    I never used air gestures on my Samsung Galaxy S3 and it appears that Samsung is doing away with them on the Note 4, perhaps gone for good from all future Samsung phones? Who knows.

    Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review: Four of a kind - GSMArena.com
    " The IR gesture sensor of the Note 3 is gone as the Note 4 doesn't have the air gestures - obviously Samsung has decided that polishing those and making them usable isn't either feasible or worthwhile. "

    Anyone upset by this? Did you depend on the air gestures?

    I won't miss them. The only air gesture I ever used was Quick Glance.

    I used the palm swipe for screenshot all of the time, although the s-pen screenshot functionality is simple as well.

    The S Pen was so much faster. I use it all the time to take screenshots. I'm definitely looking forward to the new Smart Select feature though.

    I've seen videos of this working on the Note 4.

    I actually just watched a review of the Note 4 (DetroitBORG) on youtube and he used palm swipe to take a screenshot.

    You can also take a screen shot by pushing the power & home screen buttons at the same time.

    Although, doing a handswipe does help to clean the screen. :-)

    I'm pretty sure air gestures are under the accessibility menu.

    Try Settings > Device > Accessibility > Dexterity & interaction > Air wake up

    It wakes up the device to your lock screen with a wave of the hand. Still looking for the REAL air gesture screen.

    The feature that is NOT present is to answer the call by waving the hand. But I found that you can turn on Settings / Accessibility / Answering/ending calls, Using voice commands ON and then when the phone rings you can say "answer" and it works like a charm!

    I just learned about air gesture and am using it for waking up now. Also the screen shot thing works as well. I don't know about others but they may be in there somewhere or loadable via other apps since the hardware is same or better..

    Air gestures still work they're just hidden. Download nova launcher and hold down on the home screen. Click Shortcuts, then activities, then settings. Scroll until you find air gestures and then click it, enable what you want. You can uninstall nova and go back to twiz or other launcher and this will stick.

    Hi.
    I'm using air wake up to "wake up" my note 4. Howerver, it doesn't really smoothly wake up the phone all the time. Just wonder if that function does not work well, or because I use the cover that may affect to the sensor on the note's surface.
    Could you pls share your experience about this

    Air gesture is on the Note 4. It's in the accessibility menu under "Dexterity and interaction".
