This phone can be so weird sometimes, the last few weeks have been terrible for battery life I was to the point of doing a clean install but all of the sudden it's great again wth lol.

I wonder what the chance is that Samsung will give the Note 5 all the software features that were in the Note 7? Like always on display, blue light filter, secure folder, etc. I think it would be great for them to do it, since the 7 was canceled. Has anyone come across any articles that say it may or will happen?

Would love for that to happen.

Anyone have a issue when typing after you use the sym button for the $ sign then try to type 3 it puts another $ sign. Same thing with a .(period) and 8. It randomly happens and have cleared cache and reset keyboard settings to no avail. Thanks.

I use SwiftKey and haven't had that issue. I assume you are referring to the stock keyboard?

We reset the phone and somewhat fixed the issue but he's gonna trade up to a s7e, he knows how to factory reset it but he said there is a code you type into the dialer that resets it again? Or something like that. Thanks guys.

I don't think we'll get any of that unfortunately.

Maybe you guys already know this, but I didn't and stumbled upon this recently, no idea when it was added or if it was already always there.  

 

Did you know you can put 30 different photos on your lock screen and it'll cycle through them like a screen saver every time you unlock your phone?  

 

It's different than the Google's daydream feature, I think, but a different implementation of it?  Anyways, it's made my Note5 feel new to me, funny how a little thing can do that.

Anyone having weird battery issues? Just got to work didn't use it on the way in so I was at 100%. Figured I would do a quick cache wipe and went through the whole process. Phone booted up to 80% battery like wtf there is no way for that to be possible.

Yep! Past days I've been having that quick drain again we've discussed on here. I was on mine this morning browsing, and reading some NFL news on way to work on the train for about 15 min, and was down to 83% after a full charge. Did some more news browsing during lunch for about 20 min, and by the time I got home after work, I was down to 15%. What's going on?

Google play services is a big drain for me, but it still doesn't explain that sudden 20% drop in 3 minutes time.

Play Services 10.0.84 (440-137749526) update (on apkmirror here) is doing a lot better on my phone, plus they've got some enhancements for chromecasting in there as well.

Actually, I've just started having issues where I can't toggle my WiFi easily. Rolled back GP Services and all is better. Probably wait on updating.

    • Band 5 LTE is being shut down to deploy NR in the CLR block. AT&T doesn't have free spectrum anywhere else. 
    • Well... They haven't been back to finish the tower. It's still looks the same today as it does when I took those pictures. According to someone from Reddit, which I shall take with a grain of salt, the crew made various safety violations on that tower and that they were probably kicked out of the market. So maybe that's why it remains unfinished? It does seem weird that they just up and left leaving wires just hanging. This is the photo I posted in /r/CellTowers   Side note: I noticed Band 5 LTE going away in some areas. A tower in Bittinger, MD previously had Band 5 LTE and now it no longer does. It still has band 2 and 17 and no aggregation, at least not with my phone. I think it used CA with my ZTE MF288 modem. The Band 2 has 15 MHz bandwidth and hits 80 Mbps no problem.
    • I finally got around to an actual test, in the same location, first with 5G enabled, 7.42 D/L and 0.07 U/l 45ms ping.  Then just a couple minutes later, after the reboot from switching to LTE/CDMA mode, 33.8 D/L and 6.31 U/L with a similar 44ms ping.  This was pretty far from the tower, but I've noticed similar differences in many locations.  Also, I have not had a verified connection to n71 in about 5 days, looking in the *#0011# screen, while a speedtest, or other data in use.
    • Another beta update to SignalCheck Pro is rolling out! Version 4.614b will appear on Google Play sometime over the next several hours. More 5G improvements, the accent color should be fixed, and several Samsung shortcut menus were added. Samsung users, please try all of the new shortcuts and let me know which ones are useful and what they lead to. Thank you!
    • No, unfortunately I haven't seen any useful 5G info from your phone (or anyone else's LG) yet. If you get a software update and happen to find 5G before they shut it down, please try reporting again! The accent color is still in its infancy and only appears on LTE for now. I've had it on my version of SCP for several weeks, initially I didn't think anyone else would like it. Figured I'd offer it up and see what the feedback was.
