The Galaxy Note 5 is the final piece of the puzzle in Samsung's flagship smartphone line-up. The company announced it back in August, along with the Galaxy S6 Edge+ (Review | Pictures), and it is now available for purchase in India. So, what's changed in the Note 5? Is it a significant enough upgrade to jump ship from your Galaxy Note 4 (Review)? Let's find out.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Summary

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is an iterative update to last year’s flagship. The build and finish has improved and feels more durable. The internal processor is lot more powerful too and can handle any app you throw at it. Battery life is also good despite it having a slightly smaller battery than the Galaxy Note 4. The S Pen stylus comes with improved software features, which is always welcomed. Finally, the camera and multimedia performance is up to the mark as well. You do lose out on a few things like expandable storage and the IR blaster but all things considered, it’s great option for those looking to explore their creative side.

  • shame !!! samsung
    Rahul Srivastav (May 7, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    just 100 days of use , the screen goes off ! service centre says .. moisture gone in and in a country hot and humid for 9 months can't these concerns taken care , the tech there shows me the moisture , who is this belongs to mine or the assembly workshop people , requires a DNA test.. Unbelievably and suddenly the phone is out of warranty , if it is this way samsung then the entire product perspective is third rated , horrible and hugely disappointing. I have been committed user of Apple , moved to sam(U)sung .. to a complete horror ... Bye..Bye.. samsung you habe made a big hole in pocket and my trust and you now are out of my vision

  • Awsome phone but sometimes the performance was buggy.
    Sumit Jadhav (Jul 10, 2017) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I am using the phone since from 5 months, under warranty ( obiously ), tha performance of the phone is awsome and very durable, camera and all are more than an expect. There are some software issues after upgrading to nougut 7.0, the display sometimes not responding ( $tucks on a black screen) the phone was on but not showing the display. I have to press tha power key rapidly and then it will get start. I dont know what is happening, but when i downgrade to android marshmello the problem was getted solved but when i update to android nougut the problem again get start. But leave it. I like my phone as i like it on the first day i brought. Thank you samsung. Plz just resolve the bug.

  • A Fantastic Phone to go with...
    Rajen Shah (Sep 11, 2016) on Amazon
    It's the best phone till date with S7 coming to its next. I am using the phone for 3 months a d had carried it to US while I was on a trip. The pictures are magnificent. I didn't carry any other camera with me. All 4K videos too were captured using my Note 5 and looking at them, everyone were like WOW. The camera features are exceptional. Very sturdy phone, excellent battery backup.One advice - Always use wireless chargers where battery is non-removable. We all have the habit of over charging the battery all night. At least wireless charger is better to that extent. BUY ORIGINA)
