    My phone takes a long time to charge,I'm use the chargers that came with it ,and there's a notification that will say the percentage of the charge, and it says approximately 1 minuter until fully charged yet it seems like it takes forever.
    My Note 4 would charge to 100% in like and hour from 10% has anyone's else experienced this?

    You said chargers that came with it.. are you using a free wireless charger that has been given out with this phone? The reason I ask is the fast wireless charger has not been released yet, and many people who were getting a wireless charger thought it was the new fast charger. So if you are using a wireless charger that came with the phone it will charge at a slower rate.

    No the regular cord and brick that came with it, I hooked up my Note 4 charger and it charged up but I'll have to test it later when it drains to see how fast the note 4 charger takes,it might just be the cord by the way this phone is nice

    My wife had the same issue, and it was a defective wall wart (the part of the plug that goes into the wall, that the cord plugs into)

    Switched it out with another one I had from the S6 and it went back to Fast Charging

    Yeah I'm thinking it might be the cord, the only thing that got me thinking is from my ride to work the battery dropped 8% strava running an rhapsody this is my first full day with the note 5 ,my Note 4 wouldn't drop that much I'll have to monitor the battery and charge it up with my Note 4 cable, and see how it goes thanks for posting

    No it was the wall wart not the cable. You know, the little square that plugs into the wall itself, that the cord or connected to. I had spares from our S6's so I just swapped that out, the cable itself was fine.

    Why doesn't it say if plugged into the fast charger FAST CHARGING. It says it (at least when I viewed a video of it) for a FAST WIRELESS CHARGER, but why not say fast charging on the wired charger?

    It does.

    Standard charger says "cable charging" and the fast charger says "fast charging."

    It didn't the first 3 or 4 charging attempts out of the box, but then it started showing the Fast Charging. I think it needs a few power cycles when new to initialize the battery, was mentioned on another thread.

    Yeah I stopped using the charger that came with my note 5 thinking it was defective but then one day I plugged it in and voila it works good now,like you said it probably needs a few power cycles.
