    I am not a fan on how they made the battery smaller and non-removable. And no 128gb, really Samsung? I wouldn't have gotten it anyways(don't have the cash to spend on that model), but it was nice to know it was there, specially since with a microsd card one could easily have 256gb in their pocket. Also, tlets not foreget the Note 4 had an improved cpu over the S5. This year it's the same, minus the 1gb of extra ram on N5.

    As an early Note devotee, I absolutely agree that the Note 5 is a step back. Samsung, don't 'fix' what is not broken.

    The battery is somewhat smaller but the cpu is more efficient do it should remain the same.

    I understand, but what is real world like? Like what is to be expected of screen on time in real world usage?

    The Note 5 must not be selling well. Verizon charges $299 for the Note 4 on a 2 year contract upgrade but $249 for the Note 5. Plus, BestBuy just added a $100 gift card to sweeten the deal.

    And on top of that not releasing it in Europe or Japan has me questioning the geniuses working at Samsung marketing.

    I hope that's true and they take it as a hint to bring back the swappable battery and mSD card for the Note 6.
