Galaxy Note 5 Is The Most Popular Phone In The US, For Some Reason


Despite the release of Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy Note 5 continues to be the popular smartphone amongst consumers, at least till the geographical boundaries of the United States.

Galaxy Note 5 Garners A Satisfaction Rating Of 86 Out Of 100 With iPhone 6s In Close Pursuit

According to The American Customer Satisfaction Index (also known as ACSI), Galaxy Note 5 has achieved the title of America’s favorite smartphone. The handset was able to obtain a satisfaction rating of 86/100 in the nationwide poll, but things were not easy for the previous generation flagship phablet because the device was able to beat Apple’s iPhone 6s Plus by just a single point. The Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note 4 ranked both ranked third place with a rating of 84/100, while the iPhone 6s came in fourth with a score of 83/100.

While Galaxy Note 5 managed to appeal to America’s consumers, ACSI had a different tale to tell when it was time to list the most reliable manufacturers in the region. Samsung earned second place with a score of 80/100 while the Cupertino tech giant Apple came in first with a satisfaction rating of 81/100. On the other end was Motorola, which managed to accumulate a total of 77 points out of 100.


Galaxy Note 5 features 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a QHD display. In order to make the build quality far more robust than Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note 5 does not pack a removable battery and the rear side is definitely a fingerprint magnet if you use it for prolonged periods. One of the biggest gripes of the 5.7-inch smartphone is that it does not feature a storage card slot, which to some is definitely a deal breaker, but on the upside, it does feature an Exynos 7420 SoC coupled with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM.

Additionally, it also features a 16MP rear camera sensor with image and video OIS, and the aperture of this smartphone stands in at F/1.8, allowing you to separate the focused subject from the background for the final result to really stand out. One of the things that Samsung has improved considerably are the camera sensors inside its mobile devices, and Galaxy Note 5 is a prime example of how far the Korean tech giant has come.


The phablet also has a 3,000mAh battery, which actually gives you better battery timing compared to Galaxy Note 4, despite the latter possessing a larger cell inside its housing. Other specifications of Galaxy Note 5 include a wireless charging circuit, as well as an 802.11ac Wi-Fi adapter.
