At least Samsung learned their mistake and are releasing the 128gb model even though it's only with a few carriers and colors, but Samsung have still screwed up with everything else they removed like.
#1 No SD slot
#2 No removable battery
#3 No MHL for HDMI
#4 No IR blaster
#5 No FM radio
#6 Not being released in Europe
#7 3000mah battery is too small
#8 No USB type-C
#9 the glass back makes it prone to scratches and shattering so it needs a good case thus making it look "better" with glass pointless.
Another iPhone wanna be...
Tsk tsk tsk.. Samsung has lost its originality and going unto a clone..
1. Non removable battery
2. No expandable memory - micro sd card
3. Worst of all, changing from micro sim to nano sim.. WTH!
I have at least 6 Samsung phones, now you want me to change to nano sim? Seriously?? Please keep your identity Samsung, or else this is going to your downfall...
Iphone users will not choose Samsung even if you make it a clone. They prefer apple brand. So, stick to the roots of being an ANDROID!

Sure it has good looks, but its a phone designed to help u more productive, shouldve come with microsdcard, removable battery at least those 2 should present in an upgrade from previous version.
Samsung is doing the evil way of making profits like apple do, why would u even work on biased comment for this now evil company?
If u are a businesman, would u rather have a preety/handsome employee but very limited to resources (note5) or would u rather have employee who s appearance is standard but very high capacity of resources (note4/s5 or other phones with microsd and removable battery)
Samsung is as evil as apple now, switching to other phones that do hear their fans
radio will be Cat 9 LTE (I think I saw cat 6 somewhere in your early specs). frequency coverage per market remains unknown. would love some clarity soon on this folks!

Jhkr, 14 Aug 2015I don't think Samsung will bother Note series anymore, They only bother toy series like s6,s6 ... moreYes. Phone companies should always have NOKIA in mind and the lessons from that company.
kenneth, 14 Aug 2015am still using note 2 now...note 3 design does not appeal to me ..now note 5 seems to be wors... moreI totally agree with you. Samsung has finally confirmed its fear of apple.
Samsung, hy are you trying to be like apple?
Please be yourself.
This will surely affect their sales
To be honest, I am disappointed with Note5! I was so up to buy it, but now, I just dont know what to buy...
First of all S6 gets 128 gb storage, and Note5 32 gb? WTF? What device is going to be used and utilized more S6 or Note5???
No SD card - for device hungry for storage;
No 128 GB - same reason
No IR blaster - My God... NFC and IR blaster for lond was one of the most utilized features @ Android..
I use to like Samsung so much, now it just feels like a bit smarter Apple... S**t...
As for me Samsung got it wrong totally and I can begin to see the fall of Samsung soon. You listen to your customers u don't jst listen to yourself. The way you are liked you will be dislike if less is coming from you. We all known what happened to Nokia and what BlackBerry is facing. Now is coming to Samsung cos they failed to hearkened to customer pain. I don't really think Samsung hv a forum and to sees to opinions from people over d world. Like Microsoft did to Windows 10.Note 5 is no go area Note 4 is much far better. Samsung next plan is to stop producing note 4 in other to make way for Note 5.
Yes to note 4
BIG no to Note 5.
Lastly, Samsung should not forget competitors are really waiting to see them fail. Samsung weakness wil be an opportunity for others. You can't be a champion for ever. The end is coming to Samsung.
what happen!!! to samsung
I supposed to be more upgrading from note 5, but when I compare to Note 4 all their specs are similar, ok, it's say 4 gig ram, but when it come to memory their no card slot!?... (huh!) I expecting more up-gradable not to down-gradable
nock, 14 Aug 2015don't see a big upgrade from Note 4. I think we are reaching the point of saturation.Point of saturation. Good point.
Who cares about a glass back if 90% of the people will be covering it with a grab or case.... duhhhh
[deleted post]I know him. Just a Samsung hater who extensively bad mouth Galaxy Note in general since last year. You'll see him scattered in the Note 4 page. He used to boast his imaginary Sony Z2/Z3. Note that the NotePOINTfive looks even better than that, he's now pretending like an Apple user.

That QWERTY physical keyboard cover for typo-free typing is like the most amazing thing ever!! Thank you Samsung for bringing back the good 'ol days of Nokia dumb phone input - it's going to make me so productive and fast with less errors in my typing my reports to impress my boss!
I wish this for all future Samsung phones! They're going to make a killer sales. I hope I get one soon!
im fine with no SD card
but Non-Removable battery totally deal breaker for me, im not that heavy user but im looking for a long lasting phone,
because basically battery died first then the phone( depend on how you use it )
i already have S5, Planning to upgrade into Much better phone, but S6, S6+ or Note5 is a big no no for me. i guess im going to nOTE 4 ( high end or the lumia 640XL mid range)
