What to expect?

What will this help for the Note 5? I hate these upgrades to a new operating system, have had some bad luck on phones when they upgrade. Just leave the phones alone I say when it's working good which mine is don't screw with it. Marshmallow sounds like a wimp system anyways LOL why not Tequila

Galaxy Note 5???

I have the note 5 and I love it! However last night I realized that I cannot be on a phone call and use the internet at the same time, even while being connected to wifi. Does anyone else have this problem or know a way to fix it.

The Note 5 Samsung Made some big MISTAKE'S

I have been very Impressed with Samsung's Galaxy and Note Phones. I currently have a Galaxy S5 and I Love it. The design and display, **REMOVABLE BATTERY** I always have a spare charged and ready to pop in whin the juice runs low. Plus I added the wireless charging back. **SDcard Slot** And water resistance are the key features I wanted in the phone. I was an Android fan from Day one. When I purchased the Original Motorola Droid in 09. I was always a Moto Fan and never purchased any other brand. I had the Razer s, Droid Razer Maxx, Razer Max HD and I was looking forward to the Droid Tubo. But Moto also made a big mistake. They omitted the SDCard. I love to have my entire Music collection on my Phone 330 albums all in high quality 320khzs. ...

Will never buy Note 5 (or Galaxy S6) lineup w/o removable battery & SdCard slot

I need extended batteries and I need the ability to replace batteries once they have gone down the 30% a year they die through normal use. I don't want to have to ship my phone off or pay special technician money to replace a battery that is a standard stock battery. I also don't like the design of the phone where you cannot change the back cover to extend it so that you can put in a larger battery. It may look cool but for this user this is a huge flaw. I will wait for a phone , and there is already a different one out by a different company has everything except for that AMOLED display and it's a little slower. However, it's also much much cheaper AND has an SDcard slot which is the other thing I desperately want in these phones as SDcard ...

Similar results with AT&T

I found when I first got the phone for AT&T volume seemed like you a bit low, but seemed to have improved, don't know why? Battery which I expected to be bad, was better then I thought. First real hard use that I was not home was today, started out at around 7:30am to take my daughter back to her University in Philadelphia gave me pretty good battery life, downloaded like 6 updates, some mild web surfing, and logged onto the irc for about 5 or 6 hours (Andchat) and at around now (8:30pm) I have 35% left on the battery. I did bring a One Plus Power Bank with me, which I didn't use. Bloatware from AT&T seemed excessive like with VZW and was able to remove a few, and was able to disable all of their carrier apps.

I don't remember what ...

Start?

Don't see anything about when this program starts but I tried to enroll in it today from my iPhone and no matter which carrier I chose or which phone I chose it gave me "this device is not available right now. Select a different device or check back later"

A Step Backwards IMHO

Having actually handled a Samsung S6 Edge( ) for a while, I can say it is a step backwards in many ways compared to the previous models.

The only appealing feature is the screen; which is BEAUTIFUL. But the lack of a microSD Card Slot and non-removable battery killed it for me.

And I think there is an error with this write-up. When you wrote "Oddly, the phones come in only 32GB and 64GB versions; there will be more 128GB version for the U.S."

I think you meant that there will be NO 128GB version for the U.S., which is very stupid considering the lack of microSD card support.

Personally I like it...

waay better than the other notes. I didnt even really like samsung before the S6 but it feels great in your hand, like an actual flagship phone instead of a creaky plastic back ZTE, ala every other samsung. And I used to care about a removable battery and micro-SD until I really thought about it.
The memory in the S6 is Blazing fast, in fact it smashes almost every phone out there. However, the S6 would be considerably slower if it had an external memory card, just by querying the slot in normal operation, and how often do I Really physically remove the card?
If the phone wouldnt power on or got dropped in water is about it. Do I really need 32 gigs of bullshit on my phone? Or do you really need your titanium backup file from 6 phones ...

Won't be buying

Since Samsung has decided to become an Apple clone, I won't be buying the Note 5 or S6. They used to distinguish themselves from Apple by having removable batteries and SD card storage. Not anymore. I'd still buy their other phones that have these features, but not their flagship phones anymore. If I wanted an Apple clone, I'd go buy an Apple phone.

Samsung runs out of idea.

Zpike, you're right, and I agree. Maybe it is time to try Apple next coming phones.
I won't go for Windows Phones or Ubuntu. They are not much aps available.

Losing the appeal

I love Samsung, but I am very disappointed by the current design. One of the most attractive features of the phone to me was adding storage as I see fit as well as battery removal. The main reason, among quite a few others that I moved away from ios, was because of this. I understand Samsungs desire to be fluid and sleek, but I as a consumer desire more. Form and Function.

These are very nice indeed, but...

Are they really worth paying twice as much for compared to say the new Moto X or OnePlus 2 which cost about $400 cheaper?

With the other manufacturers upping their game on their devices it's becoming harder and harder to justify this sort of pricing.

Samsung really dropped the ball.

Besides the quad HD screen, I really don't see any reason to upgrade from my Note 3, especially considering I would actually have to give up features to do so. I'm not impressed. Samsung really doesn't understand their customers. The Quad HD screen of the Note 4 wasn't enough to attract away Apple's customers when it included a removable battery and memory card slot. Why should they think a model whose only selling point is a quad HD screen and no expandable storage or removable battery will do anything but drive away existing customers? I was really hoping my next device could be a Note 5, but it looks like I will be looking elsewhere. Maybe it's time to try something entirely different like Windows Phone or Ubuntu.
