You guys are killing me. Every time I get a notification I get all excited thinking is news about the Marshmallow update. J/k I'm glad you found out about the offers. LOL   Sent from my SM-N920P usi

My point is that its not central to his question and was unneeded.  I know plenty about power, distribution and heat. We can all imagine what happens when you push electricity into space, it's not as

Something major just happened! I just got samsung pay to work at sonic and a gas pump! They said it wouldnt work but I got it to work. You just have to really hold it next to it and move the phone all

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.

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.

I'm interested to see your feedback if it helps before I download it.

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.
