    I have had my Note 4 for a month with no problems. Today while I was watching TV with my phone sitting on the coffee table the screen lit up, Goggle search came on with references to the show I was watching. A little time passed, the screen lit again, this time Goggle was talking. I wasn't quick enough to catch what she said, but the screen showed references to another TV show that was on. A little time passed, the screen lit up, the phone was dialing, nine numbers, not ten, Verizon came on to tell me that was not a valid number please try again. This all took place within about one and one half hours. I have never had this happen on any phone. I am not tech say enough to even begin to know how to solve a problem such as this.

    Ok Google was probably listening to the show that you were watching. Which is hilarious and kinda creepy. And it was probably interpreting sounds it heard on the television as commands. Just turn off ok google and the voice activated services.

    Just a list of my current issues with my 7 month old Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (AT&T)
    1. Major GPS issues- The GPS issues render the maps/ waze unusable. The Arrow would stay still and not always be synced.
    2A. Lag- I feel like this comes with a lot of Android phones I have used, but this for some reason has been particularly bad. I would unlock the phone for example by swiping and it would play the sound like it unlocked then the screen would go off like I did not unlock it, then I would press the home button and the phone screen would come on like it was not even locked.

    2B. Music Equalizer lag- The equalizer settings would apply in the middle of songs instead of a seamless start from the beginning.

    There are a few more little things but I think that it could be associated with the Android 5/ Lollypop update because the phone was running fine on Kit Kat before, (except for the GPS, that has always been whack even on my old Galaxy S4). These problems are getting so annoying that I am considering jumping ship back to Apple. I have had an iPhone before and never had these stupid problems. This is my third Android device BTW.

    Where do I begin? I got my Note 4 back in December. It replaced my iPhone 4s. I was delighted with the thing. About a month ago, late June or early July, it started having the following problems:

    1. Unable to receive calls intermittently
    2. Unable to make calls intermittently
    3. Intermittent dropping of calls
    4. Unable to send text messages

    This phone has made my life a living hell over the past 4 weeks or so. I can't rely on getting a phone call from a prospective employer. I was doing a phone interview today and the thing just decided to drop the call. I took it to where I got it, the AT&T store, and of course it wasn't their problem. They sent me clean to hell and gone across town to the official "Device Service Center". There, I encountered a nice enough young fellow who said the problem was because I had been using an iPhone previously. HUH????? Anyway, he ran some diagnostics, did an OS upgrade, and managed to wipe out all of the aftermarket Apps that I had gotten. Lo and behold! The phone is still fouled up. I want to be rid of this POS (not Point-of-Sale) so bad I can taste it. I have no idea how this piece of hardware survived any sort of reasonable QA. It is hideous and now I am stuck with it. Scheisse!

    If you didn't physically damage the phone, you have a one year manufacturers warranty. It's hard to believe there were no issues, then all of the sudden all of these issues without something changing. Were you on 5.0.1 for a while before these issues starting popping up? That's usually the culprit. If you were and didn't drop it or subject it to any water, I would call your carrier (not go into a store), explain the issue and tell them you want a warranty replacement. If their service center couldn't fix it and wiped it and installed the latest OS and you are still having issues, they would have to replace it for you.
    Good luck!

    Verizon user here. I've had my note 4 since it came out for verizon. Right away I had an issue connecting to my wifi. Had to purchase a new router for it to work right. Everything was fine after that for awhile. Now in the last 2 months or so, the gps is just horrible. It seems like I never have 4g. And the phone doesn't work in 3g or under. I am always using my gps for my job, and have been in these areas for the last 4 years and never had a problem getting 4g. Now all of a sudden, the phone doesn't want to work in some areas.

    I am the UK and purchased Note 4 in June. I love my phone but since upgrade on lollipop my text messages sound does not work - emails etc loud and clear. Everything is set as it should be and I have had my daughter, an S6 owner, who is phone savvy look at it for 2hrs, her IT savvy husband and my phone carrier team look at it. All are mystified. I contacted Amazon from whom I bought it - they advised me to contact Samsung - this I have just done and await reply. In my research I have come across other Samsung Note owners and even some S6 owners with same issue - I'm pretty sure its a bug. Will let you know what Samsung say. Ultimately if all else fails I will go back to Amazon for a replacement as this is extremely annoying, I have to keep checking phone for message replies and if anyone messages me unexpectedly I am completely oblivious until I look at my phone!

    I have seen lots of people complain about battery life. I think for a phone of its capabilities the battery life is good. Full battery lasts pretty much all day depending on use, and I use it moderately heavy. The fast charger is unbelievably quick - I have downloaded various CM apps that help ensure I'm not wasting battery and notify me if apps are wasting battery. I close apps not in use, delete or force stop those I never use. I have background data set to restricted and screen buttons such as brightness set to moderate. I think with a bit of work in setting your phone up the Note is a lovely phone -photos are superb, screen and sound are brilliant. I love that there are controls for various sounds i e ringtone and media - just wish my message tone worked - an issue I am currently pursuing - but quite happy with battery life 😆
