My wife is using Note 5 (Exynos version) for past 6 months. I liked the phone hence purchased it. Earlier I was using Mate 8, but then Note 5 screen and S-Pen attracted me to buy this. But now I am feeling disappointed due to its battery backup. I bought it yesterday, and charged it to 100%, then went ahead with apps installation and phone configuration, the battery went down below 40% in no time. I thought it is because I am continuously using it, I charged it again to 100% this morning and unplugged it at 9AM, by 2:30PM, it is gown down again to 40% with just 1 hour of screen on time. I then checked with my wife about her feedback on her devices, she said the same thing that the battery is not good. I am wondering why people all over boasting about its battery backup. This is my 2nd experience with Note, earlier I had Note 4 (Exynos version) but I changed it because of battery problem and bought Mate 8. Could you guys comment?
AnonD-553158, 13 Jul 2016Hey there, went for the note 5. Brilliant phone. Thanks for the advice Welcome to the note5 family bro and yes the camera is excellent on Note5 be it photos or videos .screen is also the best in market Yah the phone looks a little fragile from back but dont worry it is a gorilla glass from back so it wont shatter so easily i used it without any case for 5 to 6 months and it has a few drops but it still servived and the glass back is also needed for wireless charging which is very good feature however you cud get few good quality cases from spigen etc many also support wireless charging with the case on .btw Congrats for your purchase.

I have been using Note 5 Duos for last 4 months but I am facing network problem while talking. The voice seems not clear sometimes to the receiver. Android version is 6.0.1
Can anybody help ??
Hi all. I'm seeing a lot of people asking the same question I did a few weeks ago.
Should I get the note 5 or something else?
Well I was stuck between getting the note 5 or the A7 2016 amongst other choices and in the end I went for the note 5 duos and I don't regret it.
Well worth the money and I would recommend to anyone that is considering a phone go for the note 5.
The camera is excellent and the screen graphics are amazing. The battery last me about 2 - 3 days with moderate use. It feels a little fragile in the hand but also comfortable. I have put on a pouch just to safe.
Very good phone and we'll worth the money
Thanks to all who helped me decide.
samsung fanatics, 26 Jun 2016don't get confused, buy a note 5, and you'll never regret.Hello, well I took your guys advice and got the note 5 duos.
I must say I'm really impressed with it. The phone has very good Camera, in fact probably the best I have seen.
Not much bloat ware on it. The s pen works brilliantly.

Im in great confusion. I want to buy a phone out of these two options. Please... moreIf you want SD card slot then buy z5p

What no downgraded camera ? It is 12mp camera with sqaure photos plus results in low detailed pics in daylight and sheaky videos.only thing going for it is a little better low light performace .thats it.
note7 needs atleast 20mp camera plus f/1.7 apreture.but i guess it cud fail cause 1st its only curved modal no flat screen modal like note5 and second a downgraded camera plus if it will be only 32gb just like the s7 and s7 edge things will go more worse for Note7..hopefully samsung thinks abt these aspects.
Hey guys, I'm planning to get a new phone. I'm just confused which one to get ? Should I go for a Note 5 or A9 pro ? Please let me know your opinion. Thank you :)
Hi guys recently i got note 5 as gift. When i showed it to my friend he said its fake. How can i know if its original or no please?? There is any good application which can help me out?

Note 4 is far better than this. No OCR feature heating problem and power button issue. I've wasted my money...
