    Just curious when the next Galaxy comes out next year will anyone wait until the Note comes out? I love the Galaxy s6 but sometimes wondered about having a Note because of the screen and other features. I almost bought it 2 years ago but opted for a Galaxy S4 because it's just too darn big for a phone. I can't stand belt carry because I'm clumsy and the clips otterbox and other cases never work and bulky, but I conceal carry "legally" and in addition to carrying a pistol, spare mag, wallet, car keys and phone in my other pocket it's just too much bulk. The Note barely even fit in my pocket at the store and that was without a case. I guess if you're a lady it might be more practical because it can fit in a purse, but for a guy who must carry in the pocket it's just not practical.

    Non-removable battery from what I see so far, so no. I'll stick with my Note 3.

    Screen size and not needing a digitized stylus will keep me with the Galaxy line for a while.

    Why are they getting rid of removable battery? What is the advantage of doing that?

    Nop, I find the Note 4 too big. Even the S6 is a bit larger than I'd like, but unlike the Note, I still find it comfortable to use.

    The advantage to not having a removable battery is a slightly smaller device. Certainly not worth it in my opinion. I have had just about every device VZW has sold (except most motorolas). The notes obviously are much bigger and are very difficult to carry in your pocket. If you carry a pistol, wallet, keys, etc I can see where a bigger device could cause a problem. That's why Sammy makes both, to give people choices. I would have probably kept my note 4, as it is a great device, but not getting root kills me. So I have a S6 now and love it. I will probably get the note 5. But I have an obsession/addiction to new technology. It's a BIG problem. Could be worse I guess.

    The Note 5 sounds like it will be VERY impressive, but still darn it's big. Also I wonder if the price will go up when it's already a steep price.

    I am surprised that no one mentioned anything about having no replaceable battery and possibly no card slot.

    Until there's something official, should we assume? LOL

    But I hope not, I like the removable batteries and SD Cards.

    The Notes are too large to carry for me. I've been in Nexus devices for years so Samsung dropping the SD card and removable battery don't bother me at all.

    Nope. We won't know for sure until test unit reviews start. Let's put it this way. IF the GN5 came sealed with no card slot, would that affect a decision to switch?

    I thought my Note 4 was fantastic but I think the size of the GS6 is just right for me.

    And you think a cheap Chinese phone with no resale value will work better than a premium note 5? Oh ok. I'll take my chances with a samsung any day.

    I could probably, live with no sd card, and a non removable battery if it had a large enough battery. BUT, if the rumors are correct about the glass back, hail NO. I'm not in the circle of people that hated the plastic. I keep my phones in an otterbox defender anyhow, why would I want something even more breakable?

    Agreed. I think the Note 4 is probably the best Android so far but as an Active individidual..nowhere to carry it.

    A Note Compact with 4.8" to 5.1" screen with a large removable battery and SD Card at about 8 millimeters
    thick would be a great thing.

    Calling it a Note 5 Compact and priced the same as Note 5 could possibly avoid angering S6 customers.

    IF Samsung is stuck on the sealed in Battery thing- 8 millimeters thick would allow at least 3100 to 3300 Mah Battery- solving a lot of problems for Power Users- and stereo speakers would be nice side firing OK.
