The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus are a welcome addition to our portfolio of phone offerings that are specially designed so you can live the Smart Life to the fullest,” said Ms. Kathy Carag - Smart Postpaid Business Head.

Go Bigger on your Smart Life Experience

Prior to the launch, Samsung teased netizens with an intriguing blog post enumerating reasons why a bigger phone is better – for taking pictures, filming videos, reading articles, for texting or chatting, preparing business presentations, watching films, and playing mobile games.

"The phone is no longer just for making calls and listening to music. It has evolved into a life companion capable of making just about every aspect of our lives more convenient, and screen size plays a big part in this," Samsung noted.

As expected, Samsung packs bigger and better features in its latest phablet and smartphone, advancing their design, and multitasking features.

"At Samsung, we believed in the promise that large screen smartphones could actively address some major consumers pain points by providing users with a better viewing experience and more productivity on-the-go," said Mr. JK Shin, CEO and President of IT and Mobile Division, Samsung Electronics.

He added, "With the launch of the Galaxy S6 edge+ and Note5, we’re reemphasizing our ongoing commitment to bold, fearless innovation that meets the needs of our consumers."
