Samsung Galaxy Note5 - The Best Note Yet

On the 3rd of September 2015, Samsung Malaysia officially launched the Samsung Galaxy Note5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ phablets at the Orange Concourse of the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall. Like all previous Samsung launch events, this was a spectacular affair with models and celebrities aplenty!

We were one of the few to receive a Samsung Galaxy Note5 to play with, and we have thoroughly enjoyed using it. Today, we present our in-depth review of the Samsung Galaxy Note5.


Samsung Galaxy Note5 Unboxed

The Samsung Galaxy Note5 in a white cardboard box, that looks exactly like that of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, just larger in size. It has two anti-tamper stickers - one on each side, and three other white seals. You will need to cut the two anti-tamper stickers and at least two of the white seals to open the box.

The Samsung Galaxy Note5 comes in four different colours, which are denoted by the coloured band at the upper right corner of the box. The colour of the Galaxy Note5 is also printed on a sticker at the bottom of the box.

The Galaxy Note5 also comes in 32 GB and 64 GB variants (in some markets), although there are rumours that it will be available with 128 GB of storage in very selected markets. You can verify the storage capacity by looking at the coloured band at the upper right corner of the box, or the specifications at the back of the box.

What's Inside The Box?

When you open the box, you will find the Samsung Galaxy Note5 wrapped in plastic, and sitting in a tray on top. When you remove it, you may find a gift underneath. In this case, it's VIP access to Sons of Anarchy on iFlix. You will also find a packet containing a Quick Start Guide, a Region Lock Guide and a Warranty Card.

At the bottom of the tray, you will find a SIM ejection pin. To get to the other items, insert your finger into the hole next to the SIM ejection pin and pull out the tray. You will find four items in the bottom tray - the S Pen nib replacement kit, a fast adaptive charger, a microUSB cable and a set of earphones.

When you remove everything, you should find the following items :

  • One Samsung Galaxy Note5 phablet, wrapped in plastic
  • One Samsung S Pen (inside the Note5)
  • One Samsung S Pen nib extractor with 5 replacement nibs
