Samsung’s Note 5 gets more space (if you don’t own it)

We weren’t too impressed that Samsung decided its Galaxy Note 5 should only come in 32GB, souring what was otherwise an excellent phone. Fortunately, the company has seen the light.

That means if you want more than 32GB in the business friendly Galaxy Note 5, you’ll now find a 64GB model in stores, with the bigger capacity making its way to Telstra, Dick Smith, JB HiFi, Bing Lee, The Good Guys, Harvey Norman, and Samsung’s own stores for a recommended retail price of $1199.

We’ve asked why Samsung has made this happen months after release instead of at the time, but so far the company hasn’t come back to us on the matter, and it might be a concern if you’ve already plonked the money on a 32GB model and owned it for a while.

It’s not as if you can just return this for a new size, and your only options to get more space are now to go to something external.


One caveat: this larger capacity will only arrive in one colour: gold.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it’s just one colour option, so if you prefer the deep blue colour, you’ll find you can only choose 32GB. Go figure.
