Analysis: This year Samsung brought its new device with all new metal and glass design which seems pretty slim, beautiful and solid. The curved design on back of Note 5 makes it easier to handle even with its big size. The new shape is carved so great that the old Note 4 appeared smaller. The Camera has been improved a little bit with rear but with the front one the camera got a huge jump with 5 MP wide angle selfie camera. The internal memory option also increased to the 64 GB, 32 GB is also available. The most fascinating thing is first time we got to see 4GB DDR4 RAM on a phone so now we believe 64 bit OS will show some real power with this. The new Video collage mode in camera, extended screenshot function and new upgrades with Stylus or S pen some great new features. The fast charging have been further improved with fast wireless charging also.

The battery has been decreased 220 mAh which is now 3000 mAh only, this might be for the thin size. Just like S6 there will be non removable back, battery and no external storage or SD card support. Most people complained about this and they said they won’t be upgrading due to this. The non removable back for solid build and glassy metal finish is understandable but external SD card is killing the people’s need here. The improvement in the display is just negligible with only increase in 3 ppi. The phone is big and a lot slippery by the way due to the glass. It seems a bit risky game. The phone is astoundingly beautiful with the metal and glass finish but if it drops the crack and scratch will make it look bad.

The phone is great with all upgraded UX,UI and 4GB RAM. The lower battery may give a bit less time for play time but the power saving modes and the software will mitigate this. The camera and Super AMOLED display of Samsung is undoubtedly the best as always. We loved the device but missed the things like SD card support and removable battery. Should you choose to buy it? The choice is always yours. Tell us what you think in the comments below.
