Here's a side-by-side specs comparison between Samsung Galaxy Note 7 vs Galaxy Note 5. This will hopefully help you decide on your next Android flagship smartphone.
Here is our own, entirely subjective view of the top best smartphones of the year 2015 and the categories that they fall into. This year sees some lesser-performing companies sneak into our list alongside big players the likes of Apple and Samsung.
If you can feign surprise for a moment please - the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is getting a new Pink Gold color option. Or Rose Gold, if you like.

It seems that Samsung is truly serious about upping the ante when it comes to luring iPhone users across to Android. Samsung recently unveiled its "Ultimate Test Drive" program that allowed iPhone users to get their hands on a Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6 Edge+, or Galaxy S6 for a simple $1 outlay. Now, it seems that those who were excited to take Samsung up on the offer are in for an additional treat if they decide to make the switch across to Samsung and Android permanent.
Here's a specs comparison between Samsung Galaxy Note 5 vs S6 Edge+ vs Apple's iPhone 6 Plus. For those that are currently on the fence and having difficulty choosing the right plus-sized device for themselves, this head-to-head features and specifications comparison should help in making the right decision.
The introduction of Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 was enough to raise excitement levels amongst those who adore large screen devices. Samsung essentially created the "phablet" market, so it's only right and proper that consumers continue to get excited for the continuation of the Note range. The specifications of the Note 5 are enough to make anyone believe that the device would outperform most competing devices, especially a flagship from 2014, such as Apple's iPhone 6. With that said, we should all know by now that raw specs alone don't tell the full story.
No smartphone device is ever going to be classed as perfect. Perfect, as we all know, is an entirely unachievable target that should be aimed for when designing a new product, but expected to be missed. As part of the physical design of its new Galaxy Note 5 flagship, Samsung introduced a new spring-loaded mechanism that allows users to store, as well as reintroduce the S Pen when they desire. However, it seems that user error can not only negate the benefits of the new feature, but can actually cause permanent damage to the handset if the S Pen is inserted incorrectly.

Samsung has been basking in acclamation over the last few days for the refreshed design that adorns its Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ handsets that were introduced last week. The beautiful, sleek visuals that are achieved with the perfectly engineered use of metal and glass is an undeniable improvement on the plastic phones that we have become accustomed to from Samsung. But how does this new build quality measure up against devices from competing manufacturers when dropped onto tiles and concrete blocks?
