    The long screenshot thing is not how they implied in the prezzie.

    I gathered a 3 page long list of map directions could be captured with one click, without having to scroll down yourself.

    It could be because I'm feeling sore about the UK allocation of 0.

    I have never used any Galaxy note before. I'm not a big fan of touch wiz. I use Google now custom launcher. Will all the functionalities of SPen, multi window, etc.. will work with custom launchers? Writing on the phone using SPen when phone is locked works even if using custom lock screens?

    The ram management on the S6 is a joke, I know, I use one every day. Does it seem like Samsung has addressed this issue at all with the Note 5? Have they brute forced it with the extra gig of ram? It really sucks to have to reload every application almost every time I move away from it.

    What about GPS on the Note 5? Some variants of the Note 4 had some issues with signal reception.

    How's the camera in low light? I saw sample pics at the Best Buy one, but from real life experience How does it par to other Note devices?

    Sounds like it's almost exactly the same as the S6, which has some pretty fantastic low light capabilities. Some of the best around.

    You just hit the multitasking key, then press the multi-window button at the top of an available app. You then press another recent app.

    Yup you can use S Pen and Multi Window with Google Now Launcher.

    I honestly never really had an issue with RAM management on the GS6 โ€” phone worked fine. I'd assume the Note 5 is the same. I haven't noticed anything weird yet.

    What about GPS on the Note 5? Some variants of the Note 4 had some issues with signal reception.
    My Note 4 GPS has worked fine. Note 5 seems to locate me easily as well. Gotta remember that there's often more to "GPS" than just the actual GPS chip โ€” most of location services is mobile networks and Wifi networks, not just the regular GPS chip.

    What about lags? Multitasking button? Switching from cam to the gallery? Everything smooth?

    Same camera sensor, lenses and features as the GS6 โ€” which is to say low light is really good. The Note 4 itself still has a good camera, but the Note 5 is just a little better.

    Thank you once again. Well, my Note 4 can't locate me indoors at all, whereas my old Galaxy Ace 2 does its job in a blink of an eye. So something must be wrong with it, I guess.

    so how does it do on gaming? I had a iPhone 6 plus and games on it were lagging. after breaking the phone I went back to my current phone galaxy s5 which seems to do much better than the iPhone. however the iPhone supposedly has better specs. just wondering because the note 5 has killer specs.I pre ordered my note 5 yesterday and it should be here on Tuesday

    I guess I do more multi tasking, seems my GS6 is always having to load applications that should still be in memory given the three gigs of ram the phone has. This is a pretty talked about issue I feel.

    So did we cover the available storage vs the OS

    and.... (to me it's a little silly but someone will want to ask):

    Ram now v out of the box or boot up.



    (actually never mind either. I'm good.)

    24.44GB out of 32GB here. Remembering this is a Euro model, so not sure how the US models will be.

    How has the calendar changed in the latest iteration of TW? Does it sync with Google? How are the widgets? Any new ones? I am looking for more settings and options in widgets such as opacity

    Looks about the same as the previous version in the GS6. Lots of white, with primary colors for different functions. It syncs with your Google account of course, as soon as you have it entered in the system.

    There's just one widget, which shows your full month calendar in anywhere between a 5x5 widget size and a 3x4 size. No other options.

    Not curved like the edge, I mean 2.5d instead of being flat toward the edges. It makes screen protector to not cover the whole display
