    I couldn't go to the smaller screen.
    The only thing with the smaller screen is carrying them.
    Once you take them out of your pocket.
    They are too small to look at or do anything with.

    I considered the S7 Active but could not go back to a smaller screen like that on top of the lack of an s-pen.

    Cheers,

    BestBuy has 10% off unlocked phones until October 19. They ended up matching B&H Photos and the phone cost was $450 before taxes. It was the SM-920G version and works flawlessly with TMobile. Please note that no WIFI calling or Samsung Pay is available with this version of the phone but for $270 less than what TMobile is advertising the phone for, i can certainly live without these features. I al also thinking of porting the Note 7 UX. The Phone has premium feel and wonderful to use. I have had iPhones since 2007 and do not miss their overpriced iCrap. I wish Sammy would provide note 5 owners with international versions a discount like the one proposed for the major carriers but $25 bill credit is better than nothing and at the end, the phone is $195 cheaper than what TMobile is charging their customers.
    Peace Douda1968,

    Question: to your knowledge, does the 'G' model support Tmobile's HSPA+ while yor on a call (since it doesnt support VoLTE)?

    I bought a Unlocked Note 5 .
    Went in and turned on Wifi calling.
    And it put the wifi icon on the pull down screen.

    One of my local Best Buys had two 64GB. A white and that gorgeous dark sapphire blue. I took the sapphire blue.
    Black sapphire. I am drooling. Lol
    Verizon is out of 64 gig till Nov 15th. I am using a gold 32 gig until then.

    My gold Note 5 64GB is on order. I will continue using my Note 7 until then. Its going to be hard giving it up. Lets hope Samsung brings the Always On Display function to the Note 5 sometime soon.

    It's a bummer that they are now somewhat hard to find, Likely because it's the closest to the N7 that can be found (Phablet with s-pen functionality)

    It's not the N7 but it's still holds its own. I was lucky enough to find a 64gb locally in t-mobile. The AOD was nice but overall the N5 is still a competitive device.

    I'm surprised. I hadn't needed to change tips or the spen itself throughout the yr and half I used it. It was never out of my hand. Maybe I have a light touch !
    I use my phone heavily and my S-pen a lot because I have a home based business, so that may be why.

    That seems to mean the Note 5 is still in production. I guess that makes sense.

    Well, Guess there are two possibilities: a. There is a stockpile of existing devices available for sale. b. There is still limited production of this device for replacements and for Samsung or other retail outlets to sell them (Possible since it is still available via the Samsung website) perhaps they would produce additional units if the demand is there. If they would become available from the carriers again, who can say..

    Cheers,

    If you appreciate the S Pen its certainly the device to go for.

    I went from the Note 5 to a iPhone 6s Plus then iphone SE lol.

    Was rocking a iPhone for about 4 months while my Note 5 sat in a drawer. I decided to pop my sim back in the N5 as a goof and haven't looked back since. I absolutely love this phone. It does everything I want and more. I prefer the screen, keyboard, back button, calendar, widgets, etc...over ios any day of the week!

    I was looking for a Note 7 to demo but they had all been recalled already, so no experience there. I had a couple of S7E's but didn't like the curved screen one bit.

    So yes, I'd definitely buy a Note 5 today!

    I am thrilled with the Note5. Can't wait for my 64gig tho. I really need more space and glad Verizon is being great about this whole ordeal. I was at our Cards game this past Monday participating in the National Anthem and halftime with cheerleaders.. Breast cancer game. . Camera on the phone is Awesome. And we had a great time

    I had a Note 7 and when faced with having to return it, because I'm a "Note" person, I purchased a Note 5... just received it today. Had Note 4 prior to trying to upgrade to the Note 7 and loved it; had passed on the Note 4's to the granddaughters, so my husband and I were stuck. We also have Note tablets -- needed to have that S pen b/c we are so used to it!! I think we'll be fine with the Note 5, though it was a challenge trying to find one since my carrier doesn't have them any more.

    I'm at Best Buy right now returning the Note 5. It is a good phone and did nothing wrong but I'm not married to the S-Pen and there are other, more contemporary, devices out there.

    You're returning the Note 5 - what are you getting in place of it
