Finally, the wait is over and we have the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 here in our hands. The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is the 2015 flagship of the Samsung Galaxy Note series, and also the successor to last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
If you are planning to get yourself a Samsung Galaxy Note device in 2014 after you sell cell phone, which one should you go with, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 of last year, or the current generation Samsung Galaxy Note 5? That is what we are going to help you decide with this detailed comparison today.
We always have complained about Samsung Smartphones for its cheap feeling plastic built. However, this year we saw Samsung moving towards a much premium feeling glass and metal sandwich built with their Samsung Galaxy S6 Android Smartphone.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 too adopts this design aspect, as is also basically a combination between metal and glass. It obviously looks and feels much more premium than the previous generation’s plastic built Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 had a 5.7 inch QHD display with a screen resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, whereas the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has a bit smaller 5.67 inch QHD display of the same screen resolution. The PPI density of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is also not too high when compared to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, 518 PPI compared to 515 PPI respectively.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 came in two variants, either a 1.9 GHz Exynos variant or the 2.7 GHz Snapdragin 805 variant. Both of these were fast enough at the time of launch, and is still fast enough when compared to many Smartphones of today’s times.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 just comes in one processor variant as compared to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and is powered by a 2.1 GHz Exynos octa core chipset. The Galaxy Note 5 also has 4 GB of RAM, an increase of 1 GB as compared to its predecessor.
Both the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note 5 has 16 MP primary camera sensors. However, the secondary camera has seen a bump from 3.7 MP in the Note 4 to 5 MP in the Galaxy Note 5. Moreover, the primary camera sensor on the Galaxy Note 5 has a F1.9 aperture as opposed to the F2.2 aperture sensor fitted in the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
The camera interface of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is more cleaned up and so is the rest of the TouchWiz UI, pretty much similar to what we have seen with the Samsung Galaxy S6. The Auto and Pro mode that comes with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, along with the improved camera sensors makes sure that you get a better and more immersive shooting experience with the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 than the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 5, however, features a smaller battery as compared to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Where the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 had a 3,220 mAh battery, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has a 3,000 mAh battery.
Even though, on paper the battery may seem like have got a downgrade, the real life performance ensures that you get comparable battery performance, if not better, from the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, when compared to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
