The Samsung Galaxy Note line, once thought of as a very obscure lineup has become one of Samsung’s most successful inventions with them unveiling the fifth iteration of the phone in September of last year.

Five months into the phone’s launch, the Note 5 is by no means a slouch. It packs some top internal hardware such as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM to power Android Lollipop and Touchwiz UI without any hiccups on that ultra sharp 5.5″ QHD Super AMOLED display, encased in some very premium build materials and one of the best 16/5 MP camera units out there — and let’s not forget that weirdly satisfying click the S-Pen has.

The device might not receive updates to more recent Android versions in the most timely manner, but it certainly does receive smaller more incremental updates improving certain aspects of the phone including battery life which keeps the phone feeling fresh.

As said by Kevin in the video above, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 remains one of the best Android offerings out there and by picking one up at this moment, you’d be making no mistake.
