The Samsung Galaxy Note5 sets a new benchmark on what a productivity smart phone should be. In its 5th generation, it gets the best in class hardware that’s encased in a premium metal and glass body. The physical hardware isn’t the only improvement here as Samsung has packed more features to empower you to do more with its improved S Pen.
If you’re still thinking whether to upgrade, head after the break for 10 reasons why.
1. Screen Off memo
Great ideas come in a flash and you need to jot it down in an instant. With the Galaxy Note5, you can start writing or drawing immediately. There’s no need to launch any apps, just eject the S Pen and you can jot down your thoughts on a blank screen.
2. Customisable Air Command
Now you can keep your favourite apps closer to your fingertips. The floating Air Command for the S Pen now lets you add 3 shortcuts to your frequently used apps. So whichever screen you’re on, you can edit and share instantly.
3. Scroll Capture
A picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes a single screenshot isn’t enough. On the Galaxy Note5, you can perform a scroll capture. Just start a screen write with the S Pen, and hit scroll capture to add additional pages to your screenshot. This makes it perfect to share a long web page or a chat conversation up to 22 pages in a single image.
4. 5.7” Quad HD Super AMOLED
If you want a great display, it can’t get better than this. The Galaxy Note5 gets a large 5.7” screen that pushes Quad HD 2560×1440 pixels resolution. That’s 4x more than the standard HD 720p resolution. Using a Super AMOLED screen, text is much sharper and colours are more vibrant for a more immersive viewing experience.
5. Handwriting to Text in Any Language
Writing your notes by hand feels natural and the Galaxy Note5 is able to transform your handwriting to text seamlessly. With the S-Note app, you can jot down your words in any language including Chinese and then transform it to text, based on your keyboard input settings.
The Galaxy Note5 is also smart enough to transform math formulas and even shapes to editable digital formats. All these are made possible with the Extension Pack which can be downloaded for free on the Galaxy Note5.
6. Better Cameras
The Galaxy S6 is already an incredible device for capturing photos and the Galaxy Note5 is no exception. Carrying the same proven 16MP f/1.9 main camera with Optical Image Stabilisation, the Galaxy Note5 is always ready to take the shot in any situation. Whether you’re traveling or at a concert, you can always count on the Galaxy Note5 for excellent pictures even in low light. To capture moments in high definition, you can shoot videos up to 4K UHD. So that you won’t miss a moment, you can always launch the camera app from sleep by pressing the home key twice.
Selfie lovers would also appreciate its 5MP f/1.9 wide angle front camera. It lets you take perfect selfies all the time with built-in beautification features. Need a group shot? Forget selfie-sticks and nobody will be left behind using its easy to use wide-selfie mode.
7. Share your moments Live
Sharing your moments on social media is fast but now you can share it live as it happens. Instead of shooting a video, you can also start a Live Broadcast directly onto YouTube. If it is a private event, not to worry as you get to invite who to watch your video broadcast that’s streamed up to Full HD resolution. Your friends can watch it live on their smart phones, tablets and even on desktop computers.
8. Faster Processor with 4GB of RAM
The Galaxy Note5 is all about productivity and it runs on a top of the line Exynos 64-bit Octa-Core processor that’s both powerful and energy efficient. To multi-task like a pro, it packs 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM allowing you to run multiple apps simultaneously.
9. Dual-SIM with 4G LTE
Whether you carry 2 mobile numbers or if you travel a lot, you can enjoy greater flexibility with its dual-SIM slots. Now you can juggle between home and work numbers or have the ability to pop in a local SIM card when you travel, saving you substantially on data roaming cost. Managing between two numbers is easy and you can even set your preferred SIM for Data, Voice and SMS.
In terms of connectivity, the Galaxy Note5 has no compromises with both slots supporting 4G with faster LTE-A standards.
10. Fast Charging. Cabled or wireless
After a long day of work, keeping your Galaxy Note5 charged is quicker than ever. With adaptive fast charge, its 3,000mAh battery is juiced up from 0-100% in just 90 minutes. For greater convenience, it also supports Fast Wireless Charge that does 0-100% in just 120 minutes. That’s 1.4x faster than conventional wireless chargers.
