    No regrets... And I did decide to get the 64GB... Not sure I need it...but I sure feel safer with it than without it, futureproof-wise...

    I was a little unsure coming from an iPhone 6 Plus that worked flawlessly. I have had a Note 2 & 3 in the past, plus plenty of other Android phones, so I knew what to expect. I must say that I have been very pleasantly surprised and felt good enough after a couple days with the Note 5 that I sold my 6+. I fixed some battery concerns with a factory reset and the thing has been a beast ever since. I forgot that one lesson I learned a couple years ago; always do a factory reset before setting up a new device. Don't know why, but it always seems to help.

    After 50 mb of data or 30 minutes of talk time my carrier won't accept returns. (bell) went over 50 mb 5 minutes after turning my phone on. But I intend on keeping this phone. Was going to wait for 6+s but never tried a note before. Loving the S-pen.

    I finally got around to doing some productive things with the note (instead of spending all day reading forums) and I finally used the s-pen in all its glory with this phone and it is a productivity powerhouse. The ability to add OneNote and Microsoft Word to the air command partnered with screenwriting and smart select is about to make this a good note taking semester for me. And the speed and steady battery life makes this for me the best note experience ever. The s-pen is going to get a lot more use than it did in the last two notes I had. *big sigh of satisfaction*

    I'm absolutly in love with this phone. I have one on verizon and the advance call feature sucks. I get dropped calls all over the place. Even with a strong signal. Im trying my best to get used to not being able to talk on the phone and surf the web at the sametime. I'm still within my 14 days so we will see.

    I missed the being on T-Mobile post, but as someone that has come to T-Mobile from AT&T, I can speak to that.

    It isn't true.

    Now if you are on any carrier and have a bad signal, you will get bad battery life. Also the two iPhones on the account that are now on T-Mobile, have no difference on their battery life on T-Mobile than they did on AT&T.
    I can second that. I just switched to T-mobile and battery life is very good. I am in Michigan and have no signal issues.

    How long were you on the 6+? What do you like on the Note over the 6+? I'm debating really hard about leaving the Android world and going to Apple. Just getting burned out on the phone hunt game.

    I'm still holding off. I had my heart set on the Note 5 but the 3000MaH battery has frightened me . For those of you who have made the switch, are you happy with it? Has the device been everything you've hoped for??

    Thanks

    How long do you need a battery to last, and what is your usage pattern like? It can't last forever, so I assume you have a duration requirement in mind...

    I have been testing my phone for the last two days, and here is what I experienced so far:

    Day 1 - A very light usage workday. Phone removed from charger at 6am and never trickle charged during the day. Charged the phone before I went to bed at 11pm with the phone battery at 35%. Phone lasted 17 hours and still had 35%.

    Day 2 - A light/moderate usage workday. Phone removed from charger at 7am and never trickle charged during the day. Charged phone at 10am with 10% left on the battery. Phone lasted 15 hours and had only 10% left. When I played with "ultra power save mode", the phone told me that the 10% charge could last another 2+ hours (but obviously in the limited ultra power save mode).

    I have yet to use it on a heavy use non-workday when I have no access to an AC wall outlet... But for the 80% of the time that I am just living through my workday, the phone battery capacity is pretty impressive...

    I need the battery to last as long as possible. I work 12 hour shifts. I could be stuck at crime scene for hours. I don't always have access to a charger. My SOT varies. I'm a fairly heavy use but mostly web browsing, messaging, and some sports apps. No streaming video or games.

    Do you mean you removed the phone at 7am and at 10pm it had 10% left?

    I'm getting 9-11 hours with moderate use and using Doze and Shutapp to help control background activity.

    Regrets? I like everything about this device and Android better than ios. I switched from iPhone 6+ and under same usage I was getting 12-15 hours with same use so definitely getting less now.

    I use mine frequently during the normal day starting at 6am. By 10pm (bed time) I'm usually at the 40% mark.
    On a crazy day I'll hit 25% by 7pm.
    For travel days I'll take a backup battery pack.
    For all I do with it, it lasts.

    Dude, I bought the S6 and it was a great device but the battery life (screen on time) was bad...i would average 3 hours. I just posted a screenshot on another thread that showed I got avg of 6 hours screen on time on my Note 5 with like 19 hours overall battery life. Huge improvement over the S6 with no lag and better RAM management.

    OP, there's nothing wrong with this phone to be frightened about. I wish they gave it a bigger battery... but battery life is still very good. And you should be able to use it alot and still get enough battery life to last your shift. These are great phones... you should buy one!

    No regrets at all. Got the Note 5 last week. Waited a week to decide what to do and get accustomed to Android again. Just sold my iPhone 6 today for $780. Love this phone. Have had an amazing time with it.

    Excuse my ignorance on this but you monitor Gsam? Can you explain what's behind it the benefits and how to do so? .

    All I mean by that is, I use GSAM battery monitor app and look at the results a few times a day.

    For example, here is today's numbers and you can see my averages.... Have you thought of returning your Note 5?-tprwzad.jpg

    I listened to podcasts with the screen off for several hours earlier today, or my screen on time would have been higher today. The bluetooth doesn't suck a lot of battery but streaming music does through the app...
