    There is so much wrong with my note 4 that I cannot wait for my contract to expire just so I can get ANYTHING BUT A SAMSUNG!

    When my phone rings I have to be carful I don't touch the wrong thing or I might prompt a response I don't want.

    Texting is not smart enough to know that the first letter of every sentence has to be capitalized.

    I look at emails or delete them only to have them come back in 7 to 10 days later as new.

    Oh, I've been looking to complain about all the problems for so long that not that I'm here I've forgotten most of them.

    The one good thing about it is that it has to be indestructible because I punch and throw it on a daily basis because of all the problems I have with it. I have a lot of problems in my life and over 90% of them are with this POS that I was laughingly sold as a Smart Phone as it is anything but... Hate does not even come close to how I feel about this phone!

    Sorry you are having so many issues. I guess I was fortunate to not have any major issues with my note 4. Had I not fell in love with the note 5 I never would have stopped using my 4.

    Have you even looked through the settings menu ?
    You can choose to auto-capitalize the first letter of every sentence in the keyboard settings.
    If you go into Call Settings, you can select how you wish to answer and end calls including using the home button.
    There are many alternate email applications you can use if the default one is giving you grief.
    Not sure why you're venting in the Note 5 forum but I'm sorry you've had such a bad experience.
    I think most would agree that the Note 4 is an excellent device and quite a smart one at that.... perhaps you can sit down with somebody who can show you around the settings menu and offer you solutions to your issues.
    Good luck !

    Alot of those problems could have been solved by digging deeper into the phones vast amount of settings. Maybe your N4 problems occurred for your abuse and lack of care? I've made the jump from the N3 to N4 and now Im using the N5. I've never had such problems with any of my note phones. The only complaint I had was the lack of attention that Samsung had for updating the N4.

    As everyone is saying read the user manual, explore the device properly, search on the internet for help as you'll only complain about the next brand you buy. This is 100% user error. If you can't be bothered to get used to the device then use forums like this one which is designed to help you get the most out of your device. There are many helpful people here who have no vested interest in any brand

    One thing that's really nice about this forum is there is not even an iota of hostility (that I've noticed) OR trolling (that I've noticed) as compared to forums for some of the other handsets/platform forums. People that have posted have legitimate problems/issues or interesting things to share. This post just made me laugh.

    The Note 4 is a really great device. I'm still using mine even though I have other great phones in rotation.
    To me it seems that you have not properly looked into resolving your issues with the phone. I have not had any of the issues that you've mention happen to my Note 4 but then I don't throw the phone around either.

    I've been in the Settings, Applications, Test section and found nothing about first letter.

    The phone is too sensitive, when it rings and I touch anything but the sides or the back I get the prompt to text the person with one of the auto responses or one of the other options. I even put the phone in my pocket upside down so I don't hit the home button and I still have problems. I just had a call that I could not pickup for whatever reason.

    My other complaint is that when a text comes in I have to do a dance of a thousand strokes to get to my message. I don't want to mention any names but my last phone I only had to swipe the message and the phone opened directly to the section with the message. This phone is a PITA!

    Sounds like a lot of user error. I would suggest watching some youtube videos on the topics you are not familiar with setting up or go with something a little less techy.

    Definitely user error. Most if not all of the issues that were brought up can be taken care of in the settings.

    You also dont have to wait for your contract to be over. You can buy any phone you want to thats compatible with your carrier. If your phone is that bad i would suggest doing this.
    Or a hard reset if your phone is that buggy but none of it is user error.

    I have a Moto X 2014 in great condition, be glad to do a straight trade. It's an AT&T edition, though. I can get it unlocked.

    He needs an iPhone it's just a phone and doesn't allow you to customize it, then he will complain about there being no back button.

    Sounds like you have the issues not the phone. If you spend good money for a device then throw it on the floor like a 3 year old, maybe you shouldn't have that device. Grab you a couple tin cans and a long piece of string and start there or find a pay phone, if they still exist.

    The Note 4 is just too smart for some people. If the OP can't be bothered to go through the settings menu and customize the device then an iPhone won't help either.

    Take it easy.... look, not every phone works for all. Different sizes, different features, different functionality. Everyone has their own personal use case and the phone they love, you might hate.

    Something that I always try to remind myself when talking about my personal tastes in tech; don't make the mistake of assuming everyone else's experiences match my own.

    I'e owned a Note 4 and a Note Edge since last January and have nothing but good experiences with both phones.

    I've experienced none of the problems that the OP has.

    Many people join these forums to list problems they are having, get advice and the experiences of others, and can then ascertain if there is a fault or two with the device.

    All depends often on where you came from device - wise as to how easy or logically a new phone works for you first time out.

    I mistakenly sold my Note 3 too early and couldn't afford a Note 4. I fell in to Motorolaland, (my backup) and when I suddenly had to start using it as a "phone" for work after the Lolipop update I couldn't fathom how to answer a call and looked completely foolish for a day and a half.

    If you want to see if it can work for you, ask in these forums.

    If you have given up, try something else.

    I gotta say that the note 4 is one of the best phones I've ever had along with the s4. The only thing I can complain about is the 5.0.1 update Verizon stuck us with and is causing me to switch providers. But I will purchasing another unlocked note 4 to use because it's that good of a device

    But I want to soooo bad! Maybe it's time for him to move onto an iPhone. Simple, straight forward UI (user interface) without all the tweaks of Sammy's Sense UI. I've had my grips with my note 4 and moved onto the turbo 2 and couldn't be more happy. If I had to I would hesitantly go back to my note. Good luck!
