    When the Note 5 was unpacked it surprised no one that their was no MicroSD Card slot. It did however bum many of you out. I have some good news for your today and I also have some bad news for you. As it turns out there is a Galaxy Note 5 variant coming that will feature a MicrSD card slot. That is the good news. The bad news is that it is coming in the form of a microsd card slot/ 2nd sim hybrid tray. The fact that it is included in the 2nd sim slot more than likely means that this will be an international variant device. This could be the device that Europe is missing! Technically if it is unlocked it should still work on US GSM carriers. The downside to this would be that you would have to pay to ship it internationally and any import fees. Would it be worth it to you to pay the extra to have the microsd card slot?

    Well, not gonna work for the masses here in the US unfortunately. Verizon is at least one carrier it won't work on and that's a huge chunk of that market share. Fail IMHO.

    It stinks that the overseas markets are often the first, and sometimes the only ones to see some of the coolest technology.

    No one cares about the SD....but a Phandroid poll showed 76% were pissed over the lack of a non-removable battery and no SD.

    it would have been more comical if they raped buyers for 128GB storage.

    Storage on the phone is not a deal breaker for me. Most of my stuff gets uploaded to google cloud or similiar anyway

    Why can't the phone manufactures bake a phone with all ratio's on it, like moto did with the nexus 6? think of how much money it would save, not having 20+ different variants and it goes down to 1 - 4 devices and they only have to manufacture the different memory sizes.

    Actually the added cost of the wasted components in those phones which will never get to use them is probably far more expense.

    Incipio, I believe, created a smart case which acts as a spare battery and had an SD slot. It's not Ideal but it is an option for those complaining about these features.

    Read this Samsung Galaxy S6 Battery Case Galaxy S6 Cases Incipio

    There are plans to expand to the note phones.

    You won't have to pay international shipping at all. Most recognized phone vendor websites will stock these here in the U.S.

    If you can deal with 4G as being the fastest network connection available then buying this phone would be a no-brainer for folks on the GSM networks.

    Verizon alienated themselves and all of their customers by launching a non-standard network while the rest of the world enjoys complete phone compatibility regardless of where you travel.

    The S3 was supposed to be world capable and can still work globally on some GSM bands around the world, but the S4, S5 & higher are fully capable of working most anywhere in the world. save for the smaller GSM band networks.

    S5 tap'n
