Samsung Galaxy Note 5: Specs

It may have been superseded by the newer Samsung Galaxy Note 7, but 2015's Galaxy Note 5 still has a lot to offer the discerning smartphone owner. Powered by an octa-core Exynos processor and with a superb display that still outshines many newer flagship devices, the Note 5 brings versatility and functionality to the larger smartphone form factor. The hefty 3,000mAh battery will help the phone continue working through the day as well.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5: Buy outright

It's over 12 months old now, so the Galaxy Note 5's initially higher RRP has dropped significantly over time. It's no longer the flagship device of the Note range either, which means bargain hunters can potentially find the Note 5 at a discounted price if they shop around.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5: Review

While the Note 5 lacks expandable memory and had some issues with the S-Pen's insertion design, the simple fact is that the stunning screen and best in class battery life made it one of 2015's best smartphones.

"The larger size for the Note range has always meant that it offers solid day-long battery performance, and that continues with the Note 5, which beats out most of the class of 2015 thanks to its 3000maH battery. It can also charge extremely quickly with the supplied fast charger."

Given the Note 7 improves upon those issues, the Note 5 may be obsolete in the eyes of many, but it's still definitely worthy of consideration for bargain hunters needing a big-screened powerhouse of a smartphone.
