Engadget Review

Samsung's Galaxy Note series has never been for everyone, but the Note 5 just might change some minds. It's the smallest, most comfortable version of the phablet to date, and thoughtful software tweaks make the S Pen feel way less gimmicky. A great screen and first-rate performance are icing on the proverbial cake, but some people will still feel burned by the lack of expandable memory, a bigger 128GB option or a removable battery.
