    I think this right here makes it very clear that you're ready for a change of scenery. Sony, Motorola, HTC, and LG make amazing alternatives if you're tired of Samsung. I certainly wouldn't say any of them are more creative except maybe HTC, and possibly LG with the buttons on the back.

    In the most polite way possible i'd say do yourself a favor and give another manufacturer a try
    Yup, I totally agree on that. After supporting Samsung for many years, it's time to dip your feet into new territory & seek new experience.

    It's time to go iPhone? Sony? HTC? :-)

    My wife has the 6 plus. It's not as good as the note 4 at all..... imo

    That's precisely why I need both. To me, no one phone is going to be perfect. But the iPhone 6+ and Note 4 together? That's a nasty-sliq combo.

    As you said ... best of both worlds . I am trying to talk my gf into an iPhone 6 (she has a Galaxy S4) -- I know she will love it since she doesn't tinker or anything like that .. she is just resistant to change at first .

    If I knew FOR SURE if Sony was releasing a Xperia Z Ultra 2 next year, I wouldn't even bother thinking about getting a Note 4 or another Samsung product in general. Sony is now what Samsung used to be a few years ago and even better. I could go to a Z3 or Z4 but they simply are too small, I can't go back to smaller

    Yeah not going to lie I want to play around and use a 6 + for awhile. Mainly because most of the things I jail-broke an iPhone for when I had it have been fixed .. So the curious side of me wants to play with it .
    If you used an iPhone since it's conception.....the iPhone 6 and 6+ are no different except for bigger screens....and better cameras.

    IMHO, the iPhone 6's camera blows chunks on the N4's camera. Not just in pic quality but in videos as well. I can churn out 10 pics on the 6 versus 4 on the N4. Now if you turn off OIS on the N4, the speed increases substantially but pic quality suffers.

    Irrelevant. No side benzel means there is little to no protection for the LCD screen on a drop or hard hit. Have fun with that, i'll take benzel protection any day

    I don't recall those issues with my Note 3. What I do see from the Note 4 that I saw quite often with my Note 3 is when I try to back out of reading a text message, I'll notice that for some reason the touchscreen thinks I am pressing a space bar and will save the "message" as a draft. I've also noticed that if you hit the back button 3 times to back it up to a prior screen, it doesn't keep the amount of times you hit the back button in queue. I'm guessing they did that in an attempt to make the phone seem more fluid, although I remember my HTC would go back 3 screens if I hit the back button 3 times. The other final annoyance is when I'm typing fast and look at what I've typed, I'll see complete garbage. My HTC had much better logic when it came to predictive text.

    Unng, no LG, their button placement idea is an utter joke.
    One of the best design choice imo. I wish the note 4 had the buttons on the back, along with the knock on

    Sounds like, to me, that you should manufacture a phone yourself. That is the only way you will be happy That said; your critical attitude is what moves mobile phone development forward. --There is a lot of room for improvement!

    How do the note 4 and 6 plus camera compare in day light shots with and with out motion?
    To preface I am not a professional photographer. Day shots without motion the note 4 is excellent. The iPhone 6 plus is very close, imo. With motion, the iPhone 6 plus has the edge. Both can take pictures of moving cars (local street) with minimal blurring in burst mode though the iPhone provides noticeably better detail. The Note is limited to 30 shots per burst. Not sure if the iPhone has a limit but i got to about 90 images on a single burst.

    Focus wise the iPhone does better overall though tapping on the screen does help to focus. Keep in mind that you must look at the screen to make sure it is in focus, especially with motion.

    Camera was the only thing that I was considering getting the iPhone for especially lower light with motion. And no doubt the iPhone is better here but with burst mode, the note isn't too far behind. The iPhone still provides less percentage of blurry pictures and at low light, better detail.

    Besides that, I like that the iPhone has no special modes, just shoot. With the note, depending on the situation, you may need to select a mode to get better shots

    Well it sounds like the Note 4 isn't remotely worth the cost and hassle to upgrade too for the pitiful camera upgrade and worthless screen change IMO as I didn't see much improvement from 720P on my Note 2 to 1080P on my Note 3. I'll save my Jump! upgrade till next year when hopefully sony will announce and release a powerhouse Xperia Z Ultra 2 or HTC releases M9 Prime.

    Thanks for the blunt and honest info, thats what I needed

    Don't misunderstand, the Note 4 is absolutely worth any upgrade from any device. The camera is great in the vast majority of settings, and the screen is absolutely stunning. We're just saying it's not for you. And there's nothing wrong with that. There's so many other awesome alternatives that will give you the break from Samsung that you clearly need. Let us know what you decide to go with and how you like it!

    I have always had and avidly use my SD. That being said I ALSO use my Google Cloud, wallet, and drive. I was skeptical at first especially coming from a BlackBerry which used desktop software to backup your device, but to me it's insurance. If anything happens to my SD Card or my PC I'll never lose anything that can't be replaced.

    I'm getting a Note 4 this week and my fiancee is getting an iPhone 6+. It will be interesting to compare the two, especially with regards to the screen and camera, the two most important things for me on a smartphone.

    I don't have any friends who have a 6+ but have several with the 6. At a wedding this past weekend, we all took a bunch of pictures (I have a GS4) and mine came out just as good if not better than the pics taken with the 6. I took a couple of the same pics with both my GS4 and the 6; not much of a difference and not just in my opinion either. I'm wondering if the 6+ will be noticeably better in terms of camera use vs the 6.

    Basically, I cant' go anything smaller, I love large screen phones after getting the Note series, so basically I want a phone thats 5.7'' or larger and nothing out right now beyond the Xperia Z Ultra fits that criteria. Sadly, the Ultra has a **** poor camera and no flash, so hence why I don't get one now. If Ultra 2 comes out next year, rumors of the full 64bit Snapdragon 810 along with 4gigs of ram and a full IPS 2560x1600 screen with sony optical zoom will make it Godlike among smartphones.

    I know you can't do much about the disparity in phones with a loved one, but I must say that I keep my wife's phone the same as mine. We have gone through several smart phones that are always the same model. It makes troubleshooting a 1000% easier when there is an issue with one of the phones. Plus, what my wife doesn't understand (which is a lot! LOL! ), I can quickly show her as I'm familiar with her phone. It also works out better when dealing with accessories. Next time you get yourself a main squeeze, choose an Android user! LOL!!! j/k good luck.

    Honestly, I kind of agree. So far this year's crop of Android devices has been pretty underwhelming. About the only ones I am slightly interested in is the Note 4 and the Nexus 6. But what does the Nexus 6 REALLY offer over any other device besides direct updates? It's really not that much better than the Nexus 5 aside from screen size and doesn't really have any new features. I was going to preorder it until I realized that it was a marginal upgrade almost 2 year old One M7.

    The Note 4 is intriguing but still lacking in some areas that it really shouldn't at this point for an $800 phone (although that $200 dollar giftcard deal might be too hard to pass up if I can still get it). To be perfectly honest I think the iPhone 6/6+ are the most innovative phones in this cycle so far. I'm excited to see what HTC has up their sleeves though.

    That said, my girlfriend just bought a Note 4 and so far she loves it. I played around with it and the S-Pen is almost worth it, the display is nice, and the quick charge feature is cool. Not a huge fan of Touchwiz but it's greatly improved from the past iterations as far as I can tell. Personally I think the mutli-tasking features are kind of gimmicky and limited usefulness but they are there if you want them. The camera seems OK but needs some tinkering to take decent low light shots and didn't seem to be as fast as my M7. I can't speak to the fixing of Note 3 issues but it seems like if you are comfortable with TouchWiz and Samsung phones you will probably love the Note 4.
