Anyhow you might be right about the lcd burn and all, after the update the phone heats up like a flat iron instantly when playing regular games. I guess it caused mine to get that burn. Been trolling the net. Sad news all note series are could be prone to pink tints. Glad yours working smoothly upto now.
Been using this phone since 2015 with no issues at all. Only the battery consumption increased when updated to android 7.0 but it's not considered as a phone's issue, rather an OS issue. Other says they never dropped the phone nor got it wet but they forgot where they always puts their phone that bends their phones (such as back pants pocket) that causes the phone's screen to go blank. Also, maximizing their brightness that causes AMOLED burn. The phone is good, only it's users has issues and not the phone itself
Been using the phone for a year. Pink hue from the bottom starts spread. After 1month entire screen becomes all black. Never dropped the phone nor overcharge it. Still looking for a cheap class b lcd screen+digitizer replacement. Never buy this phone. Waste of money
Note 5 duos user, 23 Oct 2017Pink tint from the bottom of the lcd screen grows till it covers the entire screen in pink hue... moreNormal case with amoled display.
While I use more samsung than xperia, xperia have better battery, 3years still good for gaming, note cant stand 2years
1 December 2017 security update is full of garbage. Better stick with 1 November 2017 Update. 1 December 2017 security update will ruin your device

My note 5 ..create a problem after update 7.0 ..battery backup is low before ..and get full only on call..not on use web browsing...
Pls let me know.....why
Samsung change android version in their mobiles....if he want to upgrade software version ..then it should be do only new latest launched mobile when it come in market only...
Software update is good only ..application should be done keep up to date only....
There are much kind of mobile are survived with bad battery life then he goes to software version changed....pls...dont done it is .
We all humble requested to u ...pls dont done this....because u make money waste of all user ..which either ..indian or .out
What I really wanna see is when I use the phone that is running a Samsung Experience 8.5 UI. I don't care about the Android O. As long as it's running the latest UI and apps that were updated, I won't feel that my phone is being forgotten for ages
To those that were asking on how to update their phones, if they cannot update it OTA, then there is an alternative way to update your phone using your computer. Just go to this link: https://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/ and check for an update using your phone's model number. There is an instruction on how to install stock firmwares without unlocking your phone's bootloader or rooting it
