    It looks like the rumors were accurate regarding the non-removable battery and lack of a microSD slot for the new Galaxy Note 5. For some, these missing features are a deal-breaker, but others may not miss them much. Despite Samsung's questionable decision to exclude these features, the new Galaxy Note 5 is still packed with some impressive capabilities.

    Here are the best four that we could come up with off the top of our heads:
    • S Pen - still one of the best reasons to own a Note series phone.
    • QHD Super AMOLED display - Samsung continues their tradition of offering the best looking displays in the mobile phone industry.
    • Octa-core CPU, 4GB of RAM - with this much power, the Galaxy Note 5 should be able to handle anything you need it to without any problems.
    • Fast charging and wireless charging - we all have busy lives and being able to keep your Note juiced up shouldn't be inconvenient... this takes care of that.
    What do you guys think? Do these features help the Galaxy Note 5 stand out? Feel free to name what intrigues you most about this device.

    my favorite feature of either was writing notes with the s pen while screen is off. Other than that, I'm glad I got a Note4 and didn't wait for the 5

    The Note 5 does not need 4 GB of Ram, TW is the problem with Samsung, it's a system hog and it's Ram utilization is just horrendous. I own a Nexus 6 and Note 4, and the Nexus 6 runs circles around the Note 4, the ram is pretty much used up on the Note 4 for no reason.

    So glad to hear the N5 will have wireless charging. <3 my wireless pad at night.

    Other than that, the N5 is looking to be my replacement over my nexus 6. <3 Nexus but I'm a tech junkie. Gotta have the new stuff and love TMobile's Jump program letting me do it.

    My Note 4 has wireless charging. I bought this and it works even with a UAG case on the Note 4.

    I'll wait to see if someone makes an extended battery case with an SDcard slot for it. Plus if Devs are able to put Cyanogenmod onto the Note 5. I agree 4 Gig of ram is great. but TW is definitely a resource hog. I've gotten s-pen to work on my S4 so making the jump to the Note 5 is even less enticing.

    They dropped the IR sensor on the Note 5. I've sent the developers of the Peel app an email questioning them about whether or not their TV remote control app will finally revert to Wifi again.

    There will most likely be a battery/sdcard case from Incipio. They made one for the S6 and it is called the OffGrid.

    Another big clunky case, the Note 5 is a complete FAILURE.

    That is your opinion and where you are certainly entitled to it I completely disagree. The case is not clunky. You might want to check it out.

    And the Note 5 itself cannot be matched by any other phone. Not in camera quality, not in screen quality, and not in features.

    No one cares about the plethora of USELESS features that are nothing but memory hogs, screen is the same as in the Note 4 "which I own" , camera is the same as in the S6 which is slightly better than the Note 4, you sound like a Samsung fanboy. This Note 5 is a complete FAILURE on all levels.

    Useless to you doesn't make them useless to everyone in the world.

    Yes, I am a Samsung fanboy. So what? You sit here rooting about that humongous Nexus 6 that can't compare to Samsung's phones on any level. I'm glad that you enjoy it, but you obviously have an issue with Samsung and anyone that enjoys using their products.

    That's all fine and dandy though since you have choices. My choice is Samsung because they meet my expectations. When they stop doing that I will look elsewhere.
