Bought my Note 5 a week ago. So far it's been great. Sound quality from the speaker is what you'd expect from a phone. With quality headphones you get a much richer sound. Display is amazing, compared to my old Galaxy S3. The s-pen is a great feature, that I'll be using a lot.
It's big at 5.7" screen, my old S3 actually fits within the area of the screen. I definitely recommend getting a case and screen protector. Love the fast charge capability, takes just over an hour to be back to full from 20% I'm a lite to moderate user but I can get almost 2 days out of the battery before I start feeling concerned about the charge level. Unless I'm playing a lot of games, then I will need to plug it in soon after. Running the T-Mobile Nougat 7.0 and it performs well IMO. Overall I recommend this.
I just can't use any large without an S pen. So I am stuck to the note series.
Anonymous, 27 Jul 2017EHWWW.... Nah! Nah! A7 2017 is way behind than this beast. See A7 has only 386 ppi and only... moreOh you mean the date of release? Oh yeah A7 is 2017 and Note 5 is 2015. But performance and feature wise? A7 2017 is still way too far from the Note 5 so stop dreaming of your A7 2017 as an alternative to Note 5. It can NEVER surpass the Note 5. My sister has an A7 2017 and she still wanted her husband's Note 5 as it performs way better than her A7 2017
I think 32GB inbuilt storage is enough for me atleast. Because I believe there are people including me who first bought Nokia 6600 with 64MB memory card and tried to put as much songs as I can on this little memory, then replaced the sd card with 512MB and felt like wow....
So 32GB is really sufficient for me, this doesnt mean samsung should not add card slot
I used the Note 5 for quite awhile. I had a hard case and suddenly dropped. The screen didn't break but the internal LCD is damaged so I paid 250$ for screen replacement. It dropped again and the LCD is damaged again. Honestly Samsung is intentionally putting glass so to break easily. iPhone Htc (until htc 10) huwai mate 9 and OP all are metal and they survive drops. Hell on Samsung. I used to like Note 4 but their software is laggy. I'm switching to OP5. To all users of Note 5 , be careful not to drop the phone

BUT has SD Card slot; more battery and better graphic card so this makes a7 a beast!
my wife and have both had these phones for two years, The batteries on both phones do not last as long as they use to, and if a few apps are running the phone gets hot when charging. Although the greatest issue I have with this phone is after two years my screen started to get pink and blue lines on it. No water damage always been in a case and no scratches or cracks. Within about 3 weeks my screen was completely black, I hadn't even paid mine off on the next plan yet. Then last night my wife brought me her phone, and it is doing the same thing, pink and blue spots on her phone. Now she babies her phone and takes very good care of it. I don't know why they make phones to go out after 2 years when they cost so much more than a TV does.
I have oneplus 3t and i m fan of S pen so can i cange my phone 3t to note 5??? Plz tell me
