Not being able to replace the batter is annoying enough, but why did they remove the MicroSD card slot???? Trying too hard to be iPhone. IR was a nice feature while it lasted. Guess I have to go back to buying a universal remote.
I had the Note 2 and I loved it. Wanted to upgrade to the Note 4 but when I could it was no longer available at the price I was willing to pay. Sprint offered me the Note 5 and I know everyone doesn't get the deal I have but sprint is virtually paying me to use it. Though it's essentially a free phone it's the best phone I ever had. I know I'm biased but if someone gave me an iphone I'd sell it as fast as I could. The size , clarity, battery life, and camera of the Note 5 stands head and shoulders above any phone out there.
As a longtime user of Note2, I thought finally it was time for me to get rid of Samsung product line over smartphones - tired of it and dont wanto deal with it anymore. Surprisingly odd enough, however, one time passing by its display counter and immediately I was completely got caught up by its slick design and impressive performance from this Note5 in shiny gold champan with duo sim cards. Indeed it could be accused of copied version of Iphone in terms of internal storage and non-removable battery but overall its feel of quality and functions stand out differently to its predecessors and iphones ios system.
Believe it or not, this model could take weeks to arrive at the local store when place the order, still a big hit in the marketplace!
More slick sensative light-weight design, stable fast access to memory storage, energy saving efficiency in high resolution screen and battery usage, enhanced camera features plus S pen with more powerful capabilites - capturing more pictures in a roll under a click. The chipset CPU may not be the fastest system at least 4GB RAM loaded can help apps and multi tasking run in smooth like breeze. Even though severe competition in the industry, Samsung throw some extra for a dual USB 32GB removable external drive (direct plug into your phone) and one more year extension from the original warranty.
Conclusion: abit more pricy for its bundle with this flagship as always but worthy of experiencing the quality of top notch gadget in elegant and comfort design and functions.
Whether it fits your preference or worty of upgrade, try it out and you will know much better yourself.
Best choice is Note 3 but if u easily afford maximum price then you purchase note 5................
no infra red too bad. That is very important feature that Samsung has. Now its gone too..
savethegalaxy, 24 Sep 2015I was soooo disappointed to find all the new Samsung phones don't have a card slot or a remove... morewith no expandable card slot im going away from samsung and getting the sony z5 expandable upto 128 gb with card slot :)
Guys please help me. Which is better or more? Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or Note 5? In your opinion? I am planning to buy a smartphone. Please guys. Thanks.
I was soooo disappointed to find all the new Samsung phones don't have a card slot or a removeable battery. I love the design of the S6 edge plus, but without these 2 very important features, I will not be upgrading my SUPERIOR NOTE 4! Instead, I bought a new battery and gold battery cover to compliment the note 4. What happens when the battery gives up on the new S and Galaxy range? Should we throw our expensive phones in the bin? 64gb max internal storage on the latest phones?? I'm using 120gb card in note 4 with 32gb of internal! Please Samsung, we all want progress, but not at the expense of loosing features that are all too important. HTC tried dumping the card slot and non removeable battery. They learned from that. Suppose I will wait to see what the competition responds with over the next 6 months. LG ? HTC ? Sony?
Point 1. Useless
Point 2. iphone is better than Samsung
Point 3. Sony camera only is best .
I'm using samsung since 2005 and I had every note series, but now with this sh*t which Samsung gave this time, I'm gonna upgrade to Iphone 6s plus this time...
no card slot, no infra red, battery unremovable 300mah, resolution of screen is less than note edge, chipset exynos but note edge is qualcomm which is more better in media,...
so, i think its lower than the previous edition of edge and i think the sales of note 5 will go down
