gunz, 01 Jun 2017hi guys. does anyone know if the sim card tray can read micro sd card as well?Hi, no unfortunately not. It just takes another SIM card in there
Great phone !! That was until the touchscreen suddenly stopped working after 8 months and eventually blacked out totally. Samsung saying I should pay $200 + for a new screen despite that it's still under warranty.
Build quality is awful though as the back, and even the front glass are about as tough as egg shells.
I've gone back to my old but reliable note 3 until I can buy another phone.
It's obvious that Samsung's new generation of eggshell flagships are built to poor quality standards.
Galaxy S5, s4, s3 and older note series offered better value for money as I know many who r still using them without any issues.
If ur looking for a beautiful phone with good screen & camera but which u will have to constantly treat like an egg,, and which can fail at anytime, go for note 5.
If ruggedness, durability & quality are priorities, better to look elsewhere.
Wow fantastic.. i got nougat update.. the fon is amazing.. very smooth..

The ultra power saving mode is still available. Just go to the shortcut menu (swipe down the screen) then press hold for a while to the power saver then you will go to the power saving mode option automatically and you can chose if you want ultra power or just power saving mode only.
Hope it will help
does anyone know if the sim card tray can read micro sd card as well?
AnonD-95012, 31 May 2017I could not agree more to you on these changes that you mentioned. With the advent of new flag... moreMost of the problem that I noticed in on this thread is about the battery life when it was updated to Nougat. I do not have a problem about it since the phone charges fast plus you can use the Ultra Power Saving Mode Feature to lengthen the battery life of your phone. I love this feature of the Note 5 since it changes the user Interface to a much user friendly and simple mode more than having a stock android device. It's still going to allow you to use Facebook and other apps of your own choosing. Easily allows me to last for almost a day of use in perfect timing reaching home.
I could not agree more to you on these changes that you mentioned. With the advent of new flagship release these days, I could not find a reason to upgrade that is because still it's a very competitive device. I was planning to upgrade to a new flagship but upon careful studies about the new devices carefully reading the reviews, there is no significant changes from the Note 5. Built quality wise, design, specs, camera, and among others. I am a very happy user. Perhaps if Note 8 will significantly beef up itself when it comes to specs and ergonomics, it will persuade me to buy the handset. I could not leave without an S Pen. A lot of friends would want to buy my device but certainly I could not just trade it for a newer device. I enjoyed the update making me feel that my phone is new. Thank you Samsung!
Can u guys tel me what replacement screens are compatable with sm n9208 please as i cant find any in uk

Do anyone knows how to fix this issue?
when will i recieve the note 5 sm-n9208 nougat 7.0 update i currently live inalta and um still waiting
At first I was very hesitant to upgrade to Nougat 7 because of many negative feedback here but nevertheless decided to take the plunge, and it was a very good decision to do so. My Note 5 Duos now feels like a new smartphone with many new useful and cool features (I like that when taking screenshots there an option to scroll down for a bigger coverage area; also selfie in the camera now has a wide panorama option; availability to do split screens w/window size control; double click to quickly open previous app; night mode to go easy on the eyes, etc etc). With regards to battery, there's no fast drain on my unit at all - from 100% at night and waking up the next day, level goes down to around 95% - not bad at all (just close all apps before sleeping). In a way the Note 7 fiasco could be said to be a blessing for Note 5 owners because now I've installed two Nougat 7 updates already, something which would not have happened if the Note 7 was still around because as it is now, the Note 5 is the de facto flagship of Note series and Samsung is fully supportive with respect to software updates in a timely manner. Kudos to Samsung for looking out for Note 5 owners, I am one happy camper.
The Nougat update definitely is a wow. Puts more value to the handset since this was released still way back 2015. It feels like new. I was supposed to buy a new phone this year and is planning to buy the S8+ but deeply realized that there is no significant improvement at all that you can cite giving you that more reason to buy the new models these days. Hopefully the Note 8 will soon be launched giving me that reason to buy a new handset. Couldn't trade the S Pen feature for any other device.
