    What are you crossing your fingers for? It's going to be more or less the s6 with a stylus lol. Ha

    Will the removable battery and no micro sd card kill it for you? It will for me. Guess we will find out a month from now..
    It would definitely kill it for me.

    Expandable storage is completely unnecessary for my use with all of the cloud options available.

    As for sealed battery, no big deal there either. Yes, switching out is nice but I also have enough mobile power options that removable batteries are not a requirement.

    The note will be my first and last Samsung of that's the case. I'll end up checking out the Nexus line of phones. Why would I want to deal with touchwiz if we lose the 2 things that made it worth dealing with.

    I hope not!
    At least for the SD card and the back, if they use the fragile slippery glass on this big phone...

    But they will and most people will love it. I just want removable battery because I keep my phones for 2-3 years and I would like to change the battery when it doesn't hold a charge anymore like I did with my current phone (Note 2). SD slot I can care less about. I don't use that much memory.

    To answer this thread's question. No will not upgrade. Call me old fashioned but I still like having the SD card and the removable battery.

    It will kill it for me. I plan to keep my phone for awhile and batteries for me after a year does not hold a good charge. It's great to be able to replace the battery after a year or so. Also in my job that I work over 10 hours a day I can replace my battery quick. For the SD card I'm not too worried about that.

    It might be a tough call for me. In all truthfulness, the last time I had to replace a battery was in my razr (flip phone). In the 5 other phones I've owned since, I've not once had to replace my battery. Then again, phone replacements probably came before the batteries needed to be replaced. As for the SD issue, that too may or may not bother me. However, I would still wish to have both options!

    My N4 is still "new" in my eyes so I don't even think I'll even consider upgrading to the N5 unless it's like screaming improvements. I mean REALLY screaming improvements! Not likely!

    The Note 4 is new to me also, there is no weaknesses in this phone that I can find except the learning curve but that's just me getting familiar. This is my first Samsung Note phone.

    I absolutely love the Note series, so I am scared to switch to a totally different phone and/or platform altogether, so let's hope the Note 5 will have the replaceable battery option. I just hate being tethered to recharge my battery.

    If that happens, I will use the Note 4 till it dies, and then by another Note 4. If I can't find one, then I will look at the Nexus line( Must be nice to be first in line when there are OS updates).

    I have had the Note 2,3,4 and would not be happy if Samsung doesn't put a removable battery and a S.D. card slot on the Note 5. At this point i am 50-50 on if i up grade or not. The Note 5 has other good things like a 64 Bit processor that would make it handle the ram more efficient.

    Really love my Note 4 and like having the MicroSD and replaceable battery. For those of us who root and tweak the piece of mind of being able to do full nandroid backups to MicroSD and restore from that is great. I also will occasionally carry a spare battery for swapping out. Most days I never need to replace my battery but sometimes I'll have a heavy use day and it's nice to be able to swap out to a 100% battery without being tied to a charger of any style or bulking up the phone with external battery pack/cases.

    It's definitely a deal breaker for me, but I can't think of any phone I would want I've been using Samsung since the beginning of the S series. Never wanted a Note until I saw the Note 4 and it's awesome. I carry spare batteries because of my heavy phone use, and use a 128gb sd. Which by the way has about 40gb of available space. If no sd or removeable battery I'm definitely not interested in the 5 no matter how bad I may want something new.

    Since getting the SGN.IV and really liking it (as in not going to get rid of it and definitely no regrets with it), will have to see how goes it when the SGN.V does makes its debut.

    The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is new to me and I have no ifs/ands/or buts about buying it and, NO, I'm not experiencing nor have I experienced any catastrophic glitches as some may have. In fact I'm very satisfied and happy with it. But in regards to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 5, well, will see when it's available. That's all.

    Same here, waiting for the official Note 5 specs and design, for the time being the G4 and Note Edge are great phones thanks to their screens and SD card, the Edge is sexier but older, the G4 is lighter and newer but it has touchscreen problem. Both have actually a poor custom roms count and are overpriced but by the time the Note 5 is unveiled everything should change.
    If the Note 5 doesn't have an SD card it's a total no go, same if it's oversized as some said and too heavy (above 175grm)

    It does not. But it has things the Note 5 will not, like fast OS updates.

    The Note 4 currently has three things going for it that makes it relatively unique and desirable in the phablet market:
    1. Swappable battery
    2. Storage expansion (SD card slot)
    3. S-Pen

    The cost of having one is that you have to have TouchWiz, and that means Android OS upgrades take months. Nexus devices get OS upgrades fast, but they have none of the three above.

    So, if Sammy decides to turn the Note 5 into a device that removes two of the three major differentiators, the formula that made me choose the Note 4 changes a lot.

    If the Note 5 has a swappable battery and SD card slot, and S-Pen, then there are three major design considerations that make it the most desirable phone on the market (at least for me personally, obviously we all have different priorities in a phone or there wouldn't be a market of varied phones). I'm willing to put up, reluctantly, with OS updates to get all three features.

    Take two of them away, and I may still get a Note 5 - S-Pen is pretty awesome - but I'll look at other phablets a lot more seriously.

    Your carrier still has your contact information, phone numbers, and texts messages whether you save them on the cloud or not, so I think the privacy argument is weak for cloud services
    Didn't say I had a privacy issue. I just don't personally load anything into the cloud.
