    Do you think Samsung will still support the Note 5 in, say, 2017?

    I think they will probably through 2017 but I would doubt it beyond that. Wouldn't make sense to really.

    2017 makes sense as that would be about a two year timeframe. Not sure if the additional warranty option is available for the Note 5 or S6.
    Samsung's extended warranty program in the US covers drops, spills and much more | Android Central

    Now if the question is about how for many years will the Note 5 receive software updates? I think its two years, but maybe someone can find an official statement from Samsung about that.

    I would venture about 18 months to two years based on past Notes.

    I don't see the Note 5 going beyond Marshmallow.

    What makes you think that? It's a premium handset that's barely 4 months old.

    based on the inexcusable lack of updates after less than 2 years for all the Note
    phones I've owned in the last few years. (Note 2, Note 3, Note 4) Of course, if
    I want continuous OTA update supports, I would have gone with iPhones.

    Can the note 5 receive a text alert while being on a call I've missed messages when I'm on a call them when I get off the call and see that I have a message. I can hear the alert when not on a call so what setting needs to be set to hear the alert while on a call. I'm using verizon messages that came loaded on the phone. Help!

    I would agree. For example the Note 3 was upgraded to Lollipop and the last update appears will be 5.1.1. The note 5 was released with 5.xx and normally Samsung's record reflects one major update (major update being going from 5 to 6 for example). Will it get Android 7? Not likely but anything is possible.

    That, and the carriers also have to do work to test, update and roll out upgrades, and they can handle only so many at once
