AnonD-77443, 02 Jul 2016From the rumors the GN7 is better than the GN5 in the following areas
- More compact
... more1) chances are less as it is going to come with a bigger battery it will be more heavy or may be bigger than Note5.
2)IP68 its a good to have feature but i never had any of my phone broken by water so i can even manage without Ip68.spen may make things complicated for samsung to make it water proof however lets see.
3) better cpu and gpu ...Its also good and has to be better as its Note7. BTW there is not any application or high end game that the note5 does not play already.
4) Sd card slot is good and but there are more chances that note7 wud come in only 32 gb modal which is another deal breaker for many but yes rumor suggests that it wud have 64 and 128gb or more capacity mem modals but lets hope for the best.
5) 6gb ram is again good to have but Note5 already performs better with 4gb ram.and almsot never goes short of ram as fqr as my usage is concerned.
6) Usb c 3.1 is also nice to have but dont know how samsung is planning the Gear VR compitablity .
7) bigger battery is always a wellsome but i wud not want my phablet to be very bulky and big but lets see how samsung manages it.
8) iris scanner is .Another good security feature but if you ask me i can even live without fingerprint or iris scanner .
9) Last and most important deal beaker for me the Note7 .Its camera in low light is a bit better than note5 but in daylight most probably it will give same downgraded Square photos and not so good videos in comparision to Note5.as i have already mentioned many times in here.but lets hope samsung does some wonders and puts a better camera sensor in Note7

leonard, 29 Jun 2016tell me what to do if password is forgotten?I had the same problem at one time, When I didnt turn off Power of my device and pull the sim card out and put a new sim in it then Power back on, and i got locked up by gmail account, I didnt forget my password at all, i had been research and tried to figure out how was
this happen, I power off the phone for 7 days, let it seat a while, not charging it, and after 7 days i power up the phone, the google ask for password again, O login then problem solved.
if you have similar this issues, if it is a Phone Password locked, then I will suggest do a hard reset will clean it right out, I tried that, Work on me.
I am a Samsung Fans since the day 1, I had Samsung Note 2, Note 3, 4, and Now Note 5.
I am happy and very satisfied with this Note 5 device, I enjoy using it, Fast, stored a lots off apps, not slow any down, watch HD video online, and play HD games, etc...I recommend this
device to everyone if you love to use this device such as watching HD movies and Data.

Phone is overall good and everything. It lags a few times & may freeze but thats not to big of a deal. The real deal breaker, is that when the new Marshmallow update came out, the phone started lagging even worse, battery life quickened & the screen started pealing off. After going to the samsung store, they said they will take it in & fix it under warranty, but it'll take a week or so. The last time they said that when my old phone (s3) would over heat, not work & lag every second it took over 8 weeks to get it back. And then change, NOTHING!
Samsung is good phone but will get corrupt really easily. Think before you buy!!!
From November 2015 to date of today I have had 2 Note 5. The first after the software update in April 2016 stopped working, not receiving or making calls and also the screen began to peel away like paper. Warranty I was handed another in late April. In May there was another update software and fast charging stopped working. And to complete the screen is taking off. I have dealt with Samsung to resolve me and nothing. Note 2 leave my phone thinking it was much better and is crap.
Hey guys, i bought my GN5 about a week ago, but i have come to learn that it's restarting itself almost 5-7 times in a day, it's on the latest software, i have factory reset the device and wiped the cache but still it's restarting. What could be the issue? The stylus on the other hand smells like burning electronics, but the phone is not overheating, it's not heating atall. Could it be hardware of software? What can i do to fix this?
I buy and i use it.
I was not satisfied.
No SD card slot !!!
excessive battery consumption. Note3 much more perfect.
The battery is not changed.
According Note3 phone so shrunken.
