wow i guess i wont be upgrading to note 5 then :(no memory card slot and no removable battery which is a huge selling point for me. dam greedy capitalism.
The removable battery won't cause a problem at all and the SD Card situation won't be a problem either because android phones have the Google photos app where you sync your pictures to the cloud and you have unlimited storage, the memory of the phone will be used for files and apps, so make sure you don't download apps that take a lot of memory like Facebook, Instagram, Walmart, Target or other apps.

Before you run out and buy the Note 5, check out the specs on the upcoming LG G4 Pro. The G4 has everything power users want in a phone plus extras! I can't think of one single reason to buy the Note 5 over the G4. It has a better camera, same ROM/Internal storage, 27/8MP camera and an SD card slot capable of 2TB.

If I paid the same price for the phone look like iphone. I should get a iphone instead. They should know why the people switch from iphone to android, because of the removable battery and extendable sd card. I think LG and APPLE should thanks the new samsung galaxy s6 and note 5 designer.
Android user looking for freedom with s6 and now note 5 user r limited no sd card no removeable battery shorter battery life mean No Android,samsung coping iphone so why not we r shifted on iphone,i bet with these kind of smartphone samsung will struggle to achieve their dreams,iphone and even Nokia will dominant in future,
jond11, 12 Aug 2015Didn't Samsung already introduce this phone ( galaxy S6 )? Oh I'm sorry this is ground break... moreHopefully your question is not rhetorical. Personally for me, I'm fine with the non-removable battery and the no SD card thing. I'm anxiously waiting for the new S Pen features for this new Note. And I don't hate other brand too. For me, the Galaxy Note series was made for it's S Pen functionality and features.
There was Micro SD or Sim card Slot below Volume button . My opinion was they maintain Note 5 Specs upto launching date

And that was when I swore I'd only use phones with removable memory since no matter what happens to the phone you just pull the card and everything's fine.
The battery is under the NFC, they would need to re engineer quite a bit. This is not possible since production probably started a few months ago.

Richard Yarrell, 12 Aug 2015Show how much you know. The Exynos 7420 14nm processor is the best on the market period. If I ... moreyou forgot one thing and that is that it has a bigger screen and so increasing the battery is a necessity but you forgot that it's quad HD and the processor will be the same Exynos 7420 and not the 7422. So in no way will the galaxy note 5 have better battery life. I can see it being better than the note 3 by just a margin but the Note 4? I'm not sure
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2015I can see the Battery life sucking😞Show how much you know. The Exynos 7420 14nm processor is the best on the market period. If I get 23 to 32hrs uptime with 5 to 6hrs on screen time on my S6 then that means I will easily get 32 to 48hrs uptime with easily 10hrs on screen time on my Note 5.
The Note 5 will come with the new Exynos 7422 14nm processor which is the all in one epop solution and even if it doesnt and it arrives with the same processor as the S6 it will still be overclocked which means better performance and better battery life.
The S6 has 2550mah so 3000mah on the Note 5 and S6Edge means monster battery life not like the Snapdragon 805 28nm processor on the Note 4 it's an entirely different world you need to do your homework
Anonymous, 12 Aug 2015Looks like I will be getting an iPhone, after being loyal to Samsung for almost 8 years.Makes no logical sense.
ByeSammy HelloMoto, 12 Aug 2015I was really excited for a note 5 upgrade from my Note 1 which is finally dying. Than I check... moreAre you serious? ..No replaceable battery? .. That was the WHOLE reason I moved to galaxy note. Totally a deal-breaker for me.
