    Is anybody else getting this? I don't have NFC enabled so I'm not sure what's causing it. It tends to happen when I'm charging it (using the charger that it came with), however, sometimes it happens when it's not charging. I called Samsung tech support and they "claim" it's normal.

    Any ideas or advice is much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    When is it doing it, if you can determine?
    Is it your default notification sound or another?
    Can you identify the sound if it is not your default?

    I don't have an answer but these answers may help someone else with clues.
    Good Luck!

    It's really sporadic. Yesterday, it kept doing it while I was charging the phone (and I only used the charger it came with). Today, it's not really doing it. The sound I'm hearing is the same default sound that you hear when you lock your phone by pressing the button on the side of the phone.

    Go under Settings > Sound > Screen Lock Sound and uncheck it and see if it happens again.
    Good luck!

    Will do...thanks Ron!!!

    On a side note, do you recommend any accessories? Screen Protector? Cases? etc. Currently I got the invisibleshield glass installed perfectly (except for the halo effect) and i got the Tech 21 case. Although there's a halo effect, it's not that close to the edge so I'm not worried about dust settling in...fyi Thanks!

    Cases and screen protectors are a personal decision and also depend on your work/play habits.
    Most are recommended and there are plenty of discussions on here about various ones and the merits of them. I do use a case but not screen protector. I have been fortunate with that combination for me. Someone working construction will need all the protection they can get.
    Look around at the threads on here about them and good luck finding a solution that works for you.

    I noticed it yells at you if you walk away with the pen out to remind you so you don't lose it

    On my Galaxy Note 4 it was the NFC service. I turned it off. Settings>NFC and Sharing>NFC>Off
