    I was just about to settle on the Note 5 until I saw your comments. Now I am back in the middle again. The problem is that nothing is as good as the Note 7. Love the edge and I love the Stylus and use both of them daily. But I have to give one up.

    I think I am going to have to come to terms that I am going to be unhappy for the next year no matter which way I go.
    Once the Nougat update arrives, I think the S7E will have more of the feel of the Note7. I should be getting my S7E any minute now. Just the notification handling and Grace UX alone will be missed from the Note7.

    If Note 5 had Grace UX, I'd be happy. My loaner was a S7edge and I really liked it. I thought it was the perfect size and pretty damn fast, but again, it doesn't have Grace UX. I'm holding out for the LG V20. Then I'm eligible for a JUMP in late November.
    If you couldn't stand the S7E without Grace UX, you probably won't like whatever UI that LG is using. It seems like Samsung puts the most thought and features into their UI.
    Moto basically just adds to stock Android and doesn't really change the look. Others don't seem as intuitive.

    I'm about 90% sure I'm going (back) to the S7 edge. There's no black models in site so I'd get the gold. Looks good with a black case

    I am surprised AT&T is not still selling the Note 5 considering the customer base using the Note 7 and wanting a similar device. No Note 5 online from AT&T, yet they are still selling the 2+ year old Galaxy S5!

    ^This. I have been round and round with AT&T about them not having any Note5's. I replaced my wife's Note7 with the S7 Edge....she likes it a lot and I still have my Note7. I am very happy with my Note5, so much so I want to get another via a swap for my Note7 that I have yet to turn in. I am trying to get that second Note5 because the Note7 purchase in August was the BOGO promotion. I have just finished my Note5 restore and it is now the daily driver with the Note7 off and waiting to be swapped for another Note5. I will give it another week.

    My Note 5 just arrived from ebay, looks perfect, right now it's on the wireless charger. After it's charged I'll power it up and activate it on my Sprint plan and then return this beautiful phone. I already know I'll miss AOD and Grace UI, but for $299 I own it and will always have a backup phone.

    T-Mobile doesn't seem to have any Note 5's right now either. Maybe just sold out currently? They are not listed online. I called my 2 local T-Mobile's on Saturday. One did not have any. The other had 2 golds. I don't want gold. Will try again next weekend.

    I just noticed your post, I don't know if you found one yet sorry but the mobile site doesn't show me any quotes of my posts. Had to contact Sprint to get a SIM card because the phone came without it, but after I put it in I swapped it for my Note7 no problem. Just look for a Sprint note 5 on ebay and see what grabs you, seems the prices went up.

    It's not the Note 7 but it's a good phone, it's very similar and will hold me over until the next s-pen enabled device (whatever it's branded as). It also handles MM better than my Note Edge does.

    Cheers,

    RIP N7

    Tmobile isn't showing any more 5's available through them. I could get a used one but that always makes me nervous as a couple times I've gotten a phone with defects that way

    I got my N5 from the Bay and am happy with it (nice condition/functionality/battery performance) did not get the new box exp but I can live with that. I am on ATT, not sure what their TMO availability is.

    I love the Note 5. Temporarily using 32gig waiting on my 64gig. No other phone would work for me with having to surrender the Note7.
    No regrets getting this phone. Performs great. No lag, it's DECENT

    I'm quite happy with my note 5. Tried the S7 Edge nice. Battery life is great and fast looked good in all black, but it's not a note.
    So note is paid off and wife has a new S7 Edge (gold). There wasn't enough difference to move to note 7, for me. Not an edge fan. Just my .02

    Happy with a T-Mobile 64gb N5. I tried the S7 during the recall and the lack of the S-Pen was a deal breaker. Battery is lower then the Note S7 but overall very comparable device for enterprise usage. The S7/Edge are the run of the mill Samsung phones for the mass but the Notes offer so much more, hence the reason why I went with a N5 instead of the S7 series.... Can't wait until the N8 variant.

    I had N5 before N7. Loved it when I had it, but after N7 I can't go back. S7 edge is closer to N7 imo, without spen of course. I'll use the s7 edge till the next Note comes out.
    My BF is in agreement with you. He was amazed with the fact that he liked the curved edge as much as he did and feels as though he can't go back to note 5. He too said the S7 Edge will still give him the form factor he misses on the Note 7. His new toy until next Note phone comes out.

    Very happy with tmobile note5 64 gold. I've been using it for a while now as a replacement phone and it's been amazing... I have the regular s7 as well which is a really nice phone but I would choose the note5 over the s7 anyday of the week lol. I like the note much more than the other Samsung line of devices...

    All that depends on your apps, what you have installed in general and what you're using on the phone. Do you close all background apps? Do you make sure that the device isn't consuming a lot of ram? These are things you can check to figure out the problem you are experiencing with your device.

    I would've been considerably disappointed if the only model available from Tmobile was the 32gb version, way to small for today. I love my dark 64gb model but I would've gone gold if it had been an option.

    Overall very pleased. The grace UX would be nice and I loved the curved screen of the N7.
