    I had the Note 5, and compared this feature with the Note 4. It's basically the same functionality. On the Note 4, just hold the button on the pen and simultaneously tap twice on the lock screen to get the Action Memo. In the overall scheme of things, it's just as efficient and convenient.
    I didn't know I could do this. Thanks.

    Exactly, the only difference with the Note 5 is when it's in sleep mode, but chances are after when we finished writing, we most likely would want to wake up our phone anyway to check our other notes, email, surf, etc. So not much time saving compared to the Note 4. Besides with the Note 4, as soon as we pull out our SPen, we immediately get the lock screen, then double tap to launch Action Memo.

    This "new" feature reminds me of the Galaxy Round, rocking the device to show notifications in sleep mode, when we can do that already with Air Gesture.
    I see time saving in the writing a note quickly. Sometimes there isn't time to open something or press something else. I really haven't used it must, except to test it, but I'm still learning to use an Spen. For anything.

    In terms of time saving, it's identical with the Note 4. Another way is go to SPen setting, choose Action Memo in Detachment Options. Action Memo will immediately appear on the lock screen as soon as you pull out the SPen. The other way as I already have mentioned is press the SPen button and double tap the screen.

    In all honesty, even though the Note 5 specs are slightly better than the Note 4, Samsung has really taken away some useful functionality that the Note 4 has, not just the sd card support and swappable battery.

    Is there an option to keep the back arrow lit in note 5? My note 3 has it under display>more settings. I cannot find that option in VZW note 5?

    I don't think there's a way to change it either way. I would prefer mine off.

    Back arrow light can be turned off by switching to Power Saving Mode
    There is not a specific setting to turn this off.
    On the Note 4 you could turn it off.
    Absolutely ridiculous the Note 5 doesn't have this option.

    Unless I'm misunderstanding the problem, sure you can turn it off

    One you open something in a certain app, that's the default always. I think different launchers or maybe an app might fix that, but there's no other way.

    This may help you. This app lets you select the app you want to open with each time.

    I think this discussion will help with those two arrows you have. http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...fied-icon.html

    To save a screen shot you want to save it to your gallery using the little icon on the bottom after you've written on the screen. Then you can attach it to your message through the app.

    One you reconnect, does it go away?

    Maybe a different launcher?
    I have 2 on mine that won't come off. One for my Gear 2 Neo and one for my alarm clock. Using stock TW.

    Was there ever a way to do this on any phone? Maybe because I don't do many videos I never heard of it. Perhaps it was a previous version of android or a note or a specific type of phone.

    I bought the Note 5 about a week ago.

    All my other products are Apple/Mac, and i am still to find a method to make the Note5 communicate with iTunes, or my MacBook.
    It seems Kies is no longer applicable for Note 5, another program is there, Smart Switch, but it is not for file transferring.

    Help please.

    To the left of the stop button, there's a camera. Just click it. It'll take your pic without interrupting the video.
