    What I've read is that it has the same design as the Galaxy 6 (solid glass back) so no replaceable battery - but they have wireless charging (that's their excuse anyway)...

    FOLKS (I'm talking to you Microsoft and Samsung) it is NOT always right to copy Apple!

    No it isn't. I always buy an extra charger and battery, that way I have a fully charged battery to insert should I forget to charge the one in the phone. This is what kept me away from the iPhone. If Samsung is going the same way as Apple I might as well go for an iPhone the next time. Are you reading this in Seoul?

    I'm currently wearing a T-shirt that I had printed many years ago with the slogan:

    "Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups"

    On the brightside, I'm not itching to upgrade my Note 4 any time soon, and from what I've seen of the Note 5 (even ignoring the lack of SD and swappable battery), I don't see any new feature calling my name. I could see continuing to use my Note 4 for years honestly. I can't think of anything more I'd like it to do.

    If I go with the Note, I might just get a Note 4 when the 5 is released. I like its features a lot more than what I have seen of the 5. My carrier will probably have a great deal on the 4 when the 5 comes out.

    I may go with the Lumia now, I really do not want to be locked down to 32gb of space. My 16gb iPhone 5 is a giant pain in the ass for me right now having to constantly delete photos or apps (I have a lot of audio books for commutes).

    If the Lumia has a way to play/run android apps like many tech websites have stated, this will be my go to later this year.

    I'm still on the fence. I do like my Lumina 928. It's built like a tank. IMO, it's built far better than my wife's IPhone or my kid's S4's.
