    I received mine yesterday and took it to Verizon to activate and put on a tempered glass I purchased online. They had only received 1 tempered glass so it was no problem having them install it. I really like what I see so far. The phone is fantastic. Now to remember how to set everything up. It has been a couple of years since I had an android phone.
    What did you use before it?

    Long story, I had a note 2 for about a month. I did not like the camera (maybe I did not learn to use it properly) so I gave the note 2 to my sister and got an iphone 5. I discovered very quickly that I had made a mistake; but my sister loved the note 2; so I waited until my contract allowed me to switch to the note 4.
    I think I have to take a look at the manual. I cannot remember where to set up apps to only use wifi not cellular, or to set up which apps to allow notifications. Love the phone so far, I did not even need to use my ipad air last night. The screen is great.

    Got mine yesterday. Met the FedEx guy in the parking lot. Couldn't wait for him to get off the truck! My wifi at home is not working well so I brought mine into work to get it activated over the phone and for work to get it connected to their network wifi. The IT guy (former neighbor) drooled over it! He played around with the pen and decided that he would get it over the 6+. He has the S4 currently, which is what I upgraded from. I want to play with it instead of working!

    People usually comment when they see me pull out the pen. That's when they realize what a serious device I have. Have you noticed though that it is slower than your iPhone 6?

    Not necessarily slower but less fluid. I see occasional stuttering where I don't see it on the iPhone 6 at all.

    The only place where I see a marked difference is in how it grabs a signal and how it holds on. The iPhone 6 handles that better.

    That said, this is still an awesome phone and I'm extremely happy with it.

    I have been comparing the two in the last 24 hours and it has been interesting. These are two monster devices.

    They are! You've got the Plus, I've only got the 6. But yeah, even the 6 is fantastic. I have to get used to the larger size so I can go Plus next year. 😆

    The experiences are very different though. I can only keep one so I'm trying to figure out which one meets my needs best.

    I just jumped back to Android after being on Windows Phone for the last two years. I really like Windows phone and it was hard to switch. But the Note 4 will do everything I could on my HTC 8x. Prior to the 8x, I had the Galaxy Nexus.

    Gotta admit that coming back to Android from Windows is hard. Personally, I prefer the Windows OS better. But, I can do so much more with the Note 4. The main selling point is the stylus. I have a Surface Pro 3 and I am addicted to using a stylus to take notes in meetings. With the Note 4, I can now take notes a lunch and have them sync with OneNote. I was really glad to see that Android has all the Windows apps I need to make the switch less painful - OneNote, OneDrive, MSOffice, etc.

    So far, I really like the Note 4. Now I just gotta get used to Android again and I will be all set. One thing I haven't seen/found yet are the Widgets. On my Nexus, they were located with the Apps. But in Apps, I don't see widgets. I haven't looked too hard yet so I'm sure they're there somewhere.

    Picked up my black Verizon N4 at best buy yesterday. I traded in a 2007 vintage Moto Q for the $200 gift card and also had a coupon for $20 off $200. My total cost yesterday for the phone was $49 and change. I then traded an iPhone 4s and an iPhone 5 for $275 on a bb gift card. I then purchased a moto360 with that gift card and also used a $10 coupon and ended up with $17 left on the gift card. That felt like a total victory after what seemed like and endless wait for the N4. This is my first experience with android but back in my comp sci college days I wrote my compiler project in gnu c on my own Linux box so it fells good to be back in the world of open source and out of the fruit prison. Hope everyone is enjoying their phone!

    I am debating getting the Note 4. I have a 6 Plus now but am missing some of the Android benefits. I do LOVE the 6 Plus camera in almost all conditions. That is really important to me. How does the Note 4 camera compare, especially low light? Also are the batteries close in longevity? The 6 Plus has a great battery. Would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks!!

    I can get a full work day on the network and a full day on WiFi on one charge. The Note 4 had a replaceable battery which is an advantage.
    The cameras are both OUTSTANDING.

    I'm still testing things now. But I can give some insight on a few things. The Note 4 camera is better. Or at least it seems better. When taking a picture in optimal conditions, I got a better picture from the Note 4. And it seemed a lot better. But you also have to consider that I viewed the picture taken by each device in that device. Having a higher resolution screen on the Note 4, could have influenced how good the picture looked. As far as battery life, the iPhone is winning but slightly. And it is hard to even make that claim because honestly, I used my Note 4 more than I'm using the iPhone 6 plus. I had the s-pen out almost every time I picked up the phone which I think uses more battery. But by the end of the work day, my Note would be at 20 percent and that's after 10 hours. I have two more hours at work now and I'm at 60 percent in my iPhone 6 plus. One of the things that I really love about Android that I had missed while on iOS was the background processing. I upload all of my photos to Flickr. On the iPhone, I actually have to open the app and then the pictures will back up. On the Note 4, it's done automatically. I love being able to multitask on the Note 4. And one feature I have come to love is pinning s-notes onto the home screen. It's like having digital post-it notes. The iPhone 6 Plus is faster and smoother and that's with everything. I didn't think that the Note 4 really lagged until I got the iPhone 6 plus. The apps are still better on iOS. I have always been a fan of AMOLED and have always preferred it. But the screen on the iPhone 6 plus looks better. Images in the screen look crisper even though the Note has a higher resolution. The stock keyboard on iOS is a lot better than the Samsung keyboard. Siri is better than Google Now and S-voice. The messaging app on iOS is better than the stock app on the Note. It's even better than Hangouts. Safari is better than Chrome. Faster with more features. The Note 4 charges faster and boots faster. Sound quality on phone calls are about the same. A little louder on the iPhone. But there are settings on the Note 4 that will boost the volume. However, when you use FaceTime audio for calls, it is the best sound clarity that I have ever heard on a phone. I love the file system on the Note 4. Really makes it an awesome device to work with. And what it boils down to this far is that for work, the Note 4 is better. For every thing else, I would choose the iPhone 6. But that just at this point. I'm going to give the iPhone another few days and we will see what happens.

    Got my Verizon Note 4 yesterday! I am SO happy with it!! I'm now getting a great signal here at home!! It's really nice not to need to go out in the middle of the yard to use the phone now! LOL The camera is awesome, too!! It's quite a bit different than my poor old Galaxy S3 & I have much to learn! Love reading all of the posts on the forums here. I learn something new each time I'm here!

    Ah gotcha.

    I've been without an Android phone since I shattered the screen on my SGIII. REALLY missed it. Almost caved and got a Note 3. But I just made myself be patient.

    So glad I did! I LOVE this phone!!!

    That's a huge difference coming from the S3 to the Note 4.
