Review: Samsung Galaxy Note 5 for Verizon Wireless

Hardware Software Wrap-up Comments  2  

The Note 5 is one of those phones that puts its money where its mouth is; it delivers the goods. Samsung did a great job in designing and building a high-end smartphone that performs well in nearly every way.

The hardware is fantastic, the display is incredible, the wireless performance is top-notch, and the battery life is good enough. I'd prefer if Samsung meddled less with the Android software, but it's nice that you can take control of the home screen experience via themes and other customization tools. I was pleased with the camera, which delivers consistently good results. The S Pen software adds some functionality that few other phones have. Everything on the phone runs quickly and smoothly. My most serious complaint about the Note 5 is the so-so call quality (but who talks on their phones anymore?) Some may be put off by the lack of removable battery and memory card, although these limitations don't bother me, personally.

If you want the best phablet you can buy, the Galaxy Note 5 should be at the top of your shopping list.
