Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Review:
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 looks premium. Samsung uses 7000 series aluminium and coring Gorilla glass 4 for the construction which lends the notes a sturdy, yet attractive feel. Unlike the galaxy s6 edge +, whose screen curves around the sides, the notes have a more subtle curved back. This leaves you with sides wide enough to grip comfortably so there's less chance of it slipping from your hand. It's also easier to reach the power and volume buttons. The front of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is dominated by a gorgeous 5.7-inch QHD super AMOLED display. Colours are punchy and text is sharp. The screen is also very legible under direct sunlight. The Nano-sim tray is placed on the top while the headset socket, Micro-USB port, speaker grille and S pen silo are all on the bottom. Samsung has devised a more civilised way of ejecting the S pen by pressing the head to pop it out. This simply lets you pull the stylus out easily instead of having to pry it out with your fingernails. Around the back we have a 16-megapixel camera and a cluster with the LED flash and heart rate sensor. The front with the 5-megapixel camera.
Specifications and Software:
Samsung Galaxy Note 5's hardware and software are practically identical to galaxy s6 edge +. Let's start with the styles.Its still made of plastic and is easy to use but the metallic finish around the main button and the top lend it a more polished look.pressure sensitivity is similar to that of the Galaxy Note4, which makes it a great tool for artists.The major change lies in air command the S pen's software companion. You can set it to activate as soon as the pen is ejected if you like features such as Action Memo, smart select and screen write are displayed with colour coded icons instead of black and white carousel like in previous versions. This makes identifying them simpler. Action Memo lets you quickly hot down notes, smart select lets you crop a portion of the screen for editing, sharing or saving; screen write lets you take screenshots and even lets you grab full-length captures of web pages with the 'scroll capture' feature this is super useful when you want to share an entire webpage as a single image.'screen off memo' is another new addition which lets you take notes without having to switch the display on.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is an absolute beast in the performance department. The interface is slick and heavy apps and games are no trouble for this smartphone. The octa-core Exynos 7420 processor and 4GB of ram ensure everything runs smoothly. The new soC is also a big upgrade over last year's Galaxy Note4, which has Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 SoC. The performance difference is best reflected in AnTuTu, which threw up a score of 68,277, compared to the 46,678 we got on its predecessor. Gaming does tend to make the phone quite warm, which get an uncomfortable table after a bit. The volume from the speaker is loud and audio is relatively clear and distinct. We like that Samsung has moved the speaker from the back of the phone to the bottom as the new layout doesn't muffle the sound when the device placed on any flat surface. The span works as advertised and is a useful tool for your artistic pursuits.
Samsung Galaxy Note 5's Camera performance is very good and the app offers a pro mode, as well as the new live broadcast feature images, are detailed and low-light performance is good, letting you have some fun with long exposure shots. The galaxy note 5 performed well in our video loop test too, lasting 16 hours and 32 minutes. This is more than what we got from Samsung galaxy s6 edge+, despite them being pretty similar in terms of hardware. The rear camera with 16 megapixels and the front camera comes with 5megapixel.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was originally offered in models with 32GB,64GB of internal storage.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has a smaller battery than the note 4.Now there's a 3,000 mAh battery down from 3,200 mAh on in the note 4.I found the 5's battery performance is very similar to s6's. It will get you a day and a half on average with general news which is same as iPhone 6s plus.That's without tapping into one of the two power saving now available on the note 5.The ultra power saving mode has been moved to the battery section in the setting menu.
