    How do you do that? Let out the secret before I beat it off you.

    LMAO! No need to beat me! Lol...my daughter asked "What sound does a panda make?" So I Google's it. It asked if I wanted to play on TV...hit the square box in top right. When I did it asked me to turn on my blue ray player. So I did. It played on my TV. I knew "the Interview " was on YouTube So I looked it up on YouTube...paid for it on my Google play account and it walked me through the steps above...well...it didn't ask me to turn on the blue ray player this time. It just told me to hit the "echo box" and the movie played flawlessly! No lag on phone, No buffering. Perfect! I can believe it!

    Regarding the places widget that someone posted a few back... I used it for a while, and it sells its self as an awesome tool. Problem for me was that it struggled figuring out where I was, and keeping up. I would be at work for several hours and it still said I was out and about. Then at home it would take quite a while, if ever, to change from work to home. It made most of the features worthless, for me.
    I hope I'm not being stupid, I'm just trying to help but did you have your Location Method to High Accuracy?

    Related to that... being able to yell "Answer!" at my phone if my hands are dirty or something.
    Can you tell me how to do this? I've tried and failed trying to figure out the REJECT/ANSWER thing.

    Then it wouldn't be a Note 4. May as well get a Nexus 6.

    Nothing but Note! A little rim, some backboard, but mostly Note!
    Have to disagree with you, Doc. Though I have no intention of rooting my Note 4, I've rooted most other Android phones I've had. There's a lot to be said about being able to play with clock speeds, memory management and just about any other firmware setting you could ever want.

    Settings -> Accessibility -> Answering/ending calls. There's a check box to enable this there.

    Just realized that if you swipe across the screen when watching a video depending on the direction it will go back or forth 5 seconds.

    Couple of things I tried today.

    1. Download booster, worked brilliantly considering my home broadband maxes out at 8Mbps, so 25Mbps is amazing for me!

    Coolest features you discovered after buying your Note 4-screenshot_2014-12-27-13-35-32.jpg

    2. Car Mode and find my car. Theres an option in car mode for it to automatically record your cars location when you exit it. Not only does it show you where you parked, but also when, so you won't overstay so easily!

    This is a Google feature, not exclusive to the Note 4. I have an LG wifi Blu-ray player that does this as well.

    -sent from my old but still useful Note 3

    By the way Note 4 family, I have finally settled on my "keeper" case and I would like to pass on my previous two cases to someone in need or just wants to have another case. I have two that I will paying on to a new home. I have a Samsung Protective Cover in dark gray. And I have a Tech21 classic black tactical case. If anyone wants it, just PM me your address and I will send it. Just one per person though. Happy Holidays!

    Note in my house!

    If you start car mode, then click the three dot menu on the main 'Hi Galaxy' screen.

    Coolest features you discovered after buying your Note 4-screenshot_2014-12-28-06-57-31.jpg

    Then settings, then click on parking location

    And check the checkbox

    Download booster is in the notification shade, just tap it to turn on and the network icon changes. This is one that might be disabled by your carrier though.
