    Went to the AT&T store today to let my wife look for an upgrade to her wore down S4. She is on her phone constantly for work. Her main requirements are great battery life (or a swappable battery due to not having time to plug in during the day), and good camera as she uses it daily for work as well.

    We went in specifically looking at the LG g4 and the new S6 Active. After seeing the both, she was leaning towards the Active since she's already familiar with Samsung, and didn't really care for the G4 software. But after seeing the Note 4, she's thinking that's the one she'd prefer. I hadn't even brought it up to her before due to size, and the fact that it's almost time for the new version. But she does prefer to hand write things instead of typing, as far as notes during the day, so I could definitely see her making use of the s-pen.

    So, would you still buy this today, even though it's almost due for replacement? Or have you had too many issues to consider it anymore?

    I am back on the Note 4 after a month with the S6. Still an amazing phone in every way ☺

    I would definitely. The screen has been fantastic, the battery life for what I do phenomenal (off charger at 6am, usually have about 40% at 9pm when I head to bed), the camera has been great for my use and the pen is the clincher. My only complaint with this phone has been the bluetooth skips when listening to music. You can find a long thread about that in this forum.

    Yes, without thinking twice!

    We have both my Note 4 and a S6 at home, and having had the Note 4 since launch and had S6 for a week to play with, I find myself liking my Note 4 even more.

    The Note 4's display is not just huge but it is stunning to look at and a pleasure to use on a daily basis, I watch quite a lot of series on it and thoroughly enjoy web browsing on it as I am right now.

    The battery life is amazing, I take it off charge at around 7:30am and by the time I get to bed at around 10pm its around 25-30% left, and thats with it on and off WiFi throughout the day, running my work Gmail, personal Gmail and Outlook accounts. Web browsing on and off with Chrome and Opera Mini, WhatsApp with multiple groups, 10-15min voice calls, FB, Twitter and Instagram browsing and posting, and playing music for around 20mins.

    The Camera still amongst the best, falling behind only the S6.

    Build quality top notch, dropped mine many times on tiles and still looks good.

    The SPen is the cherry on top, being able to take a quick note or 2, grabbing parts of images in no time, and selecting items with great accuracy be it text or image and text, it is just brilliant.

    I'm loving it.

    You might want to think about getting a used Samsung s4 on Swappa for less than $200. It will do everything you stated that you need.

    I would definitely purchase the Note 4 again even today. As a matter of fact if the Note 5 isn't up to what I want I will purchase a second Note 4 to provide a spare for a few extra years of use.

    I have two Note 4's. A white and a black. I use my S-Pen like crazy. The only thing I'm considering is selling the black for a S5 to take with me to work and drill because the Note 4 doesn't fit in my pocket for either of the mentioned.

    Oh. And my reasoning for the S5 is the expandable storage. I'm anti-Cloud.

    This phone far exceeds my expectations of what a smartphone can do. Yes, I would get another one.

    After almost 3 months of using the SGN.IV, I definitely would not hesitate purchasing another one. So far so good and I haven't experience any catastrophic errors/failures/glitches. In my sphere, the SGN.IV is "perfect" for what it was designed and built for. Then again, Your Methods May Vary accordingly so.

    Absolutely! I've not had one single issue with my Note 4. I think that it is a great phone.

    If she uses her phone a lot for work, she will love the Note 4.

    I'm just not all that impressed with the Galaxy S line. My daughter has a S4 and I had the S5 before my Note. I've played around with the S6 and it doesnt seem all that different than the S5, which I found to be underwhelming. Solid phones, but horribly lacking in comparison to the Note series.

    Yes but the only thing that's bothered me was the camera now takes a while to come up with the lollipop update. Like 4 seconds slower than touch Wiz. If you need a quick shot sometimes you're screwed.

    i rather despise this phone... really want my Nokia Lumia 1520 back, but no amount of arguing would get the store to swap it back less than 12 hours later...

    screen is smaller... , ugly plain icons and then there are all the apps i do not want and can't uninstall... yes, i've learned to disable/hide them... ;~)

    sadly, i needed something besides windowsphone for access to work apps that will never make their way into windowsphone app store...

    still mourning loss of my 1520...

    got my first Android device (Note 4) moving from Apple. I would still buy a Note 4 over and over. Its has small quirks, (so did Apple) But its a great phone and I love it. With the rumors that the Note 5 might have no SD card now. This is a good choice..

    If it wasn't for the carrier, Sprint, I would purchase the note 4 again. I'm simply waiting on the note 5 specs to decide if I want to jump carriers with it or get the note 5 or something else.

    For me it wasn't at first but now it's getting to be a headache at specific times. I want to factory reset but I figured I'd wait for the 5.1.1 update to come out first. I might say "screw it" and just factory reset it anyway to see if it helps. There's some things that are overly annoying like the 4-5 second lag when trying to review pics when opened from the lockscreen shortcut to the 1-2 second lag when hitting the home button, opened apps, and opening my folders since I don't use individual icons.

    Not to hijack this thread, but while it's on my mind, what do you guys use to back up SMS messages and call logs prior to phone wiping? Free apps since I'm cheap lol.

    I'm actually probably going to sell this phone once I see the new Moto X or Nexus if LG's camera is good. It'll never be as good as this camera but vanilla Android and a good camera > bloated software and an amazing camera.

    Mookie, I moved onto an LG4 this week because of the Note 4's lag. Loved the size, hated the stutter and lag. Had since launch.
