[Weekend Poll] Would The Loss Of An SD Card And Removable Battery Make You Less Likely To Buy A Galaxy Note 5?

While far from completely definite, strong rumors abound that the Galaxy Note 5 will not have a removable battery or an SD card slot. Given that the phone is suspected to essentially be a giant Galaxy S6 with a stylus, that makes sense.

What may not make sense is the continued allure of the Note series of devices if this is true, at least among you - people who read Android Police. The stylus isn't without value to some users (I, personally, have never been one of them), but the flexibility of a removable battery and expandable storage have long made the Note series the all-around power user device of choice among Android fans.

This Is Probably What The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Looks Like

With all the rumors and now some FCC documents to go on, it seems a foregone conclusion that Samsung will be releasing a larger version of the Galaxy S6 Edge called the S6 Edge Plus. Now there are a few leaked images that seem to show a dummy Edge Plus unit, which gives you a good idea what the real device will look like. It's sitting next to a Note 4 dummy in the pics to illustrate the increased size.

Galaxy S6 Review Addendum: Three Months Later

The Galaxy S6 has been out for three months now, so it's time to revisit this phone and see if any of my feelings from the original review have evolved. At the time this seemed like a pretty fantastic phone with few drawbacks.

SamMobile Reports That The Galaxy Note 5 And Galaxy S6 Edge+ Will Be Announced August 12th, Released On The 21st

A rumor has been circulating that Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 5 earlier than usual this year. Instead of debuting at IFA in Berlin sometime in September, it looks like the device will make its first appearance in mid-August. Well, now we have dates. SamMobile seems pretty confident that the Note 5 will get announced on August 12th before hitting store shelves on the 21st. And it won't be alone. The rumored Galaxy S6 Edge+ is apparently coming along for the ride.

Despite the differences in name, think of both devices as larger versions of the S6 and S6 Edge.

Samsung Announces The Crazy-Thin Galaxy A8, Only Available In China For Now

The Samsung Galaxy A8 has been rumored for a while, but only now has the company made it official. This mid-range phone has a distinctly Galaxy S6 sort of look, but it's even thinner. Too bad it's only going on sale in China.

Dashlane Password Manager Gets Support For Samsung Fingerprint Readers

Starting with the Galaxy S5, Samsung has been building fingerprint readers into the home buttons of its flagship devices. Their primary purpose is to give owners an alternative way of unlocking their phones. But some apps, such as LastPass, also take advantage of the hardware. Now another password manager has added support.

Dashlane's biometic authentication lets you swipe your fingerprint to automatically log in to sites or autofill information. It works on the Galaxy S5, S6, Note 4, and Note Edge. Dashlane will prompt you to enable the extra security when you fire up the app on one of these devices.

Rumor: Samsung May Be Fast Forwarding The Galaxy Note 5 Launch To Mid-August, Pre-IFA

 

It is customary for Samsung to launch its Note flagships each year during IFA in Berlin, sometime around the beginning of September. This year though might be different, as rumors are starting to circulate that the Note 5 could launch a little earlier than that — toward mid-August.

According to our good friend, "a person familiar with the matter," who has spoken to both Reuters and The Wall Street Journal, Samsung is planning on changing its strategy to short-circuit Apple's yearly iPhone launch. It seems that the company wants to grab as big of a piece of the pie as it can before the others even arrive to the party.
