Much has been said about the new Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ and we’re expecting to read a lot of reviews once the pair is released. And as with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, we can soon expect several brutal stress tests that will surely make your heart skip a beat. The two new Samsung mobile devices are considered as phablets (phone-tablet) because of their sizes. Their specs are better than the premium flagship phones released earlier this year.
We got a hands-on feature already and we said that these are phablets made sleek in design. The phablet twins come in style and show a number of new functionalities for a more efficient multi-tasking and multimedia experience.
The devices boast of high specs and one important and very notable feature is the fast wireless and wired charging. Both devices are capable of being juiced up without any wires. Wireless charging is still a new technology but Samsung is one of the frontrunners in using such having first being introduced with the Galaxy S6.
Both the Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5 have this wireless charging technology embedded on the phones. They are actually compatible with most wireless pad in the market. Compared to ordinary charging, wireless charging takes longer. Charging the 3000 mAh batteries on the two devices usually take 90 minutes (1.5 hours) to full charge but it can take up two hours (120 minutes) with wireless charging. This wireless charging feature is compatible with WPC and PMA.
Samsung has promised faster charging than ever but it's also more convenient now because the South Korean giant also introduced a special 5200 mAh battery pack that allows fast charging on-the-go.
To review, the premium pair features Android 5.1 Lollipop, 4G LTE connectivity,64-bit Exynos 7420 Octa-core processor, 4GB RAM, 32GB or 64GB internal storage, 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED screen, 2560x 1440 pixel resolution, 16MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing cam, NFC, 4G LTE connectivity.

The latter is heavier at 171g compared to the curved-edge phone’s 153 grams.
