Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Video Hands-on!

Here’s our video hands-on of the Galaxy Note 5!

A few days ago we gave you our thoughts on the Galaxy Note 5 as it was announced by Samsung, and today we’ll be giving you a short video overview of the Note 5, and what we think of it. To say that there’s a lot riding on the Note 5 is an understatement of the year – Samsung needs to turn things around after the less than stellar peformance of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, and they’re looking at the Note 5 (and the S6 Edge+) to do that.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 specs

  • Exynos 7420 octa-core processor
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, 2560 x 1440 resolution

The video is a little long, so please bear with us, but we dive into a lot of things and voice out our opinion on Samsung’s decision to remove microSD cards and re-use the S6 Edge’s hardware. Check out the video above!

  1. Pag di sila naglabas ng ibang phone sa CES nila sa September, ito na magiging next phone ko, mejo dissapointed ako dahil walang IR pero tingin okay na din. Honestly wala di na ako naglalagay ng sd card sa phone ko nasa external hard drive naman mga files and movies ko na malalaki I think mas okay na andun sila kesa nasa SD.. Tingin ko lang naman..

  2. Few things I like to comment about the video, Benchmark for s6/s6 edge are 70,000+ so note 5 are relatively lower at the moment. It is expensive but Note 3 and Note 4 was released in the Philippines at the same price 36,990 for 32gb. Main reason for the lack of card slot is the memory chip in the device which at the moment is way much faster than any other existing in smartphones unfortunately this memory chip cannot support memory cards, so you either get slower memory chip with card support or faster without card. For the type C USB, That would be lovely, but I don’t think accessories for type C USB cables are commonly available at the moment so I would still prefer the micro USB 2 at the moment. I just hope Samsung release a 64gb version for Philippines, I would definitely get that.
