Anonymous, 13 Aug 2015Note 3 and note 4 seems wayyyy better than this.I can't agree more.. the lake of removable battery and expandable storage is a deal breaker.
This makes me Ashamed of being a loyal Samsung user
I'm very disappointed and now my last hope is 2016
I am very disappointed to note 5 more worth buying the NOTE of XIOAMI, IPHONE 6S or ONEPLUS 2 ... will happen to the same as NOKIA SAMSUNG SAMSUNG goodbye
Since 2009 has been using Samsung. All of note series I have. Last year for the first time I bought iPhone 6+. I was disappointed by Samsung many times but this time the most. In iPhone 6+ software is optimized, no bloatware like Samsung and has 128GB maximum storage and also standby time is incomparable with android. Samsung is the master in storage business but sad that they could not accommodated more than 64GB of storage.
This is what happened when you don't have left any real competition in market. Samsung has seen it's top and now it's gonna go down. Very disappointing upgrade.if you note 2, 3 or 4 user ,still you don't need an upgrade. And note 5 you don't need at all if you own any of previous device. Plain peace of junk and marketing gimmicks note 5 is . Everyone hate the apple in first place because of its non removable battery and sd card, Samsung did that blunder in s6 thought they Gona leave note series out of this .. but they have to put last nail in coffin. RIP
I didn't think Samsung could possibly screw the Note 5 up any further but amazingly they have by not having a 128gb model available, or at least not at launch anyway just like they did with the S6.
So let's count down what they've done wrong;
#1 No SD slot
#2 No removable battery
#3 3000mah battery is pitiful
#4 No 128gb model
#5 No IR blaster
#6 No MHL for HDMI output
#7 No USB type-C
#8 Glass back will make it slippery and prone to scratches so needs a good thick case.
I'm sure more problems will also come to light as people get their hands on it.
TigerTabish, 13 Aug 2015Disappointed. I own Note 2 than Note 3 And Currently i am using Note 4, When i Buy Note 2 it w... morei think you ment note 5 not note 4 with all the cons you mentioned! ive got the note 4 and after looking at the note 5 specs the is no way i will go for the note 5 if they go back to removable battery and sd card that i use alot and the IR blaster i will go for the note 6 if not i guess bye bye samsung if i was to upgrade my note 4 but i think i will last with the note 4 for around another 1-3 years aslong as they update the software that takes ages!
Theoracle , 13 Aug 2015Before this so many people laughed why iPhone have no card slot but they don't realise that it... moreIf i feel iphone is better and more functional then android then i'd be using iphone now, but its not, so im using android. Samsung is making their own phone as useless as an iphone, so i will still laugh at iphones and also note 5 and s6, and move on to other phone which is functional, thats why they call it SMARTPHONE in the first place
And as for note 5, s6, icrap, they all should change their naming to STYLEPHONE, cause its not smart enough to help power user getting more functions.
I am surprised it doesn't come with a free selfie stick (like, totally). After all, that seems to be who Samsung is targeting. It used to be the Note line consisted of power devices for power users: it was the tops. They have been removing power user features at an alarming rate over the last year. 2 theories: 1) Samsung doesn't care about power users any more. It is the dominant Android brand, and they don't feel the need to dazzle the way the used to. 2) Samsung is intentionally stripping Android phones of features with the hopes of driving users to some future iteration of its perennially "under development" Tizen system.
Disappointed. I own Note 2 than Note 3 And Currently i am using Note 4, When i Buy Note 2 it was awesome device, Note 2 comes With 5.5" 720p Display, 8MP, and 2GB Ram, 16Gb With Micro SD Slot and 3100mAh Battery, Than Note 3 Comes the Monster it comes With 5.7" 1080x1920 Display, 13MP 2160p, 3GB RAM, 32GB With Micro SD Card and 3200mAh
Battery. that was Incredible device. and Than Note 4 come the Beast comes with 5.7" 1440x2560 pixels Display With Metal Frame Design, 16MP 2160p, 3GB RAM, 64GB With micro SD Card and 3220mAh battery, that was the excellent device i ever have. and Now Aug, 13, 2015 Note 5 Comes with Nothing, Just upgrade the Ram 3 to 4 and a Bit Processor, and Battery 32200 to 3000 bullshit even Note 2 comes with 3100mAh Battery it means Note 2 still have better battery than Note 5.
Note 4 no 4K Display
Note 4 no Micro SD
Note 4 no Water Proof and Dust Proof
Note 4 no Removable Battery and Back Cover
Note 4 no 20MP Camera
Note 4 Nothing Special and Big, Like the Old's
Anonymous, 13 Aug 2015Why would you want card ?? 32gb is not enough ?? My s5 internal 32gb all wasted for offline maps, games (asphalt, real racing, etc), Samsung bloatware, google crapware, only left 300mb of 32gb. So u tell me, is 32gb internal memory enough to justify an upgrade?
I put 64gb micro sd on my s5, i put movies (ripped dvd 1080p about 4gb each), tutorial movies i download from youtube, songs about 5gb total, photos.
Would u be seriously using clouds to watch 2 hours dvd video on your phone with data transfer all the time? U must be super rich then.
And what do u do when u take an airplane and wanna watch movie with flight mode on?
So u tell me. Is 32gb enough?
Same here dude! That keyboard case is awesome. And the phone is simply awesome.
