    I currently have the Note 4 and I'm thinking about upgrading. If the Note 5 freezes up, how do you reboot it? I've had this issue alot lately, especially with Facebook. The app will cause my phone to become unresponsive and the only way I know how to get it to work again is to take out the battery, reinsert it and reboot. Is there another way to reboot the phone without removing the battery if the phone locks up? I don't want to upgrade to a phone where I may have this issue.

    Fwiw, I've never had the Note 5 lock.

    I believe you can simulate a battery pull by holding down the power and home buttons. I have never had mine lock up on me either.

    Been a month and a half now, and no freezes or lockups. It's a solid phone!

    This is how you do it. It's called soft reset.

    I thought I would be hearing things like, "deal breaker" or "Samsung doesn't care." When I saw this thread. Thank you for asking a different question! I too have not had any problems with freezing and I've had mine since release date.

    Hold the power button and count to ten. It will reboot on its own.

    Haven't had any problems here either. I haven't had to yank a battery or do a hard reset on a Samsung device since the s4
