    I've noticed on the Telstra webby they are selling a 'Galaxy Note 5 Gold'
    But as far as I can tell the only difference is the memory? (64GB).

    Why are they selling it as a different model?
    Obviously they are charging a super premium for the extra 32GB but normally the size is just an option.

    Because when the Note 3 was first released, it was only available in 32GB. It was only recently they released the 64GB version, but only comes in gold. Hence this so called new, but same model number, Galaxy Note 5 Gold.

    Anyone else noticed a massive death in battery life recently (within the last month or so)? Running 6.0.1 with Android OS using 26%, Android System using 16% and Google Play Services using 9%

    My wife's Note 5 has always been pretty heavy on the battery, I just figured it's how they are.

    Mine was ok - would get a full day reasonably easily. All of a sudden though it's cut down to a little over half a day, with very little use (maybe 20 minutes screentime) before hitting 15ish% left
