Today we present you the 5 hits and miss in the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 in the below sliders:
QHD resolution, AMOLED display
Samsung's new generation Galaxy Note flaunts a 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display which gives a massive screen with such a higher pixel resolution that should be a visual delight and offer an awesome experience.
Get rid of wires
One of the key attractions of the Samsung Galaxy S6 was its fast wireless charging feature. Samsung ensured that even the Note 5 users don't miss on the wireless charging feature, and brings to the newbie. All you have to do it to place your phone on the charging plate, without having to worry about the ever tangling wires.
S-pen to do more
The S pen has always been a part of the Note series. This time as well, Samsung offers the Stylus's goodness with compatible software features. You can use the stylus for taking notes, editing, doodling and more.
Making Payments becomes easy
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 comes pre-loaded with the company's Pay service, which is the company's take on its arch rival's Apple Pay service. Samsung Pay is here for easing out the process of making payments for purchases.
Premium look and feel
The all Samsung Galaxy Note 5 comes in a design that combines the glass and metal body to give it a premium look and feel. You may notice the striking resemblance in the Note's design with the previously launched, Samsung Galaxy S6, but it does work for the newbie.
It's disappointing to see that Samsung has attached the battery to the Galaxy Note 5, while removable battery was one of the key features of its Note line-up. Since the battery cannot be removed, it becomes difficult for changing the battery in case of damage, or putting in a spare battery in times of need. You will have to keep a charger or battery power bank handy!
No MicroSD card slot:
Apart from a non-removable battery, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 also looses out on microSD card slot. We wonder why did Samsung removed slot for a microSD card?
Prone to Water-related damages:
While most of the brands these days are working towards bringing water resistance in their devices, especially premium ones, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 misses on this feature as well.
An Infrared ray blaster is quite handy when it comes to operating other devices, right with your phone. Sadly, the Galaxy Note 5 does not come with an IR baster.
USB Type-C connectivity
After Apple introduced the USB Type-C connectivity on its new generation MacBook the connectivity port has been gaining popularity amongst smartphone makers. Recently Oneplus also launched the 2 with USB Type-C connectivity, which essentially is considered good because it is reversible. Samsung, however, gave this a miss in the Galaxy Note 5.
