No longer! If you'd rather kiểm tra out Samsung's latest cảnh báo family member, be sure lớn head over khổng lồ our Samsung Galaxy chú ý 8 review!
Original review (August 2015): Over the past few years, Samsung has followed a release cycle featuring two major flagships, under the Galaxy S và Galaxy cảnh báo monikers. Apart from the obvious difference in size, there has always been some separation in design, build quality, và features between the two series, và the mainstream acceptance of large display smartphones led khổng lồ the Galaxy note series emerging as the more compelling option in recent times.

With a new, yet controversial, thiết kế language, và some enhancements underneath the surface, does the latest addition lớn the Galaxy cảnh báo family continue the legacy of the series? We find out, in this comprehensive reviews of the Samsung Galaxy cảnh báo 5!
Perhaps the most important part of the new Galaxy note 5 is that it feels lượt thích we’ve been here before, và that starts with the design. Though much of the Galaxy design language remains as familiar as ever, the just-released Galaxy cảnh báo now takes its build unique cue from the latest Galaxy S series flagship, offering a metal và glass construction. Glass panels are kept together with a metallic frame, and all màu sắc options include translucent effects that literally make the phone shine and reflect.
The use of glass means that the lưu ý 5 is also the most fingerprint prone cảnh báo device we’ve seen, which is another trope that it derives from the Galaxy S6. But, unlike the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, the Galaxy note 5 manages to lớn be just a bit more than a blown up Galaxy S6, with its subtle curves along the sides of the back, that actually help with the handling of this large phone.
Of course, much of what we all remember from Samsung devices returns here. The buttons are all where one would expect them, with the fingerprint scanner integrated into the tactile trang chủ button up front. The scanner now works with a simple touch, which is a far better implementation than the swipe version found with its predecessor. Down at the bottom is the micro
USB port, the headphone jack, the speaker grill, as well as the S-Pen, nestled very neatly into the bottom right corner.
The S-Pen also gets some real updates in design, as is evident when you pop out the top, which has been done in order allow the pen to lớn be flush with the body, making it look và feel sleeker than before. The click on the vị trí cao nhất is yet another toy to lớn mess with, and any avid S-Pen user will probably take advantage of it as they gather their thoughts in between taking down any notes.
This is also a good place lớn address the “Pengate” controversy that has been making the rounds – while it is true that you are able to put the S-Pen into the slot backwards, that is certainly not a reason to vì so. Even if the S-Pen could have fit backwards without affecting the sensor, I think all users should still be wary of how they are inserting this stylus, and the problem goes away.
The new kiến thiết language of the cảnh báo 5 brings one very significant change that is quite the point of contention, & that is the lack of a removable back cover, and all that it entails. That means no expandable storage via micro
SD card, and no user-replaceable battery. These were two features that previously made Galaxy lưu ý devices the go-to phones for power nguồn users, và that is unfortunately not the case anymore. Sacrificing these two features does make for the thinnest, most beautifully constructed Galaxy Note điện thoại cảm ứng ever though. Handling might suffer from a pretty slippery glass kiến thiết (up until the fingerprints & smudges slow it down), but the Galaxy chú ý 5 still manages to have one of the most appealing aesthetics, even if it now feels overly familiar.
The Galaxy chú ý 5 comes with a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a 2560 x 1440 resolution, which is, on paper, identical lớn the display of its predecessor. However, the display has been incrementally enhanced khổng lồ improve on an already fantastic viewing experience. Quad HD makes a lot of sense on a larger display, resulting in an excellent pixel density of 518 ppi, despite the large size. The high saturation Super AMOLED construction proves to lớn be as great as ever, allowing for vibrant, vivid colors, & plenty of brightness for comfortable viewing in broad daylight. You vị have the option lớn tone down the saturation though, if that better suits your tastes.
What we think is the most important about this panel, however, is the really small bezel ratio. There is very little space on the sides of the display, which helps tremendously with the handling experience. For a phone that giao dịch with text and writing, the screen really shines, but fire up a very colorful trò chơi or clip and using this display will be an absolute joy.
Performance is a high-point for the Galaxy note 5, thanks to Samsung’s use of its in-house processing package, which has been optimized for the toned-down Touch
Wiz. The octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, clocked at 2.1 GHz, returns from the Galaxy S6, where it really shined, bringing with it an additional gigabyte of RAM, for 4 GB in total. That combination allows for some strong multi-tasking, & that’s great, given the availability of the S-Pen và all of its features.
There is no doubt in our minds that this processing package is a great performer, as a whole week of above-average use has yet lớn slow down this phone, on which we’ve installed apps, used trackers, watched videos, played games, and taken lots of pictures và videos with. The Galaxy chú ý 5 succeeds where the chú ý line has always excelled – being the fastest & best iteration of the Galaxy experience in any given year.
In hardware, some familiar additions return with the Galaxy note 5. On the back of the phone, right next khổng lồ the camera package is where the heart rate monitor can be found. It works about as well as ever, thanks lớn a streamlined S-Health app, but this is not a feature you will probably use very often.
The device packs a standard suite of connectivity options, including NFC, which will be a part of the upcoming Samsung Pay ecosystem. Phone calls come in loud và clear, & I had no dropped calls during my usage with the T-Mobile network. Speaking of audio, the single speaker unit on the bottom benefits from a better placement from before, but provides the expected quality. It gets pretty loud, but without much body in the sound, but we’re glad it doesn’t overdo the high ends though.
Fingerprint reading is a thing of the future, and Samsung makes it work quite well in the Galaxy lưu ý 5. Setting it up for web sign-in credentials is possible, but, for the most part, the primary use of the fingerprint scanner will be to unlock the phone. The scanner’s usefulness will also see a bump when Samsung Pay officially launches later this year.
On the storage front, the Galaxy lưu ý 5 comes with 32 GB or 64 GB options, without the possibility to expand the storage, leaving power nguồn users dependent on choosing the larger version, along the premium it entails. As was the case with the Galaxy S flagships, the storage in the Galaxy chú ý 5 is UFS 2.0, which is a standard that can rival speeds of SSDs, và that helps with maximizing speed. That, of course, might not be reason enough to lớn warrant the removal of expandable storage, but the smooth performance of the device can definitely be attributed lớn optimized internals, over a myriad of unknowns coming from micro
SD cards. A lot of people won’t be convinced, but it’s something we thought should be considered.
Finally, when it comes lớn the battery, the Galaxy lưu ý 5 packs a 3,000 m
Ah unit, & that capacity does seem a little bit small at first glance. In our testing, we found that the device could still handle a full day of work without any problems, though getting anything more than that is a stretch. Screen-on time never really got beyond 4.5 hours, but with an impressive standby time, if the device remains unused a lot, it might by easy khổng lồ get more than a full day out of it.
In attempting to keep the latest Galaxy chú ý phone as thin as possible, Samsung hit a hard limit on the battery kích thước of the note 5, and focused on charging it as fast as possible instead. For example, the note 5 boasts faster wireless charging, although the high speeds are only available with Samsung’s own wireless charger. It is also nice that the device supports both the PMA và Qi wireless charging standards out of the box, but the cordless life that Samsung seemed very excited about at the launch sự kiện still feels a little far off.
The cảnh báo 5’s fast charging capabilities will prove more useful for most users, as the device requires only 10 to lớn 15 minutes to lớn get back khổng lồ decent battery life, and only about an hour khổng lồ be fully charged. Granted, fast charging does feel lượt thích a consolation prize for losing true longevity. But it shouldn’t be difficult to find 15-minute charging windows throughout the day, so that you aren’t worried about running out of juice.
The chú ý 5 retains the unique in the camera department, quite literally in this case: the camera on the device is basically the same with the Galaxy S6′, with its 16 MP rear shooter with a f/1.9 aperture & 4K video clip recording capabilities, along with a 5 MP wide angle lens front-facing camera.
By far, the best part about the camera experience is the ability khổng lồ bring it up by simply hitting the home button twice, which will quickly và easily launch the camera app. The manual controls of the mostly familiar app have been given a few more options, such as being able to lớn change the Kelvin reading in the white balance slider, which isn’t available with the Galaxy S6 camera.
There are all the usual modes as well, with everything from slow motion, to lớn a new video collage mode that is fun lớn use. Live broadcasting is also now available, with You
Tube as the platform, which is basically a Periscope built into the app. We think it isn’t something most users will use, and even then, more established streaming services like Snapchat or Periscope might still take priority. Shooting in the ứng dụng is nice & quick in most situations, and though there is some spot metering when tapping to lớn focus, a slider for changing the exposure does appear if you need it.

Picture quality remains as great as ever, keeping Samsung at the đứng đầu of the heap in the apk world. Good saturation across the board keeps pictures from ever being dull, and detail is also captured really well. Users can benefit from the f/1.9 aperture for depth of field effects, & it does help a bit in low light situations. Of course, pictures do get the expected level of noise due to lớn higher ISO compensation, and the tiện ích gets a little slow when trying to lớn focus in low light conditions. Much like the Galaxy S6 proved earlier this year, the great camera experience of the Galaxy cảnh báo 4 can be improved upon, và thus, the Galaxy chú ý 5 gets all the benefits of this past year’s evolution in camera quality and performance.
