Well I have been a Note fan since I laid my eyes on the Note 3 I converted from Apple because.. Samsung actually gave me something more than what Apple would never offer. I was excited to hear news that the Samsung Note 5 came out, I have been waiting for samsung to release it for some time now, but it is sad because now I feel like the Note 5 and the Apple 6plus really aren't that different. No removable battery, my note 3 battery is 3100 and the note 5 at 3000? Why would I downgrade, it's sad to say this might be the end of my business with the Samsung devices as I probably will be jumping ship to the newer iphone when it launches in the fall. I had high hopes, and the Note 5 is deff not a phone I will be considering.. :(
only thing i am missing from Note 5 is theme and i hope it will get added to note 4 sometimes in later 2015.
I have been waiting for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 for couple of months whether I have satisfied with my Samsung Galaxy Note 4. But after unpacking Samsung Galaxy Note 5 I'm really disappointed due to only upgrade front camera from 3.7 mega pixel to 5 mega pixel and RAM from 3 GB to 4 GB. But my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is bigger battery which is 3220 mAh than Samsung Galaxy Note 5 which is 3000 mAh with internal storage capacity 32 GB and expandable storage capacity upto 128 GB which is not expandable in Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and it fixed upto 64 GB. And also almost all features are same with Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and I am happy that my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 have removable battery which is more comfortable from Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Ya the design of Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is better. But only for design, front Camera and RAM, should I upgrade to Samsung Galaxy Note 5 from Samsung Galaxy Note 4???
No SD card, no removable battery !! Forget it. Samsung have ruined their best phone. Bye Bye.
Samsung.. you have destroyed my hope.. I wont buy this crap anymore.. bye2 samsung
Even though I'm not satisfied with the note 5 hardware, the new touchwiz is quite impressive. Will the note 4 get the same touchwiz update?
I had experience with Samsung Galaxy Note 1, For the first year of using, I was satisfied by the phone but after that it is going lag and lag. Even tough it had downgraded to Gingerbread. So I am not interest anymore with Samsung. I am not a fanboy but I am using iPhone 5s. I am satisfied by this phone for my working-communication.
With all the major important features that most of us value are gone, even the first Galaxy Note is better to buy than this Note5. So therefore I can call it the Galaxy Note.5 (NotePOINTfive) because it's half of a Galaxy Note ought to be.
Anonymous, 13 Aug 2015Samsung need to do the following to make this an exciting phone:
6 inch screen
Remove bloa... moreInfrared port
At least 20 mega pixel rear 8 mega front camera
I could learn to live with uni body design if there was a better battery, but wouldn't upgrade without the sd card. Fortunately I'm happy with the note 4 as indeed I was with the note 2. I just hope they restore the sd card next year or I shan't bother upgrading again shame really, if you really listen as you say!! samsung
Curve glass on the edge is the only thing upgrade on this device for me. Not really a pull out from Note 4. Jeez, a few pic and video taken from Note 5, your SD card space will just poof! They should have considered at least 64GB to 128GB if they will remove the SD slot.
the observer, 13 Aug 2015Disappointed ..... battery must be more than 3000 mAH !!!!!! It will be a problem with batter... moreSamsung designer should be fired. I buy Samsung for the SD card. Now I will just buy LG. they never understand why majority don't buy iPhone. I think it's going to be a no sale. Two months big discount just like S6. If I am going to buy this phone, save money buy Xiaomi note 2. Save 2/3
Hmmm with Samsung not listening to it's customers and dropping good features and only caring about a vain glass back that'll never be seen with a protective cover, I'm reminded of BlackBerry and Nokia.
F**ck you Samsung. You are trying too hard on copying Apple. The best phone you have ever made was no doubt the Note 4, and instead of improving what was an amazing phone, you're downgrading the Note series. This Note5 sucks in every way. No more microSD (and it was going to be less bad if at least there was a 128GB option, but there isn't), no more infrared, no more removable battery (they've could compensate this by putting a bigger battery, but au contraire, the battery is 220mAh smaller than the Note 4), a stupid glass design which I imagine it will be fragile as f**ck, the phone will not launch to Europe, and hardware-wise for example, there's almost no reason to choose this phone over the GS6, bot have chipset, same camera, etc. If you think the GS6 ruined the Galaxy S series, wait for this one to ruin the Galaxy Note series, which is disappointing since I was really looking forward to this phone, but now, forget it, if you want a good phablet, buy the Moto X Style.
Battery less than 3000 .. Holi cow...
Everything same except few changes. Not worth
What a horrible end to an expectant wait......... Sorry Samsung you've let me down. I can live without the user replaceable battery, I'm doing that now with my Sony but no sd card?
I'm in India where coverage (3g) isn't always great and what little there is is subject to expensive plans so the no sd is a deal breaker. I'll be moving to the LG g4. I hope you guys realise what a mess you've made
without sd card 64 gb not enough for me . How much app memory free in 64 gb? note 4 and note 3 is the beat phone. nobody like without sd card at this time samsung note 5 bye bye
