falajony, 14 May 2017i'm really confused guys... s8, note5, Huawei p10 plus or iphone 7 plus.... I need a phone w... morei am using note 5 and i will not lie to you or do any fanboyism. see note 5 is almost 1.5 years old now although it is fast, snappy and cheap now but there are faster phones out there today so you choose note 5 only on conditions that you can't stretch your budget and s-pen is a must for you. even if s-pen is must have why not wait for note 7 refurbished. now comparing android and ios is tough coz it depends upon individual needs but still a person who wants an iDevice will buy an iDevice even though all ports are absent so you answer your question. also there are different aspects on each ecosystem which is better than the other. s8 it is the biggest, the best, better than the rest phone right now. s8 is the best choice right now in terms of camera and battery life. regarding speed both iphone 7 plus and s8 are good but iphone does memory management a little bit better. i know nothing about huawei p10 plus. Cheers!!!
i'm really confused guys...
s8, note5, Huawei p10 plus or iphone 7 plus....
I need a phone with good battery, camera and fast... nothing more than that
Hi, Nougat got downloaded automatically however did not get update it yet, pls suggest if I should go about it or the battery issue still persists.. pls suggest
Reinn, 09 May 2017i believe you can put SD at the Sim 2 slot your choice really dual 2 networks or memory extensionThere are no space for inserting SD Card in sim tray
I am honestly thinking that samsung should not drop the note series. I wish they would still create one.
Reinn, 09 May 2017Did you try to turn off animation in the developers options? my office mate taught that to me... morei have been doing this since lollipop days i guess. setting animations,transitions to 0.5 makes any phone super smooth. i still wonder many people don't know this. after removing bloatware this is the 2nd thing i do after i buy a new android device.
Don't get this. Instead get S7 or S8, they are better and newer. Note 5 is now an old hardware, and will not get software support much either. The battery life is not reduced at all, it's the same. But there are newer phones.
It is a reliable phone
the update also have power saving mode
when my battery was 4% it kept working for almost 4 h, also battery charges so fast.
so no big deal.
Guys I'm thinking of getting this phone but after seeing people saying that after the new update its battery life has been reduced alot and also some other functional problems . If someone could give me a professional advice wether I should buy it or not

Pav, 05 May 2017Change your charger. It shouldn't take that much timeWhat about battery backup, it's not more than 4.15HRS compared to marshmallow 5.30HRS, screen on time.
Hard deserted, cache clear, reinstalled fresh OS from service centre, Nothing helped.
So, in short the Nougat for Note 5 is seriously not good for Battery life.
Samsung should fix this issue.
Jop, 03 May 2017Same issues with my note 5..it takes 3 to 4 hours to fully charge my phone.Change your charger. It shouldn't take that much time
I just got it a few weeks ago and mine had 7.0 nougat on it. I really like the phone. Its fast and very responsive. The battery has to be watched and you have to be willing to tweak your phone ( developer's option, lower that screen brightness, get rid of haptic feedback, shorten your screen timeout to 15 sec. etc etc...) Also a black wallpaper or very dark one is better.
The phone graphics are very nice. I had the note 4 before this one and the note 4, for its time, was an amazing phone. I really do not like that we cant remove the battery and no micro sd card expansion was a seriously shit move on Samsung.
Over all the games play well, the video is nice and the overall look of nougat is sleeker and more modern looking. I also like the new features in the menus. I really wish the notification panel was dark or black. too much white hurts the eyes.
If you can afford the new s8 then get that but if you're on a budget, I like this phone a lot. Get yourself a clear case and nice screen protector and you'll be fine.
