Performance

Samsung Galaxy Note5 packs an Exynos 7420 chipset developed in-houtilize by Samsung with 1.5 Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU, 2.1 Giga Hertz (GHz) quad-core Cortex-A57 CPU, Mali-T760MP8 GPU, and 4GB of RAM. Save for the slight bump in RAM, the hardware setup is the same as in Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge.


First up is the CPU-centric Geekbench 3 test. Rather unsurprisingly, the Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ performed correct in line with the Samsung Galaxy S6 family.

Samsung Galaxy Note5 is expectedly one of the most powerful smartphones available on the market today. The handset handled every task we threw at it without even a slight hint of breaking sweat.

Samsung surprised quite a few people by opting for the Exynos 7420 in the Note5 - previously, the Korean giant utilized exclusive chipsets for the product range. However, no one should knock the manufacturer for choosing this route - the 14nm 7420 is roughly a year ahead of its closest competitor in terms of performance, heat management, and power efficiency.
