    I hope they upgrade Samsung Kies to take advantage of this. Current tethered backups take foreverrrrrr.

    yeah but with apple going usb c we can all share charging cords at work. No longer are people walking around asking if you have an apple or android.

    Then again that could also be a bad thing if you have to worry about cord snatchers.

    So true. It never fails, the same people come running through the office or shop frantically asking if someone has a cable because they are down to 5% battery life watching videos on fb.

    My Note 3 is USB 3.0...and I love it.

    Kinda sad that more phones didn't go that route, but I understand

    holding onto my Note 3 for dear life.the only thing it would take for me to Pony Up full price for the note 5 would be front facing speakers, refining indoor photo graininess, keeping the sd card and adding a bigger(4500+ mAh) removable battery. They're probably going to crAppleize the phone though, at which point, I'll wait for some intelligent manufacturer to make a true workhorse phablet.

    I sure hope the charging port changes to type C! It's about time we get something universal for all manufacturers. I love (can't believe I'm using that term) the charging port on the iPhone because it doesn't matter what way you plug it in.
