Anonymous, 12 Aug 2015Looks like I will be getting an iPhone, after being loyal to Samsung for almost 8 years.I agree... Huge screw up on Samsungs part...
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2015People STILL bitching about no SDcard slot!?!?!?! Theres more than enough services out there(... moreNo they are not bitching. If there is anyone bitching it would be your comment given the tone. You must be a very casual user to think people just need to move photos around. Large files such as an emulated game collection or HD movies are not easily or quickly downloaded from these services. In addition to that consider limited data plans.
No need for shouty caps, if you have an opinion post it by all means but not sounding like an imbecile.
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2015People STILL bitching about no SDcard slot!?!?!?! Theres more than enough services out there(... moreCloud storage doesn't work if your somewhere with no wifi or contract signal. My Iphone crapped out whilst I was on holiday a few years ago and I had neither wifi or a signal and lost 80% of my photo's and video's because I had no connection to Icloud or Dropbox so I moved to a Samsung so my photo's would save to a microSD and I wouldn't lose photo's/video's if the phone crapped out. Now Samsung are following Apple utter shite I'm now thinking of going for the LG G4 at my impending upgrade, looks like Samsung have run out of ideas
lollikitkat, 12 Aug 2015Whats the deal with the battery size? Different reports keep flip flopping between 3000mah and... moreI'm in the same boat I can look pass no SD but 3000mah definitely won't purchase the phone... Has to be 4100mah pr better
wow, these guys have lost themselves.... this just chip upgrade not a full cell
hmm looks like my money might go to Apple afterall. No Microsd and removable battery is fine by me but why would they shrink the battery capacity... The dumbest move made by Samsung. Wrong move Samsung
What's going on? 3000mah or 4100mah? I'm so confused, I could look pass no SD slot but a lower battery then the note 4 come on Definitely won't purchase if phone is release with 3000mah
I am pretty sure since there isn't an announcement yet, i am sure that the Note 5 will have a SD card slot but probably packaged in the same slot as the SIM card, I feel certain Samsung has to atleast keep one of the things that Consumers love about THEIR product.
IPhone for me too , why they do away with the card slot not a bright move😕
It wasn't that long ago Sansung did the update on the S4 to JellyBean or it may have been the KitKat system from memory. and they were giving out free replacement batteries as the update caused a 'swollen battery'. Charge would go from 100% to 4% in seconds. This is what worries me.
I'm disappointed as I've been due my upgrade for a while and been waiting for the Note 5. I'm not too bothered about the memory not being expandable but I honestly don't think phone batteries are designed for a 2 year contract.
Looks like I will be getting an iPhone, after being loyal to Samsung for almost 8 years.
bubba0, 12 Aug 2015I'll wait for the note 6, looks like the note 5,is a downgrade from my phone.Well it looks like I'll be keeping my note 4 and will be waiting until the note 6 come out. How is the note 5 smaller than the note 4 can we talk about a downgrade. Nah I'm coo off the note 5
I'll wait for the note 6, looks like the note 5,is a downgrade from my phone.
Bye Note 5, no expandability and battery replacement, many is going for iphone 6s plus and moreover ios 9 is just around the corner. What a waste.
I know a lot of people who carry around multiple batteries for their Note phones. I am one of them. I have 3 extra batteries with an external charger for my Note 4. I also had them for my Note 3 and Note 2. Before the Note series I had the Moment, Galaxy S, and Galaxy S2. When I travel or at work, I don't have time to stand at an outlet to charge my phone. I don't care if 10 min of charging will give you 4 hours of "talk time" hint is talk time. It takes me 20 seconds to go from 2% battery to 100% battery. I'm a very heavy user. I kill my Note 4 battery in 8 to 10 hours. Samsung had teased Apple people about hanging around the wall outlet but now you have to do the same thing with Samsung phones.
With the Micro SD card. It is faster to transfer my pictures and power points from my phone to my computer or my computer to my phone with the micro SD card. I don't have to worry about loading the drivers for the computer to recognize my phone on someone elses computer. Plus if someone so happens to have a virus on their computer, it would only effect the card and not my phone. I can also get a 128GB Micro SD card for 68 dollars equaling 160GB vs paying 200 dollars more for a 128GB internal memory phone. Even if Samsung wanted faster picture taking by going strait internal memory. I still want the option to transfer my pictures to a Micro SD card. I'm not the only one who feels this way. Samsung can do what ever they want with the Galaxy S series phone because it is for the "Main Stream" people. But the Galaxy Note series is for the Business, traveler, power house, and big screen type user. Now they are trying to make it like the Galaxy S series phone. That is a big mistake in my opinion and much more peoples opinion. I guess we will see what happens when the phone comes out. I'm predicting low sales under Note 4 and Note 3 sales.
Oh I have also said when IPhone 3 came out "what idiot puts glass on both sides of the phone?". You seen a lot of broken glass on the IPhones in the front and back those 2 years. Now Samsung is that idiot. Plus glass is very easy for fingerprints smudges. That is why I liked the Note 3 and Note 4 backing because it did show fingerprints and it was grippy. I'm sure I will see a lot of broken back glasses on the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, Note 5, and S6 edge plus. Good job Samsung...lol
I was honestly considering changing over from my iPhone 5 to a note 5. No removable sd. No removable battery. Now I'm leaning towards a note 4. Or just staying iPhone. I'm torn. I want to switch to an android device but I refuse to support those decisions. Any suggestions?
I was really excited for a note 5 upgrade from my Note 1 which is finally dying.
Than I checked out online and think wth is sammy thinking removing the two best parts of the phone.. no way will i pay extra for their memory or pay they them more money to change a battery.. As it stands now i love having 2 batteries, one minute and at 100%, no way will i carry a power bank either..
Bye sammy, hope note 6 is better and I will reconsider.
I will probably pick up a motorola pure now
