    Anyone else seeing this? I'm unable to download Office Mobile from the Play Store as its saying my device is not compatible? This seems super odd.

    I've used Office Mobile on my OnePlus, M8, Z1S, etc with no issues.

    Is this Microsoft's issue or Samsung?
    The S5 is also running kitkat and this app works fine.

    Can you backup the app and side load it on the N4?

    Doesn't the note 4 come with hancom office 2014. I heard it is a great office tool and keeps all ms office documents in the correct format.

    Thats what I'm not sure of. I've tweeted at both and gotten no response. As well as followed up with a few other tech bloggers. No response. Would love for AC or someone to cover this. Seems to be a relatively large issue. For those heavy users of Office anyway.

    It does. But thats not the point. I can use Googles suite of products too. But I use Office everywhere. And I want to use it on my Android device - like I have previously. With all other devices.

    I wouldnt be surprised to find out that Hancom is the reason Office is unavailable.

    Yes. I evidently can't post a perfectly legal and honorable way to use the app I paid for because the moderator removed the link but if you Google things like Office Mobile apk etc, it'll pop right up. Good luck.

    And note to moderators... I am in the IP business. I honor agreements. I just don't like it when someone else tries to void my own agreements and licenses.

    You can install it manually by uploading the APK for Office Mobile. Make sure in Security settings, you check off Allow Unknown Sources...

    I couldnt attach onto this comment and apparently I don't post enough to post links but just Google it and you can find the APK on the APK 4 Fun website.

    So what is the story, is it really some conflict with the crappy Office app that is preloaded in the Note 4 that Google won't allow Office Mobile to be installed via Google Play?

    Ridiculous. Glad I found the workaround.

    Be careful with doing this however as it can expose your phone to malicious software. If you do, at least make sure you are running reputable anti virus software.

    Same here but I read get from play store MaAppsharer to grab from a device where it's working and install it on tablets and phones....works fine on Note 4 and Note Tab 4. I had already traded in my Note 3 (had no issues) ....I resurrected my GNEX and uploaded the apk to Dropbox and installed it on my N4 and NT4....the issue was to be able to obtain the installer....every site I looked at to just download the apk was full of risk.

    Others have knocked it's not as robust as other office apps out there, but all I needed to do is share the cloud storage and veiw docs....BTW, if you have the 365 subscription, you now have 10tbs of cloud space

    Funny... I posted almost exactly this last week and it was removed. Even the same link. I don't know why since it is only allowing us to use what we paid for.

    So this only works if you have previously installed Office Mobile on another device?

    I am facing this issue too with my new Note 4.

    Just had a chat with Google Play support and they say the incompatibility is because:

    "Note 4's screen density is higher than what Microsoft Office Mobile supports"

    Looks like we have to just wait for an update for this.

    Note 4 (and LG g3 ) is too good for it!

    Once MS releases the version for Android tablets, we should be good to go.

    Boy I would recommend waiting guys. If you can work around to load it and the issue is as described I would bet the device would struggle with that anomaly every time you opened the program. Then again, maybe it is critical for some folks. I will use what is there for now and wait for the developers to catch up. But I could totally understand somebody trying to get it going before it is fixed.

    I sideloaded the app. And someone said the hancom office app pre-installed on our notes wasn't so bad so I tried that as well.

    Honestly... Hancom office is way better than that office mobile app. More features. More intuitive. Easier to operate. You don't need a word app, spreadsheet app, and power point app.

    I highly recommend it. Definitely a better experience than office mobile.

    That is why office isn't available for tablets. I wonder if they used it as a cheap way of restricting it from tablets that might compete with Microsoft Surface tablets. They probably didn't count on phones getting that nice of screens yet.
