    Title kinda says it all. I wanted a note 7 but given what's going on I am looking at getting a note 5 for half the cost. Those of you with a note 5 does yours still work great and would you recommend?

    Yes I would. I've had mine for quite awhile and I have had 0 problems. In fact, I never considered the 7 because I like my 5.

    Most definitely. I have had mine several months and for a phone that came last year it still feels cutting edge and premium. I still love it .

    My Note 5 64GB version does all I need it to do. It's been a phenomenal phone and am glad that I never upgraded to the Note 7.

    Same here. I love my Note 5. Usually I want the newest Samsung phone but didn't get the Note 7 because I love this phone so much. Super happy I didn't jump on that boat!

    Without a doubt. I've been using my Note 5 more than my S7 Edge lately. Great phone.

    I had $350 saved to put down on a note 7. Then realized that most of the features I was looking for was already in the note 5. Coming from a 64gb s6 I started looking for a 64gb note 5. Found one in mint condition on ebay. And the kicker? It was $350. Now I don't have a installment payment on my cell bill. And a great phone to boot.

    I sure would. It's a great device and doesn't have the negativity surrounding it that the 7 has.

    I had /have the N7. But knowing it will become disabled shortly without any phone service, or support, yesterday I called Verizon to see if they had N5s available. I can't give up my SPen and i have a samsung tablet, etc. so I'm entrenched in Samsung. Iphone I would never never never contemplate. I will say, the N7 is something beyond comprehension if you haven't had and used it. So many things I wouldn't even know where to begin. But the closest thing to it is the N5. So through verizon I'm getting the gold Note 5 with a gift box that includes wireless charger, car charger, screen protector, Otterbox case in color of my choice (pink) and something else that I can't remember. It was sent out overnight delivery so I'll be getting it today. I couldn't leave the note. When the N8 comes out I'll be the 1st in line.. I just hope that after the 7 I'm not going to be more sad than i already am.

    Do u mean You love the s7 edge or the N7? I didn't turn in my N7. I bought it outright when pre-ordering and LOVE it to the point of not being able to let it go.. yet. Just as ALL of us who had it feel. Anything other than a note I know i wouldn't be happy with. I thought about and talked about what to do to the point of obsession . My husbands not talking to me! I can't even bring up the situation without a war. He's ignorant about these things, , & WON'T use a mobile phone AT ALL. technology passed him by to the point he doesn't know how to get voice messages on his flip top phone I got him last yr. in case of an emergency. No, he's not 100 yrs old, he's just stubborn beyond belief & doesn't want to learn or be bothered . I'm the opposite. Anyway,... Once I get the the N5 today I'll have it activated. I really don't want to be without the Spen, the size, the note in general, etc. I'm hoping I can get some of the 7s functions through the play Store or Samsung downloads. Im also hoping they'll give the N5 some extra attention bc as of now it's their latest in the note series. I'd think they'd want to keep customers happy, hoping they'll move up to the N8 when its out . Once I get my 5 activated I don't know what I'll do with the 7. There's nothing I want other than the note. The 5, for me , is the best phone out right now. I tried to like the 7 edge. But it kept coming back to the same issue - no spen, it felt a lot smaller, etc. I don't know if I made the right decision. But I had to make one. I feel completely safe with my 7 but I'm sure phone service will be cut off soon. IF when using it at home (until I figure out what to put the $refund to once I do bring the 7 back) , it should happen to smoke, as doubtful as that may be, I don't want my face or ear set on fire!! So I guess I'm just buying time this way to figure it all out. I'll use my new /older Note 5 and hope a note 8 will come back sooner rather than later . Then use the refund $ toward the N8 - or whatever they may change the name to! Does that sound rational?? It's complicated, & frustrating.

    I loved the Note 7. I liked the s7edge but it was a little too much edge and no pen. I really like the Note 5 flat screen. I too am.phone obsessed and husband just shakes his head at me.

    The 5 has edge panels, right? If didn't even occur to me to find out. I just assumed it did. I went from N4 to 7. Skipped the 5 bc I didn't see that much of a change between them.

    The Note 5 has a flat screen with a small border around the frame. It doesn't have edge tech

    Thank u. Really loved the panels.😠a little disappointed. But I do agree, at times the rounded edges can be annoying. It's worth it to keep the spen. Can't have it all - obviously!

    I had the Note 7. first note phone I owned. Got it because I liked it's shape better than the S7 Edge, and wanted to try the Stylus.
    I had is for THREE DAYS before the Note 7 was canceled. So...I was bummed, but replaced it with the note 5, because even after 3 days, the Stylus won me over, and the Note 5 was as close to the Note 7 as I could get.

    Overall, pretty happy with it. Somewhat miss the AOD, and the screen was certainly better on the Note 7 (which is amazing, because the note 5 screen is amazing in it's own right!)
    So yes, seeing as how I got the Note 5 yesterday, I would get the note 5 today.

    The Note 5 kinda hit the radar when I started planning next year's phone replacement (so long iPhone 6). But to be honest, it has steadily moved up the list as time has passed. It's a solid device, still available with financing, and can match many of it's competitors in key areas. Further, I have become increasingly hesitant to drop $860+ on a phone that has the big screen I want, but a lot of other features I can live without. I would have considered the Note 7 at that range, but none of the new 5.5+ in. phones do it for me. The iPhone is... an iPhone and the V20 and Pixel are nice, but not $36.00 a month nice. Best Buy ran the Moto Z Droid on a super sale last month, and I would have to consider anything like that if available at the time of purchase, but for the money, I think the Note 5 may be the best bet. I'd like expandable storage, but its not a disqualifier.

    I've not totally ruled out a Note 4
