Samsung launched its Galaxy Note 5 back in 2015. The phablet became a huge hit among fans, and many people still use it. Its successor, the Galaxy Note 7 did not receive the same response from fans when it landed in stores though. The explosive battery of the device forced Samsung to recall the product from the market entirely. The Galaxy Note 5, on the other hand, did not suffer from any of these flaws.
