    You're starting to regret switching because your new phone doesn't ALWAYS do something your iPhone NEVER can do? Huh.

    If the note battery is above a certain percentage, it won't fast charge. Not meant to.

    Try a different cable. I've read more than a few complaints about the fast charge being inconsistent. Supposedly it's tied to the cheap build quality of the stock cable. I've been using one from my old LG G2 and it's been perfect.

    If that doesn't solve it, call you're carrier or go back to the store and make arrangements for a replacement.

    Change the USB thin cable that came with the phone. Everyone had this issue. I am using my galaxy s4 wire now everytime it fast charge.

    Correct. It should be cable issue. A good cable can charge fast.

    It was the junk cable that came with it,i switched to my note 4 cable and never had a issue again. Side by side the cables are so different. The note 4 cord is twice as thick.

    I bought an aftermarket QC 3.0 charger and a cable from anker and it has gone from having to replug it 2-4 times to get fast charge, to 1-plug and bam I get fast charge.

    Until you get your heavier, better quality cable, try this: Leave the cable plugged into the phone, go the other end that has the USB male end and unplug it from the AC adapter. Then plug it back in and voila, fast charging. Works every time for me on my charger with the thinner cable.
