    The Note 4 was the last note I had and I wanted to know how many features will be missing from it when moving to the 7? I remember complaints about the Note 5 missing things.

    I'm not talking about removable battery. I'm talking about software features.

    Active apps widget is gone. On the s7 edge, you couldn't set an app to open "just once".

    Well that sucks...... I didn't even think about stuff being taken away..... I use those two features on my note 3 everyday..... oh well, guess I'll delete my active apps widget now so I can get use to not having it...

    Good thread. I have a Note 4 (had all previous Notes before) and I'm waiting on a hero in the form of LG's V20. However, if the V20 doesn't stack up, it will be S-Note 7.

    Didn't it seem like the v10 had all of the things that Samsung got rid of?

    Can I still have two apps open on the screen at once? I usually have my messaging app on the bottom and YouTube open on the top so I can watch videos and text at the same time

    No longer have simultaneous voice and data in 3G only in LTE (note 4 has 2 radios note 7 has 1). No longer has ir blaster. Battery cannot be removed.
    Voices and data very by carrier. I have Cricket which is ATT and I can use voice and data simultaneously with my S6 Edge plus and my Note 5.

    Absolutely right. I was referring to VZW. That's why I mentioned 3G. You don't have 3G.

    How often are you on 3G? I would think not very often. When I had version I never saw 3g even while traveling to small towns.

    Every day I drive through and often stop in an area of Wilmington, MA which is 3G. There are also many indoor locations I am on 3G. If I am on an LTE call and even drive through a 3G zone the phone call is dropped even if I am not simultaneously using data. No problem with Note 4,3,2 but epic fail since.

    Gotcha, I guess you will be holding on to that Note 4 for a very long time since pretty much all the phones have one radio now.

    True, I pre ordered a T-Mobile version. Going to get it unlocked to work on Cricket. You think Verizon will ever get away from CDMA?

    I've heard rumors but years and years away.
    If it were up to me WIFI and cell towers would be run by homeland security and private companies could purchase bandwidth. Our system should cover every cubic centimeter if USA with public secure wifi and/or gsm to ensure our communications cannot easily be disrupted. And no I don't wear tinfoil on my head.

    On the Note 4 you use to be able to write directly on the calendar, like a paper calendar. They removed it from the Note 5, I hope they added it back.

    No. It was the last Note with 2 radios. Definitely supports simultaneous voice and data over 3G but the voice is actually on LTE (correction).

    I don't even know of an area that is not LTE with Verizon anymore. Are you in VZW 3G areas a lot somehow? Edit: Drats, you already replied to a similar question, sorry.

    See post 12. All I did was answer op question. Don't kill the messenger. BTW. If you turn on advanced calling on the Note 4 you lose this ability so to keep it keep advanced calling off.

    Most importantly on an LTE call if you even briefly drive into a 3G or 1G zone the call is dropped. This doesn't happen with 2 radios unless you have no signal at all.

    I suspect you are in or at least drive through 3G zones far more often than you notice. I often notice 3G inside a building and LTE outside for example.

    This is true even in downtown Boston but even more common in burbs.

    Yup, sorry. I saw it just after I posted, then edited my post, I guess you replied quick before I edited. Thanks.

    That's odd. The fcc filing says that the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4 only has simultaneous voice and data over 4glte (svlte). It doesn't require volte like newer phones though for simultaneous voice and data over 4glte

    The Verizon Note 4 had 2 cellular paths (I think that's what you meant when you said radio). One for lte, one for cdma.
