    This was a purposeful (don't know why) decision of Youtube. Don't blame the Note 4 for it.
    Umm, I think that's why I said "More of a Youtube issue"...... But, given that the phone is capable of playing higher res video, shouldn't the manufacturer try to ensure that there's some content out there?

    Picked up my Note 4 on the 17th from AT&T. I love it and wish AT&T didn't remove the ear buds. I used Google Maps today and lost the GPS connection 3 times on a 30 minute drive, some trees but no tall buildings.

    The volume indicator moves from right to left when increasing the volume; this is different but tolerable and not sure if this is Samsung or KitKat.

    I setup an appointment and the calendar is OK until you enter a start date. The days are backwards.
    Screens hoots included

    I am using the 64gb Sandisk Ultra SD card from my Note 3 for a year & I am getting corrupt pictures from the camera!

    UPDATE: Later the pictures I took disappeared. Back to the date they started disappearing on my Note 3 : ( I was holding on VZ support line for 45 minutes & they were researching & got disconnected .... 2nd time on hold for 61 minutes not good! I disbled Google + & changed the 64gb Ultra out with another & will see what happens

    Good Luck to all, but I think we have some issues & maybe they will get fixed!

    Cheers, Jon

    Humor me: Tomorrow when everyone goes to work (or class, or to run errands, etc) plug in your destination into the GPS and see if it stays on you, GPS stays locked, etc. Then report back.

    When I try to use quick connect it says theres an update for it. Well, when I hit okay it takes me to the Samsung app store and says this product does not exist. If I hit cancel to decline the update, it will not allow me to use it. Basically, I have a dead link in my notification area with no way to remove it. Anyone else facing this?

    Very disappointed so far. I averaged 3 dropped calls a month at most with the Note 3, I have already had 9 dropped calls in the first 4 days. The external speaker is garbage, I am getting a lot of crackling sounds from it. People on the other end of my calls can't hear me talk as well. Other then that, the screen is great!!!!! May be switching to the dark side after this mess!
    The speaker is not garbage.

    If you read my post more clearly, you would have understood that I have a defective speaker. Clearly the speaker is not garbage when it works properly.

    Is it normal that the back light and menu light don't come on? When I hit the back button to go back on the browser, the Note 2 I had used to light up. I thought it would on the Note 4.

    Edit: I figured it out in the power saving mode. I had power saving mode on and it was restricted not to light up to save the battery.

    I read your post and did not get that your speaker was defective. But now that you say that, that would explain things. My speaker works pretty good. I just wish my ringtones were a little louder.

    My home screen widgets have stopped working again. For ex. the alarm clock widget can be tapped on to create an alarm but it won't update the widget. Restarting the device always seems to fix things though.

    Hope you guys understand what I'm saying.

    I love the device completely, it is amazing, but the only issue I am having is when I pair my LG headset to it. If I even move 5 feet away from the device, it will start going in and out and the person on the other end cant hear me. It worked to perfection on my Note 3 and my LG G3, but on the Note 4, no good. Other than that, amazing device and great choice!

    Has anyone had any issues with the camera and focusing on objects far off in the distance? Phone focuses fine close, but when I try to take a picture of, say, a sunrise, the camera loses focus.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    I don't think this is a problem. Just prioritize the area of the picture you want to be in sharper focus. Do this by placing your finger on the screen and move the focusing square to the area you want sharpest. In lower light situations, like sunrise or sunset, you don't have much depth of field and therefore, need to pick your spot of interest. In bright light, you will have greater depth of field and the entire picture, both foreground and background will be in sharp focus, even without prioritizing the focusing square.

    I kerp getting wifi authentication errors with my home router. When i try to sign back on using the password, it doesn't take the password and keeps promoting me to sign on. A reboot usually fixes it.I have an att uverse router.

    In my 2013 Toyota highlander playing music through Google play with bluetooth starts correctly showing the correct track, but if i try to change the track using the stereo controls the music pauses according to the stereo but it keeps playing with no sound on the phone. I have to reboot the phone for it to work again. I have tried to deleting the pairing many times with the same results.

    My note 2 worked flawless in both instances.

    I have a sandisk 64GB.

    Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-N910A using Tapatalk
    Mine did the same thing with a Sandisk 64GB card.....kept cycling through unmounting and mounting the SD card.....Popped in a friend's 16gb card and it worked fine..Looked on Amazon for a new SD card and saw they had the Samsung 64gb EVO card for $31. Figured a Samsung card should work perfect in a Samsung phone. Went to Best Buy where they were selling it for $89 and had them match the price. Walked out popped the new Samsung SD card in and now it works perfectly since....

    On a side note, I am pretty OCD when it comes to the display (mostly the richness and pop of the colors). I held the Note 4 next to my Note 3 and for the most part the Note 4 is better except for the reds. I noticed the reds and oranges of the Note 3 seem deeper and less washed ou than my Note 4 (I know first world problems). I think it might be the settings that Samsung provide for the display. The Note 4 seems pretty limited to choices...adaptive, cinema, photo and, basic....the Note 3 had all including dynamic which is what I always had it set on....I noticed that the Cinema on both seem to produce same results, wonder why Samsung removed the additional options for display. Anyone else OCD like me on their display and notice any deficiencies compared to your old Note 3?

    Is anyone having issues with sending and receiving colored emojis? If I send them they cannot be seen and same goes for if someone sends them to me. I have the Sprint variant.

    If this were the case, it would be great.

    The phone is simply not focusing, even I select an area to focus that is further away than a few feet. Like I posted in another post, I can focus on any other device in my household, but not the Note 4. It seems like maybe 1/10 times, it actually focuses on what I want it to.

    I haven't had any issues, but speaking with a Verizon rep 2 days ago, it sounds like there may be an update coming down the pike on October 27th. If it's anything like the AT&T or T-Mobile updates, there could be a refinement to the device's battery use.

    So far no interesting issues. The finger print reader doesn't work 100% of the time, and when it tried to read my girlfriend's heartbeat, it refused (I guess she's a zombie). I presume both of those things are either software issues or user error - no big deal.

    The biggest problem I have is that I don't think I'll ever be able to go back to a "normal" sized phone screen. First. World. Problems.

    Everything on my Verizon Note 4 seems to be working well. No GPS issues last night on an 8 mile trip using Google Maps and no dropped calls. Just from reading posts in this thread seems most of the issues are on AT&T.

    Return to your carriers store and compare your n4 to theirs. Perhaps there is something wrong with yours. Be sure removed the protective film from the lens.

    I am thoroughly enjoying my Note 4 after upgrading from the Note 3, I love the cleaner look and feel of TouchWiz. The only problem that I have encountered recently happened after I created certain folders in the app drawer. After restarting the phone, certain folders are ungrouped. Has anyone else seen this and knows why it happens, and is there a fix for it? Thanks in advance.
