I think my note 4 is my last samsung phone i love it. I hope samsung will bring back the features of note 4 to note 6. If this not gonna happen i will buy 2 new note 4 for the last 7 years becuz iam sure bote 4 after some months will be more expensive than a crap called note 5
Why do you need a SD card when u have 128gb storage.It's perfect 4gb ram it's carzy fast and the camera has improved.The design is perfect.The only problem is no ir blaster.who needs a uv sensor in a phone??????????!!?!and li-po battery is better than li-lon
Suprisingly Note 5 already available in singapore since 15 Aug. Gotten a black and a gold 64GB. So far am impress with the design and physical specs, especially where that little different in size does make some great comfortable in one hand operation. Beautiful display and lollipop works swifty as compared with previous note I use with OTA lollipop upgrade. Come with the sales the wireless pad and a Samsung clear case. If to compare with a fruity smartphone, well its on different platform for any serious comparision; I truly enjoies the smart display of many widgets where that's what a smartphone about (at least for me). Rather than having to access every app just to get a glims of a little information not so smart after all. Most of all I would not be associated in support any unnatural union that against the odds. I am not against but just am not in support of the unnatural.
Back to the note 5, I am so far happy with and count my blessings for launching in Singapore this soon. Last but note least, the battery is have much better performance vs previous Note that I just ditched. Superfast charge where I hope the battery do catch up with Sam's charging technology and hope it last for a decent number of working life since its non detachable. * after about 24hrs of having the Note 5 upon writting this share. Do pardon me if any part of the avove do inflict any unfavourable remarks to anyone reading. Cheers.
1-Non removable battery
2-No Sd card slot
3-No Fm Radio
than no more samsung...
*in the past i used Note2, Note3, Note4 most important thing is removable battery for me.( i dont care design, i dont care fingerprint etc.)
eyeshield, 15 Aug 2015Does it has fm radio? Gsmarena not sure yet...i just want to know :)Reason for not buying Note 5
-No UV sensor
-32/64 gb is not enough(even navigation app takes 8GB)
-No IR blaster
-No IP67 certificate(even it is sealed)
-less battery capacity(that also LI-PO,it damages after 7 to 8 months)
-No DLNA(even note 3 had)
-No memory card support
-No removable battery,only 3000mah for 5,7 inch screen
-No upgrade in camera
-No upgrade from note 4
paying even $800 for this phone is waste of money. -samsung is new titanic
This Samsung note 5 is a joke right? I believe Samsung is just playing prank with her loyalty fans. How else can one explain a supposedly note 4 upgrade without any noticeable upgrade ; no SD card, no IR blaster,no FM, non replaceable and lower battery capacity etc. The only plus is the design. Having used all the previous notes; I'm definitely sticking with my note 4 while earnestly waiting for Samsung note 6 or note 5 neo.
AnonD-22824, 16 Aug 2015So u do consider urself a "HYPOCRITE" right?So, basically, there is no such 11,000mAh power bank that charges "40 minutes"...
TheNeighbor, 16 Aug 2015Dang, almost got it correct except "b".So u do consider urself a "HYPOCRITE" right?

If you charge twice a day due to heavy user, expect only 5 mouths of good battery efficiency. That's FACTUAL.
You guys are weird. Buy a wireless charging powerbank. Don't you realize the Note 5 have wireless charging? Keep complaining about needing cables and tail sticking out of the phone.

Let me tell you buddy, not everyone live a luxurious travelling lifestyle for work like your family. Powerbank really are more versatile and convinient compare to having multiple battery change. I can plug it in to my smartphones and tablets of multiple brands. My family share many powerbank. Who said powerbank are bulky and need cable? Buy a slim powerbank that work with Qi charging. That the point of Buying Note 5. Why do you think Samsung make their own OEM powerbank.
1- Non removable battery
2- No memory card slot
3- No Infrared port
4- Reduced battery capacity from 3220 mAh (Note 4) to 3000 mAh (Note 5)
5- No UV sensor
6- Glass back cover

AnonD-22824, 16 Aug 2015Exactly it does not take a genius to understand that nobody needs to b a HYPOCRITE.on a tech site.Dang, almost got it correct except "b".
I think power banks are awesome. They charge my extra batteries much more efficiently... at home.

They're pretty bulky, alright. Points why and how I use them:
1. My Note 8 only lasts 5 hours screen on when I need to use an extra screen.
2. I charge my Bluetooth earphones with them, and they turn off automatically reducing the risk of running the tiny battery it has. I use the lowest ampere.
3. I charge my extra batteries in the go, and when I carry a bag. Again, they turn off automatically when batteries are full.
4. Yes, as someone suggested here, sharing power makes you popular... No, wife doesn't charge even her extra batteries, that's why I let her use one when she needs it for long travels.
5. Extra power source for my portable HDD to get my files directly... and more than ever for the poor people who are getting a NotePOINTfive.
But for my usual, the light extra battery is it. At times when I don't need to do CAD on the go, I carry no bags for my laptop, no power bank, no charger, just that one light thing besides the wallet, smartphone.
