Please check the link given below it will help to solve the problem
I'm using samasung note 5 for last few days before that I'm using j7 prime. J7 prime gives better battery life than the note 5 i agree j7 prime its a TFT display but note 5 after a full charge battery drain 100% to 15% after 7hours screen on time is 3hr30 min its normal???
Very serious issue with my phone Samsung note 5 is, I charge is 100% and without using it in the morning it is completely dead, what is the specific reason to avoid this problem
The Samsung galaxy note 5 is upgrad of 4.4.2017 in we don't found one thing it's charging notification. Please remake it for us please.
I've had my note 5 for 5 months. I want to first say I should have done my home work before going and buying my phone and not trusted a sales person. The note 5 is absolutely junk! It's horribly slow, no battery life, no expandable memoryou and so over priced! I feel so ripped off it will be a long time if ever I buy Samsung product of any kind.
I love the Samsung Notes. This is my third one. My problem with the Note 5 is not having enough internal memory. There us no SD card slot. And the pen keeps popping out. I've lost and found it several times. It's expensive to replace too.
To put it mildly, the battery life sucks! My Note II lasted longer. I just took my phone off the charger at 6 o'clock this morning. It is now 9:30am. I'm down to 24%. Hardly any used today so far. This is an everyday occurrence.
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2016Icons don't seem childish to me. Maybe you should grow up?Now that HTC 10 has been launched, do you see how to take a good use of Google design principle and innovation ? The only place where Samsung is good is design(look wise) & display quality. Other than that I see nothing pleasing.
May be you need to grow up and come out of the "touchwiz cocoon" of yours.
Mr. Protagonist, 18 Mar 2016Ok I accept the fact that Touchwiz is way smoother now but seriously give me an honest opinion... moreWell this is where we have Themes on the Touch wiz. If you don't like the Touchwiz Default theme, icons,etc., just change the theme. And the good thing is that it doesn't slows down your phone like the external launchers do as it just changes the icons, colour schemes, etc. I myself am using the Material Design 6.0 theme from the theme store and I love it. I can give my phone a new look every day with it. Blaming Samsung for the icons won't do justice since they have already provided you with the easiest way of changing the themes, colours, etc if you don't like the default ones.

I also acknowledge the fact that Touchwiz is way more snappier. But I am never gonna accept those hideous icons for such hefty price device. I would rather buy Mi5 which has so polished UI, similar specs at half the price.
MACoholic, 11 Mar 2016Touchwiz these days is a lot lot better than the Touchwiz we had to deal with about 2 years ag... moreOk I accept the fact that Touchwiz is way smoother now but seriously give me an honest opinion here, do you really wish for such childish icons?
It might be a big thing not to target a company but for a company as big as Samsung, I expect them to bring change in their design philosophy, not just changing a little colour here and there in every other iteration. After all I will be paying them huge sum, surely not to get those kiddish icons.
This version of review is appreciated, easy to understand and arrive at final decision apart from detailed technical reviews. Thanks GSM team
Great new format GSM Arena. like the scoring format too.
GSM Arena reviews are great as always, best reviews if you need to decide on what device you want to buy next.
Mr. Protagonist, 11 Mar 2016Touchwiz scored 4.5 ! I am done with this review."For the first time in the history of GSMArena.com, we would be scoring the phone's performance in several key departments. It would hopefully make it easier for our readers who are less technically inclined to see how good a phone is with a quick glance. We've tried to be as fair as possible but we're sure many of you might not agree, so consider these scores to be our own opinion and don't be too hard on us if you don't agree with us."
Great for short review! But it is better if you can add some Other Features such as: LED notification, USB OTG capable, Hi-res audio, mono or stereo speakers, Call quality, Protection display (ex.Gorilla glass 3), Connectivity (e.g. Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, BT version, Apt-x capable, NFC, DLNA,strong wifi, Usb 2.0 or 3.0 port, etc...) Thank you and more power!
This review is fair enough for anyone thinking to buy Note 5! I like this type of reviews
Currently using Note 4 & I didn't use the IR blaster or the SD card since I bought it in 2014,firstly was planning to get S7 Edge but its too too expensive the double price of Note 5 so no need to pay all this price while I'm waiting to get the Note 6 cause it will deserve more! so i'm thinking now to get note 5 but affraid of the battery performance specially after android M & the speakers sound!
Audio section can be prepared with some technical details given and seen very quickly (like VDC signal output, dB speaker, THD, Dynamic range, etc.). Photos and videos can be seen but audio can't be heard and some data needs to be given in a short section very briefly.
This type of 1 page quick review is very good and informative.
