For the Galaxy Note 5, Android O will bring some improvements to the way in which the S Pen is being used. For example, you can create GIFs, send messages with the innovative AIR command or get instant translation. Moreover, you can also edit and mark up PDF documents with the help of the Pen.

Besides the exclusive changes for the Galaxy Note 5, both devices are going to enjoy a new battery management page that helps maximizing the charge. It’s easier to multitask and to use the split screen, plus you also have a revamped Effects preview screen.

The Performance Mode will improve the performance at any time, while the upgrades made to the keyboard will improve language predictions.
