    Yes, it's an impressive device (if a bit hindered by the very very very bad LG UI, which reminds me of an older version of TouchWiz now) BUT this thing rocks!

    No, literally. It rocks. As in it sways. I do a lot of typing on the phone while it's sitting on my desk, and yup, it rocks side to side as I type. Minor annoyance that can get pretty frustrating, so now I cant use SwiftKey's flow (yes, that Swype clone thing hehe) because the device will move a lot, so I have to either hold down the phone or pick it up and type 'normally'.

    Buy the G4 Desktop cradle only $19.99 on Amazon 😜😜😜😜

    Seriously one knew it had a curve right? And one would have a basic grasp on physics? 😜😜😜

    I hear a lot of people mentioning this, and it's a little weird to me because I can't remember the last phone that I had that didn't rock. The worst of them being my current device (OG Moto X) and I don't even notice it anymore.

    Note 4 doesn't 'rock'... it does move a little where the S-Pen fits in, but that's about it. This thing lifts up from the desk. And to Duncan's response.. yup. I knew the curved would cause it. I just didn't know it would throw me off so much.

    Just like my other post, with the double tap? Now I try to double tap everything to wake haha

    Yeah, that would help. Or a case, maybe. But then the point of the curved phone would be, well, pointless.

    Who's typing on their phones while it's laying on the desk? If you're going to be doing that, buy a bluetooth keyboard. That's a lot of typing for a phone. At least in my opinion which counts for diddly.

    I never said I type on it all the time. I'm working, doing anything else, and the phone is usually next to me on the desk. Interacting with it (and replying to messages) with one hand is usually the best way to go, which is why 'swiping' comes in handy, but the way the G4 rocks on a flat surface, even swiping becomes difficult.

    Hahaha... I'm sure someone will try to.

    Another scenario that just proved tricky with the curve on flat surfaces: Knock Code. Yup. Phone nearly flew (OK, it didn't take flight, but it did lift from the desk) after tapping the edge.

    Just because it rocks and I need to adjust my usage pattern? Yeah, I guess you're right haha but there's also 'good' on this phone to let it go that easily. No phone is perfect, after all.

    I do...a lot, on whatever flat surface I can find. I work construction, use it all the time with construction calculator apps. I knew this was going to be a problem, my GS3 laid nice and flat, so does the S6 with a thin case. In fact it's actually a big deal to me and one of my first criteria when choosing a phone. If it gets on my nerves enough I'll dump it for the S6, but that's a ways off.

    So far not noticing any real advantages or disadvantages to the "curve".
    I do not type on a flat service nor do I put the phone to my face (use an earpiece).
    I found that my G3 Seidio holster works with the G4 (without a case) so haven't had to go through the whole "find a holster, case, etc. combo that I like".
    I will probably get the leather back, tempered glass protector, camera lens protector and buy a quick circle case (pull the wireless charging parts and put them on the leather back)....and then I can call it a day.
    In fact I really didn't notice the curve, my pointed it out while I had it sitting on the kitchen counter.
    I guess I am too enamored with everything else....LOL

    Oh I bet -- I wasn't saying it wouldn't fit .. I just personally wouldn't want something that bulky when holding it.
