I have had Samsung's for 5 years but this is really disappointing. Why on earth would you remove the SD card and then limit the internal storage to 64GB?? I have drop box and sugarsync but no providers (in Australia) offer unlimited downloads, cheap mobile data or anywhere near 100% coverage.
Likewise, why would you get rid of the removable battery then make the internal battery smaller?
If seems like it is all to make a device more like the iPhone. I am pretty sure sales will be poor like the S6 is.
In the mean time, I will stick with my Note 4 and hope the Note 6 has a better battery and more storage or better still an SD card option.
the observer, 13 Aug 2015Disappointed ..... battery must be more than 3000 mAH !!!!!!
It will be a problem with batter... moreyes but it's li-po and this device is efficent way more than note 4 ..
look at s6 edge with 2600 mah and has great battery use cause and it has the same cpu . ..
so this will be even better than note 4 on battery use ..
Non-removable battery? No card slot? Only 3000mAh strong battery? Waste of a new model of Samsung...So dissapointed. I rather prefer to take note 4 instead 5. Thank you very much Samsung...
Fm radio because internet radio eats up alot of traffic that costs alot on money. Streaming kills the small battery. Fast? S6 is slower than an iPhone 6 and full of bloatware in the actuve services department. No SD Card means if you fill up the phone you must upgrade and pay once again hundreds of euros. If you buy a 64 G model, when you sell your phone you will lose, getting the same price as the 32 G version for it. I got the Note 4 1 month ago and I am glad. After disabling bloatware the phone is fantastic. No glass, premium metal and soft plastics, leather s-vuew cover, and options for wireless charging, 128 G micro sdxc. Stil no fm radio. Nite 4 is better.
Samsung have completely lost their own plot... They used to one up the iphone in every way by providing a removal battery, sd card slot and a larger screen with higher resolution. They are gonna get smoked when the new iphones arrive.
Why the heck samsung care more about winning over apple customers,instead of trying to please their own and win over people that don't really care about the brand right now.This looks like sams. launched a glossy iphone.I wonder if apple will lanch a phone with i-Pen anytime soon and move the camera to the center.I understand that internal storage is faster,but only 32 and 64 GB isn't great.No IR blaster also fail.Still no radio.Feels premium,metal and glass,to bad the first thing you gonna buy is a case to protect it.
Why is Samsung copying iPhone?
They don't need to copy iPhone because they already made the world's best smartphone - the Note 4.
I hate they look of the Note 5 it's impractical to have a shiney glass backed phone.
It's now glass backed put it in a cover because it's fragile.
What is the point of pretty glass so called premium look I'd you must cover it with ugly cheap rubber because glass smashes too easily ?
A phone is not a Ming Vase it's a frigging phone - make it practical and durable.
Now I'll watch to see all those people who dropped their phones and have a smashed back - fkn stupid.
If phone crashes I Can't remove battery.
If I want to hand phone down I can't because not easy to buy new battery.
Battery won't last as long because fast charging.
Battery kit now obsolete. The best charging method now dead.
Battery dies on train I can't swap battery it over.
I now can't receive calls, texts, emails, fb, what's up,viber, Skype ...
A phone without removable battery is a disaster.
I'll be like my cousin with his phone attached to his car constantly.
One of the best features they had was the removable battery.
I can't believe they sealed it and made the battery smaller.
No SD card ?? Omg
How do I transfer my address book over?
less is not more.
Is Samsung paid by Apple? it looks like they are.... Are they so stupid to kill the Note series?
Bad, bad, bad Samsung...
I will stay with my Note 4... 4 ever ...
im moving to SONY. better devices. i was a Samsung fan boy. sold all my tablets, phone, and bought Sont Xperia family. best desition.
Once again samsung disappoint me I've had all samasung note series phone's/ phablets up to the note 3 as the I didn't upgrade to note 4 because not much of a difference and now this note 5 is just bull**** not happy might need to look at other brands. I don't care about how a phone feels I need plenty of features IR blaster, better camera, memory expansion etc
I'm not pleased with Samsung recent innovations in smart phones technology.........
the new tabs and smart phones they are making lack the basic facilities which have made Samsung a force to reckon with in the technology world.......
I just can't do without the remote control infra red functions and expandable memory which are largely missing in the S6 edge+ and Note 5..........
I wish Samsung have second thought about the new devices.......
Disappointed ..... battery must be more than 3000 mAH !!!!!!
It will be a problem with battery consumption !!!!!
Jeee, 13 Aug 2015I bought Galaxy Note 4 3 months ago and I'm so happy and leaping for joy throwing dozens upon ... moreYou don't need to be an Apple fanboy to attack Samsung now because ex-Samsung fanboys like myself are all over the place attacking Samsung for the ridiculous things they've been doing.
I bought Galaxy Note 4 3 months ago and I'm so happy and leaping for joy throwing dozens upon dozens of "no-regret" words over sammy's failing world. I couldn't understand why samsung try to win the mobile race against apple trying to accelerate too quickly, forcing the release of their flagship phone early in the competition and not even thinking they're probably ain't gonna get to the finish line first.
Disclaimer: I'm not an apple fan boy because I owned a Note. I just so frustrating seeing "a kid grow in size and build a better-looking body but not getting any healthier at all".
r4du, 13 Aug 2015No Samsung for me ! Huawei, i'm with you ! Same here my friend
samsung once again disappointed..
only time wasting
better to change brand..
I'm feeling sick, I sold my note 4 in order to get note 5 but not this one. I wouldn't call it fifth note. I'd call it a p...e of sh.t
Really disappointed with Samsung... If I wanted a I Phone I would purchase one.
