Top 5 Problems with Galaxy Note 5


The Galaxy Note 5 has finally been released by Samsung last Thursday on its Unpacked event.

The South Korean company has been suffering declining profits and so has high expectations from the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+.

However it seems that the high expectations that Samsung has with the Galaxy Note 5 are going to go down the drain.

This is because there are some problems with the Galaxy Note 5 and we will be talking about 5 of the major issues that the new phablet has.

Now first of all let’s talk about the design of the Galaxy Note 5. As the device has gotten slimmer to make it look classy and good, Samsung has compromised on the battery of the device.

1) Smaller and UnRemovable Battery

Yes the Galaxy Note has a smaller battery than the Note 4 and Note 3. The device has a 3000 mAh battery as compared to Note 3’s 3200 mAh and Note 4’s 3220 mAh batteries.

Apart from this the Note 5 will not be having a removable battery unlike the Note 3 and Note 4 and as it has a smaller battery it means that users will have to charge their Galaxy Note 5 in the middle of the day.

Plus users won’t even be able to keep a spare battery which they could have used in time of need.

Now this gives us the view that with the Galaxy Note 5 Samsung is actually going back rather than moving ahead.

However Samsung maintains that they have used an optimized screen and a more efficient processor but with the Android Lollipop and the Galaxy S6 experience it is hard to believe Samsung.

2) Not Waterproof

Another major problem of the Galaxy Note 5 is that the device is not waterproof. Samsung gave the option of waterproofness in the Galaxy S5 and it seems quite illogical that they did not continue with this norm.

3) Micro USB

The third problem is that the device has micro USB. Now the problem with micro USB is that the trend nowadays is going towards the USB type C.

The USB type C will start to come as standardized in all devices next year and then the Galaxy Note 5 will seem as if it is a very old device that we are using.

4) Exynos Processor

The fourth problem is the device’s processor. The Galaxy Note 5 runs Samsung’s very own Exynos processor.

Now the main flaw of using the Exynos processor is that it won’t be supported by the CyanogenMod. The fifth problem with the Galaxy Note 5 is its memory options.

5) No MicroSD Slot

First of all the Galaxy Note 5 lack a microSD card slot which means that users won’t be able to expand the memory of their device. Now apart from the lack of a microSD card slot the Galaxy Note 5 will only have the 32 GB and 64 GB options.

Even though these are very huge problems the Galaxy Note 5 is an amazing device to have and is the most powerful device that Samsung has ever developed.
