    In reading all the posts, I feel that Verizon owners of the Note 4, should have a section of their own. .. only because the hardware varies from the other 3 carriers. Just my thoughts.

    The hardware varies how exactly? Do you mean just the mic holes at the bottom? What else?

    Yeah the mic placement and Verizon bloatware is all I notice.

    Each carrier has a different country manufacturing their particular N4. Those from Verizon come from China, while ATT makes theirs in Vietnam. I think T mobile makes theirs in Korea. It is possible there are slight differences in their components depending on particular country's part suppliers. I think, for example, there have been more ATT owners complaining of tinny sounding speakers here, than owners of Verizon and T mobile. So there may be a good reason to have separate carrier discussions, when complaints like this are mentioned.

    My T-Mobile Note 4 was made in Vietnam. H/W : REV. 1.1, date 10/11/14. I'm guessing that's hardware revision 1.1

    I started with the Spigen case w/kickstand and mine had slight scratches on the top metal from taking it out of the case a couple times.

    So I've been going without a case for 2 weeks now.

    I'm really enjoying not having a case (or screen protector). I feel the build quality is too good (premium) to hide.

    My previous phones all had cases and I wouldn't dare not have one. But I only dropped those once each from a very low height, no damage.

    So I'm very careful with my phones.

    Anyone have info on the radios on the Verizon network and have they improved? I need to make a decision shortly between this and the N6 and my GS3's radios were terrible compared to my Moto X. I'm hoping Sammy has improved them since but need someone to let me know.

    Much appreciated!!

    Excellent. Thank you for the info. That was my BIGGEST (understatement) gripe w/ the GS3. I love that device but it was so frustrating how often I dropped calls.

    I don't know if you saw my other thread (if so, please delete it) but do you know if there's anything to compete w/ Moto Assist?? I commute a lot and absolutely HATE seeing people on their phones while driving. Moto Assist completely relieves me of even having to think about touching my phone while driving. So yeah, after my question and description, let's get back to the original question: is there anything out there to compete w/ Moto Assist or any apps to help?? I've looked but haven't found much of anything.

    Thanks for the response.

    Right on. Thanks anyway. FWIW, Moto Assist (especially for people like me) might have been the best thing ever to happen to cell phones lol. I'll look into car mode but I'm guessing it's the same as it was where it'll read to you whom the call is coming from and whom is sending the text but I bet the voice commands don't exist like on my Moto X.

    If I could only get a Note w/ those features, I'd be 100% sold.... losing Touchwiz wouldn't hurt either even though I've heard performance is night and day compared to how it worked on the GS3 if you want to confirm that even though almost all reports I've read have said so lol.

    Yeah through my brief research ive heard 2 things about spigen cases. 1. they scratch your phone when removing (which i will plan to do for when im at the gym and not) and the mic gets covered up with certain cases. So far im still leaning towards the samsung flip cases as ive had them on my past samsung phones. Thinking about getting a cheap one on Amazon to use while at the gym even though i heard it doesnt have the sleep/awake feature but hey, theyre under $5.00 so you get what you pay for.

    I have never used a Moto X, so can't compare, but you can use Google now commands on the note 4, even with the screen off.

    I can't give you exact details but I can say that I have had 4 smart phones one Motorola and 3 Sammies and the note 4 is the first one that I can actually get data inside my house, and 4G data at that. To me that is a huge improvement, before the Note 4 I had a Note 2 and it was the best I had for signal inside the house until the Note 4 and there is a noticeable improvement.

    When I look at the numbers in status I don't see a lot of difference between the 2 and 4 but in actual practice I do, I can get phone signal and data in a power outage and that makes me a happy camper.

    Anyone have info on the radios on the Verizon network and have they improved? I need to make a decision shortly between this and the N6 and my GS3's radios were terrible compared to my Moto X. I'm hoping Sammy has improved them since but need someone to let me know.

    Well, as far as touchwiz goes, I installed Nova prime after a few days. I love Nova but my phone constantly stuttered. I dealt with it for a few weeks. I thought it was my phone. So then I decided to go back to tw and the stuttering stopped. Not sure why or what happened because I used Nova on my gs4 the whole time I had it with no issues but the note didn't seem to like it. I am seeing a slight degradation in my battery life since switching back to tw but not sure if that's the only culprit here. Just my experience with it anyway.
