How do you solve guys proximity sensor problem when on call. Thanks
Samsung galaxy note 5 does not display the sim tool kit menu enabling mobile money transfer(mpesa). Any one experiencing a similar problem and how did you resolve it?
AnonD-632400, 11 Jun 2017VoLTE setting (when you pull down the quick settings bar) is enabled by default which I believ... moreNo it has nothing to do with volte, because I use airtel 4g, which doesn't use Volte.. morever I use the International variant, not the Indian one... so it doesn't have Volte..
Whatever I would like to say that, my problem is fixed as soon as I updated my firmware to Android 7.0 Nougat.. I mean it is as good as my iphone now.. 1% drain in every 3 hours or so... and the 1% goes to, Device idle.. previously in Android 6.0 the 5-6% drain in every hour was sucked by android OS, because the CPU would keep awake.. it was a bug.. sammy killed it on Nougat.
I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO SAY TO ALL NOTE 5 USERS.. JUST UPDATE TO NOGAT TODAY.. EVERYTHING IS BETTER.. FASTER, EFFICIENT, AND BETTER MULTITASKING.
AnonD-373654, 10 Jun 2017because it isn't used to this much.. it was like 1% drain in about 4-5 hours standby... i hard... moreVoLTE setting (when you pull down the quick settings bar) is enabled by default which I believe one of the reasons why the battery was draining. now that I disabled it, it will make a huge impact on the battery life.
turn off VoLTE setting it will give you battery life like before the update
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2017I'm getting a note 5 in about 2 weeks. I can't wait! Should I update it to nougat or keep it o... moreupdate to nougat today only, with all security patches.. marshmallow is currently having huge battery drain bug.. but samsung stopped supporting android 6.0 on note 5.. so you must update to nougat.. they release bug fixes, every now and then
Anonymous, 09 Jun 2017Why wouldnt it drain? because it isn't used to this much.. it was like 1% drain in about 4-5 hours standby... i hardly noticed any in real world... now it is like 5% every hour.. it is abnormal, cause.. if i leave it overnight on standby, the battery comes down 40%.. thats totally abnormal
I'm getting a note 5 in about 2 weeks. I can't wait! Should I update it to nougat or keep it on marshmallow? How's the battery life on nougat? Thanks.
Fantastic mobile devices after upgrading to v 7. You will find wonderful features that very satisfied

But from 1+ year nothing like this happened to my device. Better to sell this out and take a new one
note 5 mobile screen is so weak, after a period of use you find a reflection of the colors on the screen and burned the screen of the mobile twice the first time because it fell and I repaired inside the power of Samsung and two months later screen was burned again without reason. screen is soo bad
I really wanted a Note7, I had a note 3 and was saving money for the Note 7 until it decided to become a suicide bomber, so I got a Note 5, and is the best decision I've made, Battery life went down with the Nougat Update but still, it last up to 64 hours with no issue, AMAZING screen and great performance, if any of you would like to get this phone, do it.
my has a poor RAM so it is very slow and in my phone there is a small light at front near air gesture detection it is so irretatable for me
After Update my volume down button not working properly how can solve this problem
AnonD-673824, 05 Jun 2017I agree note 5 is the best smart phone and after the update i lost battery life i got nearly 3... moreI don't think you'll need to change battery that soon, as battery can normally last upto 4 to 5 years or even more. Also it depends how you use/charge the phone.
Like ckdinesh said, make sure if VoLTE setting is disabled.
Also, updating apps from play store can make the difference because some apps may not supported with naugat.
I'm normally getting 5 and half hour SOT. My usage is surfing web, news reading, 30min of small games and whatsapp etc.
But if you use gear vr, facebook, downloading and heavy games. Then the battery can even drain in just 1 or 2 hours. So, yeah it all depends on our usage.
Also check settings one by one and disable or turn off things you don't need.
Hope this will help.
