    So, how do you feel about your time with your Note 4? As most people that are stalking these forums, I'm considering a Note 4 among others and I wanted to see how people are getting along with it. I've perused the love threads and the issues threads, but those only show a small percentage of users on one side of a fence or the other. I think it would be more beneficial to create a poll.

    Also, feel free to add important, intelligent commentary as you please.

    Love it. It's definitely not perfect, but I have yet to own a smartphone that was. This one is imperfect in ways that I can live with.

    Awesome phone. Left my iPhone 5s for it and passed up on the iPhone 6. I use it mostly for work as its a company issued device so in that regard it functions great as a work device.

    Been on mine for a week and loving it so far. Came from iOS. Had an iPhone since the 2G. It's a bit of a learning curve learning android but it's been great. LOVE the S Pen!

    I've had it a few weeks now. I had the blackberry storm a few years ago and have never had a flagship phone since. This is the first in a long time. I know it has it's small minute flaws...but dang it's an awesome device. I don't even look at it like a phone any more ...it is my wing man! my go to guy! My buddy! It's always by my side and helps me with all life brings my way!

    The Note 4 whilst not perfect (don't know a phone that is) is a fantastic piece of tech.

    The screen is sublime and this couped with the features and most important battery life to fully enjoy is great. I average 5hrs screen on time often more which is more than enough for my ussage.

    There are opportunities as it has expansion upto 128gb and removable battery if you are an extreme user. Or just prefer to swap batteries.

    The Note 4 is a full package of little goodies and you'll be sure to enjoy should you opt for this device.

    I'm coming from a Lumia 920 on Windows. I've found the app gap to be a much smaller issue than the media makes it out to be. I love the phone, though. The screen is great. I don't mind the size most of the time. I have large pockets and it fits pretty well. The only time it bothers me is when tying my shoes.

    I like the s pen a lot. It really gives the note something no other phone has. It's not something I can't live without but is extremely useful.

    The camera is great. Very fast. Lots of detail. Great shot to shot times. Cameras are very important to me and the notes camera is the best I've used.

    I have a few dissapointments. Some are a lack of customizing on my part (keyboard, lock screen, launcher). I don't like how much space there is between icons. There is some slowdown here and there. The keyboard isn't as good as the stock WP keyboard. The lock screen and s view window are limited in functionality. I'm sure most of these issues can be remedied with a new launcher, lock screen, and keyboard.

    My biggest complaints come from car integration and Xbox music functionality. WP was significantly better with both. I can't do half of the things with the phone in the car that I could do with WP. Xbox music has limited functionality. I understand the issues with Xbox music. I'll either work around them or switch to another service. The car functionality is a bigger issue and I haven't been able to find a working solution yet.

    If it weren't for the camera, multitasking, and pen I'd switch back to WP. I'm still undecided at this time.

    Overall I like mine. Had it for a month now.

    Favorite things:
    Screen
    Size
    Memory and storage
    Battery life

    Things I don't like:
    Speaker sounds terrible
    Camera is slow to access and sucks taking pictures of people unless in daylight
    Not everyone takes pictures of still buildings and landscapes
    Gallery is slow to access from the camera and feels laggy
    I dont like all the segregation in the gallery I'd prefer one large camera roll
    I wish it had a better do not disturb setting without having to pay for an app

    Really? Accessing the gallery from the camera app is slow. Quite slow for me. The first time I did that I thought it had froze. I quit and tried again. It's just slow.

    I think the camera is quite good indoors and great for people shots. Auto settings could use some work but the F 2.0 aperture, color balance, detail, and speed on the camera are quite good. My case is the s view case so getting to the camera is quick. If I had to unlock the phone and start the app it could take some time.

    I'm fortunate to have both the SM-910f (snapdragon) & SM-910c (Exynos).

    The Ui is smooth on both and experienced none of your reported issues. The recents menu had a delay prior to root and running a custom ROM. Since this its improved won't lie still can hiccup now and again but for the most part it opens instantly.

    Camera I have found to be more than capable and have no complaints with the results :-)

    I've been seeing people say that they are having problems with the gallery opening slow. I haven't experienced this and currently have over 5000 images stored. They are all on my SD card and broke up into different folders. Maybe that has something to do with it.

    Ive had mine since October. Now seeing as you've already admitted to stalking the forums like me Ill try to help. I came from the S3, iPhones are outta the question. Being familiar and happy with the Galaxy line I wanted to upgrade to a bigger screen and YES the S Pen. I constanly take advantage of the Action Memo to help me remember the little thing I always forget. There IS lag in Touch Wiz. Mainly I've noticed it in the Recent Apps soft key which i keep loaded. The screen is beautiful, camera is good for a phone but the editing software is awesome. If you like the Galaxy line, and dont mind a larger phone, its a definite YES. HDR was on in the photo. Hope this helps.

    I have to admit I do envy the Edge. Also, there are features and things that I LOVE about my Wife's Moto X 2014 edition. But overall, i'd take the Note 4 every single day of the week over the X as great as it is. Mostly because of the S pen.

    I've only had my Note 4 for a couple days, coming from the Note 2 and although I love the phone, I am experiencing things I never did on my N2, and a few things I liked better on the N2.

    1. My Phone gets Very Hot, even doing the most basic things, like sending a text, reading email etc.
    2. I have experienced Freezing when in several different applications.... 1) taking a video, 2) last night tried to download an app and it just seemed to get stuck in the 'installing mode' so I backed out to home screen and it continued to be installing for a very long time, so I attempted to power off my phone and it wouldn't let me..... the back and recent app buttons stayed lit and had to pull the battery!

    That sounds like an RMA to me.
