You get 1000 pats in the back. It's like telling us you must never drop the Note.5 because that's the likely cause of the glass breaking. Did they put that in the instruction manual as well? If not, you're entitled for a free replacement.

Clearly stated the Spen, if inserted in the wrong way may damage the silo. Your fault not reading the manual. I guess you're the type that simply sign any contract without reading either.
Recently I bought a Samsung Note 5. Earlier to that I was using Note 2.
the screen off memo recently found to be not working within the usage of less than one one month of purchase. On checking with the service center, they gave me shock it is probably the pen might have got inserted from the reverse side of the pen where it can damage. If it is so why then the side design is poor. No sockets generally seen it can be inserted other way so that it doesn't harm the gadget. It is surprise failure of Samsung R&D.
Samsung also not ready to service the same at free of charge even under warranty. It is bad, such a costly phone has such design deficiency without precautionary measures.

When it gets to about 15%, I just change the battery in under 90 seconds to get 100% again.
And what do you have to do with your Note.5? Plug in for "under 90 MINUTES" to get 100%. You have to carry around charger/charging pad/powerbank. Just waiting for another week or so for my 6400mAh batteries, so I'll never change them just during the day. HUGE advantange. Samsung should consider making a version with at least 7000mAh to 10,000mAh capacity. There is not a teachnology yet that can double the power hold - might as well increase the volume of the battery if they are going for a sealed type.

They are the one who advertise LTE-A and yet it jist sucks up more battery. That is why I try to stay in 3g mode most of the time to save battery. The worst part is that 5g coming soon and battery life for the smartphone industry will get worst. Somebody really need to invent a new battery soon.

But most of the time, I'll not carry 5KG of weight in my backpack in the city if I don't need to.
I can still sketch my designs when I need to with the Galaxy Note. Write pretty fast with swipe text when I need to. Carry an extra battery for full charge in roughly after 12 hours in the day. Heck, I carry over 40GB of e-books numbering to over 900 on my microSD card if I need to reference something for my academic papers. My Note is practically my secondary screen with my Surface 2 for research papers, and internet hotspot when I need to.
But most of the time I carry my Note 3, wallet, extra battery, keys and my bluetooth earset with no bag - just all in my pockets. Pretty soon I'll just put in a new double capacity battery and eliminate carrying and swapping a battery before I go home. Advantage of a removable battery system to keep it going to my heavy use with my unlimited LTE data service.

If there wasn't a problem with the multitasking I'd be fine. That's a biggie. Seems each phone has a different issue (hence my fiancé's phone going buggy on the battery stats).
I'm sure this games fine, it has the power to do at least Playstation 3 graphics. I'm a Diablo 3 guy myself so I'm not really into gaming on the phone, would like the multitasking to work is all.
Anonymous, 12 Dec 2015Get a Galaxy Tab S as a secondary device for media consumption.That's the point for getting a Galaxy Note - big screen that can fit the pocket. No need to carry a secondary device. But I think that's what they want you doing - nerf the phones without memory expansions to get the tablets with memory expansions. All with sealed battery so you should also get their power packs.
[deleted post]Thanks for the tips. I'm on a GN4 so space isn't an issue but i might have to look at google photos and google music. The unlimited storage looks ok. (a 32GB GN5 still wouldnt work for my needs though)
siemens is back in game under the name gigaset 3 new models flagship killers
I recently got a new Note 5. Its totally amazing, Love every feature in it. Increased RAM (compared to Note 2, Previously owned) is super fast, also able to download content fast, I totally love having in-built MS Office and it automatically makes a highlights video of videos in your phone. I especially love its camera (both front cam and back cam) its very clear but sometimes it shows out every lil mark on my face which my old phone never did.
Having a good camera is sometimes bad too, but most of the times its good. I am totally satisfied with this product. :)
Draw back : it dosen't have hidden apps where I can dump rarely used applications

The thing to wonder is that my note5 is supporting my 2013 lg smart tv and the tv that old also has a remote working as a mouse for note5 for me it was like fortunate co-incidence.

However I am a fanboy when it comes to TV'S. I only do Samsung with that. LG I feel is almost as good, but; the screen ratio settings are weird and don't seem to work for my channels. Samsung delivers in that aspect as it auto adjusts.
As far as phones: I've had everything and no fanboy here. Have a Crucial SSD in my PC instead of a Samsung Evo. Hmm. Do have a Samsung monitor though.

Yes, I'll admit it; Samsung copied the old iPhone with the glass back on the Note 5.
Do I like it? Not really. It's the same cop-out that Apple used with the HTC.
Usually people that are looking for an android phone want the customization factor though. It's two different form factors when choosing between an iPhone or Android. It's not about looks really. You seem to love the Note 5 so why suggest an iPhone? Although I have suggested an iPhone to a coworker before, it's because she wanted the simplicity instead of dealing with customizing. That's about it.
Stick to your guns if you're really into this Note.
