    i have only had this phone for about a week or so, and when i first got it, they transfered everything over from my old phone. The problem with that was that i had a lot of apps on my old phone that i didnt want any more, so i factory reset it a few days ago.
    This is where things get intresting. before the factory reset, if i was doing something on my phone, and i got a text message. a little box would pop up that took up about the top 1/4 of my screen, from this box i could view, reply and ( iirc) discard the message, after the reset this feature has disappeared. i really liked not having to stop whatever i was doing to reply to a text message and i have searched all over the web and settings in my phone and for the life of me can not find how to turn this back on. Anyone have any suggestions?

    You did make a factory reset to delete apps... maybe one of them was just for that? I haven't seen any pop up like that on the stock messaging app. Sounds like one of those pop-up notification apps.

    Go into the settings area, scroll down to where the messages app is listed, open the messages settings, scroll down to notifications, and there is a toggle for pop up window.

    i was using the default messaging app though, and messaging box that popped up look exactly like the one that still pops up when i get a phone call, instead of changing the whole screen to the incoming call screen, the caller id, answer and ignore, the box was the same size and layout. so why would that one still work and not the text messaging one if it were an app

    Now, if they can only add a "mark as read" option so that it still doesn't show as an unread message when you go into the app later or get a new message. I had this option on my Galaxy Nexus, but Samsung still doesn't have it? Absurd.

    Thanks for the tip!! I always liked the text box that dropped down on the G3 and I had absolutely no idea the Note 4 could do the same thing!

    I wish. My Sprint version only clears the notification after I actively open the text box. Annoying.

    SGN4 :-D
