Samsung Galaxy Note5 Review

Score: 80.2 / 100

Samsung Galaxy Note5 is a top-level device released in 2015, having an exceptional 2100 megahertz Octa-Core CPU, a big size 5.7 inches screen, and two cameras, a 16 megapixels back side camera and a 5 megapixels front-facing camera. Let's take a closer sight of what this phone can give us.

Samsung made this phone in a nice range of color options like black sapphire, gold platinum, silver titan and white pearl. Talking about its construction, the Note5 is mostly manufactured with Glass and Metal . Samsung has made a really good design job making this device weight just 6.03 ounces. Being just 0.3" thick,this phone is incredibly thin and stilized. This device is a compact cellphone, taking into account that it packs a 5.7 inches display and it is just 6.03" long.

Samsung decided to sell this phone with a Samsung Exynos 7 Octa 7420 chip, backed up by a high performance 2100 megahertz Octa-Core processing unit with a huge 4 GB of RAM memory. This phone comes with a impressive 64 GB internal storage memory and even though it doesn't come with an SD memory card expansion slot, it it is more than enough to store tons of apps, games, photos and videos without worrying about filling the cellphone.

Samsung equipped this phone with a spectacular 5.7-inches screen, and a 1440 x 2560 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, providing this cellphone with a delightful graphical experience.

This cellphone has two cameras, a 16 mega-pixels back side camera and a 5 MP front camera. Its back side camera lens has a 1.9 aperture so it can shoot sharp photos even in low light situations. This cellphone also captures videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 frames per second, and 2560x1440 Quad HD / 2K slow-motion videos at 60 frames per second. This device also features auto-focus.

This phone provides wifi connectivity (and it can be provided to other devices acting as a router or modem), LTE-A 4G super fast connection type and fast 3G connectivity, supported by HSPA and HSUPA technologies. This cellphone has 2 Nano SIM cards so it is able to work with 2 different phone numbers.

The Note5 packs a 3000 mAh big Li - Ion non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for many hours without having to charge it at all. An issue to consider is that the Note5's battery isn't removable so you won't be able to replace it when it starts to last shorter, though with such a big battery you will probably discard this phone before it happens.

This phone also includes a wide range of great features like Biometric fingerprint, Wireless charging, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your cellphone close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth and GPS (Global Positioning System), and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

No matter if you will use this device for work, you love taking pictures, want this device mostly for social networks or need a cellphone to play tons of games, you will definitely be very satisfied with it.
