I am an owner of the note 4 and I personally think that the new note 5 should have been more powerful and build out of metal
I also should have had a micro sd card slot and bigger battery
Anyway it still is a good phone with awesome multitasking and great camera
The 3000mah have become a standard among flagships. The Note Edge, Moto X Style and LG G4 all have 3000mah battery. Even Iphone 6 Plus have only 2915mah battery. The thickness doesn't seem to matter. Moto X Play with 11.1mm thickness could offer user bigger battery than 3000mah. It should improved by next year for all flagships. Stay with your old phone if it still works. Don't use a new flagship as an excuses to buy new phone. Or purposely break your old phone to buy new one. Try to be thrifty people.
SKYGUIDE, 14 Aug 2015Before I was thinking about to buy samsung with removable battery, it was 2 years ago..but now... moreI have a 4-yr-old Galaxy S3 still running smooth and bright without a single trip to the service center because I kept changing the batteries myself and past on to my relatives and so on to their children. This is a great advantage of having a removable battery, and it's lesser wastage by changing a smartphone every 1 or 2 years right?;)
OMG !!! No Card Slot ?? Going back to stone-age or COPYING competitor...This product is a No-No for me - an owner of GalaxyNOTE series.
This phone is waste - no memory card slot, no FM radio, no user replaceable battery.
My dream was Note5
Stupid Samsung Note 5 !!!!!
I Hate it
After this phone has arrive at Malaysia it maybe will be expensive as well but many people will go and buy Xperia M5 to save $$$ .
We Apple fanboy never complain about no microsd, non removable battery, no ir blaster, no spen blah2..But one thing for sure even Samsung makes this iPhone wannabe, We Apple Fanboy will never buy this phone.

Very dissapointed in Samsung,note series shouldn't have fallen under the new design with no expandable storage and removable battery :(

If Samsung doesn't generate enough profit from Note 5 there will be no sd slot for the S7 or Note 6 or any good feature. Please understand that Microsoft holds patent to FAT file systems in sd card and all android manufacturer that put sd slot in their phone have to pay the patent royalties. Microsoft amazingly able to generate $2 billion per year from android alone. It also the main reason Apple devices stay away from it and Nexus as well since Google is a direct competitor to MS.
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2015I see here people complaining about other people who wants SD card and battery, they are still... moreI think either way people should have that choice or opinion! Seems pretty plain and simple!
Consumers ask for metal frame, that good to have a nice frame. But we never ask for glass back, we dont mind the plastic back cover actually as it allow us to replace the battery (samsung phone battery life cycle suck) & expanding sdcard is good to have.
Upgrade note 3 to lollipop kill the note 3 with terrible battery life. Not sure when android M arrived, will it kill this note 5?
AnonD-183089, 15 Aug 2015after this failure of note series I took the decision to keep on my note 4! but guys you have ... moreYep, I was going to give my wife my Note 4 to upgrade her phone and buy a GN5 (having owned all 4 notes so far). Instead i have just purchased an LG G4 for her and will keep using my current Note 4 for another 12 months.... If the GN6 doesn't improve i will start looking at other brands.... :-(
SAMSUNG, removable batteries and SD cards are a major selling point over the iPhone... Why get rid of those advantages just for looks?? (at least you could have include an SD card and increased the battery to 4000 mAh)
after this failure of note series I took the decision to keep on my note 4! but guys you have to put into your consideration that samsung will not produce more note 4 for the markets also may stop updates or delays them a lot to force users to go for the new note 5 ...this is what am thinking about now!
Google got the Project Ara for some reasons, one of the reasons is to let customers have the right to know which part of their smartphone is faulty and removable. So Samsung, pls retain the removable battery pls. Android is about customization, not the Apple way.
our suggestions? 128 gb, more zoom, make it bigger the screen 5.8 to 6.0, high quality speaker / sounds
what I want to add to note 5 is... more zoom, good quality sounds. more time for taking video.. I think note 3 has a good quality of sounds,, and lastly ... why note 5 is a bit smaller
than note 3? but they are the same size both 5.7 inch.. we like the size of note 3 bigger is better.. if Samsung makes 5.8 everybody happy thanks pls.. bigger is better..
