    I've found the quality of the cable to be not so great. I connected it to my computer the other day after only owning it for two months and the connection kept connecting and disconnecting.

    Some of these bugs are the reason I left my note 5 already. I love the phone and hope an update will fix the fast charging bug and WiFi cell standby issue on Verizon. For now I carry a moto x pure waiting on bug fixes. I feel like I waisted 700$ plus on this unreliable device

    I was bothered a bit by the fast charging bug, but my first two Note 5 devices had a Bluetooth bug. I exchanged them under my warranty with T-Mobile and finally got (the 3rd copy) a unit that has no issue with the Bluetooth or fast charging. I have no doubt there will be an OTA fix for both issues eventually, One thing is for sure, it is not inherent in the Note 5 it varies from unit to unit. The Bluetooth bug was far more problematic than the fast charging issue.

    I wouldn't let the fast charging bug prevent me from enjoying the device, I wouldn't have exchanged my phone if that was the only issue. Two reasons: First, fast charging isn't really that much faster. Second, I don't think fast charging is healthy for the longevity of the battery. Fast charging will inevitably shorten the life of the battery.

    I have my Galaxy S5 on standby, I bought the Note 5 as an experiment while I took my sweet time fixing a software glitch in the S5 thinking I would return the Note 5 after the S5 was setup just the way I like it. One problem - I fell in love with the Note 5. It is so much faster, so much slicker than any device I have looked at, and with the stylus it is invaluable to me in my small business. Some of the notes I jotted down on the run have been extremely important to my financial well being. The Note 5 far from being a "wasted $700" it has actually paid for itself and then some.

    I get it ..I love the device as well. However I can't always charge my phone because of the WiFi and cell stand by bug. My wireless charging stopped working and I had to factory reset to correct it. I hope a software update does fix it. Believe me I love Samsung pay and the S pen rocks. Now they just need to make it work correctly all the time

    Thanks for the responses guys! Just to be clear I've tried several different cables, and one of the OEM chargers that quit working was the Note 4 charger which has a thicker cable.

    I uninstalled updates for samsung galaxy apps in applications settings and fast charging worked again. The updates seem to be creating a conflict with usb port.
