When the phablet released in August 2015, it received much credit for its new premium glass and metal design. Furthermore, the device has impressive specs such as 4 GB of RAM, a great quad-HD display, and a hallmark feature - the advanced S Pen stylus.

While most smartphone manufacturers were avoiding the stylus after releasing with iPhone in 2007, the South Korean tech giant chose to bring it back in 2011 with its take on a smartphone big enough to venture into small tablet territory, the first-generation Galaxy Note. As opposed to just making a smartphone with a massive display, Samsung also made the included S Pen a significant part of the Note experience by incorporating it with software.

Every launch of Galaxy Note has had major improvements to the S Pen, and one of the latest enhancements is the capability to write on the screen when the device is on sleep mode. The company's Air-Command menu, which offers shortcuts to the S Pen features, allows customers to add their personal shortcuts to apps.

For those considering to move to an S Pen-equipped Galaxy Note phablet, a new offer will score them the 32GB unlocked Galaxy Note 5 for 538.95. This is a huge saving as compared to the $739.99 deal at AT&T for the same phablet.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy Note 5 packs a 5.7-inch 2560 by 1440 quad-HD display with a pixel density of 518ppi. The device is powered by Samsung's Exynos 7420 octa-core processor, 4GB of RAM, in addition to the 32GB internal memory.

With regard to the camera specifications, the Note 5 comes with a 16MP main camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), autofocus, LED flash, and a 5MP front camera for selfies and video conferencing. Another great feature is the 3000mAh battery that offers up to 22 hours of talk time. Similarly, the device has wireless charging abilities built-in for use with Qi-compatible chargers.

Users interested in the limited deal should head over to eBay to purchase the phablet for $538.95, shipping inclusive. Here is a sneak peek for Galaxy Note 5 features.
