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.
I can say, it will be price way to much, for an all glass is a no extra features. Its a no no for me. I have a galaxy s4 and it is in great shape. I will keep it and maybe look at apple because Samsung is going to price them out of the market like they did when the S6 came out. I know its about the mighty dollar, but come on...price it where you can sell it, with lease features, and just because its all glass don't make it a better than apple phone. I hated apple but I guess I may be going that way. Thanks Samsung for pushing me that way, with price and glass, breakable phones.
I am so disappointed.
CAMERA: I was waiting for Note 5 eagerly in large part because of a promised 20MP camera. My trusty and impressive 13MP Note 3 was good but not quite good enough to replace a real mini-camera. Now I see Samsung could not pull it off and the upgrade is only to 16MP.
REMOVABLE BATTERY: This is an absolute deal breaker. So long Samsung! I'm sad we have to part ways.
This is an absolute necessity for me and a prime reason I went with Samsung to start with. I have 3 spares for my Note 3 because I use the phone on long trips away from an AC outlet or car charger. I have been SO pleased with the removable battery. I have boasted of it to phone admirers, shown off how I can switch out a battery in under 10 seconds and belittled the iPhone and competitors because of their lack of a removable battery.
Now I have to give up on Samsung. Dammit.
the glass aint breakable like you would get on an iphone, plus iphones are shit only reason people still buy them is because the are sheep and follow suit the only phones that come close to samsung is htc and both far exceed any thing the iphone can do so what if you can change the battery or add a sd card dont think samsung would worry about you few not buying one
