Research Your Galaxy Note 5 Storage Needs

Research Your Galaxy Note 5 Storage Needs

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 isn't official yet but that doesn't mean that you can't prepare for its arrival. There are a number of things you can do ahead of Samsung's announcement and release and deciding on how much storage you might need is one of them. 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 design is reportedly going to be similar to the Galaxy S6's. That means premium build materials but it also means no microSD card slot for expanded storage. If this is true, and it probably is, it's going to put pressure on you to figure out how much internal storage you'll need. 

If Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 doesn't feature expandable storage, it'll likely come with several storage options. Those storage options will vary in price. You don't want to pay for storage that you're never going to need so you'll want to think about this ahead of time.

Take a look at your current device, think about how you might use your next phone, and estimate how much storage it will take to feel comfortable. For some of you, it might be 32GB. For others, it might be a 128GB of space. 

We don't know how much the Galaxy Note 5 will come with yet but chances are we'll see some sort of combo featuring 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.

    Non replaceable battery and no sd card will be a deal breaker for me. Have had samsung phones for 8 years but may have to move on. :(

      I’ve been w Samsung since the 1st Galaxy S.
      Went to the Note 1, 2 & 3. Been waiting for the 5 since I got my 3…
      No removable battery & no micro SD card, will FORCE me to go (back to) Apple iPhone 6+…
      Sad but true.
      Those 2 factors were the biggest selling points to me, as well! I HAD the 1st Gen iPhone, but left for the Galaxy S….

        Why would you go back to the crapple just because they got rid of the battery and SD? theirs doesn’t have either and doesn’t even have the S-Pen. I hate that hey got rid of the SD too, but love the features of my Note 3 and will likely get the Note 5 soon.

    Well I to was looking forward to the Note 5 but not being able to use a micro sd card with it is also probably going to be a deal breaker!! So said because I really wanted that phone.
