    Hmm... I actually do have a question to OP:

    How does the phone feel in your pocket in terms of dimensions and heft? Do you ever feel that it is kind of heavy (drags down your pockets/pants) in your pockets?

    It's not heavy but it feels wide. I can't have it have it on my pocket while sitting on the couch or tying my shoelace.

    I'm guessing you wear tight pants? It doesn't seem that much wider than a lot of popular phones out there.

    How about with regular cut dress pants?

    I'm glad it doesn't feel heavy.

    If you only need one reason to root, it's multi window functionally. Get the apps you actually use into your multiwindows. I probably won't even power my N4 on till root is available, i think I'd get too frustrated trying to use a device w/o root.

    So far so good. Very impressive hardware. And the screen really is the main attraction. The only con that I have is on the UI. Everything was so big! I hope someday, Samsung can give the option to modify it or allow the apps to run in 7" tablet mode. I think that looks better. By the way, I never had a chance to use the default launcher because I installed Nova Launcher Prime from Day1. I'm really impressed with this device and I hope it will continue to do so as I use it. The chamfered edges makes the phone attractive. This is really a great media consumption device. Very easy to put in the pocket while having that very impressive screen.
    Can you comment about the speaker quality? I know it's in the rear but other than that has there been any improvement at all?

    Don't expect anything special about the speakers here. BlackBerry's Q10 and Z30 are I think the best on this department. Even better than the M8. But the screen really compliments the minor shortcomings of this phone.

    What screen protector do you got on there? Looks like tempered glass, and I was worried how tempered glass would work with the curved edges of the screen.

    But yours looks good! *If it is tempered glass.

    Has anyone seen any that fit around the phone perfectly? By that I mean does not have the U-shaped cut out. I am kinda OCD about things like that and from reading reviews on Amazon some that look like they fit perfectly don't.

    I noticed a not so smooth animation when I press the recent apps key. I'm not sure if this is android or samsung or nova's fault but it's just a very very little annoyance. I'm from ios and BB10 and animations on that OS are almost perfect. But still, this device is so beautiful and perfect for media consumption.
    I don't know if this will help but change the Nova setting for animation speed to "Faster than light". See if that helps.

    Try disabling s-voice using the nova setting for gestures and buttons. You can also disable animations when you enable developer mode. (google it) that really helpd speed things up.

    Or set them to 0.5x. Then you still have animations but faster.
