    The speaker on the note5 is pretty loud, having stereo speakers would probably increase size and cost.

    As far as the note4, my younger daughter still has mine i gave her last year, still a top phone for sure!! Arguably the best of the notes so far!

    Sent with my white Note5 with nonremovable back and no SDcard!

    Okay, I just thought of this, more Than 3 app shortcuts from the S-pen. In fact, let it be unlimited and customizable. I find when I'm multitasking, I'd rather have a shortcut app to take me straight to app drawer instead of hitting home button and then swiping to find my app.

    All I can say is my trusty Note 4 will be 2 years old this yea, but if they don't put the SD and the removable battery, I will stay with Note 4 or jump ship to another brand that has those features..

    I am a heavy user and always on the move, fast too. I carry 3 spare batteries, and I swap out batteries in the 10 to 15 second range. I have a 128 sd card, which is almost filled. Going to the 200gb sd, trying to wait for a 256.
    They are talking about a SD card. But they are making a huge battery. It will not be removable.
    Its suppose to be about to run a day and a half, if not longer.
    They will have to make the phone a little larger for this option.
    4K bendable screen. 21+ pixel camera
    16 core processor.
    Its gonna be one of the most advanced notes on the market.

    I'm been saving my money for a few months. Gonna save it a little longer too.
    Waiting on the next note 6 to be released.
    Heard its gonna rock.
    Hear the price will be around 1200.00

    Note 4 has a feature called "Side key panel" (see link below) that puts select functions along the side of the screen, one of which is the app drawer button. I believe they removed it though from the Note 5.

    But does this happen when in the Recent Tabs screen?

    I love my Note 5. It's rooted only to eliminate bloat, fix memory management and maximize battery life. And I love it this way.

    So, for a Note 6, my preference for improvements would be:

    - current footprint and design is GREAT (larger for more screen only)
    - 128G (available at launch)
    - less bloat
    - more Spen functionality
    - 4K not needed
    - IR blaster (not a deal breaker for me)

    I don't want an SD card slot or removable battery. There's no point. People want a premium phone and then when they make the s6 and note 5, everyone loses their minds. Just make the battery bigger.

    No that option is gone from the note 5 but there are quite a lot of 3rd party apps that can bring this feature back this is the best one I could find I always use its called Navigation bar it has alot of Customistion options from changing colour, size, Icon Colour, transparency I really sugest it it is probably better then the Note 4s Default one
    Hope I helped

    - 4k Screen
    - SD 820
    - removable Battery
    - SD Card Slot
    - 6 gb RAM to guarantee a smooth operation
    - S Pen with programmable buttons
    - make back and recent app button physical too
    - dedicated camera shot button

    ...and improve on that Smart Lock... glitchy (at least on the Note 4 it is glitchy)

    Just curious, why do some want a 4k screen? What benefit out weighs the hit to the battery?

    Also 6gigram? The issue isnt how much ram, 4 gig ram should be more than enough on the phone, its a management issue, not the size of the ram.

    Gimme a bigger battery and i will be happy, same size phone or possibly a bit bigger and at least a 3600mah battery like the s6active.

    To me how they measure the thickness of the phone is pointless anyway, if you have something like the camera sticking out, than THAT IS how thick the phone is! Fill in that gap w battery lol!

    Sdcard would be nice but not a must.

    Ive said it before, make the big edge phone the 4k entertainment whatever and keep the note line a work phone. Whats wrong w that?

    I think Smart Lock is a Google feature, but welcome any improvements now, or with whatever Android/TouchWiz version arrives with the Note 6.

    Agree. Battery capacity and life should not decrease in the Note 6.

    Think how long we will have to wait on the Note 6.
    And we know nothing about what we are gonna loose on it.
    In the past since everybody wanted the plastic back to be replaced and it to be metal sides.
    We have lost a lot of things in the Samsung Phones.
    I'm starting to get skeered at what next Samsung will take from us.
    And how much more they will charge for these phones.

    What would be nice is for the carriers is not to put so much BS software on the phone that we can't delete.
    We pay for the phone. Why should we have to have all their junk software that we don't want.
    These apps eats up your battery too.

    Same phone design. I honestly am in love with the design of the phone. That faux leather on the Note 4 made the phone seem like tier B compared to premium models of other companies. Keep the glass back, make the battery bigger so the power users can relax maybe 3200 or 3400mah. More S Pen functions, I fell in love with the S Pen especially that clicking sound. IF Samsung was able to get rid of that hideous bloatware that comes on the phones, that would be wonderful. I know we need a little bit but not enough to make the phone feel a little slow. I really don't like SD card slots so I hope Samsung does not revert back to the past. The fingerprint scanner does need some minor improvements but do not make it lightning fast as the iPhone where you can not even see the lock screen,

    I see a lot of posts say they don't like the "SD card slots".. All well and good, but the MAJORITY of Note users WANT, NEED, and LIKE sd card slots!!!! That's a fact! The sd slots is what made most of us Note users in the first place.

    I carry a ton of music, and video.. My DAP has 2 SD slots, with 128s in both, and that is almost filled up. My Note 4 has 6 gbs free on the 128 gb card..Looking to get the 200 gb or hopefully they come with the 256gb card.

    Just my 2 cents..

    Just want to make the note that when a posters states they don't like sd cards slots, it should be proceeded by "only speaking for myself, or a small minoirity"...

    Just because you would not use an SD card doesn't mean many others don't.

    I put alot of music on my phone as others have already mentioned. I am not going to keep my music in the cloud and stream it.

    I still have a Note 3 and still love it. I replaced the battery with a 6400 mah beast. It will last 2 full days with moderate use and no major game playing.

    No SD card is a no-no.

    That is not my issue the way you us the phone as I said. Only "I" prefer it. "I" is me in this case, not you or anyone else who "wants" or "likes" it.

    Because in a few years 4k will be the new standard which means TV, monitor, tablets will all have that resolution is it overkill on a tiny phone? Maybe but it's also nice to zoom into pics and see more details.

    As long as the battery is removable I don't care about the battery life.

    6 gig ram will guarantee smooth as butter dual window operation with a 4k screen. Keep in mind the screen has to push 1,5 times more pixel

    I don't understand all the usb C hype it's just a nice to have thing but I wouldn't lose sleep over it. I'm also not going to pin my hopes on Samsung thanks to last year, I have a lot of doubts but maybe they've learned their lesson.

    If not well the G5 also seems to be promising although I would miss the S Pen and Physical home button a lot

    I would want a 4K screen.
    I already hear on TV they have the 8K screens.
    It would probably be more efficient also.
    Have heard on the new note for this year. Its suppose to have a larger battery.
    Now with the phones being thinner.
    There is no telling what else they will take away from us.
    To you the Infra Red Blaster might not be much.
    And I've heard you can blue Tooth your phone to your new TV.
    But how does that control your Dish network box. It don't. That is what Infra Red was for.

    If Samsung can't make the phones, maybe they should sell the phone division to somebody that is willing to put the money in them and make a phone that has things we use.
    A Standard SD card slot will definitely slow the phones down. There is a new Technology out for new style SD cards.
    They haven't' figured out how to incorporate it in the phones and not charge a lot for them.
    Don't believe they will ever bring batteries back so you can change them. Nobody liked the Plastic backs that made it so you could swap batteries.
    Lot of the extensive software they had had been scaled back too. Like Find my mobile. You can't do a satellite view to show where it is and it show the buildings. Think they decided it was too dangerous for people to get that close to where a phone was.
    They need to make a law that will put a real hurt on somebody for stealing a Mobile phone..
    Like 10 yrs minimum. Cause so much valuable info is on them. Now Samsung Pay.

    But They need phones to be wider. If you want something smaller . They have the wrist phones out for you.
    In the future I think we will be even doing more with our phones. The smaller phones may be great for the very young.
    But for people getting older. They are just too small. And limit you to what you can do.

    You said "There's no point" instead of saying "There's no point for me" (meaning you) So that says there's no reason for anyone. I know you said it right after saying you don't want an SD card but I took it as there's no.point for anyone to want it.
    No harm, no foul. Just a miscommunication. Enjoy your day.
