Galaxy Note 5 gets an update with battery, other improvements

Despite all its limitations compared to existing devices in the lineup, the Galaxy Note 5 is the best phablet in the market today, and Samsung is now making it even better with a 144.2 MB update that brings improvements to battery, call stability and security. This is the first update to the Galaxy Note 5 since it went on sale, not counting the one that US carrier T-Mobile sent out to the device to enable Samsung Pay.

Improved battery life is the most notable part of the changelog – the Note 5 already has respectable battery life despite the not-so-large battery inside, and this update should make things better. It’s currently rolling out in Singapore with build number N920IDVU2AOJ4, and it shouldn’t be long before we see it making its way to the device in other markets (which is a short list since the phone hasn’t been launched in quite a few major markets around the world.) This doesn’t seem to be the major update that our insiders said the Note 5 and other recent Samsung devices will be getting, but it’s still an important one nonetheless.

If you own a Galaxy Note 5, watch out for the notification that signals the update’s arrival. We have the entire firmware available in our firmware database for a manual upgrade, and you can mash the Update now button in the Settings » About device » Software update menu if you don’t wish to take the manual route.

I just received a notification about software update on my s6 edge plus, I don’t know what this is about, but it may be those improvements that you mention.

Let’s make Samsung promote customer service and support. Search for the page ”Android 6 for Note 3” on Facebook. There you will find great instructions to get what we deserve.

However this update did not solve my battery drain problem due to “Android OS” staying awake.

Waiting for a new update in Turkey.

I got the Note5 yesterday. I think I’m more in love with it than I am with my Note 4

Excellent! Do you by any chance know if a similar update is being pushed to the S6 Edge +? (first Sammobile-comment from me, been checking your site every day for 2 years now!)
I upgraded from the (IMO terrible) Nexus 6 to the Galaxy S6 Edge + and have never been happier with my smartphone!
