Basic Differences Between Galaxy Note 4 and 5

Basic Differences Between Galaxy Note 4 and 5

Though the Note 5 retains the same basic shape and size, the materials and design have been upgraded with a new glass back and metal frame, a noticeable improvement over the plastic material of the Note 4. The back is now covered in glass instead of plastic; it flows perfectly into the glass back for a seamless transition

Rather than having the bottom of the S Pen exposed to yank out with a fingernail, there’s a new clicking tip on the end of the S Pen that you press to eject it from its silo. It means the S Pen can sit flush in the bottom of the Note 5 when not in use

Battery is no longer accessible for easy removal on the Note 5, but it adds the one-touch fingerprint sensor to replace the swipe-style one on the Note 4. To make up for the sealed 3000 mAh battery, Samsung has included new high-powered fast charging technology, which the company claims will charge up the Note 5 as fast as the Galaxy S6 currently. There’s also built-in wireless charging, which supports both Qi and Powermat.
