If you think the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is too costly, then perhaps you’d be interested in this deal: its predecessor – the Galaxy Note 5 – is now going for considerably less in Malaysia. To top it off, it’s the more practical 64GB model too.
Originally retailing at RM2,399, DirectD – one of the most well-known retailers in Malaysia – is now offering the Galaxy Note 5 for only RM1,866. Not only is this a pretty generous discount, it’s a good price for what the Galaxy Note 5 has to offer too; granted it’s a two-year-old flagship smartphone.
Despite this, the Galaxy Note 5 is the second best option – beside the costly Galaxy Note 8 – for those who live by the Note devices’ signature S Pen. Aside from the stylus, the Note 5 also features a 5.7-inch 1440p Super AMOLED display, an Exynos 7420 processor paired with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage – unfortunately, it’s not expandable – and a 3,000mAh battery.
In the camera department, the Galaxy Note 5 comes with a 16MP rear camera with optical image stabilisation and a 5MP front-facing shooter.
While some would argue that RM1,866 is a hefty price tag for a two-year-old flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is still a pretty capable smartphone today. If you’re interested to get the Note 5, you can do so on DirectD’s online store.
