Other pros of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 are the abundant stylus functions, ability to expand the device's memory and the upgraded camera. The Note 5 was also applauded for its clear call quality, which was significantly upgraded from earlier Galaxy Note models. Furthermore, the Galaxy Note 5 features several performance upgrades, including a speedy new quad core processor.

Conversely, Techspot's biggest complaint about the Galaxy Note 5 was its steep price. Another major disadvantage of the Note 5 was poor camera performance in low light scenarios. In addition, the phone was cited for being complicated to use.
