Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is the latest and greatest from the big smartphone lineup from Samsung. So with this latest in the note series is most of the biggest change and most of the new stuff comes up with this phone. It has new design language, a new look of the hardware and just how different it looks and feels then the last note. Let know the full review, specifications, and price of Samsung galaxy Note 5.
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has all metal and glass on the outside. So chamfered metal rails on the sides of the phone. And curved all glass back that is prettier but also potentially much uglier when you inevitably get a bunch of fingerprints on it. This thing is a fingerprint magnet. It's available in four colors sapphire, blue, white and titanium.
The Titanium shows the least fingerprints and you are probably noticing it’s taken a lot of this design language from its little brother the Galaxy S6. So steel back nonremovable, thin edges to hold on to and now with its larger size the Galaxy Note 5 takes the crown for “the slipperiest phone of all time” both in hand and pocket. I swear it slipped out of my pocket in cars more than any other phone. This is the phone you would like to change the back for holding it and lowering the fingerprints.
Again buying case doesn’t solve the problem as putting on the case makes the hefty phone heftier. So the easiest way to change the texture without adding any bulk would be a skin. And the placements are a headphone jack, USB type c port stereo speakers are at the bottom. The pen slot is at the bottom. The capacitive buttons are available on the bottom panel with a fingerprint sensor which is super tactile, satisfying and easier to press. No IR blaster is available.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 speaker at the bottom is louder and fairly impressive. On the front of the phone, the Note 5 is rocking a 5.7 inch 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution which is a super AMOLED display. It got excellent brightness and plenty readable outdoors great viewing angles and really saturated but adjustable colors and spans pretty much to the edges of the phone with the super thin bezels.
It is the best display on any smartphone right now. If you like screens then this is the best. Having such a great display is always the strong point of the device and that’s no exception here and the specs inside push all those pixels just fine. In fact, the Galaxy Note 5 is the beast in the spec department bringing up a lot of the top hardware from the Galaxy S6 and it pretty much checks all the boxes so octa-core Exynos was so good.
It comes with USB 2.0 port at the bottom which is a downgrade and even the smaller 3000mAh battery is also a downgrade. This is such a high powered device and the 3000mAh battery is not enough. The battery life on the Galaxy Note 5 was pretty decent and better than the galaxy S6. The stylus functionality is pretty much improved.
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Camera on the phone is the arguably the best on any available smartphone. Here are some shots I took in my few weeks using the Note 5 as a daily driver. Just casual snaps obviously have optical image stabilization and some sharpening and some post productions make for some of the crispiest smartphone photos of all time.
Even in low light, I could take handheld shots with a slow shutter speed and still get crispy stuff out of auto mode. The Note 5 is great at that auto mode. The phone that really comes close to the Note 5 is the LG G4 in manual mode.
