An improved Air Command, new camera features, and a look that’s as premium as it gets. We get our hands on the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and slowly take you through what the device looks and feels like.
Taking a cue from the the Samsung Galaxy S6 released earlier in 2015, the Note 5 is also made with premium materials. Glass on its front and back with an aluminum frame. TouchWiz over Android Lollipop also got a slight makeover with square icons that have rounded edges – it’s a nice little touch and one we really liked.
The S-Pen also gets premium treatment not just in looks but also in functionality. Much improved is the Air Command feature that launches all the capabilities of the S-Pen. There are also a few new nifty camera features that we’re content creators on the web will love.
Don’t miss a thing. Make sure you watch our entire Note 5 hands-on above.
