TheNeighbor, 14 Aug 2015The Galaxy NotePOINTfive has practically less features than the first 4 Notes, even with all t... moreThere are actually more feature added to it. Better than Note 4. A device truly made for multitasking.
am still using note 2 now...note 3 design does not appeal to me ..now note 5 seems to be worse than note 4 .....why must Samsung follow iphone design with non-replaceable battery and non-expandable SD card slot ??...samsung will fail in their Note 5 . Note 5 now lost its original identity and soon become S series phone . Note 4 will be my target to change . Samsung need to seriously address to the needs of their note fans .
Maybe the battery will last longer than note4 just wait,a question does it have infrared or air gestures?
gigi becali, 14 Aug 2015NO card slot?! Well, in my opinion this is a big fail! I'll stick with my Note3 waiting for Note6.Keep waiting...
Reason why Samsung Note 5 is thinner, only has 3000mAh battery and no microSD slot.
1. Trimming down battery size allows the phone to become thinner. Samsung thinks people like being thin.
2. Samsung may have collaborated with a Power Bank company like Mophie. They trimmed down the battery so you'll buy a case with built in battery, then a percentage of that sale will be given to Samsung. This equates to more profit to both Samsung and that company.
3. No microSD means you'll buy the version with bigger capacity. This means more profit again.
P.S: Personal opinion only.
Nishant India, 14 Aug 2015The most disappointment is that there is no Card slot in Note 5. As the internet speed in Indi... moreYes u r right bro.in pakistan we also have low speed internet.
And sumsung barttery also low consumption.
I am using huawei mate 7 gold version for one year. 4g dual sim 32gb internal and 64 gb ssd card i m using and my 3g network all day working and browsing gaming and music videos .2 days of battery timing
gigi becali, 14 Aug 2015NO card slot?! Well, in my opinion this is a big fail! I'll stick with my Note3 waiting for Note6.and then wait for note7, and then note 8 and so on.........
SD creates many problems regarding OS.. OTG is the best way for the Memory
It is a step backwards with respect to Note 4, since they removed the possibility of increasing memory storage via microUSB, which have in the Note 4 32Gb + 128Gb (microUSB) = 160GB versus 64GB Note 5. Moreover, the Note 4 has interchangeable battery, compared to Note 5, which must to be serviced for replacement. The only advantage of Note 5, is the 30% increase in processor speed. The Note 5 is the only "Note" only exceeds the "S" (s6) range in the pen. While the Note 4 was better to S5, and s4 Note 3 than in speed. Then it seems that Samsung would not exceed the s6, to help increase sales of s6. And surely invent a more powerful version of Note 5 a few months, while increasing sales with s6.
I have all the note series am a big fan.
Now its over no removable battery and no SD slot
Am switching to HTC.
If new Edge model is a + variation of SG S6 Edge, then why is there Note 5? It should be SG Note 4+.
No SD Card
No Removable Battery
No gesture controls
Not comparable to the far superior Note 4!
for me samsung died after the release of s6 and note series died now after note 5 i am gonna switch to xperia Z4 its awesome and i love it because i don't wanna be ran out of ram and storage
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2015Same battery type as iPhones. Basically last longer more durable. But at the expanse of les... moreThere is no difference between li-ion and li-pol batteries in capacity the difference is in the internal structure of the battery where carbon or metal plates are replaced with polymeric ones and the result is more resistant battery against the leak of li atoms from the structure and more battery charge/discharge cycles which results in longer life and usage of battery pack.
