    Tomorrow I'm going to try out the Side sync. I want to see how much better than Air Droid it is.

    In the quick settings when you slide downward from the top, if you long press on an icon it takes you into that setting.

    In the gallery app, when you have a grid of photos, you can swipe from the left to view your albums and if you pinch or expand with your fingers, you can adjust the view of how many column of photos you can see.

    In the camera app, aside from different mode features - I just stumbled upon the edit features of animating and creating collages from the roll (so without having to download different apps and go through multiple picture folders).

    One of my favorites widgets from the Note 4 is back and it looks like it received some refinement. The My Places widget allows you to create location based apps on your home screen and adjust user profile. For example, when I get into my car, I connect my Bluetooth and it automatically changes to my car settings with my car apps displayed. When I get to work, it automatically identifies my location through the GPS and turns on my WiFi to connect to my job's network, my volume is reduced to vibrate, and my work apps appear. When I'm at home it auto connects to my home wifi and I see the apps that I want to use at home.
    ^^This is great. What a great idea. But, I am curious looking at your screen image; how did you get the 2nd half - with the file names and the camera, T, and pen? Is that a different widget?

    You can schedule a phone restart.
    How do you do that?

    Mine is a Verizon model. Probably correct about not having it in Nova. I found it in Touchwiz in the widget drawer, I originally had it disabled via Package Disabler Pro, doh!
    But like I said I hardly ever use location unless I'm navigating, but good to know the option is there and wasn't one of the things to add to the list of ways Verizon strips the phones.
    Is there such a thing as a carrier unlocked note 5?

    That's the S-note widget. You get two options. And if you choose the bigger option you can make it full screen if you like.

    Wireless charging has become one of my favorite features of this phone. I bought one for home and the office. So convenient to be able to just put the phone on it and not fumble around with a charging cord.

    Gesture wake up is just like quick glance on the Note 3! Go to settings -> accessibility -> dexterity etc. And it should be there. Yay! No more having the press the button to turn the screen on to check for notifications!

    I like the reader option in the Samsung browser. Reminds me of the Safari browser for the iPhone.

    I love it too, but I can't figure it out why it isn't available in all the webpages, I mean I can't see any pattern, it appears in some Web pages that are not designed with articles and in others like this and other forums it doesn't show the Reader icon.

    Are you all having the same?

    I noticed that too. Can't figure it out. But it works great when it's an option.

    I resized chrome a couple times today and couldn't figure out exactly how to do it. I know it has something to do with dragging down from the top right but can't reproduce it. Any ideas?

    You can pull down from either top corner with the S-pen or your finger.
