    Note 4 all the time, at home Galaxy tab pro 12.2

    Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4!!
    That's a great combination. I just can't seem to put my Note 4 down though. Maybe if I had a bigger Samsung tablet I would. But there are advantages to having the smaller device at home, like when using my Note 4 as a universal remote.

    What made you switch back to your note from the Plus? What advantages did you find over using your iPhone? I have the plus and my wife has a note 3. She loves it.

    I forgot to mention I have a 11" Asus touchscreen laptop, but I rarely use it anymore. The only time I use it is to stream content from the internet to my TV that isn't available on Chromecast (lookin' at you, Amazon Prime Instant Video).

    I use a Gear S. It complements the Note 4 well.

    The Gear S is a nice combination and they work apart too.

    I too have a Gear Fit which is pretty rad. It's small enough to fit on my tiny wrist and I get all the notifications I need. I also have an iPad Air which I really like. On a nightly basis I use my Note as a Chromecast remote and of course to get/respond to messages. I use my iPad to surf the net. On weekends I take my iPad and Note to a coffee shop and take online classes. I could take the classes on my Note, but I'd have to pause them to respond to notifications. Plus the content of the courses looks better on the bigger screen. Up until a few weeks ago I had a BlackBerry Z10, but it didn't get used for much other than installing leaks and then finally the official 10.3.1 update. I realized that it primarily sat on my bedside with a dead battery. It pained me to sell it, because this is the first time I've been completely without a BlackBerry for nearly 6 years. But, I used that money to pay for my Gear Fit, which I use multiple times a day.
    Like you, I use an ipad air and Note 4. My BlackBerry Z10 is sitting in a drawer now. I was such a die hard BlackBerry user for many years, but I just love my Note 4 and really have no need for anything else.

    I have my HP laptop. I have to use it because my employer has specifics on our site and my tablets are not compatible. I use everything and both my tabs are Samsung

    I would love to sport a watch but my wrist is quite small and it doesn't fit well. I won't get a watch just to have it

    The video review of the Apple Watch by The Verge hit the nail on the head at one point for me, I have little to no interest in knowing what my phone is doing when I don't have it in my hands. At times my phone is already a distraction from important things but a smart watch would be worse. The coolness factor is there for sure but I just don't see the every day need for me.

    Note 4, Note 8.0 (used primarily for note taking) and OG Note 10.1 still going strong. I use the phone for grocery lists, notes on the run (suck at texting and typing on the small keyboard, even with swiftkey), that's the primary reason I stick with the Note phones. I have a Mac that syncs with everything as well. The note 8.0 gets the least use of all of them, but like not having to pull out paper on my desk if it's nearby. Saves on Clutter. Also, my Note 10.1 I use for drawing every night and will have to be replaced when that goes. Need the extra real estate for drawing.

    Honestly, I don't get the smart watches. I have my phone on me all the time when I'm out, at my age the bigger the phone the better to read things. So why do I need to spend $200-$300 for something else that does the same thing. It's nice sure, don't see the necessity for it. I've looked into Surface 3 (Their app store is a joke, nothing as far as drawing is concerned) and other Tablets, Nothing compares to the Notes with the Stylus. I'm hoping they come out with a New Note 10.1 this year, because the 12.2 is too big in my opinion for my needs.

    Surface Pro 3 as primary laptop. Use it with 2 screens and docking station as primary work laptop and doubles as tablet. LG G Watch R. The watch is something I didn't think I'd like. I decided to try it and haven't looked back.

    Most frequent uses, while playing Google Music, changing tracks or volume from the watch the while walking. Google Maps navigation while walking again, especially on business trips. Very nice not to have to take my phone out while I walk to wherever I'm going.

    Also use Keep while shopping, checking off shopping list items on watch instead of having to have my phone out. Lots of other uses. I use Chromecast occasionally. Also have a JBL Bluetooth speaker for music while I travel.

    I had been going back and forth between the Note 4 and iPhone 6 Plus for months. I really like iOS, but I love the Note 4 and Android. The biggest advantage I see with the Note 4 is that it stands on its own and does it very well. I haven't needed a complementary device even though I have explored them. With the iPhone 6 Plus I needed my iPad. And the reason being is that the S-pen creates a tablet-like experience for me. The Samsung software provides a lot of functionality for me when being productive at work. And to be able to condense my tech down to just one device has been refreshing. The iPhone 6 Plus is great for what it is. It's an extremely efficient device. And a fun device. But, my Note 4 is all that and then some... and then some more.

    Since I got my Note 4 I've been able to ditch my iPad Air 2 and use my Note or my laptop for everything.

    I have a teeny tiny wrist as well, but the Gear Fit doesn't seem so big on it. I have it strapped to the third smallest hole, so it could go even smaller. Here are a couple pics:

    So I just bucked up and bought a galaxy note 12 from swappa. I've had it for a week now and it definitely is a nice companion to the Note 4.

    I could definitely get by with just the note 4, but the 12 makes it easier to take longer notes and annotate pdfs, but only because of the larger screen. Everything syncs really easily between the note 4 and 12. I only use the 15 inch laptop now for creating content like word docs and spreadsheets.

    If you can spare the extra scratch, the note 12 is a great companion, but if money is tight, then you'll get by just fine on the note 4.

    Two things...

    Samsung Note Pro 12.2"
    - go BIG, or go home.


    Gear VR
    - virtual reality is awesome. A real game changer and a lot of fun.

    I didn't buy the phone for Gear VR and thought it was a bit gimmicky when they introduced with the Note 4. But now that I have it...WOW!

    I have been using a 2013 Nexus 7 and an Asus Transformer Pad Infinty TF700T tablet with my Note 4 but I recently replaced the TF700T (beautiful but laggy & buggy even with a custom ROM) with an iPad Air 2. As a longtime Android fanboy, I never thought I would buy an Apple tablet but I must say I love it and now rarely touch the Note 4 or Nexus 7 when I'm in the house. Beautiful screen and fast and stable.

    I have a Note 8.0 from AT&T that I got for free when I bought the S5 last spring.

    It's a nice tablet and I'm a fan of the size because it's very easy to tote around all day, but it's an older tablet and the S Pen functions are a bit lacking in comparison to the Note 4. Since upgrading to my Note 4, my tablet hasn't left the house, and even when I'm home I still find myself playing with my phone instead.

    I may get around to upgrading to a Note 10 or 12, but for now my Note 4 has been great all by itself.

    I paid $400 for it. You probably can get them cheaper now.
