    I only regret getting the note 5 on verizon! No Samsung Pay and other features that other note 5 users have

    Posted via the Android Central App
    Interesting. If the Verizon Note 5 doesn't ever get Samsung Pay, is Google Pay expected to work?

    What other features does Verizon's Note 5 not have?

    Still that battery life sounds great.

    Thank you.

    I am on Verizon. Advanced Calling is a feature you set on/off on your phone. So as long as you keep it on, voice and data will work simultaneously.

    One issue that I will highlight with Verizon phone...there is a bug if you have Wifi off. Cell standby will be incredibly high when idle if you are using WiFi. If you dont use wifi...battery is amazing, but thats not always an option for people on tiered data. I keep wifi off (till Verizon fixes this) as I am on unlimited data. My wife on the other hand is on WiFi all day even though it kills her battery since she in on tiered data.
    I've got a note 5 on Verizon and its connected to WiFi basically all day, at home and work. Battery has been great, I'm guessing this isn't a very widespread problem?

    That's good to know since everyone I know on Verizon (including me) complains about it. That's good to know.

    I'm on wifi all day and never have an issue. I get around 15-16 hours and 5 hours SOT. I have an iPhone 6s plus also. The battery is much better with exact same usage. I never go below 20% and have gotten 18 hours. But that's the only thing that is better on iPhone. Note runs circles around it in every other aspect of the device.

    You'll love the Note 5 the only regret would be using Verizon they are stupid expensive they are anti consumer. They are the only hold out of wireless company's for Samsung pay which is a game changer in mobile payments. The reason they are a hold out for Samsung pay is because hate their customers but love there money. If I costs Verizon money and they won't make money on it even though its good for the customer they won't do it. If you stay on Verizon you will get marshmallow but you will be the last one to get it. Save yourself a lot of money and headaches and get off Verizon. T-mobile in my opinion is the best. But you'll love the Note 5

    None here. I moved up from the S4 and have zero regrets whatsoever. S4 used to get so hot I'd have to put it down. Sometimes it would roast my leg in pocket.

    Note 5 has been the coolest, temperature-wise, of any phone I've owned. My wife's S4 would drain in 3-4 hours at work if she didn't turn it on Airplane Mode. Note 5 goes through a full shift and she still has half a charge coming off shift.

    Mine's a keeper. Got the 64 gig, I know I'll need it.

    What have you liked about the note vs the iPhone? I purchased a 6s plus and it's been great but I definitely miss the android feel.

    The battery of the iPhone has been amazing and it's a very fast phone!

    I agree! If anyone can get coverage w T-Mobile, then switch.
    I did after they launched 700 MHz in my state and the difference in coverage is crazy. I'm slowly bringing all 5 line over from att.
    Fast updates, non branded devices, they keep settings stock like the int'l units, fast updates, no overages for data...

    No regrets so far. Great phone with numerous features built in it. Lovely build as well. The only regret is that they do not sell the 32gb model here in my country =(

    Google Pay works on all Androids, and VZW is now planning to authorize Samsung pay.

    I am coming from a Samsung S4, which I loved but it was a little long in the tooth. I wanted an S6, but was scared off by the reports of poor battery life. I then waited for the Nexus phones, and was disappointed that they didn't offer Qi (which is a feature I love) and I was annoyed that the Nexus 5X is a midranger.

    I had not planned on the Note because I am really not a phablet guy - I like smaller pocketable phones. But, the size hasn't be a major issue - its thin and fits in my pocket and it is not to wide to be uncomfortable. All in all, I would prefer a much smaller phone with a smaller screen, but I don't think this will be hard to live with at all.

    Otherwise, I love the phone. The screen is freaking gorgeous, its fast as heck, the build quality is top notch, and the main annoyances of touchwhiz were easy to defeat (I use Nova Launcher, and I themed the phone with the free material theme).

    Battery life has been superb for me. My S4 barely made it through the day, mainly because I always have a smartwatch attached to it and run lots of power eating apps. The Note has had no trouble making it from morning to bedtime though, which his all I really ask for.

    Overall, I'm really satisfied and would do it again.

    That new Droid Turbo 2 could make me regret it though!

    Hi all, and thank you again for the input. Based on your comments, I did in fact buy the Note 5 (Verizon) a few days ago. I'm using Nova Launcher instead of Touchwiz.

    So far, I am very glad to switch to the Note.

    My only criticisms, if you can call it that, thus far:

    - I miss having front-facing speakers.
    - The side edges of the screen are sensitive to any touch -- accidental or not (a review of the iPhone 6S+ by Mobile Tech Review said Apple found a way to minimize the unintentional touch).
    - The finger print reader is quick to reject my fingers if they aren't laid down just right -- a bit more annoying than on my iPad Air 2, but you guys told me to expect that.
    - I have experienced a bit of lag in some apps now and then, but no worries.

    Everything else is just awesome. I doubt I'll be returning it.
