For those of you who want to keep enjoying the Galaxy Note 7 but failed to because Samsung has recalled them, you can still enjoy every software feature of the Galaxy Note 7 by converting a Note 5 into Galaxy Note 7 by installing a custom ROM. I know many people still want to keep using a 5.7-inch Samsung device and the Galaxy Note 5 is still a great candidate with an S-Pen and camera that still beats many of new smartphones that came out this year. Best of all, you will be able to enjoy all Note 7’s S-Pen features including animated GIFs using Smart Select, off-screen memos, and even full Note 7 camera app (everything works except panorama). And yes, even AOD(Always-On-Display) works!

In this review of LG V20, we will be comparing its core features against other flagships like the Pixel XL, S7 Edge, Nexus 6P, and Note 5.
First, LG V20 is a 5.7-inch phablet smartphone with 1440P IPS LCD w/ secondary screen, 2 back cameras (One F1.8 16MP and One 8MP F2.4 wide-angle), 1 front wide-angle camera (that also crops in), Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, removable back cover (made from aircraft-grade aluminum), 3200mAh removable battery, IR blaster, micro-SD card slot, and an active noise-cancellation microphone.

For those of you who want to turn your Galaxy S4/S5/S6/S7/S7 Edge, Note 3/4/5 into a full-fledged Galaxy S7 Edge Batman Injustice Edition, now you can with the official Injustice Edition Samsung theme and any custom ROM that supports Samsung’s new theme UI.
This method is ONLY for rooted users, if you don’t have a rooted phone, please follow this method instead.
In this camera comparison, we take the Zenfone Zoom against current king of smartphone cameras, the Galaxy Note 5.
For back camera, the Zenfone Zoom actually faired pretty good against the Note 5, most photos taken did good in auto and HDR mode although details and sharpness was not as good as the Note 5.
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.
With this test, we set the brightness of all the phones to the same brightness using LUX light meter (set to 300). Then we put all the phones in airplane mode with all the phones on same WiFi network.
In this EXTREME low-light test, we take the Galaxy Note 5 and LG V10 to low-light extremities.
What I learned from this test?
In auto mode, the Galaxy Note 5 does an excellent job of setting the correct ISO, white balance, and shutter speed automatically to give you the best photos and videos with minimal noise while the LG V10 doesn’t do as well especially as the scenes got darker.
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.
