Samsung's website, or perhaps Noel Leeming etc.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Probably quicker to get it from Ebay and just pay priority shipping.

psychrn:
networkn: So I have my new note, I am really liking it, maybe the most of any recent phone in the past few years. The size isn't concerning me EXCEPT for one thing which is really annoying me. 

The left button which lists the apps, I hit it all the time when I am gaming because I "lean" on the button as I stretch my right hand over to press buttons. 

Is there a way to : 

1) disable this button or change it's purpose?
2) Disable it whilst in specific apps?


Yes thats the one change that I have noticed too. I still have the Old Note 3 so will compare in more detail and try a work around


I guess I'm used to this on Samsung phones but notice that every time IK give phone to Apple user to views pics etc they hit the capacitive buttons. Not sure why Samsung don't do something about it.

As a work around you can 'pin' an app \which locks everything else out including the capacitive buttons. To release just hold 'recents' (left) button.

If you don't have this on already go to settings - lock screen and security - other security settings > set pin windows to on.

Once selected,  start up the app you want to pin then go to "recents" (left hand ) button and you should see a 'pin' select that and it will take over screen. From memory nothing works until you unpin.

Sure hope so. Saw some of the beta S6 changelog and it seems like quite a improvement.

Just had the phone call from my local Spark retail outlet.

 

They have received confirmation from Telegistics that they have found the fault with my Near New Note 5. But unfortunately it will not be under warranty as the Moisture tab has been tripped.

 

I dont believe this as its never been near water been in in its case near day one.

 

Cost of $350 and will be ready for pick up later this week.

 

Good quick service.

 

They said they can provide the photo of proof if necessary. How often and easy is this going to happen??

 

The only thing I can think of is sweat from being in my pocket??
