    I recently upgraded to a Galaxy Note5 (and Lollipop 5.1.1) but I HATE the phone interface on it (love everything else so far)! It's not intuitive, you can't long-press to get options, and I have to search for a "how to" every time I want to try something (for example, I want to long-press > add to existing contacts OR copy text/number).

    Are there any options? I'm not looking for a new launcher, UNLESS it resolves this issue.

    By phone interface... Do you mean the Dialer/contacts ... Or the whole thing?

    I guess the dialer and log parts of the phone feature...contacts is fine, but mainly, I can't long-press on a number in a log and get the options I had on my Note2. Currently, long-pressing a number in the log will only select it and then a "delete" option pops up in the upper right corner, but that's it.

    That sounds like a change to the Samsung dialer app (I say Samsung because it will be a Samsung app rather than a Google one, and also I still have that on my HTC). You could try a third party dialer and see whether it's any different.

    I don't think a launcher will do anything with this.

    Bless you! I guess I just didn't know it was called a "dialer" to search for a replacement. That WILL work (downloaded True Phone Dialer & Contacts and got some long-press options back)!
