    It's been 3 months now, just wanted to see how happy everyone was with the note 5 as for myself I truly believe it's the best thing out!

    1 month here since i switched from my trusty iphone 6.

    I am seriously thinking about returning to ios because of several BIG problems I've encountered..
    1 of them is the constant 2-7 second freeze while unlocking the phone ( happens at least 2 times a day )
    Until now it seems that there isnt any fix for this even though the problem is well known.

    2nd thing would be the damn unlock button which started to get stuck. It still works but no more "click" when I press it ...

    Overall I belive to have made a mistake by switching from the old phone...

    So far I'm happy with it. It is so strange that everytime I stray from the Note series I convince myself that I don't need the s-pen, but as soon as I get another Note, I become enthralled with the s-pen all over again. I use it more than not. It really makes my smartphone experience completely different than from any other device.

    Loving it, came from the LG G4 and haven't looked back which is saying something because I bought the G4 for it's removable battery and SD support but this phone has made me a believer that there really can be a phone that doesn't need a removable battery. Haven't been able to kill it in a day yet.

    I'm like other people. I keep trying to stray away from the S pen but can't. Every time I leave it I go back to it. Overall is a great phone. I just wish Verizon would release an update that fixes my wifi searching issues at work. My nexus 6 doesn't have that issue

    I've had my Note 5 for 3 weeks and haven't witness any issues yet. I'm definitely enjoying my Note 5.

    If it didn't fast charge I would get rid of it because of my horrid standby time

    What variant do you have, because from what I've seen, only a small group have this issue.

    Had mine since release day. I had an issue with a T-Mobile update, but that has been corrected.

    I get great battery life, great standby and so far, it has been the best phone I've owned.

    International version? Yes, that seems to be what most people with the issue have. Have you talked to Samsung about it?

    Yes international version.
    I am unsure how to approach this matter and where exactly. Will look into it.
    The unlock button on the side is also pissing me off.

    Well if you are fortunate enough to have a Samsung store in your area, go there. If not, let me know where you are and I will find the Samsung Office you need to contact.

    I am thinking you got a bad unit. These are not common problems at all. I haven't experienced or heard of these issues until your post.

    The unlock button I haven't heard of, the freezing I have seen others with international versions saying they are experiencing that.

    Been using the t mobile note 5 for about a month and I really like it. I came from a nexus 5. Haven't used the spen much but it's useful when I do. I really like the screen and the overall size even with a tpu case is fine. My wife's s6 and my old nexus feel small now. The camera is great too.

    The only thing I don't like is I can't double tap a notification from the lock screen and go to the app when the phone is unlocked. I still need to slide to unlock (Google now voice commands won't go until I swipe either) for example when driving and is unlocked with trusted Bluetooth and I say ok Google send a text it'll acknowledge the request but not follow through until I swipe to unlock. Hardly a deal breaker

    That just might be possible. I will look for a fix regarding the freezing problem and stick with the phone until next year.

    I went from the Note 4 to the Note 5 and thought I could get by without the expandable memory and swappable battery but I just couldn't. I figured I was just going to stick it out until next year and see what new offerings are available but then I saw the LG V10 and decided to get that instead. I also missed having the IR blaster.....another feature removed from the Note 5. Don't get me wrong, I loved the performance, the screen and the UI but just disappointed in Samsung. I feel like in some ways I was downgrading going from the Note 4 to the Note 5.
