Externally the corresponding note 5 Duos except the slightly widened SIM Tray variant sold in Germany. In pragmatic terms, the design of questions of taste is quite apart, very successful.
  • The display takes about three quarters of the front one, the frame thus falls compared to other smartphones made very low. So the phablet is despite the large screen still good in a (large) hand.
  • Very successful is the flat construction . A mere 7.6mm high falls from the thickest point. And although a large battery is installed with 3000 mAh capacity.

SIM slots

It requires that for each slot nano-SIM format. If one uses a larger SIM, you should replace them. Although it is also possible to cut the small card, but the nano-SIM is also thinner. But this has caused problems in the test for other models, as the tray and the slots are designed very flat.
