Samsung Galaxy Note 5

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is the 5.7-inch smartphone successor to the Note 4, arguably one of the standout phones of 2014. So it's somewhat surprising that Samsung has taken the decision not to bring its new phablet to the UK.

Sleek, glass design ; Speedy overall performance ; Great camera ; Slimmer design makes it easier to hold in one hand

S Pen experience not radically improved ; Smaller battery ; No micro SD card support or removable battery

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review

 

Samsung's new flagship phablet is here, and we're big fans

Great screen ; Great camera ; Great design

Non-expandable memory ; Not available everywhere (yet)

Stylus plus style is a great combo. Better than ever

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 hands-on: Classy evolution but no UK launch currently planned

 

We have to admit, our mouths gaped open when we were told that Samsung has strategically decided to not launch the Galaxy Note 5 in the UK. Instead, it will initially only be available in North America and select Asian markets.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review

 

Note 5 puts the phab in phablet with a stylus and stylish makeover

Slick glass-backed design ; Record-break specs ; Stunning camera quality ; Handy S Pen stylus

Expensive ; No microSD card slot ; No removable battery ; Limited to a few countries

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 requires two hands and a pile of cash, but it's the best Android phone with a large screen, a stylus and an accurate camera. Just don't look for it to have a microSD card, removable battery – or availability outside the US.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review: A Galaxy S6 Edge+ variant with a stylus

 

A beautiful screen and excellent performance, but the Note 5 is trickier to hold than its curved edge sibling

The Note 5 has so much in common with the Galaxy S6 Edge+, which I think is much more comfortable and easy to hold, the Note 5 doesn’t immediately make me feel like I'm missing out on much. The S-Pen obviously makes it quite different from other...

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Review: Hands-on

 

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 Hands-On Review @ IFA 2015: IFA gave us the opportunity to go hands-on with Samsung's biggest and brightest handset yet.

Stunning design ; Killer screen ; Excellent camera

Expensive ; Unconfirmed for the UK ; Fingerprint magnet

There’s a lot to love about the new Samsung Galaxy Note 5, primarily thanks to its killer hardware, beautiful design and unique feature set, but locking away the battery and storage will sting many long-time Note fans..

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review: Pen-friendly superphone packs big screen -- and big price

 

The Note 5 boasts a redesigned stylus and a giant screen -- and a price tag to match. It has a few flaws, and this modest upgrade of last year's Note will feel the heat from a growing battalion of cheaper competitors.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has an eye-catching design and high-end hardware, and it takes great outdoor photos. Using the stylus has never felt better and battery life is terrific.

With a nonremovable battery and no external storage option, the Note 5 strips away some of last year's features. It's pricey compared with large-screen competitors like Motorola's Moto X Pure.

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 huge premium for a modest upgrade from last year's model, and less pricey competitors will satisfy many.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review – hands on

 

It's not coming to the UK at the moment, but here's a look at what you'll miss with the Note 5

It’s hard to say much about a handset that, currently, isn’t going to come to the UK. To my mind, it’s a shame, as the Note 5 is something quite different to other smartphones. Its S-Pen gives you a different way of interacting with the handset and...
