Galaxy Note 5
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 as is an Android phablet smartphone developed and produced by Samsung Electronics. Unveiled on 13 August 2015, it is a successor to the Galaxy Note 4 as part of the Samsung Galaxy Note series. The Galaxy Note 5 carries over hardware and software features from the Galaxy S6, including a refreshed design with a glass backing and a spring-loaded stylus, improved camera and fingerprint scanner, built in livestreaming functionality, and additional features meant for use with the device's bundled stylus. The device was also released in a variation, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, which excludes the stylus and associated features, and includes a screen that is wrapped along the sides of the device. The Galaxy Note 5 received positive reviews from critics, who praised the device's upgraded build quality over prior models, along with improvements to its performance, camera, and other changes. Similarly to the S6, Samsung's decision to remove the ability to expand its storage or remove the battery was panned as being potentially alienating to power users—even moreso on the Note 5 due to how the series has historically been positioned.
