Samsung Galaxy Note 5 gets Sweet Nougat
Yes! The Nougat is finally here for the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. While downloading the 1.38Gb update, I was excited yet worried on my decision to update… After the restart process, I can visualize something good is being delivered to my Note 5… and I was right.. Here are some of the noticeable updates…
The Nougat comes with tools to tweak and fine tune the performance of the device which can be found under settings, and a feature called Device Maintenance. For the Battery section, you can switch between two battery saving modes, Mid and Max giving you more control over your device’s power consumption. The device is able to optimize the device for specific usage such as gaming and etc.
In comparison to the previous version of Android, the Marshmallow, the Nougat is faster. Here is a video for the comparison.
The Nougat comes with a new blue light filter that warms up the Note 5’s screen at night. The light reduces eye strain when viewing the display’s normal colors and complements a better night’s sleep. The tone of the screen is adjustable to your preference and can be scheduled to automatically turn on without having to do it manually before bed.
The screen resolution is also changeable based on the usage.
With the S-Pen pulled out from the slot, an added animation capture feature is embedded with the regular Retangle, Lasso and Oval capture. Simply range the area which you would like to capture the video and press record. A GIF file will be created once you press the STOP button.
When you decide to play your downloaded videos, controlling the volume and the playback is much easier with the gesture control.
The Galaxy Note 5 adapts a feature from the Galaxy S7’s version of Android Nougat where you will be able to find some UI changes from the previous. Multi-Window now operates on a platform level which you may now use split-screen and pop-up view with a host of applications which the options are limited on Galaxy Note 5’s previous Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
You can now access more applications at a time and a new pop-up window function supports up to five separate windows on screen. And with Nougat on board you can also launch the pop-up view directly from your Recent tab.
Samsung Pass is a great and secure tool that serves as a master key to all of your logins (with usernames and passwords). Samsung Pass uses the Galaxy Note 5’s fingerprint scanner to access which gives added security and added convenience. This synergy makes it an excellent combination.
These are some of features Nougat has to offer for the Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Mobile did a great job doing so… Stay tune for more info on further updates..
