In this comparison, we will be comparing the Huawei Mate 8 versus the Galaxy Note 5 cameras. Since Galaxy Note 5 is one of the best cameras on a smartphone, I thought this would be a good test. For test location, I chose my local beach near sunset since low light is where you can really tell the difference between cameras.
In this HighOnAndroid SOT (Screen-On-Time) Battery Test, we take the Galaxy Note 5 against the LG V10 and Nexus 6P.
In this EXTREME low-light test, we take the Galaxy Note 5 and LG V10 to low-light extremities.
LG V10 has been announced and is it better than the Galaxy Note 5? Let’s find out!
First, LG V10 and Note 5 both have 1440P screens. While the LG V10 has IPS LCD, the Note 5 has AMOLED screen. Of course, don’t forget LG V10 comes with a secondary screen on top of the phone while the Note 5 comes with a pressure-sensitive screen that allows for super accurate writing/drawing with its S-Pen. In terms of what you get, notifications/shortcuts versus life-like notebook, the Note 5 certainly wins in the display category nevermind AMOLED screens are about 20-30% brighter than IPS LCD.
Can’t decide between Nexus 6P or Note 5? Let us help you look into details of the differences between the two.
For those of you who want to take advantage of Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge Plus new “fast” wireless charging feature, you will need to get a Fast Charge Wireless Charger. Now, you will also need to pair it with a fast charge adapter (9V 1.65A) otherwise it won’t actually fast charge wirelessly. Also, this charge is backward-compatible with normal wireless charging and will auto-switch if you are using a smartphone that doesn’t support fast wireless charging (like Galaxy S6).
4 years ago, Samsung launched the first big smartphone with its first Galaxy Note Android smartphone. At the time, no one knew that phablets like the Galaxy Note would become popular. In fact, most media outlets called it a ridiculously large phone that’s not going to fit in your pocket. Well, fast forward to 2015 and everyone is using a large phone these days. Even Apple introduced their iPhone 6 Plus to satisfy the people’s urge to use large smartphones. Phablets are like the SUVs of cars and if you want the best SUV, the Galaxy Note 5 is really the best you can buy right now.
So, I took my Galaxy Note 5 and my new Edelkrone Slider Plus to test out the full 4K abilities of my new phone. Overall, I am pretty satisfied but there are moments where the Note 5’s auto mode changed the exposure during sliding shots. I feel like there should be manual control to the video recording mode, which could give the camera much more control and end up with better quality videos.
For those of you who have broken your S-Pen detection sensor, perhaps because you yanked your S-Pen out while stuck or didn’t use a straw, plastic film, or piece of paper, you may want to replace the S-Pen detection sensor.
If you’ve accidentally put your S-pen backwards, you will have a problem where your S-Pen gets stuck. Now, there’s a way to fix this so just don’t try to yank it out as that will break your S-Pen detection sensor.
I finally got my hands on the Galaxy Note 5 and while unboxing it, I was testing out the S-Pen which got stuck.
