As any logical person would know, the glass back is utterly useless against accidental drops. Yes, get the F****** case - again a counter to the sleek look that Samsung is going after - copying a PAST iPhone design.
So, Samsung, can you just stop with all this silliness of fragile hipster designing? Can you now get your contingent REAL Note5 version for the real Galaxy Note users like me? Preferably with the removable battery and memory expansion.
And of course that glass breaks on the first drop...
unanimous decision, 18 Aug 2015The no more challenge phone now comes out in the market..the note 5. No changes on camera 16mp... moreafter a point the mega pixel of your camera doesn't really matter unless you are gonna blow up your pics to be the size of hoardings and they have added the optical stabilisation which is a feature that was only available in DSLR's till now.
Well first let me say that I too like many other do not like the fact the there is no expendable memory slot or the removable battery...but I can see why they have given these things a miss. What samsung has been criticised the most for is their cheap looks and the materials they use for their products just because for better or for worse they get compared to apple a lot. So they decided to give their product the premium look that everyone is demanding for..but it comes with a trade off....you cant keep pulling open the back cover of your metal and glass phone now...can you? making it all one solid piece also give is volume and stablility..so that once you hold that phone in your hand you can feel its premium quality..

2. In a place with no signal it doesn't hurt your back to carry a mini usb stick or external hard disk. You manage to travel far enough from the full signal of city, why not just make yourself suffer while you at it. No need to worry about the ugly dangling tail of OTG adapter on your phone. Fashion or style is nothing in the remote area.
3. Changing the format to nano sim is not a big deal. Note5 is not the first Samsung device to use it. Galaxy Alpha and the Galaxy A series use it too since last year. People change format from mini sim to micro sim back then too. Being the first to use it does not mean Apple is the inventor.

i was a religious follower of note series right from note , note 2 , note 3 and now note 4, all changed within 1 year of use on the launch dates. I was most certainly looking 4 ward for note 5. I am completely disappointed with note 5 majorly on non removable battery (3000) and no SD card slot. First time i will look for other options this year as note 5 doesn't bring anything more except ram may be n faster processor with slippery body. Note 4 is fast enough for me till i try apple S6 this year .... Let down by Samsung :-(
The no more challenge phone now comes out in the market..the note 5. No changes on camera 16mp (that s5 has). While the other smartphones comes with the 20.7mp with water resistant features that youll feel the "challenge". The feature gimmick of the developer is just selling a brand name samsung. People are so pissed off to this kind of game. Features of the s5 and note are just mix to note 5 just to sell it high in the market again. Im already awaken to this reality.

No such thing as mobike technology at its limit. Smartphone should start implementing 'sticker-sim' slot. Increase ram directly to 8gb and not 1gb per year. Start using aluminum graphite battery for ultra fast charging in 1minute and does not degrade rapidly and even flexible. Use uBeam over-the-air charging (OTA) using ultrasound to transmit electricity. Bring back the faux leather and put self-healing technology. Put 2TB expandable storage. Use sapphire glass. Use magnesium metal. Fujitsu Retina scanner. IP69 with MIL-STD 810G. We don't care if the phone is thick.
I had several Samsung phones, my latest is note 4. I feel like Samsung is going to a different direction with its company. By releasing this note5 and S6 this way, they are trying to be an iPhone wanna be.. or clone if i may say so.
1. Non-removable battery. Sometimes phones hang, and we can't restart it. Even pressing the power button won't help. What do u do? Wait for the phone to drain its battery? So sad...
2. No expandable micro sd card.. how many gigs does the cloud give you? 16 gig? 32 gig? I don't think so. Also, relying on cloud to retrieve your files will take ages (as compared to local drives). What if you are in a place that doesn't have signal- no mobile data and wifi? How can you retrieve your files??
3. As i have said, i owned many Samsung phones. Now they even changed the sim format from micro-sim to nano-sim.. wth? Seriously? Samsung definitely wants to clone iPhone! You have lost all the advantages you have and now stuck to being the same with apple. Too bad...
Remember: for apple fans, they will not simply change brand even if you clone (look alike) the Samsung.. they will stick to their beloved iPhone.. so, Samsung, hope you get back to your roots and see your advantages from iPhone. Maximize it. Not be an iPhone wanna be!

Why there no research on it when Apple release the first iphone with only 1400mah unremovable battery back in 2007. We are considered lucky with the 3000mah.
anonymusbaq, 17 Aug 2015samsung galxy note 4 the best phone ever made.Agree!
Now a days every month new phones come out, with same specs 3g ram, 4gb ram,16 mp, 20 mp camera, can anyone give me the reason why to buy this phone, how is it diff from other phones, its same like other phones whats so extra ordinary about this phone, now a days every phone looks like the same,
Aw yeah, news of Microsoft Surface phone scheduled for early 2016 release, with a digitizer pen! Finally, a worthy competition against the Galaxy Note... Hoping that having a removable battery, out at least a likely memory expansion!
Samsung needs to be reminded that it will lose loyal Note customers with the way it's lessening features.
Meanwhile, some serious things to consider before getting this smartphone...
Having only a sealed battery is like driving without a spare tire. I'm talking about the time when your battery's capacity diminishes. I usually see around just having 40% to 50% loss of power hold onto the battery. You may likely not see this as you only see the percentile being 100%. Also consider that as the battery get old, some of the battery will blimp up, pushing that precious screen out. This was never a problem with a removable battery.
It's screwed sandwhich to the screen:
Critical thinking would warn you what happens with this construction. Yes, folks, Samsung wants us to go as renters of their machines, instead of owners.
Exynos7420 - Mali t760 mp8 was only reach at max 190.0Gflops and this wont
Beat the snapdragon 810 or next 820.
Apple a8x -powervr 6850 was 240.0Gflops and more more more powerful than exynos7420.
In term of graphic performance....note5/s6 still lagging behind...
1440p screen will slowdown the phone for high demanding intensive graphical content..
