The brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was recently announced and has brought with it some great new features that will make all other phablets turn and look at the King of the Phablet once again. The Note series, for a long time now, has set the benchmark for certainly phablets and often set the benchmark for battery life, power, screens and cameras too. It’s usually a phone that comes at a premium price and, as a result, you get a premium phone with plenty of powerful features.
Along with the impressive hardware specifications, you also usually get some really nice features exclusive to the Note. For example, multi-window view and the ability to use the S-Pen to write on screenshots and such. We’ve decided to list the 5 best features from the new Galaxy Note 5 that will have all other phablets and phones shivering in their boots.
1. An All-New Premium Design
In previous years, the Note series’ biggest fault was the fact that it was made of cheap plastics that made the expensive phone feel rather light and pathetic in the hands. Samsung recently introduced a far more premium metal and glass design on the S6 and S6 Edge and have gone down the same route with the Note 5. On top of this, the phone may have the biggest screen in 5.7″ in the Note series yet but it has the slimmest and lightest profile of any to come before it. This will surely be a bonus for the Note fans who regularly update with the next iteration. A phone that now not only feels slimmer and lighter but is also made of far more premium materials is likely to be a huge bonus.
2. Simply Stunning Display
One of the highlight features of the Note series has always been the simply stunning display that Samsung has packed onto the device. With Samsung’s SuperAmoLED technology progressing further and further, there’s no doubt it is now one of the leading displays in mobile. The display promises incredible contrast The Note 5 offers up a QHD 2560×1440 pixel resolution, resulting in some ultra-sharp visual quality. There’s no doubt that the Note series has set benchmarks in screen technology in previous years and it looks like Samsung are looking to do so again with the Note 5!
3. Better Battery Life Than Most
Another thing that the Note series has always been lauded for is it’s brilliant battery life. The previous Note 4 let down the side a little bit by offering a more normal 10 hours of battery life but it looks like Samsung have sorted that out in this Note. To compensate for the new power, the Note 5 has a 3,000mAh battery along with a new processor that amazon says is far more efficient. On top of this, the device supports an automatic power saver feature when the battery gets down to a certain level… or you can turn it on whenever you like.
4. Huge Processing Power
The Note series originally struggled trying to power such a huge high-resolution screen, however over the past few years Samsung have thrown more power into the device that any other device on the market. In terms of specs, the Note 5 has a 64-bit octa core processor running in the background. Along with that the Note 5 has 4GB RAM. That’s the same amount of RAM that most computers come with these days. That’s a whole lot of power in such a small device. Therefore, it results is some truly solid performance and graphical power allowing the device to scream through almost any task and game thrown at it.
5. Enhanced Phablet Features
Finally, the Note series has usually separated itself from other phablets by offering up some great features that truly take advantage of the enormous display you’ll be working with. For example, the Note series has offered up multi-windows support allowing you to look at multiple apps at the same time.
The S-Pen especially this year has been improved quite a bit. The accuracy and speed is being forever improved and now is supposed to feel as close to writing with a real pen than ever before. On top of that, one of the coolest features we’ve ever seen is the ability to quickly jot something on the turned off screen by simply clicking the button on the stylus and begin writing away. The off screen will show you what you’re typing and will save that Note to your notepad. This will save you having to turn on your screen, unlock the phone and then opening the jotting app just to take quickly down someone’s number, or address or whatever.
