There are several screen resolutions that can be selected for the Galaxy Note FE 2560 × 1440, 1920 × 1080, and 1280 × 720. Selection of this screen resolution will affect battery usage. My experience, using the 1920 × 1080 resolution still looks good on Samsung Galaxy Note FE.
There is no noticeable difference in quality between the 2560 × 1440 resolution by 1920 × 1080. Unless it really sees the screen. Also, use the phone for activities that focus on the screen like games or virtual reality. In 1280 × 720 resolution, will be seen a decrease in the quality of the screen display more clear.

In darker conditions, the F1.7 aperture gives more ambient light into the image. As with any smartphone camera, even with OIS, everything can be a bit blurry. the Samsung Galaxy note FE takes pictures that rival any smartphone, past or present.
The front-facing 5-megapixel camera does not solve new problems. But has a wide field of view, so selfies are no problem. Even with very bright sunlight conditions making sharp changes between shadows and light, the camera performs well.
Samsung Galaxy Note FE Battery
With the battery capacity decrease in the Galaxy Note FE to 3200 mAh, is this phone so bad for battery endurance? That’s my first question when looking at this phone.
During the testing period, the good Galaxy Note FE can be used during the day. Galaxy Note FE takes 22 hours to drain the battery from 100% to 15% with use for social networking and web surfing. The screen on Time is about 3 hours.
So far battery endurance is adequate, not ugly very bad but also not impressive.
Samsung Galaxy Note FE Performance
What about the performance of Galaxy Note FE for everyday use? One word from me: impressive. Whether it’s for a standard mobile operating, playing games, or using various apps. the Samsung Galaxy Note FE smoothly outperforms.
However, there are times when I feel the stuttering performance. When operating the phone, especially when shifting the home view to the Bixby page. This is commonly found in Samsung phones, to conditioning is to use another Android launcher.
When tried to play games that require high performance such as Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition. the game can be played smoothly although the animation graphics look less soft. Other games like Need for Speed No Limit and Mobile Legend are smoothly played.
For security, there is the Iris Scanner feature to unlock the phone by scanning the eye. Although not as safe as a fingerprint or PIN scanner. Its use is quite easy and quick to identify and still more secure than a regular face scanner.
IIS Scanner’s adjustment process is not difficult. Although it is recommended to not use glasses when using this feature. I can still use my glasses when I scan my eyes through Iris Scanner.
Like other Note class phones, Galaxy Note FE is used various features of S-Pen. There is a Screen Write feature where users can scribble on what appears on the phone. There is Smart Select to select a certain area on the phone display for later processing. Also, Screen Off Memo to write on the phone screen without the need to turn on the phone.
