    A NOTE TO SAMSUNG.


    Your recent launch of your two new phones,The Note 5 and the S6 Edge Plus did not give you the edge over Apple here are the reasons why.,
    -no Micro Sd slot
    -no external battery
    Now I can live with these two choices as I realize that internal memory is much faster than external memory and the non-removable battery is not a big deal.
    But,you did not stop there instead you decided that your going to push the S6 Edge Plus as your main flagship phone in two memory sizes 32/64gb and in the color black and make the Note 5 available in Black only and one size 32gb here in Canada. Last but not least some carriers did not received any phones at all and where in the dark as to when and If they would receive stock of the Note 5 in the 64gb size
    I have always been under the impression that as a consumer that pays for the product I get a choice in this matter. Samsung does NOT decide what I want.

    In the end have comes out on top as “THE PLUS WINNER”
    They deliver across the world to multiple countries along with different models of phones in various memory sizes and colors on their launches.
    In closing I have purchased the S2/3/4 and the Note 3 and 4 and was planning on buying the Note 5(64GB)

    Until you can deliver phones in Canada like Apple does I will take my money elsewhere.

    This is “THE NEW NOW.”

    Yours truly.,

    Despite the lack of features you've stated. Doesn't mean that Apple is automatically better.

    Still no AMOLED, no 2K, no Pen, no customisable software, no Ultra Power saving etc... Better screen to body ratio on Sammys.

    There's loads of things why I chosr a Sammy over iPhone.

    Same horrible experience as stated in a thread I created. Rogers stores who actually had extra stock above the reserved devices were not allowed to be sold unless you upgraded you plan. I'm an iPhone user wanting to try out the note but unable to get one in my hands.

    You guys are hilarious. The Note 5 is the best phone I have ever owned. Do you really think your opinion matters to anyone? Listen up to all the people that actually BOUGHT the new phones and they love them. Please go buy an IPHONE or some other phone and leave here. If you don't own a Note 5, you are still calling the world flat.
    The OP is talking about the lack of choices for the Note 5 in Canada he is not talking about iPhone.

    I am in the same boat and feel his frustration. I was going to upgrade to this phone but no 64 available anywhere. Not going to settle for a 32 even if it is the best Android out there currently.

    Those things are all subjective.

    They also don't make Samsung better.

    You do realize that iPhones don't have removable batteries and no microSD card slots, right?

    OP makes it seem that the Note is inferior to the iPhone without the expandable storage and removable battery

    iPhone is a mass produced low end and low quality device with more color options because it's sprayed on instead of using quality materials and finish. Furthermore, it doesn't have SAMOLED, no 14nm SoC and ~40% slower performance, 1GB DRAM instead of 4GB, made from mass produced bendable aluminum instead of aircraft grade, no precision pen, no fast charging, no fast wireless charging, no multiwindow support, no background multitasking beyond 3 minutes, a lesser camera, etc. Feel free to buy an iPhone to free up a spot in line for others that are still waiting.

    I always switch from the iPhone to Samsung and back and forth. I think Sammy might be keeping me this time unless the new iPhone blows me away when it's released.

    The iPhone 6 plus is much more buggy and laggy than the note 5

    You can always buy the note 5 unlocked that's what I did got the gold platinum 32gb 739.00 USD because the carriers here only had black or white.

    Most Apple users consider the device secondary to the ecosystem & iTunes and are not going to bail from that for a device (especially with a significant refresh coming). Apple wins that battle even if just making a device "good enough".

    Samsung is now trying to lure Apple users with the Note 5 and Edge with a new add/gimmick campaign, but the only way that will work is the Apple users also get to keep all their apps, media and continue to use iTunes. Samsung is burning too much effort to a lost cause and will lose far more of their current base then they will ever gain from Apple.

    I seriously doubt Samsung is trying to lure happy Apple customers to their devices, that would be a waste of time and money.

    I do believe they're trying to lure customers who want a change from the Apple sameness and burnout, as well as fellow android competitors. And why wouldn't they?

    Samsung is investing money in a Note test drive for Apple users. I did not specify what they might be expecting. They are luring though, but doubt many fish are hungry for anything but apples and fresh ones are on the way.

    Hence moving up their initial release date. Look I didn't say it would be a successful move, only time will tell. But it's a risk they need to take at this point. Simply bowing to Apple isn't a good look either.

    Actually they are. They are giving a free Note 5 to Apple users to use for 30 days. The demand has been so high, they ran out of devices the first day and are looking into getting more to reserve for this.

    Samsung is out doing Apple across the world, everywhere but the US.

    Which will end for most with:

    1. Where's iTunes??
    2. Drag and drop- directories?? (too "technical")
    3. I do not get to keep my apps??
    4. What about the apps I was using??
    5. Hey, how to I get my Apple purchased media to work??
    6. WHERE THE HECK IS MY ITUUUUUNNES?!

    Not seeing what Samsung is trying here and seems the focus again should be keeping their current install base and not trying to lure fish that will not bite long enough to keep. Maybe they are using this as marketing research and there is a preformed questionnaire when Apple users returns them.... That WOULD make sense.

    Samsung's progression to becoming "Sample" will be complete!

    Samsung will abandon Android for their awful in-house OS and create sTunes. Wait, too close for litigation perhaps, so they might call it "Stunes".

    Limited choice is still better than no choice at all. You have the ability to choose between the Note and the Edge plus. In Europe we have the completely pointless Edge or old models. I like many I know are waiting to see what comes from LG and if the G4 Pro does show its face this year. If so, bye bye Samsmug.

    They are only selling 32gb Note 5's in many world regions, including the wealthy Middle East, where they price the similar capacity S6E+ at Dh 3099, higher than the Note 32gb @ Dh2799.

    This article appeared as an advert on Gumtree, our version of Swappa:
    http://www.emirates247.com/business/...08-19-1.600705


    They either have technical / supply difficulties with the 64gb Note 5, they want everyone to see the S6E+ as their ultimate phone, or both.

    Limiting a high percentage of early purchasers to 32gb AND no sd slot is saying we want your money but WE decide what you need.

    Though I didn't use half my Note 3 storage at the time, I think 32gb today is too little on a very expensive flagship, especially when you look at available space.

    Especially since "32" is really about 22gb for the user. Lollipop needs about 1GB free to update apps and function cleanly.
