I have been having crappy WiFi connection on my Note 5 for a couple weeks now that could only be resolved (most of the time) by restarting my phone. Yesterday I checked to see if there was a system update, and low and behold there was. So, being STUPID I did the update. The WiFi problem isn't any better and so far this morning (it's 11:15am) my phone has restarted itself 3 times. WTF!?
Totally agree. Mine is doing the very same thing. I have gotten to a point of turning my Note 5 off. I've done so because I refuse to ruin my phone with constant recharges with a completely unstable OS. I called Verizon tech support yesterday, and they pointed the finger at Samsung for this release. Verizon offered to send a refurbished phone to me as a consolation/replacement since mine is still under warranty. I told Verizon's tech support rep, "hell to the naw!" My Note 5 worked perfectly fine before this update, is stored in a UAG case with tempered glass screen cover. I refuse to send in a device I've taken good care of for someone else turned-in/repaired junk.
Verizon, Google and SAMSUNG have to do better than this with a FLAGSHIP device. I'm shocked neither of these organizations are EVEN ISSUING STATEMENTS to customers about their fix for this mess. But then again, maybe they have a desire for more class action law suits. At this rate, they may well have one (or two or three).
