Samsung Note 5 gets market attention with big screen advantage
Camera comparison: iPhone 6s Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
By turning big phones into a fad, there are exciting features, especially big screen advantage running on Samsung’s latest smartphones, the Note5 series.

(AP Photo/Manu Fernandez) Rumors about the Galaxy S7 have been circulating since Samsung’s current smartphone hit stores – if not earlier – and while most have been seemingly based on sheer conjecture or else not worth repeating, the latest offerings seem a bit more believable.Deep trench isolation, hybrid IR filter and five-element lens are just some fancy terms that Apple uses when talking about the cameras in the iPhone 6s Plus. Crafted with metal and glass, amped up specifications and a completely reworked design, the Galaxy Note 5 is arguably one of Samsung’s most successful innovations to date. While both these are large screen phones, the Galaxy S6 Edge+ is a higher end variant of the dual-edge display phone Samsung launched this year – the Galaxy S6 edge.
Korean news outlet ETNews is reporting that the new super smartphone will make its official debut in January – possibly the 19th – and that there should be both a “premium” and a “sub-premium” variant. And despite rather increased pressure from Android smartphones in terms of ever-increasing megapixels (though they don’t mean much in isolation), Apple’s philosophy has remained user experience and better image processing than simply increasing the megapixel count. SamMobile had previously reported that this dual dichotomy is going to be a follow-up to the S6 and S6 Edge; the SM-G930 being the standard-affair offering, and the SM-G935 featuring the OEM’s iconic curved display. Given Apple’s consistency with the cameras on the iPhones over the years, the new iPhone 6s models are also about technical robustness, optics technology as well as algorithms that work in the background. Also mentioned in today’s rumor report is a claim that “Project Lucky” will use an ePoP chip to integrate all the necessary sensor components on a single die, an engineering strategy employed by the S6 to help improve efficiency.
There may be several different processor variants depending on the market the S7 is sold in, and the flagship smartphone may use a pressure-sensitive display technology similar to what Apple has started marketing. Already, the big screen of the device is thrilling end users.The beautifully designed Note 5 flaunts a 5.7-inch screen with QHD super amoled display, allowing for clearer videos and images. Apple has decided to stick with aperture F2.2, while Samsung has moved to F1.9 for the Note 5—the lower the “f” number, the larger the lens opening and the greater the amount of light that can reach the image sensor.
The phone exudes elegance thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass 4 back panel complemented by the dual-edge curved display up front which also has the Gorilla Glass 4 protection. Emails can now be penned quickly and if you are a social media fan, editing and cropping photos and videos just got a lot easier with its Video Collage feature. The little wave of shortcut buttons, which appear on the screen when the stylus is popped out, can easily be customized and the device will send an alert whenever the stylus is not in its holster. With the Instant Memo feature, users do not need to unlock the device, launch a memo app and create a new memo before jotting down; simply pop out the pen and start writing.
However, there is a very annoying vertical streak of light on the left side of the iPhone’s panorama, which was caused by the angle with the sun’s rays, and is a freak occurrence. With an octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, and a non-removable 3,000mAh battery pack, this is definitely one of the most powerful large screen devices available in the market. Also, the iPhone reproduces more even colours, while the Note 5 seems slightly put off by the reflection from the cutlery, and ends up with an over-exposed photo. On the connectivity front, you have a single nano SIM card slot which can take in 4G LTE cards, there’s Wi-fi 802.11ac, Wi-fi Direct, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS with GLONASS, NFC and it also supports Wireless charging.
It’s certainly not the quickest scanner around and on occasions when your fingers are moist, it will require at least three tries before you can pass through. Apart from this, you have the standard set of Samsung’s proprietary apps such as Smart Manager, S Health, Voice recorder (which has an Interview mode along with a standard mode), S Voice, SideSync for phone mirroring, Galaxy Apps store and so on. Samsung’s Exynos 7420 chipset, based on a 14nm manufacturing process, paired with 4GB RAM has proved that it can hold its own against Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 810 SoC. We were just annoyed when we had to swipe right to get to the home screens from the Flipboard app (which is the left most home screen) – the swiping isn’t as speedy and on most occasions we ended up pulling up the edge-screen.
The camera user interface is a bit advanced than other smartphone cameras that we have seen offlate, but within a couple of hours you should get used to it. Overall, we were impressed with the battery performance and you can extend it further by activating Power saving and Ultra Power saving modes as well.
