Samsung has so many variant in the market. I don't understand why the changed the Note series as it was. Business users loved the way Note series were...to have the option to change the battery, and SD card. I understand Apple stands as they do not have too many mobiles in the market. But Samsung? Very strange strategy. I'll call it a big mistake in the marketing. Not to mention not even offering 128 GB and 256 GB option? Many disappointed business users, but the failure of a company may bring success to other companies. I believe many people are now watching closely LG, HTC and Motorola to see if they can fill this big opportunities. For me I am done with Samsung, and I take my money and put it somewhere where I can buy a product that can suit me, not the company decide for me!
A review had been made by Cnet including lab test. DisplayMate said Note5 have the best screen ever tested. Soneira claim it to have best absolute color accuracy and more power efficient than its predecessor.
sanjay, 19 Aug 2015Note4 is far better than note5 i think just one difference is RAM 3GB against 4GBand the design :P
This is a Noteless 5, 20 Aug 2015unbelievable why they remove IR, is is just small dot on the top, i used it as a remote for my... moreIts not like Samsung consumer have a choice. You want an IR blaster, you still need to choose Samsung. They are the only one offering it in the market especially for flagship. There are only three largest smartphone manufacturer that put IR blaster. Samsung, LG and HTC. LG and HTC offers it mostly in their mid range phone. The sensor is not as small as you think. Definitely not a small dot.
rock, 20 Aug 2015which phone is better- note 4, 05 or huawei ascent mate 7...Go for note 4 its the best now
although the specs might be of a top class..still suks that the phone does not have a card slot and does not have a removable battery.
sanjay, 19 Aug 2015Note4 is far better than note5 i think just one difference is RAM 3GB against 4GBOctacore also
unbelievable why they remove IR, is is just small dot on the top, i used it as a remote for my tv. so i keep my old note 3 then
What is the point if Note5/S6 pack with different cpu??? The mali GPU is still slower than last year Tegra K1/Apple A8x performance.
Exynos7420 - Mali t760 mp8 was only reach at max 190.0 Gflops and this never ever
Beat the current snapdragon 810 or next Sn 820.
Apple A8x -[Power VR-6850] was 240.0 Gflops and more powerful than exynos7420.
In term of graphic performance....note5/s6 still far cry from reaching for top rank in GFX Bench 3.0 [Mannhattan]...
Actually Mali 760 mp8 still not-2 enough juice to run this beast.Samsung should wait for next Snap820[Adreno 530] to be stable release.
Samsung should forget about this underpower arm mali gpu.

Someone here don't even know the idiom 'curiosity kills the cat'. Yes, "cat", not "chat". Its mean that consumers are super curious with the new device but end up disappointed with the specs after a year of waiting.
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2015If people don't complain when manufacturers (Samsung) release products (GN5) that have weaknes... moreTrue. Im complaining too. But complaining here will not fix anything. It does not give direct effect to Samsung. This site is an unofficial channel to complain to them. They don't read the complain here. Btw, Korean are not that literate at English.

But I think this Note 5 could have come with waterproof. Too much money is involved in this phone. I am trying to figure out the impact this phone could have once you get a water damage. While a 4 time cheaper phone does received the waterproof. Let us be honest the bigger battery, much powerful CPU, SD slot and waterproof could make this phone the best ever.
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2015And yet people like you still come here to comment on this phone. Curiosity kills the cat.What is wrong with you. I notice so much negatives comments although the Galaxy Note 5 is the number 1 in daily interest. And compare it to the number 2 daily interest the Moto G3 which is 4 times cheaper than the GNote 5 but having the specs that are missing the waterproof and SD slot. So in which way I come here to kill the chat?
Or should I say the GNote 5 is the best? Maybe that will not kill the chatting. But the problem is not me but the 80% of people that comment negatively that are the problem and yourself. If you have a positive attitude and comment about this phone, then say it.
Guys please don't hate it.
First, About Note 4 Vs Note 5. It's next generation, of course Note 5 is better.
The CPU is different, GPU, RAM, Feature (Wireless Charging/ FAST).
Second, Note 4 Users like to use 2 batterys to swap each other with full one. it is good.
In Note 5, you don't need 2 batterys, it is Li-Po. I don't talk about battery life or swap method. I talk about battery degradation. Samsung tend to use Li-Ion but now Samsung uses Li-Po. I think there is a good reason in it. Like Li-Po is better than Li-Ion in Battery
Degradation, also It's match with Wireless Charging Feature. If Wireless Charging meet
Li-Ion, What will happen? No Good. So, samsung made difficult decision, to use removable
Li-Ion with cable to charge, or to use non-removable Li-Po with Wireless Charging.
Which one do you like? Wireless or Cable? I know if you choose cable you prefer it to swap the battery. Swap battery is not a feature in samsung, it's our daily life feature that we made ours.
Third, IR Blaster, I don't know why samsung remove it. I'm sorry.
Fourth, the glass back panel is happened by taste, what I mean is that leather doesn't look premium for many users, thats why samsung choose glass. of course glass isn't good for drop test than leather. but some user said that it's good for wireless charging.
Fifth, SD Card. it's about speed in SD Card that slower than UFS 2.0 (Internal Storage) not only that, SD Card can't save file 4GB or more in single file. in near future, you will need 4GB or more to save in single file.
I'm not right in everything, but at least this is the right one in my opinion. Of course, I know there is many other opinion out there, so for my bad comment, I want your forgiveness.

it was a good inprove about a Non-removable Li-po battery for the customer security but it still has the unsecure OS android.. another things 3 000 mAh really ?.. it needs at least 5 000 or 8 000 mAh people uses the phones alot! samsung phones still plastic desponsible phones like lg htc etc.. untill they uses their own secure OS and amazing non removable batery then it would beat definetely iphones.. and ill be proud to have a galaxy but right now.. Android? no thanks
