Average Rating:
88%


Description:

Taking after the Galaxy S6/S6 Edge's top-line profile, the Samsung Galaxy Note5 banks on an S-Pen-rigged 5.7-inch Quad HD screen (with Gorilla Glass 4 protection), an Exynos 2.1GHz + 1.5GHz eight-core processing system with 4GB of RAM, as well as 16- and 5-megapixel VDIS cameras...

What We Like:

  • It is one of the earliest smartphones to offer Bluetooth v4.2
  • Its 4GB RAM adds it to the rather short list of smartphones that share the spec
  • Mixing the eMMC and SSD memory types (Universal Flash Storage) is an innovative feature introduced by the S6 models
