    I've had 3 different S6s that showed the same behavior.
    My S6 Edge has never done this my Note 4 has but only if I use Greenify to hibernate apps.

    nano.....i have an unlimited grandfathered plan and was coming from the note4...upgraded on my daughters note 2 line..thought i'd have to go into verizon to get myself a nano sim after i activated on her line, but the note 5 came with a nano sim for her line on the regular snap out card, and also a sim card was already installed in the phone. i was able to use that one to switch over and activate the phone on my line.

    I received my Note 5 yesterday and noticed that the S-Pen does not sit completely flush. Anyone else having this issue?

    If these were your first lollipop devices, I had the same issue when my S4 was upgraded to lollipop. Missed a handful of important notifications (call and voicemail) before I figured it out. Went to Settings - Sound and Notification, scroll down to "Notifications on lock screen" and select "Show all content". The default was something different and I had no idea people were trying to reach me. Since setting that properly it now works fine for me - I wonder if that's what was going on with your phones?

    Nope. That wasn't it. They weren't coming in at all. And I was getting calls and texts. It was only things like Facebook, emails, and score updates from theScore.

    One more camera question... Does the Pro Mode have manual focus control? (Sorry for mixing up the terms before hehe) Like, true manual focus (a slider from Macro to Infinity).

    Better than low light/ night shots on the LG G4? Heard they arent as good on the N5. Can you tweak the manual camera settings to make these shots come out a lot better like the G4?

    Just to get it right: the only way to shrink the window screen size for one hand operation on the note 5 is to tap the home button three times, right? The slide in out gesture doesn't work anymore and there's no side panel in order to activate the shrinked screen format? If so, that's another deal breaker for me (besides the obvious: no removable battery, no micro SD, no IR, no radio). I don't want to tap this damn home button a thousand times a day in order to switch between screen sizes!

    Yes, you have manual shutter speed controls up to 10 seconds. So not quite as long as the g4 (30 sec) but plenty long enough for 99.9% of long exposure photos you'd want to take.

    You have to be careful with a lot of the tests, they are very subjective. I've seen a comparison between the N5 and the 6 Plus that shot in Auto. If you want to test the sensor quality, then you MUST shoot in manual with the same exposure settings. If you're looking just to see which camera does a better job exposing the image on auto, then shooting in auto is obviously what you would do.

    To the other person, from what I've seen the N5 doesn't have a MF scale like the G4 but I will be seeing a live Demo today so I can check!

    Does the OIS help with long exposures or do you need a tripod?

    There is no established length for what is considered Long Exposure photography. But as a rule, OIS won't really hold long enough for the type of photos people generally consider as a long exposure.
    OIS is great for low light and/or indoor shots for people. But if you want light trails and such, you should use a tripod.

    Does the Note 5 come with the Stagefright patch already installed?
    I didn't see anyone answer you, but I picked up the sprint note 5 64gig today, just ran lookouts stagefright vulnerability checker, and it said I was NOT vulnerable......So they are pre-patched.

    Why would they get rid of the menu button?
    Supposedly you can long press the back key to get the menu button for older apps but it doesn't work.
    And the took our all the ways to customize TouchWiz. You can no longer turn off multi window

    I love they put the recent menu's button as a capacitive button. I didn't like having to hold the home button to multi task on my Note 3. THIS is far better.
