    So I just purchased my note 4 (2yr contract). While this camera and screen are great, here is something wrong. I get home and start playing around with the phone and i realize the key pad is bothering me. And so are some of the ways the capacitive buttons work. I really like how my note 2 is working and the keyboard layout. Even webpages I visit seem to be better on my note 2.

    Did anyone else have this problem. I kind of feel a little buyers remorse in getting the note 4. Hopefully this is something I will grow out of during my 14 days with it. I was so excited and now i kind of feel let down.

    I guess I'm not understanding your complaints about the keyboard layout and the webpages. Maybe you can expound on your points? From my personal experience, the Note 4 is a lot better than the Note 3 and leaps ahead of the Note 2.

    What do you mean web pages look better?

    To answer your question, sort of only because I feel like Samsung screwed me. I bought the Note 4 because there were reports that the Edge will be delayed up here until early 2015, something to do with LTE. IDK, can't remember. Now a few days ago I read it's coming by the end of November!?!? I hope it's not true, I'm not ready to lose $100+ after paying for it outright at $900 (includes taxes) just a few weeks ago.

    Ok let me try and say this a little better. I feel like the keyboard is better on the note 2 than on the 4. I feel like the letters are bigger and closer together on the stock keyboard. I just like the layout better.

    When I am on forums the layout looks squished and for some reason on the n4. As if the text were larger or something. And on the no I feel like the layout is a little better, the text looks normal too me on the n2. I'm thinking it's just an adjustment period.

    I think that it's always a little bit "strange" jumping from one phone to another. You probably had your Note 2 set exactly to your preferences. Try and see if changing the settings in your Note 4 browser works...You have a choice of Two after all..Chrome and Samsungs own. I can't help thinking that with a little tinkering, you could get things just as you like them. I have the N3 and got an N4 too and of course there are going to be things on your N4 that you miss from your N2....only natural, but not insurmountable. Again as someone else has said that, there are always 3rd party keyboards. I for one love the keyboard on the N4 over the N3 but then I never had an N2....phew!..that was a lot of N's. I have a Nexus 4 and love the keyboard on that. I think that it's a question of adapting sometimes. Good luck (by the way, I for one think that you've made a great decision and have a fantastic phone.

    The only time I use stock keyboards on any device I get is during the setup. Then SwiftKey is the first app I download.

    I love my note 4, my only "regret" is that I feel like I don't use the S-Pen and could have possibly been fine with a cheaper phone (G3 or S5 or something).

    If you don't use the S-pen then the Note 4 isn't much different than the other phablets on the market. The differentiator is the S-pen.

    I like the stock Samsung keyboard a lot. Love that the top row has numbers.

    Tried it and don't like it as much as swift key using swiftkey with the material light design which looks cool.

    I absolutely loved Swiftkey for about 2 years and told EVERYONE to download it. Then it got an update, and instantly it was like the entire predictive engine went on the fritz. It would predict words I never, or rarely used and it was not picking up my "flowing" for nothing. I was very sad, but I had no choice but to move on.

    I never had this issue myself. The Google keyboard is good but I like that swiftkey has the number row on top

    I've noticed that too about the Swiftkey flow predictive engine.

    I went back to Swype keyboard and it seems to be much improved for predicting my words. That's one reason I left Swype and went to Swiftkey.

    I wonder what happened to Swiftkey?

    Long pressing the Google Keyboard will get me my numbers when I need them, and I like the keyboard to be as minimalistic as possible while still having functionality. So getting adjusted to the occassional long press has been perfect for what I need the keyboard to do. I get why people love SwiftKey though. It's definitely the best keyboard on the market if it does well for you with the predictive engine it uses.

    Because it went free perhaps lol ? I don't notice it myself. Actually went to the Google keyboard again and quite like it . Maybe I'll keep it on for a while
