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

    Ah thanks! To clarify for others, you have to drag either top corner diagonally (not down) toward the opposite corner.

    I'm not sure why carriers are disabling these features. It's one of the reasons I'm sticking with T-mobile. They don't disable awesome features, the bloat is minimal, no carrier branding, unlimited data, and upgrade every year.
    And you save data because there is no reception in the suburbs! Win - win!

    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 have mine enabled and it won't work.

    I saw a video saying the Note 5 can wirelessly screen cast to any computer monitor in the same wifi network without any additional adapters. Does anybody know about this and how it works (if it works)

    I believe that's side sync.

    It doesn't work with your monitor per se, it's an application that you must install in any PC or Mac and once in the same network it replicates your phone on the computer. This has been working in all PCs since last year, when it was released with the S4 it was only for the Samsung PCs but even then there was a workaround.

    It works great since then and now with latest updates it works even better and smoothly.

    OK, so where do I get it to install on my pc? Oh, just read reviews. Often freezes PC - bad. Also only picture on sound?

    Do a search here on the forms as I think I posted a link months ago. I just did a search on Google and for my surprise it seems that the links that were in the Samsung website disappeared. I just read that it comes in all Samsung PCs and now it costs $29.99 for the rest of PCs, that's a bummer.

    Anyways, te the search here in the forums or follow this link and download the version on it, it may be the same version. Samsung’s SideSync utility now works on all Windows computers - SamMobile

    I learned the hard way not to install software from other than official sources but thanks very much for the help.

    After reading the bad reviews in playstore I will pass. I also see it is only picture not sound so not useful to me for what I had in mind.

    I have a pc connected to my smart tv. I had hoped to remotely run app with bt mouse and watch netflix videos from phone to pc to tv but there would be no sound. I prefer not to use chromecast because all my tv hdmi inputs are already used up.

    Just had to add - I downloaded SideSync on my Mac, and was very disappointed. It did back up my Galaxy Note 5 files, and I can play with photos or set a restore (I think) ... but I can't actually see my phone/interact with it on the monitor or even fully connect to use it like the videos I've seen.

    I think you're confusing Sidesync with SmartSwitch that is the one that does the backup, restore and file transfers. SideSync will just replicate your phone on your computer.

    I hear you and I can understand your point, but let me assure you that the version you can get and install from that link is the Official one, Sammobile (a site dedicated to pure Samsung stuff) just pulled it and made it available so people can download it directly from them.

    I downloaded the version on the link, and after I installed it on my PC I can tell you that is the exact latest version my laptop updated to not long ago.

    Yup just drag from either corner of the screen diagonally across the screen. It'll take a few tries to find that 'sweet spot', cause I know that when I try to do it most of the time, I end up just opening my notification bar.

    Thanks. That was very thoughtful.
    Up for 2 days and nights with toothache while waiting for unrelated biopsy results....it's nice when someone does something nice when having a bad day.

    Sorry for whining. I'll try that tonight to keep myself busy. Busy is very good.
