Dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy Note 5 to have microSD support

07 August, 2015
A report out of Taiwan claims the dual-SIM version will let you insert a microSD in the second SIM slot.

Sort by:

Well, more news that the regular Note will not have expandable memory - which will be most of the World, and more confirmation of the back being glass and fixed. Haha - this is what I call a step back, not forward as the most advanced most versatile and most powerful device on the planet.

Yeah, early eager complacent adopters will get it, only to find out later that Samsung is going to out a version that has all the features that it should. That'd be funny.

Glass back is so old news that even Apple and Sony ditched it. What do you do when you have a glass back phone - that's right, you cover it up. So much for being "premium". It has become a bling thing, not a tool anymore.

Micro sd card slot and removable battery is just useless features.
they make the phone SLOW and WEAK . It makes the UI LAG A LOT and the phone LOOKS CHEAP.but some ppl here are used to CHEAP THINGS and LAGS.they just can't live without it and troll here forever.. lol.

AnonD-389805, 08 Aug 2015You say people shouldn't just blindly accept yet in other posts ... moreWe know right. A novel could be written out of the number of comments he writes. It's just so numerous and repetitive, we could already conclude something out of them. I'm guessing he is very ready to blindly reject a device without a MicroSD support and a removable battery but also very keen to blindly accept a device that comes with both features

i'm considered myself a samsung fan, because they have removable battery (one of very few). thats why I'm stay away from sony, htc. lg is not good enough (idk, its like chinese phone. no offense).

they going too far (even remove microsd?), so I skip this 2015 flagship. maybe next year then. but if samsung still use this apple strategy next year, I'm surely will look into another android brand. even if it hadn't removable battery.

Do you even know what side you're going to be on in any particular day or do you lose track of your trolling?

You are in the minority of the "I'll-get-the-Note-5-even-without-SD-card-s­lot-or-removable-battery-because-it's-just-cool-­for-us-even-if-we-know-it's-less-useful-than-the­-last-model-because-we-love-the-glass-back-looki­ng-stunning-will-get-it-anyway-with-lots-of-cash­" crowd. Nothing wrong with that opinion. Just that you belong to the 11% of tech fans who bother reading and commenting who want this no matter what. 89% of us think otherwise. It isn't just me.

We want a complete versatile and powerful TOOL, not an incomplete TOYish iPhone-wannabe expensive device that you want to take out to show off. If wanted that, keep or buy the S6 - it's $200 LESS after poor sales because it's likely the fact it tremendously took out most of the features from previous models, making more iPhonish. Samsung is committing a business suicide.

no removable battery & no microsd its just dumb for power user

Anonymous, 08 Aug 2015I am confused. Are you a Samsung hater or a Sammy fanboy? All yo... moreI'm very much Pro Galaxy Note - the ones that has more features, more power, more everything present technology can offer, more options of how it's going to be used, not this LESSER-capable Galaxy Note 5.

I don't care about Samsung as an entity brand name, nor care about the S series. What I care about are its Note series being the best as it should be. No compromises on the battery being changeable, no compromise on the expandable memory. Next thing you know, they'll remove the S Pen, and some people will say, " I can't wait to buy it...!"

Complacency to LESSER features has no place for the next Galaxy Note.

Usability and versatility have been always the mark of the Galaxy Note lineup.

For anybody complaining how "slow" micro SD cards are, get yourselves there ones that are fast as 100mb/s. At least you get more volume than a 32GB with 26GB of user usability. $75 to $100+, than spend $100 more for just 32GB additional storage.

There only thing now is the confirmation of that removable battery, or else it's limited than the previous models. Of like to stick in a Zerolemon 10000mAh, and a 128GB micro SD card and I'd have a powerful long usable media player and communications device.
