I have used the Note3 and Note4.. all I can say is that I am very happy with its performance. I am still using my Note4 because I truly love it esp expanding and switching cards from time to time... I wont deny the fact that I love looks of Note5, but thats just it. Since they have removed the memory card slot and removable battery, that makes me to not love it. Very bad move from samsung! Plus the fact that the battery was reduced?.. oh a very very very big stupidity. Note4 drains fast, how much more, how much more the Note5..
Note5 is just a superslim, supersexy and most powerfull smartphone till date..there is just no comparision .
just use OTG usb sticks for additional external storage .
low battery capacity is not a big deal because of 14nm chipset.
Use a good quality Powerbank thats it.
but why samsung why no IR remote control on note5 ??.this is just a stupid move.
I'm kinda Galaxy Note guy. But Galaxy Note 4 is better than this. What is this shit? I
Samsung period is over now,introducing copy like iphone sets it will sure kill the brand,i used note 3 and now using note 4,never ever buy note 5
Samsung will lose a good part of the market share for this failure. Especially the Note 5 is a step back, and this mistake will cost a lot of.
Sorry but Samsung made a step back...
Despite my disappointment I would like to know if this new Note 5 has a better sampling times than the shameful low 5Hz? Unfortunately Samsung let down the sampling time to low at the last Note gadgets.
AnonD-420989, 15 Aug 2015Sorry Samsung . I was a fan from the note 1 but now ... this specifications will definitely ... moreMe too... You perfectly right! Samsung made this time a big market mistake. The Note 5 is nothing else than a Samsung Galaxy S6+ with a stilus.
The iPhone has never had an Sd Card nor removable battery but its selling. What we have to realise is that there are lots and lots of fake SD Card on the market which affects the phones performance and functionality but customers unknowingly would end blaming Samsung for manufacturing inferior products. The Galaxy S6 and Note 5 phones faster and also more powerful than the SD Cards currently on the market.
m a big fan of samsung note series... was awaiting for Samsung note5 more than 2.5 years. i seriously expected note5 to have more features but samsung note 5 is like note2 on steroids...not tat worth to buy...
The Note 5 is a complete joke. It has a smaller, non-removable battery and offers little more in real performance terms that the Note 3, let alone the Note 4. The Note 2, 3 and 4 all had bigger batteries.
Best of all, of course, none of the Note 3 or Note 4 accessories will work with the Note 5. Then to cap it all it won't be available in Europe this year. Then add in that anyone in Europe who is coming up for their 2nd anniversary of getting the Note 3 on a two year contract, will have no upgrade path within the Note range other than the Note 4 and that is a questionable upgrade, especially after it being out for almost a year.
Let's not also forget there is also a question mark over whether there will even be a 128 GB version too. Then add in that Samsung's track record for updates is attrocious, why would anyone in their right mind go with Samsung any more?! It wouldn't be so bad if at least there was an S6 plus but no only the S6 Edge+. All in all the whole scenario is a joke! Samsung is now standing in a mess entirely of its own making.

Its A note 4 minus a few details.
Chip change and no SD card and smaller battery.
Anonymous, 15 Aug 2015Regarding the no FM radio complain. Do you see the word 'To be confirmed' at the specs sheet? ... moreFM chips aren't included by the manufacturers they just happen to have an FM receiver built into the WIFI module that gets made by other manufacturers and Samsung refuses to activate them, and this isn't cell carriers disabling them either because they are also disabled on factory unlocked phones.
