Samsung Galaxy Note 5 unboxing (Video)

By Hayato Huseman August 15, 2015, 10:40 pm

Since this past Thursday, Samsung has been the discussion centerpiece of the mobile tech world. At its Unpacked event in New York, we saw some elegant hardware within the Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Galaxy Note 5. Some say they might be too elegant to serve power users and too reliant on the Galaxy S6’s and Galaxy S6 Edge’s design languages. As you consider your buying options from the place you’re buying from this upcoming fall, should this phablet deserve a place on your list?

Well, consider this our official kickoff of the Pocketnow review period for the Note 5 as we see whether or not it lives up to Samsung’s proclaimed “Battery Leadership” with a sealed-in, smallish, but capably rechargeable battery. We’ll also see how the S Pen sports its new tricks and how much of what we know of the Galaxy Note series remains true today. Heck, is it worth it to get that weirdo-looking QWERTY keyboard cover? Is that what being a “power user” entails? For more on the hardware specifics, check out our hands-on video from the event.

But as always, we start off with the unboxing experience and what you’ll be looking forward to if and when you decide upon purchasing the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. You can leave any questions or feedback of what we’re covering on the Note 5 in the comments down below. We look forward to hearing from you and to getting in deep with this and the S6 edge+!

And be sure to tune into the Pocketnow Weekly for some deeper analysis of what we’re about to get into.
