    So I briefly left my Note 4 this week in favor of a Nexus 6. I also picked a Droid Turbo to use as well.

    It only took 4 days for me to go back to my note 4 and put the Nexus up for sale. Had anyone else tried leaving your Note just to end up back on it?

    I don't have a Note 4 but a friend of mine used to had one, she sell it and buy a Nexus 6. She is not happy with the Nexus and wants another Note 4.

    Why would you do that? And you have so much $$ to buy other phones for full retail? lol

    I like the thought of a pure device for timely updates and the thought of pure Android. That's why .. Instead I missed my s pen and went back

    The Note 4 is probably the best Android phablet. It makes use the screen's size for multitasking purposes while the Nexus 6 is just an oversized normal smartphone.

    While on Note 4, only the Meizu MX4 tempted me but even then, it uses Mediatek processor. So Note 4 it is.

    Yep. Went from g3 to note 4 to turbo to iPhone 6 plus and now back to the note 4. Each has pros and cons but for me the note 4 is the most complete. I have to admit though the battery on the iPhone 6 plus was a beast.

    The s pen and the calendar widget I use are the main reason I came back. I use the s pen a lot. Never actually knew how much until I used the iPhone.

    Add me to the list. I've gone from a note 4, to an iPhone 6+, back to the note 4, to a nexus 6, back to the note 4. For me, I think I see a pattern...

    Not me. I'm totally sold on the Note 4. I also have a BlackBerry Z10 and I find that I rarely, if ever, use it now. In my opinion, the Note 4 is the best device out there for me.

    Left the Note 4 for the iPhone 6 Plus. Touchwiz and the ugliness of the icons was driving me crazy. Let's be real Touchwiz needs a total revamp. It's a convoluted mess. Enjoyed the sheer beauty and polish of IOS for one full weekend. Why can't Samsung create a simpler, more elegant UI? My mother in law has the note 4 and every time she used it I was green with envy. For all the people who say 1080p is the same as quad-HD on a phone, let me just say it: they don't know what they're talking about. For as good as the iPhone's display is, it doesn't begin to touch the brilliance of the Note 4 screen. That's what brought me back. Along with customization, more advanced, flexible OS, etc... Apps didn't look the same on the iPhone's panel and was missing the extra 0.2 inches badly. Basically I couldn't live without my note 4 for longer than 3 days. The camera on the iPhone seemed quicker. The thinness of the device made it easier to get around but I was also frightened it would bend at any minute.

    I traded around phones like crazy up until 3 months ago when I got my Note 4. I tried the LG G3 , Galaxy S5 and Note 3( all 3 also great ), HTC ONE M8, ONE Max, iPhone 5s. When I got the Note 4 I stopped. Every reason I got rid of the other phones was fixed on the Note 4.

    Same here. Had the LG G3, LG G2, Nexus 5, HTC One M7 before setling on the Note 4. My prior Samsung phone was the Galaxy SIII.

    Haha I have the same setup. I tried to use the Z10 yesterday and lasted about 2 hours.

    I have the Sony Xperia Z3 right now and I'll be trying the Note 4. I'll see which one I end up keeping and which one I end up selling. I originally chose the Z3 because of the water resistant / dust proof.

    Forgot to mention that I also tried the Sony xperia z3 for about 3 days. Fantastic build quality and minimal Sony skin on top of Android. IP 67 certification gives great piece of mind. Good 1080p triluminos display. Battery lasts forever. Camera advertised as 20 Megapixel but works with 8 most of the time. You can research this. Cons: Too many flaps, not really a phablet, glass back makes it extremely fragile. Great alternative in the 5, 5.2 display space but can't compete with Note 4 at all. Note 4 completely obliterates it except in the IP certification department You're better off waiting for the Z4. Sony will start introducing phones once a year after that, not every 6 months. Understand Z4 is around the corner.

    You can always get around TW by installing Nova launcher. I'm not a fan of any OEM UI. And iOS....boring. I have an iPad mini2. Does what I need but what a boring OS.

    Agree with you on how quickly IOS turns into a boring affair. I've used every single launcher available. Nova is probably the best. For some reason I don't like any launcher on the Note 4. And I started using these things back with the Galaxy SIII. This phone would be just about perfect if it ran stock Android with obvious modifications for the S Pen, etc...

    My understanding is that Nova Launcher maintains all of the functionality with the exception of "pinning" an S-note to the screen...like a post-it.

    Is there any other functionality lost with Nova? And does it truly reduce the "lag"? (not that it is much of a laggy phone)

    I might head down to Best Buy today and pick up a Note 4. They have a $100 gift card ...making the phone $200.

    Good thread. I went from my Note 4 to Note Edge, then back to my Note 4 because I find the combo of my Note 4 and Gear S surpass all the bells and whistles of my Note Edge.

    Believe Nova doesn't take away anything else except what you mentioned. Haven't tested thoroughly though. My dislike for launchers on the Note 4 is purely aesthetic. Can't explain it. Pretty optimistic about the direction Samsung is taking with their phones:metal bodies and less bloatware, If rumors are true. Samsung Galaxy SVI will give us a better idea of that vision. Would you sacrifice removable battery for an all aluminum unibody?

    I wouldn't. I'm not a fan of metal phones. I may be in the minority but I've had the m8 and iPhone 6 plus. While they look great they are so damn slick I can't hold them. I also think they may be more prone to scratches. I try not to use a case. The s5 and note 4 are the best feeling phones to hold. If you have to put a case on a phone to make it more usable isn't that a design flaw.
