It goes without saying that there’s quite a bit of competition between mobile carriers in the United States. We often see them tearing into each other via advertisements and that’s bound to continue in the future.

The Samsung Galaxy Note5 is a pretty great flagship device when it was launched last year, but then again, since we do not live in a perfect world, there is bound to be some sort of imperfection that accompanied the handset.

Never before has Samsung ever used a push to eject mechanism for the Galaxy Note’s S Pen.

The phone features a 3,000mAh battery versus the 3,200mAh battery on the Galaxy Note 4, a bit odd considering that OEMs usually tend to improve on these kinds of things in newer versions.However based on reviews, it seems that despite the smaller battery size, it […]
