The Galaxy Note 5 has been launched in India in two configurations. Samsung Note 5 Price in India for the 32GB variant is set at Rs. 53,900, while Samsung Galaxy Note 5 64GB price in India is Rs. 59,900. Do you think that the Samsung India sets the Samsung galaxy note 5 price is too high? Let's go through our review to answer that question.
In the first three generations, the build quality and materials were always a huge minus point of the Galaxy Note product line. Plastic material on the Galaxy Note 1-3 brings a cheap feeling for smartphones in the high-end segment.
From the Galaxy Note 4 onwards, Samsung brought up its product with an aluminum frame and a plastic back cover. It can be said that this is a perfect combination, bringing advantages from both materials: rugged, high-end and durable from the aluminum frame with very good quality and the excellent grip, anti-slip of the plastic back cover.
In this phone, Samsung decided to take one more step, bringing the metal and glass design to the entire body of the device to create a sense of luxury. However, what the Galaxy Note series needs is not to add a sense of luxury or a little weight to the device, what it needs the most is battery life.
The same screen size of 5.7 inches, but thanks to the thinner screen bezels, the width of Note 5 is 2.5mm smaller than Note 4. It may not sound like much, but the Note 5 actually feels a lot more comfortable to hold. Being curved at the two edges also makes the feeling of holding somewhat more comfortable.
Just like the Galaxy S6 launched earlier, the reflective coating under the glass of the Note 5 creates many eye-catching lighting effects. I spent half an hour just sitting around "fiddling with" the Note 5 under the light to see the color-changing effect of the coating. Interesting!
Overall, in my personal opinion, the Note 5 dual sim is the most eye-catching product of any smartphone ever made by Samsung (even when compared to the S6). Acceptable holding feeling is also a bright spot in the design of Note 5.
However, getting rid of removable battery design and the memory card slot are the two things that I don’t really like. Loyal users of the Note series will need a lot to consider when upgrading. If you upgrade from another Android device that doesn't have the ability to change batteries quickly (One M8 for example) then I think you won't bother too much.
Screen: Much better
The first thing to mention about the Note 5's screen is that the bezel is thinner, though not at the "edge to edge" like the S6 Edge but the feeling of the Note 5's screen is also very overwhelming and beautiful. The thin bezel makes the Note 5's screen fill almost the entire front of the device, bringing a much more modern, luxurious look to the handset.
Keeping the same size and resolution, the screen of Note 5 gives the image quality close to that of Note 4. The only difference is that it seems that the contrast and color saturation are slightly increased by Samsung making the images appear the display seems to be a bit better at the same brightness.
In short, the improvement on the screen of the Galaxy Note 5 compared to the previous generation, if any, are also very small, difficult to see with the naked eye.
Performance: Not bad
One of the most commendable changes of the handset, when compared to its predecessor, is the performance of the device.
I had previously thought that the Note 4's performance was more than enough, there was no need for too much improvement. Turns out I was wrong. Only 15 minutes of sitting on the line, the gap in the performance of the two devices was quite obvious. The boot time of the Note 5 camera is almost instantaneous, while Note 4 even after factory reset still takes a while.
Navigation in the Note 5 interface such as opening and closing the application tray, turning on and off connections, switching app windows, … are faster and smoother than the Note 4.
Although the difference isn't too big, it's still enough for me to feel uncomfortable when I switch back to the Note 4 after using the Note 5 for a while.
Due to the limited usage time, I have not been able to give a detailed review of the battery of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 dual sim. Please read on to follow the detailed review of the Samsung note 5 battery in another article.
S-Pen on Note 5 is also improved by Samsung, the ability to take notes without turning on the screen is also a plus point. Moreover, you won’t have to take the S-Pen by pulling it with the Note 5 as you only need to press the button.
On the other hand, one improvement that I warmly welcome on the phone is the improvement of the one-touch fingerprint sensor instead of the swipe sensor format as on Note 4. The accuracy and speed of the fingerprint sensor on Note 5 compared to Note 4 is really massively improved.
However, there is a confusing decision is Samsung silently removes the infrared sensor on Galaxy Note 5. Although very few people use this feature, if you like me, use it to control fans, TV, air conditioners,.., the removal of infrared is a huge step backward.
I can see a lot of new users will be attracted by the Note 5's sleek design, powerful configuration, and great camera quality. As mentioned, the Samsung Note 5 price in India is Rs. 53,900 for the base 32GB storage variant, while the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 price in India for the 64GB storage model is Rs. 59,900. Samsung Galaxy Note 5 dual SIM 64GB price in India is 51,400.
All in all, the Note 5 is a fairly complete and comprehensive product from Samsung, people who first come to Samsung in general and Galaxy Note, in particular, will definitely be satisfied with the phone. How about you? Do you think the Galaxy Note 5 is the one for you?
