As I have said previously, my phone on marshmallow is just the same on LTE as it was on lollipop. Don't know why some are having issues.

Do your phone switch often to 3g in your market or says on LTE majority of the time? That happens only when switches over to 3g, it takes a long time to get it back to LTE on areas were you know there's LTE signal

Same here nothing has change since then!

I see 3G rarely, 99.9% of the time I am on LTE.

Wish I was that lucky. Where I live does have great LTE coverage & I tend to stay on LTE about 85% of the time however does drop to 3G at times. Note 5 does take sometime to go back to LTE after connecting to 3G.

After using the update for several weeks I notice the RF is not as strong as before. I drop to 3G a lot more and takes longer to go back to LTE.

a trick i like to use is to use the home button to wake up the phone, and leave the thumb on the button for the fingerprint, rather than using the power button and then try to fingerprint.  seems to help

This is what I do and have done since the day I got the Note5 on launch.  The fingerprint sensor is definitely slower / not as quick to recognize my print.  Sure it's probably 0.01 seconds slower but I find myself having to go to 2, 3, 4 attempts to get it to unlock.  I've even retrained all my prints.  Unfortunate really, but I'll survive.

Does anyone know how to get rid of the annoying Flipboard briefing, and/or disable it period? I can't find the app, unless it's built in somewhere. The only option I have is turning briefing off, but even when it's still off, I still get alerts on top if my screen. This is all I'm working with.

You should clear the data for the app in settings> application manager

Then diasble. I dont think you can uninstall since its a system app

Unless you are rooted, there are ways to uninstall it...

Clearing data, force close, then disable should do the trick

The note 5 is one of the strongest band 26 performers around. If your only getting LTE around 85% of the time then it is a general coverage issue and every device is going to be like that.

I have not. Use it everyday and it's been fine.  Like you just can't get a GPS lock?  Use an app like GPS test to see if you're having issues with GPS in general.

Anyone else noticing 3G more often or is it just me? my typical ride to and from work I would be on LTE 99% of the time except for one spot where even Verizon loses signal, but now I am going onto 3G about 50% of the time which makes streaming Spotify a stuttering nightmare. Started happening about a week ago, when I am at home things are as peachy as ever. Maybe they are doing some optimization on the towers or something? or they turned down the power for some reason I don't know.

That is not the problem, the problem is losing LTE in places I never did in the past.

    • The last time I did that on my S10+ and I went back into that menu, the toggles had been reset to their default positions automatically.
    • Jumping off of my previous issue with VoLTE with Verizon customers. It seems like Sprint to Sprint HD voice works fine both for incoming and outgoing calls but with Verizon users, it won't activate unless I call the person. Incoming calls from Verizon sound horrible.
    • That would involve another lengthy merger proposal with the FCC and DOJ.   Another 2 years wasted.   A possible new administration...  IDK.... don't like that idea.    Who's going to teach them  how to run a network?   (LOL)... please don't say ....    
    • A solution to what exactly?  anti-competitive?  Well when it is to buy or not to buy, the only answer is not to buy. I guess the judge is considering Dish's prospective. Will they get the job done.  I think, with deadlines so near, and them owning spectrum for so long, we have to look at intent.  So far, with the lack of building anything, that shows pretty solid intent right there.  As soon as the carriers get spectrum, they toss that stuff up on towers asap. Look how much has been deployed for B66, B71, B14. Look how much 5G is already deployed.  Dish, in the last year before deadlines annouced 1, maybe 1.5billion for an IoT network.    I was actually kinda thinking about this. Dish needs to be willing to buy Sprint's entire network. Sprint essentially stays as is, minus spectrum licenses and postpaid customers.
