    3 out of 4 Samsung note 4 phones we got one year ago started going into constant restart and stopped working. Was an intentionally introduced bug?
    Tried all prescribed recovery methods and ended up of a failed to download failed to boot messages. I am now using my reliable $50 windows phone.
    I will not buy another $700 phone that lasts one year of a two year carrier plan.

    Did you happen to send them to Samsung? If anything was corrupted, you can't just reflash, it has to have the OS removed and put back on.

    That can only be done at Samsung service centers.

    What specific variant of the Note 4 and what specific "recovery options" were tried?

    This is actually a possible symptom of a failing battery.

    If one of them is still working fine, move its battery into one of the failing ones. Quick and easy way to check.

    Hmmm... one year ago. This is (was) often a symptom of a failed update to MM. At the time, did you try a factory reset? In short, my Note 4 runs like a gem 6.0.1. Super phone and can be had for $200 right now on swappa (or so). Great phone. I'm keeping mine until I see how the Note EIGHT goes...

    I'm running a Note 3 - 3-1/2 years old - and it's still running fine.

    You could try reflashing the ROM - if the mmc (the chip in the phone where the ROM sits) isn't physically bad, that should fix the problem. (Caution - reflashing the ROM will give you a fresh, out-of-the-box phone, so back up anything you'll want to restore to the phone first - see http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...ml#post4268152 )
