They were apparently making 56 models last year. So, if they've cut it to 36, that progress! " src="http://forums-files.appleinsider.com/images/smilies//lol.gif" />
I just made up the 36. It could well still be 56 for all I know.
Other than the edge thing, what's the difference and why do they need two models?
One is to look cool, the other is to do cool.
So the Note 5 is basically just a jumbo sized S6.

Honest question - what does the Note 5 have in terms of upgrades/features/design above the Note 4?
Since there is no SD slot the least they could have done is offer a 128 gig option for these new phones. Especially for the Note 5 which is arguably the power users choice.
At least they didn't mess with that world class screen. That screen is possibly the best reason to consider either of these phones.
EDIT: I stand corrected. Samsung does offer a 128 gig model for the new flagships: http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/cell-phones/all-products

Confusing memory with storage space.

Yup. Pretty lame IMO.
Even though i hate Samsung I kinda had some respect for the Note because it was totally of the wall. When it came out there were no phone like it. But now they are simply following Apple's 6/6+ model. Sad.

Pathetic that the largest memory size is 64GB
IMO, Samsung has made a HUGE error by:
1. getting rid of the easily swap battery
2. getting rid of SD card slot
3. getting rid of water proof
Those were the 3 things that made the Galaxy/Note different from the iPhone.
Now the only thing different is the lame curve screen and stylus.

This is a really tiresome meme. Samsung have been using Plus with various models since at least the S2 and probably before. They really should pare down the range of phones they make, it's utterly bewildering and confusing. They should have 6 phone models at most, not 36.
Yeah. "Fearless" seemed like a funny adjective to use with regard to innovation, but in the context of what they seem to think "innovation" means, it makes more sense.
They never used the Plus moniker with their flagship phones = Galaxy S and Note.
Not that you really care.
Who heard of those? Hardly anyone. They were not Samsungs top sellers.
Like I said, not that you really care.
Apple uses "iPhone 6 Plus"
Samsung uses "Galaxy S6 edge+"
What will be the price of these?
Galaxy S6 - $650
Galaxy S6 Edge - $750
Galaxy S6 Edge+ - $850?
Galaxy Note 5 - $750?
Crazy expensive. We will see massive discounts once the iPhone6S comes out.
Why Samsung makes much less money than Apple with comparable pricing model?
Samsung and Oculus have close ties. Beyond GearVR, the Oculus Rift DK2 actually used the display from a Note 3.
