow apples foot steps by no so card and removable battery. Samsung is slowly killing themselves with the moves they are making that was forced by Apple. Really pathetic and sad
note 4, 20 Aug 2015Hahaha now some one will say ohh infrared is an old fashion like fm radio and sd cardI will be the judge of that. IR sensor is made since the Nokia era. Palm, Symbian and Windows Mobile devices have this IR blaster. But, back then Nokia dumbphones used it for very basic and slow file transfers between devices. Until some developer decide to write apps to let you control your tv and all. That only lasted till 2007. Since then, IR was abondoned in all smartphone to make them thinner. Somehow it was brought back by Samsung and HTC in 2013. They are one of the few still offering the feature today. But it 2007 all over again when the thinnest smartphone race continues from where the left. Im pretty sure it just a phase. Like fashion, it comes and goes.
Build in battery .not good idea. When u r at outdoor.
I'm using note 3 .I got 3 batteries. Using many hours on very day.
can use without worry About low bat.
I will stick with my Note 4... no sdcard and non removable battery make this a big deal breaker..
Samsung, you dropped the ball on this one..
Hahaha now some one will say ohh infrared is an old fashion like fm radio and sd card
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2015What killing the chat are you talking about? Someone here don't even know the idiom 'curiosity... moreIt's not my fault. Blame Samsung which makes a phone with so les specs. I will rather buy 4 Moto G3 than this Note 5.
