    I Ordered my Samsung Galaxy Note 5 on 8/14/15 Pre-order through Verizon wireless Business account. To my surprise it arrived Monday 8/17/15. I was frustrated when I went from the Samsung Galaxy S5 to the Droid Turbo because Verizon has blocked all ways to get wi-fi working on the grandfathered data plan. I was always a stickler for being able to expand the memory with a micro SD card, but learned to live without it on the Droid. The processing speed is so much faster with the native built in storage, which I appreciate.
    The first app I tried out on Monday was the Fox-Fi (Pda net) app, and it worked flawlessly, including wireless function. I like that Samsung didn't go uber big, because I like that I can still fit the phone in my jeans side pocket. The Spigen case with kickstand actually arrived today, and it is very nice at protecting the phone, while keeping it very slim. The Stylus works great. I was contemplating a wireless charger, but not sure if it will work with a case installed on phone....Anyone that has experience with wireless chargers, I would like to know how well they wo
    Overall, I'm very happy.

    Glad to hear it,haven't used Fox-Fi in ages,but,nice to know it's functional should the occasion arise.

    My experience is the better docks will charge w/a case installed,with the TYLT & Samsung wireless docks being among the better ones available.
    I say go for the QI/PMA charging.
