Hi @asarokhan ,

Can you turn BT on?

If so, what happens? Does you "see" other BT devices or can other BT devices "see" you but not connect etc?

If not or it doesn't connect, have you tried starting the phone in safe mode to see if it works then?

The BT uses the same antenna as the WiFi and usually the BT controller chip is either on the same board as the WiFi controller chip or it is combined in the same chip.

Does the WiFi work OK away from the router or only if close by?

If only when close you may have to check the antenna connection in the phone as this would affect the BT also.

Here's a link to the ifixit Samsung Galaxy Note5 Motherboard Replacement guide.

Step.19 shows the antenna connections.
