Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review

 

The Galaxy Note 5 is still one of the best phablets you can buy.

Samsung is still the king of phablets, but the gap is closing. When it comes to value for money, the and the are tempting alternatives. The S Pen is the Note 5’s killer feature, and the main thing that sets it apart from other big phones like the or...

Samsung Galaxy Note5 review: Time-saver edition

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note5 is the latest in the line that introduced us to the concept of a phablet in the first place. Following the Galaxy S-line's adoption of glass and metal, Samsung's taken the premium build to the Note series.

Premium design, supreme build ; Beautiful 5.7-inch AMOLED display ; Powerful chipset, S-Pen ; Impressive camera output both stills and video ; Excellent battery life, fast charging, both wired and wireless

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review: the best big phone just got better

 

Samsung's Galaxy Note series has never been for everyone, but the Note 5 just might change some minds. It's the smallest, most comfortable version of the phablet to date, and thoughtful software tweaks make the S Pen feel way less gimmicky. A great...

Amazing screen ; Top-tier performance ; Much-improved S Pen experience ; Greatcamera

Grabbing the S Pen takes an extra step ; Some will miss the microSD slot ; Far pricier than similar phones

Samsung has another world-class performer in the Note 5, and unlike its cousin, the S6 Edge+, it has more going for it than just looks. The Note still can't completely mimic the feel of pen and paper, but it's getting closer than you might expect....

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review: Pen-friendly superphone packs big screen -- and big price

 

The Note 5 boasts a redesigned stylus and a giant screen -- and a price tag to match. It has a few flaws, and this modest upgrade of last year's Note will feel the heat from a growing battalion of cheaper competitors.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has an eye-catching design and high-end hardware, and it takes great outdoor photos. Using the stylus has never felt better and battery life is terrific.

With a nonremovable battery and no external storage option, the Note 5 strips away some of last year's features. It's pricey compared with large-screen competitors like Motorola's Moto X Pure.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 is excellent overall, and the only phone to buy if you want to write by hand. However, you'll pay a huge premium for a modest upgrade from last year's model, and less pricey competitors will satisfy many.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 (AT&T)

 

As long as price is no object, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is the most powerful phablet you can buy on AT&T.

Fast processor. Excellent camera. Top-notch reception. S Pen functionality.

Expensive. No removable battery or memory.

Pricing, Competition, and Conclusions At $739, the AT&T Galaxy Note 5 is one of the most expensive phablets the carrier has to offer, coming in below only the $749 iPhone 6 Plus and the $814 Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ . For the price, you get the fastest...

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is the most powerful phablet available on Verizon, but you'll pay a heavy price for it.

Fast processor. Excellent camera. Top-notch reception. S Pen functionality.

Expensive. Verizon model lacks Samsung Pay. No removable battery or memory.

Pricing, Competition, and Conclusions Verizon recently killed off subsidies , making everyone pay full price for their devices. That means the $696 Galaxy Note 5, the $768 Galaxy S6 edge+, and the $749 iPhone 6 Plus have a lot to prove when faced with...

Galaxy Note 5 review: Continuing Samsung's reign as the King of Phablets

 

Seriously, we didn't think that the Note series could get any better, but it did. This phone-tablet puts even the smaller Galaxy S6 to shame.

Long-lasting battery life ; Precise S Pen with accompany productivity apps ; Bright, beautiful QuadHD display

TouchWiz makes Android look a little garish and comes with apps you can't delete

The Note 5 boasts a beautiful screen, powerful innards, and suite of helpful productivity apps to accompany the S Pen. If you haven’t considered a mega-sized Android phone until now, the Galaxy Note 5 is...

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review

 

Samsung's Note line of phones has always been about three things: a huge screen, outsized performance, and a stylus. But now, with the Galaxy Note 5, two of those three things aren't so special...

Amazing screen ; Stylus getting more useful ; Great performance

Can't replace battery ; No 128GB option and no microSD expansion ; Expensive

Samsung Galaxy Note 5

 

The Galaxy Note 5 packs incredible processing power and puts it behind the best display you can get. But this iteration of Samsung's top phablet comes with compromises.

Best phone screen available. Octo-core Samsung Exynos 7420 processor. Excellent battery life. S Pen is still unique among phablets.

Battery is not removable. No card slot for storage expansion. Some gimmicky features.

Comparisons and Conclusions The new Huawei Nexus phablet may be released in the next two weeks. We're thinking the Apple iPhone 6s Plus (or equivalent) will be announced on September 9 . I'm not willing to declare which phablet is best until I've...
