He said the device also features a curved backside, perfect for the edges of your palm.
Kim said, “Smartphones have become so central to our lives; so has the demand for larger screens. The first galaxy rates accelerating, this ability becomes even more prevalent. Software as a Service (SaaS) is becoming ingrained in the sector’s consciousness and Platform as a Service (PaaS) is also gaining traction. IT systems have to be fast and simple to be able to be agile.” Note was a breakthrough, not just for Samsung but for the entire industry. Bigger screens have gone from nice-tohave to a must-have and the display once called a gimmick is now the norm. With the Note 5, our customers can achieve more with their devices, quickly write down ideas and notes at meetings or wherever inspiration strikes, video conferencing with colleagues or family delivering an immersive viewing experience.”
Emmanouil Revmatas, Director, Hand Held Products, Samsung Electronics West Africa, said the company is aware that customers desire a big brilliant display but not a bulky device, causing them to choose between screen size and portability.
“At Samsung, we did not think that was a choice our customers had to make. With the Note 5, they have a big display in a slimmer package. The Note 5 is an intuitive and efficient device; it is the Galaxy re-defined, reimagined and re-designed,” Revmatas stated.
