    I also find the spying argument a but weak as the government already knows where you live, where you work, and who you call, so they are already "spying" on you in some way.
    Unless you have something to hide, I don't see why anyone has the need to be so protective of their pictures and music.
    These companies are held under strict laws, and I doubt they would risk doing so and putting their reputation and company in danger.
    I would learn to trust that these companies will not mess with your stuff, because they would not risk doing so.

    What are you even talking about. Tell me on which planet will that happen? People still buy and carriers still sell basic flip phones for crying out loud. Get your head out of the techno morass that it's in and understand that people have different needs and there will always be someone willing to supply that need because they can make a buck out of it.

    The only thing I do not like about Motorola is the Camera. The shots from the Moto X, Droid, and Nexus have not been that Great in the past in my opinion.

    Yes -- in the past they have been bad. That is why Motorola stated they would up their game this year on the camera. We still have to wait and see but early reports show some promise.

    Cool if correct, but usually the tray is wider/thicker if also fitting the sd slot. Looks like no room for both.
    If not side by side, it could be stacked.

    Ahh... Yes you are correct, thanks
    I still got that wrong. That lesser one is the Moto X Play of course with the 5.5" and bigger battery, as opposed to the Moto X Style, ideally in Pure edition form.
    So much to keep up with on Android.

    I'm not big on either of those features, but I won't buy the Note 5 because of Samsung. I got used to my S6, then turned on my Nexus 5 and was amazed at how much snappier the Nexus 5 is on stock Android. Maybe I'll go with the OnePlus 2 next. I wanted to look forward to the Note 5, but I'm sticking with Nexus (or Nexus adjacent) phones.

    The One Plus 2 was not as good as I thought it was gonna be. These are the things that surprised me
    - Takes 3 hours to fully charge
    - No NFC
    - No MicroSD Card

    The screen is 1080p, not 1440. No TouchWiz either so I'd think the new moto x would be similar to the note 4 in terms of battery life.
    TouchWiz on my Note 4 has virtually no impact to battery life and no better or worse than Nova. The biggest weight for drain is the display and a 5.7" 1440p LCD will be particularly so. If IPS, not as bad but if TFT it would be more of an issue.

    We shall see, but sticking to the 2.5 hour screen on delta with the Note 4. Same power consumption chipset, LCD and 220 mah smaller battery.

    No NFC is really the only one that bugs me. I haven't had a phone with a microSD card slot since my Galaxy S3, and I don't miss it. I like the Note 4, but TouchWiz kills any chances I had of getting a Note 5.

    You could always switch to a 3rd party Launcher... It's better than Touchwiz... And even so the debloated Touchwiz is better than the previous ones imo

    No Note 5 if No removable battery.

    Wouldn't they just introduce a Note-5 Active or Note-5-All-Day SKU with removable battery, even if their flag-ship doesn't have it?

    "Will you buy the Note 5 if it doesn't have a SD card and/or removable battery?"

    No. Considering that the Note 4 is still an excellent phone that will likely see a price drop makes it even more unnecessary to buy the Apple Galaxy Note 5.

    I tried that, but I wasn't seeing the same results. Plus, I'm sure the wait for Android M will be an eternity with Samsung's phones.

    Well updates depend on when the carriers release them, not Samsung

    Buzz is gaining for the Moto X Pure/Style. Pricing apparently is 16gb = $400, 32GB = $450 and 64GB = $500 (seems $550 fits the memory increase, so maybe the media got this wrong).

    I can see the 64GB version at that price selling big time. Camera is getting good feedback so far (unlike previous Moto's). If Motorola can leverage Lenovo for marketing efforts, they could feed off the positive buzz until release. That and the iPhone 6 Plus refresh are going to probably take a significant bite out of Samsung. Lack of sd slot will make it even worse.

    Catch of course is battery life. Not sold on a 3000 mah battery pushing a 5.7" 1440p LCD. Need to see reviews and hope somehow Motorola were able to source a more power efficient LCD. Not likely, but a remote chance.

    Consolation regardless is a still kick a$$ Note 4

    I just purchased a Note 4 last week even with the notation that the note 5 was a round the corner. I previously has a s6 and returned it for this and some other reasons. The Removable battery, eh not a huge deal. SD card was my issue. I am a power user for sure. I use my phone for work ( IT Admin ) and personal ( movies games music and even remote desktop connection ) I need all the storage I could get ! 32 gigs + 128 micro SD = Perfect! I even have a dongle to connect a regular flash drive on my car keys.. I am quite please with my purchase and despite the updates in hardware and software tweaks in the new touch wiz will make me want to sacrifice my freedom of removable storage at the moment.

    Perhaps the key question is will you buy it if you have the Note 4. Doesn't look like much of an upgrade to me at all. I say No.
