Samsung has taken the wraps off of the Galaxy Note 5, and to be honest, we’re quite impressed. It has a 5.7” Quad HD Super AMOLED @ 2 560×1 440 (518 ppi) screen, 64-bit Exynos 7420 Octa core (2.1GHz Quad + 1.5GHz Quad) processor and a massive 4GB or RAm. Oh, and don’t forget the stylus.

Oh yes, and he also has a rather strange obsession with collecting coffee mugs from his travels.
