Hands On with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+
A Step Backwards IMHO
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...
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 ...

You do realize there is a difference between memory and storage rig...
Won't be buying
Samsung runs out of idea.
I won't go for Windows Phones or Ubuntu. They are not much aps available.
Losing the appeal
These are very nice indeed, but...
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.
