SAMSUNG, the South Korean smartphone manufacturer has released the latest version of its NOTE line of series. Along with the release of the note 5 Samsung also announced the release the flagship models in the S line of series and decided to call it the Samsung galaxy S6 EDGE+.
The Samsung galaxy note 5 was recently made available for buyers in the Indian market. In this article we discuss weather is it really worth full to shell out the money and upgrade to this phone if you are already a galaxy note 3 or galaxy note 4 user?
LOOKS AND DESIGN
Samsung has gone a little beyond on the styling department than what it had don’t on the note 4 and the note 3. The galaxy note 5 definitely looks and feels much better than its older siblings. The note 5 has a very premium feel to it. The phones touch screen is protected by gorilla glass 4 and the body is constructed by aluminium, this makes the phone looks really very sturdy. Unlike on the previous note versions, the accessibility to reach the power and the volume button is much better. The phone has become even more comfortable to grip while holding it in the hand because if the curved back and edges.
Most of the front part of the phone is taken up by the huge 5.7’ QHD AMOLED display. The screen is vivid, the text is sharp. The screen doesn’t look dull even under direct sunlight.
SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE
The internal specifications of the phone match exactly to the specifications of the s6 edge+.
The 5.7’ display has a resolution of 1440×2560 pixels. It has a 16mp rear camera and a 5mp front facing camera. The camera performance is quite good and the camera does manage to shoot good photos even under low light conditions. The phone is powered by an exynos octa-core processor which is actually two separate units of quad-core processors. The lower is clocked at 1.5GHZ and the higher is 2.1GHZ. The processor along with the 4GB of ram provided gives this device plenty of power to handle heavy apps and games with ease. The phone has a battery capacity of 3000mah
The stylus is actually made of plastic though it looks like metal because of the metal accents. The pressure sensitivity of the galaxy note 5 is somewhat same to the sensitivity which we saw on the galaxy note 4. The only major improvement in the note 5 stylus is the air view option. With the new S pen there come new setting that you can change around and set it accordingly to your wish.
If you require a phone with a stylus and have the budget to buy a note 5 then definitely buy it as it is one of the best phones you can buy in the market currently. If you are one of the people who own a note 4 and wish to upgrade to a note 5, it is not that great as the note 4 also does plenty of things the note 5 does while the note 5 has even cut back on some of the luxuries offered by the note 4 in order to save costs.
