The Galaxy Note 5 is testimony that big screen doesn’t always result in a heavy phone. In spite of the 5.7-inch display, the phone weighs 171g and is only 7.6mm thick. The AMOLED display offers a resolution of 2560x1440p, which looks better than its predecessor as colour brightness has been toned down a bit to give a more natural look. It also comes with a layer of Gorilla Glass 4. The S-Pen stylus is a lot more useful than it used to be, which enhances it useability for designers and professionals on the move. The phone runs Android 5.1 with an improved and less cluttered TouchWiz interface. The Indian version runs on Exynos octa-core processor with 4GB RAM and is powerful enough to run most tasks smoothly and without any heating up. The 3,000mAh battery can give a day’s backup at most if not stressed too much.
