Samsung Galaxy Note5 vs Samsung Galaxy S616
Unlike the Galaxy S6, the Note5 offers an extra volume mode for those situations where the normal volume through the earpiece isn’t enough. Still, the quality with the standard volume is pretty good and audible – with voices exhibiting a fair amount of fidelity and clearness on both handsets. The phones offer noise-canceling mics that do a good job at weeding out ambient noises, and relaying our voice loud and clear to its receiving end.
With much longer battery life and faster charging abilities, the Note5 gets the endurance nod.
Both phones can be charged extremely fast with the supplied quick charger, for about hour and a half, while the Note5 offers fast wireless charging as well, bringing down the time to charge the battery wirelessly from about three hours on the S6, to two hours on the phablet, so the battery round goes entirely to the Note5.
For those looking to uplift their screen desires, Note5 is a more than worthy replacement of the capable Galaxy S6. Not only does it sport a similar eye-catching design, but also offers an extra input method with the S Pen stylus tucked in the thin and light chassis.
Needless to say, the Note5 is also a multimedia powerhouse, with a much larger display, the same capable hardware, and a much longer battery life for those video-binging sessions that may arise. Add those advantages to the ones in the camera department, such as extra manual modes, and the Note5 becomes one of the most potent upgrades to the S6 you can find, if you can stomach the Benjamin or so higher price.
