The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 isn't just any smartphone, it's a phablet smartphone. It's got the phablet moniker because of its large size that's almost borderline tablet size. The Galaxy Note 5 is not just any phablet smartphone however, it's the phablet smartphone that made everyone realize what a true phablet is.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has a larger HD Super AMOLED 5.7 inch display which looks gorgeous no matter from which angle you're looking at. The large screen is also incredibly sharp due to the Quad HD (2K) resolution, which results in 518 pixels per inch on the screen. With Samsung's multi-window apps, users can maximize the screen size by running applications side by side – you can finally text and watch videos at the same time!
The S-Pen is even better on the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 – it now clicks like a real pen! The S-Pen now sits flush against the frame of the smartphone, and to access it all you'll have to do is push in and click. Samsung's convenient Air Command is immediately accessible when the S-Pen is retracted from the smartphone, allowing you quick access to taking notes and more.
Write with the S-Pen feels incredibly much like a real pen, it's fluid and so responsive that you'll forget you're writing on a touchscreen. Pen your notes and sketch the next masterpiece like the older times, but on a whole new futuristic platform.
Say goodbye to the conventional charging method with cables and wires, and say hello to wireless charging. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 can charge wirelessly with the wireless charging dock. Unlike other wireless chargers however, the one with the Galaxy Note 5 is fast, being able to be fully charged in 120 minutes. The only cable you'll have to plug in is the one you'll have to plug into the wireless dock.
The Galaxy Note 5 captures amazing photographs with its 16 megapixel camera. It captures all of the natural light and appears really sharp and rich. It's also amazingly fast, it takes only a split second to turn on the camera and snap a picture of the action: Just press the Home button twice in any app or any screen and you're in the camera.
