This is easily one of Samsung's least impressive efforts (aside from temperamental batteries, that is...). No SSD card- a big thing for me. Mine (Taiwan Mobile) came preloaded with Microsoft Office Mobile, the Largest Ever Memory and CPU-Cycle Hog in the known Universe. Not sure if this a Samsung deal or a Taiwan Mobile deal. Also it has so many parallel-apps; Samsung-This, Samsung-That, all inferior to the original Google versions. Unless you scrap them, you need to cope not only with Android calling the Mothership ten times a minute but also with the Samsung apps calling the Samsungship. Atrocious. Last but not least: the receive sensitivity of the phone is abominable. Often time I lose signal while my pal next to me (HTC, Sony, Huawei) still has perfect signal. The fact that the local "flagship" store seems to only employ game-obsessed and client-hating Neanderthals doesn't help either. All in all a 3 out 10

Most people who complain or speak ill of it clearly don't have the phone and totally cant afford it. My 5 is the winter edition from korea the 128gb.everything is superb plus with the zerolemon battery...they complain bcoz they only have xiaomi, asus, Lenovo or Huawei and maybe iPhone only. That's is why... Samsung note series are top of the line smartphones... Respect!
I love love love this phone. Camera is AMAZING! Good battery life. I literally dropped the phone in a lake and then let it sit out for a week to dry and it power up and its like nothing happened! GREAT PHONE!!!

There is a some points which i observe in note 5 which is disappoint me.
1. No microSD card slot; no 128GB built-in memory option
2. The battery is not user-replaceable or Smaller battery
3. No IR port
4. No enhanced resistance to liquids or dust
5. No stereo speakers
6. The body of the smartphone is quite slippery without a case
7. Not available in key global markets (at least for the time being)
8. S Pen mechanism prone to damage
9. Heavy price or Expensive
10. Sluggish advancement in pioneering features like Multi Window
Very disappointed with Note 5. it took me 4-5 hours to charge my phone and the phone get warm easily. Lucky i have sold it off

Some people are saying that note 5 has screen issue gaming issue etc etc....
I think they all get clone note 5.
I'm using note 5 from 7 months no major issue at all.
No screen problem.
No theme store acces problem.
No front camera issue.
No lagging at all.
No marshmallow upgrade problem because I'm already using 6.0.1 version..no signal issue at all.
Battery is not excellent but more than average means good.
Please Don't misguide the people.
AnonD-575308, 08 Sep 2016Anyone is using JIO sim in Note 5. Does it show volte function No Volte or Jio sim support..i know disappoonting but m sure some experts can help on this...
My touch got malfunction and display had lines just after 1 month of purchase, without any damage. Samsung refused to cover under warranty. Guys don't wast your money for this cheap quality device.
Why cant I access the theme store? When i click theme in settings, no response at all.
Advise to all: Don't upgrade to Marshmallow 6.0.1. Otherwise you'll get very week signal received.
guys as i have some videos of gaming performance of note but youtubers said that it lags playing games which make me sad plz guys tell me how is ur experience playing games on it does it lag playing asphalt 8 and other heavy games???
