Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 5 in India for ₹53,900 for the 32GB version and ₹59,900 for the 64GB version. These Note smartphones are unique and fall in the premium category. The latest Note 5 handset will be available from 20th September 2015.
Build quality no doubt is very good, the design has changed a bit and there are quite a few, but interesting features that have been added. The S-Pen itself got a small makeover, it’s using a click mechanism, that simply ejects a small part that can be further pulled out easily.
The best addition is the ability to use the S-Pen in standby mode – This is how it works, Phone is in standby mode, the screen is off – Just remove the S-Pen and start writing on the Black, Blank Screen!. Yes it works, and almost instantly.
If you are a note user, recall the instances when you had the note (the older one) and you reached out for a pen and paper when you eagerly wanted to note something, and avoid the Note because it took time to switch on the phone, the app and then use the S-Pen. With Note 5 you might never need pen and paper, to note.
There are other features like live broadcast that has been added in the camera app and another interesting feature that allows you to edit a PDF file – really helps when you receive a PDF and you need to sign it and send back, it’s piece of cake on the Note 5.
Note 5 is powered by Exynos octa core processor and its running Lollipop with 4GB RAM and optional 32 / 64 GB of internal storage. It’s a single SIM handset with 4G LTE support. There is 16MP camera on the rear and a 5MP on the front. This handset sports a 5.7 inch super AMOLED screen with Quad HD resolution. The 3000 mAh built in battery can be fully charged in 120 minutes using the wireless charger and in about 90 minutes using fast wall charger.
