personally i dont think Samsung will launch another 2 new flagship models without at least 1 of them having external storage after the previous 2 new duds...i mean models and somemore Note series is positioned to be suppose to be all rounder workhorse, stylus and such. if they exclude that, it is as good as torpedo their own left foot.

so if the Note 5 with Removable Storage AND Dual Sim really takes off, i know where I would be getting it

WE HAVE A GONER! Thread Closed. Move on Folks.

Pics of final Samsung Galaxy Note 5 leak ahead of August 13 event




Purported photos of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 have spent more time on the internet than snaps of Kim Kardashian’s bottom, but now we may be seeing the finished article. Of the phone, that is, not the bottom.

The Droid-Life website has obtained what it claims to be images of the completed 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 5, which will be all-but-certainly be unveiled on August 13.

“It looks a lot like a bigger Galaxy S6 with its metal frame and glass panels, but it differs in that the back has an Edge-like curve to it, likely to make it easier to hold,” the report says, while also pointing out the “crazy thin” bezels.

Beyond the look and feel, the source adds credence to reports hinting the S Pen will be spring-loaded.

There’s also a regular USB port (no OnePlus Two-style Type-C here) and, like the Galaxy S6 it seems there’ll be no SD slot to accompany the 32/64/128GB storage options.

The leak represents the clearest look yet at the device, which will attempt to follow in the footsteps of a long line of successful Note phablets.

Samsung’s latest effort will take centre stage at the Unpacked Event in New York City next Thursday.

The company is also rumoured to be launching the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and its new round-faced Gear A smartwatch.

Samsung usually reserves its autumn mobile launches until the IFA tech show, but it is thought the Koreans are hoping to steal a march on Apple before the iPhone 6S range arrives.

No SD card slot isn't a deal breaker for me. I'm already using a lot of cloud storage anyway and found SD card to be troublesome. I think the performance gain from UFS 2.0 is worth it in my time with the S6. :p

But probably going to be a deal breaker for some. Maybe having no removable battery and expandability will help keep the resale value of the note 4 up. Hahaha.

No card slot isn't such a big deal breaker since higher capacity model will be introduced however, non removable battery and if capacity is capped at 3000mAh instead of the previously rumoured 4100mAh then it is sayonara note 5.

I had the chance to test out the A8 here in Malaysia earlier.
Accordingly to the staff, he mentioned that A8 sold in Malaysia is based on SD615 (in oppose to Exynos in SG) which during my test is not so snappy. (even compared to my current Note 3).

One more issue with A8's camera, focusing is fast but picture does not turn out to be as sharp and has less details than even my 2 year old Note 3.

With that said, coming from Note 3, A8 is not an upgrade.

These are two different classes, ought to have differences. As much as I love A8, the almighty Note 4 is just a tad more at current street prices *hint*
