Follow this guide to remove and replace the battery in your Samsung Galaxy Note5.
Before disassembling your phone, discharge the battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.
If your battery is swollen, take appropriate precautions. Do not heat your phone. If needed, you can use a dropper or syringe to inject isopropyl alcohol (90+%) around the edges of the back cover to weaken the adhesive. Swollen batteries can be very dangerous, so wear eye protection and exercise due caution, or take it to a professional if you're not sure how to proceed.
After completing this guide, calibrate your newly-installed battery.

Step 1 — Battery ¶
Slide an opening pick under the bottom edge of the battery to slowly pry it up from the case.
Step 2 ¶
Slide an opening pick up the side of the battery to break apart any remaining adhesive.
Step 3 ¶
Lift the battery out of the case.
Remove any remaining adhesive from the phone, and clean the glued areas with isopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth.
Secure the new battery with pre-cut adhesive or double-sided adhesive tape. In order to position it correctly, apply the new adhesive into the phone, not directly onto the battery. The adhesive should go around the perimeter of the battery compartment, but not in the rectangular cutout in the center (which is actually the back side of the display).
Press the battery firmly into place for 5-10 seconds.
