Here’s my full review of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and why it’s still the best smartphone of 2015 even though they took out the removable battery, microSD, and IR blaster from Note 4.

My Rooted note 2 running macks allstar rom was a bit laggy and really starting to bug me. well, i flashed the pegasus kernel, i know, it's old news – but hey, thanks to you, i breathed new life into this old note 2. maybe i'll get another year or more out of it. THANKS for all your educational vids here, my man!

    REALLY NEED HELP
    Im between an S6 64g or a Note 5 32g.
    I really find the note 5s pen and features really cool and I think it would be better to get the newest phone possible. At the same time 64gs is a big deal and they are essentially the same phone. Advice?

    sd cards are over rated and temperamental at best anyway so that wouldn't bother me!

    Great review Max, picked up my Note 5 64gb today from Tmobile, they gave me a smoking deal!.  Thanks for the fantastic review, you sold me bro. I decided that the lack of removable battery and SD card will not be a deal breaker because of the awesomeness of this phone in every other way.  Talk later. 🙂

    note 4 still the best,, I will get another note until they put removable battery, and SD card….if battery goes bad you compromise the life of phone…need to get a new phone,,,no fair…..if the problem it's the battery, and is removable, just replace and don't need to buy another phone….conclusions, for those reasons, note 4 still the best phone.

    What are your thoughts on the galaxy note 5 having lag after a couple of weeks of use? I am debating about getting this phone or the Moto X pure edition? Coming from an iPhone I want as close to zero lag as I can and top of the line camera.

    Hey Max, I was wondering about the Note5's WiFi speed. How fast is it?
    I'm mainly interested in regards as using it as the main file transfer method from and to the phone.

    I don't understand why you keep calling it a flawed s-pen design: I doubt anyone would accidentally enter it backwards. I suppose some did just to see, but you know what they say: curiosity killed the cat.
