Note series from Samsung have always been bigger with some serious specs underneath, and the new Note 5 follows the same trend: It offers a huge 5.7 inch QuadHD SuperAMOLED display, a 14nm octa core Exynos 7420 system on a chip, and 4GB of RAM which is indeed Samsung ‘s first phone to have so. It also sports a new revamped 16-megapixel rear camera with Optical image stabilization, a 5-megapixel front snapper, and a storage option of 32 or 64GB.
In terms of design, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is inspired from the Galaxy S6. The phablet features a metal frame sandwiched between two pieces of toughened gorilla glass. It comes with a slight curve on the back that makes it a bit more comfortable to hold and use the device with one hand.
However, gone are the 2 aspects because of the revamped design: No MicroSD card slot and No Removable Battery. Moreover, the device is thinner than last year’s Note 4 making it relentless to pack a smaller battery inside(3000mAh). However, Samsung claims that the battery life will be better than that of Note 4 thanks to the advancement in AMOLED technology and more power efficient Exynos chipset that’s powering the phone.
