It's hard for me to accept a non-removable battery for Samsung, since their batteries are not very reliable. Having removable batteries is the only consolation, since I've replaced bloated Samsung (original) batteries in several Samsung phones already. On the other hand, my wife's iPhones, though non-removable, never needed their batteries replaced. I'm afraid these new Notes will cause headaches after a year or so. Ditto with memory cards - the benefits of being able to upgrade to higher capacities and faster cards is just too much to give up. I'm probably going to try another brand while Samsung thinks this way.
Khopadi, 22 Aug 2015Dude removable battery is totally worst i just hate this type of phone. i believe in new techn... more@Khopadi Dude sorry I can't understand your comment. A non-removable battery and a removable one is the same technology. One just hopelessly locks the battery inside, while the other gives an option of replacing it anytime with a fresh charged battery. How can removable battery be worst?
you might as well stat calling all samsungs sampples as they have gone the way of the apple
AnonD-432679, 23 Aug 2015Man so many ppl loosing it at no SD card storage..
Really OMG - Answer
Go get a 5$ micro u... moreDude whats happens when my phones crashes and it doent come on...will i loose all my data... Maybe yes...but if my phone had a mmc card slot i will just shift it to my new phone and i will have all my data...and u wont be carring that usb cable every where with u
Soo plz guys dont justify the removable of sd card
Best to have removable back cover is also that when i break one or damage it badly u can replace it with a new one and phone is new again...
Soo when your note 5 falls and cracks the beautiful glass back...u have to change the whole body instead of just the back...
AnonD-22824, 23 Aug 2015Here v go again u have started to resort on personal attacks than a valid agruement lol. Accep... moreYes, let's not complain.
Let's not critique.
Let's not be be asking for better things.
Let us all be the common folk mass that are ok with mediocracy.
Let us not help improve things.
Geeks don't rule the World at the moment.
Let us not have the best things.
TheNeighbor, 23 Aug 2015You're pretty confused.Here v go again u have started to resort on personal attacks than a valid agruement lol. Accept to b flexible dude and respect others opinions and more than that Accept that not everybody in this world is you.
TheNeighbor, 23 Aug 2015Yes, Samsung and other manufacturers are happy for complacent customers like you.
Of course... morenowhere did i mention that i am all over NOTE5 and it has everything to satisfy everyone..earlier i was purposely praising samsung and note5 and s6 edge+ even for there no sd card slot and non removable battery just to have some fun with u..but whatever i wrote in the last 2 comments is 99% correct.
If u will continue in the same manner i think u will again resort on personal attacks (like learn english,write english what not lol ) than giving valid arguements.
AnonD-22824, 23 Aug 2015U and most geeks here knows what i mean, i dont have to prove anything to anyone but frankly ... moreYes, Samsung and other manufacturers are happy for complacent customers like you.
Of course they want you to think sealed batteries are better - that's how you'll come buying a new device yearly.
Of course they want you defending 26GB user availability, so they can sell you more data expenditure and pay for cloud service or a higher model.
Of course they want you defending that shiny glass back as best thing ever - the more chances it brwaks.
And here you are rationalizing how cheaper they will be after months later. How ironic you want to spend little for something you value highly and lesser in features.
They removed the extended memory option. Bad move Samsung. I guess I'll be moving to the Motorola X Style. Pure Android with a few extras. External storage. No ugly Touch Wiz interface. Samsung will lose quite a few of their fans because of this phone. Sales will continue to drop.
Man so many ppl loosing it at no SD card storage..
Really OMG - Answer
Go get a 5$ micro usb to USB adapter - How many USB flash drives do you all have laying around, make use of one and plug it in to your phone and transfer some crap off ya phone if your that tight for space.. Sure it's not the fastest solution but it beats complaining about not having an SD slot and solves the problem...
TheNeighbor, 23 Aug 201599%? And what statistics did you get that? From your imagination?U and most geeks here knows what i mean, i dont have to prove anything to anyone but frankly speaking it is us geeks who r in minority who knows how to use there smartphone to the fullest but most smartphones users around the world want no complications with the Sd cards and the removable battery..no matter how much u deny it but it is the bitter truth ...same thing happed with the FM Radio & IR blaster very few ppl were useing these features i.e samsung removed it. I am not trying to justify what samsung has done cause even i am unhappy abt the IR blaster but again i cannot use my unhappyness to deny that the Note5 & S6 Edge+ are great smartphones.
AnonD-22824, 23 Aug 2015Whatever u mentioned is true but sadly only for the 1% of the smartphone users for the rest 99... more99%? And what statistics did you get that? It's hearsay, and illogical, if you just made it up.
TheNeighbor, 23 Aug 2015And you'd be happy with a 32GB model? Because that's likely what your region will be selling, ... moreWhatever u mentioned is true but sadly only for the 1% of the smartphone users for the rest 99% smartphone users Note5 and S6 Edge+ are both going to b a best smartphones at the moment, i know 32gb cud b less i.e there is a 64gb model and for that the price is high right now but it will settle down to a much affordable price in couple of months.
Conclusion- we both r correct its just that what i mentioned is 99% correct than ur pony 1%..lol
AnonD-22824, 22 Aug 2015Dude read my comment carefully almost 99% of the smartphone users think what i have mentioned ... moreAnd you'd be happy with a 32GB model? Because that's likely what your region will be selling, leaving you only that 26GB of user space. 64GB model is not common for all regions. It's a special order, even for your lusting for the S6 Edge+.
Isn't it more hypocrite to be claiming to have the most modern and has the most optimized processor, and yet has a battery that can't or just levels out with its predecessor?
Isn't it more hypocrite to to boast of an internal memory system that's like 2 or 3 times faster than previous model, however has less in memory capacity because it lacks memory expansion?
Isn't it more hypocritical that you need to be carrying around a USB OTG dongle to load up on media, because that internal memory can't store enough?
Isn't it more hypocritical to know that the S6 Edge Plus that you profess to be the one you want to get but complain it not having an IR blaster, and yet not get the S6 Edge which has one? Their processor are practically the very same one.
Isn't it more hypocritical to be telling us that you have a model with a back that doesn't shatter on accidental drops and get one that does shatter on first impact?
All these just spells kids' logic of an impractical logic for displaced sense of design. Unless the battery lasts 10 times longer, and its charging cycle is also 10 times longer, that sealed battery would be well and good. NOT the case - these manufactures wouldn't want that happening, as they stand to lose yearly sales. Then people will just keep their old smart phones because their batteries are lasting such a long time.
You are one that is perpetuating this more fragile, self-destructing method to kill the battery faster, and encouraging renting cloud services. They want you not to complain, do their job of promoting that self-destructing expensive device to sell more. At least the removable battery and memory expandability were the users' way to controlling how they want it to be. Those were good options and even a necessity for many.
AnonD-389805, 22 Aug 2015I'm not that interested in metal bodied phones especially since it almost certainly uses weak ... moreI'm citing the A8 as an example of a very recent Samsung has released with the S6 Egde+ and the Note.5. I wouldn't get it either as I'm using my Note 3.
The fact is, high "premium" phone is beaten by a middle model that has standard micro SD card slot, FM radio. Why pay extremely high that does less? I question all these lessened features and impracticalities so modern kids here think having a more glass and a short-term charging solutions that actually kills that sealed battery faster.
And these tech reviewers don't know any better than to actually promote such nonsense of fast/wireless charging without telling about its short-term consequences - heat being the number one enemy of the battery or that you have to carry all that gear just to keep your phone alive for the entire day.
So much complacency, so much under thinking.
Heyii everyone !!
I wanted to choose between S6 n Note 4.
Decided on Note 4 as i read some users facing heating issues on S6.
Now m reading Note 4 users goin through the same heating issue.
M using S2 since around last 3 years, no heating issue faced Alhumdulillah.
Can someone please give me a reasonable review and opinion.
In sha Allah planning to buy 1 soon ...
And which is the best version of Note 4 ? Is it N910C ? Or which other ?
Many people argue that its time to leave SD and adopt cloud drives,on which i dont hav faith.i cant save my private pics and vids on some company's drive.resent leaks of celebs like jen law,kate upton and salena gomz proves my point.they clearly said that they keep them on 2 different servers for securing them in case of 1 is lost.one is still there if u delete 1.may be they will go through them to learn peoples psychology for their marketing.apple or google non is faithfull.they hav always breached our privacy,its proved..
