Using the Galaxy Note 5 was a great experience and I really appreciated the chance to check it out from AT&T Mobile. I really enjoyed living with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. This was by far the best Samsung phone I have gotten the chance to use.
- Big beautiful screen
- Finger print reader
- Excellent battery life
- Stylus brakes if inserted backward.
- A lot of bloatware
The Android Dad Review
Check out the Size of the Note 5
The device size was perfect for me. I like the larger screen size of many new phones but often find them a little too big for one handed use. This was not the case at all with the Note 5.
Great Screen & Great Battery Life
The battery life was excellent, I was able to make it through the entire day without having to charge. The screen was beautiful, but did not completely kill the battery life.
Login with One Touch
I also loved the experience with the fingerprint reader. It was so nice not to have to be able to log in with just a touch.
There will be Bloatware
On the down side the device came with a lot of pre-installed apps from Samsung and AT&T that I had no reason to use, they just decreased the available storage as far as I was concerned.
Be Careful with the Stylus
There is also a known problem with the stylus for the Note 5. If it is inserted into the phone backward it will break a part of the mechanism and some of the functionality will be lost. Samsung has reportedly repaired this in upcoming models of the Note 5 but it is something to be aware of.
The Note 5 earns a solid four stars. Overall I absolutely loved this phone and would highly recommend it to anyone that likes the larger form factor.
