Such a bad phone in respect of battery life. Samsung made a piece of crap. I bought it 2 days ago nd its battary dain like hell. Battery always daining rather u use it r not. I am a samsung user but now that is the last samsung phone of mine.
How can I improve the battery lifespan since I charge my Note 5 2 times a day. any suggestions guys?
Dear GSM ARENA,
Please can't you report to Samsung that note 5 duos users are facing network problems (no 2G and 4G networks) after marshmallow update. Most of the comments here prove that.
We reported this issue several times but Samsung is not listening to us. Maybe Sammy will listen to you.

They use to manipulate the os and write the os that supports 4G after upgrade your phone will go to its original os and it will show 3G. Pls check check your network mode.

It would be resolved in upcoming updates.

I want the 64GB version but here in India it is available only in Gold Platinum color.
Please, what's the best version for Ghana, so that we will be able to upgrade from Lollipop to Marshmallow? Thanks.

I have got a note 5 sm-n9200 dual SIM a few days back! After upgrading the phone to android 6.0.1 the 4G technology disappeared from network operators!!!! Now the phone has only 3G/2G!! And I can't connect on LTE anymore! Can samsung explain this issue! I bought the phone targeting 4G connectivity, now it's not there!! What can I do with such an expensive device without 4G technology!!! Is there any new Update release on this variant to fix this issue?

It's not Hong Kong version (right version for HK is SM-N9200), it's Taiwan, Philipines, Malaysia version. Please change taht, it's confused for peoples on the way to find updates for their phones, that can do big problems like brick/dead phones. Thanks.
AnonD-525161, 10 May 2016So friends please advise me if I should upgrade to MM or stay with lollipop?I would suggest you to Go for MM. It will actually make your device really fast , and your figerprint also. I have made my one MM, I didnt faced the battery issue or the network issues. Its Awesome in one word.
So friends please advise me if I should upgrade to MM or stay with lollipop?
Post MM issues - try disabling SVoice after clearing cache. Wait 2 to 3 battery charge cycles. Battery life improves and is better than Lollipop.
You can use only one 3G network on one sim.Dual sim doesn't work 3G at a time. In that case Internet gets slow on the 2G sim slot.
Last night i updated my note5 n9208 to marshmallow i am facing serious battery drain issue and my moblie is heating up unnecessarily whether i am using it or idle !!
