    The long press on my Home Button is not recent apps which I want. Usually no big deal but I'm not spotting a "buttons" choice in the settings. Where are they hiding that setting?

    It is the left hand touch capacitive button. If you press it once brings up recent apps. Long press brings up multi window

    Interesting. I wouldn't have thought providers would shift features in things like that. Go figure.
    On Verizon, you tap on the settings icon/gear in the camera pane, and one of the last things before "reset settings" is "Shutter Sound" - A simple On/Off toggle.

    Never ever heard of this feature on any Samsung device. Which is a pity of course!

    smbrewer..... I am still using a Note 3 with Nova Launcher but I use the long press of my menu (left of home) to open recent apps. There are multiple gesture settings to do the same thing. I have the paid Nova Launcher for access to all these gesture settings. I love Nova Launcher and hope to get my Note 5 soon.

    Hi!
    I bought a Note5 day before yesterday and I have been facing problems with the network. That is, my network just drops and after sometime, I get messages for the Missed Call Alert thing. Are you facing this problem as well.
    And also, the music tends to pause at times when I lock the phone. Could you shed me some light on this matter?
    Thanks

    EDIT : It also takes a long time to get a dial tone when I try to call someone.

    Andrew, could you please advise me if there is a way to do HDMI output on this device. I've owned the last 3 Note versions and have always been able to use an MHL to HDMI adapter to send video out but I'm understanding that the Note 5 doesn't support it. Is there another option or am I stuck with only wireless options. We tend to stream movies while camping to a projector and so wifi dependent setups are not usable.

    I'd also like to know if the Note 5 has an HDMI out. Not a deal-breaker for me, but definitely a let-down for someone who travels quite a bit.

    Unfortunately no. I bought a new Samsung MHL/HDMI for my Note 4 one month ago, tried it on my Note 5, the port does not even fit.

    I have had my Note 5 for 3 days now and find that I cannot select the options bar in the text messages at the top with my finger when not in landscape mode. The option for Photos & Videos, eGift, Contacts, etc. I'm finding the same issue in Facebook for Posts, Friend Requests, Messages, etc. If I rotate to landscape they work just fine or if I use the S Pen it works in both standard and landscape mode. Any thoughts on what is causing this?

    Tested both MHL and Slimport, neither worked with my note 5.

    Nope, can't configure that. You can only turn on/off the double press for camera and triple press for one-handed mode.

    Anyone with the Verizon version... what size sim is in this phone?
    Nano

    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).
    Yup, you get precisely that slider in the Pro mode.

    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?
    Seems to be a crapshoot which one is better in low light. people say the G4 is better, but I've taken great shots with the GS6 and Note 5 in low light. The Pro mode can absolutely help with this since you have the option to set things how you like them, but of course this is going to take some knowledge of how to manipulate camera settings for better low light performance.

    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!
    Yeah, no more swipe in/out quickly for reduce size. Just three presses (not taps) of the home button. I don't really see how three presses is any easier/harder than the swipe in/out — just different.

    Mine just arrived and PLEASE GOD help me turn off the touch key light!!!! I can't find the setting anywhere! :-)
    No settings for this. Only way I see that the touch key lights turn off is in Power Saving Mode.

    is there a piece of plastic covering the lens like on the older note phones
    Seen some with a little bit that covers around the lens area, but nothing over the lens itself.

    Fast wireless charging how's that?
    Don't know, don't have a Samsung Fast Wireless Charger yet.

    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
    They got rid of the Menu button multiple generations of phones ago. Android has moved on from that.

    And why would you want to turn off multi window? if you don't use it, it's not in your way...

    Hi Andrew:
    You said you already hooked up to a quick charge wall plug — will see how that goes. I want to know if the third party quick charge 2.0 charger can charge the note 5 with fast speed? or we just can use the original samsung charger.

    thanks for your reply.
    Any charger that supports Quick Charge 1.0/2.0 will charge the Note 5 faster. Samsung isn't doing anything fancy, they're just following that spec. The charger in the box supports it, but you can use anything else.

    Does your Galaxy Note 5 hangs or crash when pressing the home button after long periods of inactivity?
    Mine doesn't work properly at times.
    Nope.

    Is it worth the $1,099 samsung want in Australia for a 32Gb??
    That's up to you to decide. Your money!

    S- Note... I like it, but it could be better. Is it the same version that is on the Note 4? (4.1)

    The current way it integrates the quick notes and the regular full s notes is kinda clunky.
    Seems roughly the same here, save for a few design changes.

    SHUTTER!
    Can you silent the camera shutter?

    I currently have a lg g2 and gives option to turn off camera shutter completely. I upgraded to lg g4 and the phone had to be on silent otherwise you will here the click (kinda annoying if you wanted to take a selfie without notice lol) l. returned my g4 to wait for note 5!! (woot woot)

    Depends on the phone model. Most international models don't let you do it (laws in various countries/regions prevent it), but usually U.S. models will let you turn it off. Really just depends on which one you get and how they've decided to handle that.

    This is strange. I found this article on the Samsung Website regarding HDMI out on the Note 5:

    How do I connect my Samsung Galaxy Note5 to my TV using an HDMI ® cable?

    According to this, it should work with their smart adapter, which is an MHL-type connection.

    Is this an oversight on their Support Team assuming that the phone had the capability, or a bug in the current OS release? Maybe Samsung is taking some pointers from Apple and locking down the accessories for this phone.

    For those familiar with the note family is there a way to make the the floating apps opaque... for example the Lg G series phones. This is on my lg g2

    I just got my note5 Sunday evening and I'm having the darndest time trying to figure out how to move my apps around in a way that satisfies how I work. When I click edit I can only delete or add apps, not move them around. What's the trick to doing so? On my previous Samsung Galaxy phone I simply had to press, hold and move it to wherever I wanted them to be. Not so with the note5.
    TIA

    Thank you a lot once again. To quote myself from another thread: It all depends how often you use this feature. On the note 4 I switched back and forth between these modes all the time. Sometimes left, sometimes right. With a triple press on the home button the Note 5 doesn't even know which side you prefer. So you have to tap on the screen once again in order to change sides. Apart from that there are no on screen navigation keys available anymore when using the shrinked window screen mode on the Note 5. Not that comfortable.

    No settings for this. Only way I see that the touch key lights turn off is in Power Saving Mode.
    Less useful customization is always a bad thing. Not Good!

    They got rid of the Menu button multiple generations of phones ago. Android has moved on from that.
    Right, but the menus are still there. So it's definitely a very useful feature especially if you have to deal with a device that big. Do you reach the menu button (three points) on the top of your device with your thumb comfortably?

    And why would you want to turn off multi window? if you don't use it, it's not in your way...
    I don't turn it off myself, but isn't battery consumption theoretically spoken a little bit higher if checking for input all the time?

    Is there an easy way to set the device to when on vibrate, it vibrates for all notifications, and when on sound, it makes only sounds for all notifications, and not vibrate?

    Currently, it seems one has to turn on vibrate within each app. Doing so, when the device is on sound, it would vibrate, too. I don't want that. Thanks
