The newest members of the Samsung Galaxy family were introduced in August and as usual GetUnlocked.com is ready to unlock them. The Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 Edge+ joined the Samsung flagship team and have received rave reviews since their release. Despite the fact that these two phones originate from separate product lines, they have been released together because they share many similarities in design, style and software.

The Galaxy Note 5 was designed for productivity and is targeted towards business users. While Samsung has maintained its traditional set of productivity tools, it has given them a smart UI overhaul to fit in with the learner, faster overall UI (TouchWiz) that we saw debut with the S6 and S6 Edge. The S Pen has also been tweaked to be even more responsive.
The Galaxy S6 Edge Plus on the other hand is essentially a larger version of the existing Galaxy S6 Edge and is primarily a consumer device. While it is similar in size to the Note 5, it lacks the Note line’s S-Pen and productivity suite.
