Wrap Up

    If I didn’t want to change the battery and didn’t care about the SD card slot I would be looking at the iPhone. This is a non-starter for me.

    I’m waiting on the next Galaxy with a removable battery and SD card.

    I don’t mind too much about the fact that it does not have an SD card (but its still crap that it doesn’t have one) but I think Samsung is shooting themselves in the foot for not having a 128gb version of these phones to offset the fact there is no SD Card.

    Smh. Once I heard they followed the design of the S6, I knew I wasn’t going to get 1. I have a Note 3 and had been waiting for the Note 5, too bad was waiting for nothing. No sd card is a dealbreaker for me, no removable battery as well, and they put that small ass battery- smh. Samsung has gone so far away from themselves it’s ridiculous. No thoughts to its customers, especially the Note customers. If you are going to go in a new direction, you have to do it better than everybody else and 3000 mAh ain’t going to get it. And no 128GB version? Not to mention if I absolutely have to go without an SD card, I’ll go Nexus, Pure Android, no waiting. I’ll probably be going with Moto X Pure or LG’s next high end.
