This is rather no surprise being that Samsung keeps trying to "Keep Up" with Apple instead of being "BETTER". For Samsung to remove the Micro SD Card (Something Apple has never had), and to include a Non-Removable sealed battery (Something Apple has always done), it just goes to show that Samsung believes they can lure Apple Users by making the Note 5 Closer to what the iPhones are, but in fact they are only giving Apple followers more ammunition to poke fun and drag "US" Samsung Note loyal customers even more now.
Wanna be Apple Phone lover is not what I want to be called, so Samsung needs to sit back and once the numbers are in on the Note 5 and they realize they didn't sell 1/2 of what they wanted or expected, hopefully they will scrap this model and come out with a Note 6 ASAP with Micro SD and Removable Battery which is what has kept most Note users from switching to iPhones.
Non removable battery, no memory expansion. Looks like LG G4 just won
I've been Samsung lost since the S3 had many models since. Current phone is an note 3. I was looking forward to the release of the note 5 UNTIL I discovered no expansion slot for memory and no removable battery. BYE BYE Samsung you stupid greedy twits.
I get my new iPhone 6 plus tomorrow because if there is nothing to separate you from the competition then im going to the competition. Will be first time ios user.
No SD slot? No removable battery? Sounds like the note series just got neutered. Time to research an alternative. Let's hope this info isn't accurate.
it's like getting a car without A/C and just an AM radio... I cannot believe they ditched the external card and cannot replace a battery.... this will be a failure
Wont be getting anymore Galaxy products, Going to IPhone since no removable battery or sd card slot on the Note 5, That was my big draw. Bad move for Samsung, they are now just another IPhone want to be.
Dude I need micro sd and removal battery...or at least have the micro sd I do alot of stuff with my Samsung note 3..and I hope note 5 have micro sd
Stupid samsung they r trying to beat iPhone so they got to the micro SD out? Hahah I need micro sd
Manemzjum, 11 Aug 2015Oh well they have increased the pixel density from 515 to 517 What a massive massive upgra... moreI currently have an iPhone and had my eye on the note 4 until I heard about the 5. Now with minimal improvements and a few downgrades I think I will stick with getting the 4.
Indeed no SD card slot or removal battery is not going to make me want to upgrade my note 4. Samsung didn't even add IP65/68 for protection or add manual features to their camera. Samsung please step up! or I'm stepping out.
The battery is tiny, with such processing abilities and android system and apps in back-ground, it would not last half a day!!!
For a device of 5.66inch display with quad hd resolution 3000mah is just not enough to meet the expectations.Atleast 3300 to 3500mah is required.
Silly that they had to get rid of the sd slot and removable battery...sorry Samsung you are not getting my business
Ok people no SD card slot and no removable battery does not mean the end of the world. Apple has done it since the beginning and their customers dont complain. The android os was built in the first place to operate with out having to read an SD card every couple of minutes. The galaxy s6 has done quite well without either of these and in my opinion is the nicest looking phone on the market. As far as the glass goes, it is built the latest and strongest,might i add, gorilla 4 glass that is currently out at this time. You cant compare this device to the iPhone in any way because this is clearly in a class of its own. Wireless charging and a redesigned S-pen not to mention the crazy amount of RAM that is going to power it. I can say as a current NOTE 4 user i am extremely excited and pleased with what Samsung is and will be introducing.
Without the sd card and a weaker battery (non removable). They are using many of the same specs as the note 4.
If this is supposed to save Samsung phone division from going under, they are in trouble. Their marketing division should be fired. They missed the boat with this opportunity to capture the market back.
