I am working in fixing my own Note 5. I have heard that double-sided tape made specifically for this task are best. You can find different options here: https://www.magazingsm.ro/adeziv-geam-si...

I have now replaced the display on my Note 5 and actually I didn’t even use the glue I bought. The original glue is quite a lot and the new display comes with glue on the back of it. Thanks again, Alexander, for your helpful instructions!
