    Battery specs keep switching from 3000mah to 4100mah
    Processor keeps switching from Exynos 7400 to Exynos 7420

    ...gotta hand it to Samsung for causing so much conflicting information with the specs
    Samsung has not released any specs. It is the rumor mill that creates the conflicting specs as it generates clicks.

    Well, when I view the settings of each device, it says 3000mAh. And no I cannot share any images. But you don't have to believe me. Thursday everyone will see.

    Sad, my Note 3 has a 3200, and the ability to swap it out with a spare in under a minute. Change we can believe in. I was looking forward to upgrading to the Note 5 this year, but with the loss of the removable battery and micro SD card, I purchased a new $10 battery for my Note 3 and a replacement charge port for $6 in case it gets a little worn in the future. I will stay with what I have, I still love this phone. I also use my IR blaster regularly. The YMCA had "the view" on the TV that was in front of me while working out, somehow the channel got changed to something I preferred.

    I am with you Jim2112. The IR blaster is awesome for that very purpose!

    I know the improved processor and other things will "lighten" the load on the battery but why go from 3220 mah to 3000? Especially on the Galaxy Note, you increase the screen resolution, camera megspixels, RAM, processor speed, internal memory and you decrease the capacity of the battery????? Meanwhile eliminating a key feature of said battery? Crazy...to say the least, I guess I'll just wait till the official announcement tomorrow, but either way I'm STILL getting this phone!

    About a third of the total weight of battery consumption is the chipset (more if heavier gaming) and the remaining majority is the display and data radios.

    The 7420 is near 20% more power efficient than the 805, but the GPU actually uses more power with heavy gaming (powerful gpu for phone). All things constant (yeah right) 33% times 20% would suggest about 7% more general battery life. The battery is 7% smaller, so should be about same as Note 4. If the display has been improved (already good), that would help even more and adds more weight to the improvement (display uses the most power on these devices).

    BTW, there is a diminished return curve as the nM size decreases in chip fabrication and is not proportional. So as example a 50% decrease in nM size does not mean 50% power efficiency.

    Added: I have also seen the 7420 is 10% better, but could be more GPU use in the tests?

    Bah! Current Note 4 users that switch will be the real sources for comparing

    We all thought GS6 would have better battery than GS5 due to "vast more efficient cpu and this and that", and it ends up not being the case.

    Most app don't hammer CPU, 100% more efficient cpu won't make significant impact on overall battery life.

    Yup, an increase in hardware efficiencies only go so far. What we really need, what we always need, is a bigger battery (at least until battery tech drastically improves, which seems years away)! Instead we get a thinner phone with a smaller battery and even sealed so you're stuck having to tether to some external charging source for more power! It's all the very definition of form over function! Ugh...

    It looks like a 3k Non-Removable battery.
