Both phones boast wider screens and more processing power than the Note 4 and Note 4 Edge without making the actual phone any bigger. These new smartphones will be available in the United States on August 21.
We’ve combed through all the boring details and have listed the top 10 things you need to know about Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Ede+
Galaxy Note 5
1. Price. The 32 GB version with a two-year AT&T or Sprint contract will set you back $250. The 64 GB version will cost $350 with contract. Expect to pay $750 or $850
2. Better camera. Let’s face it, people love taking pictures with their smartphones more than ever – especially when it comes to taking selfies. With narcissism in mind, Samsung has beefed-up their selfie camera to 5 megapixels. If you shoot video it can be viewed on a 4K HDTV. If you’re into streaming live video on popular aps such as Periscope and Meerkat, you’ll be happy to know the Note 5 has a new feature that allows full HD broadcasting. You can stream directly to YouTube or privately.
3. Better pen. Here’s a neat feature. The Note’s “S Pen” will allow you to write things when the screen is off.
4. Size. The Galaxy Note 5 is six-inches long three inches wide and 0.3 in thick.
5. Battery life. There are no upgrades here but you may want to know the battery in the Note 5 is smaller and is 3000 mAh, compared to its predecessor, the Note 4 at 3220 mAh.
