Ugh....

No removable battery or SD card SUCKS. If they seal the battery on the Note 5, I'm ditching Samsung and going back to an iPhone. The removable battery and memory cards were what made them appeal to many people and was one reason I put up with Touch wiz for so long. Take away these and I might as well get an iPhone or a stock Android phone. At least Apple has it together software and design wise.
Yep...JK Shin wasn't listening to us and Samsung don't care.....BIG mistake. That would have been a "homerun" with micro SD card and removable battery. I can deal with the battery BUT no SD card....yuuuck!!!
I feel the exact same way. I am a fan of the note series and if they do the same to that line then I will probably switch back to apple myself. I can deal with the battery but the sd card is a deal breaker for me.I know they are making bigger storage ...

I do have a great reason for the removable battery. My S5 will randomly lock up when receiving a call. It won't stop ringing until I take the battery out. I have had this same problem on 2 different phones. The only keys it will recognize are the keys...

C'mon Sammy! Revised model?

No micro SD card is an absolute deal breaker. A move like this most definitely pushes me away. Hopefully, a revised model is in the works.

I don't keep any sensitive/personal data/media on my internal storage. All pictures, videos, and documents are kept externally. If I were to ever damage my device to the point of needing a replacement, it's a must that I'm able to pull the micro Sd card. It just gives me piece of mind.

I don't really mind a sealed battery. If it's as good as the cells Samsung normally chooses, I can live with it. The Note 4 has great battery life, so I imagine that the S6/Note 5 will be no different considering how power efficient the Exynos 7420 chipset is at 14nm architecture.

I've been using a Galaxy Note 3 si...

Unbelievable how Samsung blew it....Agree with your points...WE have Samsung because of the fact it has those capabilities...micro SD card, removable battery etc

Is anyone surprised they're back to copying the iPhone?

I guess it's a an improvement, but this phone looks like a mishmash of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 4, which I guess is better than the turd-ugly Galaxy S3, S4, and especially the insanely ugly S5. But yeesh- Samsung just can't seem to find an industrial designer to, you know, figure out something more original for the speaker grille, frame, or edges?

Too bad that TouchWiz is still a thing.

Only one flaw

The only flaw that I see is the petruding camera lens on back, why would Samsung not make this flush with the back of the phone, looks so old school..
This is becoming standard. The HTC One M9 and even the iPhone 6 have protruding camera lenses, too. Physics dictate how small the optics can be in a camera and still have it be any good.

Nice!

Wow, the Samsung design absolutely crushes the iPhone in the side by side photos. Way to go Sammy!
