    This is acceptable. Not like a $6 replacement battery off of eBay, but not back-breakingly expensive either.

    Next question, do older Notes have a tendency to drop in price from the release of a new Note?

    The cost of a Note 5 is going to set me back around $385 ($299 + tax at the full $700-ish price). If the Note 4 drops in price by $100, then it'll be a tough choice between that and the Note 5.
    Most likely Note 4 prices will drop. I couldn't tell you how much though.
    I am looking to sell my S6 on eBay for the Note 5 since I will have to pay to upgrade

    Agreed - $30 really isn't that bad.

    If the new S6 Edge plus comes with 4 gb memory as well I may consider that instead of the note 5

    I love my Note 4 and the only reason I can see, for me at least, is something new and different and it is that gorgeous curved screen. I would have gotten the S6 edge instead of note 4 but wanted a bigger screen.

    If I upgrade my note 4 to the note 5 or S6 edge plus, I can sell my note 4 to you ☺ serious. Great condition. Only 3.5 months old

    Note 4 is (was?) a buck on contract already.

    The pop out slot is way oversized for a nano-sim. Any chance that it is 2-in-1 a nano sim and microsd slot?

    Note 5 looks sooo pretty Just like s6 but with edge on the back I like it a lot

    I want this phone but have two concerns: if the phone is gonna be all glass, it needs to be in a case and with a case it's even wider. I have small hands so I haven't gotten a Note phone yet 'cos I'm worried it's too big for me Note 4 I could manage somehow 'cos it doesn't need a case but Note 5...

    And the price: if the Note 5 doesn't have a microSD slot, it's gonna be priced the same way as S6 and S6 edge...way too expensive

    Samsung Gods, please make it possible for me to get a Note 5 Otherwise I'm gonna get Note 4 which is not bad either (and cheaper!)

    Not sure what the thrill is for 4GB ram since Android treats ram like one giant stack register for quick app memory recall. You will end up with about the same free storage, unless the total apps on your device is less than what can almost filled up.

    Seems a Note 4 with sd slot and battery options is a better deal and save over $100 even after buying a 128gb card. The Note 4 user has 32GB more storage to boot. The more Samsung tries to act like Apple, the bigger Apple gets.

    Agreed. They should have left the IR blaster and SD card in the device. Non removable battery is okay especially if it is a $30 swap at an authorized place. And they do need some more camera tricks as the new Moto X Style is now just as good as the Note 4.

    Speaking of this leak, anybody else notice two things?

    1. These leaked photos and other recent ones look exactly like the phone renders for the new case at Amazon that has also been linked as recent Note 5 info. The Amazon case renders show a pinned slot on bottom AND side by the power button.

    2. All the recent photo leaks appear to not show the power button side surface to the point of hiding it on purpose. We have so far seen the power button side with the image darkened out, with a case covering it, or a hand blocking full view.

    Big stretch, but what IF Samsung knows the sd slot is a big issue and the leaks are all part of a reveal later? Very doubtful, but seems uncanny how that particular area of the phone is the only area not fully visible in any photo.

    I still am a firm believer that the photos in this "leak" are a dummy unit from that particular case make, just a gut feeling, truly believe that the other device we saw a picture of (gold with the white case on it) is most likely legit

    Still, the only surface area not visible in any photo image (except the render) is the area next to the power button. The render's nomenclature appears the same as the photos.

    The 3,000 mah seems an issue for a sealed design with a 5.7" 1440p LCD. They pack a 3630 mah battery in the new smaller display model with 1080p. That makes zero sense. The OEs seems to never really get it all together. The Note 4, IMO is the closest thing to getting it all correct, but it too should have had a bigger battery- in spite of the more power efficient display. LCD is more of a power hog, yet Moto is putting a smaller battery than even the Note 4 has.

    This is the Sim Card on the S6. About the same size!

    I am hoping that they go this route with the MicroSD card on the GNote5, since they have not really shown us the sides other then the Volume and power buttons.

    At this point it is clear the direction that Samsung is going with the design of the Note 5, very much akin to the GS6. Just based on that I can pretty much guarantee there will NOT be a SD slot on the device.

    Pretty much
    No one should be surprised or upset if it doesn't have an SD card slot imo
