Prices vary by retailer and country; be sure to check current promotions before you buy. There's no denying that the Note 5 costs a lot, though it varies depending on where you live and where you buy it. Compared to other large-screen models, like the 5. Next 24 30 monthly payments: Next 18 24 monthly payments: Next 12 20 monthly payments: Lease program 24 months: Easy Pay 24 months: From what I can tell holding them side by side, the curves are the same. Checking out its profile, these comfortable rear arcs cause the Note 5's top and bottom edges to flare out thicker than its middle.
It'll still fill your hand -- this is a large device -- but the overall sensation is still of slimness, especially compared with the relatively bulky Note 4. That's good news for one-handed phone jockeys, who get the same screen real estate in a more streamlined package. The 2,x1,pixel resolution pixels per inch holds steady from last year, lending a lot of crisp detail to the screen, possibly even more than we strictly need. Below the display, the usual two soft keys recent apps and back sandwich the physical home button, which also serves as the phone's fingerprint reader and Google Now call-up press and hold for Google Now, the search giant's voice-command answer to Apple's Siri.
On the flipside, you'll see the megapixel camera lens, flash and heart rate reader. A unibody device, it has no removable backplate or battery and you won't find an expandable storage slot anywhere. Prepare for your smudgy fingerprints to bloom all over that mirrored surface, and keep a microfiber cloth nearby.
One last, infuriating thing I've noticed in all these years of testing: I keep hoping Samsung will work this out, but so far no dice. The Note S Pen stylus, which is made of polycarbonate plastic, changes a little bit every year. This time around, the stylus audibly clicks into place inside the Note 5's chute like the crown of a retractable pen.
It's kind of fun, but the fit is so snug, you have to really tease it out. The plastic pen has long, flat planes to keep it from rolling away on a tabletop. Its single button slightly recesses from the surface to tone down the mispresses, which I've found common in previous S Pen designs. That S Pen can only be inserted in the holder pointy end first. It is not meant to holster on the non-business end. If you try that, bad things will happen , as some users report when their S Pens got stuck with the square end wedged, possibly irretrievably, deep inside the phone.
The S Pen continues to act as a writing implement, pointer and navigational accomplice. You can use it to pull up a menu dialog box, or hover to pull up photo or video preview. It also works with those touch-sensitive menu buttons and the physical home button. Dragging and dropping text, and capturing the screen are two other tricks.
Now, however, with the release of preloaded phones such as the HTC One, Nexus 5, Samsung Galaxy S4 and iPhone 5S, you can merely buy. The Bottom Line Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 is excellent overall, and the only phone to buy if you want to write by hand. However, you'll pay a.
Samsung claims that its pen writes a lot better this time around, more fluidly, and with decreased latency times. I didn't notice that, even writing with the same pen and ink "weight" on the Note 5 and Note 4 side by side. I did notice that the 5's S Pen feels a touch lighter, which made for slightly cleaner, easier writing, compared with the Note 4's slightly heavier pen. My handwriting is still barely legible on both.
The S Note app itself is greatly simplified, with extra features tucked into the More menu. You can also download a ton more tools, like a chart helper and an extension pack that includes advanced tricks like a heartier toolbar and shape recognition, handwriting "transformation" and the ability to record sketches. In the app itself, you can customize everything from the way you select color to the way you save favorite combinations of pen tips and ink thickness.
The Good The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has an eye-catching design and high-end hardware, and it takes great outdoor photos. You can edit to reorder these. Discussion threads can be closed at any time at our discretion. It would be nice to have a simple process to get the Whatsapp messages, but I guess that this was as good as it gets. It'll still fill your hand -- this is a large device -- but the overall sensation is still of slimness, especially compared with the relatively bulky Note 4. Google recently released its Pixel phone.
As with previous versions, the pen stays sensitive along the corners of the page, and onscreen controls will momentarily disappear so you can continue to write and draw "below" them. Compared with 's Galaxy Note 4, the new Note 5 has some additional tricks up its sleeve. Called Air Command, this floating icon hangs out on any screen and opens up to reveal a circular menu of most frequently used apps -- say, the S Note app, the browser or your photo gallery. It's always on by default, but you can turn that off in Settings.
It runs on low power resources and doesn't affect the activity of the phone or other applications.

But you can hide it after you install the app, so there will be no traces left. I confess that there was a certain side of me that felt excited, although if I was to spy on my imaginary lover there would surely soon be no traces of the relationship left. Moreover, the legalities were still preying on my conscience. When I asked "But how can I do it without her knowing? Or maybe that was something for later in the discussion, when we got down to brass tacks.
Still curious, I wandered over to the mSpy legal agreement.
