    Triple click the home button to reduce the screen and easier to use one handed.
    Have to enable in Settings...Display...1-handed operation.

    One separate for the spen might be good. I need to do some research on the spen, watch a couple of videos etc, and find some info. I am shocked how many Note owners of all the Notes, on this site, never use the spen.
    I realized 2 games the Spen works great for. "Word Search". You have to highlight the words you find and I found it difficult with my fingers, but so easy with the Spen. Also "Spider" solitaire. The cards are tiny and the Spen works in moving then easier.

    Spen works great for many games because of that. I've had a jigsaw puzzle game for years and it is much easier to drag pieces with the spen.

    I don't know if this is new or available on other phones. I've seen 3rd party apps for this in the past, but now Google has it baked right in! For those of you who enjoy your privacy and have some sort of security set, you can now add trusted locations to allow your Note 5 to automatically disable the lock screen!

    Also trusted devices. I use an LG Tone + Bluetooth headset at work all day, so the phone stays unlocked unless I get to far away and the headset disconnects. Once disconnected, the phone will lock right away. Also, if you do not use the phone for 4 hours it will lock.

    Mine has an icon that goes to t-mobile voice mail. I use Google voice so it's useless to me, but I couldn't see a way to change it in settings. So I'm not sure what yours is.

    S Pen Ink notes integration with Desktop Apps with GN5

    Findings in experimenting with S Note sync to Samsung App (Samsung account) and Evernote:
    • Samsung S Note Desktop App is slow and ink has huge lags when updating notes
    • S Notes synced to Evernote are just screen shot images of the S Note - not dynamic


    Experimenting with GN5 OneNote Mobile integration to DeskTop OneNote
    • Sync is Fast
    • Ink inputted into your note on the phone STAYS as INK in the Desktop OneNote App
    • Very tight integration - More capable than S Note integration


    Two Images below:
    1. Evernote's static bitmap of the S Note from the phone
    2. OneNote's dynamic "live ink" integration of the Mobile OneNote now integrated into Desktop

    Bottom line for me: There is a hugely effective solution in the tight and dynamic ink integration of notes between the Galaxy Note 5 and Desktop when using OneNote Mobile and OneNote Desktop.

    Well done Microsoft and Samsung - this is a huge winner!

    Advanced Calling on VZW... I guess it only works on VZW Android phones that also have Advanced Calling (VoLTE) enabled? My wife has an iPhone 6 so it doesn't work with her phone.

    Couldn't agree with you more. I've been using this same set up for about a year now. In my opinion you just can't beat OneNote between your Note Phone, Note Tablet and PC.

    I noticed the app drawer was just dropping apps in as I downloaded them. I prefer them alphabetically. I noticed in the upper right hand corner there's an A-Z option. Changed mine.

    Also, there's an "edit", and you can drag and drop the first into the other app and it creates a folder. Rename, etc., and you have a folder for unused or unliked apps.

    This is the native Video Calling available in most if not all Unlocked variants and maybe some other non-US carriers.

    Thank you for that. Some I have learned, but that is great. I started a thread here, http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...ml#post4631730, but this video helps a lot.

    I didn't realize that you could rest your hand on the screen while you write with the Spen. That is good to know.

    I also discovered that you can "remove" the icon by dragging it up and then into the garbage can. Bring it back by clicking on the clicker on the Spen.

    Can't really tell because I don't have anybody else to try this with, but in my Unlocked Galaxy S6 as soon as you press that Icon it immediately changes to Video Call, it will be interesting to test it to see how good it is.

    VZW may not have gotten Samsung Pay but they got native video calling instead. Worth it?
