This is a total downgrade from the note 4. Do NOT buy this and let Samsung know they are doing it wrong.
I really don't get it. They removed features. No infrared, no removeable battery, no sd card, bigger battery.
Is this really an upgrade?
When it comes to battery, They say the new chipset is very efficient. Even if, Why would you go with a lesser capacity battery. We would like to have atleast 2 days of decent phone usage with a better battery. We all know that the charging cycle declines on the long run. So why not a better battery backup? With the non expandable storage, that is another bottleneck. Most of the bloatware and apps takes a majority of the space. With that 16MP, The file size would be from 3-5MB and if it supports RAW, that would be 10-15 MB per file. What are you ultimately paying that 900$ off contract for. At the Samsung, on every new phone launch they have always managed to increase the prices. Clever marketing gimmicks samsung !!! The faster charging means decreased battery life on the long run. Non removable battery means, you are surrendering to samsung by yourself to buy their next flagship. Literally, they don't want you to see, what the inside of their phone looks like. Samsung fans pls excuse. I would prefer a phone with a better battery, an expandable storage and a high resolution camera any day !!!
I love this phone. I have a Note 3 but will sell it soon. Who cares about removable SD card and removable battery? I never need those things. And the style of this phone is awesome. ON top of all: I WANT THAT KEYBOARD CASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Selling my Note 4 in two days, will be upgrading to this as soon as it is available to purchase. Will be nice to have 64GB onboard memory instead of fumbling with a stupid SD card. Thanks Samsung, plus the nice camera upgrade is exciting.
As if that even matters? I have a 32gb note 4 with 32gb SD card, now I can finally get a 64gb all on-board memory so that's fantastic. Removable Battery? The only time I ever did that was to get my SIM and SD in and out LOL. So really doesn't affect anything.
DO not buy this. This phone is nothing more than an incremental upgrade, if even that. The missing micro-sd should be a big hint that this phone is not up to par.
Forget Samsung Sony experia 5 is our last hope or better yet the s6
Anonymous, 13 Aug 2015Why would yo need more than 32gb on a phone ? Some people actually use their phone and it's features and for people like me out of 132gb on my Galaxy S5 I've got less than 20gb left.
And no I have no intentions of putting all my files on the cloud ready to be hacked or unable to access when I have no Internet connection.
Seems like samsung is digging its own grave... Samsung customers would shift to lg....
I love Samsung Galaxy Note but 5 don't really impress me. Maybe I need some more exploring before I can make my final conclusion. However, I am so happy with my Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Hello Note5
I can charge my phone %100 with removable battery for only 1 minute and I dont have to back up my photo and video via clouds account thanks to microsd card and i can copy my friends computer data very fast thanks to microsd card.Without removable battery and microsd card memory. Screen and processor is not everything. Note 5 is very big downgrade product.
Anonymous, 13 Aug 2015Why would you want card ?? 32gb is not enough ?? no sir, it's not.
this is really disaster
No SD slot
